Urban Adventure - Makati on Foot

What to do when you're saving up for future travels yet itching to go out without spending money? Just step out of the house, explore a couple of blocks and amuse yourselves with the sights you normally ignore during an ordinary week! :)

Yesterday morning, I ventured away  from my usual running route along Rockwell Drive and passed through unfamiliar alleys in Makati. Since it was a Saturday, not many people were around and I was able to enjoy the streets without having to dodge the crowds. I found two places which I've been meaning to check out - Museo ng Makati fronting the Poblacion Barangay hall and the Filipinas Heritage Library along Ayala Triangle. I was even able to take a photo in the middle of Paseo de Roxas which is always congested with cars on busy days. 

I nearly crawled on my way back home due to thirst and the heat. When I mapped my route using one of the online distance calculators - Map My Run, I found out that I covered a minimum of 10KM that morning. No wonder I was was so hungry when I got back! :P

Makati-Mandaluyong Bridge
This boat floating at the Pasig River has always amused me
Ayala Triangle
Ah,  a rare sight - a deserted Paseo de Roxas!  
Jaime Velasquez Park at Salcedo Village - didn't know this existed :P
