Ah, yeah. - The new bridge. The new bridge. Yeah. So this is the Fort Santiago here? Oh, yeah. - Okay, good. So, he's gonna drop me off here, then I'm gonna go have a wander through there. - I will drop you there, on the corner. Okay, Dale.
Thank you, so much. - Oh, no, thank you. Ah, ah. - Thank you, brother. Thanks for your time, ah. - It was good.
No, thank you for your time, and for your... Thank you to Ben, for all his work. And, Dale, thanks for your kind. - Okay.

Tip no, to my son, no? - Yeah, give him the 500. Okay, thank you. It was very nice, okay? - Thank you, Dale. Thank you, thank you. - Okay, see you. Bye-bye, bye-bye, and bye, Ben. Okay.
Take care of yourself. Ah. - Thank you, and you take care as well. Be safe on these roads. Okay.
Okay, Dale. - That was fantastic. I enjoyed that, wee horse ride. It was a good way to get around. Looks like, maybe, medical students there.
That was a, a good way to, a good way to get around these streets. I've basically circled the whole Walled City, and I'm feeling fresh, you know? I'm not feeling tired, so it's good. This says "Exit Only." I think I need to go around this way. I might have to pay to get in.
Oh, yeah, there's an entrance fee here, but it's small. It's only, It's only 75 pesos to get in. 75. - Yeah. 75 pesos, just, like, $1.20 -$ 1.30, something like that. Hi. Hi. - ????.
What is this? - Old coin. Ah, it's okay. Huh? Old coins, yeah, really? - Old coin. Yeah. Old coins. - Can I look? Yeah. Old coin, same old coin.
Ah, how much? 1,500. 1,500?! Ohhh, okay. No, thank you. - How much, tell me how much? Ah, I don't want. Thank you. Okay. He's got old coins.
I thought he was gonna say, like, 100 or something like that. Yeah, he said 1,500. That's like Hello. - $27. Hi, how are you? - Hello.
Hi. - What is your name? She's... - Are you a vlogger? Yeah, are you a student? Yes, I'm student. - Ah, okay. What is your university? Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila. Ah, okay. And it's inside Intramuros?
Yes, yes. - Ah, okay. Can I ask what's your name? Dale. Ah, yes! Yeah. And... - She,
she said that she saw... - I watch your, all your vlogs. Ah, okay. And... I'm sorry. So you're studying today? It's the weekend.
Yeah. - Yeah. - It's Saturday, it's Saturday. Yes. We have, - We have classes Monday to Saturday. exam. - Really? Ah, wow. - Ah, yeah. So you're studying hard. Okay.
But today you're having a break, you're going inside the fort? - Yes. We just took a major exam. - Ah, okay. Ah, okay, good. - Both of us.
Okay. Nice to see you. Thank you. - Okay.
We've got a queue. This place is popular right here, the Fort Santiago. "1584," that's when they started building it.
So it was during two governorship periods, "84 to 90 and 90 to 93," that this was built, over nine years, and still standing to this day. Check it out. That is definitely original, right there. The original stone. Four, almost four and a half centuries old. And what is this? "Plaza de Armas." Ah, they're saying this was a big open space that they used for military drills and suchlike.
And this fort was also used to store the arms. All their ammunition and all that. Even up until, like, the Japanese were here, they were still using this fort, Fort Santiago.
It's just so well fortified, isn't it, that if you're gonna invade the country and take over, that's probably what you're gonna use as your military base. And what is through here? Oh, it's a museum. So there's a bunch of museums here, guys. Inside the fort, outside the fort. I'm probably gonna come back when I'm not vlogging, and do the museums.
It'll just take too long, and probably won't be that interesting for the vlog. Who is this bloke right here? There's no sign. Doesn't tell you who the bloke is. Yeah. He's apparently important enough to have his own statue, but not important enough to have a plaque next to the statue. That's very strange, isn't it? Oh, they're saying that is, José Rizal's, "Last Walk to Martyrdom Trail."
So they've marked out a trail, where Rizal was led to the firing squad, I assume. Yeah. Right at the end of the Spanish colonial era, he was fighting for freedom.
He was the Filipino nationalist, and the Spanish didn't like that, so they led him to his demise by firing squad. And here is the ocean. So this part is still out onto the ocean. The other parts of the Walled City, they are facing out now onto reclaimed land.
This is facing out onto the... Well, I guess a river that's going towards the ocean. Look how filthy it is. You wouldn't wanna go for a swim in there, would you? Oh, no.
And the new bridge right there, so... Yeah, after I'm done here in this fort, I'm gonna head over into the Chinatown, there. Right. Let's get back into the fort. "Baluarte de Santa Barbara." I believe "Baluarte" is the Spanish name for "Bastion."
I believe. Let's go in and check it out. Ah, it's nice and cold in here. They've got air conditioning.
Maybe I should just chill out here for a bit. I think they're... Hi. Oh, they're playing a video. Yeah, maybe I'll just, maybe I'll just sit here in front of the AC and pretend I'm, pretending I'm here to watch the video. I'm not.
Just here to soak up the AC. Ahhh. Okay, so, it's just like, it's just like a little museum in here. I thought you could get up onto...
I think you could get up on a ledge or something like that. It's just like a, a museum with toy... It looks like it's made of Lego or something. Yeah, it is made of Lego. It's a Lego version of "Saint Michael's College Laguna."
And a Lego crocodile. Okay. This was kind of a waste of time.
Hi, how are you? I'm good. - Good. There's a lot of big tour groups around, so, yeah, that's what's happening here. Eh, oh, yeah, that's the museum in there. I'm not gonna go in there. But there's a big, a big queue to get into the museum. Hello.
Hello. - Okay. It's so funny. She, she was, like, dancing around in front of the camera, and then as soon as I looked at her, she was like... Looked like I'd caught her doing something she wasn't supposed to be doing or something. But, yeah, this fort, it's just nice to walk around.
Guys, I wanna try and see if I can get up along the walls. That'd be nice. If there's like a wall you can walk along.
I think maybe here. Ah, it says, "No entry, temporarily closed." So, yeah, it looked like that's what this was. But now... Maybe that's a driving range or something like that for the golf course.
Yeah, it's all kinda fenced off. Yeah, it looks like over there is a way to get onto the, the edge of the sea, right there, but it's blocked off, unfortunately. Okay, guys, I'm dying in this heat. I just wanna find some refreshment and then get out of here, to be honest with you.
I don't know if there's any, like, cafes or anything like that inside this fort. There was definitely loads out on the streets, inside the Walled City. Either I'm getting something in here, or I'm getting something out there. There was tonnes of guys selling ice cream.
I'm getting a nice cold juice, I'm getting a sweet ice cream. I'm getting all that, guys. I'm getting nice and refreshed, that's what your man is getting. Hi. - Hi. - Hi. How are you? - I know you. Good.
Do you know where I can get a drink? Yes, yes! Okay. Good, okay. Hey! - Hi, how are you? Good. - Good? Okay, I'm just...
Yeah, I'm not standing around to talk to people, I'm just too thirsty, guys. I'm just too thirsty. I just don't know how they can do it, guys. I don't know how they can walk around wearing masks.
It is so uncomfortable without a mask, I just can't imagine. I remember the days when, like, I was in Dubai for a bit when they were forcing you to wear a mask outdoors. Thankfully, in Dubai, you don't have to be outdoors very often.
Yeah, most of the time you can... Everything's indoors there. But when you had to go outdoors and you were wearing a mask, it was just the most uncomfortable feeling in the world. So I've no idea how these people... I'd rather just stay in my house, to be honest with you guys. But, hey, if it works for them, it works for them.
Different genetics, though. Like, the Filipinos, they, they definitely sweat less than the Europeans. So, yeah, maybe it's not as... Maybe it's not as uncomfortable for them as it is for me. Got someone doing live music here.
Guitar, also wearing a mask. Ah, there's something. He's got some drinks from somewhere.
I think there's something going on here. Maybe this is drinks, guys. I see hot food. Somebody frying something there.
That's not what I want. I don't want anything hot. It has to be cold, guys. It has to be cold, refreshing, sweet and delicious. Okay, the guy's got Coke Zero there. I was hoping for something a bit more...
Ah, there we go, something like that. That's what I want, right there. Right there. In fact, that's got a big queue. Maybe I'll get something from here. They've got...
Oh, is it cold? Yes, sir. - Oh, ice cold. That's just what I want. One fresh mango juice, please.
What size, sir? Eh, big, big one, please. - Medium, large or jumbo? How much are they? 90. 90? Okay.
Hi. Hello. Okay. Thank you, so much. Thank you. - Thank you.
Okay, guys A vlogger. Ahhh. That's just what you want. That is just what you want.
If it wasn't for this cup, I would tank the whole thing, If it wasn't for the straw situation and lid, I would just tank the whole thing in one go. Ahhh. That is so refreshing.
We've got ice cream there as well. My hands are full at the moment. I think what I'm gonna do is find that McDonald's. Gonna find the good old Mickey D's, and then get an ice cream there and some air conditioning.
I think that's what I really need right now. - Sir! Guys, I've never felt this hot and uncomfortable for a while. My friend, ????. - Hi. Ah, you again. Where's McDonald's? McDonald's? - Yeah. This way, or this way?
Eh, there's, ehm, eh, many fast-food here. Jollibee. No, I need McDonald's Yeah. - From... In the end of this road, turn left. - Yeah? Okay.
And straight ahead, you gonna see McDonald's. - Oh, yeah. I remember, yeah. Thank you, brother. Thank you. - Lyceum. Lyceum, McDonald's. - Nice to see you. Thank you. Thank you, bro. - Dale! Okay. - I'm a follower.
Okay, good. Good, he's my follower. Okay, thank you.
Okay. I've got the directions to McDonald's, guys. Up here and over there.
In fact, there's something in here. It's a wee cafe or something. Ah, McDonald's, that's what yer man wants. And this over here is the second-oldest church in the Philippines, right there.
Ohhh. In fact, on the way to McDonald's, I've just passed this KFC, I just noticed that's a KFC. That'll do. I'm only after some ice cream and a nice, clean bathroom, guys. Ohhh, there we go. And some air conditioning. That's lovely.
Where can I throw my garbage? I don't see the bin. It's okay, sir. In here. - Ah, leave it? Ah, okay.
I'm gonna get ice cream. Is there a bathroom here, or not? Yes, sir, we have. In the other side. Other side? Okay, thank you. - Yes. Okay. - Okay.
Good. Everything I need. Garbage for the mango drink, ice cream, restroom, air conditioning. It's all I want.
Okay, good. Now, just to get myself an ice cream. Probably that, the "Strawberry Mango - Super Summer Kream Ball."
Oh, look what they have. You can get a Coke Zero float. A Coke Zero ice cream float. I think that's what I'm up for. Hi, brother. The Coke Zero ice cream float, please. - Coke Zero?
Yeah, ice cream float, please. - Ice cream float. Thank you. - For here or take away? Yeah, I will eat it here. Thank you. - For here. Okay. Anything else, sir? That's fine.
So it's like, a drink and a dessert at the same time. It's good. Two in one. Only 55 pesos as well. Yeah, it's only, like, $1. - Only 55 pesos, sir. It's good. You know it's cheap when you can pay for the whole thing with coins.
Ohhh. - Yeah, Philippine money. Yeah, good. Oh, fantastic. That's mine. Okay, thank you. - Thank you. Thank you so much, enjoy and you have a good day. - Thank you. Okay,
Coke Zero float. This is gonna be just the treat, guys. Just the treat.
Now, if I remember... Oh, there's a quiet area through here. I don't know why this is closed off, but everybody's through here. And then... Oh, I think it's like a...
You can book this for, like, a birthday party, or something like that. I'm just going to use it as my own private, VIP area for yer man. For the VIP vlogger right here. I don't know if you're allowed to, because it wasn't blocked off or anything.
And then everybody's sit... Look, there's like 100 people sitting out there. But this is nice and quiet. I'm gonna enjoy my Coke Zero float in peace. Oh ho ho.
I feel like I need a spoon for this as well. In fact, I'm definitely gonna need a spoon for this. Let's give it a slurp. Oh, yeah, delicious. I've been drinking Coke Zero vanilla flavour they have in Philippines. They have vanilla flavour Coke Zero.
I've been drinking Sir! - them plenty. Hi. No! No video is inside. No video inside? - No, no. Oh, I just video myself.
Yeah. Only me. - No, no, no. No, I'm not allowed? Okay, I'll go outside. - I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

Huh? Do you know Nikola Jokić? No. From Serbia. Serbia? Ah, we don't like basketball, we like football. Ah, yeah. - Football country. Football country.
Football country? - Yeah, you know Andy Robertson? Liverpool. Yeah. - Yeah? Okay, yeah. We're football country, only.

Hi, how are you? I'm follow you. - You getting some KFC? Okay, good. Okay, that was lovely and refreshing, that Coke float.
Now I'm all cooled down. Maybe I can walk all the way to Chinatown across that bridge. Let's, let's go for it. I think the bridge is over here. In fact, this bridge, It doesn't look like I can walk across it, to be honest. Look, it's just vehicles, here.
It says, "No entry," and then it's just vehicles. Huh. I dunno. Can walk? No, sir. Okay. Thank you.
Ah, I see over here there's a footpath over the bridge. Fantastic. Yo! Yo, what's up, bro? What's up, bro? - What's up, bro? - Yo, yo, yo, yo, yo! I found some of your videos.
Really?! Yes. - What's my name? But I don't... I know you. Yeah. - Ah! I know, you're lying. You're lying to me. - No, no, I'm not. Ah, really, huh? - Yes.
Where you see my videos? You're travelling Philippines right now? Yes. - Yes. Okay, good. Okay, see you guys. Okay. - I will watch your vlog. Okay, thank you. - And comment on your video.
You don't know my name, so I don't know how you're gonna watch my vlog. Caught him out. Okay. Hello. Hey, how are you? Hi, sir. - Ah, beautiful doggie. Hello. - Hi. I think this is actually like a place for couples to hang out or something.
Or young couples. That seems to be what it is. It's like, a lot of, like, young couples who are coming here to hang out. Got a guy here, in the sea who looks like he's collecting plastic. It looks like he's collecting plastic bottles for recycling. So, yeah, as you can see, he's just picking up bits of plastic, and then storing them in these big bags.
I guess it's one good way to get the river a bit cleaner. But he's picking and choosing. It's not like he's cleaning up all the garbage, obviously. He's obviously just looking for the... - Hey! Hey, man!
What will give him profit. - ????. Hey, how are you, skater boy? I'm alright. Good. Is this Binondo this way? Yes. Okay, so I just walk, and then have to turn right? Yes, yes, yes, yes. - Ah, okay. Chinatown, right? Yes. - Okay, I will go have a look.
Okay. - Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you too, skater boy. Okay. Yeah, so skating seems to be a popular sport around these parts.
They're into basketball, they're into skating. Football, not so much. Every country I go to, I get myself a football top.
Like a local football team top. Either the national team, or one of the local teams. I don't know if I'm gonna be able to do that here in the Philippines. I've never seen anybody wearing a Philippines football shirt at all.
Or even any football shirt. I haven't even seen, like, Manchester United, or Chelsea, or Real Madrid, anything like that. So, we'll have to see, but that is perhaps on the next video, that will be my mission.
I'll go to some big market and see if I can get myself one of the Philippines national team football top. Hi, Dale. - Hi. Dale Philip! Hi.
Okay, guys, I'm here in the Chinatown. Looking for a food street. I just seem to see a bunch of, like, commercial buildings around here. Hi, guys. How are you? - Hello. - Hi! Hi. - Hello.
Hello. People are friendly. That's good. - Hello. People friendly everywhere.
Hi. Hi. - Hi. - Hello. - Hello. Where's, like, a food street? Ah, food st... Ah, around Ilang-Ilang Street. Ilang Street? - Yeah. Okay, I will have a look. Thank you.
Ilang Street, apparently, is a food street. Oh! You're scared of me? Okay, I'll look for Ilang Street, which, according to Google Maps, it's not this one, but the next one. And I'm already starting to see some, some food. That looks like a bakery right there. Ilang-Ilang Street? Ilang-Ilang? Ilang. This one? Ah, okay. - This. It's food street? Yes. Food, I can get food there? Yes. - Okay, thank you.
Okay, so this is it here. Eh, Ilang Street. It doesn't look like a food street to me. It looks like some backstreet. It looks like some total, total backstreet. Where are they sending me? Ah, so there is the Ilang-Ilang Restaurant, right there.
That is where I'm gonna go if I don't see anything else. I asked for an actual food street. And this is just, literally, the only restaurant on this street.
Maybe I should just jump in there, guys. I don't think there's anything else up there. Yeah. Okay, I guess I'm going in here then.
The Ilang-Ilang Chinese restaurant. Hello. - Hello. One person, please. Yes, sir.
Okay. Yeah, I need cold. Somewhere cold. With the fan, yeah. This one has. This here? Okay, they're gonna bring the fan over to me.
Okay. I don't think these AC units are on. But that's good.
Oh, good. Yeah. That's what I need. Okay. Thank you.
Ohhh, this nearly flew away. Okay. This is the menu, here, in English. That's good.
What is the best one? What do you recommend? This one, sir. These are all the specialities. Yes. - Okay. Lomi, what is lomi? Eh, the big noodle.
Big noodles? Ah, with meat, or no meat? With. Soup. Oh, it's like soup and noodles, and meat? Yes. - Okay, I will, I will take that, the lomi. I will take that and something to drink. Yeah, Coke Zero, please. - Yes, sir. Okay. Thank you. - It's enough?
So they had like 7 or 8 specialities on a list of, like, 100 things on the menu. So I just tried the one that was number 1, it said "Lomi." And she said that it's like a thick type of noodle, so... Never tried lomi before. This is the, the first time.
Good. I like to try new things. Okay, so this is my lomi.
So it's thick noodles. Yeah. - Egg noodles, right? Yeah. Okay, and this is Filipino dish, or Chinese? Chinese. Chinese? Ah, okay. I Googled it and it says it's Filipino.
Hopefully, I didn't come all the way to Chinatown in Manila, just to eat Filipino food. That would be kinda crazy. Ah, a little bowl. Okay, thank you so much. Yeah. - This is... Yeah, so most people in Chinese restaurants, they share the food. So,
ordinarily, they would put, like, this in the middle, and everyone would take, like, a small bowl each. That's usually how it works in Chinese restaurants. But, yeah, I'm here myself. So check this out.
It's these thick, thick noodles with this kinda thick soup and chunks of, I believe it's beef. She said there's meat in there. Yeah, it's little chunks of beef in there as well. These thick noodles. See that, right there, how thick they are? It looks like shreds of egg.
Like a, a thin omelette and some kinda cabbage, or something like that. Ho ho ho. And the portion is huge. I'm gonna be absolutely stuffed after this. I was hoping to come to Chinatown and, hopefully, there was a food street with vendors on the street and stuff and try, like, a bunch of different things. I think I'm just gonna eat this bowl of lomi, this huge bowl of lomi, and then that's gonna be me, finito.
Mmmh. Oh, yeah, the soup, it's more like a thick gravy. It's more like a thick... Mmh. A really nice gravy. And the noodles, very chewy.
Mmh. Oh, yeah. Thick, chewy noodles and then that shredded cabbage. I think it's cabbage.
Shredded cabbage, or, yeah, I think it's maybe, like, Chinese cabbage or something like that. That's giving a little bit of crunch to it as well. And the meat, oh, yeah. Ho ho ho. These thin slices of meat. Look at that.
These thin slices of beef. What a portion. It said on the menu, this was only like 200 or something.
That can't be 200 pesos for that, surely. If so, that's a bargain for the amount of meat that you get in it. Mh. Mmh. The broth, it's so flavourful, so thick, so seasoned. It's like, it's like a British-style gravy mixed with, like, a chicken broth, or something like that.
I don't know exactly what the flavours are. It's just very nice. Very peppery. Mmh. Those chewy noodles, the thin slices of beef. Everything's perfect about this.
I like it. This is definitely something I would eat again. Especially when I'm hungry, Especially a big bowl like that, would be something satisfying to eat when you're hungry.
Now, I wonder if I should be eating this with a spoon. I wonder if it's gonna be easier than the chopsticks. In fact, maybe a combination of the two. Like that, to tidy up the spoon. Mmmh. What's your name?! My name is Dale.
What is your name? Dale! Your name's not Dale, my name is Dale! I asked her what her name is. What is your name? Shy girl. Okay.
I'm making light work of this bowl, actually. I'm not full yet, at all. It's a big old portion.
A big old portion, but I'm making light work of it. What's your name? My name is Dale, what is your name? Oh, Dale. She keeps asking my name, then running away. What's your name? My name is Dale. What is your name? Keeps doing it. Keeps doing it. (x2)
Asking me my name and then running away. Hi, how are you? What is your, what is your name? Mine is Thomas. Thomas.
Ah, Thomas? Ah, okay. - Yeah. Picture, please. - Oh, picture? Okay. I'm just eating the lomi. It's nice. One, two...
Thank you. Okay, no problem. - Thank you. Are you eating here, or you're just... - Yeah. - Yeah. Oh, you're eating here as well? Okay, good.
Thank you. - The food here is very good. Thank you. Ah, yeah. Do you know, is lomi Filipino or Chinese? Chinese. - It's Chinese. Ah, it's Chinese? Ah, okay. So Google is wrong.
I'm just making sure. Google is t... Google is normally right, but everyone is telling me it's Chinese. So, I'm gonna believe, I'm gonna believe I'm eating Chinese food, and it's, it's very nice. Mmh.
Ahhh. It was good. Very good. Yeah, I cleared it. Okay.
270. - So it's 270. Okay. Okay. Thank you. Thank you, sir. - See you next time, okay?
Okay, guys, I will take a wee stroll with my Coke Zero. It is... Ooh. That was nearly a twisted ankle. It's nearly nighttime already.
In fact, it is nighttime. It's dusk right here. And I'm gonna go for a wee stroll, because sometimes, well, a lot of times when you're in a Chinatown, it becomes lively at nighttime. There's all sorts of street vendors selling food and suchlike.
It's like that in Chinatown in Bangkok and such places, you know? I'm gonna see if I can find a street like that. Wow, that is a lot of oranges. A lot of oranges.
Okay, now I actually feel like I'm in Chinatown, guys. We've got the red lanterns, we've got the dragons on the lampposts, in this nice, wee park right here. So, I just checked with Google Maps, and apparently I was right on the edge of Binondo. And it's this huge area.
It's a huge, huge area. I was just basically right on the edge of it. So, yeah, I'm just having a good 'ol explore right here. We've got more skater boys here. Skating, a very popular sport in the Philippines, it seems like.
I'm seeing them everywhere. This is nice, a wee place for people to chill out. A bit noisy.
We're in amongst, like, - Hi. Hiii. four lanes of traffic there, and four lanes of traffic there. Hello, how are you? What? Okay. No touch, no touch. What's your name? - Okay. My name is Dale, what is your name? Anna. - This Anna. Oh, good.
Justin. And you like the Boston Celtics basketball team. Boston. - Yes. Okay. Not really...
That wouldn't be my choice of team, if I supported any basketball team. And who is this over here? What? Hello. Who is this? Who is this? (x2) Who is this man here? Looks like a religious figure right here. But again, no, no plaque, so you don't know who it is. Okay, bye-bye, guys.
Bye-bye. See you. Okay, I'm gonna, I'm gonna... Oh, wait.
Okay, no traffic lights, so I'm just gonna have to be brave. The magic hand, the magic hand. Hello. - Okay. This looks good to me.
The Lucky Chinatown, The Lucky Chinatown Mall looks good to me for some air conditioning, guys. This area, according to Google Maps, is like the north area of Binondo, and it's all, like, malls and stuff. And I think it's more like local stuff down that way. So, yeah. I'm not really in the mall for anything other than the AC, guys. I'm just gonna walk around for 5 minutes and...
Hi, brother. I'm going to soak up some AC. Aye.
