The NLEX is connected smoothly with EDSA. Before I knew it the bus was circling its way around the rotunda graced by the mighty scuplture depicting Andres Bonifacio. From the bus window I saw the said monument made by National Artist Guillermo Tolentino, flood lights bathing it with a dramatic glow. When you see that mighty landmark you are 100% sure that you are now in "Monumento" in Caloocan City.

It is one of my favorite places to visit while in Makati and one of the best parks I have seen in the Philippines.

One of the benefits of being in the province is the affordable price of good food. I chanced upon a merienda peddler on a bicycle and bought a kind of native pastry that I rarely see. I got 2 pieces of flat and saucer-like butchi for Php 5.00 each. The typical butchi is round with generous coating of sesame seeds. The butchi for my merienda (snack) is coated with sugar and has tasty mongo bean filling inside. It is a delicious and healthy match for coffee or tablea (native chocolate), a treat for a relaxing afternoon in Bulacan.
