    BEAUTIFUL STAINED GLASS WINDOWS

    by davidjo Written Jan 26, 2015

    Sta. Rosario church is kinda hard to take a photo of as it is surrounded by buildings but i managed to get photos of the beautiful stained glass windows. Not too many churches in the Philippines have stained glass windows these days.

    Sta. ROSARIO CHURCH

    by davidjo Written Jan 26, 2015

    Sta. Rosario Catholic church is along Ortigas Avenue Extension in Pasig and is considered unusual as it enshrines the 19th century Virgin Mary which is said to be quite different from others as she has a moon under her feet. The church was granted a special papal blessing in its jubilee year to mark its 50th anniversary. The first chapel was built in 1955 but the church that stands there now was built in 1967.

    Tiendesitas

    by machomikemd Written Nov 4, 2014

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The newly renovated Tiendesitas Complex is a good destination in Pasig City where you can shop for many kinds of local arts and crafts and even regional food and cuisine and sweets that are not usually found in the major malls of the Capital Region and the shoppers can now buy in air conditioned comfort as the place is now air conditioned and is spanking new after being renovated. Tiendesitas offerings include native food, fashion wear and accessories, furniture, antiques, handicrafts, personal care and novelty items, pets, plants, and other Philippine–made products.

    Tiendesitas is a huge flea market type of shopping area in Pasig City located at the busy C5 highway. It is owned by the owners of the Greenhills Commercial Center who envisioned to have a mini greenhills type of flea market style of shopping where you can find local and international arts and crafts, a big pet selling and grooming area and budget clothes and other accesories. It is patterned after the Chatuchak market of Bangkok, Thailand (althoug it is now air conditioned while Chatuchak is not). Like in any other flea markets, Haggling is the norm here.

    Shopping hours are

    from 12 noon to 12 midnight everyday

    according to their website:

    Tiendesitas is Pasig City's newest shopping and family entertainment destination owned by Ortigas & Company. Tiendesitas caters to foreign and domestic shoppers looking for the best Philippine products. It showcases the best that the Philippines can offer - native food, fashion wear and accessories, furniture, antiques, handicrafts, personal care and novelty items, pets, plants, and other locally made products. More than 450 traders, mostly entrepreneurs from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao are offering specialty merchandise.

    Tiendesitas sits on a 30,000 square meter area within Frontera Verde, which houses 12 Maranao architecture-inspired pavilions called "villages." Indigenous materials used in creative ways adorn these villages using chemically-treated cogon grass for roof, old kalesa wheels into chandelier frames to light the restrooms, and duyans (hammock) scattered around to allow shortbreaks amidst frenzied shopping activities. The result is a stylized and unique Filipino architecture. The design of the complex also gives attention to the needs of the disabled and the elderly.

    At night, shoppers can be treated to acoustic and live band performances. There is also an area dedicated to special shows, exhibits, and unique Filipino presentations. Kids and adults can also enjoy riding the kalesa, which goes around Tiendesitas.

    What to buy: Tiendesitas offerings include native food, fashion wear and accessories, furniture, antiques, handicrafts, personal care and novelty items, pets, plants, and other Philippine–made products.

    Capital Commons

    by machomikemd Updated Aug 6, 2014

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Capital Commons is a huge Commercial-Residentail Complex (Condominiums and High Rise Office Spaces and Restaurants) that is currently being finished at the former Rizal Province Capital Grounds in Barangay Kapitolyo in Pasig City, which is part of the Ortigas District. This complex is being built by a local real estate conglomerate called Ortigas & Company and it currently has a few restaurants and bars in the area (this place is not yet finished, hence only a few restos and bars at present). They have seasonal food trucks at the grounds too to entice people to flock to it besides the few commercial food places at present.

    Most Estabishments are open from 10:00 am to 12:00 am everyday

    according to their website:

    Capitol Commons is poised to set the benchmark for modern urban development in the region. Rising from the former Rizal Provincial Capitol, this new urban destination features 10 hectares of prime commercial and residential developments with 50% of its area dedicated to open spaces.
    Unparalleled privileges that Capitol Commons residents and guests will enjoy:
    · A showcase of international brands and lifestyle retailers at the Estancia Mall.

    · Residential towers offering a private sanctuary to its residents.

    · A revitalized Unimart that would provide the widest array of local and international grocery items.

    · The Paragon, an entertainment hub with 6 state-of-the-art digital cinemas, delightful restaurants and lifestyle stores.

    · Capitol Commons Park – almost a hectare of space that is perfect for relaxing and leisure activities.

    Metrotent

    by machomikemd Updated Aug 6, 2014

    The Metrotent of the Metrowalk Complex of Pasig City is a mixed used type of big tent where many activities like parties, conventions, symposiums and several car shows are done every year and it is fortunate that on a visit to Pasig, I happen to watch a car show ongoing in the Metrotent and what else to do but watch the car show and to legally ogle at the pretty car models in the car show!

    after the activity, you can then eat and have a brewskie at the Metrowalk Commercial Center just beside it.

    according to their website:

    Metrotent Convention Center (MCC) is the widest party tent in the Metro.
    It has different areas in which guests can chill out, relax, and have fun. This includes: the drop- off area (4 meters high), the lobby area, the Al Fresco area (smoking area), two (2) dressing rooms with separate showers and toilets, the driver’s lounge (cafeteria), and comfort rooms.

    For the Main Hall, it has the highest height of 9 meters and the lowest height of 6 meters. The Main Hall measures 1,440 square meters, while the lobby measures 168 square meters. It has the capacity to hold a maximum of 2,000 persons per event. This well-conditioned tent has three (3) chandeliers, uses induction lights, has its own panel board (serves as outlet) of 400 amperes, and a standby generator.

    Relax at the Spa

    by JaneCajuguiran Written May 1, 2006

    The Spa is one of the best, if not the best, spa available in the City. It is easily accessible from pasig, quezon city, Makati, Mandaluyong, Antipolo or Marikina as it is just along the C5 highway just before reaching Eastwood (from ortigas). Trained masseuse are there to give you the most relaxing and exotic massage to make you come back for more. Even after your massage, a lounge is available for you to while away your time. Complimentary juice or tea will be served upon your request. Other services are available such as a manicure/pedicure, gym, sauna, pool, etc.

    Truly, one of the best experiences in a spa I have ever had.

    Tiendesitas

    by JaneCajuguiran Written Jan 28, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pasig is really a good place to stay whether transient or permanent. It has several hotels for the tourists, malls to cater to its shopping visitors and other places of interest. I would however recommend going to the newly opened Tiendesitas right along the C5 highway. It has several things for shoppers with cheap prices. for sale are clothes, shoes, furniture, textile, animals (yes they have them too!), handicraft, souveneir items, etc. They also have a marketplace to shop for food coming from different parts of the country. At the heart of this place is an area where they have a stage where live bands and other performers play for customers who want entertainment but don't want to spend much. You can spend just 35 pesos on a meal while watching them do their gigs.

    One of my classmates dared to sing with the band. all smiles during the christmas party
