Noon: Take jeepney ride to Quiapo Church ( I planned a walking tour but didnt work because there was major religious event on that day (

Evening at Quiapo Muslim Town would be a great experience (

Wednesday – January 11, 2017

Book a day tour to Corregidor Island (

Night: Go to Makati to get a massage?

Thursday – January 12, 2017
