Quezon Memorial Circle
For others, they find Quezon Memorial Circle as their perfect place for jogging, meeting someone, other activities, and the perfect spot for Pokemon Go gamer as their lure location but for me – this landmark commemorates the significance of the late President Manuel L. Quezon and the Commonwealth of the Philippines. I have visited this park several times, but it’s my second time entering the museum.

Before leaving Quezon Memorial Circle, finally I was able to see the amazing details of the structure from afar, without the stores by the entrance. This spot is clean and surrounded by trees but the building on the background is very noticeable. I am just curious if how will Quezon City Circle looks like at night once they’re done with the construction.
