Many of you probably may have not had the chance to visit the "bagsakan" or flower center of the entire Metro Manila. Flowers of all kinds, from Baguio, Cebu and Laguna are all brought here (hence "bagsakan") and displayed in over a hundred stalls, which in turn sell these to florists and passersby.
To see the most incredible blooms before the florists arrive, visit the area around 2-3 in the morning. Yes, AT DAWN. By 7 or 8AM, you'd be left with nothing to gape at but leaves and some red and yellow Caribbeans.
Tip: Ready-made bouquets are cheaper - and fresher - at dawn. I don't know why. Nevertheless, it's so difficult to choose from so many you'd end up going around first before finally settling on one choice.
There are three divisions in this particular area, by the way. It's a long street transected by two other streets (Dapitan and I-forgot-the-street-name) at 90 degrees.
And please remember this for good measure. The area near Dapitan Street sells at TWICE the price than those found on the other end. Be forewarned.
This visit was made because of the on-line flower gallery I had to make for a business. Please visit it here and click on Our Flower Gallery. Thanks!
