Local

Manila has a local version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame: the Eastwood City Walk of Fame, located in the mixed use complex that is Eastwood City in Quezon City.

Eastwood City Walk of Fame



Calling all City Daily Photo bloggers yet again! Time flies by so fast and it's less than a week until our next theme day. The theme for February 1 is Wood. (I'm going to like this one again. I love the many textures of wood!) The poll for the March theme closes on January 31, so please vote and spread the word!

Hey, Hilda, why are you being so modest. Show us your star!

Leif Hagen said...

Where's Hilda's star?!! She's our favorite, famous, funny, charming, clever, CDP blogger!

bfarr said...

Intersting. I bet Hollywood thought they had the only walk of fame!

James said...

Very cool! I just took similar pictures last week in Hollywood California.

Chuck Pefley said...

so, Hollywood jumps the ocean, like a curb, and continues on?

afv said...

Hmmmm... never heard of the stars!

Olivier said...

j'aime bien cette tradition, mais j'avoue que je ne connais pas tous ces noms

Louis la Vache said...

Did you find «Louis'» star?

Don and Krise said...

This is pretty interesting Hilda. Can you give us a hint as to who these names belong to?

Unseen Rajasthan said...

This is so interesting and great !!Nice post HIlda !!

Hilda said...

Olivier, Don:
They're all local Filipino actors so I doubt if any of you would have heard of them. These three in particular acted mostly during the 1940s and 1950s; I just know of them because their old movies were shown on TV when I was in grade school.

AFV:
And you were probably not even born yet when their movies were shown on TV! :)

Pssst Hilda, I remember Zaldy Zhornack, hindi ba during the time of Ramil Rodriguez ba siya? Hehehe, just a thought.

Paty said...

Rob and Mandy said...

Lianne said...

Thanks for the Theme Day reminder. I can never get it together and make it. Maybe this time.

Andreea said...

I like this kind of tourist attraction even though I find a bit silly. I've seen the ones in Hollywood and London and a "palm" version of it in Cannes. Didn't know that Manila has one too.

VP said...

I don't know much of these stars, but I suppose they are famous there. A very nice idea anyway!

Clueless in Boston said...

The local walk of fame is a pretty good idea and is probably good for local business and a source of local pride.

Never been to that place. Sure na bibisitahin ko yan sa bakasyon ko.

Kilala ko lang si Jaime dela Rosa dahil sa mga kwento ng Nanay ko.
