Anson Yu

An accidental street walker, Anson’s love interest on everything Manila was born out of the very place he grew up and worked in. In the midst of wandering around Binondo’s busy thoroughfares, the history bug bit him and the rest is history. Apart from geeking and writing about Manila’s layered history, Anson also delights in sharing his research as a most charming guide of our team. In his spare time, he prowls the streets of the city with his trustee camera. He shows-off his photographic skills with some snapshots here in our home site (thank you Anson!)
