For instance, I have never known that there is such a building called El Hogar, the subject of my sketch, in Binondo until now, even though I had lived in this area for 20 years. The building is old and not well-maintained, but if one would only spend a few minutes to look into the intricate architectural detail of the structure, one would surely agree that it is actually an impressive building.
I learned about El Hogar upon visiting the website of Urban Sketchers Philippines; El Hogar was the theme of the group's sketch walk last February.

I am really looking forward to the surprises awaiting me in my next sketching adventure.
