Description: What I find most interesting is this row of candle-vendors who set up shop right beside one of the oldest Catholic churches in the Philippines. Quiapo boasts not only a beautiful cathedral, but also a nearby hub of stalls selling people-shaped and different colored candles. Are you angry at someone? Or want to get rich? Or maybe want the love of your life to pay attention to you? They have candles and prayers for any occasion. You only have to buy them for a few pesos and a big grain of salt.
