Calesa is a horse-drawn carriage introduced by the Spanish in the 18th century. They are rarely seen in the streets nowadays except in tourist sites and some rural areas. The calesa driver is called a "cochero". I rode in a calesa twice in my whole life---first in Intramuros and in Vigan. And I felt bad for the horse on both times!
This was taken in Tiendeditas, a shopping complex at Frontera Verde in Pasig City.

This is so lovely! Nice shot.
What a fancy ride!
Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog.
The horse-drawn is beautiful - but the horses do not have an easy life ....... that's right
It certainly looks bright - it looks rather a heavy carriage for a small horse.
Now I starting to miss Philippines! ^_^ Very colorful "Calesa" we call it in my hometown as "Tartanilla" sounds Spanish hehehe not Bisaya.
Beautiful...the yellow really stands out in this photo. How I would love a ride!
Great shot. The carriage looks so lovely!
I do often felt bad for the working hard horses :(
Thanks for dropping by, Luna
They look really great.
Lovely shot, Miranda!
