Lydia's Lechon Marikina Adds New Wing

Lydia's Lechon along Marcos Highway is famous for take-out due to its convenient location along the highway. People are bound to pass it along their way home to Marikina and Antipolo.

They do have a dine-in area though it is very small and usually full.

Recently though, they have expanded and took over the additional space facing the other side of Burger King. This new area can accommodate more customers and includes convenient parking in front of the new wing.

Lydia's Lechon also offers delivery services as they call it "LechOn Delivery". You can place your order by calling them at 682-8927 and 646-0871. For more information, visit their official website at

Updated Bluewave Parking Guidelines

The Bluewave Parking lot just beside the Bluewave Marquinton Mall offers free parking for mall goers. However, recently, Bluewave management enforced additional guideline on the use of their parking lot.

The parking lot will now be open from 10:00am till 1:00am everyday. However, overnight parking is not permitted. And to enforce this, a hefty fine of P5,000. will be imposed to owners who leave their vehicle after said hours.

Since Jollibee, Tapa King and Starbucks all open and offer breakfast as early as 7:00am, parking is still available at the back and in front of the mall so it won't pose any problems as to finding a parking space.

Starbucks, Yellow Cab and the movie theaters close as late as around 12:00 - 1:00am. So just make sure you check the time if you happen to watch a movie and spend a late dinner or hang around for coffee. Around this time, you could always move your car from the side parking to the front.

A High Rise Marikina River

Its no secret that when heavy rains pour over the Metro, Marikina River is usually part of the news updates on radio and TV. And since the Marikina River passes through several towns and cities, it is a concern to be alerted especially if you live near any stretch of the riverbanks.

And when Marikina River's level rises, the river doubles in width. All the bikelanes, walkways and roads on both sides of the River slowly get submerged.
It doesn't necessarily have to rain hard in Marikina City for the river to rise as the higher areas of Quezon City, the hills of San Mateo and Montalban mountains in Rodriguez, Rizal all contribute their rainfall to the Marikina River. What is usually a calm scenic route of a river becomes a raging river with waters speeding at faster rates.

As long as the rains aren't non-stop, the river goes back to its normal level in a day or two.

The Marikina River: a gentle river turning into a dangerous gush in stormy weather.
