Pasadena City Hall

Having lived in Ilocos most of my life, I liken Pasadena to Vigan, with respect to ardent historical preservation. Host to the Rose Bowl and Tournament of Roses Parade, the city in the San Gabriel Valley typifies turn-of-the-century architecture, best seen in original American craftsman-style homes listed among the National Register of Historic Places.

Locating the Pacific Asia Museum and walking up Colorado Blvd (from Fair Oaks to Los Robles), I had time to appreciate the 1920s Pasadena City Hall. Fully restored to LEED standards and retrofitted to withstand earthquakes, it stands dignified and stately.

Tea is all you’d want on a sweltering day.
