Night of October 21, we’re back in Manila! We’re very much lucky because Sir Charles let us stay at his condo unit in Grand Riviera Suites (Alhamdulillah we don’t need to spend a buck!). Since we still have couple of days before returning to our place of origin (Malabang), we thought of places to go in Metro. Lyz arranged our itinerary for our 2-day stroll in Metro.
Proposed IT was: (Day1 – Art in Island, Mckinley Hill; Day2 – MOA, Divi, EK or Star City and Comedy Bar at night).
Art In Island is the biggest 3D Museum in Asia with regards to the number of 3D paintings and is located in Cubao, Quezon City. Admission is P500 for adults and P400 for students, PWDs, and Senior Citizens. Children below 3 feet are free. They also have a Birthday Promo (free entrance on your birthday, a day before, and a day after) and a Group Promo (minimum of 15 pax gets 20% off).
We visited the museum on October 22 and reached the place at 11AM.
You’re allowed to be barefooted but better to have your socks on since they will let you deposit your shoes at the receiving area. Upon entering the museum, you’ll be amazed of how wide, clean and cool (literal) the place is.
What makes this museum unique is you become part of the art and you need to be creative in your poses. Thanks to my cousin Lyz who photographed me and these were among the pictures that I had in the museum.
So much fun we had here at Art In Island. Tiring but it’s worth it!! 🙂
The original plan was to have a side trip to Vigan, Ilocos after the convention but due to Typhoon Lawin, the travel agency that we contacted didn’t accommodate us. Meanwhile, a friend of Ate Mila and Kuya Doc (and now our friend too), Sir Charles Basuel who is a humble millionaire and a very generous man invited us for breakfast at his house in Clark. To our surprise, we didn’t expect he’ll bring us to Subic. OMG!
And the breakfast is served…. :p
They call this “Patupat”.. Pangasinan delicacy. It’s like biko but it has no gata.
Super yummy Patupat
After our early lunch, we jumped off for our trip to Subic.. It’s a 2-hour drive from Clark. We’re glad that the weather was fine that time. At 11:45 we arrived in Subic and went straight to Ocean Adventure. It’s Sir Charles’ treat. 🙂
1st Show: Sea Lion Marine Patrol
2nd Show: Wild World
3rd Show: Aman Sinaya – Legend of the Ocean
4th and Last Show: Dolphin Tales
My favorites are the Dolphin Tales and Aman Sinaya. It’s great that they do not only offer entertainment but they taught us lessons to be humane to sea creatures.
We left Subic at 5:30PM. To sum-up, it was a marvelous experience..
