Museum Day 2015 at Yuchengco Museum

It's one Museum I have not seen or been to. So when they had a free day I gathered myself early from bed and went to the RCBC Tower in Makati.

When I went there. The way to the Museum is paved with call center people smoking their lungs out. I wish the space in front the Museum should not be a smoking area. Gives less importance to a place of art and history.

The building is of four floors and I started at the fourth floor going down. There is this nice paiting that greets guests at the Museum. It's also a gift shop but again most Museums don't get to sell a lot like malls do. They have very interesting Filipiniana books on sale as well as souvenirs. 

The trip on the elevator was nice and led me to some interesting pictures of old Manila and an interesting map.

I turned 34.

It's another May 26th and my wish was simple. Just a normal day without stress and that no one talks about my birthday. I guess the simplest wishes do come true.

I got to celebrate alone and I know people understand why I have to do that. My real friends do.

I don't need celebrations and all that drama. Life is better when its simple besides I need to save money.

Torre de Manila versus National Museum of Natural History

The war seems to have been lost for the construction of the Torre de Manila. Many of the people who were fighting against the construction seemed to have quieted.

Meanwhile the Natural History Building once occupied by the Department of Tourism drags on and is even beyond the deadline that was posted in front of it.

With a budget amounting to almost half a billion pesos just to restore the building. You wonder how longer will it take since October 4, 2014.

My guess is that Torre de Manila will be completed first than the National Museum of Natural History. I bet many bosses of the National Museum have had their fare share of that money.

FREE Entrance at the Philippine National Museum for the whole Month of May 2015

The National Museum of the Philippines goes FREE for this month of May 2015 in celebration of National Heritage Month.

You can visit the two Museums for FREE and its waiving its normal free of Php 150.00. That is a lot of savings and at the same time you learn more and be closer to the once rich Philippine culture that has obviously decayed.

See the great Masters of painting, architecture, sculpture and their works on display and marvel how Manila was and what we can do to save it from our jejemon culture, capitalistic mindset of throw away this and that, and the idea that art is for the rich alone.

So instead of wasting your money and time at the mall. Just go to the National Museum and update yourself with so much culture and beauty. BTW the two Museums are fully air-conditioned.

The National Museum of the Philippines
Tuesday-Sunday, 11am-5pm.
P. Burgos Street, Ermita, Manila.

Aromateria's Beer Soap and Shelock Solid Perfume

Here are two more of Aromateria products that I have tried. I love their solid perfume and now I am loving the Beer Soap. I was supposed to buy yans at that time at Podium but instead bought soap and perfume. They are a bit on the expensive side but is still worth it.

National Day of Mourning, May 4, 2015, declared in the Philippines

(This post is just plain sarcasm on my part)

A day after the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight the president despite fears of taking the blame for the loss declared May 4, 2015 as a National Day of Mourning.

Many were heartbroken because they lost their bets on the fight. As well as their so called National Pride (aka #PinoyFried) over the loss of the so called Pambansang Kamao (National Fist) over to a black person called Mayweather.

Mommy D. will lead the mourning to commemorate the death of the so called Pride. For those who feel really lost they can just throw themselves at the funeral pyres that will be made during the finals and glory days of another event called UAAP.

There was also news that the fight was not judged properly because that at time the Pride of the Philippines have a shoulder injury.

Soon the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines, just to sound nice, will be issuing a meaningless oratio imperata for the sake of butthurt Philippines.
