Art Paradise at Pinto Art Museum

Posted on Updated on


A one-hour ride from where I live lies a Santorini-inspired structure called Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo. For a Php 180 entrance fee, Php 100 for students but they must bring their student IDs. You get to enjoy viewing different varieties of art pieces ranging from indigenous to contemporary arts. The paintings and other art structures here will give you an awe-struck, plus, the museum’s ambiance is really relaxing.

Though finding it is quite a challenge for us. Mainly because of our unfamiliarity in Antipolo, but I’ll assure you that visiting this place would be worth it. From the museum’s architecture and landscaping, down to all the art pieces they house, the Pinto Art museum is captivating in every way. Every inch of this place deemed to be photogenic. The moment I set my feet on its grounds, I know, I fell in love.

The simple entrance of Pinto Art Museum

I’ know that this would be an exciting adventure for us. The simplicity of their entrance is far way beyond of what’s inside.

And so our exploration to Pinto Art Museum began.

The longest painting mural I’ve ever seen in my whole life. Isn’t it amazing?
Mesmerised of all these paintings.

There is Café Tan-aw (Pinto Café) inside the museum but it’s a bit pricey though.

But because we can’t bear our hunger anymore, we’ve decided to try the food in Café Tan-aw. We had dessert and two different flavored iced teas and it’s good, it helped us refresh and satisfy our hunger.

Pinto Art Museum is definitely a place where time relives the past. Everything about Pinto Art is stunning. Those artsy and not-so-artsy people who just want to relax and unwind must visit this place. You’ll probably need at least 3 hours to explore and appreciate the estate and all of its artworks. We didn’t feel bored during our stay here in Pinto Art. This is a perfect place to go when you’re already tired going to malls and crowded places.

I think it’s about time to appreciate artworks and other art pieces that made by our fellow kababayans (filipinos). The place is vast and really dares you to explore it. There are not a lot of museums that are like Pinto Art, so I suggest you pay this place a visit. Whether you’re an art enthusiast or not, I’m sure you’ll have a great time here. It’s definitely a new experience that will not disappoint many people.

One Fun-Filled Day at Hong Kong Disneyland

Posted on Updated on


Hong Kong Disneyland has been a dream destination of mine, although it isn’t my first time to go there. But even if I’m no Disneyland newbie, I was still excited as ever! I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of Disneyland no matter how old I am. Since my niece will be turning 18th that time, we’ve decided to take a travel to Hong Kong. We travelled with Cebu Pacific from Clark airport to Hong Kong. For 5 days, we tried to cover so many interesting sights and tourist spots of Hong Kong as possible. But Disneyland was one of my favorite places in Hong Kong. If you haven’t been here, read on as I try my best to take you with me to the happiest place on Earth and if you’ve been here, then come and relive your experience with me!

The three of us in Clark International Airport.

We waited for about 3 hours before our flight. Hong Kong here we go!


Touchdown Hong Kong!

As I’ve mentioned, my sister and I have been to Hong Kong Disneyland four years ago and I just can imagine how much it has changed. I’m most excited about visiting its two latest additions to the theme park, namely Grizzly Gulch (picture above) and Toy Story Land (picture below).

Of course a picture with some Disney princesses and characters should never be forgotten.11304042_10205503738330621_612195721_n11422704_10205503738890635_1683171109_n11355618_10205503738650629_725223478_n

They’re all so lovely!


We love this garden view beside the castle.







There are a lot of souvenir shops like this along Main Street USA


The night is still young and so we roam around again at the park.


The whole Main Street USA looks like this at night. Isn’t it lovely?

Come at 8:30 pm, it was time for the much awaited parade   It lasted a good 20 minutes or so.

The Disneyland castle at night. I definitely assure you that you won’t get bored.


After one fun-filled day at Hong Kong Disneyland, all good things must come to an end. There really is no place like Disneyland. If you haven’t visited the park, I really recommend you do! Hong Kong is just 2 hours flight from Manila and I promise you that you won’t regret it. I really treasure the memories I made in that place and in all the other Disneyland I’ve visited. It really is the most magical place in the world. No other place can make you feel happy and carefree! Young and old, Disneyland is a place where magic happens. It really is the happiest place on earth!
