29th AUGUST 2017 ~ We just walked around the place observing and making our own conclusion of how life was if we were rich. When we arrived at the kitchen section, suddenly appeared someone who was very friendly and provided us with important information of the exhibits displayed here. He was definitely the only staff here who smiled and made us feel welcomed, may God bless his kind soul.

We were the only visitors at that time so we had to place all to ourselves. We were glad we stopped by and we actually spent quite some time here exploring every nook and corner.

I should have taken architecture when I was in college. But then, I did not do well in Maths when I was in school last time. :)

CASA MANILA MUSEUM - THE HOUSE DURING THE COLONIAL PERIOD [PART 1]


29th AUGUST 2017 ~ We came across this place by accident and decided to have a look inside without any hesitation. This house was built by Imelda Marcos to showcase the lifestyle of the rich (and famous) during the era of Spanish colonization.


























































Everything looked antique here - the building, the furniture and the decorations. However, it was well kept and presentable, except most of the staff were not friendly and informative. They were there perhaps just to make sure people did not touch or steal any item or take photo of certain pictures on the wall.
