A DAY AT THE NATIONAL MUSEUM

Monday, March 30, 2015



Finally, summer vacation has just started. And I just can't hide how ecstatic I am. Why? Because I have a bucket list of what I want to do this summer and learning how to swim is one thing on my list. I know, I know, it's kinda embarrassing to say that an 18-year old girl who's hungry to experience many adventures in life and thirsty to go places, especially those that have saltwater in it, sucks at swimming, no, no, it should be--she don't know how to swim. Everytime we go swimming, everyone teaches me how to, but I'm just too dumb to learn, lol. Okay now, enough of my ignominious swimming skills. Last Thursday, me and my good friend, Arieh went to the National Museum of the Philippines for a quick shoot! Hooray, because we've been planning about this for centuries now! So glad that it finally happened. We only had our shoot for less than 2 hours because I still have my final exam that day, good thing the National Museum is just a 12-minute walk away from my school (Adamson University).

Don't you notice that I've been dressing up lazy lately? That's why now, I opt to wear this dress. This dress is so simple. No-frills. Trouble-free. But what it makes me fall in love with it is its holes on the waist part and also the leather on the lower part. Looking at it now makes me want to go on a search for more leather pieces. Definitely love how edgy it is! I decided to pair it with a 3-layered necklace to fill in the plain part of my dress. The necklace and the bag are gifts from my friends during my debut celebration last March 7 (watch out for my blog post about that) so I just wanna say thank you to them!

Visiting the National Museum quenched my thirst of seeing impressive arts from exemplary Filipino artists. The museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays, 10 am until 5 pm. Admission is Php 50 for students, Php 120 for senior citizens and Php 150 for adults! I advise you to go there on Sundays because admission is free, yaaay!
