I’ve been dying to visit this place for ages but I just really don’t have time to do so. Until one of my food/travel buddy texted me at eight in the morning on a Saturday… asking me if I can join her to visit the place… just exactly what I’ve been waiting for the whole time. Hahaha! ♥
So we met at Cubao at around 3pm and we were so worried that we won’t have much time exploring the place as it is only open until 6PM, but good thing that our ride didn’t take much long…ooops wait! actually it did! hahaha. The FX ride from Cubao to Antipolo was longer than what we have expected, but still, we’ve got enough time (about over an hour) to explore the place .
So we paid the entrance fee, and since I’m currently taking up my MBA and I happened to have my ID that day, I was able to avail the 100pesos entrance fee for student! Yay!
If you’ve been to BenCab Museum in Baguio, the feel is quite the same but this place for me is much better, brighter, and bigger. You’ll understand once you’ve seen both places. Hehe.
The overall ambiance has a touch of “Santorini“, which makes the surrounding just looks so peaceful and inviting! There are lots of chairs and couches spread throughout the area where you can rest and just relax and enjoy the beauty of the place 🙂
One of the advantage of Pinto Art Museum is that the place is sooo big that you can enjoy each of the paintings without having to worry about blocking the view from other people. There were even times that we got to enjoy one viewing room for ourselves. And since the place is big enough and have lots of viewing rooms to offer, you have the option to avoid crowded rooms during peak time.
And so here are some of the arts you’ll came across when exploring PAM.
I really regretted that I didn’t wear dress or skirt when we went here because this place is really the best place to take lots of OOTDs **hahaha!**,
but since the invitation somewhat surprised me – I forgot about it and only realized my mistake when I was on my way already. Huhuhu **so sad**
With yours truly *char!* hahaha!
And if you’re going to ask me what’s my favorite room @ PAM, it would definitely be this green room that we almost miss! Good thing that our curiosity won and we entered the room that was mostly ignored by visitors.
Make sure to watch out for this as you might miss this “quiet green room” while exploring the area. Sorry that I forgot on what part of the area is this, but if you can’t find it, just ask the bantays that are roaming around on where is the quiet room with the bamboo organs. I’m pretty sure that they’ll be happy to accompany you to that room 🙂
Although the idea is definitely amazing and one of a kind… the place really scared me at first as it is too dark for my taste. Hahaha.
Once you got in, I’m daring you to look up so you can understand what i felt!
After exploring all the rooms with exhibits, me and my friend just explored and enjoy the garden and the entire serenity of the place.
PAM is definitely a nice place to just chill out ♥
And here’s a super easy way on how to go to Pinto Art Museum:
After spending our afternoon at PAM, we left the place at past 6pm and we decided to head straight to Cloud 9 Restaurant, which is just one of the many overlooking restaurants in Antipolo. The place is really nice and affordable, plus they have really generous servings too!
I suggest to come here before 5pm, as this place is really an awesome spot to watch the sunset… not to mention that it would be a bit hard to get a table besides the railings, where you can sit and have the best view of Antipolo – especially at night 🙂
That Saturday was definitely well spent and I wouldn’t mind coming back to that place… and I’ll make sure to wear the prettiest dress I have when I get back! Hahaha!
I swear! this kid talk more in Facebook than in person. LOL
So I was busy looking for a cheap and family oriented beach resort in Bataan and a friend of mine suggested to try to look somewhere in Morong, as they have a lot of resorts on the area plus the beach are quite nice too.
And since I came up with a few… why not share it here too 🙂
Book your reservations now!
Here’s his post earlier in Facebook
I didn’t expect it from him so I am sharing his post in Facebook earlier. My youngest brother will be graduating this Saturday (April 30th) and we’re just so excited and overwhelm not only because we will have a new engineer in the family, but also because he’s the youngest of the three of us. And now, our father who’s been working as an OFW for the last 16 years can finally retire.
Growing up without having a father at home is just plain difficult. Although our mother has been a great mother&father figure at home, it’s just sad because our father wasn’t able to join us in a lot of special moments in our life; like birthdays, school recognitions, Christmas & New Year, and even graduation.
Life has been really hard growing up, but thanks to God that He gave us such an amazing parents that really did a good job in raising the three of us.
In two days time, our youngest brother will not just be “bunso” anymore…
but Engr. Jul Jon General.
Kudos to you brother!
P.S. For the first time, our father will be able to attend a graduation. He arrived last month and was given a 45days leave by his company. On May 6th, we will accompany him again to NAIA Terminal II for the last time… because that will be the last time that he had to leave us for work. When he comes home next year December, it will be for good.
…let me play and enjoy my little self before the world discover my existence.

These are definitely one of the few book series that I can give a rate of 5 stars for both the first book and 2nd book!
They weren’t mistaken when they said that this book will make you smile really hard! I can’t remove that smile with me while reading Jenny Han’s book. She’s definitely one of my favorite author now! Not to mention that this book gave me a lot of good laughs too, especially when little Kitty starts talking! Hahaha!
What’s good about this book is that it just didn’t focus on love, but it also talks about the value of family and friendship – and a little turn about betrayal and trust, love and heartaches, and confrontation and reconciliation. Oh~my! Didn’t you just love Jenny Han?! ♥
Lara Jean and Peter’s cute love story will definitely make you swoon and go gaga!
I would gladly recommend this book to all of you!
Way to go Jenny Han! ♥
