It was one sunny fine day when me and my friends decided to visit a museum. It’s not a historical museum though but a trick art museum. I personally enjoy art but I am not knowledgeable enough with the different artists. We enjoyed taking pictures in the museum. There were like 40 paintings and we took pictures with everything. It was fun and interesting. The paintings were painted in 3D so it looked like we were part of the paintings itself.
Here are the pictures we had.
We had plenty of pictures but I will just have to post only some. I love to go to museums and any museums would be interesting for me. Would you pay this museum a visit?
It is located in Jcenter mall, Mandaue City Cebu. It cost around 400 per person including the 4D ride which is not in the picture. I don’t know really but the 4D ride was not my piece of cake.
It was March of this year when my aunt who’s been living in the states, came back home. After 18 years, she’s finally back home, but only just for 3 weeks. And because it was a once in a lifetime opportunity, we did many things for her homecoming, and one of it, was going back to Leyte, our HOMETOWN.
It was actually 3 months after the biggest typhoon hit the island so we were scared whether it would be possible for us to go there by ship. But luckily, we were able to travel and we arrived safely to the island. It was nostalgic. I was satisfied. The ruins of the typhoon surprised us: roofless houses, damaged roads, but business was back to usual. My hometown was not severely affected by the typhoon but the electricity supply was still cut. We stayed in the island powerless for a week. But we still enjoyed it. 🙂
It was also a reunion party for us and especially for my mother, aunts and grandparents. They have not been together for 18 years. I was very happy when I saw them reunited.
We stayed in the island for a week. We didn’t have electricity and we need to fetch water from the opposite area. But we were able to have fun though the nights were sleepless.
And for a week, I enjoyed the sunrise and sunset right before my eyes.
One of the best thing during the vacation was our visit to the beach. It’s an isolated place but pristine. And below is a picture of the road towards the beach. It’s kind of creepy.
We enjoyed the 1 week stay in the island, with no electricity, choppy phone signals and far fetched water supply. We were reunited with our relatives and I met my mother’s relatives as well. It feels good knowing you have many blood relatives.
Me, my mother and my baby sister went home earlier than the schedule because the baby got sick. The vacation didn’t end that good though but it was worthy. 🙂
Have you ever heard of the name “the Dancing Inmates”? They are the renowned dancers from Cebu City,Philippines. They became famous since they’ve uploaded a video on youtube where they were dancing to the music of Michael Jackson’s thriller. It became a hit and since then, their performances are being watched by people from all over the world. They became a world sensation. And until now, they continue dancing and people still keep watching and enjoying their performances.
From the time we heard about these dancers, we really wanted to see them personally. These dancing inmates dance in CPDRC (Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center). They are scheduled to perform every last Saturday of the month. It is free to watch their performance but it is not that easy to go to CPDRC. Since it is on the top of the mountain, transportation is a hassle so the government of Cebu offers free bus ride from the Cebu Capitol going to CPDRC. But you have to call for a reservation. The performance starts in the afternoon which is very hot so you’d better bring shades and fans. It would last for about an hour. And it would surely be very fun to watch.
Me and my friends sat very close to the dancers so we could see their faces clearly. And we were quite surprised that most of them were at their 20’s. Then I wondered, “What could have they done wrong?” But I paused and thought, “I better quit thinking and just enjoy the show.”
Here’s my pictures of the performance:
At the end, we danced with them and they were very cool showing us some dance steps we could follow.
The performance ended with a blast. They danced Michael Jackson’s song “They don’t care about us”. It is a very powerful and meaningful song which is about criticism and racism. I can really say, ‘Hats off’ to these guys who changed my views on prisoners. Even if they are behind bars, they deserve second chances but it also depends on them, showing they deserve those second chances.
If you wish to watch the performance, book ahead and you may call these numbers:
(0063 International access) (032 local area code) 2539613/2541882
And they will publish their schedule on Freeman newspaper once they will have upcoming performances.
We would always want to have fun and enjoy life. Me and my friends would always want to hang out and try something new. So when one Saturday came, we decided to go biking, run a marathon and go swimming. It was like a triathlon event but the difference was, we did it with friends and it was purely for fun.
We rented some bikes and started biking until we met the end of our route where we went swimming. It was very exhausting yet it was a time we enjoyed wasting.
It was a very fun time spent with friends. It would be more fun doing it again another time.
