For those who are not aware, it's summer time here in the Philippines. There are so many articles to read on what else you can do during summer such as learning a new skill (check), yoga for inner peace (check), go to the beach (check), travel (check), visit Museum (and... check!) I lost the link of the article I read it on Yahoo. Unfortunately Casa Manila Museum was closed. So we continued to walk around the area and across to The Silahis Center. 

Silahis Arts and Artifacts was established in 1966 and incorporated the following year. Since then, we have been engaged in designing, producing, wholesaling, retailing and exporting the finest of handmade Philippine products.
Our main showroom is The Silahis Center located in Intramuros, Manila. In a museum atmosphere with four departments, traditional artifacts and cultural crafts are synthesized with contemporary crafts and accessories expressing our eclectic Philippine lifestyle. Read more.

Whoa! Such a great place to check native Philippine arts, artifacts and Filipino native stuff inside. Their floor is shiny and I like the wooden stairs reminds me of our Ancestral house in Leyte. While I was taking my steps going down and admiring it, I slipped off and went straight to the ground! Good thing, there were only few people there and I just laughed and said "starwax ah!" 

We went up stairs to check the gallery.

My date for the day, my Mom! :)

 Excuse my tired face.

Hot weather.

So I was trying out this old electric fan if its still working. 


I was trying to have a fierce look like the woman in the paintings behind me. Chos!

Spell FAT.

This is my favorite! I think I've seen this somewhere like in my tumblr dashboard. I'm not sure.

Mom's turn for photo opts.

This is a special post on my blog so far. Whenever I'm in Manila, I have to make sure that I have time to visit and meet my Mom to go out for a date. She is living in Manila while I and my siblings are happy based in Cebu City. Though she was in Cebu months ago, we're looking forward to live with us soon if she wants to. Too many to mention, this is not enough to show the world that I have a best Mom because all Mothers out there are the best and unique with their own ways.

Mothers Day is on May 11, just one day to celebrate, but for me it's everyday! Lucky for those who are living with their parents, cheers for the independents out there! :) Leaving you a photo of us. 

Hope you like this post! 

What are your plans this coming Mother's Day? 

Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers and to your Mother! 

Love lots!
