After enjoying Star trek sa Imax a couple weeks ago, parang naadik ako sa superwide screen. And since a new Imax movie was playing, i was excited to go. Si Gbo naman has been wanting to go visit the National museum for the longest time. He just read na libre pala ang entrance dito pag Sunday. Perfect! Day and Night at the Museum.
I think the last time i was inside the national museum sa Dept of Finance Building kami pumasok at high school pa ako noon. So the displays then were younger by uhm…10 years… sige… 15. Oo na 20 year!!! Paksyet sige 25 years ago na! Huling tawad!
The official national Museum Building is the old Senate Building na pala. We got there at around 1pm and the first room we visited was the Gallery featuring the works of Luna and Hidalgo. It was the first time that i’ve seen the Spolarium in real life. It moved me… to go closer. Andilim kasi. Anlakilaki niya pero andilim niya. Parang andaming black paint ni Juan Luna and he decided to use them all. Charos.
There were galleries of the work of National Artists as well are representations of more contemporary artists. Parang Museum of Philippine Art yata itong pinasok namin… pero bakit may isang gallery na puno ng animal skeletons? What, artform na rin ang kalansay?
Going to the museum is supposed to broaden one’s horizon. Ako nagutom lang.
And what we were craving for, after an afternoon of browsign thru old and dead things was… mami. With siopao on the side. Saka extra order ng siomai. Ewan ko kung bakit. Basta.
And guess what… natunton ko pa ang old Masuki restaurant in Binondo maski minsan lang ako nadala dun. Ang nagagawa nga naman ng gutom de ba?
After eating, ikot-ikot muna kami… bronse thru the hopia colelction gn eng bee tin, silip sa loob ng Binondo Church, pictorial sa fountain in the plaza, pasok ng starbucks para makijerbs… the usual thing, you know.
Then we proceeded na to MoA para sa second half ng day namin and see Night at the Museum sa Imax. I wont bother to review the movie dahil, hello, i review ba si Ben Stiller? Basta natawa ako, naenjoy ko ang Imax, at nakakuha kami ng 10% discount sa BoNa Coffee.
Bona Coffee? Ang kape ng mga Superstar? Of course we just have to try it. And knowing me, alam niyo na siguro kung ano ang naisip ko kung paano isini-serve ang hot coffee dito…
Ate Guy, asan na ang kapeh koh? Hmp!!
