Explore MyPhilippines: Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City

 Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City Bag of Beans is one of the must visit places in Tagaytay City. I am witness to how Bag of Beans has grown from a small coffee shop to an established dining place that it is now today.  Bag of Beans has also opened several branches along the Tagaytay City tourist stretch with six branches as of this writing. Bag of Beans caters as events venue and is one of the preferred wedding venues in Tagaytay City. Bag of Beans is also now into Bed and Breakfast accommodation. For this particular visit, me and my Family came for lunch. The food is really nice! Of course coffee and dessert after lunch is a must!  It was definitely worth the travel!

Explore MyPHILIPPINES! Road Trip: Antipolo, Rizal Since it is a long weekend, we decided to go on a road trip to Antipolo, Rizal.  We have never been on a road trip to this part of Rizal, so when we were planning for a road trip over the weekend,  I took the opportunity to check on what places can interest us.  I saw several places of interest from bloggers and what caught our attention are the following destinations.  This is a good mix of different points of interest. Casa Santa at Jardin de Miramar Casa Santa at Jardin de Miramar is a museum of private owned Santa Clause collection, ranging from small figurines to life-size Santa Clause.  Visitors are free to inspect each item for a closer look and even play with them.  This place will surely give you joy and bring back memories of Christmas.l Casa Santa at Jardin de Miramar - San Isidro, Antipolo City, Rizal 276 San Jose Ext., San Isidro Antipolo City Contact Numbers: (02) 576-4358 or (0917) 576.4358  eMail: info

Explore MyPHILIPPINES! 1 st Destination: Casa Santa at Jardin de Miramar First stop, Casa Santa at Jardin de Miramar . Jardin de Miramar is a three-hectare property which is subdivided into different themed areas. This place is usually used to host parties, wedding receptions and other functions. Our main objective here is to view Casa Santa. Please note that there is an entrance fee to be collected for you to view the Santa Clause museum. After paying the entrance fee, we went to view the Santa Clause collections. The Casa Santa houses over 3,000 Santa Clause collections in different sizes and shapes. These Santas are personal collection of the owner of Jardin de Miramar. We also went around and checked the different areas of Jardin de Miramar. I will be sharing pictures of several items from the Santa Clause collection and also show some parts of the Jardin de Miramar in a few.

Explore MyPHILIPPINES: Pinto Art Museum

Explore MyPHILIPPINES! 2 nd Destination: Pinto Art Museum 'Pinto' is a Tagalog or Filipino word for 'Door'. Enter and you will be richly rewarded! The next destination was Pinto Art Museum. Pinto Art Museum is a contemporary art space in Antipolo City. This place is host to different art works. The Pinto Art Museum has also hosted several major art exhibits and shows.   This is a big surprise for me and my family. We did not expect this very rich exhibit of art works.  The exhibits are amazing! You should see for yourself to enjoy the experience firsthand.   Here are some pictures of the art works on display. The art works in Pinto Art Museum are mixtures of different medium, form and substance.  These are very very interesting art pieces. I personally like the modern sculptures by Daniel de la Cruz.  I have labelled here most of his art works. I have also included a section about him which I got from the internet.  The article was an interview
