Summer 2017 – I did not get to go to an actual trip despite my three-month off from school.
Due to reasons unknown (okay, maybe because of my lazy ass), I did not get to travel this summer, just like how my summers were 5 years ago. I decided to go out on a small adventure and, as I have been wanting to visit the National Museum for so long, I picked the place.
June 7th, 2017, I left the house at 12:05PM, it was pretty hot then. I walked to where I rode a jeepney and left by 12:11PM. Mom told me that it takes about a couple of hours to get to the city hall but I arrived at 12:59PM.
[Please excuse the low quality of photos. I used my old phone to take the photos.]
It started to drizzle by the time I got there and it was a hassle. My phone could not pick up signal and it became a problem as I did not know which way the National Museum was from where I got off. Apparently, the guide I was checking lead to Intramuros. It took about 45 minutes before I finally gave up and asked a guard how to get to the museum.
Turns out it was the other way from I was going. I walked a few minutes and around 2:01, I arrived at the museum. I was honestly amused.
Finally, the National Museum.
Whoops, gotta take more sky photos before I go in.
Going inside was exciting. I checked everything out before giving my bag to the counter. Things like this make me uncomfortable. I rely on my bag so much that it’s hard to let anyone touch it.

An unfinished painting by Fernando Amorsolo which I came to like.
The Senate Session Hall was spacious and without a large number of people. My happy place.
I took a few more photos of the art that caught my attention, as advised by my workmate. I wasn’t a fan of taking photos of other people’s art.
I tried to take a photo of this for later reading, but my phone camera was not good enough to create a readable photo.
Before I left, I took a photo of the Spoliarium. I never thought it would turn out to be this big.
It was raining when I went out.
The National Museum outside.
I headed to the mall near my house before 5 and waited for 7:30 as I bought a ticket to watch Resident Evil: Vendetta.
It was a nice and peaceful day. I enjoyed the time alone as much as I did looking at the pieces inside the museum. I will be back to look at the art better the next time.
