  • For only P70.00 (quite expensive) you can a.) Get the feel living inside a hundred year old house. b.) Count each steps of the stairs as you chant, "oro, plata, mata." c.) See old personal effects we don't use anymore. Just stroll, examine the exibits, relax in their veranda, just take note that picture taking is not allowed. Ouch!
  • Awesome preservation of Philippines history fragment.. :)
