Lately, I’ve been doing research on Philippine art, so it was wonderful to spend a Tuesday afternoon with my dear friend Tiffany at Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo, about an hour outside Manila.
Right away, the details of the museum gave it a quaint Mediterranean and Philippine charm.
Such a cute bell!
I love this spot
I really appreciated the art inside the cavernous halls, as well as the fact that it was wheelchair-accessible.
Lovely and wheelchair-accessible
Oh if only I can live here, and write and make art all day.
Such a lovely windowsill
I’ve been really interested in Philippine textiles lately, so this gallery of indigenous art was one of my favorites.

I love this spot: a meditation garden dedicated to the love of Philippine national hero Jose Rizal and Leonor Rivera.
Squeal! A meditation garden dedicated to the love between Jose Rizal and Leonor Rivera
Inside was an old-fashioned writing cabinet with the instructions to write a letter to The One Who Got Away. The letter should be placed in the cabinet undelivered. Then the person is instructed to move on with his life. I was so tempted to read the letters but I swear I didn’t touch them.
The instructions: Write a letter to the one who got away. Place it in the cabinet undelivered. Move on.
The museum was bigger than I thought. I didn’t have a clue where we were on the museum map.
I feel like I’m back in Barcelona.
Thanks for a lovely time!
