My photo diary from the Philippines trip continues... It's taking weeks and weeks to post all photos but we will get there. next stop: Vigan City in Ilocos Sur.
The >100 year old houses remained intact because this city was spared by the Japanese soldiers during WWII.

it's my grandma's birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAMA!
I love the doors here at Calle Crisologo. I can take lots of OOTD photos here. They will all look *make me look good.. haha.
we toured The Syquia Mansion just a few blocks off of Calle Crisologo. So much history!
The girls room is next to the master. There is a receiving room at the second floor. If deemed appropriate to enter further, then the guests will be summoned to enter the formal living room.
Bahay na Bato -- means house of stone. It can have a bad connotation. Because families who can afford house of stones are wealthy and sometimes mata pobre (snobs).
Fascinating too, but the boys room is closest to the library. ahem.... girls not being allowed to read or not educated. So ancient times, right?
The photos from the mansion will be for another post (if I ever make it to post them!)

near the boys room (is that good idea???)
It was not as busy at Calle Crisologo because it was around 2pm when we were walking around. It was still hot.
