I’ve been wanting to see Pinto Art Museum since last year, also given that it is just in Antipolo. And at last, with lots of spontaneity, I saw it with my new girlfriends.
The place itself is already a piece of art and it is seriously huge. Don’t worry they provide maps in the entrance. There are numerous galleries to discover, sofas and beds around and even a pool. The place is landscaped close to the nature with ponds, bridges, and stairs. So I advise not to wear heels and it actually will take a minimum of 3 hours to be able to roam the whole place. It’s best around 3.30pm to 6 pm for it is not hot and the lighting is just perfect.
And guess what people? There’s free ice cream, taho, iced tea and turon when you got tired of walking.
The art they offer comes in all different forms. I’m not really an art person but I got to appreciate all the artists and the stories behind their masterpieces. How much more if you’re a pure blooded art person? You’ll die of happiness here. And there are pieces for sale here too.
This one is a bothering art. It makes me sad contrary to my smiling face. It’s the UST Main building with hundreds of rats and to come think of it that the artist is a Thomasian graduate. It is not written what’s the reason for his hatred to my alma mater but whatever it is I’m still a proud Thomasian. UST made me experience more of life and mold me into a much stronger and better person. He might be standing in a different opinion. And I respect him.
One reason that I really wanted to see this place is the Santorini feels I find in their galleries. Every place that is Santorini-inspired is an automatic wanderlust trigger on my body.
The place is still a beaut at sunset. It’s not even scary at all. We already left around 6.30pm tho it closes at 6 pm.
And of course, this gorgeous place is a good place to do crazy and artsy poses with friends. Instant #igersmanila but I really think more of #igerstaytay since our boyfriends are from Taytay haha a horrible joke I’m sorry. Our boyfriends are village friends since they are in diapers (14 years to be exact kasi they’re so proud of that). Since I’m the newest member they never let me feel like I was one. These girls are as beautiful as the place and very strong too. As an engineering student, I really don’t have lots of girl friends so I’m thanking God for giving me this girl group who share the same personality, kaingayan and kajologans with me.
We are like art, we can be pretty to others or weird or simple or an abstract but what really matters more is our story and our worth.
To more places that I’ll walk to.
