'manila' with a british twang

this isn't exactly travel related. but hey, london + manila, two beautiful destinations, it should merit a mention here, right?

truthfully, this post has nothing to do with the two lovely places. i just wanted to share the video below for the novelty of it. the video is of a british trio who collectively calls themselves 'blake'. these british singers sang live a popular tagalog song entitled 'manila' before thousands of filipinos in london. the song was originally popularized by a 70's (correct?) band called 'hotdogs.'

ain't their accent a darling?

anyway, the video was lifted from the group's official site. or at least the youtube link was from their site.

cebu trick art museum

Today marks the opening of what could become one of the must-see places in Cebu - Cebu Trick Art Museum. One of my frustrations of not living in the capital is the limited venues available in my beloved Cebu as far as museums go. So, i was so glad when I learned that a new museum will be opening in my city. Thus, as soon as tickets became available, I readily purchased a ticket for myself.
I initially planned on going solo but decided against it. Cebu Trick Art Museum is an interactive museum and could best be enjoyed if you go with a friend or in a big grou - definitely not solo. So, I was glad I went there with my two siblings.
