Sorry for the random title. I bought this plaid button down shirt last year because it reminded me of fruitcake—and Christmas. I was supposed to wear it on Christmas Eve with already a style in mind. I was planning to go preppy and wear it with chino pants and loafers but I still ended up looking grunge, lol. I guess I just have to embrace my personal style!
What I’m wearing: plaid shirt (Topman), pants (Topman), cap (Super), backpack (Herschel Supply Co.), sunnies (SM Accessories), iphone case (Mr. Brussel Sprout), boots (Forever 21 Men). Hype this on lookbook.nu here.

This May, the Philippines opens its doors to the newest fashion destination for European fast fashion—SUITEBLANCO! With over 270 stores in 23 countries, the brand continues to rapidly expand in the Middle East and several regions in Asia. I was able to check out the store during the opening and I must say, the clothes are really nice and affordable! Almost everything’s less than 2,000 pesos! I can’t wait to show you guys the outfits I’ll come up with wearing Suiteblanco! Visit the flagship store located in SM Aura Premier at the Fort!15 notes
My friends and I wanted to do something different one Friday morning. Instead of heading to our usual hang outs, we bought tickets to The Mind Museum at Taguig and fed our minds instead of what we usually feed—our tummies! We knew we were in for an unforgetable museum experience! We got the Science Summer for 6 promo wherein for every five (5) tickets bought, you get 1 additional FREE! We were all set to experience unique hands on, minds on exhibits.
The Mind Museum is a 12,000 sqm of thrilling exploration, which featured over 250 interactive exhibits! We purchased the all-day pass to maximize our stay and to check if true to their branding- science will really come alive.
You will be welcomed by a MindMover, what they call the museum’s resident scientists and a cool robot named Aedi!
The Mind Museum is the first science museum of its scale and scope in the country. I am so happy it is done beautifully and it’s really something to be proud of! Truly world class!
After the MindMover shows you the different areas you can explore, you’re on your own! The idea of the museum is for you to get lost and discover things on your own.
Bad hair day for me. Experienced the electrostatic energy via the hair-raising Van de Graaf Ball!
It’s Gerd and Angel’s turn! The static ball didn’t work on Gerd probably because he had too much hairspray on. Haha!
My friends and I really enjoyed this part of the museum! After a bright flash of light, your shadow gets imprinted on the wall for a couple of seconds! We spent about 10 minutes inside doing a bunch of silly poses!
The Earth Gallery—learn a lot about dinosaur fossils and other fossil types here. You’ll also learn how the power of cosmic collisions and volcanic eruptions ended the dinosaur era with the museum’s Mass Extinction diorama. You can also dig your own fossil, see a volcano erupt and touch a huge dino poop! lol
The Mind Museum is made by Filipinos for Filipinos! The exhibits present science in over 250 interactive exhibits through 5 interconnected galleries: Atom, Earth, Life, Universe and Technology. Here I am checking out the light bridge!
How the light bridge looks from outside! I don’t mind getting lost here! Other corridors include the Avenue of Life, and the Hall of Philippine Science that makes science that much closer to home.
Universe Gallery—In this gallery, an interactive display gives you a close up view of the moon as it changes phases. The life and death of a star is dramatized using multimedia and hanging models. And of course, a space tour isn’t a space tour without a planetarium stop over. Let me show you around!
According to my friend who’s into architecture, almost all the exhibits in The Mind Museum are designed by Filipino artists and fabricators who worked closely with scientists here and abroad to execute science principles of facts clearly and beautifully. Also, I heard the architect of The Mind Museum designed the DLS-CSB School of Design and Arts building (my college) as well!
Knowing Home: Omniglobe—This is one of my favorites in the museum! One of the exhibit’s newest features helps you take a step ahead. With a live feed, you get a visual update on the current state of the planet—from active volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis to a global weather report from a month ago to the past 24 hours. See the world in real time, exactly as it turns.
Dressed for space! You can also steer a Mars rover and time travel through the tunnel craft—sucks I didn’t get to take a photo but my friends and I had so much fun walking through it! The idea is for you to get disoriented. Did that sound fun to you? Haha try it!
The Sounds of Space—sit back, relax and hear the sounds in space! I wanted to take it home and use it as a home theatre! lol
The New Space Shell—The Mind Museum’s custom-built planetarium just got better. Now you can lounge on special couches while watching Cosmic Collisions happen around you. I seriously learned a lot from this! One of my favorites in the museum!
You can change the phases of the moon! Awwwoooo!
If you have questions, don’t hesitate to approach any of The Mind Museum’s resident scientists, they’ll be more than happy to entertain your queries! They love curious inquisitive minds!
The evolution of man! Why hello there!
Mind Moving Studios—The Mind Museum’s resident scientists called MindMovers are available to demonstrate mind-blowing, scientific experiments live at the studio.
Life Gallery—walk through a human brain, connect to the web of life, see a life-sized whale shark and more!
I seriously can’t think what my favorite gallery is. Each and every gallery/exhibit is so unique and interesting!
Walk through a giant brain at the Life Gallery. The exhibit lights up when you coax it to sense, think and feel.
My buddy Seph exploring things on his own!
You’ll never run out of things to do and explore here at The Mind Museum.
I got to bond with my friend’s daughter Syrena too! For every child who’s thirsty for life and science, this is the perfect place to soak up on.
Atom Gallery—take a macro look at that micro thing that makes up everything. Here’s the magnified molecules of a chocolate bar!
I’ve been actually wanting to go to The Mind Museum ever since it was still under construction five years ago. I actually blogged about it back in 2009! The inner geek in me was so happy!
Tired from feeding your mind? Take a break and head to the quirky Mind Cafe by the Technology Gallery!
How cool is their resident robot, Mimo and other things you can do in the museum! You can see through the museum’s night vission glasses, enliven solar bugs and print with a pioneering printing press.
I really love how everything in The Mind Museum is interactive! Here I am smelling different scents!
At the Inner Space Track—Did you know how life started here on Earth? I read from the marker inside the Space Track that it started as a single cell over 3 billion years ago. Meteor showers surrounded our planet at that time and when they fell on Earth, they brought along carbon molecules, one of which is the building blocks of modern DNA. I feel so smart! lol
I want to share everything I saw and experienced at The Mind Museum but I’ll leave it up for you guys to explore! Educating yourself is probably the best gift you could give to yourself. Visit The Mind Museum and feed your mind!
The Mind Museum is open on Tuesdays to Sundays 9am-12nn, 12nn-3pm, 3pm-6pm. On Saturdays, they have an extra slot at 6pm-9pm! (Museum is closed Mondays). Ticket prices at php600 (adults), children and students (php450), public school students (php150), teachers (php150). The Mind Museum is located at JY Campos Park, 3rd Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. For more details you can also visit www.themindmuseum.org.

I am definitely coming back this month and avail the Science Summer for 6 promo! This time with my nieces and nephews! You guys should too! For every 5 tickets bought, you get 1 additional FREE! Promo period is till May 31 only! So many new things to do, learn and love at The Mind Museum with your family and friends! The Mind Museum at Taguig is a MUST see!90 notes
