Remembering why I started dancing.

I was once told by a teacher of mine that I had the worst body type of ballet. It was really hard for me to overcome, and I still get insecure thinking about how my body looks. I really loved to dance and I still really do. I still remember my first corps work with the company, I still remember being scolded by the Russian teacher, I remember the whole corps de ballet having to repeat the whole segment just because of me. These are the things I love to look back to every time I think about dancing and how far I have come and the lifelong friends that I have made. I still have a lot more growing, reading and learning to do and as much as a lot of my friends are telling me to move on, I just can’t seem to let go of my love for dance. 

 My only wish for everyone who loves ballet and dancing as much as I do is to never stop. I know sometimes you’ll see a bad video of yourself or a picture with ugly lines or a girl with better lines and turns but as long as you still can even if its not ballet, work hard at it and read about it! Its not enough to just dance, know its history and its art and you’ll learn to love it even more.

I honestly think that this is what parents should be spending on for their kids to be doing. Instead of them staring blankly into their I Pads and Computer screens. I noticed so many kids coming by as we were painting our ceramics, and their parents just ignored them when they explained to them that they wanted to try doing it.  I really felt so bad for their kids.

Tons of ceramics to choose from. The plates run out fast so a lot were out of stock. Also mugs.

I’ve tried this before when I was a little kid and in fact I still have my old plate that I made from around 12 years ago probably. It was so much fun to come here together with my mom and my sister. I would recommend that you try coming here its quite an experience. We spent about an hour or two here at the studio. You get to pick from different sorts of ceramics and they give you a color chart to choose from as well.

Budget per person: About 1000 pesos, it really depends on what you’re painting but I would recommend that you prepare this much.

This is located inside Hobbes and Landes along Bonifacio Highstreet the only other branch that still does this is the branch at Greenbelt 5. So while you still can do this. I suggest that you come here and try it out! Enjoy ❤

Pinto Art Museum, Antipolo

I had been wanting to go here since three months ago but I didn’t have the time until yesterday because It was a holiday. Even if you are not an art enthusiast you would love to visit the place. Unfortunately it was raining hard yesterday so we were not able to see the whole vicinity.

My favorite artwork is that man on the swing! Looks amazing in person

I would love to just give you a preview of the place and its artworks. It is a great place for you to come with your family and or your friends for a very quick trip out of Manila. It is only about 30 mins away from Katipunan and a beautiful place to spend your day in. I love that there are small and different kinds of artworks around each corner of the place. I was expecting the place to be a bit bigger however I was not disappointed with the place.

We got a bit lost coming here because of the rotunda and the lack of signs. Just make sure that you turn right on the next street after Marville park. Entrance fee is Php 150 and for students if you bring your ID it is Php 75. Enjoy your day and get lost in this beautiful museum. I would recommend coming here on a Sunny day.
