Bahay Tsinoy in Intramuros

I’ve been wanting to take the kids to Bahay Tsinoy in Intramuros eversince I’ve come across it on my news feed. We weren’t able to when we first toured Intramuros because it was closed on Mondays. Bahay Tsinoy can be found along Anda street in Intramuros. In some ways, it’s a lot like the Lights & Sounds Museum where there were life-sized figures that depicted our history, but this one is specifically dedicated to reminding us of how far back and how tight our affiliation go with our Chinese friends.

The Bible Museum in Manila

It’s National Bible Month! I didn’t really know we had this ”holiday” here in the Philippines, but it says so in a poster I saw on the The Filipino Homeschooler, along with the invitation to visit The Bible Museum during the month of January. The Bible Museum is located along United Nations Avenue in Manila, right across the National Police District. If you’re wondering if it’s near the Philippine Bible Society building, that’s exactly it. What to see at the Bible Museum The Bible Museum is a neat, but very small museum. Once you enter, you will be greeted by […]
