Manila Is Where You Want to Be This WeekendShopping? Check. Mini-perya? Check. Family bonding? Check!by SmartParenting Staff .
There are two reasons why you may just find us spending this weekend in Manila.
First, the National Museum has extended its free entrance for the whole month of June. If you haven’t been there for some time, there’s no perfect holiday than Independence Day to go visit the musuem. There will be two important exhibitions this month: "The Manlilikha ng Bayan" (National Living Treasures) and "Remembering Joya," which commemorates the late National Artist Jose Joya's 85th birth anniversary.
Our second reason: a chance to shop at a relaxed and leisurely pace at the The Travelling Trunk: Filipino Collection where you will find some of the best homegrown lifestyle brands. Some of our favorites:
C and C Home, whose woven baskets, trays and hampers feature original designs.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
La Pomme, whose Decorate-A-Plush kits are always a hit among children in any party or gathering.
Pottly N Tubby, whose line of teepees, bean bags and other soft furnishings are sure to brighten up any space.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
