Revisiting Pinto Art Museum

The mandatory pose at the entrance of the museum

It was known as Pinto Art Gallery before and now it is called Pinto Art Museum. After 6 years, I had the chance to visit this place again.

The place is very different from what I remember. The old entrance door has been permanently closed and a new entrance door had been used. Everyone who enters the place is now required to register and pay Php 180 for regular guests while Php 150 for students. There are a lot of new beautiful structures that houses a lot of great artworks. I am particularly amazed at the huge gallery 1. They followed the terrain of the land and did not remove the rocks that were found on it. What they did is use the rocks as landscape design of the gallery which I think is really cool.

Here are some of the photos I took today. Enjoy! 🙂

Rediscovering OPM

Synthesis

I can no longer remember the last time I purchased an audio CD. It has been too long that I lost track. I vividly remember how I make sure to hang out in the music stores when I was still in college in between our classes and how much CDs I used to have way back and are now dusting somewhere in our house.

To make the long story short, three days ago I purchased Synthesis, an independently produced album here in the Philippines. I got curious and decided to give it a try.

Well, I was not disappointed. It is a pretty solid album. I was surprised at the artist’s musicality and I love all the tracks. But my personal favorites are Sayo Pa Rin and Barcelona. The music is catchy and the lyrics are well written. I was hoping there were more tracks though.

Kudos to Glaiza and her team! If you are into Indie Pop, please do grab a copy of this album. It is worth the money plus you get to support and encourage independent producers and composers to create more music.
