I am going to visit Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar before the year ends. Mark my words. :)
I am going to walk in the cobble stoned streets, take a dip in the batis, listen to Kundiman, sleep in a four poster bed, take a lot of ceiling shots (because murals look soooo much better when they are up on the ceiling) and will try my hardest to recall my elementary history lessons .
I have always been fascinated by old things and old houses. My favorite channel right now is the History Channel (which costs an additional fee because it is not covered by our basic cable plan) and I religiously try to watch episodes of The Pickers and Pawn Stars. I am intrigued with the idea that each item that they encounter has a story to tell and it always came from someone, somewhere, else.
So imagine a resort, a town even, where everything and everywhere you look came from somewhere else and was owned by someone else? Imagine all the stories they will tell. And the chismosa in me will definitely listen very well to what they all have to say. Even though hubby and I are on a "no fly" budget this year, it does not mean we will not get to experience a unique vacation all together. :)
So I will surely stock up on silly mustache packs from Andings to ensure that we look like respected hacienderos. I will pack up a dress or skirt that falls to my ankles for maximum effect while walking at the Plaza (maybe even wear a straw hat while I'm at it). I will brush up on my matapobre lines so I will be ready to address the indios and aliping saguiguilid because living in opulent old houses just puts you in the right mood to role play as the aristocratic senyorita hahaha.
Who wants to go with me on a road trip to history?
