AGUINALDO SHRINE PHOTO DIARY


 For our 10th month last May 6th, my fun-loving boyfriend finally had the idea of visiting a museum. I`ve been bugging him for quite a while now about visiting museums and to be honest, I found it really cute that this was his plan, as opposed to just hanging out at his place.

Our day started by taking a mini bus or a really huge jeep — or a “jeebus” in my terms — to Kawit, Cavite where the Aguinaldo Shrine is located. The cool breeze from the open windows felt really refreshing as I was used to the polluted atmosphere of the metropolitan. He had to run errands though first which was just a couple of blocks away from the shrine, so we had to walk under the sun for a good 15-20 minutes. No fuss though, I love walking and it`s best enjoyed when shared.

Upon arrival at the shrine, I wasn`t expecting it to be deserted. I`ve already been there twice, if I recall correctly, for educational trips in school. Obviously, I was with a lot of people before but then, being alone with your main man in a museum was a new experience. No teacher restricted us to explore, so I really took the chance to look into the exhibit better.
Lo and behold, a hidden medicine cabinet I didn`t know until he told me it exists!
"Look! Old aged Toms.."
The Philippine map

"The Aguinaldo Shrine is the national shrine located in Kawit, Cavite in the Republic of the Philippines, where the independence of the Philippines from Spain was declared on June 12, 1898. To commemorate the event, now known as Araw ng Kalayaan or Independence Day, a national holiday, the Philippine flag is raised here by top government officials on June 12th each year. The house is now a museum.
The shrine is the ancestral home of General Emilio Aguinaldo, the first president of the First Republic of the Philippines."

Our day was great, if you ask me. I`m looking forward to more dates like these.

Have you been to any museums lately? Let me know!! ☺
