There were many scary stories about it since we were in college because it really looked scary back then with the paints peeling and no people in sight. But right now, it's no longer that way with fresh paint and some people being seen within the vicinity.
My friend and I were given an opportunity to have a look at it when a Bamboo Exhibit (more on this on the next post) was displayed in the house. The house is quite old and the guard told us that the current owner is Lucio Tan.
This is the frontage:
We went to the dining room and this is how it looks like-- very vintage:
I posed on the steps going to the 2nd floor:
Don't be afraid, if you see a lady's head behind me. It's one of the girls who visited with us at the white house..heheheh!
This is Minel posing on the very narrow steps leading to the third floor. It was so narrow I couldn't imagine how they will bring furniture upstairs.
I don't know if the portrait of a scared guy screaming was meant to be a joke but the guard and one of the caretakers were making "awwwoooooo" sounds while we were going up. Cheeky.
The picture below shows the attic/3rd floor... it was a very small room and the balconies are narrow, too.
So, that's the tour. Actually, we paid 50 pesos to see the bamboo exhibit but we really initially paid to see the house. And I guess, our curiosity was satisfied. :)
