Since I'm residing near BGC, why not pay a visit to one of the newest attractions in BGC, the fort. If you are a science buff, this is good for you! It's really a MUST see place. Where you will discover more more science related things. Everything is interesting.
When was the last time you visited a museum? Mine was when our school had a field-trip. It was the time when I got so amazed to the exhibits I saw. It was my first time! *no joke*
Seriously, this place is so COOL!! Outside palang, interesting na. I'm not a museum-kid because I'm getting bored when I go to museums. haha! sorry I'm weird :)) But when I found out that MIND MUSEUM exist, WOOOAAAHH!!
THIS IS MY FAVORITE SPOT!!! I saw this on movies and I wanna try it! :)
