Memphis Memories (Part IV) - Elvis is Alive!

...continuation

So here is Elvis' living room. It's the first thing you'll notice when you get inside the mansion. Why? Most probably because of the colorful glass designs.


To learn about the history of the room... we had to click #31


It was said that the family spent most of their mornings here, waiting for their mom to ready up their breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, off we go to the kitchen and dining area.

If you look closer, you'll see that most of the appliances and utensils are old ones. Most of them were actually used by the family. Here's the dining area.

Priscilla and Lisa Marie





Off we go to the second floor and the first thing you'll see is the bedroom of the parents of Elvis.


Those clothes/dresses belong to Elvis' mother. :)

Next stop.. is the bar/entertainment room. Of course every rock n' roll superstar should have one. It's sooo yellow!


Mama and Papa listening
What I love about this room is that the ceiling is made of mirrors!


We were told to transfer rooms again.. it was just across the bar/entertainment room. We ended up in the pool-table room. And what amazed me about this room is that the whole room was draped with cloth. Ceilings and walls included.

 
Grabe.. draped everything! Who else can pull that off????

To be continued...

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!


The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.


It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

The Bontoc Museum

I've been going home to Bontoc, Mountain Province for years already and most of the time we go there during Holy Week. I've always wanted to visit the Bontoc Museum but I end up not visiting it again and again because they're closed during Holy Week. So imagine my amazement and (hidden) excitement when I FINALLY got the chance to visit it. Arvic was with me too so it made it extra fun of course. Another first for both of us. :) Yay!

Welcome to....




The Bontoc Musuem!









Entrance fee costs P50.00 only. The musuem has two parts.. the inside musuem and the outside one. Picture taking in the 'inside museum' is not allowed. There you'll be taken back in time with glimpses of the early days of the tribes from Sagada, Ifugao and Bontoc. :) Yes.. there are even pictures of the headhunting days. There are lots of photos of the tribes before and after the colonization. Really interesting. :)



So off we go to the outside musuem. Here, there are actual Nipa huts wherein you can see…
