BENCAB MUSEUM Asin Road Baguio City photos

My wife and her mom went to Baguio last December. yeah, I think I already said it ten times. Well, it was originally perceived as a date between mother and daughter but I hopped in to spoil the intimacy.hahaha. I was broken hearted coz I was not invited in an event in Manila which I have been anticipating for months but turned out that I didn't make the cut.If in case you know about this,just keep quiet, I am totally over it now. No more emotional angst. I am just recalling the reason why I suddenly ended up in Baguio despite not having any intentions to be there in the particular date.

The other reason, I HAVE BEEN DYING TO SEE this much talked about Museum along ASIN ROAD they call BENCAB...................
