A friend of mine coined this idea of “hotel hopping” since his friends from Manila are coming over. The agenda: to spot a cozy crib for them to stay. Wish us luck!
(Note: The first photo is in no way related to what this post is all about. Just saying )
In a nutshell, I reckon we hopped by a bunch of hotels—maybe 7? The picture above was taken at Las Casitas Inn. One thing I adore about the place is its homey ambiance with a touch of traditional Filipino embellishments in every corner. Wish I could have taken more snaps to show you what I mean.
Anyhoo, there was this particular hotel which caught our eyes and I must say tugged my artistic side in an unexpected way! Ponce Suites welcomed its visitors with neck-breaking sculptures guarding the whole estate, eccentric wall art strewn aesthetically to please its beholder, rows and columns of everyday things clumped intricately to form modern art pieces waiting to be deciphered only by keen onlookers and the long list goes on. You’ll feast your eyes on nothing but pure art at its rustic magnificence!
Kublai Ponce-Millan is the father of all these visually stimulating works of art…and life. He never fails to amuse people from all walks of life passing by his captivating nest.
From what I noticed, these look like nymphs of nature tacked onto marble slates.
Textured and Metallic
I don’t have a clue who was he trying to depict here, but I’m quite sure these portraits resemble Jesus. Looking through His eyes expressed the emotion implied in each framed masterpiece.
There’s something eerily interesting about this photo. Is it just me or the symmetrical painting hung stock-still on the wall? Not to mention the deserted hallway….. It gives me the creeps every time!
From afar, it seems like a wall loaded with squared photos and scribbles, right?
Up close, these are poetic and proverbial notes conveying what the picture beside it is all about.
There lies a restobar atop this artsy reverie. We can’t help but take a decent group picture beside the humongous gecko.
This is what I wore bee tee dubs. All blue and casual for a day like this. To break the monotony, I finished the look with a pair of two-toned ballet flats (Of course, blue had to be there! hehe). Also, I’m currently crazy about beanie hats! dunno why!
We left the gallery hotel with eyes delighted and art-loving souls gratified.
Which piece of art is your fave?
