' LAKBAY MUSEO' AT CONRAD MANILA CELEBRATES PH HERITAGE
There’s an entire generation of people who hunger for travel and live for the excitement of discovering new sights and places to explore. This rings true for many young Filipinos who are now discovering and revisiting many of the Philippines’ best vacation spots, immersing themselves with the country’s unique history through festivals, fashion, and food.
Presenting the best that the Philippines has to offer and so much more is “Lakbay Museo,” which will open to the public on July 12. Located at S Maison in Conrad Manila at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) complex, “Lakbay Museo” was built on the foundation of environment conservation. Nearly all of the exhibits were constructed using 4,560 old and used rubber slippers and scrapped materials, 328 old rubber tires, 453 old car mats, and a variety of recyclable materials.
A project of The Millennial Concept Factory Inc., headed by COO Lawrence Li Tan, “Lakbay Museo” offers a chance for young people to travel the across the Philippines and know more about the country’s history and culture in one massive space.
“Lakbay Museo” also presents a showcase of unique experiences, from tasting regional cuisine, seeing traditional textiles, to standing across many of the prominent tourist spots in the Philippines such as the Mayon Volcano in Albay and the Magellan’s Cross in Cebu.
These Instagram-worthy exhibits present an artistic take on the colorful fabric of our country. Aside from real food to eat, and real hand-made products to enjoy, “Lakbay Museo” also features the masterful work of local artists who have created thousands of realistic replicas of the various market produce farmers and fishermen provide, to build our nation’s everyday lives–a multitude of fish species and a variety of vegetables and fruits lovingly crafted to display the many things one has yet to discover about our country.
Over 600 regional dishes were also gathered to showcase more than just the usual adobo, tinola or sinigang that we are used to. Of course, who can forget about everyone’s favorite bagoong (shrimp paste)? More than one variety is available. And what about suka (vinegar)? Different levels of sourness can be had from various regions, giving you a literal taste that is so distinct for each area of the country.
