“The Phobia Lane” At The Mind Museum

If in case you have mised the #MindBurst for this month of October, The Mind Museum focused on the “science of fear”. Aside from the usual trick or treat, there were discussions, experiments, exhibits and food concessionaires inspired by the things we fear.

The main attraction for this event is the “Phobia Lane” where the sections of the Special Exhibition Hall was divided in to different sections. Part of it was divided to create a basement, a dining area, a powder room, a bedroom and balcony. The in-house artists and designers of the museum were able to re-create a beautiful but scary set-up just for this event.

Below are some of the photos I took earlier.

The Dining Area

Hands and some rats on your plate with a wine glass filled with blood. How about that for dinner? Hey wait! there’s a bowl of worm as your side dish too. Bon Appetite!

Walls are adorned with photos of I-dont-know-who-they-are framed in an antique-colored wood with a fireplace lit with a bloody-colored light. They were also jars not filled with candies but with heads and other witchcrafts and sorcery stuff.

The Powder Room

Would you dare enter a dirty room for some retouch? Bet not! Especially if there are corpse wrapped in a garbage bag and tied up. There’s also an icebox containing another bloody corpse. At the side, a toilet bowl that could be the grossiest bowl you have ever seen. But the challenge was to dip your hands on it! I went towards the mirror only to find a basin with a cockroach and a cut FINGER andHoly &*^%! Was that a FETUS???

The Bedroom

And if you think you can now rest at the bedroom, there’s a surprise waiting for you. Would you lay down on a bed of roses, I mean nails with a decomposing corpse beside you. There were mutilated dolls as well to guard your sleep and OUIJA board on your side table. Hohoho!

A Place in the Sun – where “to holiday” in the Autumn and Winter

Autumn Tree

Dull, dark mornings and bitterly cold days can only mean one thing – winter is on its way. The trees are changing colour, the leaves are beginning to fall, while the sky above looks increasingly menacing.

Although several people look forward to wearing plenty of layers, snuggling up in front of the fire and watching the seasons change out of the window, the rest of us yearn for warmer climes. However, there are certain places in the world where the sun shines all year round.

Therefore, if you require a bit of sea and sand accompanied by an ever-present sun, don’t look any further than the following destinations.

8 Photos that will make you Visit the Crater Lake of Taal Volcano

Taal Volcano | Batangas

Its been a year since the first time I set foot on the crater lake of the world’s smallest but active volcano, Taal. It is also a volcano with a very unique distinction among others in the world, “the largest island, inside of a lake, which is on an island, which is inside a lake, which is on an island”,. I got more interested about this place in my hometown and that’s the reason why I am currently reading the book entitled, The Mysteries of Taal by Thomas Hargrove. What I have just read so far was really unbelievable and amazing. I am discovering stories and researches which I guess unknown to many particularly the new generations of locals living around the lake. I am hoping to share the stories soon once I have finished reading the book. For now kindly take a look at the photos I took last year using my digital camera, Nikon Coolpix 8200.

I am planning to go back weeks from now. If you wish to join the trip, please shoot an email at thetreasuretracker@gmail.com or text me at 0915.280.8561. I am not a travel agency, This is just a fun trek for friends and interested folks, so we can split expenses as well.
