Yesterday, my car had a flat tire. Luckily, I was able to drive to the mall and park properly.
I was assisted by the guards at Vertis North. They expertly changed my flat tire and assured me that everything will be alright. They even refused the tip that I was giving. They were polite, professional, and kind. My faith in humanity has been restored.
I then proceeded to the Ayala Museum for the Insulae Indiae Orientalis exhibit of antique maps and prints.
I was so excited for this as I am a map nerd at heart! I simply had to catch it on its first day of exhibition.
I was greeted by the rarest maps which stirred my feelings of nationalism.
Finally, I was able to reach the Murillo Room, which showcased an assortment of extremely rare Murillo Velarde Philippine maps from the 18th century.
It was a beautiful exhibition! The maps were breathtaking, and the corresponding materials were interesting companions to the stars of the show. I am fascinated with antique maps mainly for their beauty, but now, I also see them as significant tools for nation-building. I hope that you will also be able to appreciate antique maps, and get the chance to view them whenever they are exhibited to the public.
