Yesterday, I spent the day exploring my local park. But first, I began my day with a hearty brunch of gyudon and milk tea coffee (yes, it’s apparently a thing!) at a Japanese restaurant.
Then, it was time for some culture at Quezon Memorial Circle. It was my first time at the park’s newest museum, the Presidential Car Museum.
The imposing modern building blended nicely with the park’s existing trees.
I was in awe of the vintage cars inside the museum.
As a history buff, this was quite a treat!
It was also lovely to see stamps inside the museum.
I enjoyed my time with the presidential cars, and I was pleasantly surprised to see cute souvenirs for sale outside.
The souvenir shop also carried NHCP publications at reasonable prices.
For my next stop, I went to Museo ni Quezon to reacquaint myself with the founder of my city.
I was delighted with my history trip, and it was time to have a snack.
I chose a coconut ice drop for merienda to beat the heat.
Coconut House inside Circle sells local products made of natural ingredients.
Then, it was time to go home, and savor the memories from my day tour of my local park.
Having fun doesn’t need to be expensive! Sometimes, a trip to the local park can be an educational and enjoyable experience. Hopefully, you also have nearby places where you can enjoy an afternoon of culture and history!
