MIRACLE ART, The Coolest Art Exhibition is finally in Cavite!


If you are thinking of a different place to take your family, friends, or even your loved ones in Imus, Cavite; no need to go far as MIRACLE ART is finally here!

This is a great destination for all that will bring a lot of fun and unforgettable memories. I am very sure that in the coming days, this will draw a lot of crowds.

Once you are inside, you will see multi-dimensional illusion pictures drawn using special techniques. In the exhibition, you will find yourself part of the image when you take the pictures. Isn't that cool! 

I was also told that these paintings were all done by Filipinos which made me so proud. Nothing feels better than supporting our own talents. 

Inside the exhibition, you will find over 20 huge art pieces all of them with different themes and sizes. Make sure that you have your camera ready all the time to take pictures. This is such a fun place! 


Since I was alone, the staff were very helpful and helped me take pictures and even gave advice on different poses. A little bit of acting is required and if you want to come up with great images, my advice is not to be shy! 



That cat was just too fast to catch! 


I didn't know being swallowed by a whirlpool was fun!







Some of my favorites are the picture of Jesus Christ and the Angel's wings. 



Oops! My wings are a bit low! 



Finally, I found the perfect wings for me! Lol.. 




With so much creativity found inside the exhibition, visitors are also expected to do the same. You won't find boring images inside. All of them are unique and one could always think of something cool to do with it. 



In one of the sections in the exhibit, are the life-sized paintings that extend to the floor. I really enjoyed this as it felt as if you are really part of the image. This dinosaur in the picture really looked like it's about to swallow me! 



I really like the idea of you being part of the whole image. 







MIRACLE ART is definitely a great addition that would really take you into great adventure. Not something you normally find in Cavite but I am glad they established one here. Now, there're more reasons to go down south and check this one out! 

I would like to thank Michael and Jerome, for being helpful in assisting me during my visit. 



MIRACLE ART is located at THE DISTRICT, IMUS, CAVITE. Schedule: 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM


ENTRANCE FEE: Php 150.00

LAYON BILOG River View - Another attraction at the foot of Mt. Talamitam in Nasugbu, Batangas.

A lot of mountaineers flock to Mt. Talamitam because of its beautiful scenery. But the area holds another secret attraction. Located at Barangay Bayabasan there are fresh water streams that will refresh any mountaineers and tourists in the area. 

Recently, they opened a new campsite and picnic area at the foot of Mt. Talamitam 

which is called Layon Bilog River View. There is parking in the area with minimal costs. It is safer to park your can inside as it gets more shade and is more secure. 






From the parking lot, a 500 meter walk down will take you to the camp site. 



The lush green of the area makes it an ideal site for camping and picnic. They also have toilets and bath if you want to wash up or change clothes. 


An overnight stay here will cost you Php 50.00 per head. And if you want to swim down the river or picnic, there is an entrance fee of Php 20.00. 


Looking down, you would already see a glimpse of the Layon Bilog River which was the main reason why we were here. 


After having lunch, we decided to walk down and head straight to the river. Going down was a bit of an adventure as you walk through the bamboo stilts and rocks around the river. 











Listening to the rapids of the river was so relaxing that's why we came here, to relax and to just enjoy the scenery! It felt so private too since we were the only ones aside from the locals who were here. 

One of the many things I like about this place is the whole atmosphere. You still see some locals doing their washing here at the river side which is very rare to see nowadays. 


You are probably wondering what LAYON actually means. In Nasugbu, Batangas, Layon means cove or lagoon. As you can see, the river has many coves or lagoons which is ideal for swimming. It's like natural mini pools! 




While at the river, you can put your stuff anywhere but always be careful with your belongings and keep the place clean. CLEAN AS YOU GO (CLAYGO)



If you're searching for more adventure, they also have rappelling or a cliff jump at the deeper part of the river. 





Just be careful where you dive as you can never tell where it's shallow or not. That's why I asked the locals who were swimming there to try it first since they know the place very well. 


But for those who cannot swim, you can still enjoy the place just by chilling out with friends and just having a great time! 

Layon Bilog River View is definitely a hit to all who wish to cool down after their climb at Mt. Talamitam or just to go on a nature trip with friends and family. 

If you are planning a visit to the place, you may contact Kuya Gany or Ate Glo in this number : 0928-945-8351
