Let it be known that I am no artist. In fact, people are quick to judge my draw stick figures and my lettering. Also, every piece of art is good to me. I can never distinguish which is good or bad, but since it’s subjective, I want to console myself by saying that it doesn’t matter. I am very easily pleased and very easily awed by the beautiful.
Suffice to say, I thoroughly enjoyed BenCab. It’s our first stop in our short Baguio Weekend, since we figured it’s quite out of the way. It’s located less than 30 minutes away from Baguio, and it’s definitely worth a visit. The museum is overlooking a valley and a well landscaped garden. There are works from different artists, and of course, Sir BenCab’s works. I’ll stop talking now, because no words can ever succeed in describing art. (Also, it will only sound presumptuous coming from me. Heh.)
So many beautiful works in display! I really kind of wish I understand art or even have a better appreciation of it. This trip could have been more memorable.
After strolling around the museum, we had a late lunch at Cafe Sabel which is in the ground floor of the museum. With the weather so nice and a view so grand, we opted to have our lunch outside. I usually prefer eating indoors, but I couldn’t pass up that chance. It’s quite on the pricey side, but I really liked my Duck Flakes!
Eunise had Spicy Tuyo Pasta, I think. It was pretty good, but a tad too salty. Iris had Chicken Cacciatore which she doesn’t like that much, but I actually think it’s okay. I had Duck Flakes and it was sooooooo good, okay. I’m a sucker for Adobo Flakes, so it’s no surprise that I loved their Duck Flakes. It’s definitely a must-try.
If you don’t have your own mode of transpo, the place is pretty accessible. You just have to ride a jeepney going to Asin Road from the Baguio City market (just ask around). I hear from others that it’s pretty far, but I actually think it’s quite near. It took us about 3 and half hours all in all, including the travel period.
