The Mind Museum – Amusing minds…

The Mind Museum – Amusing minds… 

“The painter has the universe in his mind and hands.” 
~Leonardo da Vinci~

If there’s a prize for the Filipino children of this generation. I must say its’ the museums kept intact in the Philippines like The Mind Museum.

It is classic and at the same time uber modern mix of art and science intricately rolled up into one, as if the other can’t do without the other. Moreso, a museum that makes us enjoy the best of both worlds.

The first time I went there, I was reminded of Enchanted Kingdom. There’s a wristband as pass with stickers that’s not as hard to peel off like those in Enchanted Kingdom. There’s an inviting souvenir shop acting like magnets attracting you to visit and bring home something as literally a souvenir.

I can’t recall if there’s a turnstile and upon venturing inside, it was truly awesome. For kids who are the hungriest to discover things that are still new to them, this place is like a beauty, dropping jaws, and shrieks of different kinds you will hear the whole time of your exploration. It is definitely a “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” thing.

Observing the other guests, especially the kids (and the ones who are kids at heart) I see them having fun the whole time.

I’m no so sure, how long this museum was constructed. Though, I am so sure, each work of art were carefully planned and executed – to painstakingly come up with this amusing chance for us to re-discover things that have been tackled when we were still in school is truly colossal. Museums nowadays are evolving. I am anticipating more modern stuff to come for the new generation to surmise and and expect in anticipation. By that time, ours is going to be part of the past already.

Creativity is a word that you can always yoke with this museum. The signage’s, the presentations, the series (or maybe I haven’t seen foreign museums yet though I see them in Google too) the concept and design is orderly and mindfully brought into being.

If I may, I am suggesting to all parents to encourage their kids into visiting the past, the present and their tomorrows by visiting museums such as this. It’s an experience they will really flip over and remember with a smile. It will stimulate their senses, help them be smarter in class and be able to correlate related subjects and be able to expound on a specific subject since they’ve seen the “What, How and Where” (and when) that were showcased in “The Mind Museum”. It is definitely gratifying. Come and see and let their senses(all of it) be awaken.

Please take a peep:

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
