Mid-January 2015, the Pope visited the Philippines which meant three days of vacation for employees, like me, in NCR. Being a person wants to get away whenever she can, I grabbed the chance to take some R&R and bugged my dad to take us somewhere nice. He was so into vacation-mode since we stayed at Montemar Beach Club (Sosh!).

The next morning, we took a walking, guided tour of Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar, a heritage resort with a collection of restored Spanish-Filipino houses by Jose Acuzar. The resort transports you to 18th Century Philippines. Each house/casa has aΒ  unique story to tell. According to our guide, some parts of some of the houses like the banisters, beams, walls were from the original house and some houses were replicated on-site. Houses (original or replica) of some Filipino heroes, politicians and prominent people during the Spanish rule in the Philippines can be found in Las Casas. The place is so instagramable.

‘Til the next sosh tour,

So, this is us, this is love,
