Quezon City 75th Diamond Jubilee Celebration Launch

Thursday, October 8, 2015

     I'm a true blooded resident of Quezon City. I was born and raised in Quezon City, north area to be exact. Quezon City is the largest city of Metropolitan Manila and also called the "City of the Stars" because most of our showbiz actors and actresses resides here. Even though I've been living here for past three decades, little did I know of this town's history. I was surprised that Ex-President Manuel L. Quezon's house was inside Quezon Memorial Heritage House. Am I the only one who was surprised? Raised your hands if you also do! 

     I was invited to have a short tour to Ex-President Manuel L. Quezon's house last weekend. It was one hot Saturday but everyone invited were giddy to see what mysteries were hidden inside the house. No it's not the creepy kind of mystery but what lies behind the abode of this overlooked personality in Philippine history. A short tour inside his house below, scroll down please :)
     TRIVIA: The original location of Ex-President Manuel L. Quezon's house was in Gilmore St. New Manila and it was just transferred to Quezon City. It's a replica of their vacation house and some of the remnants from the old house was brought there.

     Before entering the house, I've stepped in a different kind of flooring because the tile's design is unique. The tour guide said that it was taken from the original house including the grills, doors, and windows.

     There were different sign boards hanging in the walls. These sign boards tell a brief story of each room and why it is an important part of the house.

     From Ex- President Manuel L. Quezon's room- his bed and cabinets, to the family's dining table, the children's room, guest room, and clothes of his wife Dona Aurora, every part of the house was timeless. I had goosebumps entering the rooms because of astonishment, it's like really living in the historic past.

     It was a two-storey house. There's a spiral staircase that will lead to the house's ground/first floor. More rooms can be seen there and some furniture including sala sets made of narra wood.

     After the tour, we also had our mug shots taken. This is called project headshot headed by the one and only Niccolo Cosme. Each blogger will pose in front of the camera and will be holding something symbolical. In support of Quezon City's 75 Jubilee Celebration, we posed with #QC75
