Surrounded by skyscrapers, Ayala Triangle is an urban oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of the business district Makati. Visitors can go jogging here, have a picnic, marvel at the public sculptures, or simply hangout. Coffee shops and restaurants also dot one side of the park, serving as a favorite hangout place among young professionals. With more than a hundred trees, Ayala Triangle is the largest park with the most number of trees in Makati City. At the corners of the park are three monuments: a statue of Benigno Aquino, the assassinated Martial Law Hero; of Sultan Kudarat, the Sultan of Mindanao during the Spanish era; and of Gabriela Silang, the revolutionary heroine from Ilocos during the Spanish invasion.
Ayala Museum in Makati City is an ambitious take on viewing the country’s rich history from a refreshing perspective. Two of the museum’s most prominent galleries are the Diorama Experience and the Gold of Ancestors. The Diorama Experience highlights 60 events that shaped Philippine history. The scenes are recreated in miniature wooden figures, stage-designed in glass boxes like a cultural barbie house. Located on the fourth floor, meanwhile, the Gold of Ancestors showcases ancient Filipinos’ incredible craftsmanship on the most malleable and most coveted metal on earth, gold. This gallery displays an astonishing 1,059 gold items pre-dating the Spanish period. Besides these two prominent galleries, Ayala Museum has an extensive collection of Chinese and Southeast Asian ceramics, as well as rare fashionable garments from the 18th and 19th century Philippines. On the third floor, you’ll find the Masters Galleries, which feature pioneering Filipino artists such as Fernando Amorsolo and Fernando Zobel.
Like stepping into your grandmother’s attic, walking into Barangay Bangkal in Makati City offers unique vintage treasures you can’t find anywhere else. Comprising a whole barangay, Bangkal mostly sells secondhand furniture and antique, from beds, cabinets, and dining tables, to vinyl record players, typewriters, instamatic cameras, and rotary phones. Residential apartments in Bangkal are turned into makeshift thrift stores, where big items are displayed outside, and small items inside. Each store offers a variety of interesting junk from the past. Some smell exactly like your grandmother’s attic, some smell like a moldy library, while some, the collective smell of used, old shoes. Aside from furniture and outmoded technology, other stores specialize in selling secondhand clothing, bags, books, toys, paintings, old music and movie records, and a host of other interesting things.
