This was a few years ago and I’ve finally thought of doing a decent blog for SDASM 😅.
I figured out Ripley’s Believe it or Not exhibition is in town. I would finally know how I can open the “Mystery Gate.”
Ripley’s Believe It or Not Exhibit was in the Philippines during the 90’s in Shangrila (I think). We had a school field trip there and it was lots of fun! The exhibition is very interactive, informative, larger that life, “high tech” (elibs ako sa Hologram na Mr. Ripley tapos nai-angat pa niya ang book sa desk niya kahit hindi siya in-real life 😅). Ripley’s coincided with the Batibot exhibit (that was also part of the field trip) with the theme: “Children of the World” something like that. The theme song is right here.
Because of time constraints (or maybe failure to foresee what the exhibits has to offer). We were asked by teachers to hurry up because we need to be in another place ( I remember, hands clapping asking us to just breathe and go). I was at the Mystery Gate exhibit and I never had the chance to unlock the mystery gate.
The thing is, I love the Ripley’s because there were lots of helpful staff who were on the floor to assist and educate you about the artifacts in place.
I was bitter.
Fast forward to today… Lo and behold!
And my bitterness faded away. LOL
I know I could’ve just googled searched it but, I want to find out and see with my own eyes!
And here are the other exhibits.
Before the Crazy Cat Lady Starter kit. We have the Vampire Killing Kit.
Tallest man in the world. My husband looks like his child. LOL
Eeeeek!!!!! I’m not even half his height.
After Ripley’s we went out straight to the Air & Space Museum.
Loving the pink boots! Was it comfortable wearing boots as a FA? It looks cool though.
In this museum, I discovered about pressed penny as a souvenir collection.
Found these electric cars outside the parking lot. I’m thinking of giving my mom one. LOL.
Sorry if my pics are not of great quality. During that time, I’m still working on using the prime lens that I got. When in truth, until this day I was never able to do/use/master the use of prime lens. Jokes on me 😑.
I had a great time!
This place is great to visit especially if you wanted to know more about the aviation history and space frontiers of the previous century.

I saw that Ripley’s collection when it was at Air and Space a few years ago, too! So many amazing things in this world of ours!
