After we got over the initial awe of The Luxe Bus, we proceeded on our trip. Like I said I knew nothing about this trip, except that it was a culinary tour.
After a scenic drive (here are some photos)
Shortly after breakfast, the owner, Rod came out to talk to us about the house, cafe and its origins. He is passionate about preserving rich Filipino heritage and tradition. One of his projects is restoring old houses back to their original glory. He relocates the houses to their compound (where Sulyap is) and converts them into Bed and Breakfast rooms. It’s awesome.
After breakfast, we had a stroll through the grounds onto the museum which used to be a school.
Now it showcases various furniture, home decor and other knickknacks. They tell a story of the evolution of Filipino homes through the decades. This is also an outlet for Rod’s passion as he himself is the museum curator. He took us through a lively tour of each of the rooms, offering up a wealth of knowledge. His enthusiasm is infectious.
I would love to come back and stay here some day.
Sorry, I purposely didn’t take that many pictures because it’s a place you should visit and see for yourself 🙂
