About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Angel Cacnio and Bahay Parokyano Art Galleries in Malabon

    During the "Halina Lusungin natin ang Malabon," a visit to the house cum art gallery of Angel Cacnio, a new house with a bahay na bato look and filled with the artist's work of arts, paintings and scultures, including those of his son Ferdinand Cacnio.

    Angel Cacnio has won coin design contests of the Central Bank of the Philippines in 1967 where his designs won first prizes for the Lapu-Lapu one centavo coin and the Marcelo H. Del Pilar 50 centavo coin. His designs commissioned by the Central Bank for the P100 and P20 bills are still in circulation.

    Angel Cacnio's work featuring Sabong (cockfight)

    The last stop of the Malabon tour was a visit to Bahay Parokyano, an art gallery with exhibits from Malabon's budding artists

    Ferdie Cacnio, in 2005, won 2nd place in Art Association of the Philippines (AAP) Annual Art Competition. He also listed large mixed-metal sculpture “Pasasalamat (Thanksgiving)” which stands prominently in Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

    Bahay Parokyano is similar to Paete's Kape Kesada where young, promising artists can hone and display their works of art

    How to get there:

    Bahay Parokyano is located at 62 Bautista Blvd., Malabon City
    Tel. No. +

    Cool pictures. You always make me feel like I was there! :) I thought of you today when I posted because I gave a tiny history lesson... not nearly as in depth, but history nonetheless! lol!

    hi tutubi,

    Again, let me say, " great subjects and a job well done."

    It always makes me homesick to see pictures of the Philippines, especially its art and architecture.

    Thanks for posting these great photos.

    Wow, looks like a great arts place. Wouldn't mind visiting this myself. And you can even take pictures.

    It's great that you're always educating us about arts and artists in the Philippines Tutubi. I've never heard of Angel Cacnio before and it would indeed be interesting to visit his house/museum. I love that clock!

    where did you learn about this malabon trip?

    How interesting and what great art - thanks for sharing.

    Wishing you a great end to your week :-)

    If I were also an artist, I'd turn my house into an art gallery. I know someone who turned his house in Antipolo into a gallery and is now a party place for rent. He's not even an artist... just an art patron.

    Hi Tutubi. Hope you don't mind me linking you up with my blog.

    Hey thanks for posting these photos--I love that painting of the school of fish and the ballerina figurine. :)

    kyels, i was only able to watch sparring sessions of sabong. never been inside the cockpit where people congregate. i was thinking of taking pictures of cockfights (sidney has a series on that) plus horseracing

    ghee, so you're from malabon. my friends and i are planning an "unplanned" return trip there mainly to discover food places

    rochelle, so you now think of me when talking about history :P

    nini, thanks for the compliment. will post flowers and poems one of these days as some sort of filler posts

    mari, i have upcoming posts on my hometown arts and galleries after i'm through with some pending posts

    pieterbie, they're promoting the place and their works maybe that's why picture taking is allowed. picture taking inside galleries and museums are generally not permitted

    toe, angel cacnio and his son ferdie were also very accomodating. treated the whole group to a feast of various malabon delicacies. such hospitality

    carlotta, from the heritage conservation society yahoogroups where i'm lurking. the info was posted by AUgusto Villalon in his Inquirer column also

    rennyba, great art at the grassroots. had a great long weekend here. i have another travel post coming from it

    tani, i'm not an artist myself but i appreciate art. will blog about paete's art again later. thanks for linking me up :P

    gypsy, that ballerina is for sale but i didn't inquire about the price. let me know if you want it. i can get in touch with the artist :P

    how come you seem to know where to find good art? ;)

    At Nov 6, 2007, 10:15:00 AM, Anonymous tutubi said...

    dave, i don't know. maybe art always knows where to find me to blog about it :)

    i have a few upcoming posts on art again from my hometown :P
