What’s the Story Behind the Room?


It’s not unusual to see old Spanish houses in the Philippines after being a colony of Spain for more than 300 years. The best preserved Spanish houses are usually located in heritage cities like Vigan in Ilocos Sur, and Silay in Negros Occidental. I had the chance to visit one of the most famous heritage house in Silay City last May, the Balay Negrense. The museum is also known as the 117-year old ancestral house of Victor Gaston. The room that caught my attention the most from that house is the girl’s room:

According to the tour guide, the things in the room used to be property of the Gaston daughters. I remember being spooked out particularly by the dolls. They remind me of horror movies involving Chucky. I cant’ help but wonder, what were their stories? And if these dolls can project¬†scenes, what stories would they tell?

Check out the entries for this week’s photo challenge entitled¬†Room.

    Oh my, the dolls in the photo do look like Chucky :D I was always scared of Chucky as a kid. Had nightmares about him, not pleasant at all. I hope you didn’t get bad dreams after visiting this place.
