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 projectΒ scenes, what stories would they tell?

Check out the entries for this week’s photo challenge entitledΒ 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.
