Yap-Sandiego Ancestral House Cebu

It was night time when I visited this ancestral house in Cebu,but i posted this photo taken during the day for you to recognize the place when you walk along the streets of Parian.  The ancestral house usually closes as early as 6pm but because of my charm (my Cebuano escort’s actually), we were allowed to come inside the place and take some photos.  There’s a minimal fee of 20 or 30 pesos.

I was drawn to these paintings hanging near the entrance walls.

Ceramics and Potteries

porcelain pots

framed ornament made of capiz shells

2nd floor dining room

the old kitchen tools

i admired the harp longer!
