Finding patches of green, more so a field of colorful flowers, is hard to do in Metro Manila. It's a good thing that the chilly foothills of Sierra Madre are just to the right, on our eastern border. If you're looking to go on a weekend getaway, breathe in some fresh air, and take photos of vibrant flowers, Celossian Flower Farm in Baras, Rizal, has reopened their doors post-quarantine (and post-super typhoon). It has rows of celosia flowers, which are known for their bright yellow, pink, and orange colors. Anyone can check out this kaleidoscopic attraction for only P20.

Beds of celosia 

The celosia, which is also known as woolflowers or cockscombs, features flame-like flower heads that bloom once a year. It grows in the wet season and is easily cultivated in humid areas.

1. Pinto Art Museum

Open from Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Admission fee is at P250


Pinto Art Museum houses a number of art galleries that feature pieces by Filipino contemporary artists. The structure was designed by architect Antonio Leano after art collector Joven Cuanang expressed his desire to build a place where he could exhibit his acquisitions and showcase Philippine art.

2. Burrow Café at Antipolo Beehouse

113 Beverly Hills Avenue, Beverly Hills Subdivision, Antipolo City, Rizal
Open from Wednesday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Saturday to Sunday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Burrow Café at Antipolo Beehouse is not only known for its food, but also for its location, which is partially underground. Customers have to go through a narrow staircase that leads to a restaurant with huge windows, drop ceiling lights, colorful chairs, and rustic tables.

3. Crescent Moon Café and Studio Pottery

Sapang Buho Road, Barangay Dalig, Antipolo City, Rizal
Open from Wednesday to Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.


This café-slash-pottery studio in Antipolo lets you feast on farm-to-table Southeast Asian fusion dishes like the Alagao Appetizer—which has been on their menu for 23 years—and Steamed Pompano with Nuoc Cham Sauce. Since Rizal is known for its suman, the restaurant offers the delicacy in different ways: Suman at Mangga, Suman a la Mode, Suman Itim, and Suman at Tsokolate.
