The Book Museum Cum Ethnology Center: More Attractions and an All-Improved James Dean Cafe Await Visitors


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Here are the videos we made from our visit at the already huge complex located in Marikina city featuring Rex Bookstore owner Atty. Dominador Buhain's impressive collection of books and artifacts from his travels throughout the years at different countries.

They recently had an expansion which now also highlights equally stunning new collections and other facilities making the center a bigger and better educational destination. Their showcase of books and relics got a lot more bigger as it now features various collections of rock formations and head gears from all over the world.

If you're really into historical relics from all over the world, their wide and assorted collection will definitely amaze you. A must visit that won't disappoint your curiosity.

This is the second time we got invited at their place so instead of a full article, we thought we make it a series of videos instead featuring everything from the previous to the new ones, including a short interview with the owner himself (Now this is a big bonus since it was unplanned. We are grateful that Atty. Buhain granted our request for a video, and that is included as part of the video series).

Plus an all-improved café created in homage of James Dean and thus it is fitting to be called the James Dean Café, where we got to try some of their American dishes from burgers, to hotdogs, sandwiches and of course,  coffee (both hot and cold variety).

The only surprising images at this café is the characters from the Peter Pan fantasy series that adorned the bathroom. We learned that aside from James Dean, Peter Pan is also one of the favorite characters of the owner. You'll even see inside the bathroom a photo of him dressed up as Peter Pan.

True enough, the traveler cum collector cum businessman is still somewhat a child at heart for he still looks back and incorporates his childhood into his current undertakings. This is something commendable as most of us seems to lose the fun we had and become so serious when we grow up.

I would want to be doing almost the same things as what Atty. Buhain has done... not only collecting but also sharing his discoveries to others as part of his museum. He may have been busy operating a business selling books at Rex Bookstore, but he still finds fun time for himself.

I want to retire having the same luxury as the man. But for now I could only dream as not all of us are born that lucky.
