Tagaytay Weekend with Mike at Puzzle Mansion
Mike & I wanted to experience something new in Tagaytay and since we've visited this city for a couple of times we thought of checking out Puzzle Mansion as we saw a lot of its signs along the road.
The Puzzle Mansion was just easy to locate, you just have to follow the Puzzle Mansion sign. We had a car so we didn't had a difficult time with the inclined slope upon entering.

Entrance fee is P100 per person even for children. You will be welcomed by a huge blue puzzle piece.
At the right area there are bed and breakfast rooms with a swimming pool.

At the left side you'll see a two storey house, which is the Puzzle Mansion. Mike was a bit 'puzzled' while looking at the house, he was expecting a literal mansion made of puzzle pieces! Oh you should see my face when he said it! Hahaha!!! So for the benefit of everybody, no, it's not a mansion made of puzzle but a house full of her puzzle collection of different kinds.

She has been featured on so many local TV shows with her wide collection of all sorts of puzzles. Puzzle Mansion has the biggest collection of rare and popular puzzles of a wide range of sizes, genres, sources, subject matter and art forms. And would you believe that she finished every single set all by herself?

At the second floor lies the world's biggest puzzle set to date, Keith Haring Double Retrospect is a 32,000 piece puzzle. Ms Gina is also planning of joining another category of Guinness World Record.

At the same floor you will also see a souvenir shop full of puzzle boxes where you can buy to start your own collection.
I also had an opportunity of taking a picture with Ms Gina herself. She's very accommodating and camera friendly. She encourages her customers to start their own puzzle collection, I heard her say that it's not necessary to finish it in one sitting especially if it's a large set but what's important is finishing it so you'll feel fulfilled and can sleep soundly at night.
