Singapore is not just about the gigantic edifices, colorful street lights and the lavish lifestyle. But more than that is the continuous preservation of its culture and arts beyond the modern society the city has, the sole reason of the birth of the Singapore Art Museum, a state-of-the-art museum that houses the largest collection of art expressions all around the Singapore and Southeast Asia, and a lifetime opportunity for everyone to experience the works and ideas of the living artist of the region.

Another reason to visit Tagaytay City is the museum that houses the biggest collection of puzzles that ranges from sizes, themes, motif and art forms - the main attraction of a bed and breakfast located at the hills of Tagaytay called The Puzzle Mansion. It has a lot more to offer than the beautiful scenery of the city. And I was destined to visit the mansion one weekend and fortunately met the owner and the title holder of the Guinness World Records' Largest Collection of Jigsaw Puzzles, Gina Gil-Lacuna.
61-year old Filipina Gina Gil Lacuna, has been awarded by the Guinness World Records as a person with the Largest Collection of Jigsaw Puzzles in any Size, Shape or Form on November 29, 2012. She beat the reigning Brazilian named Luiza Figueiredo with a collection of 500 puzzles. All of Lacuna's collections are housed at The Puzzle Mansion located at Cuadra Street, Barangay Asisan, Tagaytay and now a tourist attraction to many travelers who are visiting the city.
