When Moss Manila takes the Ruins in Poblacion and recreated three key visual locations that would be seen in the second season of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Open for the public, guests are ushered into a waiting area of some sort where Moss Manila recreated the Dark Alley with a facade that replicates the scenes found in the series as well dressing up the interior with floor to ceiling walls that transports the public to the “In” restaurant, Cafe Salmonella. Everyone is treated to a unique dining experience where all dishes served are Salmon based.
Moss Manila’s eye to detail incorporated the wallpaper treatment, as well as the fish divider wall decor up to recreating the salmon seat covers. As the guests go up the second floor, this is where guests get a taste of the different unfortunate things, where the Filipino myth of having the number count of steps at home end in either Oro or Mata and never Plata. Slowly as guests head up, they are faced with webs that have spiders hanging from above. On the second floor, guests are faced with roving eyes images, and they’re surprised by an overhead of open umbrellas with suspended lightbulb that add in the mood of the second floor. Unfortunate things ahead! #HowUnfortunate
