Sharpening the Ends.
December 14, 2012
Final preparation for tomorrow’s board exam. I’m quite anxious with a mixed feeling of excitement for what we nursing graduates call the Judgement Day. This will be my first attempt and I hope it’d be the last. Pray with me guys. Thank you! :)
The Cagsaua Ruins
Legazpi Bicol, Philippines

The baroque church of Cagsawa was built after 1724 by Franciscan friars under Fray Francisco Blanco in the small town of Cagsawa (spelled as Cagsaua during the Hispanic occupation of the Philippines). It was supposed to replace an earlier church built in 1636 that had been burned down by Dutch pirates.
It was destroyed during the most destructive eruption of the nearby Mayon Volcano in February 1, 1814. The eruption killed an estimated 1,200 people in the surrounding areas and buried the town of Cagsawa (among others) under several hundred million cubic meters of ash. Hundreds of inhabitants of the town of Cagsawa purportedly sought refuge in the church, but were also killed by either pyroclastic flows or lahar. Only the belfry and some parts of the convent survive today, though parts of the crumbling facade were still standing long after the 1814 eruption as attested by photographs. It is believed that the facade of the structure collapsed due to earthquakes in the 1950’s.

From reading its name and if you were taught Philippine History you will distinguish that they cater Filipino cuisine. Well they do and with much respect they actually do it tremendously well.
The restaurant’s theme is all Filipino! Nipa huts, rattan furniture, Katipunero costume as crew uniforms and not to mention they only play Original Pinoy Music.

I’ve always been curious about this place. Whenever I walk across this restaurant I tell myself that one day I’ll be able and willing to burn some money for it… and I finally did. To be honest, I fancy Thailand. Everything about it. Muay Thai, their culture, their beaches, EVERYTHING. Well let’s say except for the fact that there are many people there who have undergone sex change.
Burning up some cash was never better! Plus, I enjoyed taking photos with my new ultra wide angle lens, a Tokina 12-24mm f/4. :)
Then after munching down the enemy, we went straight to the cinema to do our primary goal… watch The Bourne Legacy! It was great! I don’t want to spoil you but I give it 4.7/5. After the movie we went thrift shopping where I got to buy a coat and a plaid long sleeve. :D

Finally, I was able to meet my Nihonggo teacher-slash-tumblr buddy Laura Clarissa in person for the first time two days after arriving home from Japan where she was an exchange student of the University of the Philippines. We met and that day absolutely filled our hearts and tummies with *too* much of everything. Overwhelming, it is.
