How I spent my Lenten 2013
March 28, 2013
Alay Lakad. I never, in my life participated this event before. Even though I’m originally from Antipolo City but for the sake of blogging and friendship I tried to walk with a mob of so called believers. It is indeed an oxygen depriving hike and we really had a struggle to walk with a bandwagon of practitioners not to mention that I’m only carrying my camera without any strap.
My original plan was to spend the night at Hiro’s place since he promised that we’ll eat a lot and play X-box but my life is simply grander because of my spontaneous friends. Might be doing it again next year.
Therapeutic chain of events.

I was able to meet-up with my friend, Olive, somewhere in Pampanga during my three day stay there. She’s surprisingly tall and I sincerely love her voice! It sounds somehow different on the phone and on Skype where we used to jam late at night annoying our neighbors trying to catch some sleep. We spent our time together singing, playing the guitar in real life and we watched a movie as well.
It’s our first time to meet in person by the way but we feel very comfortable with each other. I believe it’s because we’re both nurses and we have so much in common. Feels good! Life is so much better outside the internet. Seriously.

It wasn’t my first time to visit the beautiful city of Baguio and heck I’ve been here like about five times or more already but there are still a lot more stuff to take photos of.
So blessed to visit the place during their Baguio Flower Festival, more known as “Panagbenga” festival. Indeed so loud, vivid, and colorful but I decided not to take photos of the floats and the performing bands just because, frankly, I was pissed not to have given the permission to take photos beyond the media/sponsor area which really sucks because I only have 60mm prime lens with me. But yeah, redemption is to be acquired next time soon.
Welcome, Year of the Water Snake.

China Town Binondo Manila
To be honest, last year’s celebration was more extravagant. Fellow attendees from last year’s Chinese New Year photo-walk will certainly agree. There wasn’t much to take photos of so I spent my time chatting with my good old friends and made new ones as well.
Thank You JaywalkersPH for organizing great photography events here in tumblr. Until next time!
The Sinulog Festival 2013
Cebu City, Philippines.
Viva Pit Senyor! A loud cheer coming from both locals and tourists. Truly one of the grandest and most colorful festivals celebrated here in our country. The main festival is held each year on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City to honor the Santo Niño, or the child Jesus that marked the start of Christianity in the Philippines. The festival does not only showcase the spread of Christianity but also the different cultures and goodies we can discover in Cebu.
More photos from my Sinulog Festival experience. Thanks Zest Air! :)
The Cagsaua Ruins
Legazpi Bicol, Philippines
November 26, 2012
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.
Avoiding Hateful Eyes.
Decided to come along and stay with my grandpa at his place in Pampanga. Been dreadful these past few days.
I’m so sick and tired of being accused with acts that I never did and I feel so down being judged of someone I am not. I’m well aware that prejudice is inevitable but they should also know that people get sore with their false allegations. I’m all drained.
