The Days of Holy Week

The alarm gently buzzed at 4:00 in the morning on Good Friday and knew it was time to get prepared for a long walk! Jerdz and I ate breakfast (an instant beef noodle soup and coffee, just enough to keep us going till we reach our destination)... took a shower and left at 6am for our yearly Visita Iglesia.  We did our normal route starting from Blumentritt and ends in Intramuros... we noticed that unlike the past years, there are more people doing "the walk" that we almost bump into each other. Quiapo church was jampacked with people as always!  It seems like the streets of Manila was quiet-er in the past years' Good Friday than this year, but it's ok. We finished faster this time... we did it in 3.5 hrs! After the long walk, we grabbed some snacks in the streets of Intramuros.

Sweet Summer

 "From small beginnings come great things" --Proverb

It's here!  It's summer! It is officially summer, beginning last week... and boy, i can really feel the hot weather! But it's okay, summer is still one of my favorite times of the year (the other one is Christmas of course). There is just something about it that makes me feel more alive. I was telling my husband yesterday how thrilled I am, and that I feel that I'm wierd because for me, summer (like Christmas) has a certain scent.  Is it just me? Oh well... and did I mention that I love summer? In this very short post alone I wrote the word summer eight times already (and I bet you're counting it right now) =)

I caught myself last weekend looking for tank tops in my closet trying to prepare for the summer activities ahead... there's the yearly procession and the visita iglesia with my favorite person, Jerdz.... and maybe some family get-together =D This month, we will be covering Jake and JM's  destination wedding too... and I'm sooo excited, if not overexcited!!! More updates coming soon! =) Pin It
