Via Crucis: 14 Churches in Metro Manila East (part 2)

from part 1....

Going around the Metro Manila East side is quite easy even with or without a car, and finding one nice church to continue your Visita Iglesia comes a little easy to. So, to continue sharing the Visita Iglesia that I did with my aunt last year, here are the rest of the churches that we visited on the eastern part of the metropolis....

The Eighth Church - San Felipe Neri Church

Located along Boni Avenue on the bustling City of Mandaluyong, San Felipe Neri Church is the only church in the whole country erected under the name of San Felipe de Neri, the old name of Mandaluyong City after it gained its independence from the Municipality of San Juan del Monte back in March 27, 1907.

San Felipe Neric Church is considered the oldest church in this city, showing stoned walls that has been there since the Spanich colonization.

Ssan Felipe Neri is the patron of Joy.

Via Crucis: 14 Churches in Metro Manila East (part1)

Did you know that aside from the historic and truly majestic churches that one can find in Manila City, there are also some numerous and architecturally appealing churches and chapels that you can find in the eastern part of the metropolis - primarily in Pasig City, Mandaluyong City and Quezon City. And on these cities I had my Holy Week devotion last year - the Visita Iglesia.

Visita Iglesia has been my devotion since I was in fourth grade. And together with my two aunts, we are always out on the street visiting 14 churches every Maundy Thursday or the day when Visita Iglesia is usually  done.

Bolinao Falls: The Cascading Beauty of Bolinao, Pangasinan

Bolinao, Pangasinan has been on top of my list since I started travelling around the country, and with blogs and write-ups telling how beautiful and serene the province is, I know that there's more too see in this place that is basically untouched and not that well publicized. Thus, I'm happy to stumble upon knowing Bolinao's cascading beauty, the Bolinao Falls.

Located at the northern part of the town, 30 minutes or less from the town's central, you'll be guided by some rough road to this beauty that will refresh you even before you see the rest of the town. I suggest if you are planning to go here, you have already arranged a tour with the hotel or resort that you are staying in for it is a little far from the usual tourist spots. It was Puerto del Sol, our resort for our Bolinao trip, that arranged all our trips then, so, yeah, I'm highly recommending them if you haven't booked any hotel or resort yet here in Bolinao, Pangasinan.

Leveling to the beauty of its sister town, Alaminos that has the well-known Hundred Islands, Bolinao shouldn't be missed for its virgin sites that will definitely add excitement and wowing moment to your trip here in this Pangasinan.

That Romantic Spot at Eton City

Ever since that moment where I did the pre-nuptial photo shoot of my friend's best friend, I can't help myself but to see more aspiring romantic places that I think will look good in photos, most especially with those lovers clinging or holding hands while walking. And a few days back, I found another place again that I would love to be the back draft of my next masterpieces - and that place is in Eton City, Laguna.

Nestled at the very peaceful lot of Sta. Rosa, Laguna, Eton City is one of the budding commercial and residential area that is going head to head with one of the hottest tourist hangout places now, Nuvali.

I've been to Nuvali countless times, and seeing how many people flock to this place now, it is hard to find it that romantic now. Good thing, with its less crowd and mostly untouched man-made structure in its vicinity, Eton City offers a much more romantic breathing spot that I would love to see again.

My Panagbenga 2013 Experience

"There's no turning back."  That's all in my mind after an hour of waiting in Dau Bus Terminal in Mabalacat, Pampangga. And despite of my limited budget to see the most colorful festival of the season, I found myself on the way to the Summer Capital of the Philippines to witness the Panagbenga 2013!

Arriving at Baguio City at exactly 4 in the morning or February 24 was the bravest thing I did ever, I guess, in visiting this cold place up north. And with no itinerary whatsoever, really, I was left standing at Session Road looking at about hundreds of people, whom I thought were braver than me... because you know why? They are sleeping along the busy road of Session Road just to be on the front line when the Grand Float Parade takes its turn to wow the world.

I never thought that there are really people who would do that, but I guess die freezing and be on the front line is better than die at the back of the line and not see a thing of the most glamorous and blossoming parade of floats on this year's Panagbenga. Hehe.
