Sunday Inspiration and Photograph : John 3:16

“For God so loved the world

That He gave His only begotten Son.

So that whoever believes in him should not perish,

But everlasting life”

I took this photo some few years back using a mobile phone, during a live staging of the “Passion of Christ” (Senakulo) in my provincial home town.  This is during the “Pieta” scene, when the dead Christ is brought down from the cross and the Virgin Mother is holding Him at the foot of the cross.  I have more photos of this Senakulo including the Pieta scene.  I hope I could share the story here some time.

The characters portraying on this live "Senakulo" are from youth organizations in my home town and they are doing the staging for free.


  1. Happy Easter gurl! Nice capture there. Di pa ko nakapanood ng Senakulo at Salubong, ala kase ganyan sa province (I mean sa barrio) namin, pasyon lang ang nakagisnan ko, o baka dahil lagi kong ala sa 'min kaya di ko alam...hehe, hirap ng palaboy. ;)

  2. Happy Easter dear! Musta Holy Week break mo?
    Naku marami nyan sa pinagmulan kong bayan. Mga pinetensya at kung ano-ano kumpleto dun. Meron din pasyon.

    Siguro nga kasi palaboy ka lol. Pero ok lang, nakaka-enjoy naman maglaboy :P

  3. Ganda ng kuha! 乂⍲‿⍲乂

  7. sistah! Dahil dito namiss ko tuloy yung panahong nasa bicol pa kami ng family ko. Meron kaming salubong na tinatawag. Yung mga bata na nakasuot ng white tapos may pakpak, angels to be exact, ibinababa from a high tower ba yun tapos panunuorin namin sila. Before that, may pasyon kami na mga bata. Kanya kanya kaming parada sa buong town since maliit lang naman. Lahat ng streets may sariling group at may sariling krus na ipinaparada. Yan ang mga namiss kong experience sa Bicol kapag ganitong mahal na araw. Happy Easter!

    1. Tingin ko lang teary eyed (or numangalngal ka lol) habang sinusulat mo etong comment mo... pati ako naluluha sa pag down memory lane mo eh :(
      Korek ka dyan sister nakaka-miss talaga lalo na kung naging parte ka ng mga ganung experience, kung pwede lang balikan. Hayan magkaka-iyakan na tayo nyan :(

Sunday Poem and Photograph: She Who Loves The Beach

It’s the second week of the new year and the official summer time in tropical Philippines is still two months short and yet all I’m thinking about is the beach. While people were stressing themselves with the holiday rush and parties, I was busy hopping from one beach to another.  I know this sounded weird but as I’ve said on my new year's post , I’m having flighty feet lately and my body has been shouting to spend time with nature specifically to the beach.  But, family and work obligations got in the way during the summer so when I got the chance to take a vacation I grabbed all the opportunities!  The hell I care about the cold December breeze I went beach and island hopping! I even ignore a gorgeous year-end party at the Palace Pool Club and declined other holiday-related invitations. Out of itchiness and longing, I even spent time (and money) to an urban man-made beach in the city.  However, it just worsen the longing rather than it served as a temporary remedy.  The longi

Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children

“this place will break your heart, will make you cry, will make you want to reach out, and will make you feel grateful & thankful, all at the same time…”   They are located at: 1030 Tayuman Street, Tondo, Manila. Their telephone number is (+632) 255-0832 and the contact person is Sister Anselm. I wrote that caption in this same season last year, my first time to visit a place called “Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children”.  I was with a  group of friends along with our respective families.  I could never be thankful enough to our friend Rupert and his family for leading us to this place.  It was not my first time to do a charity visit to an orphanage and I sort of wonder why we were “brief” that this is for special children.  I only realized what that briefing is about when I see for myself how “special” these children are.  I apologize if this may not sound good to some, but the sight of the sick children is heartbreaking.  I tried to look tough and not to
