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. Hey THANKS! yeah "Heart of the Bible"

    will check your site now and connect to whatever :)))

  4. misses the Passion of Christ dyan sa Pinas..8 years never witnessed it, hopefully I can go home next year during Lent season.

    1. Happy Easter sis!
      Thanks for following back!

  6. 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 :(

      Happy Easter na nga!

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

Tomorrow Is Not Promised

I was going around my stuff that I packed two years ago, back in the time when I decided that I’m done with the corporate world.  I realized that I did not check back to this box-load of stuff since I packed it when I exited that world of mine. The sad thing is that, I’m digging this box because I’m looking for a document that will support a stupid system that halted something that I had worked so hard for a couple of weeks.  I was feeling upset and frustrated while doing the digging. I realized there are lots of things in this box that I really really love.  They are of no financial values.  Just the silly stuff that I can’t take away so I just keep them.  As I picked and tousled things, I came across some small notebooks where I used to write anything that I can think of  at the moment. One of the small notebooks is a favorite since college days.  It is covered with my stamp collections and in it are my favorite quotations, prose, phrases and some poems that I personally wrote.
