Photo Talk: An Independence Day 2013 Special Post

Last year 2012 I made an Independence Day special post where I took you on a tour Inside the Home of General Emilio Aguinaldo.  I mentioned from that post that I am hoping to share more photos I took during my trip to the ancestral mansion of General Emilio Aguinaldo where the declaration happened in 1898.

Today June 12, 2013 the Philippines is celebrating the 115th year of Independence.  I chose this as the most fitting time to share the other photos through this photo talk.  Since the previous post is more on what’s inside the home of General Aguinaldo, let me share some shots taken OUTSIDE the mansion.

But first THANK YOU to Google for today’s doodle!

The next two photos are my latest shots of the house taken only on March of this year while I’m doing my Vicita Iglesia in the area of Cavite Philippines.  These two photos were taken while I’m on a speeding vehicle.

The next set of photos were taken together with the set of photos from my last year’s post.  They are all taken OUTSIDE the house.

THE HOUSE OF AGUINALDO

This house is built in the year 1849.  This is also the house where General Emilio Aguinaldo was born on March 22, 1869.  In the balcony facing the main road is where General Aguinaldo declared the Philippine Independence on June 12, 1898.  This house was endorse to the Philippine government in dedication to those who fought for independence.  General Emilio Aguinaldo is buried here on February 16, 1964.

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
