The Santa Cruzan

Each year, during May, in almost every town in the Philippines, there is a Santacruzan. It is a parade commemorating the pilgrimage of Reyna Elena (St. Helena) to Calvary, together with other reynas including Mary Magdalene, in finding Jesus' cross. This Catholic tradition is usually celebrated every 3rd week of May.



Traditionally, the Santacruzan is arranged in this order according to WikiPilipinas:
Methuselah - a bearded old man cooking grains of sand in a pan over fire. He represents the transient of life... the return of all things to ashes and sand.

Aetas - they represent the Filipino pagans before the coming of Christianity.
Reina Mora - represents the dominant religion before Christianity.

New Book: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas by Jules Verne

It's time for me to go back to the classics... I was actually inspired by my son who never gets tired of watching Journey to the Center of the Earth. We have seen Journey to the Mysterious Island and we liked it a lot! I could not understand why I haven't read Jules Verne's book... but, anyway there is still a chance for me to do so. I am starting with Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas that I bought from a book sale last Friday. 

Favorite Photo of the Day: The Bible Bearer

I was a proud mom yesterday. My son was a Bible bearer for a friend's wedding. Although he was having tantrums because he doesn't like to wear his suit, he still walked down the aisle and made friends with other members of the entourage. He was such a darling!

Happiness

Happiness is that moment when you finally say, "Lord, enough please! One more and I'll go bonkers!"

i would not have seen the sun rise and set without that one person who made me who i am today... my mom.

The Avengers

Finally!
After a week of waiting for a day off, I finally had the chance to watch The Avengers with my son, sister and nieces. It was absolutely fantastic! I hope they will launch it in 3D!
Who is your favorite Avenger?
My son and I favors Capt. America while my sister and nieces adore Iron Man. Of course the rest of them were great. Thor is the hottest demigod (I should have watched the movie), Black Widow is bad ass babe, Hulk is adorable despite being green and Hawk Eye is so mysterious. I love all of them!
