Holy Week 2015

Howdy! This is obviously a very late post. Been quite busy, like i always say and admittedly lazy to sort pictures out. Well i'm still lazy so just sharing a few words and pictures of how my Holy Week has been.

I used to go churches near my area before, so this year's Visita Iglesia in Batangas is definitely a whole new experience. The sacred places is very overwhelming and it's quietude is undeniably perfect to reflect on God's love and His purpose for us in this life, other things to mend and a lot of blessings to be thankful for. This happened from the last week of March.  I believe this is commonly done during Maundy Thursday but since we have other plans for the whole Holy Week so we just did it a bit earlier than it should.
Of course, we wouldn't come home without bringing some of these delicacies. My most favorite is the Special Espasol (even when there's nothing really special in it.) But i do remember that time when someone used to bring me espasol every week, that's special effort, i must say. It actually had been less a surprise pasalubong when it become a mandatory food to bring whenever we meet. mehehe. (We didn't talked about it nor asked for it, it just happened that the person brings it for me and then there's goes me expecting it everytime..oh well that was loooooong time ago.)
This happened on Good Friday. Two men were tied and the one in the center was literally nailed on the cross. How painful could that be? Ugh i don't even want to look. -_-

The remaining days of the Holy Week was spent in Mt. Banahaw, Dolores, Quezon. 
Taken along the way. I'm not sure if that is Mt. Banahaw..or maybe Mt. Makiling or just some other mountain. I had been travelling in this place for a hundred times but i still can't figure out which is which with the mountains along the way. Oh just too captivated with the wonderful views that i dont get to see everyday,
Not much crowd. Unlike the past years, this place is fully occupied with different vehicles and tents.
Obviously, that stray dog isn't lost in the woods, looking for food..i guess.
The wonders of nature never fail to fascinate me. I wanted badly to bring home those wild cuties huhu. They're about to run, actually.
 This is my most favorite tree! They say, it's more than a 100 years old. It's so huge and very tall.
This was when we're about to go home. It rained so the ground was damp wet, muddy and a bit slippery. Along the way, my sandals got broken when i accidentally slide down on a mossy rock. (It wasn't because of selfieing haha!) So I had no choice but to walk on barefoot until i reach the nearest store to buy a pair of slippers.  Oh by the way, those plastics were random fruits and vegetables we bought on the small houses at the foot of the mountain.
i always love to take pictures of sky and clouds, This one is my most favorite shot. It makes me happy whenever i see cottoncandyish clouds up above.

So that's all to share. Hope you all had a blessed Holy Week as well!
