Holy Week 2014

Wednesday | April 16, 2014

Before maundy thursday, I would like to share some of the memorable churches I’ve been to last 2013. First is the “Kamay ni Hesus Healing Shrine”. This church is located in Lucban, Quezon and was founded by Rev. Father Joey Faller. It is a haven where we could feel and experience the presence of our Heavenly Father, God. 

And yes, I’m one of the many who struggled to go up the hill to reach the huge statue of our Lord Jesus Christ. There are life size statues of the 14 stations of the cross on our way up to the 50 foot statue of the ascending Christ. (The third biggest in the world btw!) 

A large “Noah’s Ark” themed rooms and offices. (I’m not sure though. haha!) 

I was really really tired going up and down the steep hill that I didn’t notice the sign board. HAHA!

Moving on with the second church that I’ve been to last year was the Saint John The Baptist Parish at Liliw, Laguna. This church is even older than me, it was founded during 1605. It looks so beautiful despite of being old. 

I wish to visit different churches around the Philippines anytime soon.

Internet Show Asia @ Suntec City

Tuesday | April 15, 2014

For the second day of my first ever Singapore tour, we are scheduled to attend the Internet Show Asia seminar at Suntec City. The convention was all about digital advertising and mobile strategies for business leaders and students. 

The Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibit Centre hall. 

Singapore’s MRT stations are awesome. Very clean with innovated ticket machines. 

After the seminar, we were able to roam around the city. We entered the Plaza Singapura Mall. It’s pretty much like a normal mall for me. 

Later in the afternoon, the rain started to pour. They said that it is normally raining here in Singapore every afternoon. Because of this we decided to stay in our hotel and ordered Mcdonald’s fries and burger. Burgers here are different, their regular burger are extremely huge with a large serving of fries as well. Since we’re all tired, we go to bed early for us to have enough energy for the next day of our tour.

7107 Flavours

Monday | April 14, 2014

7107 Flavours is a Philippines Cuisine located at Raffles Quay, Singapore. We had our lunch here during the first day of our tour. It’s really great seeing lot of Filipinos in this country. 

Very Filipino style.

Complimentary “nilagang baka soup”.

Tada! Lovin’ their Caldereta with matching indian mango and alamang. Yummy!

All in all, service was great, delicious food and friendly staff. I’d surely come back during my next visit.
