Weddings…

I love weddings.. .yeah I know it’s quite unusual for a man to appreciate weddings, the romantic stuffs that come with weddings (too much to handle!)…The financial side of a wedding can actually drive a single man back to his mother’s womb. Did I mention that an average man who’s allergy to commitment can equal that of an asthmatic child to a cat’s fur…will probably sweat a bucket once his significant other starts showing signals of ‘I wanna walk down the aisle’ dreams…

I can’t actually speak for others but I’m a fan of ‘this happens only once in a lifetime‘ mentality when it comes to weddings. Weddings need not be grand or too expensive though, but I really appreciate weddings showing the couple taking the extra mile to prepare a good one… If you can pull-off a nice wedding, somehow you’ve shown signs of readiness to face the challenges married couples encounter in their lives together…

Last weekend, my wife and I had the honor of being invited to the weddings of my office friends…Two weddings in two days…I have to say that the two couples deserve all the best wishes they received…Nice venues… good food…entertainment, lovely brides, dashing grooms!!!etc… Most of all, happiness really radiated from their faces…heaven!

Visita Iglesia on Maundy Thursday

Holy week is a season for sacrifices, reflections and traditions.

Here in our country, aside from the Holy Mass commemorating The Last Supper (with reenactments of the washing of the feet), people on Holy Thursdays participate in Visita Iglesia activities – praying the Stations of the Cross in fourteen different churches (for some – seven churches).

This Holy Thursday, together with my wife and friends, we traversed the cities of Makati, Pasay and Manila for our Visita Iglesia. The experience was tiring but there was no reason to complain, our sacrifice was a small one compared to what others embarked.

Our main purpose was to pray the Stations of the Cross, but I decided to take some sidesteps by bringing my camera along and having some photos/memorabilia of the event.
