Hello! It’s been months of hiatus, and I didn’t even finish the #TINQ30 project I started last year before leaving the Inquirer, and before ending 2017. Though I continued it through my Instagram stories for 30 days, I hardly found the time to make a blog post for it, due to the holiday seasons and busy schedule while I was rendering my 30 days.
Anyway, though it’s already few months late, let me still greet you a HAPPY NEW YEAR! I have also turned 25 this year — oh yes, my silver year, that’s why I am making this blog post to officially launch my 2018 Project 365:
Errol and I were supposed to have a Davao getaway last week but my parents, still being in the old school era, didn’t allow me to go since there were only the two of us. As the obedient daughter, of course I didn’t come. Errol still went and I’ve asked him to take lots of photos and send them to me while he went solo backpacking, which he did. 🙂
During the Holy Week vacation, I’ve had a quick bonding with nature without going too far from where I live.
On Holy Thursday, we went to Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban, Quezonfor our Visita Iglesia. We left Cavite at around 3:30AM, and we reached Kamay ni Hesus at around 7AM. It was already a long line of devotees and Catholic visitors all the way up to the giant image of “The Resurrection.”
We went home right after.
The next day, Good Friday, we’ve had our Station of the Cross at St. Jerome Emiliani Church near Alabang Town Center.
We then decided to have a quick road trip along Las Pinas to Cavitex all the way to Ternate, Cavite. We reached Kaybiang Tunnel, the boundary of Ternate, Cavite and Nasugbu, Batangas.
We also reached Caylabne Bay Resort, though we didn’t actually get into the resort itself.
It was a great joyride, being this close to nature, embracing its beauty. City life is nice, but nothing compares to the life in the countryside.
