Magellan's Cross, Symbol of Christianity in Cebu

Magellan's cross is certainly a tourist attraction in Cebu. It is housed in a small chapel (?) a few meters away from the Basilica del Sto. Nino. We went there on a Sunday (06 June 2010), so go imagine how crowded it was.

Benedictine Retreat House, Digos City, Davao del Sur

When we were in Davao, we went to Kiagot where most of our relatives are. Reunion, yes. ;)
Before waiting for people to arrive, we decided to go to Benedictine. Ayaw naman namin masunog at mangitim lang habang naghihintay, kailangan kahit papano may mapala.

I was informed that my Lolo (actually not really my Lolo. Brother of my maternal Lolo, that is) was the former caretaker of the Benedictine farm in Digos City, Davao del Sur. When the monastery was built in the year 1981, a portion of the vast land was given to my Lolo. Kaya pala anlapit lang ng residences ng mga Tito&Titas ko dun. :D

So there. We went there.......and I fell in love with the place.

Here are the pictures:


Inside. Check out the hanging light fixtures.

Inside. Very simple.

Inside. Very few statues, I must say. They're keeping it simple I guess.

Outside. Beautiful landscape.

Outside. Parking Area.

I'm inlove. :D

Davao during the Lent

For lent, our family went to Davao to finally meet my maternal relatives.

We departed Manila Wednesday, 31 April, afternoon. Medyo pagod coz we all came from the office then haharapin namin ang almost 2hr flight MNL-DVO. Well, nothing interesting happened naman that day. Aside from this picture that made my day.
Local version po ata ito. 

01 April 2010 | We went to Lake Agco in Kidapawan City, although I am not sure where exactly. I refuse to Google it coz I'm trying to remember. Haha. Lame. :D Mud Pack, Jacuzzi, steam bath, Sulfur inhalation, enjoying the falls, Good Times.
Lake Agco Sign . Third degree burn, anyone? . Falls

02 April 2010| We went to Kiagot where most of our relatives were. Usap usap, kain kain, pasyal pasyal. Went to Benedictine Retreat House (which deserves its own blog post), and was super amazed. Ganda lang eh! Can I just say that the Binignit in Kiagot is the yummiessssssssssttttttttttttt? Sa sobrang sarap nga, nakalimutan ko to take a picture of it. Nonetheless, I have this. Hahahahaha. At least meron. :D
Binignit in the making
After Kiagot, Davao City bound na kami. We went to the Philippine Eagle Center. Ang iingay ng mga ibon. Mas maingay pa sa amin. :| 

03 April 2010 | Island City of Samal. We stayed in Blue Jazz Resort. Snorkeling, island hopping, swimming, Jetski-ing, Kayak-ing, Giant Slide-ing, food trippppssssss. :D
