Our Holy Week 2012

Friday, April 13, 2012

We have been so much for the past months of 2012 so we really deserve this long vacation. We cannot go to beach or even at pool right now. The wounds my son got from his burn accident are all healed but the marks are still there. The Doctor said the marks should not be exposed to sunlight for at least 6 months. The sunlight can darken the marks making it permanently dark. Ouch!

So no beach which means no swimming. Init pa naman, hay…
We started the Holy week on Palm Sunday. We had our mass at 8:30 in the morning. There were so many people and the weather is so hot that day. Feeling ko nga noon palang nagstart ang summer. After the mass, we decided to go to Baclaran Church. It has been 2 years since the last time we went there, I am still pregnant with Matt I think.
Allan do not want to take the car to Baclaran because since it is Palm Sunday, expected na na matao dun at mahirap pumasok so loob. So we left the car near our office in Caloocan. We rode a jeep then LRT from Monumento to Baclaran.
It was Matt’s first train ride and what is really funny was that everytime na hihinto ang train at sasara ang pinto he will imitate the toot toot toot sound.

Matt was super amazed sa mga nakikita nya sa labas. He said flowers pag nakakakita ng trees na may bulaklak.


Surprisingly, pag baba ng LRT hindi ganun karami and tao to think that it was Sunday and it’s Palm Sunday pa. Here are some of our photos there:

Ayan tatakas na.

See, feeling nya mall ang simbahan.

Kelangan pa talagang kaladkarin. hehe

Ayaw pahawak kay Mama (my MIL)



Whenever we go here, we always light up candles and pray. Natuwa na naman si Matt sa mga kandila.


Then came the much awaited 5-day vacation. We were unsure if we will go to our hometown but then decided at the very last minute na umuwe na nga lang.
We visited our Alma Matter, Central Luzon State University (CLSU). Matt really enjoyed running around the part infront of the Administration building. Dito kami tumatambay noon. We studied here from kindergarten to college, super tagal kaya naming nakulong dito, haha.



Picture agad ang mag-ama.






May fish na sa harap ang Admi.





Bilis ng tumakbo ng Matthew!


He is having so much fun. Hindi kasi sya nakakatakbo ng ganito sa amin e.






Kelangan talaga nakakampay pa ang mga kamay anak? hehe.

Doon daw kay Mommy, unahan. haha!



I super like this one.



At nadapa na nga. hehe..

Pero tayo agad at takbo!


Napagod na ata si Daddy kakahabol.

At ako sitting pretty na taga kuha ng picture, photographer ang drama.


Then, we go to the lagoon...


Dito super naaliw si Matthew.





For the first time, he forgot his mouth. Pinakain nya lahat sa fish.

Buhay pa ang tatlong isda na ito.

Chicken ni Lolo Papa
 Sa kubo sa likod ng bahay nila Daddy, mas presko kasi...






Si Matt sigaw nang sigaw ng Mommy! Mommy!


We went back to Bulacan on Black Saturday para naman makapagpahinga pa kami. Since hinde kami nakapagsimba ng Sunday, pumunta kami ng National Shrine of Divine Mercy ng Monday (buti holiday pa din- Araw ng Kagitingan).


Ang mag-ama sa harap ng falls.

My sister, Fevy with her cute mini-me, Gelai.

So cute, chubby cheeks.


Serious ang mag-ama.

Matt said Jesus but he was afraid to touch Him.


Eto gusto nya kasi may tubig na umaagos.

My sister, Gelai and my dearest mudra.


Parang kelan lang mga bata pa kami, ngayon may sari-sarili na kaming anak.
There it goes. Bakit ba ang bilig ng oras pag bakasyon? Anyways, we have enjoyed the 5-day vacation naman kaya sige okay na nga (napipilitan ba?).


Kayo, how's your vacation?
