Betrayal of Jesus
Betrayal of Jesus 

     Every Holy week, in the observance of Catholic religious activities in the Philippines, some churches are holding a Lenten procession which starts at 7:00 in the evening of Good Friday from the Church and ends at the Church.   The procession has carriages with statues of Jesus Christ and other biblical icons which depicts the story of Jesus’ crucifixion.  The number of carriages varies in every Church because it depends on its community on how many families or organization has their own and who has enlisted to join the procession.

Revisiting Nueva Vizcaya my mother's hometown

A blast from the past – Salinas Salt Spring


                After so many years I came back.  I could no longer recall what year when I last visited this humble province where my mother roots are from.  My last recount of this place was when I was still in college, back then when social media and blogging was obscure. The last exploration we had with my parents and siblings was when we climbed the Salinas Salt Spring in Bambang, which was the famous tourist spot of Nueva Vizcaya when it was still alive, it died after the 1990 earthquake.  So regretful  that I have never seen it’s clear salt spring that pours out on top of the white hill.  It was the salt spring that made the hill white.  My mother, who grew up in that province could testify how beautiful this was once before, she said that even from afar the luminous white tip of the hill can be seen, which made it stand out from the rest of its neighboring mountains.
