March 21-29’08 Mahal na Araw / Summer Break

Image
21Mar - flight to pinas around 12.40am, arrived in Batangas by 7am. It’s Good Friday but basically dozed on-off for the whole morning till late afternoon…it’s so hot…Went to Wena’s place in the evening for the annual procession. I feel that it’s not what it used to be when I was younger and spending holy week in the province. I remember my ‘mamay’ (lolo) asking us to be still and not to make too much noise during the whole holy week. No TV, no music, no going out, no noise…instead it’s all prayers, pasyon among the olds and that’s it. Today is my first holy week after being out of the country for about 10yrs and it’s not the same anymore. There’s less meaning?? You can only feel that it’s holy week in the church itself. No more pabasa ng pasyon, the kids are watching tv, playing computer games. Even the adults are not the same anymore…I don’t know maybe it’s only me…anyway here are some of the photos taken during procession…





Umiyak si Vince....si Nini hindi takot....

22Mar – even thou…

Another one of those last day....

Yeah, after two years of tenure at Jacobs Singapore, it's time to move again...
It's a good learning curve for me and I have established a lot friendship within the company...
But again it's time for me to move on....

A new start, new environment, new relationship, new stress?? maybe, I'll only know later...

I'll surely miss all the people at JES, such a good company...

Batangueno nga are?? (katawa...)

again from forwarded email, ewan kung maiintindihan ng iba hehehe
