Repost: Sto Nino de Bustos Church: Art by my Kuya Lito SJ

Standard

A repost from August 23 2010 entry… sharing again my Kuya’s Art…

From my Kuya Lito whom I am getting a lot of inspiration and advise and words of wisdom: Like..

“Its alright to start late… think of Vincent Van Gogh…” (about never give up on your dreams and taking action)

“Jump the cliff… you just build your wings on your way down”  (about taking courage on big decisions to make)

August 2010 post:

Just want to share the painting of my brother inspired by my photo of Sto Nino de Bustos Church at Bustos Bulacan:

Lito’s Abstract Horizon

Going back to art is not too late for me, I guess. Creativity needs to be tapped and practiced… I believe, there is no such thing as creativity in ideas… only in execution.

Summer Weekend at 8 Waves Waterpark

Standard

Late post: it happened May 27, 2012
Before we end the summer vacation, we have to have meaningful, fun-filled getaway together as family. Since taking the whole family to Bohol is quite to costly (i have good-for-2 free vacation to Bohol, but bringing the kids along is a big chunk in budget), so we decided to have a family overnight getaway at 8 Waves Waterpark and Resort, a nice place in Bulacan too. So we packed our bag (luggage!) and bought some food, and got a room in their hotel (thanks for the discount, we are supplying the souvenir pillows in their resort).

We had a great time together…!! The first time of us 5 (only), together in overnight trip…

Visita Iglesia 2011

Standard

We had our traditional visita iglesia with “cousinhood” and 3rd generation anakis… we have targeted the 14 chapels of barangay of Bulacan, Bulacan. Although we had planned to see the other side of Bulacan and their churches this year, but we have decided not to take long trips but rather take the “walk” to 14 barangays of our very own town. What we’ll “saved” on gas and picnic-food will go to our charity deeds at Phil Children’s Mission at Burol… Anyway, God is everywhere naman to pray to… besides it’s the substance of our “passion” and sacrifices that matter. This time, I have offered my prayers (with different theme) on every chapel, as follows:

1. Taliptip – Repentance and thanksgiving
2. Perez- wish for my Parents and payer for long life
3. Bambang – prayer for the beloved departed ones
4. Sta Ines – prayers for the needy and those I could reach to help
5. Sta. Ana – prayers for my Kids
6. Bagumbayan – prayers for my famiy life and papi
7. Immaculada Concepcion – wish for me and my career
8. San Jose – prayer for my business ventures
9. San Nicolas – guidance for my financial perspective
10. Cupang – blessing for my people and my “leadership”
11. Pitpitan – blessings for my adventurous spirit
12. San Francisco – blessings of my kins
13. Balubad – prayers for my self development and enhancement
14. Matungao – me and my spiritual aspect

Visita Iglesia @ Bulacan

Standard

Holy Week next week and we’ll have to repent and meditate for our souls’ sake…. This is the time (for me personally) to “touch-base” again with my spirituality. I know that it might seem “seasonal” but it’s really my time of year to reflect and pray (more than as usual)….
Also, we started last year with my cousins the Visita Iglesia of 14 churches. We did it last year from Bulacan to Pampanga, with last leg to Manaoag Pangasinan. We travelled in 3 cars on Goof Friday, with few “aberya” along the way. This year we plan to do it on Holy Thursday, and I suggest we’ll do it in Bulacan Province.

So, we have to plot the route to these beautiful, historical churches: (hey, cousins, help me plot it, I don’t know the way!)

Parish Church of the Immaculate Conception (Malolos Church)
Parish Church of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (Barasoain Malolos)
