Philippines: Manaoag Church (Our Lady of Manaoag), Pangasinan

Once again, we visited this church. It is a 4 hour drive away Manila and we still love going to this place. My family always love to go this church because the church is big and solemn. You will find peace in praying and the place is spacious. This church although always busy is always visited by lots of Filipino because we know that Our Lady of Manaoag will grant our prayers. The vicinity is also full of cottages where you and your family can rest from the long travel and do some picnics.

Philippines: Antipolo

Antipolo,  25kms away Manila a 2 hour drive away plus traffic. hehe…

Antipolo is one of our favorite spots to visit. My dad usually bring us all the time in Antipolo because of the Antipolo Cathedral. The cathedral is usually known for everyone who is going on a journey, it is Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage who protects us while traveling. We believe that when we go pray here, our travel will be safe and as always I do believe in it. I have never had a problem with traveling (knock, knock on the wood)…

Antipolo is not only known for the Cathedral but also known to have a nice view of Manila due its high elevation. The temperature is a bit cooler and you can see the metropolis of Metro Manila. I also love the cashew nuts and the suman “rice cakes” and other goodies that they have there.

Antipolo have lots of nice tasty restaurants with an overwhelming view of the busy city life in Manila. It is nice to stop and just stare at the lights with a cool breeze of air.
