Multiple Sunday Celebration – Celebrating Kim’s 2nd Birthday In Time With Easter Sunday

Today is Easter Sunday, the day when Christ resurrected from the dead. It’s a multiple celebration day here at our home, celebrating Easter and at the same time celebrating Kim’s, my niece and li’l sis of Kaye, 2nd birthday and also her yaya’s. It’s also the first birthday celebration of Poy, my nephew/inaanak from my cuz, and also to our younger cuz Kristel, who now turned 10. All of them were born on the 23rd but since it’s Black Saturday yesterday, all celebrated their birthdays today. So it’s gonna be eat, eat and eat! Woohoo! Unfortunately for us, we couldn’t be there on our cousin’s celebrations since we’re having our own at home too. Anyway, happy birthday to all who celebrated their birthdays today.

 

Happy Easter to everyone!

Holy Week 2011

Holy week, the time we commemorate the last week of Christ’s life on earth, is also a time of reflection. While others go out on trips and summer hang outs, I just stayed back home, paying homage to what Christ has done to save us. And as a little sacrifice, I cleaned my room, washed all the clothes, no computer and internet browsing until Sunday morning and went on to complete the Prusisyon last Friday. It was the first time to see so many people attended this and my first time to
finished the long walk, well I always went home when the route was getting near our house when I was a kid. Whew it’s tiring but it felt great. A great achievement for me.

 

Though we never did the 14 stations of the cross and Visita Iglesia, me and my cuz went to church for the Easter Vigil and the Salubong. Was surprised a bit that there were less people who attended the Easter Vigil compared to the previous years. But nevertheless, these people showed up and had stayed for 2-3 hours. It was very uplifting indeed.
