as i browse through the photos, i still can’t believe that these churches have been damaged by the earthquake last October 2013. if i could walk through the walls again, maybe i would try to soak up all of the beautiful imagery i could than just stand there and take pictures. pictures are great but seeing the real thing and being in awe its proportion to your small size — it’s just an awesome feeling and overwhelmingly so.
from the bee farm, we headed to Dauis to visit Dauis Church. what immediately caught my attention was the belfry which had spikes that i associate with european gothic churches. inside, you see a mix of the old and new (albeit a bit tacky). the new paint on the walls didn’t seem to blend quite well with the antique finish of the retablos and altars. still the artwork on the sanctuary ceiling were a sight.

i don’t and do understand. how did maricar reyes come back from the “extremely damaging” video that is Hayden’s doing? some points i have been thinking about the other days.
no, i’m not an entertainment writer in your favorite tabloid but an ordinary person who likes *chismis* and likes to think about these things.
we all know how the videos came about and how the very smart Senator bong revilla wanted to do this expose to make the victims come out. of course, there’s the senate hearing/investigation/waste of money and of course, the two opposing forces — Hayden and Katrina. in between all of this, there was the Brazilian model whose name i never got to know and never heard from ever and there’s maricar reyes.
