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.

heto na… heto na… sana huwag na ma-udlot! 😀
i remember blogging an “intro” to our Malaysia-Singapore trip a few years back but never actually followed-up on the post. nakaka-inis nga eh. i told myself i would document it via pictures and blog — para naman maalala ko experiences ko dun. sadly, i never got to blogging about it… sayang. pero i’m trying to make up for it with this one! maybe i-digest ko siya into little pieces — one entry each for the places we’ve been para hindi naman parang napaka-general na overview lang meron. or maybe i could do that part with this first entry.
or not. basta. blog lang ng blog! 🙂
i’m a couch potato. even if i love sight-seeing, i never get myself off the proverbial couch and book flights to places i’ve never been to. i’m more of a come-what-may kind of traveler. if work requires me to go to Tacloban, then i’ll go. if friends plan to travel to SG and invite me, i’d go if i had the money. but i usually wouldn’t book a flight and plan things by myself… and that’s when i find A (yes, she blogs now, too!) to be a blessing. 😀 teehee
she booked this trip way back in May and said this would be some sort of delayed anniversary gift for ourselves. and because she has always wanted to give her dad the chance to ride an airplane at least once in his life, we brought him as well as my MIL with us.
