Advance Happy Easter!... I'm Off to Cagayan Valley
I'm thankful that I live in a Catholic country so today is the last day of the workweek :) I love the Lenten break because it is the time when the population of Metro Manila nearly goes down more than 50% as throngs of families, couples and individuals head for the provinces or abroad. Everybody is in vacation mode. As for me and the rest of my 20+ Manila-based relatives, it would be a family reunion in the small town of Angadanan, Isabela.
I'm schooled throughout my student life in a Catholic school and a Catholic university so it is in my blood that I know that this season is a time of reflection and giving thanks to Jesus Christ for what he has done for the whole humankind. I'm glad that eventhough our family is on vacation we never forget to pass by churches for the traditional "visita iglesia" and hear mass during the Holy Week.
To all my Christian readers: Have a meaningful Holy Week and advance Happy Easter.
