HOLY WEEK IN SILENCE (14-18th day)

My family decided to spend the holy week in my grandparent’s province. It is also my time to visit them and offer a prayer personally. Because I wasn’t able to attend their death ceremony, I think this was the best time to pay my respect.

Bacuag is a fifth class municipality in the province of Surigao del Norte, surrounded by mountains, forest, and sea waters. I stayed here for more than a year with my grandparents and returned to the city carrying with a lot of memories. I have loved the place though it was far from the City. The country side is a good place to rest, ponder and enjoy the serenity.

Let’s hit the road!

20 years ago I wrote this prayer as instructed by my grandmother. I was surprised to see it here. It reminds me of her being a prayerful person, that there is nothing impossible in prayers.

Fresh fish and squid cooked only by Vinegar.  One of the best!

Bacuag Parish Church. My favorite place 20 years ago.

Tomorrow will be coming back to the City. I don’t know when I can visit here again.  I will surely miss the place!
