Tree Top Adventure Subic

I have never been a fan of heights. Although I can be in high places with minimum fuss, let's just say that my knees start to shake when I looking straight down to the ground from the window or the edge of a tall building. Such was the fear I had to overcome when I and the boys went to Tree Top Adventure in Subic, Zambales.

Look at how tightly I held on for my dear life, hahaha!

Nayong Pilipino sa Clark Expo

We once visited Nayong Pilipino when I was little and that was the one that is found near the Manila International Airport (now Ninoy Aquino International Airport). I vividly remember running around the park and being amazed at how a miniature Mayon Volcano "sprouted" there. I'm happy to visit Nayong Pilipino once more but, this time, it's Nayong Pilipino sa Clark Expo which is located at the Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga.

Like its predecessor in Manila, Nayong Pilipino (Philippine Village) sa Clark Expo features bits and pieces of Philippine heritage and culture in its three-hectare property. It's actually a good place to learn more about Philippine history which is perfect for kids. the place is divided into the Pre-Colonial Plaza and the Colonial Plaza.

St. Pio Chapel, a holy sanctuary in the city

I have seen the signage of the St. Pio Center so many times on our trips to Quezon City via C-5. I often tell the boys that we need to visit the place and at least hear Mass at St. Pio Chapel one Sunday. After all, Rap's Franciscan Catholic school is run by the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin, of which Padre Pio was part of.

Church goers wearing sleeveless shirts and short pants are given sarongs like in Baclayon Church in Bohol.

Last Sunday turned out to be a special day of prayer for me as the Gospel was about Jesus' ministry of healing. Honestly, I was there to pray for healing not only for myself but for my parents, as well.
