Kamay Ni Jesus

50-foot Statue of Kamay ni Jesus
One of my plans during my vacation is to visit again Kamay Ni Jesus Healing Church and Via Dolorosa Grotto at Lucban, Quezon. I had been at Kamay ni Jesus (Hands of Jesus) last 2010, but that was not a planned trip because I was only invited by my college classmate who is also on vacation to come with her that day.  This time everything went smooth as per the plan and we had a chance to attend the Saturday mass (January 18) at 9:30 am with Rev. Father Joey Faller, the founder of the church. 
Actually, we arrived at 10:30 am at the church on Friday (January 17) and offered our prayers for about 30 minutes.  Unfortunately, rain started to fall when we are about to climb the 310 steps going to the top of the 50-foot statue of Kamay ni Jesus.  Luckily, my companion brought his umbrella and we continued to climb and take pictures as we stop on each life size statues of the 14 station of the cross leading to the statue of Kamay ni Jesus.  We did not mind the rain until we reach the top.  Surprisingly, we are only four people who reached the top. One couple was there taking pictures, me and my companion.  We take a rest for a while with the umbrella protecting us from the rain. We decided to go down after 30 minutes while the rain did not stop.  We ate at one of the restaurant at the vicinity of Kamay ni Jesus Church.  After that, we went to Batis Aramin Resort and Hotel just across the Church for an overnight stay. I would like to share some of the pictures I took during our trip.

The Beauty Within

Vacation time is really a wonderful period wherein you can relax and get away with stress.  Going around the city, the province, to the beach is really enjoyable and exciting.  To see nature at its best is very rewarding and a feast to the eyes. During my visit at SM Mall of Asia, I had a chance to take pictures of the outdoor scene along the baywalk area at the back side of the mall.  This time using my Nikon D5100 18-55 VR Kit Camera.  Although I'm not a professional photographer (still trying to be, hehehe) what I had taken is really breathtaking, in my belief.  Here are some of them.

Bonding With Friends Forever

It's nice to see friends again that had been there for you through all these years. That's why seeing them once again is such a delight and exciting.  We exchanges some stories about our lives for the past year and immensely share our thoughts about our experiences. To make a long story short, we had a wonderful time as we dined together at Gerry's Grill, SM Mall of Asia.  Here are some of our photo op during our get together.

New Shoes for New Year

I bought a new Nike running shoes as a gift to myself this New Year. I believe I deserve to have this one because I want to compensate my hard work and dedication to my job. I choose this Nike Zoom Structure with red check logo on the right side and light blue check logo on the left side. The pair of shoes are so comfortable and a class of its own. The price is quite expensive but its worth the buy. It is so cool and I like the design.

Welcome 2014!

Welcome Year 2014! Another year has gone and a new beginning had just started. I know Year of the Horse is a lucky year for me. Think positive and everything will be alright as long as the energy around you is magnetize by positivity. Think about the good things that will be coming to you in the future. Work hard to have a better life. Most of all, prayers are the best weapon against all odds, because only God is the only one who can answer your prayers.  Give thanks to God for all blessings that will come into your life.
