PHOTOHUNT : SYMBOLIC
Magellan’s Cross is located in Magallanes street, Cebu City. It is housed beside the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño church. A historical landmark not only for Cebu City but for the Philippines. It was planted in the year 1521 by Ferdinand Magellan, a Portugese navigator who worked for the King of Spain in search of the Spice Island.
It symbolizes the propagation of the Roman Catholic faith in Cebu. When Magellan and his crew arrived in the island they were greeted by the local natives led by Rajah Humabon. They befriended him and consequently accepted Christianity and was baptized accordingly.
Some people say she’s “Mini Me”… some are amazed when I introduced her as my daughter, cause they say were so much alike, like sisters, LOL!! And vise versa, her friends will tell her that we’re like twins. Well, I guess like mother, like daughter.
However, my family will always be my first priority, especially my kids, they are the reason why we are working hard. So despite the toxic schedule, I still found the time to bond with my family as I brought them along this Sunday to do my errands. And we even had time to pass by SIDCOR Sunday Market, now located at the ETON Centris Walk.
I have been curious to see what SIDCOR Sunday Market has to offer since I can always see Centris Walk’s parking space jampacked every Sunday morning. As I walked, I realized how Filipinos are so fond of tiangges or flea markets.
The SIDCOR market offers a wide variety of products. I guess this replaces the “market day” for most of the shoppers there.
You can find fresh seafoods….
Fruits and vegetables…
Household Furnishing and Accessories
and even plants.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: It is with deep regret that I had to close down Pixelbug Weekend. As much as I want to share more photos of our weekends, my crazy and busy schedule makes it very impossible for me to do so. THIS SHALL BE MY LAST POST FOR PBW and I am so sad. I shall miss posting and of course, all of you. We shall always be connected through this big virtual world. Have a great week to all of you!
It was Saturday morning when I decided to tag along with my hubby as he is scheduled to play golf in Intramuros. I went not because I wanted to play golf but I wanted to bring the kids to Intramuros and fire up my passion for photography.
Yes, it was not only a walk back time with lessons in Philippine History but it was a photo shoot with my fave subjects … my children. Here are some of the shots I took. The photographer wannabe strikes again! Hope you enjoy.
The kids had a great time and of course, I was able to practice my photography skills once again. I am looking forward to a lot more trips like these. Thanks and I hope you enjoyed your weekend too.
Sunday Night we’re back at ETON Centris Walk for a meeting… another business opportunity (crossing fingers)
I have always wanted to see Centris at Night…. I am curious at how those constellations look and I was not disappointed. They’re lovely at night.
My son was glad to be my model.
Even doing the pose I asked him to…
This weekend was another busy one for me and I am just thankful to start the year with a lot of activities. I hope you all had fun this weekend.
This linky list is now closed.
Ay, ang tagal na nang huli akong sumali sa Litratong Pinoy. New Year na kaya sisikapin kong maging aktibo muli.
Heto ang aking lahok para sa tema ngayon na lata. Nakakahiya man aminin pero ito ay isang lata na pilit kong iniiwasan pero hindi talaga makaiwas lalo na kung ang asawa mo ay “addict” din sa Coke. sa totoo lang, sa asawa ko nakuha ang kahiligan ko sa “softdrinks” kaya lang ako ngayon Coke Zero samantalang siya ay talagang regular Coke ang gusto.
Siya nga pala hindi ito “paid advertisement”, talaga lamang “addict” ako sa Coke. Hahaha!
(It’s been a while since I last joined Litratong Pinoy and since it’s New Year, it’s a new start. I will try my best to be active once again.
Here’s my entry for the week which has “can” for its theme. Although it’s quite embarrassing to admit but a can of Coke is one thing I have been avoiding but have failed to do so. How can you? If your husband is also addicted to the drink. Honestly, hubs was the one who really got me into drinking Coke. However, nowadays I drink Coke Zero and he still insists on having a Coke regular.
By the way, this is not a paid advertisement. This just shows how addicted I am to Coke. Hahaha.)
First off, I want to greet everyone a Happy New Year! The holidays brought a lot of craziness in my schedule — but good kind of crazy! The kind that gets you that gives you time to bond with your family and friends… and I am grateful for those times (even though I cannot be online that much). It’s what makes me look forward for the Christmas season.
This weekend was a spillover from the Holiday schedule. It was a time to bond with our employees. We decided to treat them to a day at the amusement park together with my children.
The kids had a blast with those crazy rides..
I am just so glad that they their “Ates” and their “Kuya” (our driver) who were brave enough to accompany them, cause I sure am not!
There were a lot of things to be thankful for in the year 2010 and one of those is the blessing of trustworthy employees. This is just one way of giving back the blessings. They all enjoyed and it was nice to see them having a blast.
I hope you all had a nice start of the year and I’ll see you all next weekend.
It’s very rare that my husband initiates an in invitation to go to the mall especially on a weekend and it’s usually a spontaneous invite, that’s why when he does, we should grab the opportunity. Who wouldn’t? An opportunity to shop courtesy of his budget…LOL!
After mass last Sunday (even tough I know there’ll lots of people in the mall), we headed out to Podium to have the boy’s hair cut and shop. That’s my boy with his big smile after buying a gift for their Yaya (househelp).
Of course, my daughter was the one who chose the gift….
That’s hubby checking out some architectural books at NBS.
And since we’re already there, we decided to watch TRON. Interesting movie but not quite my type.
Note: Pixelbug Weekend will be on Holiday Break starting next week. We’ll get back to posting our weekend next year January 10, 2011. So from my family to yours, I would like to greet each and every one a blessed Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. I wish you enjoy the rest of the Holiday season. God bless!
