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.
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.
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.
This week was extremely busy for me (pardon me if I wasn’t able to leave any comments) but I was so happy that it ended with a high note…. Manny Pacquiao once again gave us a reason to be proud. Congratulations Congressman Pacquiao!
Anyway, the highlight of the weekend was a tree planting activity sponsored by Lotte, the makers of Koala’s March and Xylitol and in cooperation with ABS-CBN Foundation. The tree planting activity was held at the La Mesa Eco Park. My son’s school was invited to be part of this event and I gladly accompanied him. Whenever we get invited an activity like this, I always make it a point to join. This is because I want to raise awareness regarding the importance of saving the environment.
Lotte General Manager, Mr. Gerry Francia and his son headed the ceremonial tree planting activity while a representative from ABS-CBN Foundation taught us the technique on how successfully plant a tree. Lotte’s cuddly mascot was also there to witness the event.
Although the kids were not able to really plant a “real tree” because it is off-planting season, they were only allowed to plant a seedling.
Our boys were so excited to plant …
My boy busy putting in the soil …
Now, proud of his achievement.
I am so proud of my boy! We went home with all the dirt on our shoes and smelling like sweat… but it was all worth it.
I hope that you all had time to recharge this weekend.
Coping up with Project 365 is really a challenge. But I am not about to give up. Although, I cannot take a photo a day, I still take shots whenever I can. Like these batch of photos, they are mostly taken during the day we visited the playground at Eton Centris Walk.
196/365 Want a Coke Cherry? We chanced upon this while doing our grocery at S&R. Hubs who is a coke addict does not like the taste. So it was me and the kids who drank this, he’ll stick with the regular Coke.
197/365 Monkey Bar
198/365 Red Swing
199/365 Want to climb?
These photos were taken last summer during our exhilarating escapade at Subic Tree Top Adventure.
Here’s my son hanging as he was rappelling down a 60-foot tree.
And this is my daughter hanging as she was about to rappel down.
Last Saturday, we decided to drop by Centris Walk and check out what stores are already open. To my delight, my favorite Frozen Yogurt store, Tutti Frutti, is already open. We asked Hubs to drop us off there while he is in a meeting.
We discovered that they placed a small playground in the middle. Sadly for my daughter and his friends they could only sit on the slide for a pose. Since the guards were strict on the age limit, only kids ages 5-12 are allowed.
So it was only my lil’ boy (who is not so little anymore) who enjoyed the playground.
He even rode the carousel. Look at him enjoying the ride even though he’s quite big for it. I’m savoring this moment while he still feels like a child cause soon I know he’ll find this too childish.
After that very enjoyable afternoon, the kids gladly accompanied me to do the weekly grocery.
Weekends are really something I look forward to especially when I spend it with my kids. No matter what we do, even if we just stay at home, it’s the time together that I find very fulfilling. It’s priceless.
What about you? How did your weekend go? I hope you also enjoyed your weekend. Share it with us….
