Visita Iglesia 2017

Like in the past years, the Lenten Season again brought me around the city of Manila to visit 14 churches.  I didn’t deviate much from my Visita Iglesia last year, but I did it this year on a Good Friday.

Visita Iglesia 2016

Visiting multiple churches during Holy Week, also known as Visita Iglesia, had become a tradition of mine for the last few years and this year I had the chance to revisit some of the most beautiful and revered churches in the country.  Here are the 14 churches I had visited this Lenten season.

Visita Iglesia 2013

Like many Filipinos, I commemorated this year’s Holy Week with a visit to various churches.  I realized that I wasn’t able to do this last year, so this year it’s a must that I outdo the shortcomings of the previous year.

A Night at the Fort

Thursday, August12, 2010.  After four consecutive crazy days of overtime at the office this creature needed a break.  Yes, sitting down in front of a computer for hours on end is tiring especially if your brain does all the toiling.  After calling it a day I figured, “it’s a nice night to run.”  Of course I’d also need the approval of one of the stakeholders—the weather.

From the office I headed off to the gym and upon leaving our building, to my surprise the sky was clear.  Upon arriving at the gym I was horrified with what I saw—tons of people!  In fact all the lockers were occupied—the signs cannot be clearer: get out and run!

As part of old Thursday night habit I ran from Ortigas Center (starting in front of San Miguel compound) to Bonifacio Global City—my favorite running spot in the Metro that I haven’t been to in quite a while.  I used to be in BGC at least twice a week: Thursdays for Nike Running Clinic and eventually easy runs from the office, and Sundays for races.  Recently I can be away for months on end!  Each time I do I always see something new, kind of makes me wonder if BGC’s development gets a boost while I’m away!

Typical Thursdays route: Ortigas Center to Bonifacio High Street via EDSA - Kalayaan - 32nd

The MIRACLE isn’t that I finished.  The miracle is that I had the COURAGE to START
