EUTS: everything under the sun

All Stories Revealed Under The Sun

Holy Week 2008

Holy Wednesday:
I was in the office, preparing for a short vacation and preparing myself for the SIMALA visit on the day after….

Maundy Thursday:
I left the office at 6 am and had my way to the South Terminal, searching for a V-Hire together with 7 of my colleagues, classmates and friends…
We left the terminal at around 10 AM

and we arrived at SIMALA, Sibunga Cebu at around 11 AM. And what we had done there? here…..
As we arrived, we entered to its beautiful church,

After that, we had our Lunch (jollibee) outside the Simala’s premises..

Then, at 1 PM we did the station of the Cross in front of the big church, which is a very unforgettable and worth-it experience…

After that, what would everybody expect to do? PICTURE – PICTURE! more pictures at my MULTIPLY – SIMALA Entry

Notes:
These are some of the things i gathered that you needed to know when you got in to the SIMALA Church premises:
1. Shorts and wearing malicious t-shirts and blouses are avoided.
2. When you got inside the Church, Ball Cap is prohibited ( and sadly, i had broke the law..ahehhe)
3. When going to kiss the miraculous BIRHEN SA SIMALA, you need to take off your shoes, slippers or even sandals.

4. This is a sacred place, please respect.
And some of the rules are scattered everywhere in the premises…

Good Friday:
I spent the whole day sleeping to save back my energy. I woke at around 4 pm in the afternoon, and eat the very famous “BINIGNIT”

Black Saturday:
I did shopping for my sari-sari store together with my brother in the morning. And late in the afternoon, i went to SM City Cebu to pay our electricity billings.

Easter Sunday:
I woke up at around 9 AM, did a Sales Audit with my little sari-sari store. After that, chit-chat with my brother and sisters. at 12:00, i prepared myself for office.
