Big Pool At D Leonor

So we took their mini cab for us to get to the big pool. I really thought that Faith could not enjoy it there but thank GOD that the pool is not too deep and beside the big pool, there was actually a kiddie pool too. On the 2nd thought the big pool also have a shallow part.  What we enjoyed there  is the slide, it is long and its round but not that long as Blue Jazz had.

I also like the bucket on the top that when it is full, it will pour so hard on the slide going to the pool. Faith would always exclaimed. “Extreme!”

We definitely got wet but we had so much fun!

We did not spend out there for long, it was almost 5 in the afternoon at that time and we don’t have planned to stay out late. Faith was disappointed since she really like to stay for hours there, but I promised her she can get some carousel rides she agreed with me, only to find out that the rides there were busted.

Till next post.

Lady of Lourdes: The 252 Steps

These are the 252 steps in the Lady of Lourdes Grotto in Baguio; the van that we rented took a short cut so we really did not start going up from the very first step. But even so, we still did not went up there, with my youngest daughter who keeps on complaining that she is already tired, how can I get up there.

The pilgrims brave to get to the shrine of the Lady of Lourdes of Grotto, they are offering prayers, sacrifices and devotion.

And since we were not able to reach to the top, we walked on the side and we saw this holy image, we offered a little prayer and took a picture with it.

And here’s me and my daughter, this is already on our way to our van, we just sat here for a moment to rest.

Forty Pesos Picture Taking With The Igorot

So we went ahead after we explore the Strawberry Farm in Baguio, my daughter was already not feeling well, she said that her head was aching. She actually headed in the van before us in the farm, she waited there after we finished exploring the place. When we arrived at the Grotto, she just told me that she would just stay in the van and I and F will just have fun with the 100 steps going up. Oh well, I was not sure if F could make it, she even said if we have to walk in Dagupan that she is tired and we have to ride in a tricycle, oh then let’s see.

On our way there, we saw two old women wearing the native dress. I thought if would take a picture for both of them I only have to pay P10.00 but nope I was wrong. They asked P40.00 for the fee that includes both of them plus we took a picture with them times.

TT # 16: Old Church in Dagupan

One day when we ventured the place as we wait for our kids to finish their screening, I spotted this old church at Calasiao, Dagupan; I immediately took my camera out in my bag and took a picture of the church.

The church is San Pedro y San Pablo de Calasiao, and it is at the same building of the shrine of Senor Divino Tesoro. It was build 1933-1934.

Calasiao is where the quarter of my daughter was located. If you are from Dagupan proper downtown, you can just take a Jeepney and it will send you to the town hall of Calasiao where the San Pedro y San Pable de Calasiao is situated.

Calasiao was derived from the native word kalasian, which means a place where the lightning frequently occurs. From the root word lasi, means lightning. The Spaniards called the place “Lugar de Rayos“, which is a literal Spanish translation of the word Kalasian.
