Weekend Story: Suits Marathon + St. Pio Shrine in Sto. Tomas, Batangas

Last weekend was spent in Bacoor and Manila, as usual. We were already in Bacoor as early as Friday night this time, though. On Saturday morning, the hubby and I watched several episodes of Suits, a US TV series about this genius albeit fake lawyer Mike Ross. We just love it, from the story to the stellar cast. Somehow, it reminds me of my childhood dream of being a lawyer. If you want to know how the US justice system works and how law firms do their business, then this is the show for you. I don’t know with you but I always have a great time watching Mike Ross and Harvey Specter (Ross’s boss) work together on a case, with Mike Ross almost always figuring out something to win it. Their everyday banter is cute, too. We can’t wait to get to the final season (Season 7)!

The hubby and I also went out on Saturday night. Chosen place was Alabang Town Center. We initially wanted to watch a movie but decided against it because the hubby remembered we had to sleep early for our trip to St. Pio Shrine in Batangas the next day. On Sunday morning, we drove to Sto. Tomas, Batangas to hear the 8:30AM mass at St. Pio Shrine. A lot has changed on the place. There are now ample parking spaces and new structures in the complex. The hubby also noticed that they use solar power which was great. From the shrine, we drove straight to my in-laws’ place in Manila, rested a bit, and prepared for the new work week.

Happy Palm Sunday and the San Miguel Community Procession

We started our Sunday morning earlier than usual today. I, along with the boyfriend’s family, joined in the community procession for Palm Sunday. We walked from the plaza all the way to San Miguel Shrine (our church). We passed thru several streets and alleys on our way to the church. Each of us were holding our blessed palaspas (decorative palm fronds). We enjoyed walking while chanting out the Osana song. The community procession was actually a reenactment of a scene in the holy bible where Jesus Christ, the son of God, walked down from the Mount of Olives and were welcomed by the people.

As we passed thru the houses, people looked out their windows and joined us in the singing. It was my first time to passed thru those alleys and I couldn’t help but admire the beautiful houses nestled in there. Most of them had lovely terraces and cool home address signs. They even had plenty of potted plants outside that added aesthetic appeal to their places of residence.
