Good Friday Road Trip

April 19, 2010



ESCUELA CATOLICA
Wearing J. Crew Blush top, Aero DIY shorts. Floral scarf from grandma. 
Embellisments: F21 sunnies. Accessorize necklace.
Surplus Jacket 

Clockwise from top left: Boljoon graveyard entrance. Escuela Catolica with lola, cousin & aunt. church grounds with parents with uncle showing off his Ed-Hardy-like printed sneaks. Just arrived. Escuela Catolica beside Boljoon Church. Out for a short walk.

 Booljoon Church interior. Big church door leading to the graveyard.

 Nueva Caseres Church situated at the outskirt of Oslob town

 My family marveling at the church's belfry. Eating my fave Siniguelas a.k.a. Spanish Plum.

 My sister striking a pose. Moi with a mouth full of Siniguelas. Haha!

 Bag in perfect chaos; Guess chainlink watch, random gold bangles. Old Navy floral skimmers.

My two brothers. The only carenderia (eatery) that was open; Oslob town proper. Accessories.


 So this is a super late post. I wore this to our Good Friday road trip down south. My sister keeps on saying that this, in our dialect, is pan.os already (panis in Tagalog, stale in English) Haha! But what the heck, I owe it to myself, to this cute top and to our beautiful destination to make this blog entry.

The family made a beeline again to the now infamous Boljoon Church which is situated at the town's center fronting the gorgeous endless blue horizon. The drive was exhilarating as always, an experience my lola (grandma) missed again for she spent the better part of the trip sleeping (just like last year haha!) When we reached the place, I was once again smitten by the beautiful old structure and the warm welcome of the people. I blogged about this before and the experience was pretty much the same as last year. (You can read my 2009 blog here)
The only difference this time is that we went farther down south, to Oslob town proper, the farthest I've ever been to this part Cebu. I am now officially in love with Oslob and I definitely would want to live there someday. As I am writing this, dreams of owning a house on a cliff, overlooking the breathtaking and calming blue sea with a patio that opens up to the world where you can breath in the goodness of nature haunts me day in and day out. One day...

Oh Cebu, I love you. Mi provincia linda.


much love,
Toni

  1. At first I thought you were in Bohol. lol! Road trips are really the best especially when you´re visiting old and beautiful places for the first time.

    Love your Lola´s scarf,the floral shoes and the bangles!

    Missed eating siniguelas with rock salt, the plums in here although are much bigger don´t have that taste which we are used to in there.
