Inside the Imus Cathedral

May 24, 2010

It was a very sunny day when we went to the Imus Cathedral at Imus, Cavite. When you get inside the Cathedral, the first thing you will notice is the Dark-Ages France style designs on the upper parts of the walls and the trusses up until the altar. Upon the walls are embossed Latin words which are important to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

The whole of Cavite is under the Diocese of Imus. The Diocese was canonically erected on April 1962. The Imus Cathedral or the Cathedral Parish of Our Lady of the Pillar serves as the seat of the diocese.

In 2011, the Diocese of Imus will celebrate their Golden Jubilee as diocese since their establishment in 1961.

A cozy place ... to DINE

May 23, 2010

Yup Everyone, To Dine! This photo was shot just a few hours ago at Bag of Beans in Tagaytay City. It's a classy restaurant that has different kinds of seats! Some are on the cabana like huts where a small family could fit and they also have these cozy seats where you feel like you are dining on the comforts of your living room! But the best part of it, The food was spectacular!

Next time you passed by Tagaytay, I'm recommending everyone to try Bag of Beans! Your try will make you plan for your next visits!

Lucy in the Sky with a Diamond

May 17, 2010

Photo taken last Night at Baligarden, Bacoor, Cavite at 7:24 in the evening

As you can see, Lucy in the Moon shun her beautiful light with a beautiful Diamond named Venus. It was seen for almost an hour flickering along the sky like a Beautiful Golden Diamond Ring. Everyone was delighted. The view was seen all over the Philippines and neighboring nations on South East Asia.

People have many Superstitions about this Natural Phenomenon but most of those were of Good Luck that the Country will receive especially after the Election Period just this week. Well, I just hope that really is what it meant because our Country really needs it right now.

My First Election is not just Mine

May 10, 2010

It was 7 30 in the morning when we arrived on our Voting Precincts and people are already in line. But I got inside the Precinct at around 9 30 due to the long line and the Lane of the Senior Citizens which is of course, a very good idea so that the elderly will be given priority. Right now, Clustered Precincts are observed due to minimal number of the Machines used. But I am sure with much order, anything can be done tolerably.

By the Way, the 2010 Philippine Presidential Elections, which is held today, is very historical since it is the first time that the COMELEC imposed the Automated Elections, a big leap from the primitive Manual Elections that takes almost 2 weeks or more to gather all the results. But using this new Technology, by Eleven in the Evening later, The results of the Local Elections will be published while the National Positions will be completed by tomorrow.

Right now, a lot of people are still in line due to the poor records checking since that part is still done manually. While the Voting Proper and the counting is fully Automated already and is very efficient! All we have to do right now is pray that this Election will be Peaceful, Accurate and an Honest one! GOD BLESS THE PHILIPPINES!!!

Election 2010

May 9, 2010

The photo above was shot last February 5, 2010 on DLSU-D, my Alma Mater. I'm the one on the Left and together with me is Senator Richard "Dick" Gordon, Presidential Candidate for the May 10 Philippine Elections.

Just like me, Senator Gordon's Roots were Traced from the Historical Province of CAVITE. He was part of the 1971 Constitutional Convention where he was the youngest delegate, still a student he represented the 1st District of Zambales. He became the Mayor of Olongapo City for 3 terms, 1980 - 1993. After that, he established the SBMA or the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority that became one of the Best Economic Zones not just during those times but up until now.

But on 1998, He was forcibly removed by Former President Joseph Estrada (Who was convicted, pardoned and is running AGAIN for the presidency) because of personal issues, one being Richard Gordon as his fierce critic. Then after participating on the second People Power Revolution that led to the impeachment of President Estrada, He was appointed as the New Secretary of Tourism. This is when I truly became a fan of Senator Gordon. I was barely 12 that time but I am very aware of all his works. With his experience with Procter and Gamble and SBMA, He placed the Philippines in the Tourism Map by his WOW Philippines Campaign.

2004 He ran for the Senate and despite the Surveys that placed him 29th during the Pre-elections, He placed 5th in the Final Official Tally garnering more than 12 million votes. The Veteran's Bill, National Tourism Act of 2009 and the Election Automations are just a small part of his records as a Senator.

And when he declared his plans for running as the President. I did not even think twice that I will not just give him my vote but I have been campaigning for him and persuaded almost hundreds to vote for him. Now, I am persuading you! We all have the free right to Suffrage but If you're going to ask me, DICK GORDON deserves all our votes. Votes for the REAL CHANGE that the country needs! All his works are just inspiring much more are his plans for our Nation! He has proven a lot than those stinky Surveys.

To the Filipino People, I assure you, GORDON's Victory will be Triumph for each and every Filipino! I am so excited to regain the respect that our country has lost from the past decades. I even texted him earlier tried if he'll reply since he gave us his number during his visit to our University. And He did, I'm very sure it was him! I'm leaving you all with his words, part of his long reply to my message. This May 10, 2010, Proudly with my head held high, My Vote is for RICHARD "DICK" GORDON!!!

"Steven, i hope that you campaign for me even if im not there. Appreciate your efforts. It's high time we change this country and I welcome your support. Today is the last day of the campaign and we have to work double time. I hope u and your friends can spread the word today. There is a country to be won. Let's win it together. This s Dick Gordon"
