Prinza Dam

September 27, 2011

The Prinza Dam is a Spanish Era made Dam located in the heart of the town of General Trias. It was said to be built within the 18th to 19th Century which stops the water from the Upland Parts of Southern Tagalog and especially the Laguna de Bay Area. Though today, the dam is not very functional as a real dam but it still is strong enough to guard of water from overflowing.

During the Typhoon season, this dam does overflow just like the photo shown above. But during the Hot Summer days, the river bed turns dry.Sadly, some vandals especially the once left during the last elections did remove some of the beauty and serenity that the dam creates and gives the people passing by but most of us still thinks its a great sight to see.

Today, Typhoon Pedring caused a big casualty to the Country with its strength of 130 - 150 kph and speed of approximately 20 kph. Classes are suspended as it sent out inches and inches of flood and devastating winds. Even the Town of Noveleta here in Cavite did not get away as they declared themselves in the State of Calamity. Please Pray for the Philippines and all the Filipinos who are still suffering from the Typhoon. God Bless us all.

Happy Birthday Mama Mary

September 8, 2011 - Happy Birthday Mama Mary

The Philippines and the whole world is Celebrating the Feast of the Birth of our Mama Mary! You have always been there for everyone since Jesus gave you to us from His cross. We will always be grateful and forever be thankful for the Love you give unconditionally. You will always be what a Mother is defined to be.

Continue praying for us and looking upon us! Let me share everyone my Favorite Song about Mama Mary, Birheng Maria, Tala sa Umaga (Virgin Mary, Star of the Morning)

Birheng Maria, Tala sa Umaga
Noon pa man ay itinangi ka.
Ang 'yong liwanag ang takdang lulupig
Kay Satanas, Tao'y ililigtas

Iyong tunghan, kaming nananambitan
At ang lupang iyong tinapakan
Tulong mo'y ilawit sa'min Maria
Ngayon at sa aming kamatayan

Happy Birthday Mama Mary!

Inside Maragondon Church

September 7, 2011

During my last post about the town of Maragondon, I have featured about the famous Maragondon Church and its reconstruction. And by request of a friend from Eagan Daily Photo, Leif, Here I present everyone the Interior of the Maragondon Church. Whitewash walls surround this magnificent interior that truly creates the feeling and aura of safety and security inside the church.

The Trail inside the church is probably one of the longest in the Province which is one of the reason most weddings are being held here beside the beauty and the historical value of this church. The trusses on the whitewashed ceilings have encrypts of Latin prayers.
