THE LUMINOUS CHURCH IN AGDANGAN, QUEZON

The Luminous Church is a glorious attraction that one could see from all around the town of Agdangan, Quezon. It has 150 feet tall. Last week the all member of MSK or Munting Sambayanang Kristyano here in our Subdivision, will go there to visit and to look the beautiful view of the Luminous Church. We start our way of the cross; we are amazed with what we saw inside the Church. Our co-MSK member was touched by the images and statue on each station. And besides the wall and the ceiling are all images happened came from the bible.

There are 14 Stations of the Cross; the first station was started at the 1st floor of the Church. All scenarios on each station make the real thing. We are all heavy feelings in our heart going to every next station. Because the statue of Jesus Christ are look realistic. All of our co-MSK member are very silent and feel the prayer on each station. I really touch and emotional the 13th station when the body of Jesus Christ is taken down from the Cross.

In the 14th station this is the last station I feel that my heart pounds hard when I see Jesus Christ statue. He is looking down at me smiling with arms wide open, it means your Welcome! And I feel that I am in heaven. Sorry, I cannot post the photos because it is not allowed to take pictures inside the Sanctuary. The Church are open to all the people, if you are interested to look the blessed church here is the ways to go there: www.waypoints.ph/route_gen.php?dest=lxgs

The View from the top

The image below is one of the shots that I took while I am on the top of Luminous Church in Agdangan, Quezon. The church has 150feet tall.  When I looked down I saw my red car overwhelmed by the  trees, and then I just took a picture. I like the beauty of the view from the top.  Even the weather is shady, still the green color of trees are lovely.

ISDAAN @ CALAUAN, LAGUNA

Our family has eaten dinner in Isdaan at Calauan, Laguna last Sunday July 15, 2012. This was our first time to visit there. Isdaan is a floating restaurant that has enormous statues all over the place.  It was really beautiful and indeed a unique way of attracting customers and have a one of a kind dining experience. The ambiance was really inviting specially during night-time.  The place is so big and awesome. It feels like you’re in other place outside thePhilippines.  For me this place is such a great place. There are lots of buddha at the place. Anyway about the food was okay, but they were a bit slow at serving out the foods. While waiting for our food to be served, we strolled around the place to take more pictures and seem for more interesting displays to see.

Here are some stunning statues photos.

 

Along the walkway at the side of the main kitchen I saw these outside. This is the way they cook our ordered rice, super cute, (ang liliit ng kaldero 🙂 ).

 

Another attraction is the boat ride and tour around the place for free. As a courtesy of management you give a tip to the boat man for at least Php 20. At the children’s corner, they offer free face painting, free used of bicycle. There’s a lot of famous cartoon and comic’s statues were located at their children’s corner like angry birds, Mickey Mouse, and superman. This is the facade from the waiting area where you could have picture-taking with the life-size statue of the late former President Cory Aquino or former President Erap Estrada, President Obama and his wife.

If you want to release you anger, then they have a Tacsiyapo Wall. For a minimal fee, depending on what you want to throw and break on the wall like the mug it cost for Php 25 each, it’s your chance to shout and be heard!

 

For entertainment, they have man/women serenade you with one song while eating and you need to give Php 20 tip like  the boat man.

We had so much fun and really enjoy the experience 🙂 .

RED TOY CAR

 The photo below is in SM Mall, Wonder Park “the family entertainment center”. This area is favorites of Vince especially when he saw the red car. He almost want to stay, sometimes we consumptive got a 50 pesos equivalent to ten tokens. Every rider here is one token or equivalent for 5 pesos only. I am glad because I see that he really enjoy what he was doing. This red toy car is very attractive and looks seems to be flirting with children.

And you can admire the place, the stunning view of Pagbilao Bay, Pagbilao Power Plant, Pagbilao Grande Island, and Patayan Island with visible white sand beaches from a far. Anyhow, one of the best food served in this celebration are steam capiz in oyster sauce, sinigang na hipon, spyribs, fried chicken, fresh buco juice and  java rice.

Silangang Nayon has hotel rooms available for overnight accommodations, we did not stay here because our home is near  this place. I t’s almost 5 kilometers only from our home. Anyway, it’s just easy to go there Comute to Pagbilao, Quezon: Board Buses to Lucena City either via Lucena Lines, Jam Transit or Jac Liner, it’s better to board one with Dalahican signboard for by its passes by SM City Lucena. In Lucena you transfer to jeepneys going to Pagbilao. Then you just stop in Greenview Hotel and beside of this hotel they have many passengers tricycle going to Silangang Nayon.
