 Nothing could compare to any other trip we had in the past with this one. Who would have thought that a less than 100-km trip away from Manila will surpass all other memorable travels. Because for the first time ever, I had the opportunity to experience with my family the thrill of adventure, the peace of laughter, the openness of conversation, the fleeting passing of time, the freedom of taking shots, the beauty of life, and the richness of the Philippines. We hopped that day on our graying car without knowing where to go, where to stay at night, where to eat dinner, etc--only my sister's GPS to guide us. We were headed North to visit churches, and that's all we knew.

Our first stop is actually the newly-renovated Manila Cathedral at Intramuros but only the day after did they freely open the gates so we can marvel at the creation. We're just in time the next day.

When we got farther North, Bulacan was our first stop. No Bisita Iglesia to the North can be complete without visiting the historical Barasoain Church (Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish) at Malolos, Bulacan. It is the Cradle of Democracy at the East, where the First Philippine Republic officially took post on January 1899. It's probably my third time here but the place never fails to amaze me at every single time.  

(Sorry for the ugly night shots, i need tipod and lens to save my life :3)
