All Saints’ Day 2012

After weeks of absence from blogland, I’m back again.  I can’t believe it’s already November!  How time flies so fast!  We are enjoying a long weekend now and although we wanted to spend the 4day holiday on an out of town journey, we never could and never would disregard our departed loved ones on All Saints’ Day.  Thus, we started off our Cemetery hopping ritual yesterday in Holy Redeemer Columbary where my brother's ash is interred, then to my FIL’s grave in Libingan ng mga Bayani in Fort Bonifacio until early evening and finish off today in Holy Cross Memorial Park where my parents are laid to rest.

'Twas a hectic two day observance of All Saints' Day for us. Glad it is still a holiday on the next two days.  

Hope you too had a good time observing the day for our departed loved ones..  Stay well and be happy!

it's so nice to hear from you once again. well all saint's day was spent at my wife's hometown in Pangil, Laguna.

we just went home today. left laguna at past 4 AM, had breakfast in Sucat, visited my father at Manila Memorial Park, attended mass and did the grocery at shopwise. late in the afternoon, we went to the heritage park to visit my eldest sister and her husband, who lie there side by side.

well that's it. just a reminder, my birthday is on the 13th and my little angel is on the 29th, hahaha
