Pahiyas Festival 2015

Last May 15, we went to Lucban, Quezon for Pahiyas Festival. We didn’t explore the place much because we just stayed for almost 3 hours. I thought we will witness the grand parade but need to leave the place as soon as possible. My sister planned was to be there for a short time because she has another place to visit that day.Oh well, she has the car, hahah!

The time wasn’t enough but good thing we experienced Pahiyas Festival even for a short time. Lucban, Quezon is near to our place I think about 30 minutes from Lucena but we don’t really visit the place during Pahiyas. So it’s good thing to see the festival this year. There were many people attended the festival. I saw many foreigners enjoying the festival and fellow Filipinos from other places.

Here are some photos I have taken at Lucban, Quezon Pahiyas Festival 2015

Lucban, Quezon blessed with falls and different resorts

There are different resorts in Lucban, Quezon that you can visit and enjoy. Mainly, because it is located near in Mount Banahaw so they are blessed to have number of falls and blooming resorts business.

Going back to Lucena from our trip to Liliw, Laguna I’ve seen these people who are enjoying in the river. The place is located in Lucban, Quezon but sorry I can’t provide the actual place. I just took the photo while we are passing by the place. I learned that you need to pay for only 10 pesos to enjoy the place. The blue and pink small houses are actually the cottages. My brother said the water here is so cold and sometimes you can’t stay in the water for longer hours if you can’t beat the coldness of the water. I guess the water comes from Mount Banahaw.

I realized the true meaning of happiness upon looking to these people. To other people visiting other places and paying for expensive accommodation will find their true happiness. For me, I just appreciated the true happiness is not the cost of accommodation so whether expensive or not the important is how you enjoy the place and the experience.

Kamay ni Hesus, Lucban Quezon

Last Sunday we attended mass in Lucban, Quezon. Then after we visited Kamay ni Hesus (Hand of Jesus) Healing Center. It is a Spiritual Side Trip located in Lucban, Quezon Province. The Holy place is situated at the slopes of Mt. Banahaw. It was built around 2002 by the Kamay ni Hesus Ministry Foundation, Inc. Established by well-known faith healer Rev. Fr.
