Simala Church in Cebu City

This is my first visit at Simala church located in Sibonga Cebu, and all i can say is “AWESOME PALACE LIKE CHURCH!”. It really does looks like a palace to me; because of its elegant structure, you would think that it looks like a Vatican church >_< .
Anyway, before i went to Cebu, i was already intrigue with this place. That’s why, i really requested to my mom and my sister to pass here and KABOOM! 🙂
We took a ride on a bus from Cebu city to Sibonga (it took us 1 and 1/2 hour to arrive at the entry point) then we ride a skoter all the way up to this majestic church 🙂 wow! the place is very awesome!

Image

Inside the Simala Church is the different statues of the Virgin Mary which also represent different culture 🙂 . i even saw the Virgin Mary wearing a kimono and looks like a Japanese 🙂

Image

I must say that the structure inside the church is very elegant. The wooden brackets amazed me because of its carved design.The altar and its ceiling is very pretty too. look at that! 🙂 moldings inside the church is carved, the ceiling is beautifully hand painted, and the altar where the Virgin Mary is placed covered with a beautiful case painted in gold.Image

This is my letter to Mama Mary. Hope hose Wishes will be grant.Image

SIMALA SHRINE is worth the travel! 🙂 I’m inviting you this experience, you will never regret the long hours of land trip! 🙂 hence, you’ll adore this place! 🙂

I have been very proud of my attempts to photography since I met this cutie-pie. My baby shutter takes amazing photos! My favorite feature is the Smart Settings which needs no adjustments, just press the shutter and voila, Wonderful photo up!

 

Listening: Love Blossom by K. Will

This sweet Korean song reminds me of the beautiful cherry blossom trees in full bloom. Thanks to Lee Min Ho for tweeting it! I could listen to this song the whole day. And I’m no joking because this became a bonding with my younger sister-Orleen who is the one-huge fan of Lee Min Ho.

 

Singing: Phineas and Ferb’s Theme

Hah, summer! And if I were Candace, I would cooperate with my bro’s in finding a good way to spend it. Like maybe building a rocket or fighting a mummy or climbing at the Eiffel tower. Discovering something that doesn’t exist or giving the monkey a shower… surfing tidal waves, creating nanobots and locating… hmmkay will stop now… Frankenstein’s brain!

 

Summer, and I wish it never cease!

Lee Min Ho: My Everything 1st Debut Album Released!

My thoughts on Lee Min Ho’s 1st Debut Album.

Random Venus

Korean Superstar Lee Min Ho released his first debut album on May 24, 2013. This is due to popular demand. The fans had been requesting him to release an album since he started singing on tours and some shows.

Answering to his fans desire, Lee Min Ho released an album entitled My Everything. This didn’t honestly surprise me, because he released singles in the past: My Everything in 20009 and Extreme for Cass 2X Beer Commercial in the same year .

The album contains 7 tracks including the song My Everything. This album is dedicated of course to his fans. JPopAsia said: “The actor’s new album serves as fan service rather than a serious attempt to debut as a singer.” Though it’s more like JUST FOR FANS and not to seriously get into the music industry, Lee Min Ho DIDN’T JUST sing. The actor (now a recording…

JULIAN HOON: A Sudden Death of a fan, a dearly friend, a family.

The early death of this young promising person shocked his Minoz Family. It makes us slip into a depressive mood, it also makes us philosophical making us aware transitory nature of earthly happenings. Though the feeling of attachment does not stay with us for long, it still manages to evoke sensitivity that makes us face to face the reality of our vain pursuits.

Image

I am talking about the death of Julian Eymard Zagada a.k.a JULIAN HOON. A certified Minoz. A 22 year old guy who died last MAy 25, 2013 due to a failure in his  kidney. We  do not accept that  he left among us and in the presence of his family at this very young age.

JULIAN AS A FANBOY:

Anyone turn to forget a fanboy named Julian Hoon. A fan of Lee Min Ho. Seldom resent such men would be proud of being minoz and a fan of Lee Min Ho.

Image

Last November 16, 2012, Lee Min Ho visited the Philippines with the coordination of the best clothing company in the country named BENCH. During his visit, there was an event called THE BENCHSETTER FUN MEET held at the Araneta Coliseum. On the day of the event itself, there was a LOOKALIKE contest which features those fans who looks like Lee Min Ho.  Julian Hoon was one of those selected ones to participate because we can not necessarily just assume that he doesn’t have any similarities with Lee Min Ho, because he has.

Image

He started idolizing Lee Min Ho during the City Hunter, which is also aired in the Philippines. He imitates all the actions, facial expressions and even the pose of Lee Yoon Sung(Lee Min Ho’s character in the tv show).

Image

Ironically some of  the Minoz  have met him already, but me.  I have not even met him in person, though we chat over text, phone call, and video call more often.  I know he’s a good man. He has a big heart. And he is an open-hand person.

Image

JULIAN HOON AS A SPECIAL SOMEONE

Here in the Philippines we have a text clan named MINOZ CLAN PH. Through the clan, Julian and Kate met. And after a month they have developed feelings for each other, should we call it a “MU’ (Mutaual Understaning)? Or a Couple already? Whatever is it between them, I know that they really love each other. We even gave them a love team name. The JUL-KEITH.

There was a time that Julian sent Kate a package. Inside are shirts from BENCH .

Image

Before  Julian sent this package to Kate, she requested that when he sent this to her, she requested him to include even withered petals of a rose, but Julian said: ” SORRY! I AM NOT ROMANTIC.”  He is not a romantic Guy! BUT HE IS A GOOD MAN.

Kate also gave Julian a Polo from BENCH as a gift. In fact his family chose this shirt to wear this in his grave. Image

JULIAN’S DREAM IN VISITING SEOUL, KOREA

Image

He always shares his favorites song the UNSTOPPABLE by Son Han Byul.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uaXtQK9dnM&feature=youtu.be

When he was still alive, he even jested a  request that if he die, he  wanted a song to be tended a his funeral music. That song is SO GOODBYE; a  City Hunter Official Soundtrack.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNRNkEyiRxI&sns=fb

If man were immortal he could be perfectly sure of seeing the day when everything in which he had trusted should betray his trust and in short of coming eventually to hopeless misery he would break down at last, as every good fortune, as every dynasty, as every civilization, In place of this we have death.

Image

We count it a privilege to have developed a friendship with Julian over the past five months. He shared his stories and dreams with me and he shared his gifts with the world.

Julian, you will be dearly missed!

Thank you for your kindness, generosity, and friendship. We  gain hope knowing that you are with God and that we will see you again in heaven one day. You lived your life for Jesus, and now you can enjoy the presence of God.

His body is at the St Anthony Church Bukid Manila.

Julian’s memorial service will be held on Sunday, June 2,2013 .
