QUIAPO: Black Nazarene Feast


QUIAPO: Black Nazarene Feast

Quiapo Church is home to Black Nazarene, a much-venerated statue of Jesus Christ which many Filipinos believe has miraculous attributes.

Faith and action come hand and hand. It may be chaotic but no one could stop the devotees of the Black Nazarene from attending its feast day celebration. 12 million devotees are expected to flock to Quiapo Church and around its streets today.

The annual procession always draws a huge number of devotees who believe that the image has performed many miracles. Msgr. Ignacio, rector and parish priest of Quiapo Church, advised pregnant women, small children, the elderly, and the disabled “not to attend the procession or to distance themselves from the crowd for safety reasons.”
Year after year, Filipinos coming from different provinces and abroad, together with curious foreigners, join the traditional procession. If you want to join the celebration today, expect a sea of devotees carrying the statue of Poong Itim na Nazareno (Black Nazarene) around the streets of Manila, especially in the Quiapo area.

JAR OF HAPPINESS: 2014 Project
Starting today, January 1, 2014, I decided to push through with my long time overdue project. 

My project is my own jar of happiness. Each day, I'll try to write down all the blessings I received for the day so that whenever I feel depressed I can open my jar of happiness.

THE WINE BAR 1771: Beautiful Sunset Wedding & Reception Setup


THE WINE BAR 1771: Beautiful Sunset Wedding & Reception Setup
My brother and I were invited to witness the set up of The Wine Bar 1771 for a real wedding and reception yesterday. 
The two-in-one wedding and reception table setup was so lovely. The charming rustic feel makes you want to daydream and plan for your own wedding. I love how the natural sunlight illuminates through the French windows. 
The Wine Bar wedding reception table setup has that rustic, cozy and intimate feel. 
There are beautiful flowers on each table along with large rose cactus on wooden vase. The eco-friendly recycled wine bottles used as flower vases are so cute. Each table has a different wooden number that matches the guests seating assignment. I could spend hours swooning over the breathtaking floral arrangement. The venue's setup also includes fine china, elegant silverware, stem glassware and beautiful centerpieces all set in each table.
The table napkins on each table have individual cupcake souvenirs which add to the picturesque feel of the reception.
The rustic style of this reception is perfect for the sunset wedding.
I so love weddings! Weddings make my heart sing with joy. 
   
The Rustic Autumn Wedding Cake has multi colored leaves design. The wedding cake is very romantic and cheerful. Simple yet elegant. Those tiny autumn leaves radiates happiness and satisfaction on a lazy afternoon.
The large wedding scroll is so unique. Lovingly done by the stylist of The Wine Bar 1771. The old typewriter, hardbound books and colored bottles add to the rustic feel of the wedding set up. The Wine Bar 1771 is indeed the perfect venue for any occasion!

Your wedding day is one of the most exciting days of your life so you must only have the best. If you want a beautiful celebration that will make your dream wedding come true, consider the elegant reception hall of The Wine Bar 1771. It has various distinctive menu at affordable prices to suite your budget. It accepts wedding reception setup for a minimum of 40 people to 60 people.
