Caleruega it is!

I've always wanted to go to Caleruega (all the while I though it's Calaruega, mali pala). We dont have a car at unaccessible yung place kung magcommute lang. Thanks to Lloyd and Grace, one of the sweetest and nicest couples that I ever met, for giving us a free tour to Caleruega and other must see places sa Tagaytay. Natupad ang pangarap ko! haha (and we are looking forward na makasama din kayo sa Baguio trip!)

Im so impressed with the serenity of the place though we haven't reached the church yet. Interesting plants are everywhere to beautify the place more. Other details are also scattered along the hallway to make the staircase look more elegant, romantic, and peaceful. Lloyd told us that this staircase is where the brides usually march thru the aisle. Dramatic and divine! Hhmm...

a dramatic slash divine march down the aisle

photographic scenery

Finally, our first glimpse of the church. Wow! Beautiful indeed. Parang yung nakikita ko lang sa postcard! hehe Kahit effort puntahan, no wonder people still visit this place to give praise. Perfect kasi. As per the motto of the church, "closer to nature is closer to God."

first glimpse of the church

You will surely won't miss this interesting statue in front of the church. Words aren't needed to explain what this statue is all about..

This is my feyborit shot by Enrico. I grabbed this from his Flickr account. Peram!


And opcors, how can we leave this place without being photographed infront of the church and the statue.

living in a postcard

Fine, ang jitims na namen kakagala. Dont look at Enrico now, galing siya from a 5-day vacation at Caramoan. Spell sunburn! ;)

We entered the church to attend the 11am mass. Just check my previous post for the wonderful homily.

After mass, start na ng photosession proper so kanya kanya muna. I wanna share this eksena made by Enrico.

Eksenahan 408

Im so busy with taking photos inside the church and I didn't notice na lumabas na pala sila. As I stepped out, Enrico knelt down. He was holding a rose.

I know he is just making an eksena so I moved away laughing and saying "Weh, pinulot mo lang yan!"

He remained kneeling and he insisted that I take what he's offering. I look at the rose again, and inside it, I saw a RING.

Inferness sayo dude, nalito ako at kinabahan ng 2 seconds. This is the most impressive eksena you did so far. Good job! (--,)

Bakit di ako convinced that it's for real? Wala lang. I just know. After all, walang nagpro-propose ng naka-slippers! (ang choosy ko pa!) haha

Moving on Moving on...
We strolled and explored the place more. Andame pala intersting spots which Caleruega is offering. There is a picnic area neraby. Very peaceful and quiet. Perfect sa mga nagreretreat. And opcors, photosession din. Pero observe silence para di tayo makaistorbo sa iba.

tulay po kayo

These man-made water attractions add a very relaxing sound to the environment.

mini waterfalls

koi pond

I think the place is also perfect for family bonding. Ansarap magspent ng weekend afternoon dito.

Caleruega exceeded my expectation. The place is outstanding. You must really visit this place sometime (at isama nyo ko please!)

The Scud said...

ba't parang ang dami gusto magpunta na caleruega this summer? curious ako!

enrico said...

hay, ganun pala feeling pag na-reject ka sa proposal. siguro mas effective nga kung yung holdap scene na lang sa bus ang gagawin ko. kunwari mangho-holdap ako tapos paglapit sayo magpo-propose na pala. hehehe. balik sa caleruega scene, medyo natakot rin ako, baka bigla ka kasi mag-yes. haha. e baka sa jollibee lang tayo makapag-reception at mass wedding lang ang ma-afford ko.

salamat uli kina lloyd and grace sa pagdala sa atin sa tagaytay. thanks to jane din for the free lunch.

ngapala, tandaan ang sabi ni father. don't be afraid of the light. kaya eto, ni-embrace ko talga ang light sa bicol. end shot, puti na lang sa mata ang maputi sakin. hehehe :9
