Yesterday, October 8, 2010, I, Ate Hazel and her friend, Jayson, went to Simala, Sibonga in the province of Cebu to have a visit at the Monastery of the Holy Eucharist. Actually, I haven’t had any plans yesterday since I was considering for our scheduled exam, but since my classmates confirmed that we do not have an exam, I just go with Ate Hazel and Jayson.We departed here in Cebu City South Bus Terminal at around 6:30 AM. Rode a Ceres bus. Arrived there at around 8:00 AM.
As we arrived at the town of Sibonga, we rode again a Pedicab
going to Brgy. Simala where the Monastery is located.

It was still 8:00 in the morning but the heat of the rising sun is like peeling my skin off. Even in me feet, I really feel the pricking hotness of the sun.
Jayson praying for Mama Mary.
Ate Hazel having fun taking pictures of me while moving out from the
church. But I was the one who took this for her.
This was what Ate Hazel got after taking picture for me. We were
move out from the church this time.
Have you noticed that I already have had sarong around me? Hehe. It’s because wearing of short skirts and sleeveless are not allowed. I really forgot it. Even entering a church, attending masses, wearing those stuffs are not allowed, I only remembered when the bus were riding at was mobiling already. Good enough that Ate Hazel has brought her sarong with her.
The experience of being there, having Mama Mary again in life, in fact I was once a Children of Mary member but when I enrolled in UP, I became an inactive one, is much fulfilling like being complete again.
We’re able to roam around the monastery for more than 2 hours.
