A Quick Trip to Manaog Church
As you may have seen in my previous posts, my family went to La Union a couple of weeks ago to unwind. Since we were also up north, the husband decided that we drop by Manaog, Pangasinan to have my red car (which we call Sydney, by the way) blessed. It was also the first time for us to see the popular church so we were very excited for the opportunity.
When Leon saw the lit candles around the shrine of Our Lady of Manaog, he could not stop blowing the candles while singing Happy Birthday. We also managed to stop him from trying to touch the candles. (Super kulit nitong bata na to!)
We were very surprised on how quick the car blessing was done in Manaog. Since a lot of tourists go there, I believe the church had to do it as quickly as they can to accommodate all the people who wanted their items (cars, rosaries, prayer booklets, etc) blessed. We somewhat missed the solemnity of having our car blessed but we're still very pleased to have seen, and experienced it in Manaoag.
The church was very beautiful. We have no words to describe how clean and well maintained it is. The exteriors are newly renovated while the interiors maintained its old and sacred feel. Like other tourists, we did not miss the chance of having our photographs taken as well. For the little kid, he was so amused on how huge the outside of the church was and immediately made it his playground. While he was busy running around (with his Ate Jhai, of course) the husband and I took the opportunity of taking my #OO

We were also able to buy tons of delicious tupig, and other pasalubongs in the area. There were also a lot of kids who were force selling us their mini rosaries that we ended up buying from one of them.
So there you go! Hope you guys liked my mini Manaog church tour. Til next time!
