Santo Niño Shrine Museum

In 2008, hubby and his officemates were able to visit Tacloban City through the auspices of the company’s old patron. One of the places they visited was the Santo Niño Shrine in Tacloban City.

The Santo Niño Shrine used to be one of the 29 presidential rest houses of the late Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos.

Santo Niño is a representation of the infant Jesus Christ. He is the patron saint of Leyte.
In the background is the mosaic of Jesus Christ displayed on the wall.

Popular Tourist Spots in the Philippines

Puerto Princesa Underground River

The Philippines has recently been listed as one of the countries that tourists should visit at the moment. The country is full of beautiful spots that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. Its tropical climate makes it perfect for swimming because the temperature may tend to be warm. Boracay is one of the places that tourists love to visit the most. Its pristine white sand is so fine that they almost look like powder. Other than Boracay, tourists also love visiting Cebu and Palawan. From fun under the sun to partying at night, popular tourist spots from Boracay, Cebu and Palawan Underground River will keep you glued to the Philippines for a while.

Philippine Postcard #3: Magellan’s Cross

I collected this postcard from my niece’s school project that shows the different tourists spots in the Philippines.

Magellan’s Cross is found  in front of the city hall of Cebu City. We (some friends from the DOH and fellow reporters) were able to pass the historical landmark, but unfortunate to take a souvenir photo inside the chapel.
