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.
