mylotters, how's it going? DO you have any good plans for the holy week? Tomorrow, I will go to a place which is far from the city and spend my time in solitude and enjoy the freshness of air. I am excited of what I am going to do. What about you?

Just like you i am excited of the Holly week vacation which will start tomorrow. On Friday, i shall be going to our hometown to observe the traditional procession. Husband will not go with me but would just stay at home, since usually robbers attack on Good Fridays, when they know that people are into vacations. I know i will enjoy the Holy Week, because my sister and her family arrived from Antipolo. It will be a nice time to bond with the family.

Our hometown is in a town just 30 minutes public ride from where we live and work. It's a place where it is near the sea and rural with lots of fruit bearing trees and flowering plants. An ideal place for a vacation.

No plans of going anywhere for me. So I'd just stay home and go to church and probably read more on the word of God.

The family just stays at home during Holy Week. We never really had vacations even when I was a child. It was church and house all the time. Our dad would always want us to contemplate. It's like having a retreat/recollection.

good. I went out of town and luckily, in the place we stayed, two groups of people quarrelled and it was good because barangay police arrived.

Friday would be my company outing, time to thank my small number of workers by treating them to free swimming and outing together with their immediate family especially their little kids, together with my own family and relatives especially my younger brother who is also my business partner together with the family of his workers, I think this is a good time to show a little good to people, just like our savior when he was on Earth. BTW i am not Catholic but respect very much what other countrymen have on there agenda like rites and rituals and family reunions , have a nice weekend.

none. I have a job to do and my vacation will be this coming may. I don't want to be stranded in an airport,bus station or port because we know 80% of our population are going to have vacation to their hometowns. I don't want to experience all that hassle. so I decided to have my vacation somewhere in May. so for now I will concentrate on my work as people are suffering in traffic.

I wanted to stay home and rest but luckily or unfortunately I chose to travel with my auntie and cousin. Luckily because we will be going to the Banaue Rice Terraces. It would be a nice place to do some reflections and at the same time some relaxation. Unfortunately because of the traffic. But so far traffic is bearable and in 3 more hours, we will reach our destination.

i think i will just stay home and watch movies, or sometimes we go to a place here where most people go on holy week to pray and do 14 stations of the cross or sometimes we do it by visiting and praying in 13 churches. we'll never know what's going to happen, sometimes we don't have plans but end up going there and doing things.

I'm excited too because we are having a family outing. Holy week is a time for sharing and reminiscing God's sacrifices so we should have find time to pray and thank Him while we are in a vacation and having fun. God Bless us! :)

We're supposed to go to the nearest resort for swimming however we're changing plans because we know there will be a lot of people who are going there too and we won't enjoy swimming anymore because of the crowded place. So instead of going anywhere, we'll just stay in the house of my parents. Malls won't open so I'll just spend my whole day in front of the net or perhaps enjoy my time playing with my adopted daughter.

how did you spend your vacation then? I went to beach and it was really crowded but it is okay because the beach is to big but I still enjoyed it even though, in the crowds there were fights but it is good that barangay police arrived early.

I invited for diner one of my favorite nieces. Her husband is coming to my house for the first time and they are coming with their 5 month`s old baby. I`m looking forward to that and I`m preparing all sorts of goodies beforehand. That`s on Friday, and I don`t know much what I will do the rest of the weekend.

Hi, Maybe we should hit the beach this early now that there's time for it. This is the time to take some time to get away from the daily routine of going to work and a diversion is just about right. No activity is scheduled for the morning anyway so a getaway should make everything fine.

I'll just stay at home and relax for the whole week because I am really exhausted with my training and on my school works. I hope to get a good relaxation. Enjoy your trip.
