Holy Week Celebration

photo via From Holy Wednesday to Black Saturday, some establishments stop operations. People spend time with their families and observe Holy Week traditions. As a Filipino who grow up in a Christian family we observe this tradition. I have a vivid memory on how my family spends the entire week. We refrain from attending any extracurricular activities within reason.

Such an occasional stress. I guess by wearing that Barney polo shirt uniform everyday will save me more time, money and laundry. Did I say Barney oh! Yes its purple…Barney everyday:) 2. The ability to jog outdoors without feeling like my lungs is clawing out of my body like an enraged cat. 3. A real money so I can grant my mom wish to renovate her kitchen and have a sosyal lang ng mother ko:) 4. Quit: signature coffee. This obsession must stop. I get obsesses with things easily and this is one of those things. Holly Molly! I should stick to 3in 1 coffee or the free coffee vendo in our office.This would save
