It's been almost a year since I last posted about the letters and stuff I got. This has been on my "backlog" folder in my laptop for almost a year and I can't believe how I almost forgot about this! Anyhow, here is what was in my mailbox so many months ago. hehe~
The Santo Niño procession will never ever be the same again.
This year's procession was the first of the many years to come without the presence of my cousin. The candies we threw at people and the nilagang mani (steamed peanuts? i'm not so sure. haha) top the most memorable stuff in the procession that reminds me of him.
Photos from last January 25,2015 for our annual Santo Nino de Atocha procession. :3 We don't have uniform shirts this year too. Also, notice how we don't have photos of ourselves in this year's procession? see 2013 and 2014.
I feel so blessed to be one of the Thomasian Youth Particpants last January 18, 2015 during Pope Francis' Encounter with the Youth at my school, the University of Santo Tomas. "To date, the current location of UST in Espana, Manila has seen three papal visits—by Pope Blessed Paul VI in 1970 and Pope St. John Paul II in 1981 and 1995". This was the 4th and I am extremely grateful to be a part of history. :)))
From the ballet "Giselle", the willis are the ghosts of women dressed in white gowns. They are the young virgins who died before their wedding day. They can be seen as the evil female spirits in the ballet play. They are led by Martha (Myrtha) who is the queen of the willis. And Giselle is among them as seen in Act 2.
