More selfies while waiting for Pope Francis!! :)
The UST Yellow Jackets taught us cheers for Pope Francis' arrival.
Angeline Quintos sang.
And also Jed Medala.
The waiting moments were fun if I must say. And then... we heard cheers and screaming. We realized that Pope Francis is now inside UST! woohoo!
Because we were in front of the stage, we had no idea that this was happening while we were hearing all those screams and cheers! We did see the Pope Mobile. Just a glimpse of it though. Of course I knew that a motorcade would happen. :)
Lolo Kiko is so nice. And is smile is so contagious. :)))
Among all the photos I took, this one is my favorite. :")
Pope Francis is so adorable!
He was so inspiring!
FULL TEXT: Pope Francis' message, youth encounter, UST
I never realized how many devotees and Catholics were actually there for we entered UST grand stand at around 3am and we went straight to our designated place in front of the stage. I mean, I knew there were thousands of people but I never imagined the crowd this huge!!!
The Filipino faith is indeed something to be proud of. And yes, it was typhoon-proof. :)
Because I had a little sleep and my last full-food intake was hours and hours ago (2am), plus so many people and it was raining and I had no protection, I almost fainted! I knew the feeling I swear, I've felt it before so when I realized that I was having a difficulty in breathing, and I feel kind of dizzy, and my sight was slowly darkening and I'm losing my sense of hearing, I asked the person beside me to tell them (short for whoever can help me) that I am "nahihilo" dizzy. And I swear if the girl didn't guide me out / took me to the nearest first-aid station, I swear I could have fainted! :( Promise, hinang-hina na ko nun and I could barely speak. They took my blood pressure and I could tell it wasn't good. It was two digits over two digits. I was conscious so I could hear what was happening. I heard them that I should really be taken to the "clinic". The exact words were, "kailangan na talaga natin siya dalhin sa **the words faded. im not sure*. Then they asked me if I can (capable) to walk any further and I said I can't anymore so I was taken out of the crowd via stretcher.
My college best friend was there with me. I heard someone say to her, "sumama ka na rin. malapit ka na din oh". And so she did. And because she's my "true friend", she decided to take tons of photos of me! hahaha :\
