Pilgrimage to Antipolo and My Sister's Birthday

The month of May, apart from being the month of Our Lady, is definitely loaded with birthdays for my family.

First to celebrate is me (May 13), my cousin Ate Rizza (May 19), then my Tita Mila (May 21), my Dad (May 22), my cousin Ria (May 23), my sister (May 24), and finally my Tito Jerry (May 30).

As a tradition in my family, we always go up to Antipolo to give thanks for our May birthdays. And so on my sister's birthday, I invited my Tito Freddie and Tita Mila from Germany for a short pilgrimage to Antipolo to visit the historical Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage.

The place was crowded with pilgrims like us. Though it was hot inside, I felt very happy for it brought back wonderful memories of my childhood. :-)

Here's my tito and tita:

In the afternoon, we decided to go to Calamba to see my sister, the birthday girl, who was staying there for her annual course.

We just had a quick snack in the nearby Red Ribbon in WalterMart.

The day ended quite well. It was a very happy day for me and my family. Too bad my Dad is still in Batangas and was not there to celebrate with us. He did pass by with cake and palabok earlier that day daw on their way back to Batangas.
