Almost But Not Quite Yet



Almost But Not Quite Yet, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

I see this building up close at least twice a week. It's almost done compared to this photo I took last year so maybe people can actually move in this year as promised.

Home Away from Home



Bayview Hotel Singapore, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

I called Bayview Hotel Singapore my home away from home twice already. I discovered this hotel while looking for accomodations near churches. Later, I found out that it's also a good starting point for The Great Singapore Sale, being walking distance to Bugis, Orchard Road and the Civic District.

Off Limits



Off Limits, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

A fence usually signifies that something is off limits or at least requires permission to enter. This structure in Malaysia was fenced and not open to visitors. But I managed to get a shot through the fence, using its parts to frame the structure.

Remains of the Day



Ruins of St. Paul's - Detail, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

What's left of the St. Paul's Church in Macau is just the facade. Its image is the most representative of Macau.

Sumasampalataya Ako



Bantay Church - Inside, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

Para sa marami sa atin, ang relihiyon ay sya nating kinagisnan at pinamana sa atin ng ating mga magulang. Kung paano natin siya isabuhay ay ating sariling desisyon at tungkulin.

For many of us, religion is something we grew up with or was handed to us by our parents. How we live it is our choice and responsibility.

Well Preserved



Vigan - Detail, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

They don't build buildings like they used to. Thanks to heritage conservation advocates, we get to view these remnants of the past.

Red and Old



Christ Church Melaka, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

The Christ Church of Malacca, built in the 1700s, is but one of the red buildings in the square. It is a reminder of the city's Dutch history which goes back to the 1400s.

To Antiquity and Beyond



Sitio Remedios Door, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

This is the door of a house in the heritage village resort that is Sitio Remedios. While the inside houses vintage furniture, it also provides modern day comforts such as airconditioning.

Panalangin



Caleruega, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

Kasama lagi ng isang mithi ay isang panalanging ito'y matupad. At minsan kung saan saan tayo napapadpad. Sa Antipolo para sa mga magbabiyahe. Sa Obando para sa gustong magkaanak. Kay San Antonio para sa mga nawawalan. Kay Sta. Clara para di umulan.

A wish is at all times accompanied by a prayer that it comes true. And sometimes, it takes us to a lot of places. To Antipolo for those about to travel. To Obando for those who want to have children. To St. Anthony for those who've lost something. To St. Claire to pray for no rain.
