Locals call the mere jungle where the waters of Saint Lucia's Well springs as "Banal na Pook" (sacred place)โ€” the exact spot where two girls found the venerated image of Our Lady of Caysasay levitating; and aptly called the well waters asย "Banal na Tubig" (sacred waters)โ€” it supposedly possess miraculous healing powers.

Two water holes of St. Lucia's Well concealed in thick vegetation.
...
The coral stone arch on top of the natural spring was built in 1600s after the uncanny image of Our Lady of Caysasay was found there after being lost for years. Locals deemed the serene jungle sacred; water running beneath the arch is believed to possess healing attributes. Why the wellspring was named after St. Lucia instead of something related to the Our Lady, no one knows.

Just learned while browsing my feed (from @nccaofficial) that today is Gen. Miguel Malvar's birthday (b. 1865; Sto. Tomas, Batangas). #todayinhistory
...
He's very much known as the last revolutionary leader to surrender to the Americans during the Filipino-American War (1899-1902). #neversaydie. Cheers to that! ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜‰
...
A modern museum in honor of him is located in front of Sto. Tomas municipal building. Opens Tuesday-Sunday, no entrance fee. Contact no:ย (043) 784-8481

While savoring my coffee cup this morning I realize, "love for coffee" is one thing I brought home from #Iloilo. To date, it's been around 200 caffeine-infused mornings in the office. โ˜•๐Ÿ˜…
...
I'm not really into coffee before. I don't know what's with #MadgeCafe that after my visit, coffee has become a part of my day. Maybe because of the cafe's not-so-fancy, modest, dirt cheap shop, yet the always freshly brewed native coffee they serve is a local favorite (for more than half a century now, they say; that's tradition, a heritage). Seeing Ilonggos sipping a cup alone while reading the daily, and groups chit-chatting maybe about life or business over their cups might have subtly taught me: kickstarting the day with a great cup of this wakey juice is winning half the battle against the eight-hour boredom in front of the office monitor. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‰
...
Sure thing, I'm gonna get a morning jolt here again when i visit the city next month. โ˜•

Inside Caysasay Church, a mural on its wall depicting how the venerated image of Our Lady of Caysasay came to town in 1603 -- a certain Juan Maningcad fishing it out at the nearby Pansipit River. #taalheritagetown #batangas #taalbatangas #simbahan  #catholicchurch #heritage #pinoytravelogue #taal #ourladyofcaysasay #caysasay #caysasaychurch #sibatangas
Inside Caysasay Church, the other highly regarded house of Catholic worship in Taal, Batangas (alongside Taal Basilica). It enshrine the supposedly miraculous image of Our Lady of Caysasay.
.
Vatican City bestowed upon the small church the same spiritual privilege it granted upon the ancient Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, one of the "four major basilica" of Roman Catholicism.

Bulky, boxy vintage cameras with shutter button that looks like you're gonna get someone's blood pressure reading at any moment. Imagine yourself bringing these kinds of camera on your trips. ๐Ÿ˜

A rustic room that houses restored colonial era photographs and glass-paneled cases that each hold an array of well-preserved pieces โ€” from bulky, accordion-like cameras of centuries ago up to the lightweight pieces of digital age. Galleria Taal gives a walk-through on how cameras evolved through time.
