Coming back from our rendezvoos at victory food mall, I decided to stop by Baclaran church since I haven't been there before and it would be easier to get an Uber too 128513 entering the gate it seems like an oasis in the middle of the chaos which is Baclaran. There were actually a lot of trees along the sides and it was much quieter too. There is an adoration chapel off to the left (but I didn't take anymore photos for privacy/respect) where you can light candles for your own intentions. Spent a few minutes here and peeked into the main chapel but it was already the middle of mass. I also think that the design and architecture of the exterior is quite timeless. Glad that there's this quiet spot in Baclaran and will definitely drop by again when I go back 128522

The day before the rendezvoos, I actually went to Baclaran last Friday to get myself familiarized with the area again -- but most particularly on how to get to Victory Food Market, which I hadn't been to before.

I also took the opportunity to visit nearby places there, including the famous church.9962

Baclaran used to be our frequent "pasyalan" back in the 80s (I feel so old now), so I couldn't help but feel a bit nostalgic. But since I hadn't been there for the past 30 years or so, I felt a bit like an alien again hahaha. Thanks to Google Maps, I didn't have much difficulty in locating it.

I didn't get inside the church. Instead, I was more interested on exploring what was surrounding the church.

The first thing I noticed about the church itself was that it had become gray, from all the dust and soot. It used to be really white before. Now, it badly needs some scrubbing and repainting. And maybe some restoration -- historical landmark din yan.

I didn't remember if there was already a wishing fountain, but I finally saw it. People threw not just coins into the fountain, but also paper bills! 128561 First time to see that. That explained the high glass barrier (complete with a lock) that surrounded the fountain.

And last but not the least... The love locks fad has already reached Baclaran. I couldn't help being amused at them. My nasty little head would mock at them: "walang forever" Bitter lols. Just kidding. 128514 Makapagbenta nga ng kandado jan. 12851810084128274

There was also a much more modern bell tower where Sinirangan Coffee is housed. I was surprised this cafe hasn't been listed on Looloo yet so I sent a request (and still waiting for the approval).

Before heading to Madrid Fusion Manila at SMX, offered a candle and a prayer to my beloved Philippines and thank God for all the blessings he showered upon me. This is one of the busiest churches in Metro Manila and security is a bit lax so be extra careful of prying eyes sneaking a chance to get hold of your belongings. I hope they can maintain the cleanliness both in and out of the compound.

Baclaran Church also known as the National Shrine of Mother of Perpetual Help. According to history the church started its groundbreaking on 1953 and completed on 1958. Baclaran Church is situated along Roxas Boulevard and one of the historical facts is that Pope John Paul II blessed the church during his visit on 1981.

Every Wednesday novena will be flooded by devotees from different classes, they called it Baclaran Day. 128591🏻9962

Visited this place once late last year. I promised to post a picture next time.

The church is full of Catholic devotees of Perpetual Help. Novena is held every Wednesday. 128591
