I had an awesome experience visiting this church for the first time. Well, maybe because it wasnt peak season haha. It wasnt crowded and the sun was intense, which allowed me to admire the church in all its awe inspiring majesty. 128146 Glad i was able to finally check this ine off my bucket list.

I also enjoyed the tupig and bibingka being sold by the vendors in the church. It was my first time to try tupig and i enjoyed it a lot! It tasted sweet and coconut-y. And I was intrigued at how they wrapped each piece in banana leaf and grilled them in rows. The smell of the grilled tupig was fantastic! The bibingka was also something new. It was white, flat, and tasted coconut-y as well. Good, good stuff!

And, yeah, it does feel a bit strange writing a review about a church visit and talking mostly about food. 128514

*Pls look at my photo as I think I took a great shot9786️ Sorry papansin haha.

We always come here when my mom visits the country. We take the long drive to the church and we usually don't even make any other stops, not even just to eat, as I just want to go home as quickly as possible. It's very tiring even using an A/T car. Thank goodness for TPLEX as I think it saved us at least an hour's travel this time.

The last few times I've been here we've been going on a weekday. Not strategically but because that's the only free time my mom has. This time though we went on a Sunday, and oh my, ang daming tao! I didn't know what to say and would definitely not complain, mahirap na mapagalitan pa ako ni Mama.

I was already getting a bit anxy as the sheer volume of people was getting me weary. However as we were waiting outside for mass I noticed a lot of people in their Sunday best. I felt embarrassed in my crappy shorts, I forgot we were going to a church, on a Sunday too, and not a tourist destination. There were sick people patiently waiting, including a woman who looked like she has been having chemotherapy being fanned by her companions, and tourists just like my mom who make it a point to visit the shrine. I felt so guilty that I knew my sour mood had no place among those that came there to worship. I couldn't help but shed a tear as I saw so many sick people who I know are there praying for a miracle. Who am I to complain when my only problem was the pagod for the drive home?

This is a very large church and it was filled to over capacity that Sunday we went. I suggest you go on a weekday if you don't mind not going on a Sunday. The weekdays will allow you to reflect quietly. There is a lot of parking around the church as residents offer their own places, not sure though if they charge a fee. Expect a lot of traffic by car going in and out of the church. I did see traffic enforcement along the perimeter.

There's a shop on the 2nd floor and a museum too. If you want to offer mass they have an organized area on the ground floor for you to request for your intentions. There is a big candle area at the back. You can use whatever candle you like. They have a water area for floating candles as seen in this photo.

My mother swears of her devotion to Our Lady of Manaoag. She believes all her prayers have been answered. Come here if you would like to witness Catholic devotion or be devout yourself.

We usually go here with my fam when I was a kid. After mass, we set up our foods to have lunch on their sort of a cottage. But now, we went here to have our car blessed. :)

This place is quite far from Manila (and the traffic makes travel time longer) but it is worth the trouble. It is so serene and beautiful here. The place is well maintained and they have now cemented the parking area. There are more parking slots for visitors.

They still sell colorful candles for you to light up. The photo above is of my best friend, offering a prayer after lighting her candle. I encourage you all to visit this place and to say a prayer while here.

Drove all the way to Manaoag to see the prestigious church.

They renovated some parts of it though. But it still has its "old Filipino" church look.

Old folks say that the Lady of Manaoag is miraculous. They say sick people go here to have themselves healed by the Lady of Manaoag.

The church is very clean. It has a very fancy decorative ceiling which makes it even more awesome.

Great way to spend my 24th of December. 128076
