It’s like our country was hit by a tsunami. :(
I drew the Leyte Provincial Capitol as a tribute for all the victims of the most recent typhoon.Let’s hope that all things will go back to normal! Let’s help as much as we can.
So how “green” is Ateneo de Manila University? This map produced by the Ateneo Environmental Management Council provides a nice overview of the Ateneo’s systems.
We always pass by this beautiful church called Sto. Niño de Bustos in Bustos, Bulacan whenever we go home for the province. A while ago, I finally got the chance to see this up close! The church stands on a proud hill (reminded me of the Ateneo) of this heritage town. There is an interesting story why this church was honored in the name of the Child Jesus.
Bustos was part of the neighboring town of Baliuag. But then in 1860, a group of natives who wanted to baptize their babies in Baliuag drowned and perished when an accident happened to their raft which was the only way of crossing the ferocious Angat River which separated Bustos from Baliuag. Since then, the people of Bustos have tried to gain independence from Baliuag. And in honor of the infants that died, they put the town under the patronage of the Child Jesus or the Sto. Niño.
