Daan Tayo sa Barasoain!


Dumalaw ako sa Santos General Hospital sa Bulacan para kumuha ng nga cases namin kasi nag-iipon na kami kasi graduating na rin kami kahit papaano.

Habang pauwi ako ay nkuha ko na ang mga cases ay may namataan akong isang lugar. Sabi ko, "Pamilyar ang lugar na ito ah! Ito 'yung nasa sampung piso hindi ba?". Napangiti lang ang katabi ko sa jeep tapos bumaba na ako.

Tama nga ako! Barasoain Church (also known as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish) nga ito! Natawa lang ako at syempre naglagalag na naman. Minsan lang naman ako makaraan sa mga lugar na ito kaya naman tinry ko na pumasok sa loob. Sarado kasi ang simbahan kasi hindi araw ng linggo at wala namang simba.

Sayang nga lang kasi madalian lang. Hindi man lang ako nakaattend ng mass man lang kasi talagang gagabihin na ako.


Barasoain Church is the site of the Constitutional Convention of the first Philippine Republic, making the Philippines the very first Asian Government to promulgate a Constitution. It was the Seat of the First Philippine Republic on Sept. 15, 1898 to the last week of Feb. 1899 under the presidency of Pedro Paterno. In its convent the Universidad Literaria Cientifica de Filipinas was first housed. It also boasts of a light and sound museum under the management of National Historical Institute.


Nagfoodtrip na lang ako ng kikiam at burger na itinitinda sa may gilid ng simbahan. Nakakatuwa naman. Kahit papaano ay narating ko ang Barasoain Church na sa sampung piso ko lang dati nakikita.

Next time, I hope ay maka-attend naman ako ng simba dito. Iba pa rin ang nagsisimba pero at least nagdasal ako kahit papaano. Simple lang naman ang dasal ko e, "Diyos ko, gabayan mo po ako. Salamat!"

Wow! Naalala ko rin ang panahong una akong nagawi sa Malolos, dinalaw ko rin ang Barasoain. Nakakatuwa talaga para sa isang taga-Mindanao ang makita/mabisita ang mga makasaysayang pook sa Luzon! Promise. o",)

May museum pa yan sa loob, Chard.

[Ang photos ko sa Barasoain ay hindi pa digital. Kailan pa ba 'yon?! 2001 pa.]

Naalala ko tuloy yung leadership training namin nung college. Amazing race ang team. Isa ang barasoain sa mga pitstop!

Di namin masyado na explore kase we are racing from each other. Ako ang "Camper of the Year" noon at yung Team ko ang 3rd Place out of 10 Teams.

Kelan kaya ulit ako makakapunta ng Barasoain?!
