“Love our Lady. And she will obtain abundant grace to help you conquer in your daily struggle.”
–St. Josemaria Escriva

I started collecting images of our Blessed Virgin Mary last 2012. As a young catholic before I’ve been to some of the miraculous churches of the Blessed Virgin Mary, one of these is the Our Lady of Manaoag in Pangasinan, Ina Poon Bato in my home town Botolan, Zambales, Our Mother of Perpetual Help in Baclaran, and Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage in Antipolo, Rizal. Last year around December, I tried to google the churches named after Mama Mary and it came into my mind to try to have a trip on each of the churches and collect images of the Blessed Mary.  I am sure  that it would be a good topic here in my blog since i’ll be visiting other provinces where I can see the churches. Here is the list of my itinerary for this journey. Join me in discovering Her different images which had been admired and devoted by other people . This will be a journey of a life time that will connect me more  to my Faith of being a Catholic.

I’ve been to some of these churches before, and when I revisit them I’ll share the details of my trip. I hope that I could visit them all and give thanks to all the blessing I had and will be receiving.

the happy mouseI’ve been thinking of a subject that would really fit with my blog’s name, so I tried to look for a mouse figure in stores. Mickey mouse is a good one but I can’t use him, it was  really hard to look for one. I bought some modelling and tried to create my own happy mouse figure. This will be one of the many that I will create to join me on this blog. I will show different faces of the happy mouse as I travel, and together we will inspire you how beautiful we see the world is.

Batad Rice Terraces

“Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody  to click the shutter.”

– Ansel Adams

Come and join me as I recall my breath taking experience discovering the hidden beauty of Batad Rice Terraces. This trip happened 2 years ago together with my college friends. A challenge that tested my stamina and agility, a lot of trekking while admiring the wonders of nature. Be amazed and admire how the people of Ifugao managed to create a monument which had been recognised globally

“Perseverance, patience, preparation and inspiration are some of the attitude that I always keep in mind when ever I am holding my camera. I can say that for me it works as a beginner back then and still works for me after several years of taking pictures.”

“ You’ve got to push yourself harder.
You’ve got to start looking for pictures nobody else could take.
You’ve got to take the tools you have and probe deeper.”
