Antipolo Attractions: Old Boso Boso Church

No comments
Last May 09, 2015, when we decided to went to an old church at Antipolo named Nuestra Senora de la Anunciata Parish or popularly known as Boso Boso Church via our mighty ride zuki. Actually, it was my idea to go there since I fell in love with it the moment I saw it online. The church is situated at Old Boso-Boso, Barangay San Jose in Antipolo City, Rizal, Philippines.

According to wikipedia:
The first church was built as a mission church by the Franciscan missionaries sometime in the late 16th to early 17th century. The Jesuits eventually took over the mission there in the 17th century who began constructing a new church made of stone and brick, It was turned over to the seculars in 1768 when the Jesuits were expelled from the Philippines.
In 1880, an earthquake caused significant damage to the church. Owing to the dwindling population in the area, the damaged portions of the church were not rebuilt.

In 1930, the Americans planned to build a dam in Boso Boso, Thus, the remaining inhabitants were ordered to resettle elsewhere. The dam project was eventually abandoned due to a discovered earthquake fault line, yet the people did not return until the time of the Japanese occupation. Even then, whatever that was left of the church was subsequently burned down by the Japanese, leaving only the lower portion of the original church facade intact.

As the area was eventually resettled, administration of the parish was taken over by the Camillian order in 1986 who helped organize the restoration of the church. Restoration was completed in 1995, preserving the original remaining façade of the old church with the rebuilt portions built as close as possible to the simple, sparse architecture of the old structure.

When I saw the church personally, I felt really captivated and it was like going back to old times. I totally love it - the church facade, the altar, the giant trees, the community around the church, and the fresh air. I must say that it is one of the worthy places to visit in Antipolo. I wish we could go back there again soon.

Nutri10 Plus for Active Kids

No comments

My 2 kids, CA & C, are taking vitamins everyday. I always followed their pedia advice since they are usually prone to cough and colds. It never crossed my mind to try other brands like flintstones and scott multivitamins since their current vitamins are very suited for them.

A few weeks ago, Wert Philippines send us this new multivitamins, Nutri10 Plus for active kids. Since my kids vitamins were already consumed all, I am very glad that this new vitamins came at the right time. *Savings*

Nutri10 Plus contains the following vitamins & minerals that is really essential for our growing kids:
  • Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) - which helps children to grow at an accelerated rate.
  • Zinc - contributes to the maintenance of cell and organ integrity
  • Taurine - which helps in brain development
  • Lysine - help boost appetite.
  • Vitamin A - which is important for growth and development, and for good vision
  • Vitamin Bs -  play important roles in cell metabolism. 
  • Vitamin C -  necessary for normal growth and development. 

That's goodness in 1 bottle so what can we ask for? I hope my dearest kiddos will be "hiyang" with this. To know more about Nutri10 Plus, visit their Facebook page:
