Lunar Year at Trappistine Monastery, Polomolok

It took me about 8 months to post again. It's been a while and it feels great to be back in the line. 


Happy Lunar Year of the Wooden Horse! 

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

So how did I spend my first day of the year?

Celebrating Chinese New Year has been an annual occasion for me and my family. This event is one of the occasions that we always look forward to.

Typically, we would prepare a table filled with different kinds of food to be shared to everyone. But this year, we decided to celebrate it far different from how we celebrated the past few years.

I always wanted to visit the Trappistine Monastery since then but I always missed the chance to do so. I was glad that after many attempts, I finally had the chance to visit the Monastery located at Landan, Polomolok. 

It is a 13-15 kilometer drive from Poblacion, passing through the lands occupied by DOLE Philippines. 

My mom took the picture above. 

So after a few minutes, we arrived at our destination.

I'd like to share to you some pictures of my most favorite real-life couple, my parents. :)

The Monastery Church. It has this holy and classic ambiance despite of its modernized structure.

My mom with all those goodies, freshly baked by the monks. They're selling different export quality pastries at a very reasonable price.

Here's my fave finds.

Let me share some pictures of my parents again. :))

I encourage everyone to visit the place, especially to those who haven't gone there before. The travel was really worth it. 

The Monastery is open daily from 8:00am - 4:30pm. They have a mass from Mondays-Saturdays at 6:30am. They also have a mass during Sundays and feast days at 10:00am.

You can contact the people of the Monastery with these following numbers:


Once again, Gong Xi Fa Cai, everybody! Have a fruitful and bountiful new year! <3
