Just like Christmas, every Cebuano is anticipating the Sinulog festival or the Feast of the Holy Child every January. It falls on the 3rd Sunday of January and a 9-day novena is offered in preparation for the feast.
Since it was year-end close, January was one of those bad-hair-day months for me. I was extremely busy (which I think has some good points), where I needed to render some over time over a couple of weeks just to meet deadlines. And so, since I am on a midday shift but wanted to attend the novena with ease, I went to a 4am mass every after shift with my officemates.
It was my first time to attend to the first mass of the morning kind of novena. It was fulfilling but tiring at thr same time. I think this was due to the fact that I rendered overtime and went straight to church after work.
I actually took a picture of the altar at the church (a bit cliche), however, seems like it was mistakenly deleted. So here’s a pic I got of the sunrise when I went home from church.
This picture might not be the best to describe the awe-inspiring sight of the sunrise, but believe me, this sight was incredible when you see it in person.
I love sunrise and sunsets. Well apart from its aeshetic aspects, I love the way it meant to me on a deeper sense of metaphoric description.
