One Sunday noon, my boyfriend abruptly text me that he and his folks will arrive to my house to pick me up because they’re going to Regina Rica. A pious place in small town of Tanay province of Rizal . This place is a sanctuary for those who soul search. The vast area of vicinity is full of lush trees and grass and hills. The true core attraction  of this place is the enormous bronze statue of Mother Mary that holds baby Jesus on her hand while standing on the hill in the heart of the place. Inside the wide skirt of the statue is actually  a mini chapel that can hold 20 persons and where the  monstrance or onstensorium is place at the center.

You know what, I don’t really good at describing a place like this one but this place is really really holy, in a way that I can feel it. And, given that I went to this place impromptu, I wasn’t able to bring my camera. So, bf’s cousins camera is enough for a little photo taking. ;)

This what Mother Mary and Jesus look like in more up-close. The fog is everywhere because rain is coming and the place is mountainous and elevated.

Thriftier's Outfit:
black and blue dress - Local Boutique
Knitted Blazer - Gallery; Thrift

The outfit I wore is just conservative because I know that the place has a strict dress code. They want the visitors to have a decent attire before entering the church or going to the foot of the mother. In some visitors who do not know about the dress code,  they have a stock of linen cloth that can be wear around your waist and tuck it to become a mid length skirt for the the extra skin that is exposed when they're wearing a short or a mini skirt/dress.
