St Claire Monastery in Quezon City

Last Saturday I told my mom that I want to visit St Claire Monastery again. It's been 7 years since my last visit.  We bought egg outside the church as offering, 6 pieces eggs cost Php 40.00. It has different color, I bought red and pink (for travel,job and love life). 

There are pencils and papers provided if you want to write your wish/prayers.  St Clare is open daily from 5:30am to 7:00pm.

St. Clare of Assisi was born into a wealthy Italian family but soon shunned her luxurious upbringing to embrace the life of piety and poverty. Inspired by the words of Francis of Assisi, Clare fled her home and joined Francis, establishing her own religious order. The group became known for their austere and devout lifestyle and for the power of their prayer, which is credited with saving Assisi from invaders twice. After Francis' death, Clare continued his work and broadened her own influence. Clare died in 1253 and was canonized two years later by Pope Alexander IV.

Clare was born in Assisi, Italy, in 1193 to wealthy parents, and was taught to read and write as well as spin yarn and do needlework. She had little interest in her luxurious surroundings (she lived in a palace), and influenced by her mother's religious devotion, Clare dedicated her life to God at an early age. She also showed early on that her calling would involve helping the poor, as she set aside food from her family table to give to the needy on the streets.

When Clare was 18, Francis of Assisi came to preach in the church of San Giorgio at Assisi. Inspired by his words, Clare asked Francis to help her in dedicating her life to God, and he vowed to do so. The following year (1211), Clare's parents chose a wealthy young man for Clare to marry, but she pointedly refused, fleeing soon after for the Porziuncola Chapel, where Francis received her. She took vows dedicating her life to God, and that moment, occurring on March 20, 1212, marked the beginning of the Second Order of St. Francis.

KFC Regular Bucket Meal

Me, my mom and my brother went to 168 Mall in Divisoria last Saturday. On our way home, we decided to fetch my niece and nephews at home and we ate at KFC Pasig Branch.

I ordered KFC Regular Bucket Meals, it includes  8 pcs Chicken, 4 Rice, 4 Soft drinks, 4 regular fixins. For extra rice, you need to add Php 50.00 for 4 extra rice. 

I love the chicken of KFC especially hot and crispy,very crunchy and delicious... I love their coleslaw too. What I don't like is the rice, it looks like half  cooked.

Over all, I'm satisfied with Bucket Meal and it's a great experienced dining at KFC Pasig Branch
