Baliuag, Bulacan

Baliuag, Bulacan

This place may not be my favorite place on earth but it is where I often go to unwind. This is where my friend Jr De Guzman lives just right across the University of Baliwag annex building.

You can go to Baliwag you can take buses like 5Star or Baliwag Transit bound to either Baliwag or Cabanatuan and ask the driver where you could get off going to Baliwag. The fare costs about 75 pesos from the Cubao terminal of Baliwag transit.

I got off the bus at the city center where the St. Augustine Parish Church stands I don’t know how old the church is but I think this is a post war church.

There’s also a statue of the virigin Mary inside the church compound It faces the plaza that locals call glorieta.

Beside the glorieta stand the Baliuag clock tower which is the only self-supporting clock tower in Bulacan. Baliuag is also the place where the first ever elections were held in the Far east on 1899

During the holy week you can also catch a more than an hour long procession of images of saints showing the life and passion of Christ.

Baliuag Clock TowerWe rested the whole day eating in their “Carinderia” and lounging in their garden. We didn’t really notice that it was already night time. So right after dinner we decided to stroll around the town.

We found this “lugawan” or “Congee food shop” near the churchand what makes it unique is that it is housed inside an old cinema. After eating so much lugaw and talking the night away we decided to retire already and headed home.

Morning came and we decided to go to the local cemetery. As my friend said you want peace and quite? Okay ill take you to peace and quite hence he took us to the memorial park. Funny as it may seem but yeah it was really peaceful and quiet.

It was odd to find someone selling pizza inside the cemetery so we bought a whole box and ate it there. We were thinking who would buy pizza in a cemetery, and after a few thought I realized hey, we bought one. lolz.

I guess it’s really a good thing to go to local cemeteries as it completes your journey as you learn the life of how people live in a certain place by seeing different architectures. It completes the journey.

Love the rows of trees lining the rows of mausoleums.Back at home my friend’s mom was making a client’s order of about less than a hundred packs of spaghetti. It looked really fun so we helped some in making the packs

After making we delivered the orders to the client which we found out that she will be distributing it to street children in the town as a pledge for the Christmas Season.
