Kaya naman pala... pang Bridal Car lang... charot! After payments being made, he handed us the "Guide/Map" and there nafigure out ko na how it looks like. and me goes "OK" he said di mo padin alam? jan nagpapakasal mga artista. eh sa hindi eh :P

CALERUEGAnamed after place where St. Dominic de Guzman, father of the Order of preachers was born at Caleruega Spain 

Caleruega Vision and MissionThe members of the Dominican family in the Philippines, called by Christ Jesus towards the fullness of life, envision CAleruega to be home amidst the beauty of natre where pilgrims are open to prayer, to creative transformation, and to Gospel values such as the passion for truth,compassion for humanity, authentic human development, solidarity and reverence for life, and intergrity of creation.

And there I am, making my "first and foremost shot" when he said 'HINDI YAN!"
