EDSA Shrine + OOTD

       Staying in a quiet and peaceful place has always been my simple joy. I don’t know, I really felt relieved and stress free whenever I go in these kinds of places. It seems like finding my inner peace and it felt like I am taking a retreat with God, and I am one with nature. It was my kind of chilling out without leaving the city. Quezon City Memorial Circle is where I first fondled this sentiment since it is the nearest “peaceful” place in our house. The second one is in Intramuros which is just an accidental discovery when my boyfriend took an exam on PLM (Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila) situated beside this place.

Little did I know, there is an equally similar place in the heart of the busiest road in the metro, the EDSA. Hooray for another accidental discovery! Last weekend, boyfriend and I went to San Juan City to have my hair keratin treatment at David’s Salon Wilson branch. We then decided to stay at Robinsons Galleria in Ortigas before we headed back to Cubao to meet our barkada. Before we come down from the jeepney, I ask him to take my outfit shot on the EDSA Shrine monument since I was using a sponsored bag from www.chicnova.com. We saw bunch of people coming from a door beneath the monument and wondered what those people are doing from that place. To our surprise, we saw a diminutive shrine behind that door! Darn, we have gone in this city a thousand times yet this is the first time we knew that there is really a shrine under the historical EDSA Shrine monument! We stayed and prayed on that shrine for a couple of minutes then headed to the uppermost part of the place to do the picture taking. 

I was then surprised that a peaceful and quiet place will burst upon us considering it is beside EDSA! I love how ironic it is and I swore that I am now up in the hunt for more places like this over the metro!

What I also love in this place are the quotations all around it! Here’s an example but I failed to make it readable because the rain is falling down already. Anyway, here is what the quotation states:

If my people who call upon my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear them from heaven, and will forgive their sins and heal their land.”
- Chronicle 7:14

Another fun part in this place is its hidden passages that will lead you to stone stairs. This one’s so similar to that in Intramuros.
