Touch of Grunge

Are you familiar with Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden or Alice in Chains?
These are Grunge Bands who became so famous in the early 90's.

Here in our country, there a lot of Independent grunge bands who are really talented.
My husband's band, WOUND is one of them.
Almost every month, they gather together in one place to share their music.
Last Saturday was a big event for them where almost every independent grunge band in the metro unite... of course I was there to support them.

Since it's grunge... I need to blend in and dress up but still keep my soft and sweet side.
Grunge is more of the checkered polo or skirt, skinny jeans, floral dresses and boots, Dr. Martens or Chucks... I chose Floral Dress + Chucks for this event. :)

A visit in Quezon on a Holy Week

Did you ever experience the Holy Week traditions in the Philippines?
Did you hear about the "penitensya" (penitence/penance) where one do self-flagellation and at times even have themselves nailed to crosses as expression of penance or thanksgiving for a granted prayer?

I grew up as a Born Again Christian, we don't have such traditions, 
so I never saw anything like that until now.

My husband's grandparents live in Quezon province where the Catholic community practice such. I went there this year (April 2014) with my husband and mom-in-law and witnessed it for the first time (but not the crucifixion).

We went there on a Thursday after picking up his mom in the airport.
After an 8-hour drive, we got there at 11:00pm already.
