A House of Sweets

At the heart of Tarlac City is a family-owned restaurant-bakeshop that’s been serving its famous Chicken Barbeque, its undeniably delectable chocolate cake and mouth-watering pastries since the 1960s. 

Urdu Pastries

 

I grew up with Urdu Bakeshop’s pastries and cakes always gracing our family occasions. More than twenty years later, they still have the best-tasting sweets I have ever had that’s originally from my own province.

My Light

St. Michael had always been my favorite of all the archangels. And it wasn’t only because he was God’s army’s commander.

When I was younger, I used to always dream about people running after me and how in each dream, I almost died. Some nightmares those were. My grandma told me to call on an angel if that happened again. So at one time, I called on to him and felt as if I was being lifted away from my “hunters”…until I woke up. And I barely had bad dreams since then. 

This iron lamp is from St. Michael’s Church in Camiling, Tarlac. I have taken interest in it because it signifies the very image St. Michael has for me. To me, he is a light, a guide, a protector.
