Every time I get to visit a place for free, I always thank my mother company for the opportunity. That is one of the perks a corporate employee gets. On March 15, 2015, together with a few of my colleagues flew to South Luzon, particularly Laguna for a one week company sponsored event. The activity may be very tiring but at the same time fun and healthy. Because it was a sports competition for the benefits of the employees and a sort of bonding and getting to know each other for the employees in the corporation who are assigned in different areas in the Philippines.
So sum it up, a week of fun + the extra fun because we stayed inside the 2,290 hectare Nuvali (Eco City Development), Sta. Rosa, Laguna. And when you are in Nuvali there are a lot of things you can do and enjoy, and among those, are stated below; Our very own checklist.
1. Stay at the relaxing SEDA Hotel
Because we were there on official business, we were booked at the renowned Seda Hotel inside Nuvali. It was actually my second time to stay at SedaHotels, the first one was in Davao. Seda Hotels are pretty much the same with their other branches, they offer clean, comfortable, and relaxing stay + plus the delicious buffet breakfast. Because the hotel is located in the middle of the vast land of Nuvali, it is the most convenient place to stay if you want to try the rest of the activities mentioned here.

I remember my brother who used to be a fan of the heavy metal band,the Metallica back in his college days. I remember how he skipped snacks just to save money enough to buy cassette tapes and how he loudly played them over and over that really irritated me, who prefers soft music.
He was an avid fan of the one of the greatest guitarists of all time none other than Kirk Hammett. Kirk Hammett has been an active musician since 1979 and in his 36 years in the industry he made great contributions and even made collaboration with musical equipment manufacturers. One of which is the kirk hammett 15, a powerful yet portable amplifiers for guitars. It is a combo practice amp with clean and override channels that you can use at home.

Believe it or not, it was our first time to do the Visita Iglesia yesterday. Although I heard about it but have not done the practice. All I remember during my childhood days back in our hometown Zamboanga City, we usually do the station of the cross at the Abong-abong, Pasonanca.
Originally, excerpt from Wikipedia;
The Seven Churches Visitation also known as Visita Iglesia is a pious Roman Catholic Lenten tradition to visit seven churches onMaundy Thursday. On Maundy Thursday of Holy Week, following the Mass of the Lord's Supper, the Blessed Sacrament, the "bread" of the mass, is laid on the Altar of Repose in the church for the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. During the Seven Churches Visitation or VisitaIglesia, the faithful visit several churches – sometimes seven, sometimes fourteen, sometimes no set number depending upon the particular practice – to pray in front of each church's Blessed Sacrament.
Although the practice of Visita Iglesia originally done after the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on the evening of Maundy Thursday, many Catholic devotees does the practice before the mass or the early hours of Thursday.
