Hop on to the Year of the Rabbit

  • Page Views 537

  • Welcome to the Lunar Year of the Water Rabbit! On Jan. 25, let’s wish former
    president, the late Cory Aquino, a very happy birthday in heaven!

    Rabbits are cute, cuddly, joyful furry creatures and many believe to be super
    productive, too. They reproduce fast, which makes them ideal to breed for their
    tasty meat. As some breeders have sadly found out, however, we Filipinos find them
    so cute we can’t bear to eat them like chickens, or ducks, or pigs.

    Back to breeding rabbits for having them around as lovable farm animals.

    Now, as a mother, there is nothing more important to you than the wellbeing of your
    child. From the moment your little one is born, your heart swells with love and you
    are filled with a sense of responsibility to keep them safe and comfortable.

    One of the most important decisions you make as a mother is choosing the right
    diapers for your baby. You want something that is going to keep them dry and
    comfortable, but also something that you can trust to protect them from leaks and
    accidents. That is why local businessman Henry Go of Assure Premium Disposable
    Diapers confidently announce “We are thrilled to offer an excellent disposable
    diaper for busy parents who want the best for their babies to keep them dry,
    comfortable, and protected.”

    As a mother, you make countless decisions every day, but choosing Assure should
    be an easy one. These diapers are not only designed to provide maximum comfort
    and protection for your baby, but they are also made with highquality materials that
    are gentle on their delicate skin. Moreover, they are priced competitively, so you can
    enjoy the best quality and performance without breaking the bank.

    Manila City Mayor Dr. Maria Sheilah “Honey” LacunaPangan led the 416th
    celebration of the Feast of the Black Nazarene last week. This is the first large
    public gathering of devotees from different parts of the country since the pandemic
    and it was highly successful and peaceful, with no untoward incidents.
    Congratulations, Mayora Honey!
    The celebrated image of the Black Nazarene originated from Acapulco Guerrero,
    Mexico and was first placed in Intramuros. Devotees express their adoration to the
    Black Nazarene through annual celebrations through a procession called
    Translacion. This was not conducted this year due to the pandemic. This was
    replaced with a Walk of Faith that was attended by thousands of devotees.

    The estimate of devotees who attended the Holy Mass at Quirino Grandstand at
    midnight on Jan. 9 is 92,000. These devotees are believed to have joined the Walk
    of Faith that transpired after. Apart from this number, the estimate of people who
    visited Minor Basilica in Quiapo from midnight until 8 p.m. on Jan. 9 is 514, 000.
    Despite the changes in the way the Feast of the Black Nazarene was celebrated this
    year, thousands of Filipinos still went to both Quirino Grandstand and Minor Basilica
    in Quiapo as a sign of their devotion.

    Mayor Dr. LacunaPangan expected this big outcome of devotees as she is aware of
    how Filipinos express their faith, especially during the Feast of the Black Nazarene.
    Thus, she prepared early for this weeklong celebration that began on Jan. 3 when
    the image of the Black Nazarene arrived at the Manila City Hall. She announced
    details on road closures from Jan. 7 to 9 during her live The Capital Report on Jan.
    6. Details were also posted on the Facebook Page of the Manila Public.

    Classes were suspended in Manila at all levels, and all liquor was banned between
    July 6 and 7. As a result, there were zero reported cases of any disturbances or
    injuries during the Feast of the Black Nazarene. (Reprinted from Manila Bulletin
