At this time of the year, many other colorful flowers including my favorite lily are in full bloom! Depending on the season, you can even pick some strawberries from the strawberry farm.

Brgy. Aningalan is one of the more quiet and cooler places in Antique. If you want to connect with nature and have some adventure in the highlands, here you can visit the Igbaclag Cave and Stone Castle.

Adults and kids sorted through their catch for the day, which they later shared for dinner. A simple and joyful life. Nature provides as long as humans care for and respect God’s creation.

Waiting for the sunset in the coastal community of Brgy. Dangcalan in the town of Hamtic, we saw a woman catching bangus fry in the shallow parts of the sea using tools with a net.

“Lignum vitae” is Latin for “wood of life.” Its name is derived from the medicinal benefits of Lignum, a type of wood that is indigenous in the Carribean and northern coast of South America. It is known for its extraordinary combination of strength, toughness and density.

Lignum, a ritual observed by Catholics in Bugasong, Antique where sacristans roam around town as “apostles” carrying the Holy Cross for residents to kiss then praying for each house visited. The residents contribute any amount to help support the religious tradition.

Words to reflect on: “You call me 'teacher' and 'master,' and rightly so, for indeed I am. If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another's feet. I’ve given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do."

♻️ 21 Luntiang Pilipinas Partylist Environmental protection, climate change adaptation and disaster resilience should be the core issues in the 2019 midterm elections because these affect our basic human rights—food, potable water, shelter, decent livelihood and life itself.

Some were not so fortunate. A small banca brought to the shore fisherfolks from two fishing vessels without catch after spending overnight in the sea. Today they go home to their respective families with nothing.

Fisherfolks of Pandan came in with their haul from a night of fishing. Their catch for today is swordfish or liwit, as locally called in Antique. They sell it for P150/kilo. A whole liwit, which is about 3-ft in length is about P300.

Over the last 20 years, Sen. Legarda has advocated for peace and has urged the government to resume peace talks. "We all desire a just and lasting peace. We may have different views on how to pursue national development, but I believe we can find our common ground,”she said.

Major Buan was kept in captivity for 21 months in the jungles of Oriental Mindoro. His release paved the way for new peace talks with the government.
