Regina RICA, Tanay Rizal: Solemn Sanctuary

 
A prayer place situated in a 13.5 hectares of land, located in the province of Tanay Rizal is Regina Rosarii Institute for Contemplation in Asia (RICA).
 
 
Regina RICA  is open from 8am to 5pm, except Tuesdays. Entrance is free.
 
Sunday mass schedule is at 1130am and 330pm.
 
While there, suggest you eat at the Pasilungan, where they serve resonably priced (approximately P100 for a value meal - rice, one vegetable viand and soup) delicious vegetarian meals.
 
  For those who prefer to bring in their own food, there are "bahay kubos" available for rent. 
 
They also sell Regina RICA products and mementos to raise funds for the continuous building of the community and various outreach programs for the needy. 
 
 
Our travel took about an hour and a half (including the casual stop over to ask for directions) from Taytay to Tanay. 
The way back from Tanay to Taytay took only an hour.
 
The community is not at all difficult to find and asking for directions wasn't a problem either, everyone seems to know where
Regina RICA sits.
 
We were welcomed to a gate guarded by two statues of saints and by a guard who nicely directed us to the site. 
 
Our attention quickly transferred to  a huge statue of our Lady on top of the hill.    
 
A gigantic statue of Our Lady.

Although the community is still under going construction (the church is still half built and there are a number of facilities which have not yet even begun building), already a feeling of order and peace transcend from the place.
 

 
I have taken very few pictures and this blog does not give justice to the beauty of Regina RICA.  You would have to go there to enjoy and feel for yourself the serenity this place provides, become one with nature and with God.

  1. Wahnsinnig schöne Farben und eine Landschaft zum Verlieben. Erinnert mich an ein Gemälde, ich glaub es heisst „Rainy Landscape“ von dem russischen Maler Kandansky http://WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWL66, welches ich auf WahooArt.com gesehen habe. Dort können Sie sich Gemälde drucken lassen oder auch handmalen lassen. Wirklich ein grossartiger Platz wo Sie die gleiche Art von Ihrem Gemälde finden können.

Day 4 in Seoul (A Private Tour : Seoul ~ Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island)

Our Day 4 in South Korea was in the outskirt of Seoul ~ Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do.  As it was a little difficult to reach I contacted, "This is Korea" Tours to customize a private tour for my family.

Andy, our Tour Specialist (TS) cum driver and photographer picked us up at the Metro Hotel at 11am as agreed.  It was an easy ride on board a 7-seater limousine van for our family of 4. 

Our tour was personalized based on what we wanted so long as the entire trip is all within the 10 hours we've commissioned.  For our trip, we've decided on Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island.



SANJEONG LAKE

Sanjeong Lake is situated between Myeongseongsan and Mangbongsan Mountain.  Its name means "as clear as a mountain well". It was built in 1925 as a reservoir to supply to farmlands in Pocheon.


Reached Sanjeong Lake Park early afternoon ~ perfect weather for a cup of hot coffee 

Lots of things to do in the lake park.  We took a paddle boat and walked the lake promenade.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Kingdom Club

We wanted a special holiday with the kids (they are growing up so fast) and decided to welcome 2018 in Hong Kong Disneyland.  It has after all been 5 years since we have last been to Hong Kong.  Though we were recently in Tokyo Disneyland, the volume of guests was heartbreakingly huge ~ to truly enjoy the park.

Check here our Visit to Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea last 2016 >>> Tokyo Disneyland  and >>> Tokyo Disney Sea

We booked a 3 nights stay at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and opted for an upgrade to the Kingdom Club floor.

The elegant service and perks is well worth the additional cost.

Day 2 in Seoul - Part I (War Memorial of Korea, Grevin Wax Museum and the funny Nanta Show)

"Joh-eun achim (Good Morning) Seoul"
Our Day 2 in Seoul is a DIY using Seoul's public transportation. 
After a hearty complimentary breakfast at Metro Hotel, we made our way to Myeongdong Station and headed to the first item in our itinerary.

The War Memorial of Korea
The museum is easily accessible via Subway Line 4 through Samgakji Station, Exit 12.


If you have limited time to tour Seoul and want to see at least one of the city's museums, I highly recommend visiting the War Memorial.  We also visited the National Museum of Korea and liked the War Memorial better.
We spent hours touring the Outdoor Exhibition Area alone. The warships and aircrafts exhibition is truly remarkable. This particular ship is a replica of the Korean Naval Vessel PKM 357, which was involved in bloody naval battle between North and South Korea in 2002.
