I was privileged enough to be invited to see their Fiestang Kuliat. After taking on that trip and seeing this video (which gave an LSS to a number of us), I understood why this is home and what makes her truly proud to be a Kapampangan.
Upon reaching the tollgate at the Angeles exit, I asked the toll person for directions on how to get to the Museo. "Just go straight," where's a Marauder's map when you need one? Go straight I did. And just as Christine's instructions said, there's this BIG church, that is the Holy Rosary Church, with its towers shining on a bright sunny day. I guess I won't be needing a search party after all. The church can be seen all over the city, thus, making it a good reference point of your current location in the city.
After the welcome troop, came the welcome food (of course).
Finally got to see Christine!
I've enjoyed going to museums, and I haven't been in one in years! Having Kim around makes it enjoyable as history is presented in a more interesting way.
Museo ning Angeles is your typical museum with dioramas and other old things filled with history.
Next on our itinirerary is a trip to the Pamintuan Mansion. Although it's just located near Museo ning Angeles, we were offered to take the kalesa.
The museum has arranged for us a menu of different dishes from what is considered the best in the land.
I cannot say that spending half a day has made me fully immersed in the culture of Pampanga, but definitely I am one with them in saying...
