Last December, I was able to book a round trip airfare ticket with Cebu Pacific through their Christmas Sale Promo. It was scheduled last April 17-20, 2011. But I was informed that there were some flight changes, so I had an option to re-book it for a later date with no extra charge.
I'll be leaving for Ilocos Norte tonight. To date, this will be my 3rd solo trip and my 26th province to be visited. The first two solo trips were in Albay and Negros Occidental last year.
Good Friday procession is one of the most attended processions in all church activities during the holy week. In keeping with the centuries-old Good Friday tradition, it is solemnly observed by the Catholics to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ.

Moriones is derived from the word "Morion", which literally means "mask" or "visor". It refers to the colorfully costumed and masked centurions during the Passion of the Christ. Throughout the Moriones Festival, Morions can be seen roaming around the streets of the different towns of Marinduque as early as Holy Monday, looking for Longinus - a Roman centurion who was blind in one eye.
