Clark Museum, Pampanga

Our new plant is located inside Clark Freeport Zone since 2014, but this was the first time that we have visited the Clark Museum.

The museum is divided into 4 galleries showcasing old artifacts, local products, history and present status of Clark.

But the best part of our trip is the 4D theater featuring a 20-minute documentary of Clark’s history.

Entrance is free for ladies and children and P200 for male visitors. Opening hours is from 9:00-4:00 Tuesdays to Sundays. 4D show schedules 9:00 and 10:40 in the morning and 1:30-3:10 in the afternoon


Minor Basilica of Our Lady of Manaoag, Pangasinan

This was my second visit after it was raised into a Minor Basilica last Feb. 17, 2015. But I have visited this church a couple of times already since my father originated from Pangasinan.

This time I have noticed the statues piled up at the entrance of the church. This made the appearance of the church similar to the churches in Rome.

The façade of the church is also newly painted but the altar and the place where the image of the Holy Rosary is housed stands the same.

A Roadtrip to North Luzon with my HR Group

Our HR Group planned an out of town trip last August to visit Manaoag Church in Pangasinan, Kart City in Tarlac and Clark Museum in Pampanga.

 We scheduled our trip on a Saturday and left Manila early morning. We arrived in Manaoag before lunch and had our brunch before attending the mass. We left Pangasinan past 12nn.

1

Our next stop should be the Kart City in Tarlac. We were supposed to exit Hacienda Luisita (as I am aware that there is an exit if you’re coming from Manila) but I did not know that there was no Hacienda Luisita exit if you’re coming from TPLEX and we should have made our exit in Tarlac instead.

 When we already saw the Clark Exit sign did we learn about the Tarlac Exit so we end up having our late lunch in Clark then we went to Clark Museum afterwards.

St. John the Baptist Parish Church

We went to St. John the Baptist Parish Church the next day and attended the Sunday Mass.

Commonly known as Calamba Church, it was founded in 1779 and located adjacent to Jose Rizal’s house.
