Sundays @ the Park - LOVERS

I am a practicing Catholic. My family attend mass every sunday. Sunday is always a family day. Since our chapel does not have regular mass, we usually attend mass at Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage Parish downtown

OLPGVP for us in Gensan is located in front of the Public Park. Now that it has been newly renovated more people go and visit the park. Loners and groups. Young and old. Happy and Sad go there. It is so nice to do people watching there as they somehow unveil their life story.

I will be having a special mini-series of Sundays @ the Park posts with features pictures of the week.

This time I'll be making a special on Lovers at the Park.

Enjoy the Spring of Love and Youth, to some good angel leave the rest; For Time will teach thee soon the truth, there are no birds in last year's nest!

-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

They say, as people mature, they also grow tired of expressing their emotions especially when it comes to love. Noticing the captured lovers, they all are - young lovers. You will rarely see older people going out and expressing their love publicly and obviously you will rarely see them sitting sweetly  in one of these park benches or walking holding hands. Such a sad thought. Is love for the young alone? Or the elders have better things to do than making nonsense public display of affection?

Here's another famous love quote from a famous Beatles Member  for my take:

Love is a promise;
love is a souvenir, 
once given never forgotten, 
never let it disappear.

~ John Lennon

Spread the love everyone!


  1. Hala ka uie... ka-sweet.

    I wish I could squeeze in some time in my schedule to stay in a park and do nothing.

    But if I'd only see scenes depicted in the photos above, I have second thoughts. Hehe.

    Thanks for this. Nice post.

  2. Hello! Could you post the Sunday Mass schedules of OLGVP in GenSan? (all of the available masses for the day) We're a group of tourists visiting GenSan and hoping not to miss our Sunday mass too. Thanks a million. :)
