A revisit to Sulangan

A revisit to Sulangan recently made some nostalgia – a long trip of more than 3 hours, waking up very early, beautiful country-side view and driving along the highway with some rough road along the way. This time around, the roads are a bit better, maybe let’s say 20% better. The last time I was there was late last year, these improvements are a very much welcome. Though it still really needs major improvements in some parts. Sulangan is the easternmost town of Samar, at the tip of the province facing the Pacific ocean. It is one of the famous pilgrim sites where the San Antonio de Padua Church has gained so much following through the years. I’ve been there when it was just a small old parish, now it’s in its renovation phase to expand the church to accommodate more people. We usually leave at around 5am, 5:30am the latest. Arriving there just in time for the holy mass at 9:00am, there’s another one that follows at 11:00am. It’s worth a visit.
