Our Mother of Love, Peace and Joy

Standing on top of one of the mountains in Q Park is the 44 ft. statue of Our Mother of Love, Peace and Joy. The statue is so tall you can see it even when your far away from the mountain, though there were some trees covering the sight. I was very excited to see it in person that I just ignored the scorching heat of the sun. The heat was only temporary though because once we got nearer the wind brought with it a cool breeze plus in between the steps were huts made of cement (sorry I don’t know what to call em but you’ll see below what I meant). And I forgot to mention, the number of steps towards the statue is 285 steps, can you believe that. When we were on our way, my grandma couldn’t keep up with me so we have to stop like 5 minutes on every hut.

She’s so grumpy because it was soo hoot!

When we reached the top we were greeted by a very nice and beautiful scenic view of the whole forest/mountains plus the place were the statue stands is like a park same as Luneta Park or any park where a hero’s statue stands but much more sophisticated with the design of the cement and everything just blends in.

On the right of the park is where the big nipa huts are located, they are very big so family or group of friends can fit in. The nipa huts are placed on the side creating a big lawn in the middle that can be a place for picnic or star gazing at night. And on the left side is where the parking lot is. People who bring their vehicles can park there. Near the parking area are houses where a resident lives and they were kind enough to offer as a drink because we literally forgot bring a bottle of water. As in, we were so thirsty. SO in return of their kindness we payed for our drink. They were only kids there watching Eat Bulaga since their parents are out working. Just imagining this kids living far away from civilization made me think of the hardships of going to school everyday. But those things will just be worth it as long as their family is intact, not the same with mine. Anyway, after the drink and some talk we left the place and went back to where the statue is and talk some more photos.
