[MyWorld] Notre Dame de Vie Chapel

Since I returned to Manila, my honey and I have been hunting for a new home. Wanting to stay in the same area we've lived most of the past two decades, in the southern part of the city, we've been cruising around, looking at options in different subdivisions.

One day we stumbled on a development we'd not seen before, and this is the sight that caught my eyes.


I've since learned that this is Notre Dame de Vie Chapel, a venue for weddings and other social events. I think another time I'll have to go in closer to see what else there is to discover. But this day we were on a mission, so I stopped with just admiring this large glass dome.

Manila, 2011

I am also happy to report that we found a suitable house and are now fully engaged in packing up our belongings to make the move over the next weeks.

And this is my world at the moment, so I share with the community at MyWorld Tuesday.

Love the dome of the cathedral and what terrific captures! I'm so happy you've found your new home and hold good thoughts for smooth and easy move -- if there is such a thing!! Have a great week! Look forward to seeing pics of your new home!

that is a pretty impressive taste of this structure. the dome is lovely. you should get there someday and report how the interiors look like.

more power to your packing and then unpacking. take time to breathe.

Notre Dame de Vie Chapel is very attractive, Francisca, but way too big for your new home. OK, just kidding. What a big change in your life to move after two decades!

So happy that this is really a chapel. Over here it would be a shopping mall! I wish you every happiness in your move and hope the packing up isn't too arduous.

The building looks a little like something from the future! Very cool dome. Hope you do get a chance to step in there one of these days!

But it seems like you're going to be busy busy busy with your move. Good luck! :D

Halcyon said...

It looks sort of unreal! Like an alien ship landed in the middle of nowhere. The dome is rather nice though. :)

My computer have been making lots of fun, hmm, the last 6-8 weeks, why visiting bloggerfriends have been full of problems, giving comments lots more problems, and latest just setting photos on my own blog not possibel some times. Now - by help - it seems I'm back on the road :-D

All best wishes at/for your new home ;-)
