Heyy lovely person who managed to find this blog 😉 – wink wink-
Gunung Wakid is situated in Kampung Sunsuron Tambunan and is currently popular amongst hikers and tourist.
On 31st August 2k16, my cousins (Eyoy@Daeryll, Daneo, Moses and Shawn), my brother Kodom@ Clarence and I went to the journey to climb the Gunung Wakid. Shawn who acted as our personal guide to lead us until we reached the top of the first hill of Gunung Wakid.
We departed from our home at 8 am something and reached the hill around 11am something. 😆
As for me, it was my first time ever to climb the hill even though I am the local for almost 19 years. To tell you the truth, it was a hell of a challenge! I tried giving up multiple times along the way. But I pushed myself to my limit until, taadaaa! I reached the top! I was so proud of myself. Even though it’s just Gunung Wakid, but I managed to fight until I reached the top.
To tell you guys, hiking is no joke. It takes strong will and stamina in order to finish it.
So, here’s some pictures I took along our journey..
“Reaching a goal in life is just like climbing a mountain, there will be plenty of struggle, sweat, tears, and pain. But after all those things we’ve been through, we will feel accomplished and relieved, just like the incredible feeling we get after reaching the mountain top. -N. Ezza Tom@Bibi- 4th November”
All Souls’ Day commemorates the faithful departed. In Western Christianity, this day is observed principally in the Catholic Church, although some churches of the Anglican Communion and the Old Catholic Churches also celebrate it. The Eastern Orthodox churches observe several All Souls’ Days during the year. The Roman Catholic celebration is associated with the doctrine that the souls of the faithful who at death have not been cleansed from the temporal punishment due to venial sins and from attachment to mortal sins cannot immediately attain the beatific vision in heaven, and that they may be helped to do so by prayer and by the sacrifice of the Mass (see Purgatory). In other words, when they died, they had not yet attained full sanctification and moral perfection, a requirement for entrance into Heaven. This sanctification is carried out posthumously in Purgatory.
The official name of the celebration in the Roman Rite liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church is ” The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed “Read More Here.
This evening, I went to the graveyard together with some family members to light up candles. I was looking forward to this the whole day, probably cause I really want to do this annual thing.
So we lit many candles on my grandparents’ grave and our great grandmother’s grave and some of our cousins’ grave.
Trully, it was a beautiful sight as thousands of candles were lit that time.
