The trip took about 4 hours from Olongapo through SCTEx and TPLEx. We paid toll fees from Olongapo as follows (one way):
(SCTEx) Tipo Entrance: P22
From (SCTEx) Tipo to TPLEx Entrance: P294
To TPLEx Exit: P235
When we got there, the security isn't allowing any vehicle to enter except for those who will have their cars blessed after the mass. Unlike before, the queue starts outside the vicinity of the church and they have to wait there until the blessing starts. We parked our car at the side on a pulic lot where we were charged P50 parking fee by the staff of the barangay hall. They did issue a numbered temporary receipt.
Anyway, there weren't as many people unlike the last time we visited. Probably because it's an ordinary Wednesday and it was raining. We also get to stay long at the prayer hall where we can kneel and touch the image. We attended the mass and lighted candles before leaving, too.
My weakness is on essay writing and that makes me nervous but I've done what I could and still pushing some more. All that's left now is to know whether it is for me or not yet.
