Last Friday, we went to Ahmadi Church to watch a Santacruzan. Here are some of the photos we took.
Santacruzan participants line up for the short parade. If you wonder who the man in brown cloak represents, that's Methuselah.
If truth be hold, I think the organisers of this Santacruzan was faithful to this list of characters in a Santacruzan.
Youngsters who played various characters in Ahmadi's Santacruzan.
This is the first Santacruzan where I saw an Aeta character featured in the pageant.
Reyna Esperanza who represents the virtue of hope.
The legendary founder of the true cross, Reyna Elena, accompanied by Constantine, her son.
Angelic-looking girl who is one of the Ave Maria's.
Santa Maria, madre de Dios at the end of parade -- carried by Filipino leaders of various Pinoy organisations in Ahmadi.
Father Fred Micua, the Filipino priest at Our Lady of Arabia in Ahmadi greets the faithful.
And then, I spot this gentleman. Hmmm...Is it Ever? Maybe not.
Or maybe, I'm right.
(Ever is a Kuwait-based Pinoy artist-cum-blogger behind Pamatay Homesick and countless articles for POC. He is also a member of Pindot, Kuwait's premiere Filipino digital photographers' group).
