Very colorful. Are the candles for prayer?

I've taken a tour of your blog and enjoy your take on the day to day life at Manila. Very lively. You captured the spirit of the city very well.

I learned from Carlos Celdran's Manila Tour that these candles are for personal intention prayers, color coded depending on what kind of intention you have.

Red - improvement of family relationship
White - for purity of thought
Pink -improvement of love life
Green - money / success in business
Blue - peace of mind
Black - for enemies (not for them to die but for them to have a change of heart)
