Every morning I had the luxury of waking up with breakfast ready on the table. A variety of eggs or vegetables with rice and coffee. My landlady is sweet and kind enough to offer me these things my mom usually do for me. Thank you. I have enjoyed my stay in Agusan del Sur, Philippines.

the season

December might be considered as the holiday season but for me, i consider it as the rainy season. This is the time of the year that you would not expect to be raining so hard- but it just is. Getting maudlin is the norm when you are just too far away from home. I miss the year 2009 when the former Pres Macapagal-Arroyo proclaimed a whole week as her economic holiday. She might be tagged with unmentionable names but she will be forever be remembered as the president who moves holidays.. and will be missed by workers who just waits for the opportunity to grab any non working day for a well deserved rest. I have to get that ticket home

Sometimes, during the day.. i get to stop and think of the things I did for the past months. More than a year has passed and I was given this opportunity to constantly move around and meet new people. In the process, I get to peek into their lives and touch hearts. I just hope that I would not be heartbroken in all these process that goes round and round.

I just wish i could get hugs from my nieces though.. they are and always will be my source of strength and inspiration. Hmmmm... One more wish is that they could travel with me. The smiles on their faces are priceless.

Getting Back

If a traveller is lost.. then he is not a 'real' traveller at all.. since every new place is an opportunity to see new sites and discover new places. Its been two months since my last blog.. and in that two months I've been assigned to two new places. Both places have their own quirks and charm that when I start to look back and remember the place... it just brings back good memories. Just like this one.... The Taoist Temple in Cebu City, Philippine.
