Pretty cool, huh? I was able to visit several places in Luzon, way back in high school, by attending press conferences (nyehehe, those were the days; I really thought I’d end up as a journalist.) and other extra-curricular activities. I’ve been to some places in the Visayas region – hey, I was born in Antique!!! My dad brought my mom to Antique in time for my birth, but we moved back to Manila when I was about three months old. However, in the Mindanao region, I was only able to visit one place: Iligan. And that was 12 years ago. I really loved that place. I saw Maria Cristina Falls for the first time. Tinago Falls was so beautiful, it so rightly deserved its name – the hidden beauty. And the lechon was to die for.
Baggy and I have always talked about how wonderful it would be to see more of the Philippines – but sadly, we always seem to run out of time whenever we go home for vacations. There’s always next time. Sigh.
Anyway, here’s hoping that I get to improve my pathetically low score of C- somehow, someday.
So how’s your score? 😀
