A trip to San Vicente, Santo Tomas....

November 30, 2007 was a holiday and it means no WORK! Yeah!!! Hooray! But still, I went to the office to attend some VERY important stuff… I texted one of my best friend, Cai last night and told her that we don’t have work tomorrow so instead of going home to Davao, I might just stay here in Tagum since I will be going Home tomorrow night, Saturday..

After having lunch with my officemates (Rio &Debbie), I headed to the terminal of Sto. Tomas. The jeepney was already full when I arrived there so I just sat down at the very edge and told the driver to drop me at 'crossing cabay-angan.' I ride a motorcycle to San Vicente, Santo Tomas where Cai and her family lived. We met at their church and they were having their Thanksgiving there... I saw my 'inaanak' Shine, her nickname, she looked different the last time I saw her... She looked very much like her father now... I can see that Cai's happy with her married life and she seemed contented and didn't have any regrets after all the trials that happened in her life...

San Vicente, Santo Tomas is just a 30 minute ride from Tagum City that's if you'll ride a jeepney, but if you had your own car, it would just take you 15 minutes to be there. You wouldn't see any tall buildings there, you'll only see a wide landscape of rice fields, trees, carabaos, cows and other livestocks... Their life there was so simple yet I see contentment in their happy faces... The people there were friendly and nice too... I've been to this place a couple of times already since college days where I sometimes slept there... We were strolling on their place; Cai, Shine and me then I saw a man towing his carabao on the fields, some were busy planting... The view was really nice that I really wished I have my own digicam so I can capture those moments... We headed to their piggery and they had lots of them... on the next pen were goats and thier newly born kids... aww... they were so cute, too bad I don't have any pictures of them... *sigh* and on the next pen were ducks and geese and they have chickens too... It was like I was having my field trip that day hehehe... I enjoyed watching the kids and Shine enjoyed the experience as well...

Her family treated me as one of their members and was so hospitable. Cai's mom cooked 'Adobong Palaka (Frog)', it's not the ususal frog you'll see in the canal or somewhere else but it's the one you'll see on the rice fields... and it REALLY taste GOOD!!! It's my first time to eat exotic foods like that that I didn't mind the other viands on their table coz I was so busy with the adobong palaka (hahaha). After having dinner I slept at Cai's room again with her baby shine. We were chatting and laughing for hours that we didn't realize it's midnight already and I still have work tomorrow. I really missed those times when we stay up late and just enjoy each others company along with my other bestfriends... I don't know if we could still do that now, well.. I just hope so... Some memories are really hard to forget, especially if it's too memorable... But, that's life... we have to move on....

Early morning, I woke up... It's a saturday, I still want to lay in the bed and get some sleep but I still have work in the office so I get up and get ready while Cai cooked breakfast for me... They then had one of their relative to to drive me back to Tagum. On my way there I saw the rice fields again and the sun was slowly rising... the scene was really nice I can still picture it on my mind... hahaha... but am so sorry I don't have any pics of it.. but still I am so glad that I did went to their place, I really enjoyed my one day stay there... =)

Tagum City's not that fully developed, there were just a few malls which unfortunately closes so early at night (waahh), few bars and restaurants to hang-out with. Though I haven't tour around the whole City yet *smiling* Hhhmm... Well, I was imagining what would be my life in the country... Would I be contented with a life like theirs?
