Dahilayan Adventure Park of Bukindon

Dahilayan Adventure Park of Bukindon

One of the finest places in the Philippines is Bukidnon. Fresh air and so much beautiful view that could be considered as one of a kind. This was our Dahilayan Family-Trip and it was just full of fun and happiness. We rent a jeepney for this trip and to tell you that truth, jeepney is not a good idea to rent for because of the rocky and dusty road going to this beautiful park.

Because sissy and I already experienced the Zipline, we only let mom & dad to took the adrenaline feeling. We brought food and had a picnic moment at the Forest Park, the cottage is already inclusive in the entrance fee. There are already tons of activity to-do in the forest park alone so it is okay not to take rides (well, at least for me), sulit kung baga.

One day I’ll be back here and will take more adult rides. 😛 I hope you enjoy our not-so-cute-little-bonding. 🙂

Not My Usual Thing → Horoscopes

I am a ….

Despite your best efforts, you are not coming up with the answers you want, either in your work life or in a romantic situation. There is only so much you can do to get to the truth right now, and you might need to get comfortable with the fact that it will be elusive for a while. Turn your attention to other matters, and keep yourself distracted with things that make you feel successful — like your favorite hobby. Your brain needs to feel that progress is being made somewhere.

From Yahoo

Hmmmm ….. Checking horoscope is not my thing. But I came across to my yahoo page then scrolled down and hola! Found this. Well. No comment. Couldn’t disagree.

Kaamulan Festival

Kaamulan Festival

Kaamulan 2012

You guys know that I’ve been struggling lately with my A.K.A busy schedule. Last week, I mention about Kaamulan Festival. Yes, I’ve been in Malaybalay for 2 nights and 2 days and of course, I left CDO with my friends making sure that I celebrated my mom’s birthday! 😀 That shouldn’t what I missed, right?!

with peri, the others were at the back 🙂

Uhm, what’s funny while we were still on the bus, there are a lot of thoughts coming in my mind and I can’t help it. So I asked my friends if they have some paper or something that I can write on then they told me: ‘Shira, we’re going to Kaamulan to enjoy not to do some school stuff’. (teasing me..really 😛 ) Well, writing is been so attach to me. Why I’m so eager to write? Well, who wouldn’t if you see this?

see?

I swear! It’s hard to get the perfect view while on the bus! 😛 Took it from my phone, sun is setting! 😉

We arrived at Malaybalay past 8 pm, traveled for almost 5hrs. Jeez, my butt quite sucks. LOL. Bus fare doesn’t sound bad! We stayed at Meriam’s aunt house at San Jose but before that, we stopped by to her other aunt’s house at Carvahal to have some dinner. Meriam’s dad was staying there and jeez, he is so accommodating. Palamine Family are accommodating!

the girls who made it 😀

Meriam’s aunt make pizza! Homemade .. yaYks!

We woke up around 6 am, fixing ourselves then head to the city to watch the street dancing!

hola

I belong to the flowers, am I? 😛

Mini garden of the house! Beautiful, isn’t?

Unfortunately, we arrived in the city late so we only saw the last three or four of the participants.

Walking with “Kadang-Kadang” you need a balance and focus. One thing to do this is practice. Jeez, I don’t know how to walk with that. Back in HS in our P.E, I didn’t have a chance to try it, the bell rang! LOL

There were so align , holding arm to arm!

Eagle! Flying high?

After the parade, sweet corn escapade! 😀

At first Peri, Sara and I hesitate to buy cos we were still full at that time we had a heavy breakfast but Meriam and Hana simply made us lick our lips! LOL

I went down after we back home for awhile at Carvahal! 😛

Suddenly I got tired, didn’t know that I took a nap 😛 and when I woke up, jeez… legs cramps! Then the girls decided to go back home to San Jose to rest a little bit cos there will be fireworks display late at night.

Unlucky gals!

Whooo… okay, we ride ‘Multicab’ going back to San Jose and we were lucky, at the middle of nowhere… flat tire dude! (“Flat tire get tired” ~ Tongue Twister for you guys 😛 )

I love the Nature 🙂

But heck nooo, we were stuck in the beautiful area. Nature around us! 😀

The lady in grey, standing next to meriam it’s Chimbe. Meriam’s cousin!

hmmm, cos the first multicab was stuck we waited for another vehicle. T’was a bad experience because the driver deceived us, ladies. Cos we were not that familiar yet going to San Jose, we asked him to drop us in Luardo(landmark) but he didn’t. So the gals needed to walk 10-15 min under the sun to the house, we start walking(sweating much) 😦 but surprisingly driver hurried up to still catch up us and you know what he said to us? “Hey you should take a ride, Luardo is still far from here”! Damn dude, O.O we were really disappointed! Obviously, we’re going to pay again for that ride! It wasn’t money but how he treated people who are new the place is what matter most!

Ehem 😛

Okay! Night comes! 😀 Honestly, fireworks is what we supposed to wait at night but there’s a change of course. We were early indeed in Plateu 😛 We only got a glimpse to the beautiful fireworks 😛 Dang! LOL

Saturday night was fun, really.

What we experienced at the daylight was opposite when I and Meriam heading home to San Jose. There’s a guy name James. There’s no multicab yet and it was raining, not that heavy tho enough to make us soaked in the rain but not that much so he offered us a ride. Kuya_James is so kind. We ride in his motorbike and we were supposed to pay for it but he didn’t let us to give him even a single penny! Wow. Thank You so much Kuya_James for your kind heart! 😀

Peri and I 😀

Among the girls, only Peri and I weren’t able to come to Kaamulan last year and the three gals always telling us that there’s an amazing spot there! And here it, I forgot to ask Meriam what’s the name of the place.

I love greens!

too far 😛

more closer ~ loving it 😀

I Love Nature! Live Naturally, Shira! Treehugger! 😀 😀

Before we head to the terminal, we took our lunch at Carvahal. I’m not a fan of Chicken Curry but dude, Palamine family cooked it well and I’m loving it much now! Whew…

Happy Blogging Everyone!
