Family Trip!

The most unforgettable memoir I have in my life was when the whole family got together for a pleasurable trip. This is one of our good ways to have a better, and not bitter, relationship with my whole family .

Since my sister and her boyfriend visited us and stayed at our house for two days, they planned to visit Esperanza, Sultan Kudarat. This is the second time that they had visited the place and I wasn’t able to join them during the first visitation, as, I am obliged to report to our office to finish some significant documents. So, I decided to cancel the first trip which upsets me, because I just stayed at home alone.

Well, the whole family decided to visit again the place since my mom and our adopted son were presently there for a vacation. It consumed two hours of our travel from General Santos City to Tacurong City to Esperanza, Sultan Kudarat.

At last, our trip made us safe and sound in this place.

For 33 years, the old house,and not to mention it's monstrous ambiance, was still visible and unfortunately it still is good for keeping tenants. My last experience in that house was when my late grandfather was buried in the same place- or maybe, just maybe, inside the very core of the building. Since I was too young back then, I didn't mind those people who were crawling and laying down on the earth till the earthquake stopped- as what I've remembered, it was M 7.9. A huge question mark was perhaps circling my mind at that time.. When I was fifteen, my mother explained the what happened during that disastrous phenomenon.

I want to share with you some of our pictures with my lovely family.

After we finished our dinner, we visited our cousins (mom's brother's son) in Villamor, and they offered us "BALOT" an egg of a duck. They incubate the eggs for 16 to 21 days then they boiled the eggs till it was cooked. The whole family likes the "BALOT" Yummy!!!!

Do you want to taste it?'s too delicious and yummy!!

See!! we are concentrating eating the Balot...

There are only four balots left..And see the four ladies, it seems that they could smell their mouth after eating the balot, they ran just to brush their teeth...with smiles.....

Before leaving in the morning we took some pictures with our relatives' children.

Me and my 52 years old uncle Martin.Then, we dropped by for awhile to my mother to pick some fruits from the tree of Santol.

taking pictures with the carabao...

Then, the family decided to took the kids to Del Rio located at Koronadal City, we stayed there from 9:00 in the morning till 3:00 in the afternoon.

In this place we continued the family enjoyment.
