Tourists In Our Own Place

Sometimes when the work load are so great and the pressures are piling high, we forget how to live our life. Our minds would scream: hey let me have some space, please! No matter how we push ourselves to still go on with our daily tasks, our bodies and mind would no longer cooperate.

Nothing we could do than surrender to the will of the body. This is the best surrender we could give our tired selves. We need to breath. We need some space. We need to reconnect with our selves and with, of course, our families.

One way of reconnecting is to be with nature; to find some fresh air to breath and new place to get excited about. However, if time could not cooperate with us to go some place farther, we just have to look nearer.

The nearer, the better. And the greater the number, the merrier.

I am lucky enough to be in a place where the tourists go. It’s a simple place filled with wonder and awesomeness.

I have that big dream to be a tourist too in another place. But before I do that I have to soak first in the awesomeness of our place. I got to have that eyes of the tourist, breath the freshness of the air, feel the coolness of the water, embrace nature in all its wonder. And it feels so good to celebrate nature this way with the entire family.

And after such nature soaking and family bonding, wow it feels so good to be at home with spirits renewed and mind afresh. Back again to life’s daily grind but full of wonder and awe.

Have a purposeful day!

Looking Back At South Poblacion

The thought had not occurred to me. That is, how my life has changed so much in the South. Yes, I have literally lived at a village called South Poblacion at the municipality of Larena, in the island of Siquijor. Most of the highlights in my life happened at South Poblacion. I had my greatest heartbreak in that place. I did recover, thanks to my God. Eventually, I met my other half from that village; the one who healed my broken heart and led me to move on with life again. It was there that he proposed to me too. We got married there and started our family. We have been blessed with two pretty boys. After three years of our marriage we moved to another location where we built our own sweet home. But we regularly visit South Poblacion because of my mother-in-law who presently lives there. My husband, too, used to be a barangay captain at South Poblacion. Now, he only serves as a barangay councilor.

It is fun living in South Poblacion. It is located at the heart of town. Actually, it’s only half of the center of town because the other half is called North Poblacion. The place is a mixture of residential and commercial spaces. And the people are all nice.

I am proud to say that our island, Siquijor, is one of the top tourist destinations in the Philippines. At South Poblacion, we regularly see these tourists because many lodging houses are located here, as well as the market and the ATM machines.

If you happen to visit this island may you enjoy your stay at South Poblacion.

Have a purposeful day!
