I experienced the busiest time of my entire working life for the last six months. Countless are the times I did overtime just to beat deadlines. Countless are the times that I slept in the city because I signed out late finishing my tasks. I realized that I too stick myself in my comfort zone before, making me move as a turtle in the things I am not used to. I could never perfect everything I am doing, but I am thankful I am doing just fine.
Perhaps this could be the reason that on a blank day which I supposed to be thankful for, would come out boring. I am already used to doing a lot of things, rushing in my moves, and beating the seem-very short time.
So, here comes a Saturday that I felt it would be so empty because the team decided to take a breather from all the months’ work, at least. I thought of it the Friday before and I know I cannot stay at home and just sleep because aside from it is not my forte, the warm weather is a protagonist to it.
Timing is on my luck though that my bestfriend will be having her orientation in her Master’s at her old college. So earliest in the morning, we took the first habal-habal as a ride (because we’re nearly late already!) and climb up Misamis Oriental State College of Agriculture and Technology and I tell you, the place is beyond nice!
MOSCAT is located at Claveria, Misamis Oriental that due to its mountainous location, the weather is pretty cold and me as a person engrossed in the warm temperature of the city and even in my hometown, loved every cold that pinched my skin.
I think that it was also a destiny for me to transcend myself in this place because I was reunited to my two old good friends! Isn’t that amazing? I’ve hardly seen them for years! They are the Quirino siblings and they work at MOSCAT as instructors. I met Faith Quirino during a leadership training in Davao back college days! I even blog about it in my personal blog. While Preach, he was (You won’t believe it!) my text friend back high school, and we only met during the day he sent Faith to the airport before we’ve gone to Davao. I am so amazed how I bumped into these lovely people.
You won’t believe it but I accidentally slept here for minutes and the personnel didn’t mind. This place is visitor-friendly!
I was supposed to take a tour around the college, because it is since a long time ago that I have wished to see the beauty of this place, but yeah, some situations would suggest a next time because the hard rain came and broke half of my plan. However, this did not bother me because I really enjoyed my whole stay. Just thanks to all the good people, Vian’s friends – Ate Trisha, Bernadette, Egang, Reu and the rest, for being so accommodating and welcoming. I will surely come back to feel once again the cold and coolness of Misamis Oriental’s own version of Baguio City. Thanks again, guys!
