It is my second time around, enjoying the rapids of Cagayan de Oro River.My first time was on Rizal’s Day (December 30) of year 2005. Yes, I am paddler. Not yet a certified one, but a struggling neophyte. I have to applause at myself though, for bravely making the “graduation rite”. Jumping off from a big rock (as high as a roof-top of a bungalow)! Such an adventurous day today. I love everything about it, the scorching heat of the sun, the ever-so-green trees, the water striders, the chirping birds, the cool waters, just everything.
There are six adventure companies operating in the same area. Each has its own promo. Anyway, I just want to spread the news that CDO White Water Rafting (the pioneer) is having a promo for the whole summer. From Php.1, 200/person, they have it at a discounted rate of Php.500.00/person for the beginner’s ride (of about 3 hours) with fourteen (14) rapids to enjoy. Enjoy the summer!!!
Oh by the way, don’t forget your sunblock or else, you will be like me. I am red as a lechon (roasted pig) now. Suffering from second degree burn is not good.
On the other side of the fence….
Seeing parishioners parading to the church, I felt a guilt feeling. How could I forget about going to church? I know, I know. It’s awful. I am simply awful. Yes, I am a non-practicing catholic. It’s very unbelievable for a choir member (during my younger years). During my pious days , I went to church almost whenever there was a mass or a religious celebration..or even a “pahina”. Now, I am nowhere to be seen. But I do not forget to silently pray, in which case, more than always…when I am happy, sad or worried.
