Tuesday Travels: Bukidnon, my home

Tuesday is once again here and of course I cannot miss the opportunity of writing my entry for Tuesday Travels. The topic for today is your home right now, where you are. And right now, I am in the Philippines, somewhere in Mindanao, actually I am in the heart of the Mindanao.

There are so many places in the Philippines which are beautiful, well developed, have great employment and business opportunities and have a better internet connection(sad face). But then again, I prefer to be here in my hometown, in my birthplace, in Bukidnon.

There are no big malls, tourist spots or even a wifi hotspot here in my place but I am happy and contented. If ever I have visitors, I couldn’t even let them eat in a fine restaurant simply because we don’t have one in our hometown, what I could offer is a cooked meal by my mother. I cannot also let them go window shopping for the fact that we don’t have big malls or small ones but I can bring them to mountains that are overlooking my hometown, and I could let them go fishing in my father’s fishpond near his rice field. There are so many things that people who are living in the city will miss when they are here but there are also things they could here that they could not possibly do in the city.

My hometown is not that remarkable but we are happy and contented living in this hometown that I could not afford to leave it even if there are disability appeal in my place which are or are not approved, I still want to be here. I was born here and I will die here.

This is my share for today’s Tuesday Travels.


  1. Awww Bukidnon! I still can remember the theme song :Wherever I may roam, the distant land to see, i long to go back home………… I love my birthplace, too! I was born in Bagontaas, then we moved to Davao, and then went back to Bukidnon again, sa Talakag where I finished elementary, and then went to Davao again for high school, and finally settled in CDO before moving here to Uncle Sam. Now that we’re here, mura ra japon ug Bukidnon among pamuyo diri kay nature kaayo. 🙂

    Unya, kanus-a man ka sis moanhi diri sa among pamuyo? Stevens Point, WI– The City of Wonderful Water! See you while it’s summer! Lol.
