Ahemm.. here we go. I was born in the Orchid City of the Philippines - Dipolog City. I grow up near Dipolog River, which explains why i learned to swim at the age of 2. Back then, that river was still blue-ish and still provided the people lots of fish. When i came back to that same place in November 2008, my beloved river looked so rusty and muddy. Argg.
I lived in Dipolog for 14 years... then my family relocated in an equally beautiful place called Pagadian City, my Dad's hometown. *_*
Pagadian City is known for its weird motorela. I find it creative. It was in that place that i had so much of fish cuisine, and it was in that place when i realized i have relatives - i have people to be called "my cousins". I missed that in Dipolog. There was this girl who shared the same middle name with my maternal grandfather - I asked her to be my cousin and she said yes. My teacher commented, i do not think you are cousins, even if you share the same family names, you do not necessarily have to be cousins. Ouch. I grew up saying, Pagadian is better, because i have all my cousins. And yeah, its true. Its a lot more fun!
Ok, so much for that. :p i have to sleep now. I will write some more when i wake up *_*
