New Chapter

Praying the Art of Small Things

For quite some time now, I am preoccupied by anxiety, sometimes because of huge changes in my life at this time, but more often only because of the smallest, pettiest of things.

Siargao Island

We were exhausted from yesterday’s day trip but not too much for me not to feel the 4 AM aftershock from Tandag. It wasn’t that disturbing, and although the thought of experiencing aftershocks while we could be well on our way on this trip might be scary, I was somehow feeling good about our safety while we’re there.

That morning, we woke up at 6 AM, rode the van to Hayanggabon Port, boarded the public boat to Siargao and came there at noon time.

It took me a while before the reality sank in. We’re in Siargao!

When in Surigao: Tinuy-An Falls

From Butuan Airport, we took the 4-hour van ride to Mangagoy, Bislig, where we immediately found ourselves a habal-habal driver, Kuya Don Don. We ate at Ocean View Park for lunch and had a short trip to a doll museum next to the restaurant. By the time we finished, the rain was pouring and I began to get worried if we can still make it to the falls with a weather like this, on  a motorbike, with our backpacks.

“Kaya po yan ma’am, sir!” said Kuya Don Don who also pointed at his motorbike which surprisingly has a roof! Seeing the roof on the motorbike triggered wide smiles on our faces. We went off to see the beautiful Tinuy-An Falls.
