I spent the long (holiday) weekend in my hometown. Just so you know, I am a true blue Batanguena. I came from a small town called Cuenca and spent half my life in a tiny barrio which is literally on the foot of Mount Maculot.
I studied in a semi-private high school. Its been 11 years mula ng huli kong makita ang karamihan sa mga highschool classmates and friends ko. Hindi ko alam kung bakit hindi pa nagkakaroon ng grand reunion yung batch namen.
Two months ago a classmate contacted me. Mag-reunion naman daw kami. Ako daw ang mag-inform at magsabi sa mga classmates namen kasi kapag sya baka wala na naman daw pumunta. Masipag kasi sya magpa-reunion, ang problema konti lang ang dumadating. Last time nga 6 lang sila eh, hindi rin ako nakapunta hehe.
Since it's a long weekend at Undas, I scheduled the mini get together last November 2. Marami kasing umuuwi sa probinsya pag ganyang okasyon at long weekend pa kaya sinamantala ko na para magkita kita kami.
Medyo marami ang nag-confirm pero konti lang kami na totoong nakarating. Yung iba kasi nasa ibang bansa, yung iba may pasok kahit holiday, may deadma lang, may nasa malayong probinsya, yung iba phone patch na lang at yung iba drawing!
We decided to held the reunion at Mt. Maculot View Resort.
Mt. Maculot View Resort was a pioneer in my hometown among its kind. Though small, they still have exciting amenities like the activity tower and zipline. Meron silang 3 pools, one for kids, one for adults and a private one with jacuzzi. You may want to check out their site for more info. Let me tour you first on some parts of the resort through these pictures.

|Pasaway kami sa hanging bridge. Two person at a time lang pala ang maximum load limit. Buti na lang hindi bumigay yung bridge, ang lalaki pa naman namen.|
We arrived there at 2pm and paid 180 each for the entrance fee. At dahil generous ako I paid for our cottage, mura lang naman. Pot luck ang food. I brought tasty bread and spaghetti.
At dahil may swimming factor, yung iba ay nagsama ng chikitings. Inggit much na naman ako.
Among us na nakasama ako na lang ang single. Kaya may times na hindi ako maka-relate sa kwentuhan nila about asawa at anak. Haaaay sana next time maka-relate na ko.
By the way, I want you to meet my Bes. She has been my best friend since 4th year highschool. Iba kasi ang set of friends ko from 1st to 3rd year kasi ilang beses din akong nalipat ng section. Pag umuuwi ako, minsan sa bahay nila ako natutulog. She and my mom shared the same date of birth. Inip na rin sya mag-maid of honor sa kasal ko.

Meet the boys and girls of then, IV-Molave. 54 kami lahat sa section namen but as you can see sa pictures wala pa kami sa kalahati na nakarating. Our section was third from the top and we are called Molavians. Fourth year sections were named after the trees.

Nung magdidilim na pinauna na nila umuwi yung mga kids. We opted to stay until 10pm. More kwentuhan about each other's life, about sa mga kalokohan nung highschool at syempre ang mga crushes at dating love team. Konting inuman at sobrang daming kulitan at tawanan. Ang sarap lang alalahanin ang highschool life. Being in highschool was one of the highlights in my life. Remembering each and every part of it always makes me smile.
|nakikita nyo ba ko?|
Until then Molavians!
