Warning: Picture overload ahead…
The last time I was on the road, it was for an official trip. We went to two neighboring towns to attend both the Farewell and Welcome Party of the outgoing and incoming Directors in our region respectively.
I was ecstatic before making the trip because it has been years since I last set foot in South Cotabato’s famous tourist spot, Lake Sebu, the venue for the occasion.
Lake Sebu is one of the most preserved watershed in the archipelago.
Before we proceeded to Lake Sebu, we had to stop by at Sultan Kudarat to attend a similar event. The Boss was with us so we simply had no choice.
There are a helluva lot of reasons why Lake Sebu is a special place to visit.
First, it brought me a lot of memories with my previous job when I did community work, specifically giving out Parenting Sessions with the T’bolis in the hinterlands.
Second, it’s known for its natural and cultural attractions that make the trip to this place worth your while. Lake Sebu boasts of its 7 majestic falls and its highest zipline measuring 700 meters deep.
Third, it’s famous for tilapia raising where they take pride in cooking all tilapia cuisines- kinilaw (raw fish cubed and marinated in vinegar or Calamansi juice along with garlic, onions, ginger, tomato and various peppers), paksiw (Filipino dish consisting of fish cooked in vinegar, garlic and salt), grilled, fried, chicharon… name it, they have it!
It’s worth mentioning that chicharon made out of tilapia and the kinilaw were the first ones that were consumed and in a wink of an eye, the plates were empty, LOL! That’s why you can’t see any photos of them, hahaha!
Now that surely made you drool. I am sorry but that wasn’t the intention
Unfortunately, we weren’t able to go to the 7 Falls because we weren’t there for leisure but to attend an event.
Of course, we did some photo takes for posterity sake
I just need to mention that our Provincial Supervisor is my schoolmate in college. We graduated on the same year. He took Bachelor of Arts major in English and graduated with Honors while I finished majoring in Political Science (without Honor but pride all intact, hahaha!). He must be so serious in his desire to become a Lawyer so he enrolled in the Law School right after graduation. I wasn’t surprised when he became a lawyer at such a young age and later on became one of the young bosses in the Commission.
The day was filled not only with beautiful memories of the lovely Lake Sebu but also a lot of learnings about this remarkable job that I had embraced some years back. I hope to be able to deliver the goods as expected of me being a civil servant of the country.
