The start of this summer’s escapades took my friends and I to the eastern side of Misamis Oriental. We all wanted a budget friendly and fun trip to some place where we can manage to get back home to the city within the day. Going to Iligan City, which is like an hour away from Cagayan de Oro, was one of the options. But going there required a proper planning session (especially with the itinerary because there’s quite a lot of places to go and things to do there) and we didn’t have time for that. So I suggested (or commonly known as just Mantianak Zoo) and they went on board with it. We bought our lunch and then went there last Wednesday.
Last time, I wrote about how important it is to invest on a place you can call your own. For me, that place shouldn’t be just any other place, but something that has tons of perks such as an indoor pool with a jacuzzi, a gym, and a reliable security system that functions 24/7, to name a few. It has to be a place that is not only visually appealing, but also a place where everything you need is within reach.
Once upon a time, there was a silly 15 year-old high school girl who did not write “living independently” first in her list of priorities. All she thought about when asked what she wanted in the future was to buy clothes without looking at price tags and well...getting a car. It didn’t came to her mind that investing on a house or a condo is more important than shopping ‘till she drops and driving around town in a shiny red car.
