February 6, 2013 - At 1:00PM Hubby called up and asked us if it's possible for us to be at Malaybalay Bukidnon before night time. His father was in death bed and probably waiting for his grandchildren to arrive. But our car's two tires were dilapidated and very unsafe for long driving. I brought the car for a tire change first, and at 5PM we're still in CDO.
We postponed our trip the following day (February 7, 2013), because I'm not familiar with the Bukidnon highway. It was my first time to self-drive from Cagayan de Oro City to Malaybalay, Bukidnon. It took me 3-hours to reach our destination, considering the unfamiliarity and road conditions.
The weather was good and the clouds were neat, I asked Joy my son's yaya to take pictures of the clouds using my mobile phone.
Our little prince was having a rest in one of the bargain boxes of Gaisano Malaybalay, while I'm selecting/buying white t-shirts to be used by the immediate family during the burial.
Because according to the oldies, we're not allowed to take a bath at the house were the wake is. So every morning we went to husband's older brother house to take a bath. The little one was so busy playing around with the unhusked rice grains.
Unhusked rice grains were also being dried at the back of my parents-in-law's house. The little one loves to play with them.
The house was full-packed with mourners, family, relatives and friends. No matter what these two little boys were peacefully sleeping inside the room.
After the burial, we left Cabanglasan at 11:45AM February 13, 2013 and headed straight home to Cagayan de Oro City. I was the one driving again, because hubby had to stay for a while until the 9th day. I needed to report to office the following day, I had no choice but to self-drive.
The photo above was one of the delays at Bukidnon Highway because of road repairs. The irony was it was an uphill part of the highway, we stayed there for 15 minutes. My foot hurts from stepping on the brake pedal, hand brake was not enough.
At 3:22 PM, we finally arrived at the Puerto overlooking. I pulled over for a while and took a photo of the calm sea of CdeO. Yes! It's CdeO already!
I survived the 4 hour drive from Cabanglasan, Bukidnon to Cagayan de Oro City. Thankfully the weather was very cooperative.
