Bicolandia

4 comments


Finally nakarating na rin ako sa amin sa Bicol. Matagal ko na ring gustong makapunta dun. Hindi rin ako maisama dati kasi delikado raw ang daan lalo na sa Bitukang Manok at sa Sta. Elena, Camarines Norte.

It’s nice going back to your roots. Makilala mga kamag-anak, get together baga.

Malayo pala kami sa Mayon Volcano. Akala ko naman malapit lang. Bale sa Vinzons kami, Sitio Mancawayan to be the exact which is a few kilometers away from Daet, Camarines Norte. Tanaw ang Bundok Bagacay.

Okay sa Daet, pero parang town proper rin lang ng Muntinlupa. Sa Vinzons naman, puro bukirin. At malamang mahirap duon ang transportation dahil bibihira lang ang jeep at tricycle. Buti na lang, kasama naming yung isa kong uncle na may sasakyan.

We left San Pedro, Laguna around 9am on February 11, stopover for lunch sa Gumaca (ang ganda ng Lamon Bay!) dumating kami ng Daet around 4pm na.

Given an opportunity, mas gugustuhin kong manirahan dun. Magsaka ng palay at magtanim ng gulay. Leave everything here in the city behind. Life is much simpler there. Yun nga lang, walang internet. Sa Daet meron.



Contrasting kasi yung place ng Lola Lina ko is a two-storey house. Tapat nila is yung malawak na bukirin. I never got the chance to fetch water from a water pump, take a bath on a makeshift cubicle. Parang nasa Manila rin. And they were very hospitable. At ang sasarap ng pagkaing Bicol. Buti na lang mga Bicolano kami hehe!

Yung sinantol, ginatang papaya, mga isda lahat sariwa and yung iba hindi ko na matandaan ang pangalan. Haha!

Hindi na namin nalibot ang Daet kasi kulang na sa oras. Napaaga ang alis namin, imbes na February 14 (Wednesday) ng umaga, February 13 (Tuesday) na ng umaga kami umalis. At maghapon ng Feb. 14 natulog lang ako dito sa house sa tindi ng pagod at puyat sa biyahe at lamay.

Na-postponed din ang libing gawa ng hinihintay nila yung isa kong auntie na manggagaling ng Switzerland.

Tuwing May 19 ang reunion sa amin sa Bicol. Sana maisama ulet ako ng auntie at uncle ko. Week-long festival din yun. Baka makapag-hands on pa ako ng pagsasaka. Oh, how I wish! Here’s hoping!
