So by 7am, we were already on the road to Digos. Contrary to what we expected, it did not take us long to pass through Sta. Cruz. True, the road is being repaired. But traffic was moving fast.
I love their church. It's open and it's surrounded with huge trees so there's no need for an electric fan anymore. There's free cool air, all around. And their sound system was not so loud, it made the wedding ceremony very solemn and holy....
After the lechon filled lunch at the reception, I walked around the neighborhood. I saw earlier a garden full of "sayote". So I looked for the owner and asked if we can buy the fruits. I was told that it's only P1.00 / each. So I told her that I'll take 20 pcs. I love sayote, I just don't know why. hehehe.. Plus of course, there's Nanay Ligaya. Mama. Pearlie loves it too. So 20 pcs were just enough for us. haha
I would live there, if I could. Think of the fresh fruits and fresh vegetables I could get there. Then, the view of Mt. Apo and the hills, and the valleys... The cool air, the mist and the fog on my skin.. That sounds like a dream to me..
I am glad that I experienced Kapatagan, not as a tourist but as one of them. :) Thank you to the newly weds, Ronald and Shiela. If not for them, I wouldn't have experienced a beautiful day of respite and fun!
