While in denial, go travel!

While in denial, go travel!

Back when I was a child, I will just close my eyes and dream that I can go places I only see in books and in our black and white Hitachi cabinet television. We do not have books in our home besides Doctors to the Barrios and the Bible. As for the television, it allowed me to see places in black and white. I had no choice and it felt like we are not that rich. I went to a public school, we do not have our own house, we do not have a car, so on and so forth. Still, my childhood is something I am proud of with the little travel luxuries life offered me.

I grew up in Concepcion, Marikina, left by my parents in Santolan, Pasig and San Mateo, Rizal while they were working, at times we went to Cubao for shopping and strolling and trips around Metro, Manila. The farthest maybe Antipolo for church, Victoria, Laguna to visit my father's relatives, Batangas for family outing and Matnog, Sorsogon to visit my mother's relatives. Uhmmm, not bad at all but not quite travelled. It was only in college and up to now that I got the privilege of exploring the Philippines and the World.

As a student of UPLB and member of a cultural theater organization, it allowed me to spend time and perform in
1) Mayao, Lucena, 2) Tumaini, Isabela 3) Binan, Laguna 4) San Pedro, Laguna5) Alabang, Muntinlupa6) Sucat, Paranaque7) Balayan, Batangas8) Tagaytay, Cavite9) Naga, Camarines Sur10) Legazpi, Albay11) Puerto Galera, Mindoro12) San Pablo, Laguna13) Sta.
