Since the event is scheduled during the events I am sure I cannot complete the try outs from partners this year. But even then I look forward to joining this event because it’s a time for IBS family bonding as well as meeting new friends.

Our beloved president’s visit @ AMCI

A “very” long post was gone in a wink of an eye because Mozilla crashed. Stupid of me to write it at the FB status section. lols but grrrrr

I started writing it here with the hope that I will transfer it to my blog once a new page for a new post can be accessed (connection is slow so it’s I cannot get a blank page for a new post.)

Oh well, what i was writing about was the waiting and the arrival of the President of the Philippines in our hospital. The few seconds of waving at him and his team from the 2nd floor annex side door was really a high moment. ha ha ha It made me relate to the screaming people at the street when his vehicle arrived. They screamed more when the President waved back at them. Hearing that kind of scream (i was at the ramps and people were lining at 18th Avenue and the Macky’s area made me ran to the Annex. lols!

I then waved hard from the 2nd floor, when he become visible to were we were standing.  We were kind of happy and giggling but yet I can hear the young police man saying, “ayaw diha mam. diri ra ka taman mam” lols! We were not allowed to go near the railings eh. It’s not me who was waiving. All of us at that area and below us were chanting his name.

After sometime, people were going back to their rooms and the place is somewhat clearing, I told Ate Lucy that we go to the loan at the back of the President’s office so we can have a glimpse of the President at a very near distance. 😀 Result of the move: I was able to wave at him and wished him well and I was able to shook the hands of General Dela Rosa. 😀

Thank you Mr. President for visiting our wounded heroes and awarding them medal of valor to commemorate their braveness and commitment to their duty to protect the people of the Philippines even in perilous situation.

Your visit to AMCI will never be forgotten.

A Quick Stroll at the City Hall Grounds

One Saturday afternoon, I joined my IBS family in going around the town to take photos of government offices for Google mapping.  I cannot forget that day because of what I wore to the “event” lol! I should have been informed that the attire is casual because we will still go out to take pictures. I was thinking we will spent our time at the Chamber’s office to map 😀 Hindi pala. Mag picture lang so…hmmm…I looked funny!

Anyway, from Saray, we took a jeepney to the city hall.  I had several photos taken but let me just share a few.

The famous Anahaw Theater. This place is often use for presentations especially during city fiesta. I’ve never been down there. This was still my second time to really come this close.

Still of the Anahaw Theater (the half part)

“Welcome to Iligan City” It is my first time to see this marker. I never knew this exist. I then asked them, why is this place here? When it feels like it is in the suok (corner) They said that on the way up to the city hall, this side can be seen from the road.

I still have to try though if makita ba talaga.

Next is the way to the Tourism Office. I can say Kamingaw sa payag. The place is close because it is a weekend.

See that signage to Youth Affairs office? I commented on why it’s there and why in a paper or cardboard? They said, it’s a temporary daw.  Then they commented that this particular office is often transferred from one place to another.   Oh well, I hope the place they are in now will be permanent so they gonna have a permanent signage, too.

The playground. We saw a playground right across the tourism office. I bet this is a favorite spot for kids when they stroll in the area. Not just kids actually but for young couplers. Oh my on the couplers or young people dating.

The place is really conducive for dating and if unsupervised lots of things can happen there. No guards roam the area so it is really free zone for those who want a bit privacy in a public place.

I cannot say that the whole place (City Hall) is awesome for tourist but at least it can be a haven for family strolls.

So if you are in the area during weekend, take some time to stroll the whole area. If you do briskwalk, it’s a bit enough to make you sweat.
