Siuton, Santa Magdalena: Adventure On Mother's Day

One summer day, I talked to my son.

MR:  I'd really like to visit, you know, the world.  Then live in each place for at least a month.

XZ:  Hmn... (playing Minecraft in the laptop)

MR:  But before I'd be able to go and live in each place, I'm already old.  I may even be dead before I get through the list of the places I wanna visit.

XZ:  Hmn... (still playing Minecraft in the laptop)

MR: Okay.  Maybe I'll just try and start from here.  There are beautiful places in Santa Magdalena also.  Then, I'll work my way out.

XZ:  (Stopping from playing Minecraft) I know Mommy that you can't do those things because of me and of time, and of course money concerns... Don't worry Mommy, when I grow up, I'll make sure that you will be able to travel more.   Happy Mother's day!  (Then hugs me).

MR: Whew!  Love you son! Thank you.  You know, my travels are those travels with you.

Awww... mushy!

So, one place at a time...

Here's Siuton, San Eugenio, Santa Magdalena, Philippines.

One word - ROCKY

The place seemed lonely, out-worldly and dangerous.  But it has an amazing view, so we're sold!

The Single Woman 30-Day Blog Challenge (I'm In)

source: the single woman
Okay, I may not belong in this SINGLE category but I know (I believe) I am.  Who's to say?  I'm not married and not in a common law relationship so...

I was spring cleaning Evernote and I read articles first before hitting delete.  One click leads to another, then I found this - The Single Woman's 30-Days Blogging Challenge.  It was way too long ago but hey, let me please!

To clear up minds on my first line -->  I am single but I have a son, he's 10 years old now.  Sometimes I get confused on my status but I always choose single.

Here's the challenge anyway... hope to get through it!  Pray I will get through them.
