We just had our mini gathering at Marco Hotel and we had a great time spending our Bible Study near its pool because it's very peaceful and it has very nice ambiance.
... yesterday especially for me and Gab. After lunch everybody went to famous and the I guess the most adventurous ride of all which was the water rafting. I would have loved to try this as well but I don't mind being with my 1 year old son. There's a lot of next time anyway. So according to them this tiring and challenging ride was a 4 hour fight with the rapids. That was pretty tiring and also they had some cave adventures on the side. This was pretty fun ...
... would consider very little. I think ultimately what it comes down to is, you have to surround yourself with people that bring positive energy and lots of laughter to your life.

So if there's one thing I want to reflect about the people of CDO, specifically the typhoon victims ...
... skills with strangers: offering food goes a long way. So the man was an American and his wife was Filipino.

For our last night, we wanted to see some bands to hear some local music. Unfortunately, most of the bands are show-bands and only play cover songs.

I would love go back to CDO and hear some originals one day.

This hotel is one of the best in Cagayan de Oro, the service is great especially with foods & beverages. The pool is clean and big also the hot pool has nice view. But some of the cottages are very far from the pool & restaurant and you need to walk for a minute. But in a whole, it's nice to stay there.
