The Wedding in Cagayan de Oro City

My first adventure for this year was spent to a travel north which took around 10 hours drive from Davao City to Cagayan de Oro City. Together with family, relatives, and my brother's friends, we traveled and had seen beautiful landscapes in Northern Mindanao, Philippines.

We went to Cagayan de Oro City because my second brother, Junjun, got married to Anna. She is from the north and so my family got to see her relatives and stroll around the city as well. It's my first time in Cagayan de Oro and I have no photos to share except for mostly on-the-road ones. Too bad.

The next day, Junjun and Anna got married. :)

The next day, we decided to visit Divine Mercy Shrine before heading home (another 10-hour travel).

Every girl must wear a skirt before going up. Good thing there were skirts available for rent. After visiting this spectacular sacred place, we traveled again going back home. I wish I took photos of the city during the night. It's a crowded city but fun especially at night. If I could go back next time, I'll probably do a documentation, seriously. :) Anyway, it was good to be out of town for a while and witness love on the first Saturday of the year. It's a good sign. This year will be a better one! :)
