A spontaneous road trip with my sister Rachel and her husband Melbert to Kidapawan City. The two wanted to visit a friend over lunch, which was around 2 in the afternoon at an Italian restaurant, and left after two hours. As much as I would like to show photos of people, I'd rather keep them in my other social media account (Facebook) and post these two photos which I took during our way back to Davao City.
It was great to experience such a spontaneous trip. The spontaneity of it was: my sister knocked at my door while I'm still sleeping, told me to get ready for a road trip to Kidapawan City. It's my first time to wake up to that. And it's amazing. :p
For the sake of making the trip much more memorable, I instantly thought about writing down notes while on the road which is inspired by my aunt who does it almost everytime they go out of town. So here it goes:
10:30 - 11:30: Davao City
11:30 - 12:30: Stop over at Shell, Toril. Bought snacks (Pinasugbo, Mr. Chips, Water, and sanitary napkins). On our way, while still in Davao City, I realized that it was the day prior to my menstruation day schedule (and I'm sorry for sharing this but I guess it's funny to remember this in the future, lol) and I felt that maybe I am already to it. Good thing, I am always carrying an extra pad with me. Haha! Passed by Sirawan, BInugao District, Tagabuli where I saw beautiful views of green mountains!; and Digos City where Alicia Keys' this girl is on fiiiiire played over the radio on the exact time we entered the city.
12:30 - 13:30: Stopped to buy delicious and fresh Bibingka along the road. On to our journey, we passed by an elementary school which has some vegetables growing in a big enough garden in its front yard. Amazing! Passed by Sinawilan, Bansalan where I saw beautiful rice fields, and Makilala.
13:30 - 14:30: We arrived in Kidapawan City! We had lunch over at Capellini Restorante with their friend and her daughter and brother. We ordered different pasta: spaghetti, carbonara, and (mine was) pomodoro; and chicken meals. Stayed for two hours just talking about anything under the sun.
16:30 - 17:30: Drove back to Davao City.
20:30: Finally arrived home safely. :)
It was a great getaway that lasted for almost a day. Yay for spontaneous road trips. :) Also:

here is a photo of me and my sister with a guy who almost seemed shocked at something behind us. Or maybe he wanted to make a wacky face, too.
