South Cotabato Experience

Being born and becoming an inhabitant on this province of South Cotabato is such a good luck and fortune, If you are born here too then you shouldn’t be asking why, but if not then I guess I have to give you an idea on why I think and I thought I’m lucky and fortunate to be born on this beautiful province of South Cotabato. there are numbers of reasons that I can enumerate to you why I feel lucky being a South Cotabateneo. The first is that Province of South Cotabato is rich on natural resources of  its different towns. For us exporting products or goods from other provinces is not an option, we have enough here and in fact we are capable of exporting as well, just like other provinces. For example the pineapples of Polomolok are also served on Uncle Sam’s breakfast, not only to Juan Dela Cruz, and not only town of Polomolok, other towns of South Cotabato also has their respective products which serve as their trademark. Town of Banga is known because for their corn, also Lake Sebu is famous for its Tilapia and beautiful lake resorts. This province of South Cotabato is not only proud of its natural resources, also of its people, South Cotabato is a province of peace loving and talented people, the T’nalak woven by the native of T’boli is already known worldwide, and its one of the province pride, maybe that is why our festival was named: ‘t’nalak festival’ –and you should visit us during our celebration of t’nalak festival to witness the rich and colorful culture of South Cotabateneos.

        Even if I was born here and a permanent resident of South Cotabato, there are still places here that I haven’t visited yet(not until I went there) haha. And one of those is Lake Sebu, I got curious about this place when I heard a lot of good things about it from my friends, classmates, and other people. They said it was a nice there, and they really had a great time, the place was so peaceful and relaxing and they’ll definitely come back there. Their said experiences at Lake Sebu becomes my first impression of that place, a first impression that certainly last until now, I have already been there many times, not just more than twice of one hehehe and that is when my impressions becomes reality, it was a paradise before my eyes, you’ll forget your worries and tensions, its really a good place to relax and unwind which I think is necessary for busy persons like… …you? Maybe, hehehe I’m not a busy person, not at all. But still I love the place and I will loved to be misplaced there hahaha missing? Or lost? –haha just dreaming for adventure.

The climate was very cold or rather the weather, but whether the climate or the weather, the point is its cold, very cold, especially when the sun is not present, you better take your blanket or jacket or igloo hahaha with you.

I wonder if Manny Pacquiao could do his training here instead of in baguio and when he refused, then we could invite Antonio Margarito hahahaha he might forget his fight to Manny Paquiao, leave his boxing career and choose to spend his whole life at Lake Sebu, and maybe raise some Tilapia hahahaha I can’t wait to see a punching Tilapia or maybe a punched Tilapia haha how cruel! –too much for the nonsense.
