September 1 is the "Araw ng Cotabato" day. We celebrated the day of our province with a festival, the "Kalivungan Festival". Each town must have a representative in the street dancing. My alma matter in High School represented our town. They had been rehearsing everyday, day and night. Some of my former teachers had already been asking for donations to fund the expenses of the practice and for the props. They performed their street dance on the day of the festive. Unlucky for me, I wasn't able to watch it. It was Thurday and every Thursday I attend the prayer and fasting. Also, the construction of our small building for guest is still on process that I have to assist my husband in the preparation of the food of the carpenters. I totally missed the street dancing presentation for the Kalivungan Festival but still I knew the result of the contest. Our town, Pigcawayan, got third place, Pikit is second and Alamada won the contest.
I am officially not enrolled for the second semester in my MBA class. Our request to open first semester subjects was not granted by the registrar. This means that I have a lot of free Saturdays wherein I could leisurely stroll wherever I wanted to go. I would still have to follow up my grades in my academic writing subject where writing research papers had been the final output. I am anxiously waiting for the result of it because I am not confident with the output I submitted. Since I have no class every Saturday, I do not have to worry any academic reports, assignments and other requirements. My Saturday schedule is very much available for any trips or outings with friends and family. There had been a lot of rejection of invites before because of the conflict of schedule with my MBA class. Now that I am free from academic activities, this Saturday’s planned schedule to have a road trip to the southern part of the Philippines. I was never been there before and
