How I like not to go with the group. My reason is the peace and order situation in our place and this park is located in a remote province ,Tubajon, Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental.Sometimes I cannot understand the mind set of my colleagues. If I won't go with them, at the end of the semester, there is an evaluation sheet to fill up and one question there is, if a faculty is active in a civic, social and other related school affairs.The feeling sucks.. This Aquamarine Park is said to be very cool and captivating park. I do not know if true. This place where the park is located is 8 kilometers away from the Laguindingan Airport, so far, right? It is so remote . May God protect our way from bad elements. Thank you, for reading my friends. I will leave home for school so early four o'clock in the morning.We base our trip in our university gate, to log. There will be two private vans to ride ,owned by my co-teachers. The image shown here is the Aquamarine Park in Tubajon, Laguindingan,Misamis oriental.

@LadyDuck , yes, very true my friend. We did see tall and seem lifeless mangroves. Mangoves anywhere and water to glance at on the ground level. I also saw some very mall fishes which I fed some cooked rice. They broke my boredom so with my colleagues.It was not a fun, but a disaster.

Well, just pray it will turn out good, your colleague might have seen the place over and over again and now they want to return. Maybe its worth the danger.

@ilocosboy, the place was so far.We passed one rocky and winding road.It was so remote. The sea was not happy to be surrounded by plentiful mangroves making the ambiance so hot.We walked on a very long made of bamboo and rattan bridge to reach our designated cottage.It was so hot and the sea was at low tide.

Hope you have a good time. I can understand your situation , even i don't like some outings with my colleagues but have to. Mostly they plan dinner, which i hate. When we suggest lunch ,they say it's not possible . They opt only for dinner in a restaurant. Which I don't like. . And you can understand the consequences..lol

@prashu228 , we were not impressed, my friend.The place was so far almost 20 kilometers.There is a portion of the road that is so long, winding, dusty and rocky. The place is so hot for it is surrounded by plentiful and tall mangroves. Water was so shallow.Only children swim joyfully.In your case, yes I understand the consequence hehehe.

@rachz_kisses, there was no fun there my friend.It was so hot for the park is surrounded by numerous and tall mangroves.The sea water was so shallow, none swam.Plus, the van driver left us to pick his boss in the airport and came back almost 6, so I called my friend owner of a van to reach our location to pick me and my colleagues. A long the way, we met the van driver.I do not know how he would explain to our program head.

@cacay1 So no trees and all are just mangroves? Sorry that you didn't enjoy your faculty outing. The photo looks promising though. I guess, picture can be deceiving sometimes.

@YrNemo , That is true because of the peace and order situation in our country, plus in our city, Cagayan de Oro City, 7 wanted members of terrorists escaped and assumed to have hidden in our city under the leadership of Atty. Pamatong. Muslim. Until this time they are still at large.yesterday, when we passed some vast bushes, I was so afraid thinking they might stop and hostage us. Huh Huh huh! I thanked the Lord I reached back home safe.

@shshiju,There wa no great time my friend, It was a waste of time and energy.I better did not go and suffer the consequence.The place was so far and hot.It is surrounded by many tall mangroves.The sea water is so shallow. We walked in a very long and thin bridge made of bamboo and rattan just to cross the floating cottage.the cottages are build floating in the sea.

@cacay1 I think evening is the best time to choose. It is true that the long journey to the place and hot in the atmosphere is enough to destroy our mood.

@DianneN , Thanks, Dianne, but sad to say the place was so far and the van driver left us and went back at 5 o'clock, so devastating. I called my friend with a big van and picked me and my colleagues in that so far park.We passed a very rocky and winding road. The agent of that park was so ashamed at us for presenting that no good park.It is so hot aqua marine park.It is surrounded by so many long mangroves that cover the sea and the sea water was so shallow. None swam.

@Kandae11, we were not happy.The place was so far, road long, winding and rocky.The place is so hot for it is surrounded by tall and numerous mangroves, plus we walked few meters away to reach to our designated cottage.The cottages in that park are made of bamboo and rattan and all of them float in the sea.The sea is also very shallow.Only young children enjoyed swimming.
