CDO Vacation: Enjoying Xavier Days

Hi everyone! I am very sorry for leaving this blog deserted for quite a while to give way to my  much-awaited vacation in Cagayan de Oro City. Visiting CdO has been in our calendar for a few months already. It was not actually a grand vacation because  hubby was left behind at home  but  nevertheless Bella, Macky and the rest of the family including me  had  a wonderful and memorable sojourn in Cagayan de Oro.

I could not compress in one post what I have experienced  in my two weeks stay  in CdO but I will be sharing it to you one by one in my future posts. My long vacation includes shopping, decorating and cooking for Yoshi's birthday party, a pool party, a college reunion party, dinners and lunches  with family and friends and of course party and wandering at my beloved Alma Mater during the Xavier University Festival Days.

Another unforgettable part of my visit during Xavier Days was the chance to have a long bonding time with one of college best friends  in her Siomai Station at the Soccer field inside the University. Of course, it gives me an access to eat unlimited siomai. I will make a special blog post  about Ludy's Siomai in my foodie blog later.

It really  feels great to be visiting my Alma Mater and enjoying its festivities  after 12 long years. I saw a lot of  improvement especially on its physical structure. Another thing that surprised me was the way the students get in and out the University because of their security and ID system.

Looks like scanning for an MRT ride.LOL
The students will have to scan their ID before they can get inside the campus and  scan again  before they can go out. There was this big TV screen  that flashes the face, the name and ID number of everyone who scans. Hi -tech eh? Lol!

That's all for now friends. Thank you for keeping this blog alive  for the past few days. I will be returning the favor real soon.


  1. hey rovz, buti na lang din pala at di mo sinama si bren, dahil hindi ka sana nakakuha ng free hug from a college dude. hehe! hi-tech naman nun school. i remember inabot ko din yung barcode scanning ng IDs namin nung college ako sa UST, pero para lang sya yung mga scanner sa grocery, hindi ganyan na parang turnstile sa MRT. hehe! post ka pa ng pichurs at happenings mo sa CdO. aabangan ko yun ah. really glad that you're back in blogging. na-miss ko ang mga kuwento mo eh :)

  20. Uy! Finally at may kuento na tungkol sa bakasyon mo Rovz. I have been long waiting for this even before I left for Zambo.

    Good for yah, you had the chance to bond with old friends. I never got the opportunity to go visit my Alma Mater here because of my hectic schedules. But hopefully, one day, I will. Kala mo naman ang layo ng location ng school ko, LOL!

    Uy ha! Sobrang hi tech nga ng ID system nila. I wonder if other schools in the country do it the same way. Matagal na akong di estudyante eh, hahaha! I feel ancient, LOL!

  21. Ancient ka na? Panu na lang ako? Hehehe... Unang bugso pa lang ng kwento ito sis... There's more to come. Hanap pa lang ng time...
