Discovering the Marguez Hot Spring Resort in Esperanza Sultan Kudarat

Last September hubby and I turned 30 years old. My birthday was Sept.6 and hubby's birthday was Sept. 4. We celebrated our birthdays during our family vacation in Mindanao. We're so blessed because we are able to celebrate our birthdays together with my family. Mindanao is one of our gateways for our family bonding and after 16 years, finally, we're bound to my homeland.

Before hubby's birthday, my parents planned to celebrate in one of the famous Hot Springs in their place which was located in Esperanza, Isulan, Sultan Kudarat near a mountain.

Dawn of Sept 4th, hubby and I woke up with the beautiful birthday serenade rendered by my family. It's our tradition in our church that every time someone celebrates his/her birthday, we organize a serenade for the celebrant. After the serenade, we had our morning coffee fellowship with our family.

Paano ba Umiwas sa Temptation Habang Malayo ang Husband?

Karamihan sa mga mag asawang Filipino ngayon ay tinitiis ang maging malayo sa kanilang asawa o pamilya mapa-babae man ito o lalaki upang mabigyan lang ng magandang buhay ang kanilang pamilya. Maraming mga mag asawa na kahit masakit man ay kailangan tanggapin ang paglayo ng asawa sa kanya at pikit mata nalang tiisin ang pagkakalayo nila.

Ang tao ay hindi perperkto, kahit saan kahit kaylan ay pwedeng magkamali. Higit sa lahat walang marriage na perfect lalo na sa mga mag asawang magkalayo. Maraming nangyayari na hindi natin inaasahan dahil sa ating mga kahinaan.

Hindi rin natin masisisi kung bakit may mga mag asawang naghihiwalay dahil sa "third party" di rin natin alam kung ano ang kanilang mga dahilan o mga pinagdadaanan. Marami nga ang naghihiwalay na araw-araw na nagkasama at nasa malapit lang ano pa kaya ang nasa malayo? Kaya wala din tayong karapatan upang humusga sa kanila kung di naman talaga natin alam ang kanilangmga naramdadaman.

Ano ba ang gagawin ng isang asawa upang makaiwas sa temptation habang malayo ang husband?

5 Things We Did in Davao for A Day

After 9 months of contract on board, finally my husband arrived home. After 1 week of rest he started with his training for his Marine Engineer license and thank God he got it after one month of training.
After 3 days we packed and prepared for our one month family vacation in Mindanao.

We all know that Mindanao is under Martial law. Marawi is just starting to get back on its feet and Cotabato is one of the places that's always on alert. Sultan Kudarat, on the other hand, is always in the news of bombing and of course the City of Misamis Occidental is one of the highlighted red alert before we left in Manila because of the killings of the Paroginog family and company.

In spite all that, we continued our with our plan to have our family vacation. " If there's a will then there is a way".
