It’s summer time and we are planning to visit Camiguin islands at the end of the month or maybe early next month. My friends are saving money for this trip and hoping we could make it… (that if there will be no problem on schedules).

Anyway, Camiguin Island is a pear-shaped volcanic island in the northern tip of Mindanao. It is approximately 90 kilometers north of the City of Cagayan de Oro. It is bounded to the north by Bohol Sea, to the west by Macajalar Bay, to the southeast by Gingoog Bay and to the east by Butuan Bay.

Camiguin is the smallest province in Northern Mindanao, with its land area pegged at 29,187 hectares. It is composed of five towns, namely, Mambajao – the capital town, Mahinog, Guinsiliban, Sagay and Catarman. The island plays host to seven volcanoes, including the still-active Mount Hibok-Hibok. According to the National Statistics Office, Camiguin has a total population of 74,232 persons, making the province the second smallest in the Philippines in terms of population.

Among the Province’s major products are coconut, cassava, banana, camote, palay, corn, fruits, coffee and vegetables. Camiguin’s volcanic soil has proved to be a fertile ground for planting various crops. At present, the Provincial government is looking into an agricultural program that would increase the cultivation of fruit trees and vegetables in Camiguin. The Province is also among the best abaca fiber producers in the country. Camiguin is proud of its natural resources, which include sulfur deposits, geothermal energy, agricultural lands and fishing grounds.

We have announced the Honor Roll for this school year and the parents were so happy that thier kids were included on the list. The parent of the first honor student was really shocked becuase she didn’t expect her child to be the first on the list. To her joy and excitement, she asked her husband to bring us 1 gallon of ice cream. The parent of the second honor also brought his treat. We all had fun yesterday as all of us enjoyed all the food that they brought.

Remembering My Graduation

I graduated last March 24, 2004. It was one of the most unforgettable events of my life because it was a day that I was able to complete my course. My school life was not that easy because I worked as a student assistant in the University. That means, I am a working student. I consider it a victorious day for me, because after all the hard work, God gave me my reward.

I am thankful for my mom who supported me all the way. I am also thankful for my boyfriend who is now my husband because his life has always been a blessing to me. I am also thankful for all the people whom God used to help me complete my course.
