"Diwata ng Lahi" in Butuan

Balangay Diwata ng Lahi finally arrived in Butuan City today at around noon. Team Balangay docked safely at the PPA port after braving Typhoon Urduja on their way to Cabadbaran from Surigao earlier this week.

Docking at PPA

A big crowd of mostly students and government employees gathered at the PPA port to welcome Team Balangay. After the welcome ceremony, the team was whisked off to Almont Inland Resort for lunch and a press conference.

Later this evening, Mama, Kuya and I had dinner with the whole team at Aling Cora. It was a historic day for Butuan!

Today is Papa's 2nd death anniversary. Too bad Ariel is not around to spend the day with us. We had simple dinner at the Doongan house after mass at the cemetery. We had a bit of a family drama earlier in the afternoon but all is well now. I miss you Papa!
