I celebrated my work monthsary last July 16. Life as a worker is really not easy. With this, I really seek to unwind in a serene place away from the chaotic city. I actually love nature. Because of this, together with my two friends, Pamela and Wendy, we went to Malasag Eco-Tourism Village or famously known as Eco-Village last Sunday here in Cagayan de Oro City. It is situated at Barangay Gusa.
Malasag Eco-Tourism Village is a place where someone would really want to go. Likewise, it is managed by the national government as the office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources or DENR is located nearby the area. One could really witness the breathtaking wildlife.
We really didn’t plan to go this tranquil area. I was the one who called my two friends last Saturday at 5PM since I really wanted to hang out or in Cebuano, “la-ag,” before the hateful Monday comes. It was also a time to pose for lots and lots of pictures. So, I donned my OOTD. Haha.
The last time I went to this place was decades ago, when I was still in pre-school. I remembered that we had our field trip in this place.
We reached the place by riding an RD Gusa Jeepney. At the highway, one could ride a “habal-habal” for Php14. Yet, we decided to take a taxi. We just paid around Php70. At the same time, we brought our lunch and snacks before going to the place.
THE AVIARY AND THE MINI ZOO
I was really amazed by the area’s aviary and mini zoo. I saw several animals and species which I just saw for the first time in my life.
Malasag Eco-Tourism Park is a place that one must truly visit in Cagayan de Oro City. Relaxing and unwinding from the city need not be expensive. One just needs to see nearby the wonder and beauty which our Mother Nature has blessed to us.
