It was in October 2008 that Dimple and I had the chance to visit Manny’s residence in General Santos City. It was a quick treat for the attendees of the Mindanao Bloggers Summit.
That’s me on the picture wall. Manny was not around but the pictures posted on the the wall of fame outside his home show’s a still-life portait of him so it was still like he was there to entertain us. Many took a souvenir of Manny through this wall.
The huge gate!
The pool that is formed like a boxing glove. That building far behind is his sport building. They said that is where Manny spends time to practice his sport. On the ground floor is the garage.
After this day tour, the daughter and I proceeded to Davao City to spend the night. Our two companions were still in Sarangani and we agreed to meet up in Davao city the next day. I could have the chance again to visit Gen San last November for another bloggers event but it got in conflict with a blogger event that I attended in Manila. If time and money allows, then might visit again this year.
I know this will be a challenging year for me – financial wise. But I won’t stop longing to travel. I guess I feel so weak when I can’t get to travel in quite a long time. Summer is here and surely, soon, we will be going somewhere.
