Kublai Millan is absolutely Mindanao’s pride. His works are currently showcased in People’s Public Park in Davao City and the family-owned hotel Ponce Suites. Want larger than life artworks? He’s the man to look for!
Energized from our much-deserved coffee break in Mt. Apo Hillside, the group went straight to the Agong House. I didn’t search online about it so I didn’t really know what to expect.
Lovely weather. We all walked slowly towards the famous park where the works of Kublai Millan is showcased. The first-timers were in awe on the first glimpse.
Aaaaah, the ambiance that I really need! I walked on my own while the rest were busy taking pictures. Every character I meet along the way are actually reminders of specific moments and people that are important to us:
For the first time in months, I am in a place where there are no temples, beaches and ruins. I can only hear the laughters and camera clicks. I just love it here!
Here’s the photo of the famous ‘Agong House’:
After taking some pictures of the quirky characters, I sat in one corner overlooking the park. It’s nice to see my companions happy with no complaints or whatsoever. This stopover is timely at the eve of my 25th birthday.
For one moment, I closed my eyes and thought of the things that are important to me – my family, friends, health & ambition. I took the opportunity to pray silently and thank Him for all the blessings he had given me. I don’t need to go to Church to talk to Him.
I’m glad that I am with some of my favorite travel buddies. I bet that all of them felt relaxed and at the same time think while they’re in this part of the Agong House:
We also took the opportunity to check the inner part of the Agong House and took more pictures (as always!)
We left the venue before sunset. Good way to end our Kapatagan trip, but our way back to Davao City is quite challenging due to the fog. 0_0 Instead of feeling scared, I slept right away 😛
Have you been to Kapatagan, Davao del Sur? Make sure to visit the Agong House!
