Chasing Sunset in my Hometown – Palompon, Leyte


They said, wherever we will be, wherever our feet and our dreams will take us, we will never forget the place where we came. Hello, everyone. Welcome to another episode of Jamiz & Idz. And today, I visited again,
my beloved place, here in Duljugan. There has been a lot of changes here in our place,
compared to before, when I was still a kid. Before, we used to have bumpy roads. But now, not anymore. People before don’t mind to walk a long distance. But now, many of them have vehicles already. Others who don’t have it, choose to ride with a fare. But some still prefer to walk. And I am one of them, especially if I want to sweat out. It’s a wonderful feeling. Where are you going? (local dialect) We had lunch at Columber’s house. It’s a wonderful feeling when you roam around here. Some people will call your name on the road, you have a breathtaking view of the surroundings, and fresh air. Do you see that? Mommy Ida, is that Mount Magsanga? I think it is Mount Magsanga. Because of these simple observations,
I can say that there is a big improvement here. What is wrong? Ken, do you know if where is that going? No. Where?
There? Ahm, there? Ahuh. That part is heading to Ormoc. How about that? Where? That part? If we are heading that way, it’s going to Isabel. After almost four decades since I was born,
there is a big improvement or difference here in our place. And because of that, there are many things I really missed. And I can’t find it in other places. When I was still a kid,
my best friend and I used to came here
and had fun in throwing small stones at the water. We love the sound when the stone hits the surface of the water. On this side here, this is where the boats will dock, from Palompon, and Isabel. If you can see, there are many boats because most of the people here are fishermen. That’s why there are many of them here
because it is the docking station. By the way, during Yolanda, a few years ago, last 2013 this water raised about a few meters. Because of Duljugan, its elevation is low. So the people that time moved into higher places for safety purposes. Check out the beautiful sunset behind me. Right? Our sunset here is really nice. Or in Palompon, we do have a beautiful sunset. See? This scenery is one of my favorites. The sound of the pumpboat, and the silent movement of the water. Wow! And, that was a glimpse of what we have here in our place.
There are still others who like to walk, you can still ask for some Moringa at your neighbor, Good afternoon.
That is good for fish soup. It is just Moringa. and we still have native guavas. But we improved.
Maybe, you don’t appreciate how beautiful this place. But for the people who came from here, it will always be a paradise that we love to visit, wherever we are in the planet.
