Holz (Daily Bread Author) says; Together we stand firm when life's headwinds gust our way together . Does this quote resonate well with you? We have witnessed some nations like South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Denmark who had acted as one in fighting out the global virus. When people from nations are united, they can achieve positive results despite life’s headwinds such as covid-19  that is killing people by the thousands daily. On the other hand, when people from nations seem to be in the blame game, the repercussions are just too enormous. The system that was thought to be stable, strong, and envied has failed.

My City of Pines

After spending some time at home cleaning up whatever is left from my university papers,  and also spending some quality time with Jimboh  ( my 3 year old shih tzu was wondering why all of a sudden he has  24/7 tender loving care).

I thought that perhaps today  Monday was a good day to take a walk along session road and pass by the supermarket for my grocery. Thinking that being the first day of the week and perhaps the afternoon rain will keep downtown more stress free. I was dead wrong and came to realize and accepted the fact  that the city downtown area  during daytime will always be full and congested. The city sidewalk is a challenge to begin with. I had to avoid bumping into the careless texter and even the senior citizens right in the middle of the sidewalk talking about there yesteryears.

Even with Shoe Mart super mall, and by the way people over hear call it SM is not exempted. By 10 am parking lot is already packed. The mall itself  is full as well and you will need a lot of patience to pay over the counters, of which at times i do not have. I had to walk out of a long cue just to buy a small bottle of eye drops. One can easily take note that we are indeed a consumer driven economy.

Anyway, i decided to trek crowded session road, to buy some replacement rollers for my sliding windows from a Chinese hardware located along lower the road. Surprised to find out that the hardware has a two hour lunch break ( 12 noon to 2 pm), very traditional of a Chinese hardware shop (",).  I ended up having a cup of coffee with cinnamon roll at the famous Star Cafe ( my dad's favorite coffee shop) and is still in business operation since the 1950's.  I was hoping I still get to drink their coffee with the traditional thick lip coffee cup.

Since I have been living in the city of pines for about three years now , I am still not accustomed to the snail place. The city without any doubt is very conducive to study that is why it is fast becoming the educational capital of the north. I have been with the University of the Cordilleras for three years and i have had the opportunity to update my academic background. Thanks to  my relatives ( the Salvosa clan)  i was given this opportunity. I am forever grateful. I will always be involved in higher education whenever i have the chance to stay again in the city of pines.

The city is an ideal place for retirement. I notice a lot of senior citizens of different nationalities as residents. Though I am not sure on how the city's urban planning people can solve the congestion as all commercial activities are focused within the central business district. Unfortunately, the congestion issue forces me think twice whether my beloved city of pines and my hometown can be truly be my retirement place. Just to avoid the stressful crowd, i tend to  prefer to stay home located in a peaceful community  located near leonard wood and teachers camp called Brent wood Village.  Camp John Hay which is about five minutes away from home can be a better venue. Walking with Jimboh at the camp can provide a stress free environment, though i can no longer smell the scent of pines.
