I was on a trip recently to Binalonan, Pangasinan for an outreach program and some business related matters.
It's nice being away from the metro every now and then and just head on up to the countryside.
Usually, when that happens, I go south to Laguna or Batangas.
It's been some time since I went up north and I must say it's quite a refreshing change to see clear skies and well-tilled earth than asphalt and concrete.
I grew up in the country, you see.
I spent my early childhood in Bacolod then the rest of it in Batangas, hence my affinity for the rural area.
