Trip to Davao People's Park

July 16, 2013

People’s Park in Davao City has long been there but for whatever reason I never had that urge to come and see the place even after its opening date was publicly announced. It is a typical park for the kids and maybe it is not my kind of place to be. But it’s a different thing of course when I’m around with kids.

 The very first time that I went in was when I escorted my then 5 year old niece, Inah during their Educational Tour last year. That was just a quick visit though. However, last summer I had the same chance when me along with my family were invited to an important occasion in the city.

 [Flashback]

Being there with the kids reminds me of my childhood days. Mom used to take us to the park but with entirely different settings. She would then ask a photographer to take photos of us. We still keep those photos until now.

 Anyway, going back to the present, I realized how much I’ve missed on that very day. We spent about two solid hours of uninterrupted fun time. I would use grippers if I could to keep the kids safe while playing, LOL. While watching the kids having fun playing around, somehow I had this guilt feeling of not allowing myself to recognize the difference. I realized how much I’ve missed – that it is not just a kind of park where I don’t want to be – that it is actually a place I would also enjoy spending time to. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have taken bunch of photos of the kids enjoying their time.
