Literally, it really looks like a big fan. I’ve seen it from pictures, movies and ads. Name it; I had it seen in metaphors. Not until one day, when our family decide to have a trip to the “BANGUI WIND MILLS” I can’t explain the feeling of excitement I have that time; very burst, very sudden. And the gist of it is I can’t wait to finally see it my eyes.
Our way there was not easy; we have to travel HOURS to get there. But it really is worth travelling, far beyond compare. When approaching the area, tiredness and sleepiness has gone astray. Eagerness and excitements has replaced all the negative sensations the long trip has created.
I noticed that I was jumping with my travel buddy; my blue duffle bag, I love this so dearly. And can you notice the white slipper underneath? That’s one of my favorites when travelling.

there it is!
I finally come to see it my own eyes. Lay a hand on it, felt it, and enjoyed it.
Just Imagine how inventors have come up to this Idea, an electric power coming from a big fan, The WIND MILLS as they call it.
Each time I imagined earnestness and gentleness; I always think of something breathing space, something resembling to a rice-field. It gives me this emotion of calmness and peace inside. It adds my time of releasing pressure to my mind and body. A feeling that I sense every time I pass such as this place, just happy!

Going to the area was fun and exciting. We plan this travel just a night before. As to what one of my colleagues said “It’s better to travel this rush than plan it well, it will often not realize” The travel was not that far anyway, I guess It’s okay not to be that planned.
When reaching the area, I can’t help but gaze every angle the place has. Feel the wind blows all over me. Feel the sun touches and kisses my skin. The feeling that I’ve been searching pretty long to miss this much, the feeling of comfort it brings. Unlike the not so concrete jungle place that I’ve been everyday; the place differs in a lot of ways, the sentiment, the judgment and the state of mind.
Heavy sky, bed weather, gloomy day. These are some of the adjectives known when the sky is promising a rain. Waking up this morning is hard, I have this feeling of extended sleeping. But someone on my mind reminds me things to be done, things to be taken care of. Then suddenly, in a blink of an eye…. whoa!!! I find myself doing my routine.
I really don’t know but I love this kind of weather, specially here in our place where solemnity is quite natural. It reminds me of a book I’d been reading where the setting is most likely on wetlands. Reminds me of a feeling that somehow shows my kind of interest….. 🙂
Since I was a child, I’ve always enjoyed going to amusement parks or in local term “peryahan”. I can’t measure the fun, excitement and comfort it can offer me. Until one day, I had given this chance to experience one of the biggest parks in the country, no second thoughts. Though it’s quite absurd to my age to feel this kind of excitement but I can’t help it. Anyone can call me childish or anything, but me? Oh no, I can’t let them get in the way of my happiness or my fulfillment should I say…..☺
A place where hidden sceneries lays, mountain views, rice fields, banana plantation and other agricultural products. Maragusan doesn’t fail to amaze me. Even roads getting there won’t hinder adventurers on discovering this place.
Had to experience dusty means of transportation, had to deal with swaying motion during the ride. But the sacrifice is worth taking when reaching the top. Especially when passing by views that were perfectly landscape by nature.
Hoping that civilization won’t change the way things is. But before time comes that this landscape can only be seen in books and articles, might as well experience it first hand.
