What with the present pandemic, many people felt bored. It took me a long time to feel bored since I'm actually a homebody. I sleep a lot, any chance I got. So not having the chance to go anywhere is not really a problem with me.
However, 166 days have passed since we mostly isolate ourselves from the rest of the crowd and I feel like I miss something. It's not that I just feel like I miss something but the reality hits me:
'What if we cannot see other places for the whole 2020?'
'Are we really deprived of seeing even just a bridge?'
'Can't we really do nothing at all? At all?'
After five months of just City-Work-Home routine, I decided to claim my life back. I asked my cousin to join me in visiting Hugot Road in Loon, Bohol. And she invited her friend Renzo to go with us as well. It was indeed good for our mental health.
For the information of a Non-Filipino person, hugot is a Tagalog word, which became widely used recently via hashtags and shared for fun. It literally means 'to pull out' or 'drawing emotions from somewhere deep'.
People used 'hugot' lines or create a quote or phrase that can be attributed to a 'hugot' out of pain from broken friendships, relationships, failure and some do it for fun.
One example of 'hugot' is "UNTA LAMOK NA LANG KO PARA MAKAPAAK KO NIMO", which means "HOW I WISH I AM JUST A MOSQUITO SO I CAN BITE YOU". :D
This indeed made me smile :)
