Surigao del Sur, Philippines Hidden Treasures

I was born in Tandag, Surigao del Sur, Philippines. It is located in the Eastern Part on Mindanao. It is known for the dusty, poor roads. I never thought that it would be improved in my lifetime! But not until two years ago, when construction of the Surigao del Sur highway started.

On August 5, 2010,I had a chance to have a week-long vacation with my family and the whole Mojica Clan for our first grand reunion. I could not believe that the once considered highway to nowhere is now a first class, well-constructed and maintained highway. It not only improve business and commerce, but also opens the hidden treasures of the province to the whole world.

I once cursed our leaders every time I pass our province and promised myself that I will not be coming back. But that changed now! I am now proud of my province and definitely be shouting to the whole world that Surigao del Sur is truly a paradise worth exploring!
