Papa’s Kubo

It's my Life, Quezon Province, travel Add comments

I took advantage of my 2-day stay in Quezon to visit the places I love to go to. Ney went to my Tita Lyn’s office early in the morning to see us. Nonet was still sleeping when he arrived. It was like 6AM then. My tita and tito are already awake then. I decided to take a walk with ney and to buy food for breakfast.

We walked through the railroad on our way to the store. I remember the old days, when that railroad was still made of wood. But it has been replaced with concrete few years ago already. The means of transportation is a trolley or iskit just what the local people calls it! :)

The said railroad is from Manila all the way to Bicol. There used to be a passenger and cargo trains that pass by it. But ney said that there aren’t any nowadays.

The picture above is the trolley I am referring to. Then, it was the only means of transportation to get to our barangay from the town proper. Today, you have the option of riding on a tricycle! :)

Papa’s Kubo

On our way to the store, we passed by Papa’s old Kubo. It was built when I was in highschool. Then it was renovated when I was working. It used to be a feeds store. Then, it was turned to a videoke house. You see, there are not much past time you can do there but sing. :)

When my father died, my elder cousin bought it from us and it is now again sari sari store and a fish stand. I had a lot of wonderful memories in that kubo. During summer, my sister and I used to look after our little store and the videoke machine. Ofcourse I had sing couple of songs there! :)

Well, though I didn’t stay long there, I was able to visit the places I wanted to go to and reminisce the old days! You bet I’ll be coming here again and will definitely stay for couple of days!

Ciao! :)
