Months ago, my friends invited me to go to Claveria. I asked them why I had to go to Claveria where I could spend my days and nights at home. The physical distancing regulations and the stay-at-home policies were underway, and these rules compelled me to remain immobile. Of course, I was afraid that police officers would catch me in the open when my only reason for going out was to have some fun. I knew police officers would be mad at me knowing that I would only find places to enjoy while the rest were struggling and suffering from the crisis. Besides, fines, once being caught, were high. As a result, I had to stay at home and waited for the COVID-19 pandemic to subside.
Conversely, the pandemic has been plaguing the country and the world as well. It has been pushing me to extend my patience. It made me feel even sicker and more bored than usual. Some of my friends back home died because of depression, mental torture, and stress. Without anything on a table due to no food, no job, and no medicine and without any support from the government, some of my friends perished. They died in vain. Even if the national government and the local government helped the people, there were a few officials who failed to show compassion and humanity. They supported their rich friends, or they only helped those people whom they knew. Anyway, I should move on to the present situation. I had to change my perspective in life. I could not turn back times, and we have been in this together. So, I took my chances to go outside and to enjoy just a little bit. I put my face mask on, wore my eyeglasses, and packed all my traveling apparels. Then, I contacted other friends to fetch me. Here they came. With their traveling garments on, we rode in a rented van going to Claveria to try to eliminate the stress and unwind just a little bit.
Traveling has been fun. It seemed that my friends and I just traveled back in time. While traveling, I let go of my musings that evoked my childhood experiences. However, I managed to return to my realities when other friends told me that we were in Claveria then. Yes, we were in Claveria. With more than a few minutes of traveling down the road to Claveria’s main site, we gladly reached it. Then, we head to Janopolan Nature Spring and Pool to Jaco’s Stopover, Claveria View Deck, and then awesome place Don Narciso Café. I felt impressed and overwhelmed seeing the panoramic view. Claveria’s mountainous site and its cold and freezing atmosphere permitted us to get off the van. So, we stopped right there, ordered some delicious and nutritious food, and got amazed by the splendor of the overlooking and mountainous area.
Additionally, Don Narciso Café has been awe-inspiring. Its food service, food taste, and view did, however, spell magic in me. I just loved the food and the vista that other tourists adored. In the back of mind, I realized that the province of Misamis Oriental constantly charmed those local and foreign travelers with gripping tourist attractions. This province gave vacationers some stunning sites that showcased eye-catching destinations for travel. Just like other provinces and regions, local businesses and local governments worked hard to promote their provinces. This time, the management of Don Narciso Café thrived in promoting Claveria and Misamis Oriental as well. As a result, numerous motorists and holidaymakers, who took Route 955, could stopover at Don Narciso Café for breakfast meals and snacks. As well, Don Narciso Cafe served some pasta, loaves of sandwiches, cups of coffee, and smoothies, as well as other cold drinks.
At this point, going outside to breathe and inhale fresh air helped us survive from boredom and depression. It even made us feel alive again. The COVID-19 pandemic has made us vulnerable to emotional and psychological illness because we just imprisoned ourselves in the four corners of our rooms. Psychologically, the physical distancing guidelines and the stay-at-home policies have made me ill. Some of my friends have just died because of depression, heart and panic attacks, and stroke. For me, I had to save myself. I had to go outside to breathe fresh air in the mountains. Since Don Narciso Café is open, I have to remove my boredom and stress. For all of us, if we considered that going outside would be beneficial, we could go to Don Narciso Café at Route 955, Lanise, Claveria, Misamis Oriental.
Furthermore, we could cherry-pick the best food they served:
Finally, we can go to View Deck and then head toward Don Narciso Café for more than two-and-a-half-kilometer ride. It meant that we could have twice excitement and fun. If we wished to contact the owner, we could dial their mobile phone dial at 0917 708 5025 for possible booking and reservation, perhaps. Regardless of where we were, we could go directly to Claveria by using Google Maps, simple as it would be.
