My wifey and I took this trip to our beloved province since we are not confident we can come home on Christmas day. We left Pasig at 130am, dropped by RBC area to buy meds and pay for some bills, then pick up my dad in Paranaque.
We left Paranaque around 230 am. By 730am, we were in the intersection of Andaya (former Quirino) Highway, trying to decide if we are taking the said route or take the Bitukang Manok (which would’ve added another 2 hours extra). We took the former only to find out that the first 30 km was just a moon ride – full of small but wide area of pot holes! The rest of the highway was relatively smooth, especially on the side of Camarines Sur. The supposed-to-be 1.5-hour trip extended to 2.5 hours.
