dumaguete city at night;
i immediately alight the bus after asking the bus conductor if the one i pointed-out was quezon park. again another stamp site unforgetable adventure, at 1830H, of course tourism office inside the park was closed. i asked the guard on duty how can i have the stamp on this night since i have to leave dumaguete early in the morning the next day. this guard couldn't help me out so i decided to seek help to the other guards in the cityhall which is only infront of the park. without hesitation, this 3 security guards on duty moved in haste by texting the employee they know who has the key. at 2130H, i have my lakbay rizal 25th stamp and my first time having at this night time. thanks to this helpful filipino's, mabuhay kayo !
