CATEEL IN FOCUS (Holiday Break Trip)

Here are some of the photos I took during the two-week holiday vacation I had in my hometown of Cateel in Davao Oriental. Yes, I opted to spend my two-week Christmas break there instead of spending it over elsewhere. This is the first celebration of Christmas and New Year after that horrifying Typhoon Pablo that hit my town in December 2012. I am just so happy that I was there with my family and townsfolk celebrating the season of love and giving. :)

One of famous landmarks of Malaysia is the PETRONAS TWIN TOWERS. And as always said, your trip to this beautiful rich country is never complete without marveling at this grand structure.

The Petronas Twin Towers are twin skyscrapers located in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. They were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 until surpassed by Taipei 101 but they remain the tallest twin building in the world.
