I could not seem to recall when was the last time I visited the K of C drive. The K of C drive is a place for friends, lovers, broken hearts, sunset lovers and some more. The place used to free, now they are taxing two pesos per head upon entrance. Vehicles are not allowed anymore inside (except for vendors) and there's a cottage rental at 100Php. As I approached the gate and asked the lady when did they start asking for fees, she replied 3 years ago. Has it been that long? I could still remember we go down and take a dip in its waters when we were bored during a hot summer afternoon. I could still remember running in the midst of the street and shout, "the hills are alive..." even though there were no hills around us. I could still remember us cousins playing a "seesaw" in the water using a "salbabida". Ours were made from patched up old truck tires. I could remember our eldest cousin as he swam further and further into the horizon and wished I had the same courage to brave the waves, the current, the seaweeds and to whatever that lurks below these waters.
Still, I could not find myself when was the last time I was here.
