By Alon Calinao Dy: I've been to many places in Asia but I could not forget the place where I was born. Many times I ask myself why I always remember this place. There are so many places in Samar that we need to be proud of. There are some virgin spots that we need to be discovered and need to be developed.
Life in Samar is very simple. But people here are so happy about its present condition. Even though there are no wealth in the family, people can still smile and have no worries for their daily income.
That's the big difference between the rich and the poor. The poor can sleep well at night without the thoughts of material things, while the rich can't continue sleeping because there are so many things on their minds.
It is OK to live in Samar. Life here is wonderful. You can visit beautiful and unknown places and you can just relax any time you want.
Samar is a paradise of beaches. People here tend to go out for relaxation during holidays. Usually, they like swimming and water activities like diving and snorkeling.
Aside from the magnificent beaches, living near farms is now more common for people in Samar. Some studies say that there are various health benefits living close to nature. If you don't want the smoke and noise pollution in big cities, then living with natures seems right for true harmony in life.
I know many people want the busy life in big cities since they believe there are many job opportunities that are waiting for them there. I agree. But let's not forget that time will come, you only wish to be with nature and animals to have a more meaningful life.
