Summer at Funtastic Island in Gibitngil

I’ve heard of Gibitngil from my UP Cebu freshmen friends since they had an NSTP community outreach on that island. It’s in Medellin where the people in the community don’t have their own tap water (only one, at the Mayor’s) and their electricity is solar panel-generated (which was Earth-friendly!). It was my first time to hear of the name of Funtastic Island; I didn’t even know that it was located in Gibitngil.

First off, the spelling of ‘Funtastic’ is incorrect. Well, I had that confusion at first when I tried to Google and spelled it as ‘fantastic,’ only then I realized it’s Funtastic (please don’t let me explain that they’re trying to link fun and fantastic, but there I said it already).

Memorable Dates
August 22, 2012. I filed the Career Service Professional Examination form in its regional office—a walk from my boarding house—to have the test permit for the October 21 exam. The test permit cost me P 500.00.
October 21, 2012. After travelling Cebu City from Carcar City at dawn, I took the Career Service Professional Examination of the Civil Service Commission in the University of the Visayas (UV), Colon Street, Cebu City. In UV, my classmate Ivie also took the exam. My friend Merriefin, on the other hand, had her examination in the University of Cebu. She was with Miyuu, my other friend who took the Sub-Professional Examination instead.
