Malaybalay itself isn't particularly exciting. The most interesting part is really the Church of Transfiguration. We went to have brunch with the Monks (done the Second Sunday of every month). I'm not sure why it's called breakfast because it's more like lunch but anyway, following their 8 o'clock mass, you can join them. It costs about $3 per person for buffet style Filipino food, including coffee, juice, and dessert.
Afterwards, we stopped in the gift shop to buy some pasalubongs (translation: souvenirs). The monks are known for their very original brand of coffee: Monk's Blend. Also, the peanut brittle is supposed to be phenomenol. Unfortunately, I wouldn't know from personal experience but it's worth a taste.
Our afternoon was supposed to be spent white water rafting but it had been raining nonstop for the last few days so we had to cancel it. Rain this time of year is really out of the ordinary :( We spent the day relaxing and watching movies...well. My friends watched movies. I napped!
Note: The pictures here are from another visit because I was too afraid to take out my camera in the bad weather.
