So after just a few days in Iligan armed with our bagful worth of Iligan peanuts as Pasalubong off we were to CDO.We had to do the same audit routine in CDO but since the plant was much smaller, it was less toxic. For the weekend, we went to Malasag Nature Trail to appreciate the nice view and the great cottages. I really wanted to try the white water river rafting but the cost of it was too expensive for my meager income back then and since this was done on our lean season we didn’t have the luxury of our extra overtime income pay. Yes, the life of an auditor is not lavish but I guess it’s the experience that matter. Malasag Nature Trail was still a good experience but of course, white water river rafting and the falls of Iligan would have been better but there’s always a next time and I know I’ll have a chance to get back here in the future. I was also able to enjoy the night life in CDO. Yes, CDO’s night life is really alive and fun especially that the client was really very hospitable and lavish in the entertainment department.
A few days after, I was on my way back to Manila and the rest was to visit the facility in Camiguin. The disadvantage in being the audit senior in the engagement. The higher ups always want you in close sights to do volumes of work. So there it was I was able to miss Maria Cristina and Tinago Falls, White Water River Rafting and Camiguin in a single trip but it was still a great trip even if it was mostly for work.
