Some say, terminals are sources of all kinds of diseases. But it can also be a relief for our personal necessities especially in season like this-rainy days.
The regular bus stop-over for the North bound buses or from Valencia City and even from Davao City is in Barangay Kisolon, Sumilao, Bukidnon. If you are new to Bukidnon and you are from other places, at least you have an idea where to discharge for personal necessities. Kisolon is 30 minute-ride and 30 kilometers from Malaybalay City.
My employer again sent me to a seminar in Cagayan de Oro. While in transit, I overheard the driver that they do not want to stop over this terminal for a travel break. I then say out-loudly to stop for my own personal necessity. I then told the driver that I would rather be bold in telling them with my "personal necessity" than be inflicted with kidney infection. Practical sense made me in doing this where some people still timid in doing so to the extent that they will exchange it to more serious health problem.
When some of us where about to get off the bus to visit the rest room, some even thanked me for what I did in boldly asking the driver to stop in this terminal for personal necessity. A simple gesture of gratitude, made me feel good that day.

It was not only happened to me once, but more than twice, and I often heard some people expressed their gratitude because of my action.
As a bit of historical background of this Barangay Kisolon :
Sumilao is politically subdivided into ten (10) barangays, six of which are traversed by the Kulaman River that separate them from the other four barangays. The ten barangays are Kisolon, Kulasi, Licoan, Lupiagan, Occasion, Poblacion, Puntian, San Roque, San Vicente and Vista Villa. Unlike any other municipalities, the seat of government in Sumilao is located at barangay Kisolon, Barangay Poblacion serves as satellite barangay for other rural barangays. This is one of the unique traits of this municipality.

The development of this Barangay Kisolon was started by the Baula's family, but it was under the administration of Honorable Mayor Mary Ann Baula where the public market and the bus terminal realized into this form, with the collaboration of the Provincial Government.

Some of us are travelers. Man or a woman has personal necessities. So we have to be braved and bold enough to say that to the driver to avoid serious ailment especially kidney trouble. That is our privilege to say it, surely, they will always grant that request. Lastly, as a sort of advise, don't be shy. "Sh-y sana ang magsabi na huminto kami.......(:-).
