A Closer Look at Malaybalay City

Its been a while since the day that I walked through the City Proper, and its a perfect place to see the city because it is after all the city center and the administrative capital of the province. Since I have tons of free time so I thought of going out and explore the city.

The City's Poblacion is divided into 11 Barangays, which are numerically named. Barangays 1, 2, 5, 6, 8 and 9 are found on the eastern side of Sayre Highway (named Fortich Street in the Poblacion) while Barangays 3, 4, 7, 10 and 11 are on the western side. The 11 Barangays, together with 2 urbanizing barangays Casisang and Sumpong, form the Poblacion District of Malaybalay City. The other districts are the North Highway, South Highway, Basakan and Upper Pulangi.

I went upward to Heights (Barangay 1) through Claro M. Recto Avenue and these are the sites I caught on cam:

The Church of Latter Day Saints (also known as Mormons)

Immediate top and bottom photos shows the Lower Claro M. Recto Avenue going to Sayre Highway.

Claro M. Recto corner Propia Street.

Further up CM Recto is the City Hall. I haven't got good images because I stayed outside the compound.


Above is the City Court of Justice, also found in the City Hall Compound.

Then I went on at Alberto Street, crossing Gov. Rubin Street. I am now at Barangay 1 also known locally as Heights.

Then I went southward, by making my through Pimentel Street and then making my way to the Kaamulan Grounds. Here are the pictures while on the way:

Finally, I reached the entrance leading to the Kaamulan Grounds. Its been a while since I last visited this place, still beautiful and serene.

Kaamulan Open Theater (also known as Folk Arts Theater)

I then went to the Provincial Capitol. It is quiet because it is a weekday not like every weekends wherein families and friends come together and play.

The last place I visited is the City Plaza where the famous "Erection de Pueblo" stands.

Because the "rainy afternoon syndrome" is coming, I decided to go home. I hope tomorrow I could go to the western side of the City and the City terminal.
