Well, we spent mother’s day in Cebu Wetland Resort, now it was time to celebrate my father’s “day”, his birthday. You surely can’t bring your fathers on a picnic, so I knew the best place to spend the afternoon and I was pretty sure that my siblings, cousins and my father will enjoy it.Off we went to karting in Kartzone Mabolo. Kartzone is located in F Cabahug St., Ayala Access Road, Mabolo,Cebu City, near Offroads Coffee and Sykes Bldg. Mabolo.
I’ve always wanted to own and drive a car. I did get a chance to drive our old Tamaraw back in highschool, well I am not really sure if I did drive it since my father just instructed me to properly park it which meant I only needed to move it forward for 1 meter and a half.
Getting broke, we had to let go of the vehicle and I did not get the chance to really drive it. So, growing up, I have frustrations of owning and driving one. That’s the life of an average Filipino, and if you are laughing, you may be one of those rich kids who grew up having 2 or 3 family cars which you can drive and boast to your friends. Okay, enough with the drama, the karts in Kartzone were the nearest 4-wheeled vehicle resembling a real car, so I would never miss the chance of putting the pedal to the metal.
Before I proceed though, just a random thought. While waiting for me to save up to buy my own car, I wanted to get a driver’s license first, but that would leave me with “License without Driving.” 🙂
Anyway, we arrived in Kartzone and had to pay up the fees needed. We opted for the double-seaters since it was the most affordable way for all of us to enjoy. Single-seater karts in Kartzone are priced at 300php for 8 laps while double-seaters are priced at 350php for 8 laps.
And we waited… and waited… and waited for our turn.
