till next adventure girls!

And how should a beautiful, ignorant stream of water know it heads for an early release — out across the desert, running toward the Gulf, below sea level, to murmur its lullaby, and see the Imperial Valley rise out of burning sand with cotton blossoms, wheat, watermelons, roses, how should it know? ~Carl Sandburg, Good Morning America, 1928

Porto Market  ( you can buy anything in wet and dry market (complete meal), you have to bring as well water container for your own mineral water).

Take a trike going to Porto Proper (P50.00 per head)

Boat/Banka Ride one way going to Lusong Cove is P1,000.00 it depends to the bankero’s if it’s two way.  So if it’s two ways you can ask for a discounts. (Sorry we didn’t get the number of the bangkero).

If your now in Lusong Cove, there is two resort awaits for you there.  That time that we reach Lusong Cove both resorts are full and they’ve told us we cannot accommodate all of us.  So we decided to stay in one abandoned place which is in front as well in the beach.  But you have to be careful, if you pitch your own tent much better if you can fixed it near to your tent’s mates.  Why? because the last time one of our tents, the girls are screaming and calling us by names and telling there’s a thief.   Immediately the thief run away heading to the coconut trees until he fades away.  My friend said, she feels that there something in-front of her body and because she was sleeping she ignore it.  Until she fully wake up and saw the man (thief). All of us we go out from the tent and checked it one by one the tent if anything lost.  But thank god all of us are fine and safe except for this two girls.  They took the i-phone 4.  The contact numbers and some of her important PIN is in the phone.  We report immediately to the baranggay whats happen to us. And they said this is the second time. (sad to hear that).

This is the first time it happen and next time we are more alert and before we sleep we put our important things inside the bags.

So, if anyone wants to visit in Lusong Cove, choose the two resorts in that island for your safety.

 Angat Dam

The reservoir supplies about 90 percent of raw water requirements for Metro Manila through the facilities of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System  and it irrigates about 28,000 hectares of farmland in the provinces of Bulacan and Pampanga.

Angat Dam is located in Barangay San Lorenzo (Hilltop), Norzagaray, Bulacan. It supplies potable water to Metro Manila and powers a hydro-electric power plant. The dam is 131 meters high and impounds water from the Angat River that subsequently created the Angat Lake.

It has three gates opening a total of 1.5 meters to gradually release water that had accumulated due to incessant rains during typhoons.

Munting Ngiti Hakbang ng Kinabukasan Pag-asa 2- A community Outreach Program 2014

Sabi nga nila ang edukasyon ay susi ng ating taumpay, lahat tayo ay nag daan sa pagkabata at nag – aral sa eskwelahan kung saan malapit lang sa ating bahay o di naman kaya ay may kalayuan.  Maswerte ang mga batang nakakapag aral, ngunit paano yung hinde? Paano yung pinagkaitan ng biyaya na ang kanilang mga magulang ay kahit anong kayod ay kulang padin para makaipon sa kanilang pag papa – aral, sakto lang sa pang araw –  araw na pagkain para sa kanilang mag anak.

Ako at ang grupo namin ay mga simpleng mamumundok lamang sa ibat – ibang parte ng lugar, kami ay madalas na nagagawi sa parte ng Rizal at Bulacan.  Dito kung saan ang madaming naninirahan at sila ay aming mga kakwentuhan habang kami ay umaakyat papunta ng Mt. Maranat sa lugar ng Norzagaray Bulacan.

Si Marvin at Rosie ay isa lamang sa mga bata na aking nakilala sa Rodriguez Rizal, kinamusta ko ang kanilang pag-aaral sinagot naman nila ako ng maayos at matyaga silang nag aaral sa araw-araw, ngunit kapag araw ng biernes ay di na sila pumapasok tinanong ko naman kung bakit, sila raw ay mag tatrabaho na lamang, para sa araw ng lunes sila naman ay may pambaon hanggang huwebes, alam ko na sa sarili ko kung ano ang kanilang mga trabaho kapag araw ng biernes sila ay mga nagbubuhat ng uling na nangagaling sa taas ng bundok o di naman kaya ay dalawang sakong uling para pantawid sa kanilang pag aaral.  Matapos naming mag-usap umalis na ang mga bata at ako naman ay napatingin sa napakalawak na kabundukan ng Sierra Madre at duon ay nagtatanong, gaano pa kaya kayo tatagal sa pakikipagbaka na wag maubos ang inyong mga kapunuan at sa kalangitan naman ako ay napatingin paano na po ang mga batang ito na sa murang edad palang ay kanila ng binubuhay ang kanilang sarili.

Naisip namen magkakaibigan na tumulong sa paraan na aming makakaya.  Eto na, pinagsama – samang pwersa ng aming kaisipan binuo namen ang aktibidades na ito para sa mga bata ng Rodriguez Rizal na sa amin ay talagang napamahal na.

Sa tulong ng mga kaibigan din na umaakyat ng kabundukan ay nagbigay ng mga pambili ng school supplies, tsinelas, tumbler, bowl, used clothes na may pambata at pang matanda na din, mga libro na inilagak sa library ng eskwelahan.

Nsa baba po nito ang mga ilang larawan na aming mga ginawa.
