 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.

Anawangin Cove, Zambales : Chillin’ with the Best Buddies

Way back 1996 ¬†looking back in my college days were freshmen students in Trinity College of Quezon City. Marjorie¬†and I are classmate in most of the subjects and at first were not really friends at all we have a little fight because of one student ( that’s the start we hate each other..lol).¬†¬†And if i¬†have a break i¬†usually to sit in the canteen just to eat and one day i saw Jerome¬†(he’s looking good and looks very kind)¬†but¬†of course¬†i¬†don’t talk to the strangers. I didn’t realize that this two lovely person is taking a space in my heart. We are jive in so many things specially the mountaineering activities. ¬†We have lot’s of good memories and ¬†we treated each other as a real ¬†brother and sisters.

In 2009, i¬†decided to visit Philippines i¬†work and lived in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I am so stressed in my work and i need a break. ¬†I contacted Jerome by the way there’s a¬†little¬†bit¬†changing¬†of his name ¬†call him ¬†Jom¬†he told me to join with them ( his¬†office mates¬†) and i¬†definitively¬†agree. ¬†Then i heard that Marjorie is on vacation too from her work, ¬†calling her¬†as Meg¬†now. ¬†¬†I am so excited to this trip .. Anawangin¬†Cove here i come.

We meet up in Victory Liner Caloocan Monumento Station.  While waiting for the other backpackers we decided to buy something to eat. Then later on the bus is move and  After three hours of travelling from Manila to San Antonio Public Market then after that we take a tricycle going to Pundaquit and from Pundaquit we need to rent a motor boat (banka) for another ride. This boat will take us in Anawangin Cove Island.

waiting for our rented motor boat (banka) … priceless views of the beauty of nature!

¬†morning¬†view¬†after we travel from the bus¬†.. it’s really worth to wait ;D … ohhh summer breeze makes me feel fine! ūüėÄ

a formation of beautiful rocks and crystal blue water welcoming to us

and finally here we are .. another take shot .. we are obsessed ( not really¬†obviously¬†.. ūüėÄ ¬†)

green thing ….

dried leaves by the tress …

The whole cast!¬† Meeting new friends is one of the best thing to do …

and one more thing if you use this wooden table and chair you have to ¬†pay ¬†because it’s a rental¬†but it doesn’t matter it’s a big help for our group to use this table .¬†¬†Time to prepare what’s for the lunch ;D

Grilled fish (¬†inihaw¬†na isda¬†) plus yummy grilled egg-plant (¬†inihaw¬†na talong) meet our chef ¬†.. ¬†Norman and his assistant ūüėČ

Chef ¬†Kim …¬† ( craving for her cook .. yummy indeed )

hammock .. to the max ( sleeping ) if you could¬† see at my back ground¬† it’s Pine Trees¬† (yes a pine trees ) in the place which is¬†not cold area .. just wondering a pine trees in Zambales.

SUNSET … FOR MORE ? ūüėÄ

A simple plan it ends to a ¬†brilliant¬†vacation.¬† We didn’t spend a lot’s of money on this trip and eveni¬†travelled in the most expensive place and i¬†couldn’t¬†find the real beauty of nature and the amazing people who¬†i newly met.

“Beneath the light, the river and hills are beautiful,
The spring breeze bears the fragrance of flowers and grass.
The mud has thawed, and swallows fly around.
On the warm sand, mandarin ducks are sleeping.”
