Action-Packed Aurora Weekend

A trip to the province of Aurora won't be complete without riding the waves. I got to do just that, one off my bucket list, plus my friends and I managed to see the Ditumabo Falls in San Luis.

The Sights and Flavours of Aurora

It has been a tradition in the Pink Family to celebrate our birthdays together. No one in the group was a May celebrator. So in our attempt to have our last hurrah for the summer, JT had an early celebration (his birthday wasn't until June) and our destination of choice was Baler.

Our long journey to Baler started at almost close to midnight together with Alain Calderon (our host and guide) and a trusted driver. Cramped in the van, some of us slept while the others just couldn't keep their eyes shut. Midway, we made a quick stop to do some stretching and answer the call of nature. It was daybreak by the time we reached Baler.

Shooting the Rapids En Route to the Falls in Laguna

I spent my childhood and teenage summers in Laguna but never in those years had I set foot in the town of Pagsanjan or Cavinti or even laid eyes on the famed falls of Laguna (which even became a subject of my cousin's painting and featured in an Italian art book).

Around Laguna

I spent a chunk of my childhood summers and college weekends in Laguna. Having relatives who have moved to this Southern Tagalog province had me exploring the towns (yes, because these were towns back then) of San Pedro, Biñan, Santa Rosa, Calamba and Los Baños. But that was it, I only saw the western part of this province. That there was another world on the other side of Laguna de Bay which I only got to explore recently.

Transformation at the GK Enchanted Farm

There was a huge tract of land where no one dared to tread. It was inhabited by rebels and criminals. The land itself was infertile, having been quarried like there's no tomorrow. But thanks to a group of people whose love for the Philippines and the Filipinos is bigger than the size of the human heart. This once forsaken land is now home to around fifty households, farms, budding social enterprises, people under entrepreneurial mentorship and volunteers coming from different countries.

Welcome to the GK Enchanted Farm!
