Batangas is one of the go-to easy escapes for Manila dwellers. That's probably why its beaches, like Matabungkay and Calatagan, are always jam-packed. But just because you want a quick getaway doesn't mean you have to endure the crowd, especially when there's still an undiscovered town waiting to be enjoyed. Case in point: Lobo, Batangas.

"I had just finished shooting sunset along the beach and was wrapping up all my gear, when I turned my head the other way and saw a lovely cloud forming above. I again set up my camera to capture the scene; setting up the camera contols to capture long exposure," he says.
"The camera compiled a few frames, and one of them captured a single falling star. Call that very, very, very lucky."
