  • Cooling Down in Majayjay

    Whenever we want a quick getaway from the metropolitan jungle that is Metro Manila or when the rainy season brings a stop to our island-hopping and beach-bumming forays, we frequently turn our sights towards the towns at the foot of Mt. Banahaw. The towns of Rizal, Nagcarlan, Liliw, Majayjay and Lukban are destinations where we do not have to worry about riding a boat amidst turbulent waves.

    Majayjay is the most distant of the Laguna towns in the area and an interesting destination. Although we often troop to this town at during the rainy season, we recently discovered that summer or the dr ...

  • Lets Entice College Grads Into Agribiz

    A few days ago, we were in a forum where the discussion was how to entice the young kids to get to love growing plants and animals so that eventually they will end up running their farms as a business.

    That's really fine for the long run. We were thinking, however, that we could also entice the college graduates who are working in the city to consider putting up their agribusiness projects in the provinces. Maybe, the best targets are the young professionals who are fed up with monstrous traffic and pollution in the metropolis.

    These people are a very good target because they are educat ...

  • A Family Outing To Laguna Majayjay Falls

    A trip to Majayjay Falls: More like a family outing rather than an adventure. All expenses were paid by my parents and the travel course was covered by our car. A not so thrilling journey so I wouldn't tell much about it.

    We stumbled upon Costales Nature Farm while we're looking for a place to have lunch and my mother instantly felt giddy since she's a freak for organic products. As expected, the menu was vegetable based, I have no escape but to face one of my biggest fears.

    The farm also caters opportunities to meet the adorable little rodent friends. You can just pick up a tear of lett ...
