    Upon raching bagasbas beach, finding a place to stay was a bit hard. We were lucky enough to be granted accomodation in Mike's kites, we opted to stay in their humble huts, apart from these, air conditioned rooms are available too.

    Our surfer's shack comes ready with guard dogs? Cows :D

    Here's Joy, wife owner of Mike. You guys look for her if in need of a place to stay. She can also have your meals taken care of. Spicy chicken and beer is my favorite.

    The trail eventually led us to a runway, for chartered planes.

    Photo was taken before we were shooed out :lol3

    Flogging of oneself or "penitensya" is a common site in privinces in the Philippines during holy week which drives tourists to witness such. Crucifiction is even performed in other provinces. Tip: stay back a few meters to keep away from flinging blood droplets when observing this feat.

    Here we are grabbing pur lunch for the day at the local town of Mercedes. As fresh as fish can be.

    The people huddled are fish vendors bidding their way to get the fisherman's catch of the day.

    Freshly caught fish are displayed after a merchant wins the bidding.

    Unprepared, here we are attempting to reach the waterfalls. It usually rains in the morning during our stay in bicol thus the sticky mud terrain.

    My riding buddy's front tire refused to roll being packed with mud underneath the fender.

    After my buddy's several tip overs and I predict a lot more to come seeing the trail ahead was a steep incline with more mud that's slippery as hell, it was time to concede and go back. Another reason for us to go back and conquer it some other time :D.

    We still get to appreciate the same water that comes from the waterfalls from the river.

    More pictures before going home.

    There'll be a lot of festivities the week after, I wish we could stay longer but we have to head back to the real world and work our asses off.

    And here I just figured you had a little too much SMB when you downloaded.

    Nice report it looks like traffic was light.

    Just a short Sunday ride, but I've never been here before.

    [​IMG]

    After taking a narrow exit from People’s Park in the Sky to Tagaytay-Cabuyao Road (a few gravelly sections, but not that bad; unlike my friends on dual sports, I was on a street bike, and it was fine), you end up at the Canlubang Mansion (aka, the Marcos Mansion) near Barangay Casile, Cabuyao, Laguna.

    [​IMG]

    It's a dilapidated (and supposedly haunted) reminder of the excesses of the Marcoses era.

    Thanks! I lurk a lot, nakakahiya lang mag-post (if you're a foreigner - it's embarrassing to post) since my rides aren't as adventurous/picturesque as those of most of the contributors on this thread, ha ha ;P

    Sa US lang naman talaga snob ang mga tao sa scooters. For the rest of the world, a scooter is a motorcycle, ibang klaseng motorsiklo lang. I don't think a big bike is better or worse than a scooter. Lots of riders have and use both; the right tool for the right task. :)
