November 2007 to April 2008, me and my family temporarily living in Antipolo. Actually the place i s already part of Angono. Don’t know why they (residents) prefered to be called residents of Antipolo. My brother in law lend me his motor bike to be used as my service going to and from Antipolo proper. Eager to explore the place, I drove opposite to my usual route. With a GPS map installed in my mind, memorized from google map on a previous night.
I was impressed by a breath taking views that greeted me when I got out of that subdivision. It was a straight road going down and up. I asked permission from the guard of one subdivision if I could take some pictures of the view from inside. But he didn’t let me in. Before going down on a zigzag road, there was a spot where you could clearly see the laguna de bay.
Photos below are the shots taken from my nikon cool pix. (nikonian ever since.)

I was inspired by their hard work. When I was young, I used to come here during summer or weekend. All they have at that time were dozens of chickens and bountiful of corn in which we cook can full and take it to suba where we swim.
During my vacation in april 2010, I’ve visited my Auntie (first cousin of my mother) who was just a few kilometers from the city center of Sorsogon (Bgy. Cabid-an). During my childhood days, I used to come here especially during harvest time of their corn. During those days, ‘di pa gaanong develop ang lugar nila. Her children developed the area as they grow old. Hindi nagkakalayo sa edad ko ang mga anak nya that’s why we are closed to each other. I’m so thankful that I bring along my camera when I visited her. (she had already poor vision due to catarata.) Here are the pictures taken from their place which I want to share with you.
“The fruit of their labor.”
They open this during high tide to let the brackish water in. But of course there is a net so that their cultured bangus will not swim out.
Ang sarap seguro dito mag siesta.
