At the 11th hour I text messaged Ronald Achacoso, if I could go with them instead. The company of Ronald, ace botanist Ulysses Ferreras, with friends Ernie and Noel had a different road trip planned, also in Laguna but had a flimsier itinerary. So instead of missing out on any adventure I chose to come with the botany guys going down south with destination: nowhere.

It is nice to discover that Laguna can still hold some surprises up its hidden sleeves. May these natural wonders stay forever unscathed by impending urbanizaton...wishful thinking! But I was glad I went on this trip so good thing my sisters were fickle-minded.
