I never thought that my Barrio can be a tourist destination and I never thought my new friends would love going around the once beautiful Laguna Lake....nice realization this is!

the Pila trippers plus Atefeh (Iran) and Dee (Philippines) went on another trip, this time a boat ride to Laguna Lake and going around my place at Masili.Com (I just called it that way, don't ask me why, it's just that)

not as huge as Titanic but the we had huge fun

the typical landscapes or shall I say waterscapes, floating houses with bamboo fences (fish cages)

our tour guides

after the water adventure, now we're heading for another adventure

we visited the shooting range in Masili, found in this area of the sliced mountain and we're so blessed the people there allowed us to try shooting

enjoying each others company =) together with the tall grasses

Reza coached by Colonel ...... OMG! I didn't get his name...so sorry Sir =(

I like Atefeh's comment, she said when she got here (in the Philippines) she became friends and actually joined Christian's activities then now she's trying out shooting like a terrorist

hahaha...Aureline's face says it all =)

Dee's first time, well it's true for all of us

nice form Sarah

ohhhhhhh Nurul don't shoot!

the new action star =)

stairs that connects Calamba and Los Baños, going to another Barangay that's already part of Los Baños, so from Masili (my place and that's still Calamba) to Tadlac (already Los Baños) these two Barangays are the ones surrounding the crocodile lake

Joey's Place

I brought Aureline (a French friend) to the home of our National Hero, Jose Rizal...whom I fondly called Joey as if we're close =) hehe....
