Laguna is a beautiful province located in the CALABARZON region in Luzon, Philippines. If you are coming from Manila, it will take you an hour and a half to reach the heart of the province (without the traffic). Because of the proximity, Laguna is known to be one of the best weekend getaway spots of people who would like to take a breather from the hustle and bustle of the metro. If you must know, I am a proud ‘probinsyana’ from this amazing province. I grew up and studied in Laguna and back then, I didn’t realize that there were a lot of hidden gems in the province.

I adore every tradition. It’s one of the reasons why I keep wandering. So let me take that shameful response away and give you a bit of the not-so-usual experience I had instead. What’s that not-so-usual experience, you ask? It’s when old and modern fuse. Wishing to come back in old days where life seems slower but not brave enough to leave the comfort of the modern world? I got your back! You can observe the patience of amazing wome...
