Gloomy Sunday


It was so gloomy [and cold] the entire day last Sunday. So we decided to get on our bikes and go to Cantipla, a mountain baranggay near Balamban. We were stuck in Cantipla for a short while because it rained really hard. Fog covered the road [which I forgot to take a picture of] and V-hires taking passengers to and from Balamban had to reduce speed and turn their headlights on.

Cantipla is famous for its sweet corn, very fresh produce, and fog which could easily equal the mists of Baguio and Tagaytay . 🙂
