Tag Archives: Makiling Rainforest Park



Before concrete utility poles like power poles, trunk of the Toog trees were used as they are straight, tall and hard. This I learned by hiking with someone who is a forestry graduate.

Celebratory Chevon


Last Sunday I hiked through the rainforest of Makiling. Along the trail, I made use of an outhouse toilet at the back of a shack that sells coconuts to hikers. While waiting for my turn, I saw a slaughtered goat waiting to be immersed in a scalding water for dehairing. Then I heard people talking indoors and I’ve come to understand that the kambing is for somebody’s birthday.
