The Masagana Waterfalls in Puerto Princesa City.

Masagana Falls.
Visiting the City in a forest, must include chasing the majestic waterfalls of Puerto Princesa, we will give you the nearest waterfalls inside the City that you can enjoy in a day, enjoy its refreshing waters and the lush virgin forest.
Going south highway is the Masagana Falls in Brgy. Irawan, take the entrance of the former PCSD office that serve as their training centers now, go left up to the water pumping station and leave your vehicles there, and then start the trekking, the trail is easy to follow and the main way is following the river, yes most of the time you will cross or traverse the river until you reach its peak. Walking going to the falls usually last for 1 hour.
Water Pumping station, the start of the trek.
Masagana Falls is a common public outing place of people living in Irawan, and this is the nearest waterfalls in the city proper. The trekking going there is an adventure, crossing waters, logs and mostly stones, be prepare that most of the time you will step on slippery stones so a good shoes is required, at some point you’ll be confuse to the trail, but the rule is just follow where the river is coming.
Upon reaching Masagana Falls, a good swimming area will welcome you and usually it have crystal clear water except after rain, the pool area is really deep that we are not able to do some measurement due to extreme coldness.
The trail is amazingly indeed, wild flora with great flowers, colorful butterflies and frogs are common attractions. We also spot some unique mushrooms that according to some locals are good to see at night because of its luminous lighting.
The glow in the dark mushrooms.
But one thing I enjoy is those century old trees that you’ll pass by, those gigantic trees with numerous squirrels that play along, and the ambiance of virgin forest is such a joy to experience. Make sure you don’t forgot to apply some mosquito repellant, the trail up to the falls is loaded with it along with leeches as well in some parts mostly under big stones, and please bring home your trash, no one will clean that for you.
From the busy streets of Puerto Princesa (City Proper) going to Irawan usually take 30 minutes on a private vehicle, motor or even tricycle. No entrance fee going to the falls.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play. Gantimpala Theater Foundation made it as their own biggest production for so many years, it keep changing and upgrading in many aspects, from color feel, to music ambiance and of course the magnificent cast that is challenge to portray iconic characters onstage. Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

Guadalupe The Musical, our miracle in Theater.

With the biggest Jackpot now in Ultra Lotto, everybody is asking for miracle, that they can have the winning number combination, that they win the jackpot and change their lives forever. Just like this musical Guadalupe, it answers a question that we need miracle, for us to have strong faith and earn the living that we want.

Guadalupe The Musical, Julie Borromeo’s Performing Arts Foundation, Inc current theater offering will help you realize that, there are miracles in life that we forgot to acknowledge, this are little miracles that we encounter in our daily lives, that instead of saying thank you, we ignore it because we aspire to be bigger, but this play made me realize a common cliché, sometimes dreams happen for those who are deserving to make it a reality, and that person don’t ask for that.
It is a superb musical to watch out for, even for non-Catholic it is worth a try due to its entertainment value, from the lighting design by John Batalla, the beautiful costumes, the wonde…
