PostSubject: Development around the twin lakes   Tue Sep 18, 2007 9:07 am

The new viewing deck hovering on top the ridge between the two lakes.
You either have to cross by boat to reach the opposite bank of the lake or walk all your way following the trail on the fringes of the lake.







There are few of this build around the lake a good disguise for a toilet.




A restaurant which they are building now,just on top of the lake.So bad just making way of it they cleared away some vegetations/trees that partly supports the ecosystem over the twin lakes.Then there are these two big boats on its way.When I queried one of the builders he said ,they gonna have those two floating over the lake soon which really appalled me, can't believe how stupid people can be .Imagine those two boats around the lake,what a sore in the eye, they are as big as those that cross from sibulan to Samboan . If true ,soon the twin lakes known for its captivating natural charm would inevitably soon loose it because of the fast development planned and designed by some greedy bastards.

newt,

for me this is not the way how to attract tourist, i used to be in balinsasayaw every summer when i was still studying, i have appreciated the lake when it was not touch, too bad, they were not able to think of better way to attract hikers or tourist.

Exactly shakoy ,their ecotourism propaganda is slowy slipping away out of greed for more revenues ,its money ,money,money and more money. It sacrifices serene nature and beauty of the area which is the selling point .I am sure such restaurant will do it's purpose but it largely compromises the lakes' ecosystem. It's human activities again creeping to invade the lakes. I am not against the idea of a restaurant had they constructed it a distance away ,not as close by the entrance point to the lake. Just my guess , within the time span of 10 yrs ,there might possibly strings of accomodations or even hotels dotted along the area ,cutting trees giving way to human greed .I thought the area is protected or as a nature reserve, nothing like any heavy construction be done in its premises .Now the picture is changing .This isn't the end,but the beginning of the worst to come to our nature's legacy ,the twin lakes.



I had been to the twin lakes sevaral times .But my first one was around 1988 ,during the trekkers club of Mr Chiong of Silliman.And we hiked from the highway of San Jose up to the lakes. After the last village you have to follow a faint trail overgrown with wild rambling vines , shrubs and grass . You need to cut some out to clear the path and on coz few ahed of you hadn't done it well enough ,and this goes on down to the lakes .That's what I call kind of adventure .It's like visiting something looking similar to one in the Jurassic park ,only there was no dino or man eating t-rex. It's like a place forgotten or out of civilization ,and where the magic plays .The thought of the old twin lakes can still mesmerize ones imaginations of something mystical and wild . Now we are gradually loosing our nature's treasure . Soon people will book dinners or lunches in the twin lakes . Character of pinoys puera sa mga maayu ug batasan , na known na gyud tang mga suhirang dagko .Kon na-ay nag tinda ug banana que sa kalye,pagka sunud simana atbangan sab na ug laing nagbaligya ug banana que , pag ka 5 ka bulan hangtud hapit tanan nag baligya ug banana que .Perhaps 5 -10 -15 yrs from now there'll be like disco or restobars out there.Kind of mountain resort dotted with hotels,even another convention centre ...another busy tourist resort ? I hope this is only but a bad dream.

maring jaz,

before makaingon gyud kung ang lake was really worth walking, from highway lala-an to lake, but right now, pwede naka magsakay ug 4wd na mga sakyanan, kay ila na gipagam-aon dalan dako, they destroyed the vegetations along the trail towards the lake, ang they even cemented some parts where it was dificult for vehicle to pass. wala nay angay kay wala nay challenge sa paglakaw

Tinu-ud na gi storya ni shakoy jaz nga okies na kaayu ang dalan pa ingun sa twin lakes .Bisan gani mag motor lang.Pag adtu namo 2004,naa gani mga bayung-bayung nag mountain bikes lang ngilngig sab tu kaayu sila.Dli preha late 80's nga kalasangan pa.I'll post some more pics later .
That's it ,okies na kaayu atung dapit daghan ng ma-adtu-an labi na naa mo mga bisita.

I wish unta na-ay mag develop anang hot spring sa puhagan, Valencia kay it can be a potential money spinner,you can make a small hot spring resort didtu,with warm dipping pool + massage and spa .Naa may hot spring nga mga 40 oC lang ang water temp,pero wala lang tingali naka hunahuna develop diha dapita.The can convert similar that same area like Mambucal in Murcia.

Lagi shakatak kadungug sab ko anang mga negative feedbacks bahin ana nila.Tingali daghang mga buluyagon nila or naka under estimate sa atung bala-ud nga paluy-paluy maong mag abusar.Unta anhi na mo regulate ang goberno ,sa pagpatuman sa bala-ud ,mga ordinansa ug uban pa.Kon kinsay musupak o maka violate kinahanglan may penalty ,strikto implementasyon lang kinahanglan ug close monitoring sa mga violators , including whistle blowing gikan sa publiko,para may order bisan mag baha pa kini sila.In other terms,nag dala man sab na sila ug kwarta para sa economiya sa dakpayan.Gikan sa penalty ,maka kolekta sab ang dakpayan sa dumaguete ug mga revenues so it's like hitting two birds with one stone.Ang kinahnaglan mao nga kining atung mga pamunu-an sa dumaguete mag hugpung mag organize sa ilang systema para sa general nga kaayuhan sa tanan.

shakoy ,mao lagi ni daghang bala-od pero wala gi implemento ,ma-ung daghang magpabuyag,daghan man ganing buluyagng nga pinoy easy- easy lang ,mao sab ng ubang koreyano.

Tung didtu mi cebu nag hire mi driver pa suroy-suroy,mao sab na iya complaintbahin mga koreano.Naa gani kunuy koreano nga nang hold-up ug taxi driver.naka inkwentro sab siya ug koreano nga dili mubayad sa gasolina sa service nila,unta ni agree na unta sa arrangements.gidala gyud nya sa polis ,kay isug naman kaayu .uban sab mga inut kuno kaayu.kay kon mag hire ug driver whole day ,incharge man sila mupaka-on.dayun gihatagan lang day sya ug P40 pa Mc Donalds,iyang giingnan nga dili ni igo pa McDo.Pero segi nalang kay maka ka-on ra man sya sa kilid-kilid kalan-an.Pero dili sab uyon ang koreano adtu sya sa kilid carenderia.Gipon-an ug 20 pesos lang daw.Niingun driver ok adtu sya Mc do,wala kabantay ang koreano ni tipas ug laing direksyon si driver kay dili kuno siya mabusog ug adtu sa Mcdo ug mao ra tuy kwarta gihatag paka-on sa cebu.Dili nu-an tanan koreano ngil-ad,pero kay daghna na kaayu sila bisita dri,apil sab tung mga maldito .

Tung didtu mi sa Forest camp daghanang koreans adtung adlawa,murag ga party sila ,mga batan-on,daghan sang mga sexy kaayung koreana tsada sag mga lawas ,legs lay imo makalibat ,nanag bikini pa gud ...na tomboy nalang kug kadyut ,hahahaha.
