We started our route via the Backdoor Marilaque route … Antipolo going to Laguna.

Our first stop would be Mang Vic’s Bulalohan in Antipolo (pic above)

While having a leisurely pace, my riding buddy Rob had an accident while doing a sharp turn in Tanay, Rizal

Here’s some pics of his damaged Suzuki Raider 150.

We still found time to take a souvenir shot after the accident. Lol! This will be a fun trip indeed.

After a couple of hours waiting and having it temporarily repaired in a motorcycle shop somewhere in Tanay, we proceeded towards Laguna.

Right before Pagsanjan… there was a town fiesta, lucky for us!…or so we thought.

It turns out they celebrate it by throwing water at people and cars crossing their town.

Kakaibang fiesta ito. Lahat dapat maligo pati mga motorist binabasa. Whew!

Nearing our destination, it was raining heavily so we took shelter in a gas station.

With our raingears still on.

Now entering the town of Lucban, Quezon

After a couple of hours more traveling, and after a total of approximately 170 kms, we finally reached our destination – Kamayan sa Palaisdaan

Very hungry…

Aaaahhh…the trip was indeed worth it.

To burn off the extra calories we took in… we decided to visit the nearby Kamay ni Hesus (Hand of Jesus) Shrine

This sure is high!

Going home, me and Jeffs took the Provincial Highway going to Sto. Tomas Batangas to Calamba, Laguna. Arrived at home a little bit past 9 pm. Truly a day to remember.

Touchdown.

16 hours and 310 kilometers for me today!

Need to rest.
