  3. I have seen such a big carp when the flood in our area subsided. This carp is a perfect toast for ensaladang mangga.

  12. @lady anne and vera, they should complete this before the panagbenga which will be in february. Hope they can finish, because the last time the lake was dredged, it took months!

  14. @Mys, why do you visit your docs at Notre? Hope you guys could come visit. You will appreciate the cool weather

  15. @Allan, the lake was manmade but I think it was a small body of water, like a marsh?, back then. It was where horses drink their water way back in the 1900s (Marlboro country dati ang Baguio hehe)

  16. Lochness monster... hmmm, I wonder how real or unreal are these creatures.

  19. i haven't to baguio for years...i heard the rehab involves dredging of the lake, that would affect visitors for Pinagbenga, lapit na di ba...

  20. Great pictures! My mom was born and raised in Baguio, but my siblings and I haven't been there ever!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh the once beautiful lake looks soddy! :D But it's good that they're rehabilitating it. About time! Would you have any idea how long the rehab will take? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Meikah, I think their target date is on the first week of Feb. They are filling the lake with water now. It needs water equivalent to the whole city's one day supply. Hala, baka madivert water there and we won't have water anymore

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Maan, di ba youre from Davao? Wow, was your mom born here? People who grew up here practically know each other, actually.

  24. Hmm..it's been a long time that I haven't visited Baguio. I hope we can visit there this summer. :)

  25. It's always a relief to see our natural resources being rehabilitated. I wish we can do the same with our balding mountains and garbage-filled rivers.

  26. That's a nice initiative of the government to rehabilitate one of Baguio's tourist destinations. I've been to Baguio May of last year when I haven't been blogging yet. :) I definitely had a looooot of fun! I have friends in Baguio who gladly toured my around. I hope to meet you if ever lang, that I go back once again for the Panagbenga Festival for work. By the way, just a trivia, I went to Baguio last year for the first ever Bloggers' Conference held at UP Baguio. Wonder if you were in attendance at that time? I took notes about basics in blogging and 2 months after that, I started Mommy Practicality. Sorry, this is such a long comment already. I just have fond memories of Baguio. Hoping to come back soon! :)

  27. Oversized fish indeed!heheh It's good to know that its being rehabilitated and well-taken care. :D

    ReplyDelete
  28. Those are real? wow! what are they feeding them?

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is a very good initiative for Baguio! How everyone has to visit Burnham Park or not have visited Baguio at all! I remember about the eel when we were in the US and we were told to feed the eel. We forgot if it was once a day or once a week! I think we overfed the eel!

    ReplyDelete
  30. How were you able to get a picture of the oversized eel and carp? Are you part of the rehab team?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have never been to Baguio. I hope that when I visit, everything is already rehabilitated.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wow Baguio! SO the lochness monster is true afterall ? :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. It is amazing how those grew that big! I want to see them in flesh!

    ReplyDelete

  35. Sis, akala ko wordless Wednesday. Bakit may description? ;-P

    My last visit to Baguio was in March 2010 and I noticed the congested roads, pollution and the massive people. I love the weather pero I don't think I'll survive 9.5 degrees! :)

  36. The last shot made me smile... I like that :-)

  37. Good news that they are rehabilitating Burnham Lake. It is one of those places you cannot forget to visit when you go to Baguio.

    ReplyDelete
  38. hahaha parang nga. the eel looks scary. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I knew it! They were looking for the Loch Ness monster in the wrong place. It's been at Burnham Lake all along lol!

    ReplyDelete
  40. oh, boat ride will be stopped...and why those carp and eel are oversized?

    ReplyDelete
  41. That is one big eel!!! I'd be scared to death if I see it swimming past the boat I'm on. How did those get so big?!

    ReplyDelete
  42. @everybody, I dint even know those creatures are lurking in the murky lake. Akala ko nga dead ang lake as in no creatur will stay alive cuz it looked so murky! Plus, you don't see them when you go boating. You only see the little fishies

    ReplyDelete
  43. So the Burnham Park would be ready for the next Panagbenga Festival!
