Dreamy Ride - Brgy Carmen, Silang, Cavite

Call me crazy, call me anything. I love this sport so much that I always find time to get out and ride. I took time off from work to register the car at LTO. I was anxious to get it done fast so I can head off to my favorite playground. God must have heard my prayer today that I was able to finish my task at 10am. The weather is unpredictable, patches of clouds cover south and west of Binan. I waited for the sun set a little lower in the horizon. at 3:45, I headed out to Brgy Carmen. I took pictures along the way, thinking that in a few years, the landscape will be forever altered, overtaken by "progress". What I saw today, maybe gone tomorrow. My photographs a mute testament of how beautiful is the back country.

I am wondering when all of this will be gone, victim of progress
I hope and pray that my grandchildren can still enjoy tomorrow, what I see today.

Yup, nothing like the great outdoors :). I'm lucky that the place I'm living in Malaysia is near a forest which gives me an idea sir. I'll also take some photos to share on my blog.

Take pictures, smell the air, feel the bark of trees and the blades of grass while you still can. Nature is full of wonders for us to enjoy :)
