Plastik! Ito ang madalas natin itawag sa mga taong hindi nagpapakatotoo sa sarili o nagtatago ng kanyang tunay na kalagayan sa buhay at nadarama.
Plastik rin ang tawag natin sa bagay na lagi nating ginagamit sa araw-araw. Naging bahagi na ito ng ating buhay sa matagal na panahon. Ginagamit natin ito sa mga sumusunod:
- Sa paggawa ng yelo at ice candy
- Sisidlan ng ating binili every-time na tayo ay mag-shopping o mamalengke
- Lagayan ng ating inumin
- Packaging ng wet goods
- At iba pa.
Pero teka, alam mo ba na bawal na ang plastik sa ating Bayan? Oo, tama ka ang tinutukoy ko ay yung plastik na ginagamit at hindi yung taong plastik.
Kaugnay nito, meron akong magandang balita sa inyo! Alam mo ba na pwede kang kumita sa plastik. Ayon sa aking source na si Wendel G. Goma, kalihim ng Brgy. Cabanbanan ay pwede kang kumita nang piso hanggang walong piso sa bawat kilo ng plastik na maipon mo na kukunin ng iyong baranggay kung saan ka nakatira. Ito ay isang makabuluhang programa ng Pamahalaang Bayan ng Pagsanjan sa pangunguna ng ating butihing mayor Maita J. Ejercito, Sangguniang Bayan Members at Municipal Planning Coordinator( MPDC) na siyang implementor ng proyektong “Waste To Win! Na may tagline na “Sa Plastik, Panalo!”. Ang programa ay still on-going at matatapos sa Disyembre, 2016.
Layunin ng nasabing proyekto na hikayatin ang ating mga ka-barangay na mag-recycle. Gayun din upang mabawasan ang basura sa ating bayan na nagdudulot ng malaking pagbaha at nakakasira rin sa ating kalikasan.
Para sa buong detalye at karagdagang impormasyon, mangyari lang na makipagugnayan sa inyong punong barangay o kalihim.
Tara na! Mangulekta ng plastik sa sambahayan. Ipunin at huwag itapon. Makiisa para mapangalagaan ang ating kalikasan at kagalingan nating lahat.
Sharing one of Pagsanjan landmarks the Puerto Real. Photo taken by Ramon F.Velasquez . “The arch is located at the western entrance of the town along the National Highway. It leads to Rizal Street (formerly Calle Real) of the town.” (wikipedia.org)
Pagsanjan Arch also known as Puerto Real or Arco Real is a historic town gate of Pagsanjan, Laguna built from 1878 to 1880 under the supervision of Fray Cipriano Bac. The arch was built by the people of Pagsanjan to express gratitude to their patroness, the Our Lady of Guadalupe, from protecting the town from bandits in 1877.(wikipedia.org)
The town of Pagsanjan has became premiere tourists attraction in the province of Laguna because of its famous Pagsanjan Falls. It’s really spectacular , unique, enchanting and amazing that’s why many tourists from around the world have been attracted to visit it and experience the thrill and adventure of shooting the rapids. Surely, you’ll be having unusual stories to share with your friends and family after the trip.
I want you to feel the actual encounter of visiting the Falls so I’m sharing the following reviews made by adventurous and fun-loving people who have been there. I excerpted these for you from Yelp.Com :
“The best experience so far on my trip in the Philippines. If you are looking for places to go or experience in the Philippines, this would be just one of them. The waters come from the national falls of the Philippines. It’s about two hours from Manila due to the traffic but still a good experience”(Edna G).
“The canoe ride was amazing so I didn’t mind that I couldn’t get near Pagsanjan Falls. It was unlike I’ve ever experienced. You get motored to the rapids and once you’re near the rapids, 2 boatmen paddle you upriver. It’s a lot of work so tip them well.”(Jesicca G.)
“But I promise you, the journey to the falls is worth it. You will get to see a really picturesque area. Since it’s such a tourist attraction, there’s even a man made raft that could take you straight to the falls! I noticed though a lot of Koreans love going to this place (I wonder why). Now, the journey back up to land is the harder part (since it’s going up). Overall, this is a good day trip to do!”(Katrina E.)
“As an archipelago, the country isn’t blessed with the most spectacular of mountain ranges. We do have some nice ones, but the variety and shapes are limited. One side effect of having small mountain ranges is the lack of dramatic waterfalls. The waterfall is one of the most spectacular sights in nature, and though we don’t quite have anything to rival Niagra or Angel’s Falls, we do have a few good ones like Pagsanjan falls. It is one of the most famous in the country with its three tiers and beautiful view inside devil’s cave. The boat ride to reach it is calm and smooth, ensuring even senior citizens can make the trip“.(Mikey A)
