Nature-Tripping at Pandin Lake in San Pablo, Laguna
by Ariane Astorga
Pandin Lake is one of the Seven Lakes (or Pitong Lawa) of San Pablo. I have a feeling that older people already know about the 7 lakes (in a textbook kind of way) but I’m pretty sure that young people have yet to discover this picturesque place.
