“It looks emerald and serene.”
“It seems it’s enticing you to take a dip.”

“And sometimes such craving for details leads us to disappointment.”
“You’re unwilling to bend, even just a little, your definition of beauty. Details, indeed, can break or make your expectations. Perhaps its stillness might be disturbed, but it provides another window to different degree of beauty. How does it feel to be the cause, to be part of its disturbed state? Let us say, it is just like sex. You have this idea, sex feels good. But how can you validate such goodness if you haven’t experienced a mind-blowing orgasm? Beauty has degrees. Yours, I would say, is anchored in cowardice.”
ALTERNATIVE GUIDE TO KAWASAN FALLS
South Bus Terminal, as the name suggests, houses all buses bound south. Buses are always available and leave every thirty minutes. Kawasan Falls has a minimal entrance fee of P10 only ( the in-charge post is located a couple of meters away from the mouth of the river. ) It’s highly advisable to trek up to the third falls since it has the widest and safest pool, not to mention less crowded compared to the first two falls.
Yes, as a self-proclaimed river goddess, Kawasan River tops my list.
