The first day of the year 2017 when I first saw the sign of this bistro. Looking on the outside, I knew that the concept and the ambiance would be ancestral house turned into a small restaurant. It was closed back then, and I told myself that I’d check it out once I’m back for a vacation.
Gravity is not responsible for falling in love. However, it is one of the powerful forces of the universe that is responsible for making the water flow and fall from the point of elevation thus, making this place magnificent.
A mountain called Bantay Cross is located here in the Philippines, specifically in the town of Cabangan in the province of Zambales.
The villagers said that it is nature who made the mountain to be like this. As you can see, there are few trees on its face but there is a forest on its peak.
When I was a kid, my Grandfather used to bring me in this place. I’ve experienced living on a farm , I don’t know the history of my ancestors but my Grandmother once told me that they own half of the mountain around 5 hectares of farmland and 7 hectares of the river but they don’t legally claim all of it, some of it were taken by the government. I don’t have an idea how that happened, maybe it was bought by my ancestors and they’ve had it for generations or probably it was awarded via land reform.
