Went to the Butterfly Garden and Tribal village last August. So fascinating to see so many butterflies in their wondrous hues. But what really made this trip worthwhile is the time spent in the Tribal Village. My cousin and I were, I guess lucky that there were no other tourists the moment we got inside the village. Thus, making the visit a really intimate one as our questions were greatly entertained, got to play the musical instruments with the tribe. Being a musician, hearing and seeing a "local" play/perform has never been so rewarding. Never thought I'd just have this experience in Philippine Music class. I am looking forward to being back. And I wish that the PPS government will continue it's support and effort in preserving the place for the kids to embrace the culture and be proud to when they grow up.
