  1. Ang ganda… My favorite memory of Laguna is…the Original buco pie and pineapple pie in Los Banos! THE BEST in the WORLD! Hope someday we can have it here in Toronto.

  2. Usually I go visit my hometown Sta. Cruz, Laguna in September; but this time I purposely visited my hometown in February to April 2012 in order to see this festival. This is one of the best festivals I have seen in the Philippines. Many thanks to the Governor and the people of Laguna. Greetings from Caracas, Venezuela.
