Mulberries are not native to the Philippines so seeing them
growing on shrubs in a resort of all places are quite a surprise. There I saw these two
kids picking them and having a fun time while at it. With the
help of their baby sitters, they were able to gather a basket full.
Located at the back of the resort near the covered conference center and the obstacle course, there are two rows of fruiting plants. What was just an experiment by the resort owners if they would grow in the Philippines, specifically on the resort grounds, they are now full grown and are already bearing fruits.
This is just one of the attractions at the Alta Rios Resort, Camp and Conference Center in Indang, Cavite. Apart from the nature trail going to the hidden river, having picked mulberries as part of your trip to Alta Rios is a story worth telling your friends and family.
A word of caution: just pick a few just to taste so that others may also get to pick and have a taste of it as well.
It is every parents fear of what might happen to their children whenever they are not in their care. Parents are comforted by the fact that their kids are in safe and able hands when they’re at school and is being looked upon by their teachers and school personnel. That changes when it is time for them to go on a field trip which happens at least once a year. It is only up to a certain age that schools would allow parents to act as chaperon and there will be a time when kids themselves would not want their parents to be with them during these trips.
Recent news about students who sadly had unfortunate incidents during their school-sanctioned fields only made parents more concerned about the safety of their kids. Although the Department of Education had made a statement that it is not compulsory for students to join and has an option to instead be given an activity, kids would normally feel left out hence parents are made to choose. Now the task falls to school authorities to look for places that the kids would be safe and still enjoy the experience.
