the link's not yet open as of yesterday...came home to Paete last
friday via Calamba and it's still closed...it's a good thing I was
able to sample the best "kinulob na itik" in Victoria, Laguna and got
to map some major roads there in my asking around  :P

wikimapia is a playground even for fools indeed who place tags and
useless, if not, misleading information. I was actually looking for a
restaurant near the crossing area when i stumbled on the proposed road
