Mariang Makiling Is New Center Of Attraction

We were surprised to see something new at the Kainan sa Palaisadaan. A statue of Mariang Makiling. She is believed to be a deity who used to help the poor people. The story goes that she reportedly gave them sacks of ginger or crops that turned into gold. After she was exploited by greedy men, she no longer made herself visible to the people. The magnificent Mt. Makiling is named after her.

Dining On Floating Huts

Although there is a big dining hall, most of the diners prefer to stay in the native huts floating on the fishpond.

Buddha Is At Kainan sa Palaisdaan Sa Bay, Too

As I strolled in the garden, I was surprised to see a big image of Buddha sitting at the ledge of the man-made waterfalls. I personally think it is out of place in the native-inspired restaurant, but Buddha is considered a good luck charm, so that could be the reason for its presence there.

More Huts Were Added

Too many floating huts were added, thus covering the nice view of my favorite structure. The place has become more humid, too. Maybe the additional huts are blocking the circulation of fresh air. I understand that they needed to expand to accommodate their growing number of diners, but personally, I'm not too happy with it.
