Secret of 'Linaw Bubong' Freshness

We're refreshed and cool off the summer heat after we explored "Linaw Bubong", an Ilonggo dialect which refers to a crystal clear well, The native of the place has called it for its fresh water which runs from the said spring, a top of Barangay San Miguel, one of the 14 barangay in the small city of La Carlota, Negros Occidental, Philippines.

This was our unforgettable experience we got when sometime in the month of April in 2013, my whole family spent a day in Linaw Bubong. Everyone of us couldn't resist the inviting fresh water of the said spring. We stayed more than 2 hours on the water. My son-in-law, Almon since he knew how to swim, dived to the water and surfaced with a big smile. Our small grandchildren just played on the shallow area of the "bubong".

Not only the freshness of the water has made us cool and relaxed, also the ambiance, the surroundings where fresh air so abounding have released us from the stress which usually sensed and felt in our abode in the city.

"Linaw Bubong" is situated in a private property owned by a sugarcane planter, one of the prominent family in the city. From La Carlota, it could be reached via a motorized tricycle. It is almost 200 meters away from the main road.

I already knew this place when I was a kid. But I'd never gone to this place. The location is an ideal for a family excursion. Since it is a private property, it's not fully developed. It is just a summer hangout among cliques, barkada.

Those excursionists would just put up their improvised tentage or shelter just beside the bank of the river. It could also be placed under the growing trees around the place or beside the non-spiked bamboo trees grown on the riverbank.

To stay out of the scorching heat of summer, Linaw Bubong is an ideal to cool yourself, your family, your group or even sweethearts.

Cool it off, Linaw Bubong awaits you.

    1. No, it is not a hidden. It is frequented by the public for it is free. Since I was a kid, this spring already existed. Only when I have my own family, that is, the time I came over to this place.

    1. It is free. It is open to the public. However, everyone should be responsible for his trash since this property belongs to a private person.

  5. I remember Lakawan River in Quezon where our family used to swim and relax for free. I hope Linaw Bubong will remain clear and free from pollution. - KarenT

    1. It is well maintained by the people who live near that river. They're responsible for the cleaning and of gathering trashes scattered all over the riverbank.
