Caliraya Teambuilding

Lake Caliraya was created in 1937 by US Army Engineer Major General Hugh J. Casey by flooding the Cavinti valley of the Sierra Madre to generate hydroelectric power for Manila. It was sabotaged by retreating Americans to prevent use by invading Japanese who rebuilt it, then themselves sabotaged it as their own defeat approached. The Americans seeded the lake with largemouth bass, and through the years, the lake has remained the most popular bass fishing spot in the country. It was 'discovered' in the early 70's by Manila tourists who then popularized the lake to Manila's elite and expatriate community. Property values increased even more so when the main road to the lake was paved and the hydroelectric plant refurbished. Caliraya later became a high-end neighborhood of vacation homes for the rich and famous. An example is the De Padua vacation home, built in 1974. That was until the 1980s, when Lake Caliraya's surroundings were occupied by the New People's Army, which affected tourism and development. Nevertheless, since 1985, there has been major real estate development, with the construction of several world class resorts, golf courses and country clubs. Caliraya continues to be a haven for the rich and the elite, with activities including large mouth bass fishing, wind surfing, jet skiing, water skiing, boating, golf, camping, and other sporting and outdoor activities. Property values remain high, and a new generation of developments, both private and commercial, is on the rise.

OFF TOPIC: Tribute to President Corazon "Cory" Aquino - 1933 - 2009

Salamat President Cory sa katapangan, katatagan at tyaga na inalay mo sa sambayanang Pilipino para sa demokrasyang tinatamasa ng mga Pilipino hanggang ngayon.

Nawa'y magsilbing gabay ang iyong sinumulan para sa mga namumuno at mamumuno sa bansang Pilipinas.

Nawa'y ang iyong katapatan at may takot sa Diyos na pasisilbi sa bayan ay maging halimbawa para sa mga pinuno at kawani ng gobyerno ng Pilipinas.

Nawa'y maging gabay ng bawat Pilipino ang pinaglaban mo at ng sambayanang Pilipino noong taong 1986 para sa demokrasya ng bansa.

Nawa'y ang pagkakaisa ng mga Pilipino sa People Power noong 1986 ay maipagpatuloy ng kasalukuyang henerasyon.

Nawa'y sumulong sa kaunlaran ang bansang Pilipinas para masuklian natin ang paghihirap na ginawa ni President Cory.

Nawa'y natuto na ang mga Pilipino sa naging aral ng People Power noong 1986.

Nawa'y mahalin nating mga Pilipino ang bansang Pilipinas tulad ng pagmamahal ni President Cory.

Nawa'y tunay na paglilingkod ang ibigay ng pinuno at kawani ng gobyerno sa mga Pilipino.

Mga Pilipino gumising muli tayo sa ating pagkakaidlip, buhayin muli natin ang diwa ng People Power na pinangunahan ni Presidente Cory. Ngayon na wala na si Ninoy, Cory at Cardinal Sin handa pa ba tayong mga Pilipino na ituloy ang laban nila para umunlad ang Pilipinas para sa mga susunod na henerasyon. Magkaisa tayo, mahalin natin ang kapwa natin Pilipino, mahalin natin ang Pilipinas.

Salamat Sen. Ninoy, Salamat Pres. Cory, Salamat Cardinal Sin. Ako mismo mamahalin ko ang Pilipinas katulad ng pagmamahal nyo.

May God bless Philippines...
