Are you thinking of doing your own P500 project day tour? Well, who am I to stop you from enjoying and exploring?

One day, James, who is from Los Baños (Elbi or LB) offered to take some bloggers on a day tour of not more than P500 around Elbi on May 8. I’ve been to Los Baños before and I never thought much about the place or that there may be something more in Elbi. So, I signed up, after all, I’d get to meet other bloggers like Ivan of Batang Lakwatsero, Chin Chan of Juanderful Pinoy, Eileen Campos of Possibly Pinay and Lloyd of The Lostboy Lloyd and as an additional note, learn
