While the City is sleeps and very crowded Metro Manila, Philippines, on the outskirts of Manila in Muntinlupa City has a beautiful sunrise over the lake of Laguna de Bay. The breathtaking nature scenery and colourful sunrise is the most interesting to see in the morning while most of the community visits this place for their daily routine exercise, biking and jogging. You can also witness fisherfolks lug their paddles and nets from day to day, supplying the city and nearby towns with freshwater harvest. The fisherfolks of Muntinlupa draw livelihood from a nearby bastion of aquatic life, Laguna de Bay, the largest inland body of water in the Philippines, and a pool of life that has served as the center of the nearby community’s ecosystem. In order to survive, fisherfolks maximize different methods of fishing – setting up fish traps coined as “baklads,” constructing makeshift scoops out of bamboo and net, or by hauling large nets for a greater catch.
