The La Mesa Watershed and Eco-Park consists of the La Mesa Dam and LA MESA Ecological NATURE RESERVE site in Quezon City commissioned in 1929 in the Philippines.

It is part of the Angat-Ipo-La Mesa water system, which supplies most of the water supply of  Metro Manila. The La Mesa Dam is an earth dam whose reservoir can hold up to 50.5 million cubic meters and occupying an area of 27 square kilometers.

The water collected in the reservoir is treated on-site by the Maynilad Water Services, and at the Balara Treatment Plant further south by the Manila Water. Both water companies are private concessionaires awarded by the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System, the government agency in charge of water supply. It is a vital link to the water requirements of 12 million residents of Metro Manila considering that 1.5 million liters of water pass through this reservoir everyday. It is also the last forest of its size in the metropolis.

What does a Pinoy ADV Rider do to relax once he reaches his destination?

What else, fire up the grill!

Flame Grilling is a dry-heat cooking method that rely on heat being conducted through the air from an open flame. This type of cooking produces browning reactions on the surface of the food, thus encouraging the development of complex flavors and aromas.

Because air is a poor conductor of heat, grilling requires the food to be quite close to the open flame.
Just make sure only the flame touches the meat.

Thus the surface of the food cooks very quickly, making this type of cooking ideal for extremely tender cuts of meat, poultry or fish. In fact, because of the extremely hot and dry nature of this cooking method, it is customary to marinate items that will be grilled.

I marinate the meat with these.


Eating time!
