Life at the Lake | PUSOD TLCC(Taal Lake) and Globe Telecom

#GlobeOfGood PUSOD Taal Lake

Life at the lake starts with a roadtrip with friends, bound for Brgy. Kinalaglagan, Mataas na Kahoy, Batangas. We had plans to check out Pusod Taal Lake Conservation Center (TLCC), and just take some time for an adventure outside the urban jungle. What we experienced though is something far more breathtaking than a mere beautiful postcard scenery...

This sailboat was made by fellow bloggers last year, and was painted and finished by Batangans. As it is still usable and looks pretty durable, I'd say it's a win! :D
PUSOD Taal Lake Conservation Center (TLCC) is the place to go if you want to rest, relax, get a chance to camp under the stars or experience something more than the usual hotels nearby the Taal Volcano View. You can absorb the true Lake Life, and help the community and the lake itself when you decide to stay at TLCC.

This is because PUSOD TLCC advocates for the rehabilitation of Taal Lake and it's ecosystem, as well as helping the community by giving opportunities and teaching them on how to diversify their means of living. And they have achieved so much, with the help of Globe Telecom and their corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities aimed to help protecting and enhancing the ecosystems in the PH. This advocacy is aptly called "Globe of Good".

Pako Salad, GInisang Puso ng Saging, Sinaing na Tawilis with Mustasa and Bulanlang(soup)
A stay at PUSOD TLCC will mean experiencing the outdoors in a closer and more intimate way, and lots of awesome Batangas food like Bulanlang (a vegetable stew with squash and saluyot), Adobong Chicken and Pork, Sinaing na Tawilis with Mustasa, ginisang puso ng saging and Pako salad. Which is VERY RARE nowadays in manila, and is a better alternative to the usual lettuce in my opinion because it is so light and refreshing. :D Of course, fresh fruits that are in season as well are up for grabs to end the meal.

Different water sports activities are also available when you stay here. You can go for Kayaking, Wind surfing, learn how to drive a Manual Sailboat or do Stand Up Paddle Surfing.

When doing stand up paddle surfing, we kneel first before we stand. :)


I tried out the Stand Up Paddle for myself, and I never thought that I would do something like this ever. One check for my bucketlist! It was a bit hard at first, but I got the hang of it eventually. It was such an awesome core workout and I had lots of fun! Special thanks to my pro instructor, Tono Legarda. Also, Mr. Michael Storer handles the Sailboat classes and he's been doing it for decades!

Spread the love of nature and get to help out the neighboring communites of Taal Lake and Taal volcano when you stay here at PUSOD TLCC. They offer not just what I stated above but also tours to Taal Lake and trekking to Taal volcano itself for a minimal fee, part of which is donated to the betterment of the community and the clean up of the lake.

They need at least 200 visitors in a month (or more!) to sustain local economic development so go on and grab your #SummerFeels anytime of the year at PUSOD TLCC!

  1. Hi Nicole! I really like your blog's photos. Taal Lake is really one of the nearest destinations in Manila that you can go to. It's a quick nature trip, and the sunset is just as nice. I hope to visit Taal Town soon too!

  5. I hope I get the opportunity to go there again. It has been at least more than two decades since I went there and I don't remember much of anything, except that I had been there once. I like how the local government and agencies are working to increase the awareness and thereby gaining more tourists, which would help the local community. Great job. As for you, my friend... LOOKING GOOD!
