 By Arabelle Jimenez, photos by Monch Henares

A refreshing change of environment with the Changan CS75 Plus at Mount Purro Nature Reserve.

"The only constant thing in life is Change," as Greek philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus (l.c. 500 BCE) would say. Fast-forward centuries today, one would ask, is it still applicable? It is said that change is brought about by creativity and discovery. As a result, change must be for the better, and the good of all mankind. So, it remains.

By Arabelle Jimenez with photos by Monch Henares

Our test-drive for the week, the 2020 Kia Sportage GT Line at Carlos "Botong" Francisco's home-museum along Dona Aurora Street in Angono, Rizal.

It’s so easy to figure out why this rapidly-urbanizing Rizal town has been regarded as the country’s “art capital” for the longest time. Upon entering it from C-6 and the lake shore road in Taytay, you will be welcomed by an artsy boundary arch with the painter’s easel.

Arriving safely at Luljetta's Hanging Gardens Spa with the 2020 Kia Sportage GT Line.

When the Motourismo team acceded to the age-old “Tayo na sa Antipolo” invitation, little did we know that we will be smitten by its charm and return just a few weeks later. From the rough road barangays on a 4 x 4 truck, the second time around would be on a well-loved nature-themed in this mountain resort on board a sleek SUV cut out for uphill drives—the Kia Sportage 2020.

When Batangas adopted the tourism slogan “It’s all here, it’s so near”, it wasn’t making an empty brag. Travel bugs from Metro Manila and neighboring provinces in the olden days knew that it was a consummate destination with its scenic contours, rich waters, lush marine life, succulent cuisine,and a colorful heritage and way of life reflective of the people’s character.
