This is in behalf of the Municipality of Maragondon, Cavite. We are very glad that a picture of mountain hikers in one of the beautiful spots of Maragondon, Cavite, i. e. MT. PICO DE LORO was chosen as one of the top ten finalists in the search for Photos to shake the World Contest by Assist. However, in the entry #12 by Louise Mae Ladio, it was erroneously idenfied as ” which straddles the towns of Ternate in Cavite and Nasugbu in Batangas.” I WOULD LIKE TO INFORM YOU THAT IT IS AT THE PEAK OF THE SAID MOUNTAIN THAT LIES THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN MARAGONDON, CAVITE AND NASUGBU, BATANGAS. IT IS MARAGON DON, CAVITE AND NASUGBU, BATANGAS THAT SHARE THE MT. PICO DE LORO AND NOT TERNATE, CAVITE. Please immediately make corrections because yes, it is a pride for Mt. Pico de Loro but it ires most of the Maragondonians because of the error on the jurisdiction stated.
