Hello, I’m back in this virtual world and sharing another episode of Chasing Potatoes’ adventures. This time, my friends and I went camping in Toledo specifically along Lake Bensis. Ever since this Lake Bensis circulated in social media due to some controversies, I got interested in visiting this Lake haha. The more they want to hide it, the more people (like me) desire to visit it, charot!

 I know some people don’t want the place to “geotag” Lake Bensis, but sad to say the place has already been tagged in Google Map. Fortunately it is pinned in the wrong direction, that’s why we got lost in locating it. And for the other locals whom we asked for directions and didn’t know the place, maybe because it has another name which is Lake Pingganon. The name Lake Bensis was not familiar to them.


Check this video out on how we got lost.

My other friends rode habal-habal for Php 500.00  which included going back to Cebu City ( pakyaw system – JY Lahug, Cebu City to Toledo and back to JY Lahug, Cebu City). That’s also how costly and far Lake Bensis is. Luckily for me, I hitched a ride in going there.

And the legs Doc Jack saw were maybe just branches of a tree. He just mistook them for human legs in his the desire to see a local because we were already lost and we wanted to ask for directions. It was just a funny moment imagining strange things, hahahaha! (𝑰 𝒋𝒖𝒔𝒕 𝒑𝒖𝒕 𝒇𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝒄𝒂𝒓𝒕𝒐𝒐𝒏 𝒍𝒆𝒈𝒔 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒓𝒆𝒇𝒆𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒄𝒆,𝒉𝒂𝒉𝒂)

If ever you want to experience visiting this lake in Toledo, please, please be sure to always dispose your trash properly. Leave no trace always.

P.S. I apologize in advance for my awkwardness, but believe me I tried.  I’m not good in speaking too, so please bear with me. HEHE 😊. If you do like my video don’t forget to subscribe my YouTube channel

How about you? Have you visited Lake Bensis?  🤣 Tell me about your story.   I would love to hear from you? Please connect thru  my FB page and Instagram. Join me in my adventure and misadventure. Let’s chase those potatoes.

Those naughty potatoes roll so fast that I could hardly catch up with them in LAKE BENSIS. I wonder what place will they be venturing next. So stay tuned for my next chasing potatoes adventure.

Chasing Potatoes

Why Chasing Potatoes? I’m Chasing Potatoes. I chase time and opportunities because just like round potatoes they roll and get lost. I chase them to store memories to last a lifetime. I make haste, running after them, fearful that they might be gone. That’s why I go places on land or in water.My story tells about the journey of chasing time and saying yes to wonderful opportunities.
