        PBA Moto Club visits Howie Severino’s Batangas lakeside retreat

        Maierhofer and the crew were left in awe of Kapusod
        by John Paulo Aguilera Apr 3, 2021

        The PBA Moto Club recently got back on the road and headed to the Kapusod green resort in Mataasnakahoy, Batangas.

        The 1,500 square meter property near Taal Lake is owned by broadcast journalist Howie Severino and his wife, environmental lawyer Ipat Luna. Kapusod, which has an earth dome and tree house, is home to a variety of endemic plants.

        While waiting for the rest of the group, Rico Maierhofer explained why some of their members like Jayjay Helterbrand are more active than the others:

        Sa mga nagtatanong kung bakit wala sila James Yap, (Mark) Caguioa, (Marc) Pingris, yung mga fans nila, ang main reason is may practice na sila. Preparation na ng PBA, and siyempre priority nila yung basketball before riding.

        Kaming mga retired na, we have all the time in the world. Kaya we can enjoy the scenery, views, and camaraderie, di ba? Kahit kalaban namin before nakakasama na namin ngayon, sila Kuya Yancy (de Ocampo), Kuya Denok (Miranda), Jayjay, Lamont (Waters), Sol (Mercado), even our coaches Jorge (Gallent) and Topex (Robinson).

        Maierhofer and gang soon arrived at Kapusod and were left in awe of the place. The group then asked Severino what it was like to be 10km away from Taal Volcano when it last erupted in January of last year.

        The media personality recalled: “It’s a 14km danger zone. But we were watching it for half an hour, taking selfies. We had to leave because we’re being told to leave, and everyone was leaving. But all the ash was going there, dito manipis lang yung ash.

        As for the name Kapusod, Severino explained, “Because next door was the Pusod (Taal) Conservation Center, plus magkakapuso tayong lahat sa Mother Nature.”

        At one point in the video, Maierhofer, Helterbrand, and Mercado also congratulated fellow PBA JC Intal for his recent retirement.
