As part of their visit to the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB), they went to the Makiling Botanic Gardens to have a glimpse of some parts of the Mount Makiling Forest Reserve (MMFR) which is also an ASEAN Heritage Park. After a short introduction and tour, they planted Malakatmon (Dillenia luzoniensis (S.Vidal) Matelli ex Dur. et. Jacks) and Baguilumbang (Reutealis trisperma (Blanco) Airy Shaw, Kew Bull.) at the Flora Filipiniana, a theme garden especially assigned for native trees that are collected within the Philippines.
