Campuestohan Highland Resort’s huge replica of T-Rex dinosaur rose again Saturday after being toppled down by super typhoon Odette on December 12, 2021, a press release from CHR said.
On January 20, Ricardo “Cano” Tan, CHR’s founder, supervised the re-installation of the huge T-Rex.
As Tan had promised, earlier, that, “I will pull her up, raise her and we will rise together,” a major part of the T-Rex rose again last week. But since the crane could not carry the whole structure, they decided to do it by phases.
The huge T-Rex and the super long-necked dinosaur were among the most photographed tourist attractions at CHR in Talisay, Negros Occidental.
“Even if this dino falls a hundred times, it does not matter to me. What matters most is how we rise together after the fall. Like these dinosaurs, we can stand up again to face the challenges together,” Tan said.
The dinos are back solid and resilient. “It’s not how many times you get knocked down that count, it’s how many times you get back up,” he said quoting George A. Custer.*
