Historical and Spooky Places in Bataan

Have you been fascinated with spooky places? I do. But, I may not be that brave to visit one. It is enough to read or watch about them on documentaries.  

However, in 2006, I was fortunate to visit Corregidor, Bataan, through the invitation of a pharmaceutical company. The trip, albeit, short gave me the chance to relax from all the busy schedule while covering the health beat. 

I’m sharing here some of the photos I took of that trip

In the photo were some members of the media and a group of public relations officers. 

Today, Malinta Tunnel is the venue of an audio-visual presentation by National Artist Lamberto V. Avellana of events that occurred during World War II.

Besides the historical value of the place, the Malinta Tunnel is regarded as one of the most hunted tunnels in the country. 

Ms. Stargazer encircled the images of what she perceives as ghosts.

The tunnel saw thousands of Japanese soldiers who performed suicide instead of surrendering to the American troops during the Second World War.

These photos are not meant to scare you but only share them in observance of All Souls DayLet us offer a prayer for the souls of those who perished inside the tunnel.

Despite the eerie feels, I would still go back to visit Corregidor in the future.

How about you, have you had the same eerie experience in your past or recent travels?

European adventure

I came across a blog site of a young Filipino couple who loves to travel abroad. One of the recent entries is about their European tour. Only last May, the young couple visited a medieval city in Belgium. They were not able to fully elaborate what they saw in Belgium besides an overwhelming description of chocolates they found on display in the shops of Bruges. The entry is also loaded with pictures of the couple with the beautiful sites of Belgium serving as backdrop. They are just lovely.

Another blog entry that is too interesting (especially for postcard collectors) not to share is their project fridge which involves sending postcards to their relatives and friends and buying magnets to stick it with from the places they have traveled.

I may not know the couple personally but I sure learned a lot from their European adventure.

Mommy Clang of Kizuna never fails to send me a Christmas card every year. This is the third postcard that she sent me. I really wish to meet her in person one day. Thanks Clang for remembering me and keeping me in your Christmas list always. Merry Christmas to you and your family! 🙂

Cheers to 2012!!!
