Historical and Spooky Places in Bataan

Have you been fascinated with spooky places?

I may be reading or watching documentaries about haunted places, but I don’t dare visit one.

But in 2006, we went to see the historical place of Corregidor through the invitation of friends from a pharmaceutical company. To be clear, we did not engage in ghost hunting.

The educational trip, albeit, short gave us the chance to relax from all the busy schedules of covering the health beat.

Sharing here some of the photos from the trip

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

Historically, Malinta Tunnel is regarded as one of the most haunted tunnels in the country. 

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

Ms. Stargazer encircled the images of what she perceived 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 don’t mean to scare you. I shared them to commemorate All Souls DayLet’s offer a prayer for the souls of those who perished inside the tunnel.

Despite the eerie feelings brought by the said trip, I would still go back to visit other areas of Corregidor.

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

Getting Ready for Summer

With the rollout of the COVID19 vaccines in the country, we are hopeful that we may experience a certain level of “normalcy” in the next few months. The idea of going back to activities that we loved excites us. We can somehow start planning the trips that have been canceled a year ago, including the itinerary for summer vacation.

It makes us feel good to make plans for the summer. So what we want to do when we can safely move? When it is okay to travel, my daughter plans to bring our family to the less crowded beach where we can take advantage of a beautiful day strolling on the seaside. We were stuck at home for most of the year, so a beach plan is something that makes us feel better.

We don’t have a place in mind yet. But for now, we’re checking on essentials to bring for the weekend getaway. Aside from food, I want to secure one piece swimsuits for myself and my daughter. We are unsure about the swimming part, but it’s fine to bring one. Modest swimwear will work for me since I’m on the heavy side.

I have checked a website that sells single piece swimsuits. I’m surprised that Lime Ricki offers 3X sizes. It would better fit me, or I would go for size 4X.

Besides the simple yet stylish design, the swimsuits are made of comfortable materials. I’m glad they have this line for plus-size women. I could comfortably have fun in the sun with all the support I need to enjoy the beach. 

Boots and Gloves

When looking for that special gift for that person who believes in protecting their family and property, you need to think about getting tactical equipment and gear from TacticalDistributors.com. You can’t go wrong enhancing that individual’s stockpile and capability to defend and protect with top of the line survival and tactical equipment to include footwear, gloves, vests, first aid kits, clothing and accessories.

The Internet provides some of the best military tactical gloves currently on the market. With their superior design in high grade materials, they are constructed to last in the harshest environment. With these gloves, your fingers are protected and maintain the critical ability to keep the fingers mobile to allow you to complete the mission. Some gloves may keep your hands warm. Some may allow your fingers to have dexterity. These gloves have both and well worth the price. You will be able to fire a weapon, participate in hand to hand combat and even operate a computer with these tactical gloves.

In addition to protecting your hands, protecting one’s feet is very important. Many a battle has been lost because a soldier had poor footwear. When your feet go, you lose you capability to move, which is critical to succeed. You want footwear that is comfortable, durable and provides the peace of mind of being able to take on any situation.

Remember, when selecting tactical gloves and boots, it is important not to sacrifice quality for price. Do your research on name brands and manufacturers. That last thing one wants, when the situation calls for it, is to have an equipment malfunction that decreases one’s chance to survive. It could be the matter of life or death.
