Corregidor

What I knew about Corregidor before the trip:

1. It's located in Manila, later on I realized I was referring to Intramuros.

2. It's not an island. I thought I could go there by bus.

3. People resides in the area. I thought I could hire a tricycle to go around.

4. I wasn't really aware how historical it was.


See, I must have missed a lot of my SIBIKA back in elementary. I remember names like McArthur, Eisenhower, but not much details about Corregidor. Shame.

The trip, by boat, was about an hour and a half from Manila. We arrived in the island at about 9:30AM and got in to one of these buses:

We moved around the island accompanied by a tour guide. I was amazed. Definitely more historical than I thought.
Dioni, Joy, Von, Mae, Me




There were lots of beautiful places, but I was specifically attracted with the ruins. Joy has a third eye and while reviewing the photos I took later, she saw entities, err, ghost. I've tried checking the photos myself, but couldn't really see anything except for some figures in the last two photos below. If you have a third eye, you may be able to see it clearly too.

We had 5 cameras that day. But all the photos with those things on them are from my camera. Weird?

Double click to enlarge:





They're called ghost orbs. A theory which, upon checking the internet, I think only few people believe and skeptics definitely reject. But I guess, the clarity of the ghosts in the images depends on the level of your sixth sense. Check them photos for yourself.


Advance Happy Halloween!!!

rio, really? u can see them? binilugan ng friend ko yan for me. took her two photos at a time to recognize kasi masakit daw sa ulo. ung nasa last 2 pictures lang talaga medyo naaaninag ko.

Ambo said...

Never been to Corregidor pero yung ruins na parang coliseum sa gitna ng dagat napuntahan ko *ang gulo ko* hahaha. E kasi visible sia sa Caylabne Resort sa Cavite. Kakainggit naman sana sumama ako hahaha. Kapag nagkayayaan kayo sa Sagada sama ako!

wanderingcommuter said...

r-yo said...

ganun. pang haloween talaga. ngayon pang mag-isa ako sa bhay.

seriously, wala akong makita hehe. but it's indeed a shame na hindi ko pa rin napapasyalan yan. naturingan pa akong undefeated history quiz champion sa college. :-)

Ely said...

Ambo, napuntahan mo ung colisuem via caylabne resort? hehe. Part naman daw siya ng Cavite. Hmmm, no plans for Sagada, yet.


wanderingcommuter, not sure about the bunkers, but there's an inn pang-overnight.


chyng, yep. 2150 for a day. lahat na yun. 2500 ata pag overnight.


thejournicler, sa pagkakaintindi ko, physically, sa Bataan siya.


ced, dami nga multo dun. harmless naman eh hehe. last gala na siguro to. LOL. bat closed ang blog mo?!?


r-yo, me too, guilty ako sa "wag maging dayuhan sa sariling bayan". hehe. Ok naman ung place, worth it. Medyo mabilisan nga lang and tour.

_ice_ said...

naku alam ko yang lugar na yan pero di ko pa napuntahan.. isa sa mga kilalang lugar yan kung saan gabi gabi daming mga multo ang nagpaparamdam at nagpapakita..

ang alam ko pan nakapunta ka jan kelang magsimba ka kasi susundan ka ng mga multo..

hala ka..nananakot pa hahahaha

Ely said...

ice, dami nga eh, hehe. pano yan di pa ako nagsisimba? LOL

RONeiluke, RN said...

i love horror stuff... interesting kasi hindi pa ako nakakakita ng mumu. hehehe! pero i'm not dreaming to see one...

naalala ko tuloy yung 'shutter' when looking at the pics. really creepy... may mga classifications nga ang mga multo. may orbs, poltergeists, at yung may physical forms... creepy... hehehe!

i love ruins too! para kang nagta-time travel. hehehe!

peace out!

CARLO said...

nakakapraning talaga yung mga orbs. hahahaha. Whenever I have a photo na may orb, gusto ko itapon.

Know what? You gave me and my friends an idea where to celebrate the halloween. - Corregidor!

hahaha. Thanks bro. :)

.::. Vanny .:. said...

naks. ghost hunting yata ang ipinunta nyo sa corregidor eh. hahaha.

i had a shot in camsur na napansin ko ding parang may girl na sumilip. kinuhanan ko frnd ko nun sa labas ng cave then pag tingin ko sa viewfinder, napasigaw ako kc may parang girl na dumungaw.

pero i convince myself din naman na puno lang yun. :)

dam-dam said...

andami naman ng mga kaluluwa.

Ely said...

sori Dak, that's supposed to be for Roneiluke. hehe


Carlo, pdng pd ang Corregidor. LOL. Overnyt kau mas masaya.


Vanny, parang ghost hunting nga. We did the same thing in Baguio at medyo hindi maganda nangyari, so ndi na namin inulit sa Corregidor. sa pictures na lang naghanap ng multo. hehehe

enrico said...

wow, rich kids. mahal ang bayad papuntang corregidor di ba?

medyo ayaw ko nung una i-click yung images baka may makita ako. buti na lang wala akong third eye. hehe. :9

Ely said...

enrico, hmmm, medyo mahal nga. Pero worth it naman kahit papano.

~Kinesics said...

Yup, I saw them ghosts. I, too have a sort of sixth sense. Whenever I feel another spirit roaming around, I get the goosebumps- which is a sign that "ghosts" are present...and I can see them, too! Only if they want to be seen though.

WHen I was younger, I used to be really scared, but I eventually got used to it. My mom told me not to be scared, as long as they do not hurt me or something :). I just accepted the fact that there are spirits around besides us.

And my nose bleeds when I see more than one of them.

~kinesics

PROSETITUTE said...

nakakainggit naman yan. how i wish makapunta rin ako jan sometime, at magpa-picture at mag-drowing ng mga red circles to indicate the alarming images of ghosts. :P

Ely said...

kinesics, that's exactly what Joy feels, with the goosebumps and all. But she doesnt nosebleed, just a headache, sometimes dizzy.

prosecute, LOL. if you have third eye, you can spot them easily.

gagitos said...

tangina kinilabutan ako sa first pic.. nakita ko eh.. nakita ko eh... waaaaahhhhh~~scarry... huhu..bat ko pa kasi tinignan..lol.
-
yeah.. historical din yun kasi dyan nagmula yung abu sayaf eh.. dyan din kasi yung massacre sa mga muslim ages 18-25

Ely said...

gagitos, talaga? kita mo rin? hehehe. So totoo nga. May 3rd eye ka din?

gagitos said...
