I first visited Coron in August of 2009 in what served as the peak moments of my last relationship - soon a few weeks after that the whole thing crumbled but the memories of the place remained stoically unhinged by life's untimely jab. The place became one of my favorites among the places I set foot on. It was a popular 'touristy' place but it does not matter as there's something about the green waters, the blue skies, the laid back seaside town that endeared to me.

An underwater camera is a 'must bring' in Coron because the sights below the water is as scenic as the ones above it. Divers spent most of the time below than above whenever they visit Coron. However, for us who have never experienced diving, we had to make do with trying to go as deep as we could just to get a decent and "post-able" photograph underwater, though it resulted into an endless array of hilarious images.

Culion Island is historic in a number of few unconventional reasons, one of which is its selection by the Americans to become a "segregation island" in 1901 to serve as a place where patients afflicted with the Leprosy condition be bought and treated.

It was at the dead of the night and I was sweating like tomorrow's ain't guaranteed and from the darkness ahead I can hear the war breathing of the enemy, waiting to pounce on our position, timing their attack and any second from now I anticipate with dead reckoning the throngs of footsteps and the loud echoing of their battle cries.

Last Holy Thursday I went to Bataan for a day long 'Visita Iglesia' at some of its historic Spanish colonial churches located in the town of Samal, Abucay, Orion, Orani, Balanga and Pilar with a side trip earlier that day at the World War II memorial atop the scenic Mount Samat.

Last Maundy Thursday I went to Bataan to do my Visita Iglesia since my supposed Holy Week trip to Romblon didn't pushed through. I decided to visit some old Spanish colonial churches in Bataan and also to make time for a side trip to Mt. Samat War Memorial which is just fitting since I consider myself as a World War II history junky.
