SC Batch 2 3rd-Year Anniversary: Corregidor - Beauty behind Ruins

May 5, 2011 - My office batchmates and I celebrated our 3rd-year Anniversary, as employees of our beloved company, via a simple lunch @ Kanin Club, TechnoHub, QC.

That was my first time to eat at Kanin Club and TRUE ang mga raves tungkol sa kanya. Ang bongga ng mga "flavored" rice nila - very Filipino. I love their Tinapa Rice & Bagoong Rice. Medyo di ko feel ang kaasiman ng Sinigang Rice nila. For me, parang sobrang asim...malamang kase sinigang nga sya diba? haha. Well, baka ako lang naman yun. haha. Ngayon lang din ako nakatikim ng Binukadkad na Tilapia. haha. Kala ko naman kung ano na yun, pritong tilapia lang na binukadkad. haha. hanudaw?


Anyway, bilang nasanay na may getaway tuwing anniv, our whole batch booked for a Corregidor Tour via Sun Cruises

At arrival in Corregidor, these cute "tour buses" welcomed us at the port. These are actually replicas of the trams used in the island during World War II.

This is the first time I set foot on this island. I did NOT expect that much about the island since sabi ng mga nakapunta na it's more of a History class field trip - may isang batang hindi bet ang History class. Sino kaya yun? haha. 


tadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...

BUT when I saw the ruins, I was in extreme AWE. I have nothing but praises and appreciations on how beautiful the island is. Ang ganda ng register ng ruined buildings, armory at iba pa sa camera. Ang sarap mag-emote sa bawat picture tas kunwari mowdel ka at nasa photo shoot. LOL. Or pede ka ring mag-emote sa camera at isipin mo pre-nup pic niyo yun. haha. Inarte! lol.



Vanie - ang gandang subject ng girlalung ito. hihi. diba noh?
When Corregidor was attacked by foreign colonizers and the island was in extreme downfall, who would have thought that remnants of these ruins would turnout to a beautiful picturesque? I fell in love with this place. Ang saya niyang picture-an. :)





isn't she such a cutey? ^__^

All in all, nag-enjoy ako nang BONGGA sa trip na to. Thanks to Pol, our tour guide, na bumanat ng mga kung anu-anong jokes kaya hindi kami na-bore. In fact, I find Pol's history stories about the island interesting. :) Also, thanks to my batchmates na naka-isip na magpunta kami dito at sa napakaraming pichur-pichur moment at sa napakaraming "at iba pa" moments. haha. hanudaw?

Something I realized after the trip: You can never really imagine what good it can give you despite unfortunate or even WORST circumstances. When you feel that God had abandoned you because of all the bad things that's happening to your life right now, isipin mo na lang na God is planning and preparing you for something BIG - BIGGER than you can ever imagine and GREATER than your GREATEST dream. ;)
