Manila Chinese Cemetery - Luxurious Compound for the Dead | Pinoy Wandering Boy

Manila Chinese Cemetery - Luxurious Compound for the Dead | Pinoy Wandering Boy | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

Contrary to what I have initially thought, the cemetery isn't off-limits to people who are not Chinese. Christians and Chinese Buddhists are in fact welcome here, assuming they want to be buried here, when they're dead of course. This explains the tombs that are pre-dominantly Catholic in architectural designs. Mormon and Protestant tombs can also be spotted in the area.

El Nido: A little piece of paradise with plenty of hidden treasures

El Nido: A little piece of paradise with plenty of hidden treasures | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it
There’s a few ways to get to El Nido. Most people arriving to Palawan come through Puerto Princessa. P.P. is roughly an 8 hour bus ride from El Nido – but Holy Roads Batman. Most of the journey is driven on roads that have so many potholes, the moon’s surface would look flat in comparison. It’s definitely a bumpy ride. You can also take a ferry up the coast, or down from the neighbouring island of Coron

Lucy Diaz's curator insight, May 13, 2013 2:52 PM

Ralph Waldon Emerson once said "Life is a journey,not a destination".  believe its the destination that matters most if we were to talk about Marinduque.  Just imagine the re-enactment of the Passsion of Christ. The preparation of the people of Marinduque just to perfect the "Sinakulo" - an entire to be exact, they said. Who can compare that?

The island doesn’t have any towns which would be considered overly large by Filipino standards. The port towns of Siquijor and Lorena are by far the largest, most likely due their limited connection to anything beyond the isolated world which exists here!

There's no doubt that Guisi is one of Guimaras' well-kept secret. This beach may not have the powdery white sands of Boracay or the long coastlines of Cagbalete but it does have that certain beauty that can only be appreciated if you look at it without comparing to the other known beaches.
