Puerto Princesa Day 54:02:00 PM
Last day in Palawan. We first went to Palawan Museum. I don’t get why some people find museums boring, but I find them incredibly fun. It’s history +sociology in one visit. I’m a nerd, so I actually read almost every description of the displays.
|Manunggul Jar, one of the most important artifacts here in the Philippines|
|Baybayin, the native handwriting|
|Me and Gabi at Baybay|
|Ultra fresh seaweed!|
|Coco Banana smoothie|
|Mixed Seafood sisig|
|Timbancaya family + me|
Then, off to Palawan Special Battalion WW-II Memorial Museum. I was struck by how little I know about their history. It wasn’t as glorified as the history of Cavite, my home town. It always horrify me how can people think of those kinds of torture. Then we went to Plaza Cuartel, where 143 American prisoners of war (POW) was burned alive. Only 11 of them survived.
I thank Gabi’s parents, Tito Omay and Tita Justine, now I know where she gets her endless genorisity and kindness. You’ve been beyond accommodating. I don’t think I have enjoyed a place quite like Puerto, and it was all because of these people.
