Kagitingan: Corregidor, Bataan and their heroic legacy

MILE LONG BARRACKS.  Measuring 1, 520 feet, This is reportedly the longest military barracks in the world. During the American Commonwealth and before World War 2, this structure housed some 8,000 U.S. troops. These ruins are all that are left after Japanese forces bombarded the area.

As the Philippines celebrates its heroes –April 7th is Tribute to Veterans Day, and April 9th is Araw ng Kagitingan or National Heroes’ Day -- it is good to remember Corregidor and Bataan. These two places have become synonymous with Filipino and American courage and determination in protecting
our freedom. 

Here are some things to recall about these two historical sites:

1) Both Bataan and Corregidor are legendary in the history of war. Despite relentless attacks by Japanese forces in 1942, and without reinforcements coming from the United States, Filipino and American troops fought back for several months.
2) Bataan fought from January 7, 1942 until April 9, 1942 after being overwhelmed by superior Japanese firepower and troop numbers. After some 76,000 Filipino and American troops surrendered, they were forced to walk around 96 to more than 100 kilometers from Bataan to Capas, Tarlac. This was the infamous Bataan Death March.
3) From December 29, 1941 until May 6, 1942, the Japanese Imperial Army attacked Corregidor and dropped thousands of bombs on the island. On May 6, the leader of all US and Filipino Allied forces in Asia, Lt. Gen. Jonathan Wainwright, led his men in their surrender to the Japanese. They fought as long and as hard as humanly possible.
4) Corregidor Island is the site of the Pacific War Memorial. The Memorial has the Dome of Peace, and a sculpture called the Eternal Flame of Freedom. There’s also the Pacific War Memorial Museum that houses World War 2 memorabilia.  It is now considered as the world's biggest war museum.

For Corregidor Ocular10 photo -
BATTERY HEARN. This 12-inch (350 mm) artillery gun fired 1,000 pound mortar shells and was the longest gun on Corregidor island. It spun 360 degrees on its rotating platform and launched shells as far as 27 kilometers. It didn't see action during the Corregidor siege because of its position. It's famous because Japanese soldiers took their victory "Banzai!" photo beside this gun.

Kusina De Maria Chicken Wings The Best in Cubao

Kusina de Maria is also known as  KDM Food Express

Joining the roster of restaurants that specializes in chicken wings is Kusina de Maria, a casual dining place that serves comforting flavors of food. A family-run hole-in-the-wall food joint, Kusina de Maria is bright, fun and comfy place. It's the kind of place that everyone enjoys, be they having breakfast, lunch with friends or colleagues, a family enjoying a weekend out or a couple on a casual date. 

There are numerous food joints that offer flavored buffalo wings judging by the constant influx of hungry customers looking for their fill of juicy flavored chicken wings. But only one seems to attract a long line in the heart of Cubao. Kusina de Maria has yet to be discovered by foodies. I guess I was one of the lucky ones who were able to try the delicious food that they offer. Kusina de Maria specializes in chicken wings but they also offer other interesting foods as well. 

Named after the owner's wife, Marian--Kusina de Maria has opened their doors to the public last February 2019. But it has received the word of mouth among hardcore buffalo fans because they seem to have perfected the chicken wing concept at an unbelievably affordable price. 

Located in the heart of Cubao Quezon City it is a hole-in-the-wall eatery

Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach makes history as the First Ever Filipino Wax Figure at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong!

2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach with her "twin" wax figure which will be on display at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach once again made history. After winning the coveted Miss Universe crown back in 2015, Pia Wurtzbach became the very first Filipino wax figure in one of Hong Kong's favorite tourist destinations, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. 

Guess who the real Pia Wurtzbach is!

The iconic wax figure wears a replica of the Swarovski-embellished royal blue gown ball made by no less than Filipino popular international couturier Michael Cinco, which Pia wore when she passed on the crown in 2016. The dress was said to be tailor-made by the designer himself, saying, "Dressing up her wax figure to represent our country (are) already an honor and a great experience in my career. It is an impalpable dream come true."

So what was Pia's reaction about her being chosen as the very first Filipino wax figure? She said she didn't even think twice about saying yes. She was so honored to be chosen among other Filipino personalities.

"When I found out, I was so excited. I couldn't believe it! In my head, this is something only happens to big stars,"Pia says. "Now, thinking that I'm going to be one of them, I'm very honored, I'm very grateful."
