Philippines is one of the most beautiful country in Asia. People are so nice, the view is great and breath taking. Eastern Samar is the province where I came from. Lot's of coconut farms, rice fields and fishing in the area. Life is very simple, yet people are up to date. The dance called " Kuratsa" is very popular in this area. From politicians, socialites and normal or ordinary people dances "Kuratsa". People loves to chat, go swimming and stay out. I love this place! And I miss this place too. Giporlos is the town where I grew up, a town that I will always love and be greatful of. One day I will come back with a big smile and dance with my Kababayans.

It is a place where a rock stands in the middle of the ocean. Years ago when there was no road yet, we take big passenger boats to go to Tacloban where school is, we pass on this place and is very wavy, many believes there's a mermaid in this place.
