RCF Travel: Marinduque

The purpose of life after all is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.

Day 1 : Marinduque Hot Spring

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

 

From the day we arrived, we went straight for a swimming at Marinduque’s hot spring in Malbog to decompress. It has two hot spring pools and the natural water is coming right from the Mountains. A good stop when you’re just trying to calm and comfort yourself. I only just hate that there’s no cold water available inside because even the water in shower rooms was about two times hotter.

Smell the sea, and feel the sky. Let your soul and spirit fly.

And our afternoon went like..

Spent the whole day lying down on the floor of my Uncle’s Nipa Hut thingy and trying to savor the moment whilst breathing natural, unpolluted and fresh air.

There are actually three islands in Marinduque, they are named after the three kings Melchor, Gaspar and Baltazar. Of all these islands, Gaspar is the most popular and found the most safest place to visit unlike of the other two.

I super love how we spent some-hours going along in the middle of the sea and me sitting on triangular edge of the boat. YASS! (FAVE WORD LEL) Another thing crossed off on my bucket list!

We just first went to the other side of the island because my Uncle wants to show us his very own darlings the not-your-ordinary-size-of-goats. My first time to encounter bunch of ’em.

Day 4 : Boac x Moriones Fest

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

The Moriones is an annual festival held on Holy Week on the island of Marinduque, Philippines. The “Moriones” are men and women in costumes and masks replicating the garb of biblical Roman soldiers as interpreted by local folks. The Moriones or Moryonan tradition has inspired the creation of other festivals in the Philippines where cultural practices or folk history is turned into street festivals. (Wikipedia)

Moriones oldies ver.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to witness my uncle in his penitence/public penance where he’s using antipo to hit himself on the back right after it was being wounded by a blade, then they will go straight to the sea to wash .. (Imagine the pain...)
