Road Trip: Day Dreaming in Fantasy World

An abandoned theme park in Lemery, Batangas was our playground for the day as we took time off from our usual production related work. Built in the early 2000s, the management behind Fantasy World couldn't see through the park's completion due to financial and corporate troubles.

On June 15, 1991, the wrath of a raging beast was felt not just in the Philippines but affected the entire world. Ash blanketed the metro and global temperatures dropped by about 0.5 °C for 3 years. Mt. Pinatubo took hundreds of lives and left thousands homeless. But today, she's blooming.

Manila Bay

Manila Bay, bay of the South China Sea extending into southwestern Luzon Island, Philippines. Almost completely landlocked, it is considered one of the world’s great harbours and has an area of 770 sq mi (2,000 sq km) with a 120-mi (190-km) circumference. Its widest diameter, from northwest to southeast, measures 36 mi. Corregidor Island, 30 mi west of Manila, divides the bay’s 11-mi-wide entrance into two channels—the seldom used South Channel and the safer, 2-mi-wide North Channel between Bataan Peninsula and Corregidor.
