Corregidor Island Day Tour

March 24, 2007

Corregidor Island

The Cookies together with our close friends from AIU-RP went to visit historical Corregidor Island for a day tour.

I have been to Corregidor a couple of years ago, but even so, this visit is truly memorable since I get to share with my good friends from AIU-RP and of course, I have my Cookie to share this wonderful adventure with. :)

First stop was a tour of the Topside of the tadpole-shaped island. This is a photo of the Cookies with the Middleside Barracks in the background.

Well, the green shirt was planned, so no more asking questions about it later, please. :P It is cute, right? One of the staff on the cruise even commented about it. Hehehe...

We visited the different batteries of big guns and mortars. There is Battery Way, Battery Geary, Battery Hearn, and Battery Crocket, the one with the big disappearing gun. Cool! !!
After some hours of touring, our tummies started to rumble. And so, we had a lot to eat at the buffet table at the Corregidor Inn. We loved the Chicken Afritada. I enjoyed the Pork Pot Roast and Buttered Veggies, too. I didn't quite find a liking at any of the food served at the dessert table, so that one I passed.

The Cookies are such movie addicts. How can we let this opportunity to have our photo taken at the ruins of the Cine Corregidor pass?

We even matched the color of the sign board! Hehehe... :D

We also had our photo taken inside the ruins. Too bad, the walls at the stage have already been victimized by vandals. Sad. Some people are just so inconsiderate and disrespectful of culture and history. Sigh.

By 2:30, the tourists are all ready back aboard M/V Sun Cruiser II for the one and a half hour trip back to Manila.
With sunburns on our arms, sweaty and sticky skin, we all went home with big smiles, and wonderful memories. ;)
