Top 10 Scariest Spots in Metro Manila


Since it's Halloween, I want to share to everyone the Top 10 scariest
 spot in Metro Manila. I got this from my email.

1) Ozone Disco

Seen and heard: Teenagers working the disco stick 'til the wee hours of the Ozone Disco, where 160 people burned to death and 95 others were injured in March 1996. Most of them were students celebrating their graduation. Every now and then, there are said to be glimpses and sounds of teen ghosts partying at the now unused building. "There were voices in agony when we went inside years ago. At first, we didn't realize what it was but as soon as we did, we ran to the exit," says Olivier Guevara, who used to go ghost hunting.

Approved for occupancy of only 35 people, Ozone Disco was packed with 400 people that fateful night in '96. With the emergency exit blocked by a new building nearby, Ozone Disco was "undoubtedly a deathtrap," Ismael Mathay, Quezon City mayor at that time, said. The Philippine Center on Transnational Crime called the Ozone Disco fire the worst fire in the Philippines.
Ozone Disco now stands in the middle of a restaurant and a moneychanger near the bustling Memorial Rotonda in Quezon City. Old, dirty and quiet, most people don't know it's the site of a tragedy that happened 13 years ago.

2) Capitol Medical Center, Quezon City

At the Capitol Medical Center, nobody uses a certain elevator. According to a doctor there, an orderly fell to his or her death in that elevator shaft. The orderly was talking to someone and didn't notice there was no elevator cabin when he or she stepped inside.

Nobody told this story to Kevin Sandiego. Sandiego, his father and his sister were supposed to get off at the second floor but the elevator took them to the basement. A man wearing slacks and a long-sleeved shirt got off at the basement and they followed him, thinking there was another way.

"The man turned to the left and so did we but there was no corridor, just a wall. The man vanished into thin air. We ran to the elevator but it was closed. We had to bang the elevator doors in almost complete darkness before it finally opened," Kevin says. A nurse later told them that the basement used to be a morgue.

3) Balete drive, Quezon City

Infamous enough to inspire a 1988 movie, Peque Gallaga's Hiwaga sa Balete Drive, Balete Drive is still one of the most whispered about haunted places in Manila. It is named after the balete trees, which are known to be homes of paranormal beings, along its road.

A white lady, bloody or faceless, is said to haunt the road at night, appearing in the backseats of taxis, seen in rearview mirrors. Some say she was raped and killed by a taxi driver, others say Japanese soldiers raped her during World War II. 

Motorists are advised to take alternate routes at night. If passing the road is unavoidable, there are several precautions: Make sure the backseat is fully occupied, don't look back and don't look in the mirrors.

 4. Q.C. Ville, Central Ave., Quezon City

A writer, who asked not to be named, tells of her aunt's house in Q.C. Ville where white dwarves,aswang and a white lady have been spotted. An aswang, a female flesh-eating creature in this case, was seen flying over their house. Its wings were heard flapping except when it flew over their roof, directly above where their altar is located inside. They also saw a white lady on the terrace of the house opposite theirs.   White dwarves, known as the kind ones, were heard eating in the middle of the night with their spoons and forks clanging. The residents have taken to leaving candy in the corners of their house for the dwarves.

"They've lived in Q.C. Ville before there were cemented pavements. It looked like a forest back then," says the writer.

5. Manila Film Center, Pasay City

Real ghosts or ghosts in our minds? Legend has it that hundreds of workers were buried alive in the Parthenon-like Manila Film Center after the upper floor collapsed in 1981. The construction of Former First Lady Imelda Marcos' "palace" was rushed to make it in time for the 1982 Manila International Film Festival. It is said that only a few workers were saved from the rubble and Marcos ordered cement to be poured over the bodies to meet her deadline. Some say that the ghosts of the workers haunt the building and still seek justice.

In 2005, Howie Severino and I-Witness produced a "half baked conclusion"Based on paper trail and interviews, Severino says, "Not more than a dozen died (we heard figures as high as 169, which was based on an Inquirer account of a spirit questor expedition years ago), and NONE of them were left behind in the Manila Film Center."

"Unless someone can produce the facts to prove otherwise, or even just relatives, the case of the missing workers inside the Manila Film Center must be one of the country's biggest urban legends ever," Severino says.

At present, the Manila Film Center is host to "The Philippines' Premiere Theatrical Family Show."

 6. University of Sto. Tomas, Manila 

One of the most famous horror stories of the almost 400-year-old University of Sto. Tomas is the one where students feel a tapping on their foreheads when using the ladies' restroom in the Main Building.

When they look up, they see the gently swinging feet of a female student who committed suicide in one of the cubicles, as the story goes. Also, a headless nun is said to roam the St. Martin de Porres building, formerly known as the Medicine Building. A UST student says a professor told them to leave the building by 6 p.m. There are also sightings of friars roaming the grounds and wailing voices heard.

Thousands of people died in the university, History Prof. Jose Victor Torres told The university was an internment camp in the 1940s; some prisoners died of hunger, some committed suicide while others were murdered.

"The University's buildings have so many secrets to tell," Torres said. "It has witnessed so many histories, causing people to make and think of their own tales. Some may be real, others may not."

7. University of the Philippines, Manila 

 Established in 1908 and battered by World War II, the University of the Philippines Manila has its fair share of ghostly sightings. In the College of Arts and Sciences, also called Rizal Hall, spirits are said to make their presence felt in the bathrooms and chemistry laboratory. A few meters away is the Gusaling Andres Bonifacio which houses what is believed to be the ghost of a janitor who committed suicide. On the first floor, there is said to be a 10- to 12-year-old child running. Meanwhile, the ghosts of nurses and interns are said to make their rounds in the Philippine General Hospital.

 8. City Hall, Manila 

When the clock strikes 6 p.m., you'd better leave Manila City Hall, according to employees. They hear strange noises, whispers and footsteps when night falls. Since it's the city hall of one of the most bombarded cities in the Philippines during World War II, they're not surprised that paranormal beings roam the halls.
A creepy fact: Manila City Hall is shaped like a coffin with a cross on it when viewed from the top.

9. Fort Santiago, Intramuros, Manila 

During World War II, hundreds of civilians and soldiers were tortured or killed in Fort Santiago, Intramuros. Thousands more died and the city turned to ashes when the Americans fought the Japanese in 1945. Soldiers' ghosts are said to patrol at night–apart from the actual guards dressed in old-fashioned soldier uniforms (tip: it's blue). Screams of the tortured and persecuted are said to echo throughout the walled city, as well, as soon as night falls.

10. Star Mall Alabang, Muntinlupa City

The gigantic screen usually commands your attention in movie theaters but at Star Mall Alabang, your seatmates steal the scene. As an old story goes, a couple watched in what seemed like a jam-packed theater, only to find out when the movie ended that they were the only ones inside. Star Mall, previously called Metropolis Star, stands on the former site of the Alabang Cemetery. Manuela Realty Development Corp., established by Sen. Manny Villar's grandmother-in-law Doña Manuela Aguilar Riguera, built the mall in the '90s.

Song of my Life

Tayong mga pinoy very emotional at mahilig makinig sa mga kanta kung depress tayo, in love or galit sa mundo. Pag inlove tayo we love to listen to love songs. Pag galit tayo sa mundo we listen to gothic heavy metal rock band. Pag nageemote tayo minsan gusto natin sabayan ng music, in short parang soundtrack ng buhay natin.

Isa sa pinakafavorite kung singer ay si Mariah Carey, kasi nakakarelate ako sa 2 songs niya.

1st song from Mariah Carey "Outside" from the Butterfly album


It's hard to explain
Inherently it's just always been strange
Neither here nor there
Always somewhat out of place everywhere
Without a sense of belonging to touch
Somewhere halfway
Feeling there's no one completely the same

Standing alone
Eager to just
Believe it's good enough to be what
You really are
But in your heart
Uncertainty forever lies
And you'll always be
Somewhere on the

Early on, you face
The realization you don't have a space
Where you fit in
And recognize you
Were born to exist


And it's hard
And it's hard
And it's hard

Falling in between
And it's hard
And it's hard
To be understood
As you are
As you are

Oh, and God knows
That you're standing on your own
Blind and unguided
Into a world divided
You're thrown

Where you're never quite the same
Although you try - try and try
To tell yourself
You really are

But in your heart - uncertainty forever lies
And you'll always be
Somewhere on the outside
You'll always be
Somewhere on the outside

When I first heard this song, I instantly connected to it. Because most of my life I've always felt different from everyone else. Even when I'm hanging with friends or family, Sometimes, I find myself drifting off into my own world. Kaya nga sabi nila may sarili akong mundo kung minsan.​

I love this song so much, because I can relate to what she's singing about, and it touches me so deep and no words can explain what I am feeling. Mariah is such an amazing songwriter. 


2nd song "Looking In" from the Daydream album


You look at me and see the girl
Who lives inside the golden world
But don't believe
That's all there is to see
You'll never know the real me

She smiles through a thousand tears
And harbors adolescent fears
She dreams of all
That she can never be
She wades in insecurity
And hides herself inside of me

Don't say she takes it all for granted
I'm well aware of all I have
Don't think that I am disenchanted
Please understand

It seems as though I've always been
Somebody outside looking in
Well here I am for all of them to bleed
But they can't take my heart from me
And they can't bring me to my knees
They'll never know the real me

I definitely can relate to this song because it expresses all I've ever felt.

This song is sad but powerful. And of course para makarelate I have to change she into he :)


I love these songs and have adopted it as my theme song. It makes me cry everytime I hear it but it helps me feel like im understood. And naisip ko di lang pala ako nagiisa sa mga naradaman ko, even Mariah felt what I felt.

Superman and Original Dvd's

I'm a Big Superman fan. It was my uncle who introduced me to Superman because he collects Superman comics when he was a kid. And  everytime I visit my grandma's house, I'll  borrow his comic books. 

I collect everything that has anything to do with Superman like action figures, dvd's, T-shirts etc. 

Here are some of my collections:

I have to  strongly disagree with this statement:

No duplicate can take the place of an original. Thus, it is always a wise decision to buy everything original. Even in the case of DVDs, original ones have always proved their worth. The Original may cost more than a duplicate, but the quality of the duplicate will never match the quality of an original one.

Because I  bought a Lois and Clark Season 4 dvd from the United States,  which costs me $48.99  and I was surprised that the dvd didn't even last for 3 years.  See pictures below

Look what happened sa original dvd disc nagkaroon ng  parang small circles at yung silver thing nawawala na siya GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

Masmatibay pa ang pirated kung mga dvd than this original dvd, na sa USA ko pa binili bwiseetttttttt.. And di na siya mabasa ng dvd player kasi sira na nga and dvd.

It's a good thing that I was able to download season 4 sa internet.

I learned that kahit original dvd  ay di gurantee  na mahusay ang quality niya.
