Viewfinder: The Sunken Cemetery

Under Camiguin sky and right under that erected cross marker is a not-so-happy story. In fact, some people think of it as creepy.

Camiguin island in Mindanao, Philippines had experienced major volcanic eruptions in the years 1827, 1862, 1871 and in 1948. And It was during the 1871 eruption of Mt. Vulcan that the old capital of Camiguin along with many of its residents met their tragic end. The area including its old cemetery also sunk as a result of the eruption. The 1948 eruption reportedly sunk the area even deeper. And so the cross marker we now see, built in 1982 is a reminder of where the community cemetery was once located.

As I stood in the area surrounding the cross maker that hot day in December (you can sail to the marker from the seashore), I kept thinking how quiet, how serene the place was when story upon story had been buried beneath the waves of the sea.

Note: I took the above photo during our family trip in Camiguin. You can read more about our Camiguin trip hereThis is also my entry to Skywatch Friday. You can find some cool sky photos there 🙂

Dream Purchases for the Year

Some things we buy because they are essential in our daily work, our daily life. There are also things we already have but we want to “upgrade” it or buy a newer version as it is no longer as functional as a new one.

Here are some of my own dream purchases for the year:

Laptop. The laptop I am using now seems to be begging for replacement — for some days that is. Some days, it seems to be just fine. Just the same, I need to keep in mind that in a year or two, I would need to get a new one.

Guitar.  Several years back, I decided to donate my acoustic guitar to a church outreach. I have not been using it anyway for a time and I have not thought of playing it, using it again. But beginning last year, this feeling seems to be creeping on me — I miss playing the guitar. And so I guess it means, I might have to eventually get one. There are some cool guitars available online, including this one at http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/epiphone-limited-edition-es-335-pro-electric-guitar. It’s great to see guitars available for purchase online.

Fully Automatic Washing Machine. This one, my hubby and I are trying to save for as we want to pay in cash in purchasing it. This has been on our list of things to purchase at home but it hasn’t really been a priority so it stays comfortably settled on the list 🙂

What about you? What are your dream purchases of the year? What’s the most immediate one on your list?
