View At My Window : Magellan’s Landing

View At My Window (Post#29) : Magellan’s Landing

Ferdinand Magellan is not a stranger to me since he is always included in the history subject related to the discovery of my country since Spanish Colonization time, which the same fate happened to Guam not really far from Philippines. When we visited another fort at the southern part of Guam, we passed and appreciated from a distance what Guam call it as Magellan’s Landing. The shore is the one that has been considered as where Magellan landed in the island. The photo is part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.

Enriching Viewpoint (Post#1) : General Douglas MacArthur Room

When I did the two days visit in Brisbane during Open House season in the city last October 2013, there was a museum that I never expected that it will be familiar to me. Yes I went to MacArthur Museum but I never thought that the name of MacArthur will be the same person that I was familiar back to my country’s history. During rudimentary and intermediate school, I learned about the notable quote that American General made during Japanese invasion and I am referring to General MacArthur whom announced to the Filipino and Allied forces “I came through and I shall return” during his great escape from Philippines as Japanese forces able to control the country during that time. Since I learned the history quite a long time ago, I was reminded or probably learned that MacArthur went to Australia after leaving Philippines to think again how to retaliate the enemy which made him able to come back to my country and able conquer Japanese forces.
