MACARTHUR LANDING MEMORIAL PARK

Ever been to the famous MacArthur Landing Memorial Park in Leyte?
Yes, I've been. But...
Honestly, i can't remember much of things in my History class about Mc Arthur, and at what grade or year in my prime education Mc arthur was thoroughly discussed. I am probably absent during the discussion. LOL, and all i can remember about Mc Arthur is his famous line of  "I SHALL RETURN", and honestly again, i don't even know what makes him famous in our land. Pardon me, but i might be sent back to elementary because of this. Might as well, i need an historian to relate to me the Philippine History and relive any recollection  that was left in my cerebrum.

nonetheless, i am happy to see one of Leyte's famous Landmark like the MACARTHUR LANDING MEMORIAL PARK located at Red beach, Palo, Leyte.

an eye to eye with Douglas :)

and finally, at peace

and for posterity's sake, i made a trek at the wikipilipinas on the significance of the Memorial park and learned that Japanese tyranny has ended soon after Mac Arthur landed at the Red Beach on October 20, 1944, and that the statue was built to commemorate the historic return of Douglas MacArthur to Philippine Shores.

    2. Haha! Sorry naman at na surprise quiz pa tuloy kita. Lalo naman ata akong walang alam sa history kasi panahon na ni FVR ata nung nagpunta kami ng Leyte hindi man lamang namin inexplore yang landmark na yan. Toinks.

      Salamat sa suporta sa Happiness Is :) Balik ka ulit pag di ka busy ha? Hugs!

  2. Same here, absent din ata ako sa maraming lessons sa history, halos wala na rin ako matandaan sa history eh...hehe! Anyways, I've been to Leyte many many years back (work-related visit), sad to say, I've never been to any historical or tourist attractions of the province, kakalungkot. Sana mapuntahan ko ulit ang Leyte.

  6. You've been to Tacloban na pala. I hope my fellow Warays had given you a warm welcome :)

    Sana dumiretso ka na sa Biri, in Northern Samar. We have magnificent rock formations here ;) You can google about it. I hope someday you'll find yourself visiting the Biri rock formations. I'm sure, you'll love the experience.

    ahhh, meron palang ganun, very short and business trip kasi ang punta ko ng Tacloban na yan, at sumaglit lang kami sa mga malapit na landmark.
    it's great to be there, sana nga next time ma explore ko pa ang ibang tourist spot ng lugar:)

  13. Nice snaps! I am proud to say that "I have been here!!!" Kaso lang, back then, I didn't have a digital camera yet. I had a filmed camera and I do have some snaps in this place, too, but when Sendong flooded our home in CDO, I am told that all of my albums got washed out. I am so sad I could cry thinking about it :(

    Anyway, thanks for joining last week's TT sis! Please join again; linky for this week is now up! :)
