the philippines is believed to have the most hidden treasure as historians wrote about the treasure specially gold bars and gold coins left by retreating japanese forces during world war 2, according to an american writer back in 1989 when i was in college the amount of gold acquired by the marcoses during the time of Pres. Marcos is estimated to be more than 3 trillion dollars worth of gold and precious stones and war memorabillias found on several sites in the philippines..today there is no claimed that the yamashita treasure was already found and of the several sis by six trucks and kennedy jitney that was loaded with these treasures..according to some rumors these trucks loaded with gold treasures are bound to pangasinan and isabela through some diversionary routes and vanished without a trace along the way...some of the old natives near our place hold some stories about some of these trucks to have been buried on some of the ridges of the mountains not far from our place, according to these old aborigines some of these trucks are found tracking the rocky road of their place and vanished along the way, old aborigines told that they were put inside a secret hidden tunnel in one of the mountains and blew the entrance and they said that up to this point of time these treasures are left untouched and not yet found...with so many people in our place who became rich and left our place secretly many conclude that they have found treasures somewhere in some of the fields they are tilling in some of the places believed to be occupied by the japanese forces during their retreat...how about do you have some stories about treasures or have you experienced treasure hunting? actually i'll be posting some of the pictures insides some of the tunnels believed to be occupied by the japanese forces in the mountains near our place soon...its quite a risky one and somehow very dangerous and i am quite afraid to enter but hopefully i can do it...

No I haven't experienced treasure hunting. But I would really want to experience it. I love adventures. But I think I would be easily get scared whenever I am in the real situation. I know there are ghost that protects the treasure and I am very much afraid of ghost. When I was a kid I always play with my neighbor treasure hunting. We will make a treasure map and we will make something like a torch. Then at night we would build a small fire imagining that we are in the middle of the forest. Sometimes we play treasure hunting, someone will hide the coin and we should find it. That's the only treasure hunting I only experienced.

thats quite cool also but real treasure hunting is very very dangerous, theres so many obstacles along the way and finding the treasure is the very difficult task even youre in the place already, actually some believe that spirits haunt this treasure, actually i have a friend who have a house near the the known place believe somehow occupied by the japanese army...he share with me some bizarre things about his house before..he told me that once it rain he notice the rain water is not flowing anywhere but it goes right to a hole beside the front window, and this puzzled him what the hole is doing there,,later on, a coconut fruit drops exactly at the point and he wonder that the coconut began to be sank inside also as the mouth of the hole was enlarge,,he later found out from the locals that a tunnel is somewhere in the place no one knows the exact point...so he made some digging right below the santol tree where the hole was found which absorbed the water ...later that night when he sleep unfinished with the digging he dreamed of a evil spirit warning him not to dig further and enter a sealed door of the place he is digging or he will kill him...my friend afraid of his dream sealed the pit he is digging and never known what is down there because of his dream, but it left to him the question what is really inside that hole he is digging...
