Mt. Makiling Everyday #3 (the legend of maria makiling 2)

Another story is about three suitors who intensely battled for the heart of Makiling. One was a Spanish soldier, another, a Spanish-Filipino mestizo and the third, a Filipino farmer named Juan. In the end the Filipino won the heart of Maria Makiling which angered the two other suitors. They have plotted to kill him through a fire that broke down on the garrison, which they blamed against Filipinos including Juan. They shot Juan as punishment and before dying he shouted the name of Maria. Maria went down in the mountain and cursed the two as well as the other men who cannot accept failure in love then she went back in the mountains never to be seen again. The Spanish soldier died during the revolution while the mestizo died of illness. When somebody gets lost in the mountains, people attribute it to the curse on Makiling.

  1. Hey there,

    First and foremost, I happened to chance upon your blog via the Nuffnang Ad Exchange program and I realised that your blog is truly awesome!

    Hence, if you don't mind, I will like to propose a really beneficial deal which goes like this,

    I will visit your blog whenever I see an advertisement on my own blog and then I will click on the advertisement if there happens to be one on your blog.

    You might be thinking, “How am I sure that this guy is going to click on the advertisements for me?” Well, simple, nuffnang has this program called Community *NEW* which is right below the Analytics under Referrals. You can go check it out frequently to make sure that I have visited your blog promptly.

    Then you might be thinking, “So what? He can visit my blog but it still does not prove that he has been clicking on the advertisements.”

    Yes, I totally understand where you guys are coming from. But, rest assured I will not be so selfish that I visit your blog merely to save myself in your list. Clicking on the advertisements takes me less than 2 seconds and I do not suffer any loss at all by doing that. So, I swear to you, mark my words that I will click on your ads consistently throughout the month. As far as possible, I will do my best to visit your blog at least twice a week!

    Let's say I click on your ad once a week, you will a minimum of an additional 80cents per month. But if I click on it on other computers whenever the chance arises, you will definitely earn more than that!

    By the way, my own personal blog is at bizybay.blogspot.com

    So, what do you say? Would you like to collaborate with me on this project as well whereby we visit each other's blog and click on the ad for each other whenever we see the opportunity?

    It will be great if you can follow me on my blog!!! That will make it easier for you too.

    P.S. Do let you friends know about the blog if you like it! Thanks a gazillion! Appreciate it deeply from my heart!!!
