In case you missed this episode from GMA News TV 11’s Reel Time, Ang Langyaw was invited as a guest in this ghost story episode, Ang Misteryo sa Parola ng Malabrigo (The Mystery in Malabrigo’s Lighthouse). Malabrigo Lighthouse in Lobo, Batangas is a Spanish era built structure, now repainted and beautified but people from the area speak of roaming spirits, especially of a woman in white.

Together with Baguio’s Dion Fernandez who has his spirit box, we checked for ourselves what this lighthosue has. I’m the unbeliever who photographed around the lighthouse area in the hope of capturing spirits. However, based on what I photographed, none were found.

Dion on the other hand was able to talk with “voices” from the other side. I’m not really a believer, although I find stories like these entertaining, hearing the voices actually speak words in Tagalog like tubig (water), bangin (cliff), labi ko (my remains), apat (four, when asked who many they are below the cliff) spooked me so much, sending chills along my spine!

I really haven’t watched the episode last Sunday as I was trekking in the hinterlands of Tubo, Abra, I do am hoping to watch the full episode via YouTube. Soon.
