|A year ago, town officials of Gasan trooped to this estuary near the boundary of Boac-Gasan to check reports about the presence of heavy equipment there in relation to some treasure hunting. Denials followed from here and there, some quarters coming up with what seems to be absurd claims that the heavy equipment were there for 'some improvements' on the site such as planting peanuts that needed tight guarding.|
Today, this is what we find there. The much talked about 'lamesang bato' ('lamesang ginto' is another variation) has surfaced. After reportedly securing the area including the narrow estuary with fences, one of the mystery objects has been dug up months ago and dragged towards the riverbank by whom and by how many, we don't know; turned upside down to see what's under and what's on that site... and was abandoned. We wouldn't know the complete straightforward story, maybe.
"NAGMALIW" (vanished) is what we hear in whispers as far as the treasures (that were supposed to be there), are concerned. But, listen, use of that almost archaic word, 'nagmaliw', now really means something vanishing into thin air. We are probably dealing with a different world here, remember? The realm of fairy tales and magic, you know...
|A closer look reveals that the rock object is hollow inside. Was there anything there when found or was there simply nothing, nothing but air bubbles?|
