Together with Walter and Sue, we went to see the Filipino-Japanese Amity Memorial Shrine. Located in the hilltop of Valencia, Negros Oriental, the shrine marks the place where both Filipino and American soldiers especially the Negrosanon guerilla units (people in Negros Oriental) fought against the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II.
The tall white pillar (obelisk) with a solid base serves as a commemorative shrine for those who have died during the war. Not only it serves as a holy place to remember those brave soldiers, but it's also one of the attraction in the province.
Let me show you around. It was a wonderful afternoon uphill drive that lasted almost an hour. I was with my own motorcycle, and Sue was with Walter. It was my second time to visit the place, but for my two friends, it was a beautiful first time. The weather cooperated with its cool and pleasant air.
