Before the event started, we had the chance to explore the beauty of Baler during the day. We went to Baler’s National Museum where we saw some century old chinese porcelain discovered in a ship wreck in different beaches in the Philippines. Also, the museum featured the Filipino- Spanish era and the native tribes in Baler.
