The Philippines has its own share of wonders similar to the famous Atlantis or El Dorado. Among many mysterious and enchanting places, the lost city of Biringan evokes the most awe and intrigue. Stories about this hidden city are particularly popular among the residents of Samar who believe that Biringan is more than just a legend.
Biringan is said to be a place of the engkantos (enchanted ones) in the humble area of Northern Samar in the Philippines. According to the beliefs, Biringan City is a highly advanced metropolitan filled with high-rise architecture and out-of-this-world structures, which are unusual to exist in such a rural area like Samar. Its beauty and grandeur are said to lure humans to come into their realm and stay there forever.

My family is renting two apartments in Mandaluyong City. The apartments are just beside each other. What we did is put a passage at the back so we can go through our second apartment.
Anyway, I was with my two children and my parents. We had a relative, she's about 50 years old I think, taking care of my younger child who was about two months old.
Each apartment had two bedrooms, and the room of my younger sister is at the second apartment. On that day, there's no one in the second apartment since my sister went out for party. It was past midnight when my relative decided to go to the first apartment with my baby.
