The town of Sagbayan in Bohol may not have the old heritage churches, but it is has one great asset it can flaunt about–Chocolate Hills is also within her territory. The natural wonders have been formed by earth’s movements over time–from the sea, to where it is now. It was also believed it was the giant’s mudslinging that created these hills that looks like gigantic chocolate chips. Whatever its origins, it is one great proof of Mother Nature’s raw power in terraforming.
And on 15 of October 2013, the residents of Sagbayan was able to witness and experience her power. A 7.2 magnitude earthquake rocked the town down to its knees. Five days later, we saw how this town struggled itself in the first few days after the tremor.
