While on my vacation, my fellow treasure hunters in the Philippines contacted me about an interesting discovery which is a unique and antique “Wooden Lucky Travelling Buddha”. Of course, they don’t know anything about the Buddha until I told them that it was a lucky Buddha used by most Feng Shui experts to attract positive chi energy. For those who knows nothing about Feng Shui, this Buddha is known to bring “good blessings”.

The wooden Buddha was discovered by a certain individual who claimed that he mysteriously dreamed about it. A spirit contacted him through his dream telling about the hidden Buddha and its location which is at a certain hidden cave. So he went into the location and dug the spot according to his dream.

Throughout history, Philippine coins had undergone a lot of changes. As a result, they have varied designs produced at different period of time or era. Old coins are also much easier to find as compared to the old paper-money because they tend to last much longer especially when properly cared.

Filipino treasures and antiques are ancient relics that belonged to the early Filipino people. Philippine archaeologists consider these items as “Philippine National Treasures” because they hold valuable pieces of information about the early culture of their ancestors.

Is the “Yamashita Treasure” considered PNT (Philippine National Treasures)?

The Yamashita Treasure actually consists of “war loots” plundered by the JIA (Japanese Imperial Army) mostly from different Asian countries back in WW2 (World War II). Since most of them do not originally belong in the Philippines, they are “not considered as PNT”. The same case goes to the “Spanish/Spaniards hidden treasures” in the country.
