Balete Drive is a street located in New Manila, Quezon City known for apparitions of a white lady and haunted houses which were built during the Spanish Era (1800s). New Manila has an abundance of balete trees, which, according to legend, is a time honored favorite resting spot of wandering spirits and other otherworldly paranormal beings. Many believe Aswangs and their evil spooky paranormal pets live in these haunted trees, roosting and waiting for their next victim to draw near.
Paranormal experts believe that the white lady multo (ghost) was a poor woman who was brutally raped by Japanese soldiers during the Second World War, her corpse many say was not buried properly it was thrown on the side of the road and stayed there for many years, only to be carried away by birds, rats and other creatures over time piece by piece. Some of her hair and bones are still perched high in branches as part of their nests or buried in rat holes in the ground under the trees and the street street. And this tale which is supposedly told by locals as 100% truth differs from the movie version. Her skull many say or her face which was cut away by a machete or bayonet blade was taken as his personal souvenir. Many believe she searches for the man or his descendents to exact her evil revenge upon them. Or as many believe today upon those that mock her existence.
