  • Manaoag Church

    Manaoag Church
    The town of Manaoag Pangasinan was named after a legend of a man who was walking along a field and heard a sweet voice calling. When he trailed the voice, he saw an image of a woman with a rosary in one hand and a child in her arms standing on a branch of a tall tree. After the apparition, the tree was taken down and carved into the image of the Virgin Mary. Thus the name, "Manaoag" which is "man" meaning "to" prefixed to "taoag" meaning "to call" is given to the place where the apparition of Mary occurred. Some versions of the story say that it was lightning that struck the tree down but it left an imprint of Mary’s face on it.

    Next from my hometown is a wonderful little place called Sta. Barbara. This town is dotted with some heritage and scenic landmarks not only for the city of Iloilo but to the whole country. History of the Municipality of Santa Barbara covers four centuries that as early as 1617, the missionaries attended to the spiritual ministration of a community or "pueblo" then known as Catmon. The name was derived from a fruit –bearing tree, which served as an imposing landmark in the vicinity.

  • Ma's Restaurant

    Ma's Restaurant
    Hear the name "Ma's" and you might conjure up the image of an old, large, greasy woman flipping pancakes and grumpily asking what you'd like to order, according to my boss; apparently the name didn't entice many customers in the early years. But prejudices finally subsided and people were pleased to discover that Ma's was actually a locally owned Chinese/Thai restaurant found right in the heart of downtown Central Point, and has now not only been thriving for the past 10+ years, but has been my place of employment for the last 3 of them.

    Holga in Newport Beach, CA
    It amazes me now, in retrospect, that I spent seventeen years of adolescence waiting for the day when I could leave my hometown of Newport Beach, California.

Sea, sand, surf and surfers: Newport Beach is truly a place unlike any other.

    What I love about Cebu is that every time I come home, the place has always something new to offer: a new mall, new restaurant, new hangout, new beach hideaway, and new friends.
