    Beachfront Spot in Bani

    My favorite spot to get some or most of the sun? I can only think of one place, to go up North and head to our family's ancestral house in Bani, Pangasinan. Surip is located at the westernmost part of the municipality along the South China Sea. As stated in their website, Surip is ideal for scuba diving, snorkeling, and recreational fishing. Different species of tropical fishes and lobsters abound this area.

    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.
