Candating arayat pampanga
In January 2006, to honor my roots, I published a twin book about Pampanga and my hometown, Mabalacat.It was a project that took all of 4 years, as I had practically become a stranger in my own province, living a peripatetic life in Manila and abroad.
The response to my humble work was overwhelming; the book is now out of print.Hopefully, with this blog, everyone can take in the views of old Pampanga again, from an era now forever gone but never forgotten. Saniculas cookies made with the imprint of San Nicolas de Tolentino, the miracle healer.Pampanga is a province located in the Central Luzon region of the Philippines known for its cuisine. It is host the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (the 2nd gateway to the country). And don't fail to miss the yearly, Hot Air Ballon Festival. Joseph the Worker Parish in Floridablanca, The Fontana Waterpark, Bayanihan Park, Bale Matua and Santo Rosario Church.
Travelers who passed the river's way brought home stories of a land with a majestic mountain jutting from its navel, a place of scenic wonders, boundless resources and magnificent townscapes, peopled by a proud brown race.
What other magical views could our forefathers have seen from this river's fabled "pampang"?
