"I'm Proud to be Moronguena!" Morong by Kisses&Co

Morong Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 60 photos


I'm proud to be Moronguena! I'm proud to have a unique Tagalog accent which my friends, especially those who are from Manila sometimes they making fun of it! I grew up in one of 8 barangays of Morong, which is San Guillermo. By the way, Morong is one of the municipality in the province of Rizal, Philippines. It is about 2-3 hours drive from Manila. San Guillermo is a farming community and the other sources of income of people here are garment industry, poultry and piggery. I must say that Morong is one of the peaceful town in Rizal. We have a very simple life here unlike in a stressful life in the city. Night life is not in our vocabulary. I swear! Trust ME! As early of 10:00pm, there's no young people hanging on the street. During evening, most households are in their living room watching their favorite prime time telenovelas. Some eldest, such as our grandparents, are already in bed by 7:00pm too. San Guillermo is a typical barangay in a rural province, very quiet at night and you can only hear the sounds of singing crickets "CHIRPING, CHIRPING" and frogs "KOKAK, KOKAK" [ it's a filipino frog, that's why it is not "RIBBIT, RIBBIT"] ;o) They are very noisy frogs. They love to sing in the ponds during rainy season as they were doing a vocalize lesson in a karaoke bar. Before the sun shines, you will be awaken of chicken's sound "TIK-TI-LAOK". It is our alarm clock. Ohh, well, I used to it and am loving my exceptional lifestyle in my hometown! PRECIOUS GOODNESS! Thanks to modern techonology! We have a Cable TV and internet connection now tho! *wink* One thing more, I have a short story to tell, I just remembered, I was about to cook "Chicken Tinola" for our lunch [sort of chicken soup flavored with ginger, green papaya and fresh chili leaves] and I have found out I have no ingredients for it and our market is very far from our home. I went to my neighbor and asked a favor if they can give me a green papaya & chili leaves which was directly from their garden. They refused to get the money as my payment for the vegetables. What I did was, I gave them Tinola for their lunch. The spirit of giving is truly in Moronguenoes' heart. We are willing to help one another to the best that we can and even in our simple ways. YES, I'm proud to be Moronguena! :-)

These are my little darlings, the adorable little boy is my dear nephew. He is half Filipino and half Palestinian. I found them sooo cute while jumping and taking this pic. Every Saturday or Sunday morning, my kids and I always go to this greenery and relaxing field to breath fresh air and catch the morning sun shines. My kiddies are very happy when they see the carabaos, cows, dragonflies and other animals here.

The two young people crossing the hanging bridge, confidently. These boy and girl made me think and I found them so brave while they were passing on this bridge while arms around each others shoulder. Sometimes, that's what our life is! Humans are not meant to be alone, and there will come a time in your life that you will be longing for someone to listen to you.....to sit beside you...... tap on your shoulder.... and hug you... and say "all things will be alright and I'm not leaving you even in the most difficult times of your life." :-)

    Very pretty picture of the rice seedlings. It sounds like a very peaceful place, and happy, and unpolluted. Hopefully it will always remain that way.
