A part of my Childhood

I spent a few years of my childhood in Balangiga, being the hometown of my father. The place is totally laid back, home of fisherman's, which always reminds me of big Blue Merlin fishes carried away from pumboats to the shore and direct to the small market, this is typically during the season.**

*My Excuses!!

This page remain under construction, need the most motivation for continuation. For the meantime, I have provided some tips and photos below for any convenient use.
Thanks for passing by:

    Gosh free sand... I hope they don't run out:-) I always find the Filipino people wonderfully warm and friendly - they know how to have fun. What a shame about the pollution.

    The Seafood must be very fresh here! I've always wanted to go to a Banca building factory!! Balangiga sure looks like my kind of place!

    The 2 things I covet most in life are a banca and a jeepney. I've now found out where I can get a banca made. Just need to work on the jeepney now ...
