               Roxas City 2013

Roxas, officially the City of Roxas or Roxas City, is a medium-sized city in the province of CapizPhilippines. It is considered as one of Panay Island‘s center of education, trade, economic activity and logistics. Once known as the Municipality of Capiz, the origin of the present name of the province, was renamed into Roxas City in honor of native Manuel Roxas, the First President of the Philippine Third Republic, after it became a chartered city on May 12, 1951.  —Source

For every Filipinos, Roxas City is known for its commendable aquaculture industry. Thus, the above-mentioned title.  For me and the rest of the family, it is dad’s hometown and birthplace. I still have my lola (grandma), tito (uncle), tita (auntie) and cousins. Visiting every once in a while is a must. I came for a short visit before coming here in California. I won’t be seeing my lola for quite sometime, so I went for it.
I stayed at her house in Dayao.

This is the backyard. That’s my uncle’s former house. It’s cool, because he lived in a bahay kubo.

Usually our routine will be go and hang-out at the beach. But, this time I specifically asked to have some pictures taken around town. Request granted!

Dad went to this school for a while. While rummaging things in their ancestral house, I found his report card.

We were with Fr. Ted Castro. He’s my ninong and officiated my baptism. He’s currently experiencing diabetes complications. I wished him well.

Met some relatives right outside the church.

I’ve always been curious about this place. It has an odd shape from the outside. Turns out, it was a former water reservoir. Converted into a museum in 1993. Under the management of One Capiz, re-opened the museum in 2012.

Ms. Che is the Museum Director. She accommodated and answered a lot of my questions. A pretty lady as well.
