Pangasinan Bloggers’ Tour Day 1 – Exploring Dagupan, Calasiao and Lingayen

I was born and raised in Dagupan City. I started out blogging when I was in high school but i started blogging publicly in college (through my .i.ph blog). As a student, i kept on blogging about my whereabouts including my dream of working in Manila. I wanted to pursue a careeer in IT way back, and going to Manila is the only solution that i saw. Although I’ve been working in Manila since 2008, i can say that nothing compares to the place you call home <3

Proud to be Dagupeño: Promoting Dagupan City’s Party Scene

Juxtapose and Bangus Ink, two newly-formed groups in Dagupan City recently organized an event called ‘Proud to be Dagupeno’. It is basically a rave party and outdoor photoshoot event. The organizers composed of young and talented Dagupenos aim to promote our city’s tourism by launching cool events such as this one.

I am also curious to see if they can surpass such challenge (majority of the group members are younger than me). Together with a fellow Pangasinan blogger Josh Uy, I went to Venu Bar that Saturday night to witness this event.

Spending the First Weekend of July in Dagupan City

After spending two days and one night in Baguio City, I went straight to Dagupan City via Victory Liner for a short visit at our new house there. To those who don’t really have an idea where I lived from 1994 to 2008, I actually lived inside the school campus. Yes, it is in the same campus where I studied for elementary, high school and college.

The New Home

From Penthouse to Big House

Early this year, my grandparents moved to another house near the school campus. Though my grandfather already retired from his job as a Medical Director in Pangasinan Medical Center, he is still an active Dean at the College of Medicine of Lyceum Northwestern-University. My lola is having a hard time climbing up the stairs (we used to stay at the 3rd floor of the Administration Bldg), they’ve decided to stay at the other house.

This house is big! I arrived late Thursday night and I was surprised upon seeing a big dog, who acts as the guard in the new home compound. The dog’s name is German and I am scared of dogs. I end up holding my father’s hands like a little girl whenever I go in and out of the compound 😛
