hm... I reckon we should have regional subsections. At least MM, Luzon Visayas and Mindanao.

here's something of to start with, Lubao Pampanga, hometown of a couple of people I know, and Diosdado Macapagal. We even visited his "house", bahay kubo actually. I'll upload the pics.

perhaps Ilocos and Cagayan Valley should have their owns threads, it's a big of a region for one thread isn't it?

two of my favorite places in the Phils to visit: LAOAG CITY & BATANES...

Laoag's colonial architecture...

Pati ang province ni Tina Turner, Batanes... I like the stone houses... pati ang land and sea scape...

POST kayo pics ng Batanes & Laoag.

Sorry Originally this was going to be a thread only for Region I but then I added the other regions of Northern Luzon because I thought this thread would be dead once I posted it since I seem to be the only one from that region (that I know of).

gives me an idea for a thread in samahan

i guess it can stay the way it is..

does Cagayan Valley have like a local dialect? I always wondered what was on the north-eastern part of Luzon.. which I thought always was lonely lands, locked by the Sierra Madre.

they also speak ilocano, though i noticed they pronounce words/letters softer than we do in the west. a good example would be the letter E. for us in the west, the letter E sounds more like the inverted E symbol, or how it would sound in words like "lettEr", "bettEr", etc. while for them in the northeast, E would sound like the regular E, like in words "bEd", "mEdicine", etc. i had classmates in SLU before who came from Cagayan and Isabela, at least that was how they spoke. i guess we could ask Francis, isn't he from Isabela?

FYI: other dialects spoken in Pangasinan apart from Ilocano are Pangasinense and Bolinao. Bolinao is exclusively spoken in the town of Bolinao (near the city of Alaminos where the Hundred Islands are), and I haven't heard anyone speak it yet so i don't know how it sounds.

^ I can't fully understand Tagalog, but I know what you guys are talking about....when I was in RP in '97 my cousin told me the Ilocano word for thank you but the only thing I can remember now is that it began with a "dy" sound.
