Wala na yung mga informal settlers at Mosque dun sa Boulevard 2000 na harap ng Baclaran Church. May nilagay silang karatula na may render ng kung ano mang itatayo dun. Pero hindi ko pa nakikita ng malapitan.

Good news to Paranaque and other neighboring communities..


Although I do not like employment coming from gambling activities like casinos anyway, I still find this as good news to ease unemployment in the country

As the country puts its best foot forward for the holding of a world event next week, workers do their bit and polish the bronze statue of Limahong (left), a dreaded Chinese pirate, and local hero Don Galo in Las Pinas, Paranaque City on Saturday. Don Galo was an intrepid native who led defenders of his community against attacks by the Chinese marauders in 1574. DANNY PATA

Not sure if this is real but the legend is well-known here. And it could apply to our current situation as well.

Quote:
It was November 29, 1574. The inhabitants of the town of Parañaque, a royal encomienda, was under heavy attack from the forces of this notorious Chinese corsair, who were on their way to Intramuros, the seat of Spanish rule in the Philippines. Folk accounts have it that the inhabitants were at first disorganized, until a man from a barrio, by the name of Galo, came forward and took command. Under his able leadership, and with the arrival of Spanish forces led by Captain Juan de Salcedo from Ilocos, Limahong was repulsed and the occupation of the town was prevented.

The stiff resistance of the barrio residents shocked the Chinese pirate, who thought that capturing Manila would be easy. What Limahong did not expect was that the defenders of the community, that would later be known as Don Galo, despite being ill-equipped, would fight to the end, so much so that the sea in front of the barrio turned red with their blood.

The battle became known as the "Red Sea Incident".

The Parañaqueños not only saved their town, but they contributed decisively to Limahong's abandoning his plans to conquer the area. In appreciation for Galo's leadership and heroic deeds, the Spanish authorities granted him the title of "Don". The barrio later on was named after him. Thus, Don Galo or Dongalo
