  1. When I was a child (very long ago), one could see mounds of WWII surplus materials for sale under massive tents set up on the right side of the church. Every boy scout that I knew got his lunch canister or water canteen from those markets. Thanks to the folks who set up this site for letting fast-disappearing memories survive.

    Apropos of nothing, I still have a copy of “The Best of Lib Abrena: A Memorial Edition,” published by my father’s company, Bardavon Books, in 1950. Abrena was a cartoonist for the Sunday Times Magazine, from 1946 to 1949. I wonder if anyone remembers him….

  2. Hi!

    Napakalaking tulong ng site po ninyo sa aming mga researchers at producers!

    Nabasa kasi ng intern ko yung feature po ninyo about Dolljoy. Kakatapos lang po namin mag-shoot doon.

    Sana po ay marami pa po kayong ma-feature na lugar.

    Maraming salamat po!

    • Salamat din William for visiting our site. we’re glad that we are able to help. -Glenn

  3. I love my Manila…The place I born…The place I will die…I love so much our Spanish heritage.

  4. Hi,

    Your site has been a VERY VERY BIG HELP to my thesis. Just wondering what happened to the Anting-anting and Herbs and Folk Remedies area. I badly need it for my thesis since I am covering the folklore culture in Quiapo.

    Thank you very much

    • There is book called the Heart of Quiapo authored by Dr. Fernando Zialcita. It has alot of information about Quiapo’s folk culture.
