About Sagunto Star

The Sagunto Star is a revival of the first ever newsletter in Sagunto, Sison Pangasinan. The original printed version was published by its original editor, Mr. Bernardo Castillo and was distributed locally.

This new form holds the same purpose of re-connecting Saguntonians and friends from Sison, Pangasinan with each other for news, fostering cooperation and progress for our Barangay and the town. This is where we also reminisce about this little town tucked at the foot of a mountain that is actually a hill, where all the bagos roam. Have fun looking at the photos and listening to the stories. Email us if you’d like to comment or contribute (SaguntoStar@gmail.com).

QUOTE FROM BERNARDO CASTILLO, CREATOR OF THE ORIGINAL SAGUNTO STAR:

Our Sagunto is a breathing, living community. Name it and Sagunto has it. We want our barrio folks to feel proud and loyal to our community and the outsider friends to know that Sagunto is, for us her sons and daughters, the one and only of its kind, worthy of nothing less than our love and lasting affection.

If you would like to contribute a photo, story, or announcement to this blog, please email SaguntoStar@gmail.com. We’d love to hear from you!

    Hellow!!! Alma, it’s been such a long time since we last saw each other, but I do have fond memories playing with you in Sagunto. Remember how we use to play either in lola’s backyard or at your house? You were always the teacher and we were your students. hehe! Those were such good times. I even remember how you used to send us home with our report cards. šŸ˜€

    Sagunto is an active little town and could use all the help it can get. We can all help in our own ways and we are so glad to have you and your sisters on board. Email me news of where you are now and your family so we can post it here too. Send it to: saguntophotos@gmail.com
    Look forward to hearing from you!

    adda met laeng naawatam dita? ket uray syak, dyak naawatan insurat ko, makaamod tan. baka agkatkatawan alberto. mayat met no adda pagpraktisan. hihihi.

    hey, alberto, what a wonderful place you have there..and sagunto is really a very historical place! can’t believe there’s a roman theatre there and a castle, and the view from the mountain was breathtaking as well. no wonder our place was called “sagunto” by that spanish soldier. our place, sagunto in philippines reminded him of his hometown, sagunto, in spain. how we wish to visit sister village sagunto in spain one day…

    evs, school classes are suspended in japan today due to this 18th typhoon passing by our central plain area. we went to the city, but train lines were also suspended due to the strong winds. last year, there were some trains that were blown by the winds out of their tracks and plunged into houses. they are now so careful these days. the typhoon is eakening, so probably, classes resume tomorrow.

    i meant, they are so careful these days…imagine, with my 10 yrs of stay in japan, it’s the first time they are cancelling classes. i remember when joji was young, and the winds were strong. i didn’t allow joji to go to school. know what? the vice principal came over to fetch my son when i complained that it’s so dangerous for kids to go out…very strange policy…well, typhoon weakening now….back to school tomorrow.
