    1. Memory Robinson

      I used to live in Sagunto from 1956 to 1966. Attended Northern Luzon Academy grades 1 to 3, afterwhich, I moved to Hawaii
      at the age of 8 (1966). For many years, I continue to dream
      about Sagunto, the places I used to roam, the rivers, the hills.
      Our family there is Gertrudes Biteng and my brother is Henry
      Sunang. Both still reside in Sagunto. I truly value this site–a
      place I can connect with my childhood days. Thank you.

      i might not have seen you, miss memory, because we went back to sagunto around 1969 to study in the elem. if you are now in hawaii, have you by chance lived around kahuku? when i visited my aunt there, she told me that there’s somebody in their neighborhood originally from sagunto; had a handsome son…and i wasn’t able to catch that woman on my walk one day as she was shopping…she could be you or somebody you know from sagunto too? i learned that there are so many people from labayog who migrated in kahuku area. please log in often and share us your memories of your childhood.

      I don’t even know how to begin. I contacted a childhood friend (Vilma Capuyan Rodriguez) the other day and told me about this site. We reminisced about the good old days, growing up in Sagunto. I lived in Sagunto from 1969 – 1972, when dad was the pastor of the Wesleyan Church, until we moved to the United States. There were many good memories of growing up there….the nuwang horse races in the rice fields, harvesting rice, swimming and washing clothes at the river and gathering firewood in the bantay. I still call Sagunto my hometown. For the first time, five years ago, my husband and I had the opportunity to visit Sagunto. Certainly many improvements have been made but I still felt the small town atmosphere. The rice field still exists, Artacho Elem. School is still the same and the classroom chairs that I sat on were still there. Luckily during my visit, I was able to see a few of my old barkadas. (Vilma, Carlito, Mina Lane) As I read some of the articles that are posted, it brings back many memories. I recognized some familiar names. Distance and time may have separated us but Sagunto and the folks of Sagunto will be forever be in my heart. Thank you for making this site available and to keep us closer to what is transpiring in that part of the world.

      Starlyn!!! Pop up in my mind as soon as I read her name I was very new to Sagunto when they are leaving for US and I love that name and the one who own it they are at the Torres Family’s house residing before if I was not mistaken “kaka malagip mo pay ni Uncle Greg “boying” Q.?
      Am so happy being connected through the site.

    10. Starlyn

      evz!!! Yes, we did live next to autie Leoning Torres. After dad left for the U.S. , she was so kind to allow our family to build the house next to hers. Living in Sagunto taught me a lot about life, especially friendships. My family and I am are very grateful to many Saguntonians for their support when dad was the pastor at the Wesleyan church.
      I do remember the name of Uncle Greg “manong boying”. I wish I knew who you are, evz. This is wonderful to be connected even though we’re so far apart.

      This is funny, aglalo dagiti storya idi ubbing pay ti tao. Mayat no intay to sumang-at diay bantay no sumang-pet tay amin ta ag-picnic tayo. Do you want me to organize one? But I need to know all your free time so we can be all there. Once I know your schedules then I can talk to our friends in Sagunto to get ready with all that we need. We can also stay there for one night camping (bonfire ti rabii) and then we can tell stories of the past. Bring small tents… but perhaps we can arrange for that through our contact in Sagunto.
      Imbag a ta makitam manen da Mayora. Sayaatem ngarud ta bareng awisen datayto amin diay balayda no sumangpet tayo.

      RE: Mayor Kimi, haan mi nakita isuna ta she got held up in San Francisco but we had a nice visit with her assistant Mr. Karyo Carganilla. I have photos and will be uploading them soon with a write up of updates, etc. as we heard it during dinner at the mayor’s residence.

      I did meet some really nice Sisonians, though—including Aunty Evelyn Oropilla of San Diego and, of course, always nice to see Manang Amy Lachica and her family.

      Pinoys warned against online job offers
      By Pia Lee-Brago (The Philippine Star) Updated January 19, 2011 12:00 AM Comments (0)

      MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine embassy in London yesterday warned about a new illegal recruitment scam involving online job offers.

      According to a report by the Philippine Nurses Association-United Kingdom (PNA-UK) to the embassy, the new recruitment scam involves online job offers sent by email to prospective victims, mostly nurses, who have previously submitted their resumes to public job search websites.

      The supposed employer then sends the victim follow up emails containing a job offer, a contract of agreement with an attractive salary and benefits package, a certificate of employment, and a blank certificate of good moral character.

      Upon submission of documentary requirements, a detailed procedure of sending processing fees through wire transfer is then sent to the victim.

      The supposed employer’s solicitor usually identifies himself as a member of a prominent legal firm. In some cases, the employer sends photographs of his family in the UK via email in an attempt to assure the applicant that the process is legitimate.

      Once the applicant has paid the fees, the fraudulent employer and the solicitor terminate all contact with the victim.

      This modus operandi is similar to other online scams earlier reported by the embassy involving job offers for nannies, hotel staff, store managers, salespersons and engineers.

      The public is advised to always verify job offers in the UK with the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA).
