(Glossogobius giuris) is a freshwater fish native to Mainit Lake. It is called “biya” in Tagalog and “white goby or tank goby” in English. The term “pidjanga” is also sometimes fondly used to refer to the Mainitnons, the people of the Municipality of Mainit, a town in Southern Philippines. This blog hopes to capture potentials of Migrants Pidjangas for the Development of our Town by attempting to document development issues, folk stories, and current concerns, about the Pidjanga — both the fish and the people.

Liveblogging in Mainit!

First of all... I wish all Pidjanga visitors, most expecially all Mainitnons and Surigaonons, a bountiful New Year... May your wishes all come true especially this 2007.

My family had a great and memorable vacation. Our two kids did not only see our bloved hometowns, they also had the chance of playing with our old folks and their cousins and titos and titas and pamangkins.

Yes, I've finally tried 3G connectivity in Mainit and I was succesful... here's my Mainit-based blogging experience via Globe 3G.

Well, that was using my phone to access BLOGSPOT directly.

With the help of Monmon (using K610i) and Nonong (Nokia N70) we were able to connect a PC to the internet. We did not have time to maximize the potential of our cellphones' PC Suite so we failed at increasing internet speed. I think that the fastest we achieved was 115.2 kbps.

Well, at least, 3G works in Mainit and that is GOOD NEWS!

Mabuhay an PIDJANGA!

Back to work tomorrow, 3 January 2006! I will blog Mainit photos during the evenings... hope you're looking forward to it!
