(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.


Turned 33 years old today and celebrated it in 4 countries... 1) Manila, Philippines, 2) Guangxi, China, 3) Frankfurt, Germany, and 4) Geneva, Switzerland courtesy of course of Lufthansa. Quite a unique experience.

Jesus Christ died at the age of 33 and he has already saved the world! Well, he is God!

This little Pidjanga, still has a long way to go... marami pang bigas na kakainin! But despite my shortcomings, I am still very thankful... God has been very, very kind to me... with a loving wife, with 2 kids and another one coming, with a good educational foundation and a promising career... and with very loyal and supportive friends and family members... life is great! But I still wish for more... so that I can give more and more!
