(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.

The Complete MNHS Batch 1991

Trivia 1: NO ONE in our batch failed to graduate! Yes, EVERYONE who enrolled as 4th Year High School in MNHS last May-June 1990 ALL graduated by March 1991. (Ask me why!).

Trivia 2
: Only two failed the National College Entrance Exams (NCEE), and the highest got 98%. I got 96%.

Trivia 3: Al Rodin Behagan, now 3-term First Councilor-elect of the Municipality of Mainit, was and is the youngest in the batch. Look at him then (loy, ajaw ako patja hu, kay ikaw starring kuman. hehehe!). He was a year younger to most of us. He enrolled at Grade One as a "visitor", but he ended up among the top of our class (Second Honors) and was admitted to Grade Two the following year.
