(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 Lake Mainit Resort (Hotel and Pools). Legacy of the Mondano administration. This project was heavily criticized because of the administration's seeming lack of prioritization. I, too, was one of those who provided critical scrutinies. But looking at this magnificent and beautiful structure and landmark, I feel proud, that finally, we can already accomodate our tourists with smile and pride. Well, tan-awon ta an management and maintenance kun unhon.

Where is this? The former Lakeview Bakery? or the Moyon Grocery?

The Legislative Building. Legacy of Vice Mayor Nonoy Mosende and current councilors.

IT services are available in Mainit.

Salamat Mon for sharing.
