Geography and Location of Pasig City, Philippines
- 14.5872° N, 121.0611° E - Pasig, Coordinates
- article copied verbatim from: http://www.roquebutuyan.com/mypigafetta/history.html
Like other human settlements built around water sources, Pasig was a peaceful kingdom built around the river called Bitukang Manok before the Spaniards came. Bitukang Manok was a part of today’s Pasig River. The pre-Spanish communities were Malays, Chinese and the Tingues a minority found in the forested mountains of Pasig.
According to historians Dr. Lucio PR Santiago and Elizabeth Lolarga, the kingdom was ruled by Dayang Kalangitan, wife of Gat Lontok. They had four children: Dayang Panginoon who married Gat Balagtas of Sapa (now Sta. Ana), Dayang Lahat, who married Gat Timog, Raha Salalila or Soliman I of Maynila and Gat Kahiya. Soliman I would become the father of Raha Matanda or Ache, Soliman II of Maynila and Lakan Dula of Tondo.
Bitukang Manok would play an important role in history but through the years, it dried up, became a shallow and dirty estero called Parian Creek, and is now gone, its dry beds home to various new structures, including a McDonald’s and the Pasig Police Headquarters.
The Adelantado Don Miguel Lopez de Legazpi granted the encomienda of Pasig to Don Juan de la Isla on November 14, 1571. The first town center was located in Baranggay Pinagbuhatan but because it was always becoming flooded, the town center was located to a higher ground.
A year later, the town of Pasig under the province of Tondo was declared a reduccion. As a reduccion, Pasig formally became a village or settlement established by Spanish missionaries for the religious and cultural education of the so-called “Indios.”
It was almost two years after Pasig became an encomienda that the parish received its first bell and was inaugurated on July 2, 1573. Pasig’s first patron Saint was the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary but five years later, on April 25, 1587, the Augustinian parish would be formally known as the Parish of the Immaculate Conception...>>>Continue Reading:>>>

Natural Resources of Pasig City, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

Pasig LP mayoral bet makes house calls, even sleeps over
By DJ Yap
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 06:50:00 04/24/2010
MANILA, Philippines—He gives new meaning to house-to-house campaign.
This candidate makes not only home visits but sometimes even sleeps over.
Pasig mayoral candidate Ricardo Reyes of the Liberal Party has an entirely different campaign strategy—he stays the night during his house visits with urban poor families in hopes of getting to know the voters.
“This way, you [develop] a sense of solidarity with them,” Reyes, one of the founders and former chair of the left-leaning Akbayan party-list, told the Inquirer recently.
“I swap stories with them at night. Sometimes, when we go on house-to-house [visits], we start at 6 p.m. When it’s 8 or 9 p.m., or even 10 p.m., we have to rest already, so we just stay over. This way, we have more time to talk [with the family],” he said.
Reyes said he had done this in three barangays—Pinagbuhatan, San Miguel and Manggahan—and planned to repeat the experience in other communities, especially those severely hit by last year’s Tropical Storm “Ondoy” which had inundated several low-lying parts of Pasig.
He said supporters, including a bodyguard, would accompany him during the sleepovers. He would share a meal and a bed (or in some cases, a hard floor) with the family.
Left is good
He said he had a lot of catching up to do to wrest the mayor’s seat from incumbent Mayor Robert “Bobby” Eusebio, who remains in a strong position of winning a second consecutive term.
“Actually, I’ve been walking for the past 20 days already, sometimes 8 hours a day,” Reyes said.
He said his identification with the Left turned out to be more beneficial than harmful to the campaign, noting that Pasig residents generally had positive feelings about leftist groups, largely due to the influence of party-list organizations like Akbayan.
He said Eusebio’s camp, during the early stages of the campaign period, started calling him a “communist or a member of the New People’s Army,” but this eventually died down.
Reyes said he was banking on three kinds of voters in Pasig: The intelligent and principled ones who do not want a dynasty, those who are angry at the Eusebios, and those who are “fed up” with the incumbent’s kind of governance.
He admitted that he had not really planned on challenging Eusebio.
Reyes said he accepted the role of opposition candidate only after the surprising withdrawal of Robert “Dodot” Jaworski Jr. in late 2009.
“I was supposed to be Dodot’s councilor,” he said. “I never planned to run for mayor.”
According to Reyes, his campaign is focused on perceptions and allegations that Pasig remains mired in illegal drugs, and that at the very least, Eusebio is responsible for leaving much of the drug activity unchecked.
“The drug issue cuts across classes, from the poor communities to the exclusive subdivisions,” he said.
Reyes said Pasig had transformed from an “industry and culture hub” into a “drug den which saps the future away from the youth under the administration of former Mayor Vicente Eusebio and his son Robert Eusebio.
He also said the entry of Eusebio’s brother, Ricky Eusebio, into the race for second district councilor was an indication that the family was planning to extend its “dynasty.”
“That’s also how Bobby started. He first ran for councilor,” Reyes said.
The Eusebios have ruled Pasig City since 1992, with the mayor’s seat alternately going to the father, Vicente Eusebio (1992-2001 and 2004-2007), the mother, Soledad Eusebio (2001-2004), and the son, Robert Eusebio (2007-present).
Reyes admitted he had little experience in the executive department, with most of his credentials in the parliamentary or legislative department. But if he wins, he said he would focus on the delivery of free social services to residents.
He said the Eusebios were doing an excellent job in public works, such as constructing and maintaining roads and bridges, but their social services left much to be desired.
For instance, “the most essential component of humane relocation is not being followed. There should be jobs available in the relocation sites. There should be essential services like electricity, water, and access to clinics and hospitals. My opponent is not ready to provide that,” Reyes said.
Wishing for Noy to revisit
He added that he was trying to convince LP presidential candidate Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III to schedule another visit to Pasig City, and make his endorsement of Reyes’ candidacy more widely known. (Eusebio is with the Nacionalista Party of Aquino’s rival, Sen. Manuel Villar.)
Like Aquino, Reyes said that his candidacy is not a desire for power but rather a wish to serve.
He said corruption starts from people who want power, and for any real change to occur, power must go to those who want it the least.
