My roots……

My Roots……

I came from a country consisting of 1,107 islands called the “Pearl of the Orients Seas”.

It was named after the king of Spain, King Phillip, since the Spaniards are the ones who (said to be) discovered the Island, now it is called the Philippines islands.

But there were still strong malays, the first brown people who are the inhabitants of the islands that fought back to the conquistadores, the conquerors.

The Philippines has many conquerors, that make faces as traders but in reality are the “silent invaders”. The Philippines is divided into three archipelago, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. The Spaniards invade the Visayan islands and parts of Mindanao, while the rest of the neighbor asians and Americans scattered around all over the islands looking for good strategies in both sea, land and even air.

There are many beautiful stories different Spanish leaders who come to the island with their variety of purposes and how the native Filipinos welcome them or drive them away because of their abuses, countless abuses on land, properties and rights, wealth and their women.

Spices is said to be the main reason of Spanish conquering the world and the truth is that there are more then 100 strong herbs in the island that can cure, relieved great diseases around the world like HIV and cancer….it is updated to this time and I will feature it in my upcoming post.

The Clark Air Base located in the mid-section of Luzon up to the bayside of Zambales, Olongapo city lies the Subic Naval Base of U.S.A. and one also at Cavite city, the Sangley Point of the Philippines and Camp John Hay at Baguio city, the summer capital of the country. These are all the influenced of the Americans and they left country a lot of influence in culture, lifestyles, food, music and innumerable things until their last influence the Subic and the Clark Air Base close contract in the 90’s.

The Asian influence was a very silent invasion; it was just like a sleeping dragon that when it wakes up, all that reaches his sight is his own. They are the so called traders, our neighboring traders.

So as you can summarized my roots, its all mixes up from different cultures, different races, from south, east and west, just according to the time and space it occurs. As you can see, they have different stories to tell, beautiful and amazing stories and lots to learn to with this mix mind to write these, Please do go back o visit this sight and be patient to read it. Thank you.
