73rd Agew na Dagupan springs renewed hope for Dagupeños amid pandemic  

DAGUPAN CITY, June 20 (PIA) - Today, June 20, Dagupeños celebrate the 73rd “Agew na Dagupan” (Dagupan Day) with  renewed hope and resilience amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

Mayor Brian Lim said  the original charter day of Dagupan City passed by Congress on June 20, 1947 essentially laid the foundations for what people know today as Dagupan City.

“When we look back at our history, we give a sense of appreciation to the resilience of Dagupeños. We overcame challenges. We had successes but we also had time of failure and desperation and yet we are still here to celebrate Agew na Dagupan,’’  Lim said during a simple commemorative program at the city plaza.

This was agreed upon by 81-year-old Lilia Maramba of Brgy. Pogo Grande who said Dagupeños are strong people and their resilience is commendable.

“Matibay ya talaga iray Dagupeños. Manlapu la nen panaon na Hapon anggad natan ya walaan yay COVID-19. Kinasian tayo na Dios a katawan tan manbibilay tinin maoksoy anggad natan, (Dagupeños are really strong. From the Japanese occupation until today where there is COVID-19. God spared us and we continue to live peacefully until now)” Maramba told the Philippine Information Agency (PIA).

The Philippine National Railways (PNR) began operations as the Ferrocarril de Manila-Dagupan during the Spanish colonial period. This is the first railroad locomotive that made its maiden trip from Manila to Dagupan on Nov. 24, 1892. It  went on display at the Dagupan City plaza since its arrival in 2005.

Veteran broadcaster and  popular news commentator Orly Navarro, who hails from Brgy. Pantal, one of the most populated barangays in the city,  said a slogan coined in 1992 after the deadly earthquake and flood puts the perspective as “Dagupan is unsinkable, to leave you is impossible."

“Amayamay ya pagsubok ya dinalan tayo. Singa amay 1935 ya delap, aramay puol ya baleg insan ayan pandemic, amayamay ya catastrophe tan force majeure ya tatawagen, and yet we struggled and survived. Dakerakel niray improvement ya agawa ed siyudad tan ondarakel iray negosyo. (We have been through so many challenges. Like the 1935 flood, big fire and now this pandemic. A lot of catastrophe and force majeure and yet we struggled and survived. There are even a lot of improvements in the city and businesses continue to thrive),” Navarro told the PIA.

For Dagupeña Arleen Lopez Villanueva, who hails from Brgy. Pogo Chico and  is now  a nurse in New York City, even if her feet reached overseas, she still embodies  the resilience of Dagupeños.

“As a Dagupeña who has survived flood and earthquakes in the past, COVID-19 has been very challenging but something I knew I could overcome. As a frontliner and a New York  resident where this pandemic is US epicenter, with God’s help and the experiences I had in my youth in Dagupan City where I was molded to be a strong person, I stood up even after the heavy smoke,” Lopez Villanueva told the PIA. 

Master lensman Willie Lomibao has captured many memorable moments and historical photos in his camera as a correspondent for a national daily.

Lomibao said  he has endured many big floodings in the city  but the 2018 typhoon and flooding has submerged most of his file photos, newspaper collections and photography books,  but like all Dagupeños, still managed to cope and rise up.

“So far in recent years, kahit masasabi nating maraming malalaking bangungot dahil sa mga situations na akala mo hindi na makakabangon, little by little, we were able to rise up and prosper. It is a good thing that our government was able to function properly despite the pandemic,” Lomibao said.

Even from the youth group, who were born in a world of internet connections and Facebook, agree that the resilience of Dagupeños is worth bowing to.

Seventeen-year-old Cameron Aquino of St. Albert the Great School located in Brgy. Malued, said at a young age, she has survived flood and experienced  this pandemic.

“Dagupeños are survivors and fighters. They always rise up after big challenges. Take a bow, my fellow Dagupeños,” Aquino said.

Dagupan City’s name was derived from the local Pangasinan word "pandaragupan," meaning "gathering place" as the city has been  a major commercial and financial center north of Manila for centuries.

Also, the city is one of the centers of education, modern medical services, media and communication in North-Central Luzon.

It is the only chartered city in the province and boasts of the world’s tastiest  bangus or milkfish. (JCR/AMB/VHS/PIA Pangasinan)

Why are Filipinos known for their lack of reading comprehension?

Because according to most of them: "Well-mannered is better than well-educated" That's why most of the Filipinos never progress. It is because of the trash mindset.

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.

Isang Pasasalamat

Sabi nila: “There’s always something to be thankful for.” Kaya ako din may sasabihin! 🤣✌️ Isang pasasalamat! 💗 Sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa akin, maraming salamat po. Sa mga pagtulong sa akin, kahit hindi ko sinasabi, pero ginagawa pa rin, Thank you. Hindi ko man nasasabi personally pero taos puso ang pasasalamat ko sa inyo. Alam kong alam niyo na kung sino kayo. Isa na lang mahihiling ko talaga, ang mapanatili ang genuine and lasting friendship na nabuo natin. 💗 Kung may nasaktan o na-offend ako dahil sa mga paniniwala o pangbubully ko. Humihingi ako ng paumanhin. Kung isa ka sa ma-ooffend ko pa lang. Humihingi na ako agad ng paumanhin. Dahil din sa inyo, may natutunan at matututunan ako. Kung isa ka sa mga nagsasabing suplado ako, pasensiya na. Nagkakamali po kayo. =) Sa mga napasaya ko kahit paano, maraming salamat. Kayo ang magiging inspirasyon ko na ipagpatuloy ang paglaban ng taas noo at ngiting tagos hanggang puso sa darating pang mga taon. Sa mga nakakamiss sa akin,
