Small Town with a Big Heart!

That’s the motto of Pateros: “Small Town with a Big Heart!”. Indeed, Pateros is a small town, the smallest in fact of all the cities and municipalities that made up Metro Manila.


Whenever I hear the town of Pateros, three things comes to my mind: “balot”, “penoy” and “alfombra”. Balot is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled alive and eaten in the shell. Penoy on the other hand, doesn’t have the fertilized duck in it. Alfombra is a type of sandals, used mostly indoors.

Yesterday, I visited this small town and took some pictures of their Poblacion (the town proper). I love their church, the San Roque Parish because of it’s cozy atmosphere. I love the streets, clean and not so crowded with tricycles.

I can say that the town is really small, but with a big heart. Click here to know about the history of the town.
