Alabang Bulletin is giving away a laptop bag!
Well, the winner never emailed us again so we’re giving this one away again:)
Yes, we know you will look good in a World Traveller Flight Bag;p
You can either put your laptop or netbook (36cmx28cmx13cm) or other stuff when you travel around the Philippines or on you business trip somewhere:)
Anyway, we are looking for the lucky author of a comment made in any of the posts written from July 16 to August 16.
We will be entering the names/emails of the “commentators” in random.org to determine who will win the bag. Remember, more comments you make, the more chances for you to win the bag as we will enter your name with all the entries you make:)
The history of the name “Muntinlupa” comes from at least three stories.
* First, its association with the thin topsoil in the area.
* Second, residents, purportedly replying to a question by Spaniards in the 16th century what the name of their place was, said “Monte sa Lupa”—apparently mistaking the question for what card game they were playing.
* Third, the topographical nature of the area, where the term Monte or mountain was expanded to Muntinlupa or mountain land.
Some documents suggest that the first and third versions of Muntinlupa and Monte sa Lupa respectively eventually became Muntinlupa either through misspelling or mispronunciation. But no record to date can firmly establish which of the three versions is historically correct.
Muntinlupa is an old term that refers to a barangay hence called as Munting Lupa (which means a smaller branch of a city or a municipality, often referred to a county) now known as the Población. As early as 1800, the Catholic priest Father Joaquín de Zúñiga chronicled it as La poblacion que sigue se llama Muntinlupa and Muntinglupa was used as the Tagalog term for the city during the American era.
what’s this about?, it is interesting:))
Alamat ng Alabang
– galing sa salitang ‘abang’ na ibig sabihin ay bantay o taong nag-iintay
– dati ay masyadong magubat, mraming turista, at ang daan lang ay pa-Zapote
– maraming nananakawan, at kilala bilang notorious, tulisan
– galing rin daw sa salitang ‘alibangbag’ na ang ibig sabihin ay maliliit na puno na namumulaklak ng kulay lilac at ginagamit iyong pampaasim sa karne, pinagkukunan ng balat ng puno para sa mga nagtatae
Pasong Diablo – ang daan kung saan naghihintay ang tulisan at maraming kasamaan
Pasong Pari – lugar kung saan nilibing ng buhay ng mga Kastila ang mga pari, malapit sa South Super Highway, St. Bernadette School, at Sharp
Unang panahon – Mulntinlupa, puro kumbento
1890-1896 – wala ng kumbento, tirahan na ng mga guardia sibil
1892 – paring Kastila ang nanirahan, may lupain kung saan pinatay ang mga pari
1903 – 603 ang naninirahan sa Alabang
2003 – 48,002 ang naninirahan sa Alabang, hindi kasama ang Ayala Alabang
Apat na Paraan kung paano Namumuhay ang mga taga-Alabang
1. pangingisda sa Laguna de Bay
2. nagtatanim at nagsasaka
3. nagtratrabaho sa Serum Vaccine Laboratory (ngayon ay tawag ng Institute for Medicine)
4. stock farm kung saan kumukuha ng gatas ng kalabaw o baka
