  1. I would like to say pretty costume….
    But whoever picked this story inspiration is effin STUPID!!!! OMG this is one of those fake highly romanticised lola Basyang stories submitted during the Quirino admin to pass as local “history”…..

    FYI, Mandaluyong is from “Hacienda de Mandaluyon”, a Hispanized name picked by Friar Alonzo de Alvarado(who accompanied Mexican born conquistador Juan de Salcedo) from the local native description of the area which is “Ma-DALUYONG”….. The preffix “ma”- which means “full (of)”… and Daluyong which is old tagalog for “Waves” which refers to the waves along the riverbanks of the ancient settlement of “Namayan” who’s ground zero is allegedly in what is now still called Barangay Namayan, Mandaluyong City across Santa Ana Manila… That part of the Pasig river is said to be “Full of Waves” due to it’s geographical location which echoes the rolling hills of the Huge Hacienda which is also under the “Kingdom of Namayan” who’s outer territory spans most of what is now 80% of Metro Manila, from what is now Makati, Taguig, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Pasay, Parañaque, Muntinlupa,Taytay, Quezon City, to parts of North Caloocan( except Pasig which was under Tondo) and possibly includes all the settlements surounding Laguna de Bay during that time… The whole Kingdom is ruled by the family and relatives of Dayang Kalangitan who’s a direct descendant of Lakan Timamanukum of Borneo (who united Bicola Region, Tagalog region and parts of Central Luzon under his rule) and documented to be the wife of Raja Lontok who is the Crown Prince of the Brunei and Sulu empire.

    For the costume.. I would have given this 7.5 stars for the execution…. but due to the lack of actuall research for inspiration and spreading FAKE NEWS, I am giving this 5.5 stars out of 10… which I believe is the lowest rating I gave to any girl in this year’s batch of BBP.

  2. Aawww…. LOVE the “batya” shield. 🙂

    I didn’t know Mandaluyong City had a “Labandero Festival”. It should attract BIG/MAJOR corporate sponsors, I reckon.

    (OT. The Final of MKO 2021 looms… Hope Blogger Master posts the results.)
