Nayon Pilipino

Nang buhay pa ang Nayong Pilipino

Nayon Pilipino was the number one field trip choice of almost every Elementary school in the Greater Metro Manila area. Most of the Philippine’s landmarks can be seen in this big park; from Luzon’s volcanoes to Visayas’ chocolate hills, and Mindanao’s mosques, every Philippine landmark was there to see and feel. Nayon Pilipino could be considered as a national heritage in itself but due to unknown reasons the once popular and frequently visited park was closed. We hope one day the park will open again so that our future kids could experience the different Philippine landmarks we once experinced.

    Yes! When I was a kid we had a field trip there! It suddenly dissapeared though! I’m sure there is some crazy reason for their closure! THAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST PLACES FOR ALL OUR PHILIPPINE HERITAGE TO BE SHOWCASED! -=peace=-

    yes., sayang nga nawala na. the last i visisted the place was 1996…with my high school friends. grabe naman kse dun lahat ng mahawakan mo may bayad. ultimo yung mesang gagamitin mo para kumain may bayad. i remember, dun din yong place na first time kong maka witness ng Christian gathering, may umiiyak pa nga, and i didnt understand then.

    The Nayong Pilipino is still open, and open for free to joggers and exercise enthusiasts. Of course the old glory is no more, nothing is left but the Vigan House and the Mayon Volcano, and part of the Banaue Rice terraces. The Visayas and Mindanao areas are gone. A part of the park has been turned into an airsoft wargames area, and the place will soon be torn down to make way for the expanding international airprots.

    There is a new nayong pilipino to be built on the reclamation area on manila bay, but nothing can replace the 30 year-old trees and vegetation that will soon be bulldozed in the name of progress.

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
