I’m a pure blooded Ilocana. Both of my parents are born and raised in Ilocos Sur, so basically going to Vigan, Ilocos Sur is not something new for me. Back in my younger years, we always go there for vacation for at least one week. Others are envy of that fact, especially for those who haven’t been to this heritage city in the Northern Philippines. For the December Holidays we spent the last week on this historical place revisiting old buildings, museums, and churches. It may be tiring to visit one place all over and over again, but on the other hand it is where my roots are. Somehow the heritage they left behind made me all proud of my Ilocano origins.
