Good Vibes in Pres. Ramon Magsaysay Ancestral House

Structures of history. Structures that make us remember not merely our country’s past, but, in the view of people like me who weren’t able to witness it and only learned it through books and education, it’s also the memories while we were learning about it. That’s the impact of the place for my bestfriend and I when we stopped over the place while on our way back to Manila after our trip in Potipot Island, Zambales. We reminisced our childhood, especially our high school days.

Ramon Magsaysay was also known as ‘Idol of the Masses’. Born in the Philippines on August 31, 1907, he was the seventh president of the Philippines (1953–57), best known for successfully defeating the communist-led Hukbalahap (Huk) movement in his country and his popular appeal. He died in his country in 1957. Learn more

It was fascinating to see the memorabilia of Ramon Magsaysay located in Castillejos, Zambales, though it is poorly sign-boarded. People can easily drive past without even becoming aware that there is a place of such national significance. By the way, this is not the house where he spent his years. The original house was damaged in 1990 due to the Pinatubo eruption. This house has just been built in the same spot.
