WELCOME TO PASSI CITY. It is the only component city in the island of Panay and the largest in the province of Iloilo. It became the first component city on January 30, 1998 with the signing of R.A. 8469 by Pres. Fidel V. Ramos.
I went to Passi City yesterday. I arrived there almost lunch time. I went directly to Jollibee. It is the only food chain in the northern area.
After I ate, I rested on one of the benches in the center of plaza.
Then, I went to the church. It is the Baroque Church of Saint William. I found almost all the statue of Saints. Some I can recognized by looking the symbol they're holding although there's a written name of each saint. If you are a Catholic too, I know you can recognize the saint with the rooster below.
I can't take the whole church because there's unlimited space backward. That's why I came up with this idea. It's not a perfect shot though.
I've heard from my officemate this morning that KC Concepcion visited Passi City last Saturday. She came again to visit her adopted girls @ The Cameleon Association Center. It is located specifically @ Brgy. Sablogon. It is a non-stock and non-profit French-Filipino association that protects and rehabilitates girls in difficult circumstances ages five to sixteen coming from different places of Panay Island. It also provides educational assistance through a sponsorship program to the unfortunate children of Passi City.
I came back in the city of Iloilo with a great smile because I was able to visit and know much about one of the beautiful places around here in Western Visayas (the place I truly belong). Of course, I did not forget to bring home the sweet pineapple!
I will post next the other town I dropped by before I went to Passi City.
