San Fabian is a 1st class municipality in the province of Pangasinan, Philippines.

According to the latest census, it has a population of 74,005 people in 12,690 households.

I have heard of San Fabian from my co-worker Rainier. He is from San Fabian, Pangasinan.

I found out that San Fabian beach has been one of the most visited places in the early 70’s and 80’s until the late 90’s. Visitors from Isabela, Cagayan, Nueva Ecija, Nueva Viscaya, Tarlac, La Union, and Benguet usually flock the beach every 1st day of May – “Pista ng Dagat Festival”.

The beauty of the San Fabian beach invites people who come to the Shrine of Our Lady of Manaoag.

Thanks for reading.

135 kilometers from Manila is General Nakar, Province of Quezon. We took the Marikina – Infanta route, also known as MARILAQUE hiway. From Marcos hiway, go straight all the way to Sampaloc, Tanay. The roads here are newly cemented and asphalted.  You will encounter minor potholes due to rains, but very minimal.

We want to visit the river.

After this arc, we turned left towards the river.

We rested for a while under the trees. It’s 12 PM.

On to the river, on foot.


Now back to the bikes and get our a#%$s home.

Currimao. A funny sounding name.

We used to laugh at that when we were younger.

My friend Loi used to call us currimao when he is teasing us and wanted to look funny. Well, now I know it is a place.

Why are we here?

2 words. Best Friends. Raffy,s dear friend moved here a year ago. We call him BOSSING.

Galante daw si BOSSING before. He used to live in Marikina and used to work at Fortune Tobacco.

This is the business now of BOSSING. Farming.

We rested and BOSSING prepared the best meal in town.
