Someone considering moving to my town should know that we venerate our patron saints well. Our citizens gather in their feast days in order to commemorate the things that they have done to our town. We are also a small town but we have a big heart for hospitality. We have an annual town feast wherein merchants from all over the region come to sell their products.

The municipality of Pateros is well known for Balut Capital of the Philippines. It is also known for the handcrafted slippers called alpombra. The Balut Festival or Fiesta of Pateros is celebrated in January yearly and it is very important to residents of Pateros.

The municipality where I live is known for its rich and exotic delicacies, such as “balut” and salted eggs. We take pride in our history as a small town, and we are close to both the practices of our Spanish and Chinese cultural ties. We’re also known for how old-fashioned and simple we are, so etiquette from the city might be a little too much for the local residents here.

Pateros is the ‘Balut’ capital of the Philippines. It is a municipality because of it’s small lot area and small population. The Makati city owned the municipality back in the days until it was decided that Pateros will be independent from Makati.

Pateros is famous for boiled duck embryos. It is a municipality. In fact, the only municipality in Metro Manila. The town is particularly small but cities usually passes by the humble town to get to new places. The town holds so much history within the neighbouring cities.
