San Rafael is my city in the Philippines. There is a well-known festival here which is called “Angel Festival”. A lot of students will find in their various angel costumes, every September 29. On the other hand, there are also a lot of historical places here that reminded us of the past on how Filipinos fight for our country’s democracy.

Before you move to our city, I want you to know people in our community are hospitable and friendly. You don’t need to be scared. Also, you must taste our delicious delicacies here especially pastillas and bibingka. Another is the festivals here are so beautiful! Festivals like Angel festival, Buntal Festival, Carabao Festival, and more.

Our city is a peaceful place to move. People here are cheerful and hospitable. Our place is just along the highway which make it accessible to supermarkets, schools, churches and others. This city is also starting to attract investors which is good for the locals for employment. Our city is also promoting tourism and products for the additional income of the locals.

Our town is almost near the nearest business point in our province. Also, our town can provide basic needs such as food, water and basic government services such as tax paying, birth registration, police clearance services, etc. In terms of safety as I observed our town, there are almost little to no crimes at all which is good if you’re consider your safety.

Our municipality is less than one hour drive north of Manila when there’s no traffic. During rush hours, though, the average travel time may be two to three hours from the capital city. It’s a suburb, but you will feel like it’s quite urbanized when you live near the highway. It’s a first class municipality.

San Rafael, Bulacan, is known for notorious individuals. The municipality has issues with drug syndicates, prohibited possession of firearms, and extrajudicial killings. People who are new–and clueless–to this town should look for a house in a more peaceful barangay.

My hometown is very peaceful and ideal for those who seek simple way of life. There is not much traffic, and all that you need are very much accessible. You can find famous delicacies and exotic food that will make you crave for more and decide to stay there for good. The longganisa here is cheap yet tastes like the famous longganisa from Vigan.
