    Best of the Islands Philippines

    Brief History

    With the organization of Tondo and La Laguna during the Spanish regime, Rizal Province was composed of towns. Some of the towns like pasig, Parañaque, Taytay and Cainta were already thriving because long before the Spanish conquest, the Tagalog settlements had already carried on trade with the Chinese.

    From 1582 to 1583, the Encomienda (Morong was under the jurisdiction of La Laguna and Passi (Pasig), Taitai (Taytay), Tagui (Taguig) belonged to Tondo. In 1591, the Encomeindas of Moron and Taitai were under the jurisdiction of Franciscan Order in La Laguna.

    The Augustinians in Tondo had jurisdiction of Nabotas (Navotas), Tambobo (Malabon), Tondo, Parañaque, Longalo (Dongalo), Taguig and Pasig.

    A new political subdivision was formed in 1853 consisting of the towns of Antipolo, Boso-Boso, Cainta, and Taytay from Tondo and the towns of Morong, Baras, Tanay, Palilla, Angono, Binangonan and Jalajala from La Laguna. Then in 1860, Tondo became the province of Manila, placing its towns under the fiscal supervision land control of the Governor of the new province. It was during the revolutionary government of General Emilio Aguinaldo when Mariquina (Marikina) became the capital of Manila. In 1898-1899, Antipolo became the capital of Morong, then in 1899-1900, Tanay became its capital.

    On 5 June 1901, the first Philippine Commission, headed by president William Taft and Commissioner Wright Ide and Dr. Trinidad Pardo de Tavera proposed the unification of Manila and Morong which resulted in the creation of a new province named after Dr. Jose P. Rizal, the Philippines' National Hero.

    Rizal Province was officially and legally created by virtue of Act No. 310 by the Philippine Commission. It was composed of 26 municipalities, 13 from the old province of Manila comprising Las Piñas, Malabon, Makati, Parañaque, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Navotas, Muntinlupa, Taguig, Pateros, Marikina, San Mateo and Rodriguez (formerly Montalban). The 12 other municipalities were from the district of Morong which include Angono, Baras, Binangonan, Cainta, Antipolo Cardona, Jalajala, Morong, Pilila, Tanay, Taytay and Teresa. But in 8 November 1975, the formed Metro Manila area was created by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 824 which resulted in the incorporation of the 12 towns of Las Piñas, Parañaque, Muntinlupa, Taguig, Pateros, Makati, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Malabon, Navotas, Pasig and Marikina. The remaining 14 towns were left to Rizal.

    When the Metro Manila Commission incorporated Pasig, the former capital, Rizal became the only province in the Philippines to have no capital town. But there is a proposal to make Antipolo as the new capital of the province.

Start a Collection

Give the children an activity that can last the entire summer and maybe beyond. Starting a collection is a good way to learn more about a topic and can be the start of a new
hobby. A good summertime activity is to begin a nature collection or book.

If your child is interested in a particular collecting genre it would be best to go with that first (seashells, stamps, hockey cards, etc.) but if they don’t and you want to introduce
them to the world of collecting here are some easy suggestions. Start a Collection
