Growing in this little town of Angono, where I see the growth of its economy and people become more productive in there every day lives. It makes me think of the future. There will always be new establishments to be built and businesses to open. And for that, I know in the coming year ahead there will be a lot of improvement and changes to this town. But hopefully, people will remember where it all began… living a simple life in the peaceful town we called Angono.
