Pasay City History

Pasay was originally a barrio of maasim (Masama). People then clamored for separation which was granted on December 2, 1863.

One of its most famous inhabitants in Pasay is former Pasay City Mayor Miguel Cornejo. He is the father of famous Filipino music composer Rodolfo Cornejo and lawyer/pianist Crisanto Cornejo.

Pasay became a city on June 21, 1947 with a population of 88,000 and was renamed Rizal City, after Jose Rizal, the country's national hero. In 1949, it was renamed back to Pasay.

On August 21, 1983, Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr. (the husband of former Philippine President Corazon Aquino) was assassinated in Manila International Airport (now Ninoy Aquino International Airport) during the Marcos Administration.

On May 21, 2006, SM Mall of Asia was opened in Bay City. Pasay City's city anniversary is every 2nd day of December.

Philippines Cuisine Characteristics

The traditional way of eating is with the hands, especially dry dishes such as inihaw or prito. The diner will take a bite of the main dish, then eat rice pressed together with his fingers.

This practice, known as kamayan, is rarely seen in urbanized areas. However, Filipinos tend to feel the spirit of kamayan when eating amidst nature during out of town trips, beach vacations, and town fiestas.
