Are you aware that the Eusebio and Asilo family have their own country in Pasig City? It’s located in Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City on the boundary of Taytay, Rizal and Napindan, Taguig. It’s called the Eusebio-Asilo Country and mainly composed of the several home owners association along Sandoval Avenue, Kenneth Road and Molave Street.

The Eusebio-Asilo Country is one of the most populous areas in Pasig City and is rumored to be a source of votes for the Eusebio and Asilo clans. It is also rumored that a certain Ka Ida, Mr. Go, Kenneth and Robert Lim owned these areas before it became a property of the Pasig City Government. Thus, one of the streets here in Nagpayong (Kenneth Road) is named after one of the former owners. The Nagpayong area used to be a dump site for Pasig City and was turned into a relocation site for Pasig City’s informal settlers.
Since then, the Eusebio-Asilo Country has been transformed from a dump site, into a thriving community. A lot of businesses have been slowly established within the Sandoval Avenue and Kenneth Road. Sandoval Avenue is the gateway for motorists going to C-6 Road and Taytay, Rizal while Kenneth Road leads to C-6 Road and Napindan, Taguig City.
Unfortunately, Nagpayong, Pinagbuhatan is still an area for informal settlers. In spite of the Community Mortgage Program (CMP) established several years ago, most of the residents of this area in Pasig City are without any land title, including our very own Square Ville HOAI. I do hope that the Urban Poor Services Office (UPSO) of Pasig City will do whatever it can in assisting us, the informal settlers of Nagpayong, in achieving a land title.

The Bahay Aruga and Bahay Kalinga – the most glamorous orphanage I’ve ever seen. It’s beside the Pasig City Jail. In case of a jail-break, they could hostage the kids in this orphanage. Clever idea for a location.
