    KM 159

    by tanamay Updated Jan 28, 2014
    Km post 159

    Kilometer post 159 found in Barangay San Lorenzo, Sitio Aluhin (north of the town) with 1 km to town.
    This means Mauban is located at Km 158.
    I still remember those bus rides during my student days showing on the bus ticket that Mauban is at km 164, a six km difference.

    Santa Lucia is one of the barangay of the town of Mauban along Lamon Bay. It can be reached by taking a banca from the town or cross the Maapon river by a short banca ride, motrocylce ride and walk to the barangay.

    1725 Public Bath ('Paliguang Bayan' or 'Banio')

    Public Bath main water outlet

    At the end of San Buenaventura St. (corner Mabini), between Barangays Daungan & Mabato you will find this Public Bath (the sign has long since gone). It is commonly known as "Banio" (bath).

    The overflow water from the town's water reservoir flows here. Formerly, water continuously flows out of the mouth at the front acting as water outlet - now water does not flow continuously showing our dwindling resources.

    Mornings will see and hear (beating clothes) women washing clothes here.

    You can take a bath here, but remember boys to the left and girls to the right.

    In my youth, I still remember fetching water here when the town mains dries up during summer.

    On July 14, 2012, the National Museum's marker for the Public Bath was unveiled. This was after the bath was refurbished (new paint, smaller main water outlet, etc). After the unveiling ceremony the Public Bath was padlocked (hopefully not permanently).

    Update of May 2013
    There is notice at the Public Bath entrance informing that the place is under renovation and those wishing to enter the "Banio" can coordinate through the following phones: +63 (42) 7841205/7130314/7130345 or +63 (922)3838883/(921)6154905/(921)8126071 and you will be accompanied by a Tour Guide.

    Ang Tabak ng Mauban

    by tanamay Updated Apr 23, 2012

    This monument at the entrance of the Gat Uban Park symbolizes the town hero's "tabak" ("itak" in the local parlance = bolo, machete).

    Used to be found at the end of Gomez Street leading to the park/sea. Unfortunately this monument was torn down.

    Photo taken 12/31/2010.

    the province of Quezon is really famous for the "pansit" or commonly known as pansit habhab or pansit luglug, it is a local delicacy of stirfried noodles in the province they will serve it using banana leaves and you will have to eat it without any utensils, of course you can use one or ask them to give you sticks or fork but by tradition it is being eaten directly from the banana leaves
