Feast of the Guardian Angels, Philippines have been deeply influenced by the Spaniards during the Spanish occupation. One prominent aspect that made a remarkable imprint to our country’s history is their Catholicism. Filipinos before are known by their tribes and ethnic groups who worshipped different gods but when the time that we were colonized by the Spanish people for 333 years, our culture followed after their religious rituals and traditions. “Angeles” is the Spanish word for “angels” and most people especially devout Catholics believed in the existence of guardian angels. The former name of the city is “Culiat” because of the abundance of that woody vine in the area. Before, it was just a small barrio of San Fernando until Don Angel Pantaleon de Miranda finally paid for the legal separation of Culiat and declared it as a new town under its name “El Pueblos de los Angeles” (The People of the Angels) after the city’s patron saints, the Holy Guardian Angels. Presently, the Feast of the Guardian Angels has been one of the annual celebrations of Angeles City. Every 2nd day of October, the feast is being held by having a ceremonious parade of Guardian Angels’ images accompanied by numerous preschoolers from various schools wearing cute and charming angel costumes. Kuliat Festival is the overall celebration of Angeles City’s Foundation day and indeed, it also serve as the people’s way of showing gratitude to the town’s success and continuous progress through the help of its Guardian Angels.
The Perimeter Road or also known as Don Juico Avenue is the newest market entrant of the emerging business area of Angeles City. Hotels, Bars and Diners were mostly the usual establishments you will see along the Perimeter Road. The formerly dull and deserted place became one of the vibrant areas of the town. It became the talk of the town when luxurious hotels and condominiums eventually came out. It suddenly bloomed when hotels keep growing and people starts to notice the gradual progress of the area.

Actually, I have been very curious about this Clarkton Hotel because my friends told me about this place. They’ve mentioned that it’s one of the longest-running business in the city. When I went to the Philippines I wasn’t quite sure where to find it but a BIG THANKS to the City Guide maps, I was able to locate this wonderful hotel and I was surprised to see its beauty and meet the nicest people in the hotel. If ever you’ll come by this place, don’t forget to try their Mirror’s KTV, it awesome!!!
