Updates of Eulalia Mantica’s story:
Hi, I’m Eulalia!
My name is Eulalia Mantica but everybody calls me ‘Inday’. It’s a common nickname for us Visayans. I live in Bullis Barangay in Ubay Municipality on the island of Bohol in the Central Visayas Region of the Philippines. Here, we’ve got a tropical climate here with lots of rain and temperatures of 30°+ all year round. It’s a great climate for rice, as we can grow two or more crops a year.
