ok, that might have sounded uncouth. actually, i scoured the google search results on the topic some time back and just saved all the pertinent stuff as one big text file, so it'd be kinda a chore to do the search all over again. i think wikepedia has some stuff on pinoy myths, though. try searching there for baconaua (or bakonawa). :)
