The last time I have been to Carriedo was more than 10 years ago. Back when I was a high school student who happened to have a very close classmate and friend living in this barangay in Irosin. After our graduation, we lost contact and I hardly go ho home. Only this year when I had a chance to visit Carriedo because a family friend who married a girl from Carriedo and moved there invited us to join the birthday celebration of their child.

My earliest memory of the barangay of Carriedo in Irosin is that it is full of rice fields and houses are usually made of nipa huts and wooden materials. Now, it is way, way different. The roads are cemented and the houses have mushroomed everywhere. The rice fields though are still there so the feeling of authentic barrio experience is still there.
