Once upon a time, tiny aliens from the Arquillian Galaxy came to Udyong to escape from an invasion of giant cockroaches. 

They first disguised as white friars to intimidate the natives and hid the treasure of their galaxy in the hollow of wood beams shaped into a cross.

In what is now Abucay, they re-established their kingdom and built a giant castle which today is known as the church of St. Dominic de Guzman who was actually their first king on earth.

But the earth's air was deadly for the lung-less Arquillians who eventually found refuge beneath the salty waters of Manila Bay where they morphed into various forms of sea species which fishers now catch and smoke into that famous Bataan tinapa and tuyo.

They built another castle in Udyong --- today known as the church of St. Michael the Archangel who was the Arquillian king at that time --- and moved there the treasure hidden in the cross at Abucay which is actually a set of tiny stars stitched into a belt that was smuggled into earth as the collar of a cat called Orion.

When the cat died while protecting the treasure from the giant cockroaches who finally found the Arquillian colony on earth, Udyong was renamed Orion in its honor and the treasure moved to a fortress built in present day Orani where it remains hidden until today in the necklace of its custodian who is known as the Nuestra Senora Virgen del Santo Rosario...
