on Escano assets
The Escanos still own a good part of VECO (Visayan Electric ) Cebu alsp thru family members married into the Garcia clan and their relatives the Salas,Faelnars etc. They are intermarried with some of the richer families in the Philippines. In Leyte they own or possess almost 2000 hectares. Wealth is a genetic thing and those who are rich for one generation only don't have the genes.

re escanos
Designer Monique Lhuillier is an Escano on her lola's (Angelita E. Lhuillier) side. Pianist Ingrid Sala Santamaria, whose daughter Crispy married into the Laurels, is also an Escano if I'm not mistaken. Some Velosos in Cebu are also Escanos.
