Political Dynasty: Ilocos Sur Political Trend, Threatens Life and Dignity

Large scale corruption by elected officials, violence and harassment are the dominant features of the political landscape, exploiting and endangering the lives of the majority poor. Candidates of the 2010 elections shows a very disturbing and alarming political trend in Ilocos Sur. Political lordship has become a private property being inherited, passed on or transferred to every family member of a political clan. Worse is elective political position is turned into a family owned and cotrolled business, to the detriment of various families already wallowing in appalling poverty.

Baluarte Watch Tower

Built by the Spaniards during their heydays, the mighty Baluarte was used as watch tower and observation post by the authorities for impending danger from the sea. Not from typhoons or tsunamis, but from the Abu Sayafs at that time: the Japanese, Chinese and Moro pirates who took pleasure in raping coastal towns and settlements.

Ilocos Norte launches new heritage walk

PRESS RELEASE FROM PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT OF ILOCOS NORTE

To further boost Ilocos Norte’s tourism campaign, Paoay Kumakaway!, the history-bound Marcos Trail, was reintroduced last September 11, with a new heritage walk situated in the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos’ birth town, Sarrat.


As part of the weeklong celebration for the 96th birthday of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos (FEM) dubbed as “Marcos Fiesta”, the 1-kilometer “Sarrat Heritage Walk” was launched, comprising of 7 stops, each featuring a time-sculpted infrastructure resounding the 18th-century Sarrat—from the earliest settlers, to the Spanish regime, noted government officials up to the Marcos-Edralin families.


Included in the walk are namely, the Sarrat House Museum, originally FEM’s birthplace, the New Municipal Hall, the Old Municipal Hall, Sta. Monica Parish Church, the Diocesan Museum, Sarrat Central Elementary School, and the Amparo Park or the Sta. Monica Riverview Deck.

VIRTUAL TOURS: Kapurpurawan Rock and Sand Dunes

The first stop, the Sarrat House Museum, is the birthplace and the home for the young Ferdinand E. Marcos or “Andy” as his relatives, friends and the rest of Ilocanos would call him until he was in first grade.

Inside the Spartan dwelling are memorabilia, and age-old wooden furniture which depict the typical lifestyle of the Edralin family, all curated by Professor Erik Zerudo.

DepEd: Students can't be expelled for speaking Ilocano



The Saviour’s Christian Academy (SCA) in Laoag City, Ilocos Norte which moved to kick out 3 students for speaking in Ilocano is taking back its decision.

SCA lawyer Jaime Agtang said the school did not “expel” the students – Grade 8 students Kleinee Bautista, Carl Abadilla and Samuel Respicio – but merely advised them to look for another school following their supposed indiscretions.

The school has an English-speaking policy, which means students, parents and even teachers, are barred from speaking other languages – even Ilocano – inside the campus.

The school's move has affected the boys, aged 13. Both Kleinee and Carl were described to have been traumatized and depressed.

The news triggered several reactions, both from Filipino communities here and abroad. Social workers from abroad have also offered their counseling to the boys.

In an open letter, Aurelio Agcaoili and Raymund Llanes Liongson of the Nakem Conferences International and University of Hawaii in the USA told Shah: “Your act of ‘advising’ these students to look for another school is expulsion. Let us not go around the bush. You have done damage to the students, and you have done damage to the Ilokano language…You have done damage to the Ilokano communities all over the Philippines, and you have done damage to the Ilokano communities in the diaspora to which we belong.”

Vigan Dancing Fountain: A Mesmerizing Experience



YOU MUST BE A TRUE INSENSITIVE PERSON TO BE UNHAPPY seeing beautiful specs of lights and sprinkles of water dancing to the rhythm of music in midair. Still enchanted by the magical view of the Vigan Dancing Fountain and Laser Light show, the experience creeps anew even after a day of witnessing it.

And so the Ilocanos have another tourist spot to be proud of. Some may raise their eyebrows and say its ordinary but what’s interesting with the Vigan Dancing Fountain is the location itself – where could anyone find a modern and grandiose tourist spot in a UNESCO World Heritage City? It’s in Vigan alone.



Launched last April, the multi million project attracted a huge number of tourists, both in local and international.  The dancing fountain runs a pretty good 15-minute show. Good enough to make the audience drop their jaws and be in awe.

The spectacular show starts with a very thrilling digital drum roll of some sort welcoming the crowd to the heritage city. After a minute or so, the formerly dry Plaza Lagoon then transforms into a majestic arena of colorful laser lights and lively gush of water shooters beautifully dancing to the tune of folk songs like “Kalesa”and “Ilocana” and catchy pop music like “Gangnam Style” and “Moves Like Jagger”.
