Buenavista, Zamboanga City, Philippines
Buenavista is adjacent to the barangay of Curuan. It has rolling hills and savannas and it borders the sea. From the top of the buenavista hill you can see the fantastic view of the ocean. Buena is the Spanish word for Good or Great and Vista is the word for View. Someone stood on top of that hill and said "que BuenaVista!!". Hence the name.

Long time ago, during the Spanish era, in the year 1891, some Muslims had already occupied the place near the seashore and just beside it is a large area of mangroves full of big trees namely, bakhawan, pagotpot, and bungalou. Half kilometers from the said place was a hilly place, which was full of trees, the place where the natives would enjoy hunting wild animals. At the top site, several beautiful wild things could be seen such as the very clear seas, islands, mangroves, wildlife such as trees, flowers and animals.
One day, a troop of Spanish army passed by the place. They enjoyed looking around while the natives of the place were hiding in a big trunk of tress. One of the Spanish army who admired the beauty of what he had seen exclaimed, “Buenavista”, meaning good and beautiful sight. When the natives heard what they said they thought that the name of that place was “Buenavista”.
In 1958, Buenavista was enacted as one of the Barangays of Zamboanga City. It is a Barangay 54 kilometers away from the city proper and composed of seven (7) puroks. Article from the Buenavista LGU

This is the.
The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress, not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.
When roads need to be built or any infrastructure within the barangay is needed, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and demand for it from the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."
Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Information is power. Be informed.
The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.
The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.
Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible.
- BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
- The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
- The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
- Imperial Manila does not exist anymore. Budgetary planning has been .
- DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. After the election they forget you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.
Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.
- Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of . Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state".
From 1962 upto date...there was really no remarkable business established in the Barangay,although it is highly Agricultural in Food production. both "KAINGIN and LOW-LAND farming is the major source of basefood for "PALAY and CORN" with BANANNA and CASSAVA coming in as alternate food.I can recall when We go to our FARM(PASTO) and watch our FATHER (HJI LATIF BAKIL)riding his HORSE how He HEARDED/PASTURED 100 plus CATTLEs and CARABAOS and ALSO HUNDREDS of GOATs.TODAY its only a GLIMPSE... AGRICULTURE is the BEST EVER BUSINESS for BUENAVISTA...maybe sooner those days when GOATS and Chickens with "MALAGKIT" and eggs were given to government officials as a GIFT of GRATITUDE for rendering PUBLIC SERVICES in the Barangay,which is NEVER We HEARD OF...COME to BUENAVISTA,,if you're an ENVIRONMENTALIST og\r an AGRICUKTURIST...there is also SEAWEEDS and other FISHERY Products that you can IMPROVE and INVEST...and the MOST BEAUTIFUL SCENE...BUNTUD...were we SLID with COCONUT SLEDGE"LURANG" from the TOP HILL down to the brook "SAPA" and SWIM....it was 1960s.

- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
