The Philippines has been a "decentralized" form of government since 1991, contrary to what most Filipinos think. Ever since the creation of Republic Act 7160, each LGU is responsible for its own domain. Even the smallest LGU the barangay creates its own Budget. It is not dependent on handouts from the city, municipality or province. "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.

Allows us to live Long and Prosper!

We are one with Flora. Throughout time humans and the animal kingdom have relied on the healing power of herbs. We used them in several ways: we have ingested them, rubbed them on our bodies, bathed in them, even used them in our cooking to flavor our foods.

Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?


There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

History of Iriga City, Province of Camarines Sur, Philippines

The official seal of the city tells the story about Iriga.


The history of Iriga – from its small beginning as a barrio or “ visita” of its mother town of Nabua to the present – is depicted in the lower portion of the seal . Nabua is symbolized by the “BUA” (meaning coconut bud, from which the town derives its name) which is shown exposed in the half-open coconut at the right hand side of the bottom of the seal. Bua (Na-bua) was a flourishing native settlement when the Spaniards arrived there. This is depicted by the full-grown coconut tree. The two smaller trees stands for Bato and Iriga, then the small dependencies of Nabua. The coconut has been chosen to symbolize the three towns because it is the basic agricultural product of the localities.

The town of Bua was located in low, marshy terrain and was easily flooded during the rainy season. The Bua townsfolk, therefore referred to the highland settlement close to Sumagang mountain (now simply known as Mt. Iriga or Mt. Asog ) as “I-RAGA” (from the Bua dialect meaning “ where there is land”- the prefix ”I” meaning possession and is roughly equivalent to the English phrase “there is ” or “it has”). “Raga” in the dialect means ”land” or “soil ”hence, “ I-RAGA” has been explained by historians as “ where soil obtainable for filling Bua’s marshland”. Some historians interpret the phrase “ where the land is plentiful and the settlers are big land-owners”.

As evangelization by the Franciscan friars progressed, population spread out and the barrio established by the settlers at the foot of the Sumagang mountain developed in size and health. This barrio called “Iriga” by the Spaniards. The term is a corruption of the native “I-raga”.

The progress of the present City of Iriga is symbolized by the towering granite obelisk in the center of the inscription. The obelisk, a monument to the hardworking settlers of I-raga, stands on the man-made stone foundation bearing the year 1578, the year when the settlement was established as a barrio of Nabua. Over this stone foundation, the people built a town which the Spanish authorities recognized as such in 1683. This year (1683) in effect, marks the second milestone in the history of the city. For nearly three centuries thereafter, the town grew in area as well as in wealth and density of population. 1968, marks the third significant milestone in its history: The President of the Philippines(Ferdinand E. Marcos), on July 8, 1968, signed into law the City Charter (RA No. 5261) which granted Iriga its independence from the province of Camarines Sur. The historic event marks the culmination of the town people’s long struggle for recognition. This is symbolized by the towering obelisk which rises from the bottom to the top of the center of the seal with the year 1968 crowning its top.


The background of the basic design of the seal is the Sumagang mountain (or Mt. Iriga) at the foot of which the city is located. Mt. Iriga has always been and will always be the most dominant landmark of the city.

The characteristic feature of the mountain and hills which dot the city is depicted on the right hand side of the bottom of the seal. The hills appear eroded or eaten away to show that it was from these highlands that Nabua, at first, and the whole region later, obtained soil for filling the lowlands. In fact, much of the soil used by the railroad company (PNR) for building its tracks when it extended its line to Albay came from these hills. The lowlands on which the mother town of Nabua is located is also shown on the left hand side of the seal.


On right hand side of the obelisk, at the upper portion of the seal, are thirty-five stars which stand for the original thirty-five barrios which compose the town of Iriga at the time of its erection into a city. The blue field on which the stars are shown stands for hope for a greater and more prosperous city which the people of Iriga have.

At the left hand side are four crosses which stand for the four parishes into which the barrios are grouped together in the church’s ecclesiastical administration of the town. The red field where the four crosses are shown stands for the blood and the sacrifices of Iriga’s forebears who sacrificed their lives under the yoke of foreign colonization and oppression.

Finally, a scroll which encircles the seal, dividing it into upper and lower halves, bears the inscription: I-RAGA SA SUMAGANG”. This was how the settlers of Nabua referred to the present site of the city and means “there is land in Sumagang”. The inscription is intended to perpetuate for generations to come the vocables "I-RAGA”, the original name of Iriga, and “Sumagang”, (meaning “sunrise”) the native name of its mountains. The gold of the scroll stands for the spiritual and material wealth of the people of Iriga.


The shield of the escutcheon is Malayan in contour. It is a departure from the Western shields usually adopted by other Philippine cities. This is to show and to remind the people of Iriga of our autochthonous Malayan racial stock and cultural background.

Barangay's power and authority: A must read for all barangay officials


This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

Barangay anim 4500.gif
A Barangay Clearance is NEEDED in order to get a Business License.
So why is the barangay name not in most business addresses?
Ask your Barangay Captain/Chairman to create a Resolution to make it mandatory to put the barangay name in all Business addresses.
Every Government Unit in the Philippines is within a Barangay. The municipal hall, city hall, the provincial capitol building, and even the Malacañang Palace where the president resides is within a Barangay.

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 or any infrastructure need to be built, improved or repaired, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and present it to 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."

Each city or municipality is represented by the "barangay association or federation". The elected president of the Association of Barangay Council and the President of Kabataan (SK) association each have a seat in the City/Municipality council. Their powers are the same and equal to the elected city/municipality councilors. They are there to help lobby the demands of the barangays. They are not there just to collect a big salary and rub elbows with the regular elected city/municipality council, but to also represent the needs of the barangays.
The duties of the barangay officials are specifically written in Chapter III(Punong Barangay) and Chapter IV (The Sangguniang Barangay). Read it..

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, the "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove or suspend any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Elected public officials can't be suspended by the DILG or the office of the president unless an official complaint has been filed, there must be proof and there must be due process. Republic Act 7160 chapter 4, Section 60. Information is power. Be informed. Do not be intimidated by the president, senator, congressman, governor, mayor, vice-mayor, or councilors. Do your job.

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.

If the power lines are sagging, don't go to the power company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the power company.
If the water lines are busted, don't wait for the water company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the water company.
If the potholes in the road are not fixed, don't wait for the The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the DPWH.
Are you beginning to get the point?

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. Stop blaming others.

  • 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 IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.
  • 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. Even the candidate for president. But after the election they ignore 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 Islam is financed by the Philippine government. 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". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

Natural Resources of Iriga City, Camarines Sur, Philippines

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.

Mt. Iriga

Rising some 4,823 feet above sea level (1,196 meters), Mt. Iriga is a challenging climb and offers a panoramic view of the entire Bicol River basin area. A crater and gully was formed during the mountain's last recorded eruption on January 4, 1614. The crater drops to some 500 feet deep from the summit. It's cold surrounding makes it a fitting habitat for wild berries and a local specie of pine called agoho, which abundantly grow in the area. Regular mountain climbing activities are held yearly with participants coming from Iriga City, its neighboring towns and from as many parts of the country. It is the home of different endemic species, especially "Rafflesia Irigaense', one of the smallest species of Rafflesia, famous for it's smell and size.

Kaya Iloilo sweeps Group B in Copa '21

MANILA – Kaya Iloilo pipped Mendiola with a 6-0 beating on Wednesday night to complete a sweep of Group B action in the Copa Paulino Alcantara at the PFF National Training Centre in Carmona.

A Jovin Bedic brace in the first half set the tone for the inaugural tournament champ even as the club netted three goals in each of the two halves to seal the top seed in its group ahead of the semifinals next week.

Bedic capitalized on an erroneous Mendiola attempt to keep the ball out of his reach and quickly raced inside the penalty box to open the scoring for Kaya Iloilo in the 11th minute.
