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.

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 Tabuk City, Kalinga, Philippines

Tabuk was once called the “Valley of Gamonangs”, the Kalinga tribe who had dominated Northern Kalinga some centuries ago, as written by one of the early Spanish Missionaries. They inhabited the vast valleys and thickly forested plains between the Chico and Cagayan Rivers and their legendary feats of as warriors are chanted in the Kalinga Ullalim. As per historical accounts they repulsed every effort of the Spaniards to lay their claims in the alley. Kalinga partly owes the legacy to them that it was never subjugated by any foreign domination.

With the passage of time the Gammonangs were eventually pushed back and they moved to higher ground. The harshness of mountain living further marginalized them and their descendants are believed to be along the South-Eastern hills bordering the provinces of Isabela and MT. provinces, Since then the area become awilderness valley that became abode to wild game such as deer, hogs, horses, and other animal species that are now extinct in the alley .

Shortly after the First Wordl War Governor Walter Hale popularly known as Sapao sent volunteer settlers from Tobog and Lubuagan.The original Lubuagan settlers did not make it due to malaria and the tobog settlers led by Gullit father of Kapitan Baac Gullit and grandfather of Arsenio Baac started inhabiting the plains of Laya and were later on joined by other tobog settlers.

Repopulation of the place began sometime shortly before the First World War. Then Lieutenant Governor Walter F. Hale sent six volunteer pioneers to re-inhabit the place. Three of these settlers came from sitio Tobog while three others were selected from Lubuagan who failed after suffering from malaria. That left only the settlers from Tobog wo started tilling the soil at Laya under the leadership of Gullit, father of the late Captain Baac Gullit and grandfather of Arsenio Baac. Their relatives from tobog later joined these first settlers.

Between 1922 and 1923, the second of settlers came from Bontoc, during the time of John C. Early, well known provincial Governor and Division Superintendent of Schools of the old mountain Province. Twenty-five homesteaders recruited from Samuki, Bontoc decided to settle and formed the Bontoc colony at aplace now as Barangay Bantay. They suffered malaria but they held on and the place became a thriving Bontoc Village.

With an effort to push forward the colonization of the area, despite the appalling mortality of the Bontoc colony, the provincial government at Bontoc tried another colony at Tuga. Volunteers from Cervantes, Ilocos sur were brought in. they were supplied with the necessary farm tools including mosquito nets and kitchen utensils. A certain Allo Caparas, a graduate of the Constabulary Academy of Baguio, now Philippine Military Academy was assigned to manage the colony. A nurse graduate from the Baguio Hospital, Vicente Buslig from Apayao was sent to look after the health of these settlers.

Inspired by their success in the settlement at Tuga, The Cervantes settlers crossed the Chico River eastward, right into the heart of the fertile valley. Fructoso Gallema and Inocencio Candelaria headed the group. They found a living spring with fresh potable water. They settled near this spring and were later joined by settlers from Sigay, Ilocos Sur, led by Leon Bangisan and Pedro Balacang.

Thereafter, other pioneers came in headed by Francisco Viloria who settled in Bulanao. Dionisio Falgui brought in a group of Ilocanos from La Union and settled in Appas, who was followed by Lauro Arizala from Zambales. Abraham Omao from Lubuagan chose to settle in Bulanao. Their harvests were abundant; the hills offered them plenty of venison and pork from the wild hogs. The creeks were full of fishes, crabs and lobsters. However, there were no roads and no markets for these products. Malaria casualties depleted their number, but the pioneers held on.

The dawn of the new era for Tabuk was more than assured with the coming of the Bureau of Lands Survey Party No. 3-A in the early 1930’s. The party scanned the sprawling valley and found Tabuk to contain a series of plains from Laya to Balong on the frist valley, Ipil and Bulanao on the eastern plateau. Further eastward across the hills, they saw another rich valley now known as Liwan or Babalag, Rizal. Then southward, there was another plateau of Callagdao and Southwest of Agbannwag. The execution of the government subdivision of Tabuk plains had accelerated the development of Tabuk. Today, the names of the dedicated surveyors, Mr. Edralin, Mr. Ela, and Mr. Antonio Pizarro are always well remembered by the settlers who came in waves after waves to establish their homes in this great valley.

The name of Tabuk evolved from the word “TOBOG”, the name of a living stream with cool and fresh water flowing from Sitio Paligatto in Barangay Balawag down to the Chico River. The areas traversed by this stream were also called TOBOG.

Tabuk came by mistaking letter G for C (Tobog to Toboc) and letter A for letter O, thus Taboc. Then finally in later years, they preferred the spelling from the letters OC to letters UK to form the present T A B U K.

Tabuk is now a fifth class city with an income of P110, 414,133.00 in 2007. It is prominently considered as the rice granary of the Cordillera due mainly of agriculture getting the largest area from the pie of which the bulk of production is on rice where it supplies other places. The municipality has also produced outstanding farmers at the national level for the last two decades.

The city is also the site of the proposed Regional Agro-Industrial Center which aims to further develop the city and make it the agro-industrial center of the region. The city is likewise working to become the only component city of the Cordillera in the near future. (source of article verbatim from:

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 Tabuk City, Kalinga, 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.

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.
