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 Tangalan, Aklan, Philippines

source of article: verbatim LGU of Tangalan, Aklan

The descendants of Datu Bangkaya in barangay Afga, a seaside barangay facing the sea of Sibuyan, established Tangalan in the early part of 16th century. Because of the continuous raid and furious behavior of the non-Christians (Moro) pirates, the native of the said barangay transferred their place to another inland location at sitio Nagub-an of Barangay Tagas.

After the termination of the Spanish rule in the country and the Americans took the reign of control all over the Philippines, the town of Makato and Tangalan was fused into one municipality. But the people of Tangalan did not relish the set-up of being merged and/or fused with Makato, and silently accepted the bitter and unhappy situation, but worked a way out of the dilemma. It was a true love for freedom and self-government that enlightened and fired a fervent desire of the leaders and the people of Tangalan to wage a struggle for separation of the town of Tangalan from Makato.

The separation of the Municipal government of Tangalan from Makato passed so many obstacles and hard struggle. The legal aspect had been filed, but due to political intrigues of the other politicians, the attempt was failure. The people of Tangalan firmly believed that the unity achieved their cherished dream, so that their leaders and its people joined and acted together and found support from the late Congressman Jose M. Reyes. Republic Act No. 285 was passed and was signed into law and on July 31, 1948, the banner of independence was hosted in the municipality of Tangalan.

Tangalan got its name from the two incidents during the Spanish regime. It has been told that when the Spanish sailboat, manned and piloted by a Tagalog, broke its rudder and was brought ashore for repair, the native asked the captain of the boat, what was the cause of their being ashore, and the captain answered “natanggalan” meaning displaced, referring to the detached rudder of the boat. Another incident happened, when a Spanish officer passed by the shore and found trees growing with distinctive foliage nearby and asked the native, and the native answered, “Tanggal,” the name of the tree in local dialect. The name of the town was coined from these two incidents.

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.

Economy of Tangalan, Aklan, Philippines

DILG through its Local Government Academy (LGA) has spearheaded an anti-red tape advocacy program dubbed Project CURE which stands for Comprehensive and Unified Response to Eliminate Red-Tape in LGU.

The recently initiated anti-red tape program is a response to the challenge of efficient and effective public service, as stated in the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007.

Thus, LGUs are enjoined in coming up with a Citizens’ Charter since LGUs are the crucial providers of frontline services to the public from urban areas down to

the remotest communities of the country.

The Citizens’ Charter is defined in the implementing rules of RA 9485 as “an official document, a service standard, or a pledge, that communicates, in simple

terms, information on the service provided by the government to its citizens. It describes the step-by-step procedures for availing a particular service, and the guaranteed performance level that they may expect for that service”.

This information is complemented by list of requirements a customer must comply to facilitate service delivery.

The Tangalan Citizens’ Charter is the newest publication tool developed by the Local Government to empower its citizenry by promoting transparency and accountability in service delivery. It is designed to promote good governance by operationalizing its four elements namely: accountability, participation, predictability and transparency.

It is also considered as an instrument through which the quality of public service can be improved by letting the people know the mandate of the government office concerned, how one can get in touch with its officials, what to expect by way of services and how to seek remedy if something goes wrong.

Designed for dissemination and publication at billboards in strategic areas of the municipality, the charter has catalogued a total of 72 frontline services for this first edition.

Natural Resources of Tangalan, Aklan, 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.

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.

Tourists Attractions of Tangalan, Aklan, Philippines

source:panay.org/tangalan verbatim
  • St. John Nepomucene Parish Church – For almost twenty-eight years men, women, and children carried limestone and coral blocks on their heads and shoulders from the quarries of Barangay Afga to the town proper from sunrise to sunset in a great polo (forced labor). Being finished in 1889 and still intact today the century old church is one of the oldest in the province, featuring limestone and coral walls.
  • Afga Wave-Rock Formation – The wave-rock formation is a unique environmental phenomenon produced by wave action on a rocky shore. It is told that the wave-rock formation served as the quarry site for the distinct limestone and coral walls of the St. John Nepomucene Parish Church. It is a detrital type of sedimentary rock stratified in the colors yellow, grey, black, and reddish-brown. Dwarf mangroves have found a home amongst the numerous cracks and crevices.
  • Jawili Beach – The white sands and crystal clear waters of Jawili Beach are an excellent location for a weekend getaway or a relaxing vacation. Jawili Beach provides Boracay like scenery with the slow place and tranquility of a small fishing village. Fishing boats line the beach as the majority of the local community still rely on the sea for their livelihood. Jawili Beach is an ideal destination for sea related recreation, picnics, conferences, conventions, holiday outings, and vacations.
  • Jawili Falls – The splendor of Jawili Falls is only a five to ten minute walk from Jawili Beach. The seven basins have been uniquely arranges by centuries of water flow. Crystal clear water cascades from basin to basin as if rolling down a giant stairwell. The falls are surrounded by a pristine forest that serves as a wildlife sanctuary for endemic flora and fauna. Tracing the tributaries of the falls into the heart of the forest is a challenging yet rewarding adventure.
  • Tangalan Marine Sanctuary - The 375ha Marine Sanctuary was established in 2003 within the municipal waters at Pungtod Reef. Pungtod Reef is approximately 150ha consisting of patch reefs and ranging in depth from 8 to over 30m. Live coral coverage and fish density have been increasing since the sanctuary was implemented. The sanctuary hosts numerous species of hard and soft corals, sponges, shells, sea stars, sea cucumbers, oysters, and lobsters. There are a variety of colorful fish as well, including Butterflyfish, Angelfish, Damselfish, Parrotfish, *Surgeonfish, Scorpionfish, and Sweetlips among others. There are also many species targeted for fishing, such as Fusilers, Groupers, Jacks, Snappers, and Emperor Breams. Endangered sea snakes and sea turtles are also found within the sanctuary, as well as dolphins and stingrays. The sanctuary is currently closed to SCUBA diving and snorkeling.
  • Coral Garden - The Coral Gardening and Reef Rehabilitation Project is a 10 ha area inside the Marine Sanctuary where 49 cross-bar pyramid type artificial reefs were deployed in 2003 in a cooperative effort of the LGU-Tangalan and DA-BFAR. The goal of the project is to rehabilitate an area that was previously decimated by dynamite and cyanide fishing. The artificial reefs, by increasing coral cover and providing additi0nal shelter for juvenile fishes, will in turn increase the catch of municipal fisherfolk. Numerous species of hard and soft corals can be observed growing on the artificial reefs after only 2 years. Sea stars, feather stars, tunicates, and oysters have also taken advantage of the additional habitat provided by the artificial reefs. Fish are plentiful within the Coral Garden as they utilize the shelter provided by the artificial reefs. The artificial reefs consist of 16 concrete bars stacked in a pyramid to maximize the amount of surface area exposed to sunlight. One of the artificial reefs, the “mother” artificial reef, is made up of 48 concrete bars. The LGU is currently developing an ecotourism project in which SCUBA divers will be able to purchase a growing coral and “plant” it on an artificial reefs, thereby contributing to the rehabilitation of coastal resources in the Philippines. The Coral Garden is scheduled to open for SCUBA diving in May 2006.
