Glossy Ibis Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte June 9, 2014 We drove 1300km during this trip. It is always gamble when going up North because of the time and the distance. But thankfully we saw our target bird. We had already seen this bird in New York. But of course it did not count in our Philippine List until we saw it here in the Philippines. The Ibis was a bit far. Maybe I should have used my 2x. But the light was fading so I just used my 1.4x tc.

Our great-great-great Grandfather! Valentin Diaz Katipunan Co-Founder and Treasurer (1849-1916) His father Geronimo's sister, Micaela Diaz, is the wife of Felix Duque, patriarch of our Duque branch- also from Paoay. "Due to the secrecy that shrouded the life of many of the Katipunan’s members, little is known of the early life Valentin Diaz. Records show that he was born on November 1, 1849 in Paoay, Ilocos Norte to Geronimo Diaz and Maria Villanueva. In 1857, his family moved to Tayug, Pangasinan. Again, nothing is known of the educational background of Diaz. But it can be presumed that he studied because in 1857, he became the gobernadorcillo of Tayug. Moreover, he and his family must have been influential, for the Spanish authorities awarded such positions only to members of important families. Exactly when and how he came to live in Tondo is not known. But when the reformist movement, the La Liga Filipina was formed by Dr. Jose Rizal and Andres Bonifacio at Ilaya St. in Tondo, Diaz was listed as one ...

Meet 22 year old Steve Raymundo from the province of Ilocos Norte in the Philippines. Steve Raymundo says he once got into a fight and was struck in the face with a rock. Ever since, he’s suffered from Sphenoid Aneurysm which causes him to lose large amounts of blood which flows heavily out through his nostrils. Blood loss is so significant, he often falls unconscious by the time bleeding stops. Seeing that continuous stream of blood and how much of a bucket has been filled with it, I’m not surprised. In medical terms, an aneurysm is a condition associated with damaged or weakened blood vessels. The spot where the blood vessel is damaged has the tendency to bulge and swell like a balloon. If the balloon ruptures, severe hemorrhage is usually unavoidable. The sphenoid bone is a butterfly shaped bone located deep within the skull, just beneath the pterion. *PLEASE SHARE* Admin Rose ♥ ♥ Help us for Grow . ❶ Like ✔ ★★★ ❷ Tag ✔ ★★★ ❸Share ✔★★★ For More Pictures And Videos ...

These are footages that the media NEVER showed to the people as proof of the senator's sincere effort for the betterment of our countrymen and NOT to steal the money of the people. He does not need that either for his personal use. The media were not even there when he inaugurated some of his PDAF projects that are already done.

Fact: Sand mining aggravates riverbank destabilization and Laoag City, San Nicolas, Sarrat, Piddig sits along a meandering river. What they do upstream will affect everything downstream. Alternative? Ilocos should learn from the IloIlo experience and develop the river as a product (not as a mining product but as a social and cultural product). Who wants an esplanade in Laoag, San Nicolas and Sarrat? Ideas? Black sand mining on shorelines? Nope. Sand dunes are natural barriers to future storm surges and tsunamis. Sand mining activities will surely increase Ilocos Norte's vulnerability to climate change impacts. Photos, facts and images extracted from the 2013 WWF and the Bank of the Philippine Islands Business Risk Assessment and the Management of Climate Change Impact presentation by Moncini Hinay during the Resilient Cities, Brighter Futures Forum-Workshop in Laoag.

The Iglesia Filipina Independiente was founded in 1902 by a former Roman Catholic priest from Ilocos Norte, Obispo Maximo Gregorio Aglipay and Obispo Maximo Isabelo de los Reyes. The first priests of what was later called Aglipayan Church were all former Roman Catholic priests who were disgruntled with the Spanish friars who often discriminated against the Filipino clergy by preventing their rise in the Roman Catholic hierarchy. The Filipino priests were moreover dismayed about friars grabbing land from poor farmers and the immoral conduct of friars who frequently sired children with Filipino women. Another contributing factor was the execution of priests, Padres Gomez, Burgos, and Zamora, who were suspected of fomenting revolutionary ideas amongst the Filipino people. The church's founding also coincided with the transition from Spanish to American rule and the rise of nationalism amongst Filipino revolutionaries. The Aglipayan Church rejected the divinity of Christ, the Holy Trinity, the celibacy of ...

Coast Guard Station Curimmao medevacs ailing seafarer of foreign cargo vessel in Ilocos Norte PCG: An ailing crew of a foreign cargo carrier in Currimao, Ilocos Norte was successfully evacuated by the personnel of Coast Guard Station (CGS) Currimao yesterday, 23 April. Chief Cook Alberto C. Lumiguen, 40 years old, was reportedly complaining of lower right abdominal pain while working onboard M/V Red Lotus. The incident was reported by Jeremy Balikas, Crewing Manager of Oro Philippines Shipping to CGS Currimao and requested for a medical evacuation for Lumiguen. Immediately, CGS Currimao coordinated with the master of the vessel to rendezvous at approximately 4 NM Northwest off Currimao, Ilocos Norte to evacuate the patient. Personnel of said sub-station together with the local agent of Oro Philippines Shipping proceeded to said area for the medevac. Lumiguen was then properly turned-over to the Quarantine Office at Barangay Maglaoi Norte in Currimao and was brought to Mariano Marcos Medical Center at Bata ...

Gov. Imee witnessed the installation of the new Filipino Cardinal of the Catholic Church, Orlando Quevedo, in Rome last Feb. 21. Pope Francis himself installed Cardinal Quevedo, a native of Sarrat, Ilocos Norte. She then welcomed the Cardinal when he visited Laoag and Sarrat on March 30, 2014.
The FIRST ILOCANO CARDINAL from the NORTH. Cardinal Quevedo to be feted with order of Lam-ang in Laoag March 23, 2014 1:12pm New cardinal and Cotabato Archbishop Orlando Quevedo may soon be conferred the Order of Lam-ang from Laoag City in Ilocos Norte, after the city council approved a resolution for it on early last week. The city council approved on second and final reading a resolution granting Quevedo the award, Bombo Radyo reported. Councilor Joseph Tamayo, the resolution's sponsor, said it was fitting that Quevedo, who hails from Laoag, be given the award because he brought honor to the Philippines. The Order of Lam-Ang is the highest award the city confers to anyone who gives it honor. It was not immediately clear when Quevedo will be conferred the award. Earlier this month, the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines said Quevedo was invited to spend the end of March visiting his roots in Ilocos Norte province. The CBCP cited a circular issued by Laoag Bishop Renato Mayugba where Quevedo ...

He said that Cardinal Quevedo will stay at the Plaza Del Norte upon his arrival in Laoag City. “Cardinal Quevedo is set to have a breakfast at the Holy Spirit Academy in Laoag City on March 30 before he officiates a mass at the Saint William Cathedral,” he said. After the mass, Cardinal Quevedo will visit the historic Santa Monica Church in his hometown in Sarrat, then, he will return to Plaza Del Norte straight to the Malacanang of the North in Paoay town for dinner.

“SEARCHING FOR THE MISSING MALAYSIAN JETLINER” This photo seems to suggest something to that effect but actually I was looking over the far stretches of the Bangui Bay in Ilocos Norte one cold Sunday afternoon in January. GOING BACK TO THE MISSING AIRLINER, things are now so frustrating that it is akin to looking for a 5-peso coin in an area the size of the whole of Metro Manila. However, the incident has brought out the best in men with dozens of nations pooling and pouring men and resources trying to pinpoint the location of the plane, and with the Australian Air Force allowing Chinese Airmen to fly in their airplanes at the Australian Air Force Base at Perth to join in the search. (Why only now, China?) AT THE SAME TIME, the incident affirmed the BULLYING CHARACTER of the Chinese when relatives of passengers on board the plane accused Malaysian authorities, right in Malaysian territory, of hiding something from them. Those Chinese must know that they are not the only nationality with kin and re ...
QUOTED FROM ANOTHER GROUP: VERY INFORMATIONAL : " TOURIST SPOTBONGBONG MARCOS' PROJECT AS GOVERNOR OF ILOCOS NORTE... ILOCOS WINDMILLS History In the 1990s former Governor Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. aggressively pursued the development of a power plant in Ilocos Norte due to the poor quality of power provided by the National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR). Ilocos Norte is located at the end of the power grid that comes from Bauang, La Union which is a province away from Ilocos Norte, making the province most vulnerable to power outages. Poor quality of power discouraged investments in the province. Coca-Cola Bottler’s Company, a company highly dependent on the power in the province, would switch from to INEC’s line from 5pm to 10pm because of the low voltage. Complaints from Marcos never improved NAPOCOR’s power distribution to the province. In 1996, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) conducted a wind resource analysis and mapping study. It concluded that various areas in the Philippines are a ...

25 HIV cases in Ilocos Norte. ABS-CBN TV Patrol News yesterday stated that there are now 25 cases of HIV infected in Ilocos Norte. The carriers were came from Laoag City, Batac City and the tranquil town of Pasuquin. The Provl Health Officer found the situation very alarming and will call an immediate consultation to different stakeholders to private, LGUs and NGOs to discuss and make urgent actions. Personally, the number is growing considering that those who are infected does not want to go for check-up for fear of disclosing their status and still, Ilocos Norte hospitals does not have any facility for medication. Those who are affected is afraid to reveal their status for fear of stigma, discrimnation and judgemental attitudes. The countdown of counting HIV infected persons is fastly tickling. The churches must act now on how to become competent and respond to the situation.

Some 50 students of the Ilocos Norte National High School (INNHS) became junior city officials for a day as part of the observance of the Pamulinawen festival. Laoag City Mayor Chevylle Farinas expressed the hope that a day of public office may contribute to students’ leadership development and to their personal growth. “I just hope that this one day in their lives may bring them learning and that we may give them the best example of leadership because what the youth can see from us is the standard truth for them,” Farinas said. Inna Christine Cabel, the junior city mayor, was on high spirits after assuming her seat. “This is dream come true for me. I felt so blessed to be mentored by our very own city mayor. I look forward to getting lots of wisdom from her as a leader,” Cabel ...

GALARPE ANCESTRY By Lean Galarpe Okey! here's a brief for the Galarpe's. Did you know that we have an Italian blood? Actually the story goes like this. There was a merchant ship that landed in Paoay, Ilocos Norte (paoay is near the sea) sometime in the 19th century. Among the ship's passengers was an Italian guy whose name was Galarpe. In the course of many days and months doing business in Paoay the young italian businessman met a beautiful Ilokana. They soon became friends and their friendship later culminated in marriage. The union bore fruits producing three healthy boys that were to become spreaders of the Galarpe seed all over the Philippines. Those 3 boys are our great great great grandfathers. One of them is Onofre Galarpe who stayed & lived in Paoay (we belong to him) the other 2 moved to Zambales, Bataan & the... last, there in Cagayan De Oro, Mindanao. You will know a Galarpe from his nose, matatangos (italian kasi) at mahaba ang nuo. When my father visited Italy, he tried to find out where we ...

Sitio Remedios is a private village resort situated in an 18,000 square meter of land in Barangay Victoria, Currimao, Ilocos Norte, facing the West Philippine Sea. It is a re-created Ilocano village typical of the mid-fifties, and stands as a reminder of a more genteel era. The houses and other buildings are made of vintage bricks and wood salvaged from mid-century structures mostly from the towns of Ilocos Norte. The lay-out is in a grid typical of Spanish times, the quadricula, respectful of spaces and ancient trees, amid which the structures are built. The houses were constructed by workers coming from the towns where the houses were sourced, guided by architect Rex Hofileña, who without any detailed architectural plans, coached them to surface their innate artistry and skill to build remembrances of their Ilocano past. The Sitio is dedicated to the patron saint of Currimao, St. Michael, the Archangel, and to the Lady of Good Voyage, o Nuestra Señora de los Remedios. Come Visit Currimao, Ilocos Norte

Organic farming advocate in Bacarra by Zac Sarian January 3, 2014 OFF-SEASON DRAGON FRUIT PRODUCTION TECHNIQUE — You will find dragon fruit almost everywhere you go in Ilocos Norte – in backyards and in commercial farms. At the farm of Edita Dacuycuy in Burgos town, about 10 hectares are devoted to the crop. What’s admirable about the lady dragon fruit grower is that she is very receptive to innovations. In fact, she has developed several food and wellness products out of different parts of the dragon fruit plant. She quips that if the coconut is the tree of life, then dragon fruit might as well be the vine of life. One of her latest innovations is lighting her plants from evening to 11 p.m. to induce the plants to flower during the short-day months. Photo shows the plants under the evening lighting regimen.

President Ferdinand Marcos A Thesis About the Marcos Truth I. Introduction Posted by rommelsibay on October 14, 2009 This thesis is on our great President Ferdinand Marcos. As i researched about this great man i realized that there were a lot of things that aren’t commonly known to the public that I thought must be shared. The topics i will tackle are quite comprehensive but nonetheless I hope that it will open some peoples eyes to see how much of a visionary President Marcos was. Archive for the ‘Part II’ Category II. History of a Visionary Posted by rommelsibay on October 14, 2009 Ferdinand Emmanuel Edralin Marcos was born on September 11, 1917 in Sarrat, Ilocos Norte to Mariano Marcos and Josefa Edralin naming their son after Ferdinand VII of Spain. The Marcos’ family is said to have been originally of Ilocano decent; Taguktok and traces their roots to Japanese and Chinese ancestry. As a student at the University of the Philippines, Ferdinand Marcos excelled in many things. He was a champion de ...

Biography | Resume In his 17 years of public service, Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr. has achieved for himself a distinguished record as a lawmaker, government official, and public administrator, most of which were accomplished away from the spotlight. Bongbong became drawn to the challenges of public service early on in life, having observed how both his parents devoted their lives to public service for more than two decades. At a very young age of 23, he was elected vice-governor of Ilocos Norte. The events that transpired after the EDSA Revolution in 1986 forced the Marcoses to leave the country in exile. While he was away, Bongbong's thoughts nevertheless remained focused on being able to serve his country, as he continued to study and develop his skills while aspiring to be able to come home to the Philippines soon. Braving the possibility of arrest from the new regime, Bongbong was the first among his family to return from exile in 1992. No sooner had he stepped back on Philippine soil than he took ...

They have three sons: Fernando Martin ("Borgy"), a commercial model and a DJ; Michael, a student at New York University; and Matthew Joseph, a student at Claremont McKenna College. And her stepson Tommy "TJ" Manotoc, whose also sportscaster and news anchor.[8] Marcos and Manotoc are now separated. Imee entered the world of politics as an Assemblyman from Ilocos Norte from June 30, 1984 up to March 25, 1986 together with Antonio V. Raquiza. Twelve years later, she returned to the world of politics. She ran as Congresswoman of the 2nd District of Ilocos Norte and won. She assumed office on June 30, 1998 and ended June 30, 2007. In the 2010 elections, she ran as Governor of Ilocos Norte against her cousin, Michael Marcos Keon, who was the governor during that time. She defeated her cousin by a landslide victory.

DENR declares dipterocarp forest in Ilocos Norte as wildlife critical habitat The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has declared a dipterocarp forest in Adams town in Ilocos Norte as a critical habitat for wildlife species. The forest, which has a total land area of 3,250 hectares (32.5 sq. km.), has been named Adams Wildlife Critical Habitat (AWCH) under DENR Administrative Order (DAO) No. 2013-XX signed by Secretary Ramon J.P. Paje. Paje said declaring the area as a wildlife critical habitat would help protect and conserve Ilocos Norte’s “last frontier of dipterocarp forest,” and all floral and faunal species living there. Dipterocarps refer to a family of hardwood, tropical trees like mahogany. The lush forests of the AWCH are known to be habitats of threatened species such as the Philippine falconet, Philippine hanging parakeet, Philippine brown deer, Philippine warty pig, as well as jade vines, giant tree ferns, and other dipterocarp trees. “The DAO will enjoin the parti ...

Monday, September 20, 2010 Marcos never left the building Thirty-eight years ago, Ferdinand Marcos stamped his foot on the dishonour roll of dangerous and invasive species of world dictators. With the proclamation of martial law on September 21, 1972, Marcos literally obliterated the freedoms the Filipinos fought hard to achieve from the 1896 Revolution against Spain to emancipation from the Japanese occupation after the Second World War. For almost two decades, Marcos would rule with an iron fist, putting to prisons those who criticized and opposed his regime. The People Power Revolution of 1986 deposed him, forcing him to sneak out to Hawaii, which was as far as he could enter the United States, his principal supporter who propped up his dictatorial and repressive regime. Marcos’ eldest daughter, Imee, now governor of Ilocos Norte, has called for a “thorough and objective study” of her father’s rule that would take into account the merits of the martial law period and not just its flaws. Imee br ...
Multilingual Gov. Imee Marcos: Best to Happen for Ilocos Norte in a Long While Aug 12 Governor Imee Marcos of Ilocos Norte who is multilingual (she speaks several languages including French, Spanish, Latin, Arabic, Portuguese, aside Ilocano, Waray, English, Tagalog and basic Mandarin and Japanese) is arguably one of the best pols to come along in a long while. Her magnetic personality and vibrant leadership suits Ilocos Norte so well, especially at a time when it needs to shake off politics-as-usual in order to awaken and energize ALL municipalities and their constituents and participate in her “Paspas dur-as” (speedy progress) program as initiated during her first term as governor. Her ability to attract business investors, her prodigious grasp of practically all facets of government and her strong leadership suits Ilocos Norte perfectly, especially at a time when the province is transitioning from an agricultural and rural landscape to a service-directed, diversifying, and urbanizing economy. The go ...

The tour which was assembled in front of the Provincial Capitol, was divided into two groups, Team A which took the South trail and Team B for North trail. Starting from La Tabacalera Ilocano Lifestyle Center, both teams were able to see the development that the Provincial Government has rendered to the area, from a tobacco factory to Ilocano lifestyle center which showcases Ilocano culture in cuisines, arts and literature, clothes and among others. It continued to Sirib Mile, the university belt in Laoag City which is being developed as a one-stop learning center where memorial busts of nine Ilocano heroes were also built to commemorate their greatness. Team A rode to Badoc particularly in Juan Luna Shr ...

As a response, Dr. Juanito B. Chua, CEO of the Ilocos Norte Hospital Management Council, said that one innovation they introduced was the adoption of the Dug Consignment System which accordingly is an effective tool in providing quality health services and essential drugs and medicines ...

(Admin) BADO-BADOC FESTIVAL Badoc Badoc is known to be one of the oldest towns in the province of Ilocos Norte and the birthplace of Juan Luna, the most famous Filipino Painter. The Bado-Badoc festival celebrates the rich history of this town named after a humble grass called bado badoc which was growing abundantly along its river banks. Not long after the the first mass in the town celebrated on June 24, 1572, the Spaniards settled and established a well structured town center. Badoc developed into an opulent and peaceful Spanish town manifested by the stone and brick structures scattered around the poblacion. All of the town’s blessings are attributed to the La Virgen Milagrosa de Badoc, the patroness of Ilocos Norte. Estimated to be 400 years old, the revered image of La Virgen Milagrosa is enshrined and venerated in the more than 200 year old imposing brick-and- stone baroque church. Now referred to as a God sent miracle, the image was found, together with a life size crucifix (enshrined in neighbor ...
Ilocos Norte pledges P1 million-aid to Yolanda victims Cherry Joy Discaya-Garma Laoag City, Nov. 27 (PIA) – The Ilocos Norte government has joined the growing list of donors to the Yolanda relief drive in the Visayas. The provincial government said it will send P1 million in aid to the typhoon victims in Tacloban City and to the province of Leyte, the home province of Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos. Governor Imee Marcos said the decision to send the financial aid was made after a budget deliberation with the Sangguniang Panlalawigan here. The budget will be taken jointly from the province’s calamity fund, contribution of various local government units (LGUs) and some non-government organizations. Aside from the financial aid, the provincial government is also conducting a relief drive of in-kind donations from food and non-food items. The provincial government believes that the victims need any help that the people can give for their fast recovery and rehabilitation. Meanwhile, Congresswoman Marcos, ...

Press Statement 28 October 2013 Senator Ferdinand “Bong-Bong” R. Marcos, Jr., who is currently in Ilocos Norte to cast his vote in the 2013 Barangay Elections and to participate in a previously scheduled committee hearing for the Committee on Agriculture, expressed shock and disbelief upon learning that his name has once again been dragged in the alleged release of PhP 24.25 million to an NGO named Masaganang Ani para sa Magsasaka Foundation, Inc. (MAMFI) for supposed livelihood projects in Davao del Sur and Davao Oriental in 20111. The article was based solely on an Affidavit of a certain Marina Sula, who stated that the alleged PhP 24.25 million transaction was the only transaction reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in 2011 by the said NGO. Senator Marcos immediately asked his office to look into this new revelation and per the initial investigation conducted by his office, it was revealed that: • There is no document or record pertain ...
