Ms. Jojie Alegre-Aguila was one of the first Balerians who discovered this website in its early incarnation. She’s related to the Amazona and Rivera families of Baler. From her post at Barangay Batangbaler: “I was born in Baler but didn’t exactly grow up there. My parents moved from north to south of the Philippines due to my father’s job in the government. Born not bred but a true-blue Batang Baler just the same…”

She maintains a blog called Xypotecka which is about “stories of my adventures, exploits and observations about life, travel and people.” One post, a tribute to his father who recently passed away titled “What I Learned From My Father” , is a must read.

Punta na!
