Some updates from BBs most recent posts:

The Baler movie crew is currently in town to shoot some scenes for the movie. A crew member posted somewhere in the comments asking us Balerians not to make their work complicated by NOT visiting the set. In other words – “Don’t bother us folks!!”. Let’s grant them their wishes and ignore them like we usually do when famous people visit our place. For your info, the filming of the movie is almost over. They will only be here for two days to shoot some scenes.

How’s this picture for geographical accuracy – Jericho and Anne dating by the beach, with a beautiful view of a sunset over the bay. If you’re from Baler, you’ll immediately notice there’s something wrong.


Regarding my post about Jonathan Urbano’s performance at Araneta Coliseum and my remark that he’s probably the only Balerian to perform in the venue, a commenter volunteered an info that a certain Rochelle Dela Cruz a member of the FEU Chorale also performed at the place this Ocober. She also performed with the choir on TV. Let’s give Rochelle a standing ovation for her achievement.

By the way, here’s Jonathan performing Sana’y Wala Nang Wakas. The video suddenly reminded me of Ka Senyong.


And an update on Joyce Molina’s bid to be the first Turismo Pilipino winner. She didn’t make it, but she’s still our Ms. Baler. Sherylee Sustiguer, a 5′7″ beauty from Norther Samar bagged the first ever Miss Turismo Pilipina title. Read the news here. And view the photos here.

And finally, Aurorans can now boast that Aurora Province is the best tourist destination in North Luzon. That’s after Aurora won the Best Destination award in the recently concluded North Philippines Tourism and Travel Expo. Pictures from the event coming soon.

  1. Anung OA sa sinabi ni Kid? Tutuu namang nasikat ang araw sa silangan (Pacific Ocean=Sabang beach) at nalubug sa bunduk (Sierra Madre Mountains). De ka taga Aurora anu? Nakatabsung ka na baga sa Sabang sa may Labasin?
