  1. Casiguran airport to be upgraded:

    INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN THE AREA OF SIERRA MADRE and TYPHOON BELT?! Woooowww really a good plan ive ever heard in Aurora Province. First Fruit basket of Luzon next Economic Zone now International Airport? Whats the next big plan?…. Create a Rocket Launch Pad to send Balerians to the Moon?

    Aurora is still under Colonial Rule of the Few Elite Conyos…..

    Its so sad and disappointing to read all this rubbish plans that never really materialized…. Paayus nyu nga muna ang BALER HOSPITAL!!!

  2. More on politics or some personal matters,”maybe”. One thing is for sure. It’s better than nothing at all. Let’s move on. What did you do or have you at least suggested something for the improvement of our province? Wag mu sanang mamasamain ang pag tatanung ko ano? Do i hate them? You do not know what kind of ordeals our family had because of these shitty system, but somehow, anyhow….freaking shit i must admit that it’s I must also be able to see and pick the “good one” and reject the “bad one”. What is wrong if there are plans? It’s a dream and for every body it’s “FREE”. (the best).

  3. kailan kaya tayo magkakaroon ng isang magandang provincial hospital?panahon pa ni donya maria aurora quezon ng maipagawa ito.konti pa ang tao sa aurora.sana magising naman ang namumuno sa ating lalawigan, sa bagay publik bath room ay talagang wala sa aplaya, ospital pa kaya…

  4. Panabong, sa pagkakaalam ku ay sisimul-an na ang bagong ospital sa Oktober 2009, malapit na iyun.. kaya nga fast track yun pagprocess ng transer ng titulo ay para mapagawa na agad….ay intayin n at malapit na iyun…

  6. mabuti naman po at mababagu na pala ang aurora memorial. nagsitanda na ta ang mga doctor diyan, samano, limpin, chua – wala pa ring bagong ospital.

    magandang araw po dr. chua at dr. limpin at pati na iyung mga nakasama namin dati diyan sa memorial nila bong, betty, mameng at miss guerrero – nars na taga casiguran. napakababait po ng mga taga baler na tumangkilik sa amin ng ilang buan diyan.
