Driving is more fun in Marinduque, too. A 'motoring paradise'

Part of our celebration of Sentenaryo ng "Araw ng Marinduque" is the holding in this island-province of the 4x4 Jeep Club Philippines Jamboree from February 22-24, 2020.

Marinduque. Known for the Moriones Holy Week ritual with the colorfully-garbed moryon or Roman soldiers who crucified Jesus Christ, this is a motoring paradise for its gorgeous highways and low vehicle density. With only a 150-km circumferential road, you can have more time to devote to the sights and sounds or even redo the island’s circumnavigation.

Marinduque can be reached by air or by boat via Lucena City.

Exciting road trips for 2020
By Bernard L SupetranPhilippine 
Daily InquirerJanuary 19,2020

Every New Year brings new challenges and bucket lists of things to do or places to go for the weekend warriors. With new exciting car models from the popular brands and relatively unexplored destinations, 2020 will be another banner year to hit the roads less traveled and discover why “Driving is more fun in the Philippines.”

Here are some routes worth exploring on wheels across our enchanting chain of islands.

Palawan. Named time and again as the world’s best island by prestigious global publications, this archipelago boasts of owning the “every island an adventure” tag and rightfully so. With 1,780 islands and islets and a road network of about 1,000km, there is so much to discover here, aside from the famous St. Paul Underground River in the capital city of Puerto Princesa. 

The city, one of the country’s biggest, is in itself a consummate trip with its scenic winding roads hugging the coastline. With a vast land area, its nearest town to the north and the south would take more than an hour to reach. Puerto Princesa also has a bevy of recreational spots on top of its usual beach destinations, which are sometimes affected by inclement weather.

Beyond the city, motor to the newest hotspot of San Vicente, a 14-km long master-planned beachfront colony, and up to the northern most town of El Nido. Roll-on, roll-off (Ro-Ro) ferries will be put in place to connect it to the equally-exciting island of Busuanga and Coron town.

Down south, you can drive to Narra and Quezon towns, all the way down to Brooke’s Point where a Ro-Ro service is being eyed to connect it to the Malaysian state of Sabah.
  
Silliman University Portal

Negros. This huge island is composed of the Oriental and Occidental provinces, and is among the most enticing drive destinations because of its blend of the mountains and sea. Dumaguete, the “City of Gentle People”, is an ideal entry point because of its blend of the old and the new.

Its most popular road is Rizal Boulevard where the national hero made a stopover en route to his exile to Dapitan. This bayside promenade has evolved into a nocturnal colony dotted by cafés, watering holes, hotels and restaurants which offer cool sea breeze and sunrise view. A must see is the iconic Silliman University, with its iconic American-era Siliman Hall and Museum, the Romanesque-style Church and its ampitheater, and its twin portal gates along the tree-lined avenue. 

Named as among the best retirement places, Dumaguete has also become a sports tourism haven for its promotion of physical fitness programs.

Circumnavigate Negros and swing by the cities of Bais, San Carlos, Escalante, Sipalay, Victorias, La Carlota, and Silay, which have interesting pit stops before winding up in Bacolod, the capital of the Occidental province. Along the coastal areas, go beach bumming and engage in various water sports, most notably scuba diving. 
 
Mountaintop view of Sarangani Bay from Maasim

Sarangani. Don’t let reports of earthquakes scare you from discovering this well-kept secret which blends adventure and culture. Reachable via Gen. Santos City or Davao on a three-hour panoramic journey, this province embraces Sarangani Bay which has pockets of powdery sand and marine sanctuaries on its 200-km coast. Roads are well-paved, and peace and order situation is remarkable which make driving a pleasant experience.

Take adventure to the next level literally and try paragliding in the mountains of Maasim for a breath-taking view of the bay. Not to be missed is an interaction with Blaan, Tboli or Tagakaolo indigenous peoples which are known for their sought-after exquisite dyed handwoven fibers. 

A highland spot worth-driving is the 816-meter high Kalon-Barak Skyline Ridge in Malungon which has a commanding view of Mt. Apo, Mt. Matutum, the Sarangani Bay and Davao Gulf.

Camarines Norte. Declared as the country’s “zigzag capital”, this is among the best places to test new SUVs and four-wheel drives. With some 100km of twists and turns in the midst of tropical rainforests, this Bicol province region has been under the radar for decades until it surprised everyone with the Calaguas islands group which was named as the top tourism gem in an online poll.

Feast on succulent seafood and spicy dishes, tan on the alluring unspoilt Pacific side beaches, or frolic on the icy waterfalls and river resorts. CamNorte is marking its centennial this year and will be filled 100 festive events that will entice you to visit.

Marinduque can be reached by air or by boat via Lucena City.

Whew! So many roads, so little time.

Centennial Queen candidates at the capitol building

BOAC, Marinduque – 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of Marinduque as a province of the Philippines. The centennial celebration is slated for Feb. 16-22 this year featuring a historical parade, cultural heritage shows, film festival, street dance competition, trade fair, culinary arts contest, off-road jeep jamboree, unveiling of Centennial monument and Bantayog Wika monument in recognition of Tagalog-Marinduque and the Gawad Marinduque awards night. Other activities include installation of a historical marker at Boac Cathedral as Important Cultural Property and the search for Centennial Queen.

Governor Presbitero Velasco led the 100-day centennial countdown on Nov. 14 at the provincial capitol grounds in this capital town. On centennial week, the National Museum of the Philippines will open a new maritime archaeology collection at its satellite museum near Boac’s municipal hall, along with the launch of Marinduque’s centennial commemorative stamp by the Philippine Postal Corp.

Marinduque is the geographical center of the country

Agriculture propels the economy of this heart-shaped island province at the geographical center of the country. Rice, coconut, handicrafts, and fishing are its main industries. Tourism is fast becoming an important revenue source, especially during the Moriones Festival when the Lenten season peaks in the summer. During the 40-day Lent, centennial organizers are set to stage weekly activities together with various cultural groups as Holy Week approaches with spirituality and renewal as the underlying theme. 

Mining contributed significantly to the provincial coffers starting from the late 1960s. But the 1996 Marcopper environmental disaster at the minesite in Barangay Hinapulan abruptly halted a once thriving industry. Tragedy struck when the drainage tunnels of Canadian mining firm Marcopper’s open pit ruptured and spilled a huge amount of toxic waste that contaminated the Boac River, flooded adjacent villages, killed marine life, and affected the health of surrounding communities.

Almost a hundred years after its founding, Marinduque is still a fourth-class province in terms of income according to the Philippine Statistics Authority’s 2018 Standard Geographic Code. Among its six municipalities, only Boac and Santa Cruz are classified as first-class, while three others (Gasan, Mogpog, Torrijos) are considered third-class and Buenavista is rated fourth-class. - by J Albert Gamboa, Manila Bulletin with updates by this blogger.

Leo Logdat wins in Aliw Awards 2019 on Dec 17, rushes for successful Marinduque Christmas Concert on the 18th


Joseleo Logdat proudy shows his Aliw Awards trophy.
On 17 December Joseleo "Leo" Logdat was at the elegant Fiesta Pavilion of Manila Hotel to attend Aliw Awards 2019. He was nominated for best classical male performer and was adjudged winner later in the evening. Leo is Marinduque’s popular baritone who continues to bring classical music to the masses, especially to those in his home province.

After receiving the trophy, Leo flew to Marinduque the next day to perform in the Christmas Concert at the Marinduque Convention Hall.

Of bringing home the coveted Aliw Award trophy he was so inspired that Leo wrote in his FB: “…it is my hope that because of the Bel canto more classical style that I bring to song, I also somehow educate, uplift and expose our very musical and naturally gifted people to a more universal language/ that makes for a smaller world where music unites and creates a world more beautiful and profound, more enduring because it cannot but open the heart / To that which is not just of the moment but of the timeless eternal....”

Governor Presby Velasco congratulates Leo for win. He tells the audience that for this concert, part of the artistic group's outreach program they perform 'gratis et amore' with only the desire to share their talents. This, the governor said, promotes and produces 'good karma'.

Leo performs Tagalog Christmas songs with Vocale Filipina and I Baritone

The next day, 18th he flew to the island-province to share his artistry both as a performer and a conductor with Amici Chamber Orchestra, composed of young musicians from various places, his brainchild. Leo also came to sing with two other baritones he discovered in the island. Altogether they’re known as I Baritoni, and then to present Vocal Filipina composed of three guest sopranos, and to showcase some of the young musicians of Musika sa Isla. 

With Musika sa Isla performers, the vice-governor, the governor and Ms.Mayda Lagran of DepEd and Ms. Susan Nace of Dream Favor Travel and Tours.


Only three years ago, he was instrumental in training the young on the rudiments of violin, cello, flute and piano. Now, they’re playing together in his Christmas concert, part of the countdown to Centennial, for the great people of Marinduque.


Rest of the photos in this blog were taken during the successful concert, dubbed, “Christmas Concert in Mystical Marinduque, held on 18th December 2019, at the Marinduque Convention Center.

From the Marinduque Airport, Leo rushes to the Convention Center to check on sound, stage preps and last minute rehearsals.

Longest night this year in the Philippines, time to reflect on the past

Solstice sunset at Bahaghari

During the Winter Solstice, when darkness looms and the sun appears to almost standstill, so maybe it's time to think about letting go of the old to make room for the new. As a new year looms, it's not just a time to prepare for the holidays but also a time to reflect on the past and plan for the future.


The Philippines has experienced this year's longest night on December 22, with peak darkness slated around midnight, state weather bureau PAGASA said. "Philippine nights will be longer than the daytime" as the winter solstice begins”.

This flower bloomed on solstice morning

The solstice is the beginning of astronomical winter in the northern hemisphere when the nights are at their longest and the days are at their shortest. For the southern hemisphere, it’s the opposite—the beginning of summer.

On Sunday, December 22, 2019—the sun hangs over the Tropic of Capricorn in the southern hemisphere at midday before turning back. As the sun creeps northwards, it will appear higher in the sky above the equator and the days will slowly get longer.

What's left of a picnic hut in my place, Bahaghari, Amoingon that was completely destroyed by a December typhoon is set on fire by these boys before solstice sunset.

In photo is the multi-awarded Joseleo Logdat in one of his more recent performances abroad. To perform with a chamber orchestra and other classical artists at the Convention Center in Marinduque.  Admission is Free


There’s always a first time for all things bright and beautiful to come our way. Joseleo “Leo” Logdat, baritone, our homegrown multi-awarded international classical artist, for years, has given inspiration and joy to Marinduqueňos through his music.  

He inspired the creation of Musika sa Isla Orchestra in this island composed of young kids from different walks of life trained to play the violin, viola and cello; discovered other promising baritones here; and encouraged other musicians elsewhere to establish a group and share their music in various places.

Now Leo, nominated as Best Classical Male Singer in the forthcoming Aliw Awards, is set to bring to Marinduque this yuletide season a classical concert dubbed “Christmas Concert in Mystical Marinduque” at the Convention Center on Wednesday, December 18, 2019* at 7:00 pm. 

Leo has brought this concert during the last two years in Iloilo and Albay as an outreach program as he envisions to touch the hearts of their audiences all over the country.


Amici Chamber Orchestra, Leo Logdat, conductor
This yuletide concert is sponsored by the Provincial Government of Marinduque, the Office of Congressman Lord Allan Q. Velasco and the Marinduque Centennial Committee, the event being part of the countdown to the Centennial celebration on February 21, 2020. This program is also aimed to promote and enhance culture, the arts, tourism in the province and to create higher awareness on the Centennial.


Performing are the Amici Chamber Orchestra, (composed of Timothy Hidalgo, concert master, Eleazar Manguin(violin 1), Errol Sinag, (clarinet), Dave Jorvina (trumpet), Christian Taroy (trumpet), Oscarviv Sto. Nino (violin 2), Renjay Lapira (Trobone), Pauline Denito (viola), Jasmine Rain antonio (flute), Ronnie Agulay (tuba), Christine Joy Limon (horn), Francis Manuel (euphonium), and Melchor Constantino (percussion) with Joseleo Logdat (conductor).



Vocale Filipina is composed of sopranos Erielle Fornes, Via Villasin and Nelle Victor. 


I Baritoni, is composed of Jay Mangui, Ronnel Mauzar and Leo Logdat, all natives of this ‘mystical’ Marinduque.   

Selected members of Musika sa Isla Ensemble who are island Marinduque residents are also joining the concert with a special performance. They are Yesha Barola, Danielle Ampeloquio, Josette de la Santa, Clarisse Menorca, Micah Lagran, Bea Nace and Zriel Mangui.

The Centennial Committee meanwhile is enjoining local government officials, national agencies, barangay and youth leaders, schools, business community, civil society orgs and the religious community and the general public to partake in this first-ever Christmas event of its kind in the province.

The best of luck to Marinduque's Pride, Leo Logdat

Monicker 'Heart of the Philippines' rightfully belongs to Marinduque - Velasco

The very Heart of the Philippines. Screenshot of Kulas' vlog on 'The real Heart of the Philippines'. The Canadian vlogger, a recent visitor, has fallen in love with Marinduque

Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco today said that Marinduque is at the heart of the Philippine Archipelago even as he pushed for the construction of a monument to mark that spot in the Philippine map.

Called the “Luzon Datum,” Velasco called on his colleagues to formally recognize the findings of the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), the Provincial Government of Marinduque and the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), declaring the national significance of Datum Station Balanacan or the Luzon Datum as a historical landmark to mark the “Heart of the Philippines.”

Marinduque lawmaker explained that the landmark is the primary geodetic reference or origin of all geological surveys in the Philippines which means all maps and surveys made in the country use the Luzon Datum as a reference point.

This photo from Inquirer


Also called the “Luzon Datum of 1911,” the monument should signify that it is the geographical center of the Philippine archipelago.

Marinduque, dubbed as the “Heart of the Philippines”, is a heart-shaped island in the Southern Tagalog Region. Coincidentally, the island is also the geographical center of the archipelago and a stone marker marks its significance in Philippine geography.

Velasco said a marker has been fixed in what is known as the Luzon Datum of 1911 or Station Balanacan. This piece of stone marker is located on top of a hill that locals call Mataas na Bundok or Mt. Mataas in Barangay Hinanggayon, town of Mogpog.

In other countries, their geographic centers have become tourist attractions due to their creative initiative to build large stone monuments in these centers. Examples of these countries are Japan, India, Taiwan, Australia and the United States of America.

Velasco said the current global trend is to set up monuments in their respective geographic centers.

“It is high time we convert the Luzon Datum of 1911 into a modern-day tourist spot,” Velasco said.

In his House Bill No 1075, Velasco said that the development of a large stone monument in the Luzon Datum is feasible and beneficial, as it will help this country’s tourism and will also identify that the Luzon Datum is a significant geographical point in the Philippine archipelago.

State of Calamity declared in Boac, entire province of Marinduque next


Kahapon, Dec. 4, 2019, isang araw pagdaan ng Bagyong #TisoyPH, nagpasa na ang Sangguniang Bayan ng Boac ng isang resolusyon na nagdeklarang nasa ilalim na ng State of Calamity ang Bayan ng Boac.


Samantala, mula naman sa FB ni Bokal Adeline Angeles sa usapin ng pagdedeklara sa Marinduque under a State of Calamity ay ito ang kanyang ibinahagi:

UPDATE: Provincial DRRMC (PDRRMC) chaired by Gov. Presby Velasco Jr. already recommends to the Sangg. Panlalawigan the Declaration of Marinduque under the State of Calamity. The SP will hold a SPECIAL SESSION FOR THIS DECLARATION ANY MOMENT FROM NOW.

TANONG: Bakit hindi pa nagdi-declare ng State of Calamity ang Lalawigan ng Marinduque as of today (Dec. 4, 2019)?

SAGOT: Ang Sangguniang Panlalawigan po ang may kapangyarihang mag-declare nito, subalit:

I. MAY PROSESO AT CRITERIA pong sinusunod bago mag-declare ng State of Calamity sa ilalim ng batas. Guidelines:

1.) Kailangan munang may Rekomendasyon ng PDRRMC na dapat ay base naman sa Rapid Damage Assessment & Needs Analysis Report mula sa MDRRMCs ng 6 na bayan justifying the declaration; OR


b) Kung meron nang at least 2 bayan ng lalawigan na nag-declare na, then, automatic pwede na rin mag-declare in the provincial level.

AS OF DEC 4 (12:00 noon): 3 bayan/MDRRMCs pa lamang po ang nakapag-submit ng PARTIAL Damage Assessment Report sa PDRRMC at 1 bayan pa lamang ang nag-declare na ng State of Calamity kaya hindi pa po tapos ang REQUIRED PROCESS.

Gov. Velasco at PDRRMO Officer Rino Labay sa kanilang pag-iikot sa mga bayan matapos ang bagyo.

2. KANINA AY UMIKOT PO KAMI sa ilang bayan kasama ng ating Gobernador PRESBY VELASCO JR. at ONGOING pa po ang ginagawang proseso ng Damage at Needs Assessments ng mga munisipalidad kaya iniintay pa rin po ang mga MDRRMC Reports.
Ganun pa man po, naka-stand by po ang inyong mga officials dito sa lalawigan.
Bukas (Dec. 5) - naka-schedule mag-meeting ang PDRRMC at may SPECIAL SESSION din po ang SANGG. PANLALAWIGAN just in case pwede nang mag-declare ng State of Calamity.

REST ASSURED PO THAT WE WILL ACT ACCORDINGLY BUT WE HAVE TO RESPECT & FOLLOW THE MANDATED PROCESS. -  Bokal Lyn Angeles
