Beautiful Baguio:
Relax, enjoy, and have fun

Endearing panoramic scenes, invigorating pine-scented fresh air, commodious and peaceful environment. Come and enjoy this exhilarating experience as you explore the City of Pines as it offers complete comfort and relaxation for those who seek this one of a kind feeling especially this summer. 
   
Being a minority across time

By observation and experience, I always find it simpler and more meaningful from the standpoint of “personal” history and exposure rather than from generalizations. To borrow Maushi Sanggoi’s words: “inductively yours to deductive, and back to inductive!”
   
Exotic and mystical Abra

Look into a published list of the alphabetized Philippine provinces and its name will lead the pack.
   
Apayao:
Home of the Isnag Tribe

Apayao was once a sub-province of the old Mountain Province created in 1908. It was merged with Kalinga in 1966 creating the province of Kalinga-Apayao. However, by virtue of Republic Act 7878 signed into law by President Fidel Ramos, Apayao became a separate province on the 14th day of February in 1995.
   
Benguet has it all

Strawberries, mummies, Igorots, silk, and Mt. Pulag. These are the things that got into the mind of this new person I have met when I told her I was from Benguet. Probably, these will also be the things that would enter other people’s mind when they hear of the word Benguet.
   
Ifugao, home to bountiful heritage

Some would say that Ifugaos have tails. Others would say that Ifugaos are headhunters and witches. Others even consider us uncivilized and barbaric people who wear g-strings and tapis.  Due to deprecations I personally experience whenever I go to other places, the prints of bitterness will always remain.
   
The Pride of Kalinga

“United we stand, divided we fall,” is the saying that fits our province Kalinga for it is one of the few which was never colonized by  foreigners and as a result, we were able to preserve our natural resources as well as our culture.
   
The land called Mountain Province

“Gawis ay Mountain Province” is a common motto by the Montañosans, a motto promoting a good Mountain Province. What really makes Mountain Province good? Shall we explore?
   
Benguet farmers'
woes over vegetable prices

LA TRINIDAD, BENGUET – Farmers and traders are locked daily in a price war over the costs of vegetables sold in wholesale at the La Trinidad Vegetable Trading Post here.     
   
Festivals for peace and progress
in Mountain Province

Long before a province-wide festival came into inception four years ago, people from the 10 towns and different barangays of this landlocked province gathered only during town fiestas, weddings, family and clan reunions, and, in some villages, after the harvest season. 
   
Kalinga: A roadmap to progress

From what used to be a purely agricultural province, Kalinga is blossoming into an industrial area with slow but sure progress.
This is evidenced by the uptrend in its economic acti-vity, which creates a domino effect on employment opportunities.
   
A Napulawan experience

Since our arrival in Hungduan, Ifugao, I have often heard about Mount Napulawan. It is one of the famous tourist spots in this municipality, and it is near Barangay Hapao.
   
Displaced binga folks:
Pesky footnote in Napoco's legacy?

The face was familiar but the story was not. When he left the session hall of the provincial board of Benguet two hours later on March 3, 2008, Prof. Eufronio Lampitao Pungayan had unveiled a 50-year issue that has not been seriously deliberated by the august body (or touched with a 10-foot pole by a succession of politicians) since the pro-vince of Benguet took shape on June 18, 1966.

 

A peek into Cordillera’s last nature frontier
The grueling journey from Baguio belied what is in Kabugao — Apayao’s capital town.

   
A taste of Abra

Political violence. Private armies. Gun for hire. Conflict area of the north.
Countless insurgency infested areas. This is what most people would associate the province of Abra with. Most people from outside the Cordilleras will be hesitant to visit Abra as they would the southernmost parts of Mindanao. The stories of violence are sure turn-offs.
   
Atty. Federico Muñoz Mandapat Sr.:
A story of a war and sports hero

Medals won by athletes today are almost a dime a dozen but for one athletics champion, his medal won for him his freedom during World War II and eventually, his future wife.
