The entrance to our Baranggay viewed from the other side of the road. Just by glance, you’ll already know that the Baranggay is surrounded by nature.
The arc of our Baranggay that greets the visitors when they enter. This was put up through the initiative of the Sangguniang Kabataan of our Baranggay. This was their major project.
The waiting shed that covers you from the scorching heat of the sun and from the rain that falls heavily to bring water to earth. Its light paint calls for your attention and you just want to take a rest and look around nature.
“GREEN is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.” — Pedro Calderon De La Barca
The road that you take while being surrounded by trees. While walking past by the crops, take a deep breath and fresh air creeps into your nose healing your body and mind.
The dragon fruit farm erected by the residents. It produces fruit yearly and the residents harvest it every time.
Farming is the primary source of income for the residents. These are corn crops that is over a month old.
The rice crops that are almost ready to be harvested. These crops are planted at the right side of the road.

The oldest resident in our baranggay. She is Maria Apron Madigal and we call her “Lila Basang.” She still sweeps their front yard but she is already deaf. You need to raise your voice in order for her to hear you. Photo courtesy of JP Madigal.
The new baranggy hall located just beside the playground.
The mini playground in our baranggay. It has one slide and two swings. It is not usually being used during the school days.
The slide and swing are interconnected. The playground is situated beside the house of our baranggay captain.
