However or whatever whatchamacallit, it will always be viewed and perceived as the big capital consolidating ownership of print, broadcast and media as drive towards monopoly, control and discretion on dispersing content and media information. Take a look at the giant PLDT Group which owns TV channel 5 by way […]

“The real reason for physical fitness goes beyond the benefits one accrues from a healthy lifestyle,” is a famous line by Richard H. Utt. I personally believe it could be the dogma of every person who believes that Life is the most precious gift given by GOD. Therefore, it is […]

Poetry is a part of literature that is now going passe. Gone were the days when poetry reading was once a part of grand occasions looking back into our Hispanic heritage. It is even getting less and less popular among students what with their current interest. Something understandable, as technology […]
Last March 21 was our school’s Commencement Exercises. It also wrapped-up my first 200 days in the public school. Just like any other things we get involved with, the first teaching experience is always novel. I had my very first year ever as mentor in the public school way back […]

The conversion of CSSAC into CBSUA has made a tremendous grandeur for my Alma Matter, a far cry from what I had known during the CSAC days. The new University is expected to provide technological science including education, arts, and science.
With this post, we say goodbye to our handful of friends in the MyBloglog community. Early in February, this writer received a notice from Yahoo that the service is closing. To some who found enough friends and interacted for some time on various issues and field of interest, its bowing out in the social networking arena will be missed.
Allow me to splurge in luxury and exaggeration in talking about my sister’s flower plants in her small front yard in Legaspi city. She has appointed enough elbow room and growth space- actually all of the space thereabout- for her source of surprise and delight. She spend good times meticulously […]
I strongly believe one of the most beloved pope in the world is Pope John Paul II. He visited the Philippines twice. The first historic and memorable visit to the city of Legaspi was on February 21, 1981. He made a return trip to the country during the World Youth Day Celebration in January 12-16, 1995 in Manila.
Semana santa is a tradition deeply rooted in the heart of every Calabangueño. The holy event is ever so old and yet always new. The Calabangueño reflects in solitude, in sanctity and in seclusion. Deep in his heart finds joy and anticipation of the filial, friendly and Godly devotion renewed and refreshed by the holy week celebration. Thus, it tugs him to go on a yearly exodus he just wouldn’t want to miss.

This writer got distraught had to stop writing post while thinking of the worst possibility- online posts, comments, images, data, may be lost forever if its repository- the SQL database get affected.
Legazpi city: Summer has long been gone here. It starts just when the school year ends in March. So students connect summer to days without the regular classes, homeworks and tests. No tensions, more of fun, outings (to the beach and movies?) and also malling (now a favorite past time […]
Cbanga360, the street journal about Calabanga and many things Bicol, was one idea of how to fill dull days into something worth productive. It turned out, the process of maintaining the blog, i.e., writing posts consume our time coupled with leg work, research, coordination and much more.
One big change in the layout came about with the quick approval from Google Adsense. Expect there would be more changes in our endeavor to improve Cbanga360 which may include opening our doors to contributors, more responsive articles, a forum, etc. For this, we always maintain a positive outlook.
Just noticed this morning older posts (those beyond the home page/first page) with comments from friends and visitors who dropped by are either lost or not counted as it displays “0” (zero) or “1” by merely looking at the bottom of the post.
