This site is really great!
It chronicles important characteristics, personalities and events of CAR and it keeps us reminded of the historic past of the region.
Pls allow me to link and use some of the images and narrative about Manong Gus for my postings on pioneering Cordillera newsmen.

Hello Scott,

I just got back home from Tabuk this morning after attending the BOT meeting at the diocesan for St Paul’s Memorial School, Balbalasang for a fresh start for this school year 2009-2010. I will be back again next week via Abra to bring in people from the Board of Trustees of St Luke’s to visit our place. They were so interested in seeing that lovely remote village after i related some of the beauty that comes from within – the unspoiled charm that that transcends others opinion.I invited them personally by the way to help jump-start the rehabilitiation of the church and hopefully all of the mission properties within. Hoping it will start next year. I felt it as my own personal quest to help the people of Balbalasang and dreamed of making that place shine again…against all odds! It is my biggest dream to start something before i leave finally for France this coming August.
By looking at the photos you’ve posted above, my family in Balbalasang has several snapshots of your father and friends in their younger days. My aunt is an avid compiler of photos of the yesteryears of which she belongs too and i find it amazing to see the gleaming faces of the early youths of Balbalasang. If you happen to go Balbalasang one day…ask for the Baguiwong family house and from there you can ask to see the old album that contains the youth of Balbalasang in the 1930′s – 1960′s. Perhaps it might be of help!
Do have a good day and continue with the good work…It’s a legacy from your dad (one of the best sons of Balbalasang).

I wish you well in all your plans, manang. Would you happen to know if my dad was able to write a historical sketch of SPMS? I’m sure he was working on it shortly before he died. If he wasn’t able finish it, I am willing to go over uncle Theodore’s draft on the history of SPMS which I still have with me, finalize it and send a hard copy to the Diocesan in Tabuk. Ingatz! :)

hi scott….
i hope you still remember me. we were together for a short time here in baguio, and your dad is an esteemed colleague (better yet, MANONG) of mine. it was an honor to rub shoulders with Manong Gus when I was just a cub reporter here.
Funny I came across your site at a time when Cory fever is back in the country, with her much publicized burial yesterday. This sad event evoked memories of the Cordillera Administrative Region, Balweg, CRA-CEB-CBA, CPLA, and of course your dad and the several others I’ve had the honor of working with. Manong Peppot, of course. Sergio Kawi, Abe Pawid, Nathan Alcantara, Lakay Ben Rillera, Lakay Joe Florendo, and all the rest….
I hope you’re doing fine in your projects there in Kalinga. One reason why I decided to post this note is that, while Baguio City is about to celebrate its Centennial Year this September 1, there seems to be gaps about its history in relation to the tribes of the old Mountain Provinces. I’ve worked with the Centennial Commission as a researcher for some time, and I’m planning to write a revised (and complete) history of Baguio this Centennial Year. Hope you could help me. Let’s keep in touch. email me at or I maintain regular weekend columns in the Sunstar, Cordillera Today, and Zigzag.

Ingat bro! and best regards.

halu bro, very happy to be in touch with you again! how would I forget a good friend!? :) hay, all those names make me wistful for the Old Dainty… been digging into my dad’s files for old photos of Baguio/Baguio newsfolks, ever since I chanced upon mam Ruby Carino who was enthusiastic about them. Am back in Baguio gayam, now teaching at UPB so we’re close enough to have a cup of tea one time. :) i hope to see you 01 Sept at National Bookstore (SM Baguio) for the launching of Baguio Vintage and The Baguio We Know. cheers!
