While we’re on the subject of farming, here’s a news video on how the vegetable farms in La-Trinidad, Benguet has become a tourist destination.

Let’s take a break from controversial (and depressing) stuff like those Baguio City Council members (except Councilor Tabora and Vice Mayor Fariñas) voting to buy cars for themselves to give out our next Boon Award.
Here’s an interesting video that you should watch. The first part contains footages taken at the Bontoc Museum and its artifacts of the past. The second part contains some footages of present-day Bontoc with its tricycles and all. It makes an interesting comparison between “then” and “now”. [UPDATE: Oops, as two of you pointed out, this really is not present-day Bontoc since the video must have been taken 20 to 25 years ago. Thanks for the correction Anonymouses 🙂 Our mistake, we should have known better. Cheers.]
Here’s a very nice video of Bangued, the capital town of Abra. Don’t miss the Sleeping Beauty around the 20-second mark. You can read more about the town of Bangued at Bangued Online. Our friend who is managing the site is doing a great job promoting the town.
If the DOST folks get some lessons from Bangued Online, they will realize that they don’t have to spend P97.1 million to build a tourism database. Thanks friend and more power to you 🙂
