1st Boriring Festival in Cadiz City

Many People would think the Buriring is the same as Butete which are both from the same Family of Puffer Fish. However, long ago in Cadiz the Boriring has been known to be a staple food considering the abundance of Santol Trees in Cadiz at that time. Yes, if not cleaned well, boriring is dangerous and will continue to be, but the specialized cooking procedure in Cadiz made this fish a staple of safe and delicious delicacy.

This Month, the Cadiz City Tourism Office led by Mrs. Juanily Pedrosa organized the Boriring Festival together with the rest of the 2nd District namely Manapla and Sagay. It was also covered by the regional news agency like ABS-CBN and GMA where it was featured last night at Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho. Some local foodies and bloggers also covered the said event for different types of cooking for this rare and exotic food.

It might look like small mices at first, but then once you have a taste of it, it will whet your appetite. The same way you thought of BALUT before, the looks won’t do justice to the taste. So come visit Cadiz and Try

BASYANG is Leaving, now a Tropical Depression

As we updated recently, Tropical Cyclone Basyang is just now a Tropical Depression and is slowly leaving the Philippines area of responsibility.

Negros Occidental is still at Signal #1 and some damages were experienced especially on the Coastal Areas. Some have not yet recovered from Yolanda, and Basyang decided to do some more misery to our fellow Cadiznons.

At Around 12MN, Cadiz City experienced some intermittent power outages and then followed by a longer outage between 1AM to almost 5AM due to the pick-up of winds which was howling and was already strong at that time. Some power interruptions followed normalizing at around 9AM as tested on our power monitoring equipment. As of now at 1144AM, we experienced another blackout lasting up to 12:06NN.

Today, weather outside is gloomy, although some rays of sunshine is seen. Some social media posts shows photos of damages in Cadiz, and more thanking our dear Lord for a lesser impact than Yolanda, as psychologically, Cadiznons has not gotten over yet the fear of another Yolanda Looming on us when we have not yet totally recovered.

The Good News is that Cadiznons are still in high spirits today, discussing the weather

DAGSA DALAGAN: Fun Run Para Sa Kabataan 2014

BANGON CADIZNON, the Group and Organization formed from this site from it’s humble beginnings which started during the Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan has now reached over 5000 Families, and though we have a Lull of Updates, we continued to give Gifts in December through our Generous Donors, Partners and Sponsors.

Our Advocacy was and is to help the people of Cadiz Affected by Yolanda by distributing relief goods, materials and items that would help them move on from the calamity. In Late December, considering the outpouring of help for Cadiz, we decided to stop the Relief Operations and Moved to Gift-Giving.

Since the Founder of BANGON CADIZNON is also a part of the Philippine Normal University Batch 98 or known as “Nubentay Otso”, it is their Creed every Christmas of every year to do some gift-giving to the Children of Cadiz. This has also influenced several other batches from PNU, specifically Batch ’85 who has been generous to the call of BANGON CADIZNON and we now collectively give our thanks, since all other Batches also supported, the PNU/PNC LHS/CTL Alumni Association through the Alumni president, Mrs. Emily Florida Esimos who is also the BANGON CADIZNON

Supporters & Partners: Their Stories of Determination

As all of you may have noticed now, all our News in some way are mixed with the movement of the newly formed Group that Caters to the Needs of the Common Cadiznon, the BANGON CADIZNON Group. And as a multi-organizational group, we have a few of our supporters and donors who also coordinate with us, work with us and also are actually one of us. Our Group is not concerned with names, or who brought what and where, as long as those that are targeted by the group are those who need it most. We have a lot of missions that had happened, and a lot of stories of Miracles, Determination, Sympathy and Love. This one Story is specially forwarded to us by one of our Partners from Philippine Normal University LHS/CTL Alumni, through Miss Jabez Oberes.

The Story of a Fruitful Inconvenience

Someone once wrote that kindness, love and goodness to children are the only investments that never fail. It is on that same premise that the PNULHS/CTL alumni decided to touch the lives of the young school children in Lakawon Island.

On December 2, 2013, we headed to the island to distribute the school supplies we packed for the kids.
