Here’s the published article about Camp Pabilani. It’s just the first of the series. In the long run, the author wants to publish a researched article about the said camp since it contains historical value.

In the next several months, here are the series that will be ran in this site:

  • Vicente Peralta series
  • Orosipon series
  • Sorsogon’s historical articles researched from various sources in the net

I will be scratching Camp Pabilani on the list. I am publishing  a short article about it based on my grandmother’s story about its origin.

[3/16/2011, 0620H]

I am updating this again with some updates:

  1. Sorsogon National High School
  2. Sorsogon State College, formerly known as Sorsogon College of Arts and Trades – to be published 2 weeks from now
  3. Sorsogon Provincial Capitol Bldg.
  4. Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral
  5. The old church in Bacon district
  6. Sorsogon Pilot Elementary School
  7. Sorsogon East Central Elementary School/Burabod Elementary School
  8. Colegio de la Milagrosa
  9. Sorsogon Satellite City
  10. Galleons of Magallanes
  11. List of Mayors of districts of Bacon and Sorsogon
  12. Bacon/Tolongapo Beach
  13. Camp Pabilani and the Reserve Program in Sorsogon
  14. Busay in Brgy. Guinlajon – saday na busay is more accessible. Perhaps that’s the short term objective, aside from the fact that I will definitely have a hard time tracing the trail to the daku na busay.
  15. PNOC Ecotourism Site – I need to plan this out since you cannot simply show up without coordinating with the local travel group, whoever they are.
  16. Rimpulas – scratched one!
  17. Sorsogon’s Ancestral Houses:
  • De Vera ancestral house aka Bayview Hotel (it was also a hospital for sometime)
  • Additional information on the Monje ancestral house
  • The old house of the Leocadio family in Talisay, opposite of Colegio de la Milagrosa
  • Dino’s Ancestral House along Peralta St.
  • There’s also this old house behind Fatima parish that I want to check out as well. This is the Mella’s ancestral house.

[2/21/2011, 0635H]

I am scratching off the article for the De Vera ancestral house. It should be ready within the next two weeks.

[2/13/2011, 0958H]

Just completed the 2-part article about Rimpulas.

I am now updating the list:

  1. Sorsogon National High School
  2. Sorsogon State College, formerly known as Sorsogon College of Arts and Trades
  3. Sorsogon Provincial Capitol Bldg.
  4. Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral
  5. The old church in Bacon district
  6. Sorsogon Pilot Elementary School
  7. Sorsogon (Burabod) East Central Elementary School
  8. Colegio de la Milagrosa
  9. Sorsogon Satellite City
  10. Galleons of Magallanes
  11. List of Mayors of districts of Bacon and Sorsogon
  12. Bacon/Tolongapo Beach
  13. Camp Pabilani and the Reserve Program in Sorsogon
  14. Busay in Brgy. Guinlajon – saday na busay is more accessible. Perhaps that’s the short term objective, aside from the fact that I will definitely have a hard time tracing the trail to the daku na busay.
  15. PNOC Ecotourism Site – I need to plan this out since you cannot simply show up without coordinating with the local travel group, whoever they are.
  16. Rimpulas – scratched one!
  17. Sorsogon’s Ancestral Houses:
  • De Vera ancestral house aka Bayview Hotel (it was also a hospital for sometime)
  • Additional information on the Monje ancestral house
  • The old house of the Leocadio family in Talisay, opposite of Colegio de la Milagrosa
  • There’s also this old house behind Fatima parish that I want to check out as well.

Calling for volunteers who can provide me with additional information, it’s greatly appreciated. Of course, if you can provide the sources, much better.

[1/27/2011, 0040H]

Based on 2 comments, additional items are added:

  1. Busay in Brgy. Guinlajon – saday na busay is more accessible. Perhaps that’s the short term objective
  2. PNOC Ecotourism Site
  3. Rimpulas
  4. I am now creating a separate list for the old houses:
    • De Vera ancestral house aka Bayview Hotel (it was also a hospital for sometime)
    • Additional information on the Monje ancestral house
    • The old house of the Leocadio family in Talisay, opposite of Colegio de la Milagrosa
    • There’s also this old house behind Fatima parish

Uh-oh, it’s getting longer. Well, the article about Bacon Beach will be published next week. I might try to write about Rimpulas. And I am going to Sorsogon on mid-February, I might be able to take additional pictures.

[1/23/2011, 0822H]

The article on Bacon Beach will be published next weekend.

The author reviewed again the list and modified it a bit:

  1. Sorsogon National High School
  2. Sorsogon State College, formerly known as Sorsogon College of Arts and Trades
  3. Sorsogon Provincial Capitol Bldg.
  4. Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral
  5. The old church in Bacon district
  6. Sorsogon Pilot Elementary School
  7. Sorsogon (Burabod) East Central Elementary School
  8. Colegio de la Milagrosa
  9. Sorsogon Satellite City
  10. Galleons of Magallanes
  11. List of Mayors of districts of Bacon and Sorsogon
  12. Bacon/Tolongapo Beach
  13. Camp Pabilani and the Reserve Program in Sorsogon

The author removed items on various Bacon beach resorts and the sports stadium. I feel that there are more important topics that these. Though, it may pop up sooner or later, but it’s not the author’s priority in the next 2 years.

[1/15/2011, 0621H]

The author is looking on two major areas for this site, namely, history of Sorsogon City, perhaps to the extent of the nearby towns and the province itself. The other is more on the development of the city itself, which can include new landmark, restos, recent update on government programs and the likes.

The rules of engagement for such content shall follow web netiquette wherein sources will be credited. And if it’s not credited or simply personal opinion, it should also be categorized. And any reader can remind the author about this.

Here are some topics to be developed in the next 12 months:

  1. Sorsogon National High School
  2. Sorsogon State College, formerly known as Sorsogon College of Arts and Trades
  3. Sorsogon Provincial Capitol Bldg.
  4. Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral
  5. The old church in Bacon district
  6. Sorsogon Pilot Elementary School
  7. Sorsogon (Burabod) East Central Elementary School
  8. Balogo Sports Stadium
  9. Colegio de la Milagrosa
  10. Sorsogon Satellite City
  11. Galleons of Magallanes
  12. List of Mayors of districts of Bacon and Sorsogon
  13. Bacon/Tolongapo Beach
  14. Various Bacon Beach Resorts
  15. Camp Pabilani and the Reserve Program in Sorsogon

Some of these topics can spill over to 2012 since it will require series of visits and interviews to sources. But the author has the time, even if it means another year or two.

The author encourages the readers to share their own suggestions, perhaps share the information for the above mentioned topics would be great also.

This article will serve as a tracker for the bucket list in the next 2 years.

    that is a long list you got there already! what i find fascinating about some of the places you got is ang architecture…some of them are really old buildings. i was just wondering, whatever happened to Bayview Hotel? got any idea…i used to go there san wara na naka-istar, although its private property i think somehow may history man idto, i think some visiting presidents used to stay there when they’re in sorsi..would have been nice if it was restored.

    • sorsogoncity says:

      Bayview Hotel? Are you referring to the one in Manila or the one in Sorsogon? Unless my mind is playing tricks on me, Are you referring to the old house beside Pilot? If so, I just put it on the side since the whole place is dilapidated; though, try the sorsogonupdate.blogspot.com – I found 2 articles there about old houses in Sorsogon. And I think the Bayview, if I got the right building, is included.

    how about bacman geothermal? or busay falls? rempyolas? pinakulan island? it would be interesting to include these in your list as the plant is a major contribution not only in the development of the city but also the country. btw, colegio de la milagrosa is now known as st louise de marillac college of sorsogon.

    • sorsogoncity says:

      Noted, Judith. I can’t still remember the new name of CM from time to time, so I still use its old name. And for Sorsogon, for me, it’s still my hometown; and Bacon will always be a sister town for me.

    • sorsogoncity says:

      Rimpulas/Rempeolas/Rempyolas is part of the plan. But I think I wasn’t able to include it. I read an article about this, perhaps, I will follow the same format. Though I have to go back and take some pictures again.

    I just would like to inform the author of this article/blog that it should be SORSOGON EAST CENTRAL SCHOOL (SECS) not Sorsogon (Burabod) East Central Elementary School. The said central school is formerly known as Burabod Elementary School and located at Burabod, East District, Sorsogon City.It is the largest public elementary school in Sorsogon City in terms of land area..I am hoping that the author conduct a research and publish articles about the history of the said school because sabi ng matatanda, it is the first public elementray school in Sorsogon City. Thanks.
