As in all Albay province cities and municipalities, Bacacay’s imposing landmark is the Mayon Volcano. Our town is located on the Mayon’s eastern slopes, where it can be seen in all its perfect-coned glory. This photo is one of the many common scenes in rural Bacacay that highlights the beauty of Mayon.

Discover & Explore Bacacay#12 – Old Church Ruins

I love the vibrancy of this photo! I found it via the internets – taken by Glenn De Guzman and posted on Panoramio.com

The Old Church Ruins of Bacacay, Albay can be found in Barangay 2 – beside the present Parish Church. When we were kids, we amuse ourselves by going to this part of the church grounds and spook each other silly!  Later on, I learned to appreciate and value its historical significance for our town – the same way I appreciate Roca Baluarte (soon to be featured). I find that I love and appreciate ancient ruins and old, historical structures and it’s a delight that our town has such.

I’d very much like to have our pre-nup shots here!

Hey chedeng!

Monday greeted our country with news that Tropical Storm Chedeng, with international codename of Songda, has entered the Philippine area of responsibility and threatening Eastern Samar and most possibly Bicol.

Heavy rain and strong winds are expected. There’s none such yet in our town/province but everyone is already bracing against these. In fact, the constant coming of thunderstorms, low pressure areas or tropical depressions, tropical storms, typhoons and sometimes even super typhoons have become a way of life for us Bicolanos (especially Bacacayanos). We have already been traumatized a lot because of these natural weather “disasters”.

As such, whenever there’s news of a brewing storm/typhoon everybody is on heightened alert – even those who are not really in Bicol/Bacacay. And, that’s a good thing actually.
