Batangbaler is the unofficial community website/blog of all the scattered Balerians and Aurorans on Earth. It contains news, features, links and everything about that place they call home. Joseph T. Gonzales, aka Kidlat, a true blue Baler local is the creator of this website/blog. This blog is a work of a one man army and supported by sponsors from all over the planet. It started as a website on October 2001 when there was still no internet connection in Baler. The webmaster used to update the site via Genesis bus.
