Batangbaler Email is Working Again

Friday, June 26th, 2009

To all 3 batangbaler readers who uses the email address, the service is working again. You can receive emails in your mailbox again. The mail settings was changed when the website was transfered to a different server. I forgot to reconfigure it. Sorry for that.

This is the link to batangbaler email –>

To those who want to have their own batangbaler email address, just holler in my direction and i will gladly make one for you. Or you can email me at batangbaler at gmail dot com.

Visit the Aurora Booth at Wow Philippines in Intramuros

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Today is the start of the Central Luzon exhibit at the Wow Philippines Expo at Intamuros Manila. The tourism and trade fair will run for three weeks until July 5. Aurora Province will have it’s own booth at the exhibit. And on June 19, there will be a special Aurora Day event at the venue. This will be a whole day of presentations, fashion show, and cultural programs all about Aurora.

For those Aurorans who haven’t been to the province for a long time, this is your chance. You can’t go to Aurora, so Aurora will come to you.

Website Advisory

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

The website has been going off and on these last few days. Mostly it displays a database error at night (Philippine time) and would only be online at around 10 am the next day. I contacted the hosting company and they say its normal. Maybe normal to them but not for me.

So, in the interest of public service and to avoid disappointment by the BB addicts (all 3 of them), I requested a transfer to a new hosting plan with zero downtime architecture (whatever that means). So expect more downtime in the coming days as the site migrates. Lets hope things will come back to “above normal” in time for the Aurora Day celebration. Cheers brotha!

Camera Crisis

Thursday, January 29th, 2009


The camera being used by Batangbaler, to take important pictures like the one above; donated by the Aurora Association USA, just died recently. So I’m back to borrowing cameras from friends and strangers. Expect fewer photos this year.

(I’m winking to all the Batangbaler’s benefactors with this post. Here’s hoping you can read between the lines. ;-)
