Capitol ground becomes picnic area

LINGAYEN — The vast greenery of the Capitol grounds served as a giant picnic area and playground to the thousands of Iglesia ni Cristo members who attended their church’ 95th Anniversary Celebration last July 27.

Before the start of the program at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center (NRSCC) here, young and adult church members toure the elegant and refurbished Capitol while others took a dip and frolic at the historic and spruced-up Lingayen Beach .

The rare experience for these people, including those from the neighboring provinces of Nueva Ecija, Tarlac and Zambales, elicited various remarks such as: “Ito ang pinakamagandang Kapitolyo na nakita namin;” “Hindi kami makapaniwala na may ganito pang building sa probinsiya;” “Kahit mainit sa labas sulit ang pagpasyal namin;” “Para kang nasa palasyo, ang gaganda ng mga gamit at chandeliers.”

Chiz: Create more jobs by developing other tourist spots

Opposition Sen. Chiz Escudero yesterday said that every possible destination in the country should be promoted and developed with the same passion and effort as those being done with Boracay, Bohol, Cebu and Palawan.

“Providence has provided the Philippines with incomparable tourist attractions like its more than 7,000 islands. But only a fraction of them have been explored,” he said during a recent visit to Tagbilaran, Bohol.

“Whoever becomes the next president should try to maximize our country’s advantage in tourism to create more jobs and increase income from the industry,” he added.
