Daet to undergo massive face-lifting
By Jonas Cabiles Soltes

DAET, Camarines Norte --- This capital town has started to renew itself as it aggressively seeks to become the only city in this province.

Among the renewal projects are the decongestion of the town proper, the establishment of a new government center, construction of a new transport terminal, and the revitalization of the Bagasbas Airport.

“The enhancement of the elevated plaza is necessary to decongest downtown in an attempt to rebuild the centerpoint of the commercial district,” said Mayor Tito Sarion.

He said the United Architects of the Philippines had agreed to design the new face of the plaza, which will be refurbished partly through a P3-million allocation from Bayan Muna party list.

“A telephone company will take care of improvements to make the plaza more attractive. An attractive landmark will be installed in the fountain area to beautify the plaza,” he added.

He said the new plaza should also generate income.

Included in the financing package, according to Sarion, is the construction of a government center to make transactions more convenient.

A new government center has been welcomed by national government agencies in the town, he said.

A new legislative hall will also be created. “It will create a breathing space and a better working environment at the municipal hall, where offices are crowded.”

He said all public utility vehicles including buses would be housed in an integrated terminal. “This is the best answer to congestion caused by proliferation of illegal private terminals.”

Private terminals would be reserved for tricycles and ambulant vendors to prevent clogging of the streets.

Decongestion measures were also implemented to allay the projection that Daet would be so crowded in five years, making the municipality less business-friendly.

Councilor Rosa Mia King, the chairman of the committee on public utilities of the municipal council, said Landbank would provide a loan of P30 million for the construction of the integrated terminal and P30 million for the new government center, for a total of P60 million.

The municipal government, in coordination with the National Parks Development Board, is also starting a sightseeing destination along the Daet River by constructing the Daet River Park Promenade.

But the most important development in Daet could be the repair of the Bagasbas Airport, a secondary facility that is not operating at present.

Officials of Daet Airport confirmed that funds are already available for the rehabilitation of the airport, which will start next year, in time with the return of the commercial flight to Daet.

The municipal council has also authorized Sarion “to negotiate with the owner of the land” that would be turned into Daet Light Industrial Park, a public-private undertaking.

The industrial park, said Sarion, would position Daet as a location for business processing and outsourcing.

Daet, located 365 kilometers southeast of Manila, has been aspiring for cityhood but is prevented from being a city because of its limited land area.

But Sarion said the municipal government dug out new information that could boost the cityhood bid of the bustling town.

He said new information showed that the municipality may reacquire sufficient land area based on the record during the creation of the municipalities of Basud and San Vicente.

Sarion said the technical descriptions reflected on old maps showed that Daet has been wrongly sliced off of its territory upon the creation of the two neighboring towns.

The law requires that a municipality may be converted into a component city only if it meets two of three requirements: locally generated average annual income of P100 million for the last two consecutive years, contiguous territory of at least 100 sq km, or a population of not less than 150,000 inhabitants.

Sarion said while the town’s local income is only more than P50 million, it would be easy for Daet, a first-class town with a population of 98,184, to meet the P100-million annual income threshold.

Camarines Norte Representative (2nd District) Elmer Panotes has expressed support to the cityhood bid of Daet.

But Panotes said that this town would have higher chances of becoming a city through the revival of a pending House Bill that calls for the automatic creation of a city in provinces that have no city, such as Camarines Norte.

2 NPAs killed, 4 soldiers hurt in Bicol clashes

2 NPAs killed, 4 soldiers hurt in Bicol clashes


Two suspected New People's Army rebels were killed while four Army soldiers were hurt following separate clashes in the Bicol Region for the past 48 hours, regional military officers said Friday.

In San Pascual town in Masbate, government troops engaged 15 insurgents at Sitio Kagirao in Quintana village around 6:20 a.m. Friday, resulting in the death of two suspected rebels, said Col. Generoso Bolina of the Armed Forces Southern Luzon Command.

The clash came more than a month after insurgents attacked the Mobo police station in the province which left a soldier dead and 10 others wounded.

"After weeks of hot pursuit operations, Army soldiers encountered about 15 NPA rebels," Bolina said.

The bodies of the slain rebels were left behind by their fleeing comrades. Government troops later recovered a number of items, including a cal.-30 machine gun, an M16 rifle, an M653 Armalite rifle, and 21 improvised explosives.

On Thursday in Camarines Norte, four soldiers were wounded after engaging suspected NPA rebels in Labo town.

Major Angelo Guzman of the Army's 10th Infantry Division identified those wounded as Pfc. Marlon B Gastilo, Pfc Mark Anthony D Villaruel, Pfc Larry Joshua C Magalona and Pfc Jeaner R Bitagara, all with the 92nd Division Reconnaissance Company.

At the time of the clash, Guzman said the government troops were on their way to a coordinating conference for an upcoming civic action mission.

The clashes came even as the government and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines have agreed to resume formal talks next month.

Stalled in August 2004, the talks are expected to take place in Oslo, Norway. — RSJ, GMA News

New system will double PLDT international bandwidth
Construction of new undersea cable system starts

MANILA, Philippines, November 16, 2011 - The Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) announced Wednesday that marine construction work has started on the $300-million Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE) which when completed in the third quarter of 2012 will more than double PLDT's existing international bandwidth capacity.

The 7,200-kilometer undersea cable network project is being undertaken by PLDT, NTTCom of Japan, and StarHub of Singapore, in partnership with NEC Corp. and Fujitsu Ltd.

The start of cable laying work was marked by a ceremony last week in Daet, Camarines Norte where PLDT's cable landing station is being built. This is PLDT's third landing station, after those in Nasugbu, Batangas and Bauang, La Union.

"We have designed a future-ready network that can potentially supply more than 15 Terabits per second capacity, initially using 40 Gigabits per second wavelength technology, and in the future, 100 Gigabits per second wavelength capability,” said PLDT Network Services Assurance Senior Vice President George N. Lim.

He added that “the ASE system will initially link Japan, Philippines, Hong Kong, and Singapore through fiber optic cable that spans 7,200 kilometers. It will also connect us to Malaysia, and in the next phases, potentially to other economically vibrant Asian countries, such as China, Vietnam and Thailand. ASE can be connected to other major cable systems to Europe, the Middle East, the other parts of Asia, and the United States of America.”

The ASE is a new generation, high bandwidth, optical fiber undersea cable system. It is the biggest capacity international submarine cable ever to land in the Philippines which will enable PLDT and its group of companies, including Smart, Digitel and Sun to serve the increasing bandwidth requirements of their combined customer base.

Once operational, the new cable system will benefit large businesses like banks, call centers, and BPO companies, as well as small and medium enterprises that do business through the internet.

With the ASE, new bandwidth heavy broadband applications requiring international access, such as IP-based data, external video content, and other external multimedia services can be offered by the PLDT Group, and easily accessed by its customers.

ASE will further enhance and fortify the resiliency of PLDT’s international network. PLDT Network Planning and Engineering Vice President Gene Sanchez explained that “a highly resilient international network is expected to survive man-made and natural disasters such as the major undersea earthquake near the Bashi channel in December 2006 which resulted in the temporary ‘isolation’ of some countries. ASE can easily help fulfill such aspiration of PLDT.”

“With a highly resilient network, PLDT for instance will be able to divert all or part of its traffic towards Japan and the US, via the new diverse route that ASE will traverse if problems, such as multiple cable cuts happen to APCN2, EAC, and AAG cables which all pass through the Bashi channel between Taiwan and Luzon Island,” Sanchez said.

Daet Municipal Mayor Tito Sarte Sarion welcomed the PLDT, NTTCom, and NEC guests and said that Daet is very pleased to host the PLDT International Cable Landing Station which is being constructed in Barangay Bagasbas in his municipality. This new PLDT cable station will house the ASE cable’s state-of-the-art fiber optic equipment and supervisory systems.

“Our municipality of Daet is very fortunate to host one of the most powerful and far-reaching telecommunications facilities not only in the country but the Asia-Pacific.”

“We are very excited that, as we welcome the ASE cable landing facilities, we are on the other hand repositioning our town to become the preferred location for telecommunications technology-dependent industries. We will now have PLDT which will make us viable and highly competitive,” Sarte Sarion said.

im Looking for a Daet thread but found none,anyways. i think this is the proper place to post this. maybe the Mod can add Daet to the title?
any historians? clarify if this is true, for the sake of Philippine and Bicol history.

The province of Albay, which is strategically located in the center of the region, is home to the world famous Mount Mayon with its perfect cone shape. Legazpi City, also in Albay and is called the Gateway City of Bicol, is the regional center. On the northernmost part of the region is the province of Camarines Norte whose capital, Daet, holds the distinction of being the town to erect the first monument of the country's national hero, Jose Rizal.

i have no idea, if this is true. then does our History Books recognize this ? will the future generation know? im in college now, wish i had known this.

Camarines Norte: A stroll through history
By: Amadís Ma. Guerrero
Philippine Daily Inquirer



A walk in and around Daet, capital of Camarines Norte, is a stroll through history, a heritage mini-tour. There are historical churches, museums, landmarks and monuments to the past.

In Paracale, a town that sits on gold (said to be stolen by a former president), is the Church of Our Lady of Candelaria, which is celebrating its 400th anniversary. The parish has huge adobe blocks and strong shafts of hardwood cut from the forests during Spanish times.

The story is that Our Lady fought off invading Moros and her finger was cut off. A gold finger (shades of James Bond) was placed on her hand but this always fell off.

Our Lady would not receive the substitute gold finger, and the paint would always peel off. And so the icon was left minus one finger.
