‘Hooray for Hollywood’ on Taal Volcano Island
by Jerome Balinton, Inquirer Southern Luzon
It was something only a movie star could have conceived.
Why not put up a towering “Batangas” sign on Taal Volcano island similar to the “Hollywood” sign in Los Angeles, California?
The provincial council approved on October 5 a resolution supporting the idea of Governor Vilma Santos-Recto, the award-winning actress, to erect a hard-to-miss landmark and potential tourism draw, according to Vice Governor Mark Leviste II.
Tagaytay City Mayor Abraham Tolentino, however, questioned the Hollywood-inspired design for the island, flatly saying: “Why put up a Batangas sign? It won’t help.”
“People, while sipping a cup of coffee, will just say that the view is more beautiful from Tagaytay without that sign,” Tolentino said with a hint of a warning.

Sa puso niya!
The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.
Every choice, each action, spoken word, and wrong turn, provides an experience that can be learned from.
The ability to self-reflect and grow however, rests on you.
It rests on an open mind and an open heart.
There is no shame in making mistakes and taking wrong turns.
It is the adversity that shapes and molds who we are.
It is the bad experiences that teach us what to avoid in the future, and realize what we have taken forgranted. Making mistakes is a blessing in disguise.
Do not let them disempower or dishearten you.
Rise above them.
I want a person who comes into my life by accident, but stays on purpose.
