The Hablon handloom-weaving industry is making a comeback in Miagao, Iloilo. Hablon refers to the hand woven textile, made of jusi (banana fiber), piña (pineapple fiber), locally grown silk threads, cotton, rayon, and other indigenous materials that creates an attractive textile of emerald, lavender, pink, tangerine, and crimson colors. Traditionally known for products such as the multi-colored, checkered patadyong skirt, bandanas, and household items (mosquito nets, blankets, table runners, etc.), Hablon fabric is emerging into a versatile and unique textile, currently making waves in the Philippine and international haute couture particulary by designer Nono Palmos for Nora Aunor.

“The commitment to the trope of dreaming and dream-weaving proves less than wieldy, as well as less than effective: this otherwise promising trope doesn’t really take magical flight in this nativist drama (the gratingly untrained and audibly twangy T’boli dialogue being mouthed by the leads certainly doesn’t help its cause any), even as its figurative pursuit is visibly and eagerly indulged in by del Mundo, to the detriment of such basic narrative requisites as motivation and inner depth: to be frank, the characters in this film just aren’t ‘realized’ enough, for they act too much like the mythic ‘types’ that they are.”  (Read full review )

Sa isang napakalungkot na ikot ng tadhana, binayo ang mga bayan sa Davao Oriental at Compostela Valley ng napakalakas na bagyong Pablo, isang linggo bago ang aming itinakdang araw ng paglakbay. Dadaanan patungong Butuan ang mga lugar na ito. May mga agam-agam na ring pumasok sa aking isip kung dapat pa bang ituloy o hindi ang nasabing lakbay-aral, ngunit mainam na ring tinuloy ito at mas naging makabuluhan (para sa akin) ang byahe sa gitna ng lalim ng di-makitang sugat na natamo ng mga nasalanta. Bukod kasi sa pag-aaral ng mga nabubulok na liktao sa mga museo, lumagom ang diskurso sa misyon ng akademiya, lalo na ng agham tao, sa pagtuon ng pansin at pagtugon sa kapakanan ng mga taong mahihirap, naaapi, naisasaiwalat, at nakakalimutan, higit pa sa pansariling mga ambisyon. Ang mga wasak na mga bahay, taniman, gusaling pribado o publiko, kagubatan, sambahan, at pati na ang mga tulalang mga mata na nakatingala sa kawalan, ang nagsilbing pambungad at pangwakas na telon sa aming byahe. Pumasok sa isip ko (sa gitna ng Trento at San Franz) ang mga tanong: ‘ yung nabubulok na balangay ba ang dapat iahon o ang libo-libong nawalan ng pag-asa at kabuhayan sa taunang mga kalamidad na dumadaan? Ang nakaraan ba o ang hinaharap ang dapat pagtuunan ng pansin?’ O ‘di kaya’y sa parehong pagkakataon ay sadyang napakaikli lang talaga ng ating memorya?

The province’s terrain varies from flat, fertile plains to irregular landscape of wide valleys, scattered hills and extensive mountain ranges such as the Kitubod Range, Mt. Apo which forms the natural boundary between (North) Cotabato Province and Davao City and Davao del Sur Province and the Tuael Range, which joins the municipalities of Pres. Roxas, Magpet and Matalam. A big portion of the land of North Cotabato province is classified as upland with a topography ranging from level to nearly level to gently sloping to undulating; undulating to rolling; rolling to moderately steep; steep to very steep.  Areas with level to nearly level are found in Kabacan, Matalam, Libungan, Carmen, Pikit and parts of Tulunan, M’lang and Midsayap. The drainage condition in the province is generally poor with some portions classified as good to fair drainage. These conditions are mostly found along the plains and valleys.  In the upland areas the drainage conditions range from good to fair to excessive erosion as a result of massive forest destruction.
