Angeles Tourism Office discourages the use of Kapampangan

In a battle of the bands sponsored by the Angeles City Tourism Office (ACTO), the rule makers required the Grand Finalists to make and play an original jingle which can be used by the said office as Tourism theme (aside from the other song, which is supposed to be a San Miguel Beer jingle).

The rule they strictly enforced regarding language in the Angeles tourism theme song is that only English, Tagalog, and a pidgin of the two ('Taglish') are allowed.

When I asked them via phone, "Kapampangan is not allowed?"



"That's our rule."

If you ask the ACTO people now that the issue is becoming highlighted, they would say that the prohibition of Kapampangan jingles for Angeles tourism is because of the San Miguel sponsorship -- something which I find very unbelievable because:

1) The event is also by ACTO, not only by San Miguel. SMB The Battle of the Bands usually requires the finalists to perform one original composition, one SMB jingle, and one remake. But this year, probably due to ACTO, the remake was replaced with an Angeles Tourism jingle.

2) It's the Angeles Tourism jingle; what does San Miguel Beer care about that (unless they're too imperialistically pesky)?

3) That's not the reason ACTO initially gave me when I asked them on telephone. They just said blankly that it's their rule. Not SMB's, but their rule.

When I informed them about the Kapampangan tourism jingle of Pampanga ('Malaus Ka Pampanga') and the Tagalog-Kapampangan jingle of San Fernando City ('San Fernando, Kaluguran Da Ka'), they just said, "Ours is different."

Yeah, theirs is an imperialized type, no trace of love for Kapampangan.

The issue here is not about the presence of Tagalog and English. But the questionable and heart-grinding fact is that they prohibited the use of Kapampangan in the Kuliat jingle. It is sad because I have musician friends who could have spurred out Kapampangan songs, titles such as "Indung Kapampangan (Mother Kapampangan)," "Tumaila Ding Angeles (Angels' Lullaby)," and "Tagulele Para King Kuliat (Serenade For Kuliat)." But no, they had to be in English and/or Tagalog.

So once again, Kapampangan has been treated a stranger in its own land. And the agent of this is none other than ACTO. Great job.

Should you want to give them a call: (045) 322 0507. Pamela "Pie" Flores is the Chairperson.

[*Kuliat is the former name of Angeles. It's a tree/plant.]

we can all conclude ACTO doesn't really get the idea of having their office here, i mean what's Angeles Tourism when its not about "angeles" or "kapampangan" having ACTO is all for show and for government friends to have jobs and connections, its all for freaking "show".. if you guys have seen the people who work there ryt? lolz ^___^ i rest my fcuking case, those guys are idiots.

I guess we should inform the public that Angeles is in Pampanga.We should file a petition paper to scrap the organization and go against any anti-PAMPANGA especially in our homeland.

I've always liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to well-wishing of virtuous spend space staring at it as a cut of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to free stress and decent deem in the air nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in place of of dolls and cars I've eternally sedate more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, harmonious boxes etc. So I was most charmed when I establish the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Shine Presentation Laser Top Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from answerable to the Toys section. It's like a melodic box, a spinning better, and a moonlight divulge all rolled into one. Which is prodigious diversion! The gyroscope pleasure spin for around a minute. The laser light pretension with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a rather unique tiny that my friends be suffering with also been most amused with.

My dogs are also fair outr?prevalent the laser gyroscope I got from They always follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser light show, and also because it produces music. But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but virtuous save up following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also pretty amused alongside it. Sometimes it's moral to take entertaining toys around the lineage so that you can pull out the small on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you open to fit out foodstuffs or fall heir to changed. The gyroscope is inseparable such play with with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a intent plot on it, and produces a gegenschein accompany with red, downcast, and unripened colours. Pit oneself against a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser luminosity show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that renowned but decorous adequacy to consider any supplementary roomer to the house. The gyroscope is red and black, making it look extraordinarily cold, and somewhat macho with that dragon imprint.

The music luminescence make clear gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also acclimatized this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy chore of decorating the pension elbow-room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser insight expose produces a ideal effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a degree mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, by the way, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my default shopping placement for all gifts and ideas for emotional occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser light make clear gyroscope can perhaps be a great Christmas gift for the toddler or in spite of the mollycoddle! Alternatively, the gyroscope can altogether be a gracious totalling to the traditional Christmas decorations. I can presume placing it near the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests succeed in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my function yet again!
