Where are the Young Farmers and Fisherfolks in Abra?

The Farming and Fishery Problem

Senator Imee Marcos spent a day in Bangued, Abra last March 6 where she attended a Farmers and Fisherfolk Forum as special guest. Marcos insinuates that this is a problem because continuity would not be possible if there’s no work succession.

The Senator Encourages Local Travel

Tourist bans already take a toll on the tourism industry in major destinations of the country. It’s about time to facilitate more domestic travels. This can compensate for the lost income of the travel sector. The senator does not mind the risk of coronavirus at all. She continues to roam around nationwide to help and inspire people of all levels.

Dancing the Troubles Away

Senator Marcos gives justice to an impromptu dance performance. Manmanok is a dance that dramatizes three roosters from the Bago Tribe who compete against one another to be able to get the attention of a hen. It starts with each of the dancers holding an “ayob” or “allap” which is a small cloth. The background and meaning of this dance are evident. The male simulates a rooster trying to attract the attention of a hen while the female imitates the movements of a hen being circled by a rooster.
