I speak for the trees. And I am glad that I stood up for the trees along Narra Avenue because Covid-19 happened and we were locked down in our homes. If we didn’t have trees, what a gray, polluted, and depressing time it could have been!
Bacolod City is gearing up for the Modified GCQ or Modified General Community Quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic. Mayor Evelio Leonardia already announced this after a meeting with the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF).
Since we were subjected to 45 days of no work, no pay, as well as restricted movements, we have to be creative in meeting our needs (and some wants). This is how the Bacolod Barter Community was born. It is now our new normal in business trading, which may continue for quite a long time.
Dr. Andrew L. Tan, chairman of the Alliance Global Group, was recently named Honorary Mayor of Bacolod City. He was also claimed as an Adopted Son of the city. The Alliance Global Group is the mother company of Megaworld, which is now hailed as the largest real estate developer in Bacolod.
