Taytay in Palawan has signage ala Hollywood

The town of Taytay with its own "Hollywood" sign

And Governor Vilma Santos of Batangas is thinking of putting a huge Batangas signage on Binintiang Malaki in Taal? The remote northern town of Taytay in Palawan did it first. The huge sign has been constructed on the side of a mountain, cutting down the patch of forest just to place it.

I was indeed shocked and at the same time, smirking at the rather curious view which was quite unexpected in this part of the country. Oh well, its not only tacky, another gayagaya mentality put into action.

I help businesses get qualified leads and more sales thru better FB Ads. I'm also a Travel and Architecture/Interiors photographer, blogger and writer based in Cebu, the Philippines.

A true blue Cebuano, I make stunning images and meaningful stories. My work has been published in various coffee table books as well as local and international publications Geo (Germany), Sunday Times Magazine (London) and has frequently done photo assignments for Mabuhay, an inflight magazine.

My personal Photography work has been exhibited around Asia and Europe including Paris in France, Germany, The Netherlands, South Korea, China and around the ASEAN regional capitals.

I am a peripatetic traveler and have been to all 81 Philippine provinces and abroad.

  2. Who would expect that a remote mountainous town in an island province of Palawan is actually having a Hollywood fever pala. Is this a recent visit of yours to Taytay sir? This is town has a future.

    Frankly, I don’t like that resort. cemento lang ang alam nilang gamitin, not harmonizing the place with their resort
