I was out quickly at the agreed time and txtd I would just roam around the church, plaza and city hall areas while they had breakfast. The reply was a serious “NO u hv 2b here n listen 2d briefng, bsides sum1 here can tell u all about Balanga”. Gosh! So I heeded! And did get quite a story from one of the friends about the city's central district.
Same thing with our city hall which was a beautiful old municipal hall and ditto our city plaza, which, as you can see is even undergoing another wave of facelifts. Ewan ko ba, since this place became a city, the authorities seem to be in a mad rush to transform it from a flintstones to a jetsons. and the good doctor ended that rolling his eyeballs as if in disgust. Thus, I had to rest my case hehe. He did follow that with at least our capitol is still about the same, but I guess you will have already seen it since that's just near your hotel. OMG I did not hehe!
It looked like there was nothing much to see at city center for me. At least according to my source, a long time resident and a practicing medical doctor. Or perhaps next time I come around, there'd be something else?! Maybe I should avoid the doctor hehe. Peace dok, peace!
