Baguio Infrastructure: Baguio City, Islands Philippines

Baguio City can be reached from the lowland areas via three (3) national roads namely; Quirino Highway better known as Naguilian Road, Kennon Road and Marcos Highway. It can also be reached from the northern highland areas via the Ambuclao Road and the Halsema Highway.

These highways and major arteries lead centrally to the Central Business District (CBD) which makes the traffic circulation system very inefficient.

The concentration of urban services at the Central Business District is the major cause of traffic congestion. This problem is aggravated by uncontrolled parking within the Central Business District and the lack of designated parking areas.

According to the Land Transportation Office, there are a total 17,210 vehicles registered in the city in 1996, 68.94% of these total are private cars, while 27.43% are public utility vehicles. The remaining 3.63% are government-owned. Many public utility vehicles are in poor condition and contribute to air pollution.

Mineral deposits are found in the city for both metallic and non-metallic. Within the city limits, metallic deposits of gold and silver are present, while non-metallic resources that includes silica and limestone also abound. It is believed, that an additional 535,732 metric tons of limestone deposits can still be mined at the Benguet Corporation area at Irisan. There are also positive indications of gold deposits at the Kias area.

Pulutan Philippines Cuisine

Pulutan (from the Filipino word pulutin which literally means "something that is picked up") is a term roughly analogous to the English term "finger food". Originally, it was a snack accompanied with liquor or beer but has found its way into Philippine cuisine as appetizers or, in some cases, main dishes, as in the case of sisig.

Southern Philippine Cuisine

In Mindanao, the southern part of Palawan island, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi, dishes are richly flavored with the spices common to Southeast Asia: turmeric, coriander, lemon grass, cumin, and chillies — ingredients not commonly used in the rest of Filipino cooking. Being free from Hispanicization, the cuisine of the indigenous Moro and Lumad peoples of Mindanao and the Sulu archipelago has much in common with the rich and spicy Malay cuisines of Malaysia and Brunei, as well as Indonesian and Thai cuisines.
