History of Boalan, Zamboanga City
The story goes that during the Spanish era, a group of Spanish soldiers came upon this place and they saw a small nipa hut which happened to be inhabited by a Chinese. When they approached the Chinese, the soldiers inquired about the name of the place, the Chinese who hardly understand Spanish replied by uttering the word “bolang” which means in Chinese language as “no people”, thinking that he was being asked about the other people living in the neighborhood. That time rare are the individuals living in the place. Hence, the Spaniards took it as the answer to their question and even went to the extent of understanding it as “Boalan” instead of Bolang. Then and there, the word Boalan sprung as the name of this Barangay.
The majority of the people from Boalan can trace back their lineage to the original Zamboangueños, Filipino by ancestry, professing Roman Catholic religion and their medium of communication is Chavacano. Most of the people are engaged in farming as their means of livelihood. The people are educated in English schools. Sports is their main recreation. The Baranagy itself is a tourist spot because it is the only Barangay where the rice fields are planted all year round. The Barangay is also famous for its Inland Water Resort with its swimming pool and other tourist oriented facilities.

- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.

Your Story about Boalan, Zamboanga City
- Robert Revillas
There used to be an old green house along km 7 national highway, east coast road, just across the vast land properties of the Fernandez’s. This was a remnant of our decades long family stature. Old memories of which, will forever engrave into my thoughts. It was here, where I spent some of the best & most memorable years of my life.
Auntie Cora used to own a small sari-sari store on the ground floor. My cousins, Ronald(now on a livestock business, Chochoy(now a prominent college professor) & Rosalyn(now a successful Nurse in Chicago USA), and I, used to acquaint on the patio of Auntie Cora’s place, which is just adjacent to her store. Sometimes we find ourselves sipping a late afternoon ginataang-nangka merienda. Uncle Niong was usually our chef. I remember our relative-neighbors, the Bella, the Enriquez, the Miguel & the Limen. Life was very simple then, no rushing, no worries & no stress.
BOALAN is & has always been an enchanting place. Its divine beauty is inexplicable. One can only experience such elation if wondered deep within its inner environs. The PREZA & the TUBURAN were just few of the rivers & streams I often go for a bath. Have you ever experienced during your solace moment, on the profound silence of the day, chanting by the mystical songs of the birds, surrounded by audiences of remarkable trees & bamboos, under the orchestra sound of water-flowing stream? Well, try visiting TUBURAN, its ravishing mystery will haunt you for a lifetime. I’m just not sure if the place is still the same, Fifteen years ago.
Thank you Robert. : Webmaster
