You can help make The Philippines a better place to stay but you as citizens must "OWN" your barangay. The "pride of ownership" must be embedded in every individual.

  • The barangay system is what makes the Philippines, the community oriented country of the world. The core LGU (Local Government Unit) of the Philippines is the barangay. Each barangay has its Chairman (captain) and council who are elected into office every three years by popular vote of the community registered voters. Take the time to read the 130 pages of: The Local Government Code of The Philippines
    • It is unfortunate that the Dept of Tourism(DOT) and other governmental agencies do not promote the name of the barangay. Only the name of the municipality/city or province is mentioned.
    • Even most business do not put the name of the barangay on their webpages, business cards, business letters and banners. What they seem to forget is the fact that they can't get or renew a business license without first getting a barangay clearance. Yes even companies like PLDT, BPI, SMmall or PAL. Now that is a shame.
    • Even the president of the Philippines intentionally or unintentionally ignores the barangay. The Malacañang palace is located within a barangay. The barangay of Barangay 643, San Miguel, Manila. But the official address of Malacañang does not mention the name of Barangay 643, it only shows this:

Current Address shows:

  • 1000 Jose P Laurel Sr, San Miguel
  • Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines

The address should be this:

  • 1000 Jose P Laurel Sr, Barangay 643, San Miguel
  • Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines
  • Help update the webpage of the barangay you grew up in. Each page that we provide is an interactive page whereby any registered user may edit or update.
  • If you do not wish to register, you may still update your barangay via email to: or Via Facebook by posting your updates or pictures to the OBI Facebook Page

Republic of The Philippines Arts and Culture of The Philippines History of The Philippines
This is the one thing that separates us from the rest of the world - our colorful and lively culture that makes us distinctly Filipino. This includes traditions, language, arts, etc. which are found in museums, churches and galleries, found within the heart of the key cities.
Most provinces have their own identifying folk dances too wherein they showcase the elegance and beauty of the way we do things, the way we dress, the way we see things as shown in different paintings, as we have been influenced by events that happened in our history.
That’s not all. When you have lived in the Philippines long enough, you’ll know that it’s not an exaggeration to say there is a town that’s celebrating its fiesta every single day...>>>Read More

We did extensive studies about the history of the City of Zamboanga. We also started an online Chavacano Dictionary to propagate the official dialect of Zamboanga City.

In 2009 we decided to make the City of Zamboanga the portal to the Philippines via the internet so we coined the phrase ", the Portal to The Philippines".

Nobody else in the world has this.
