Sto. Tomas, the first Batangas town to be reached from Manila, is being positioned as the province’s Religious and Agri-Eco Tourism Gateway, Municipal Development Council (MDC) of Sto. Tomas, Batangas told ShoppersGuide.com.ph, and it is for good reason. Sto. Tomas is home to the National Shrine of Sto. Padre Pio, the monument for Philippine hero Gen. Miguel Malvar, the best bulalo in the country, and notable natural attractions like Mt. Malipunyo and Mt. Makiling via Sipit trail.

The MDC recently drafted an Executive-Legislative Agenda (ELA) for the next three years for Sto. Tomas to live up to the status. The ELA, which was done in consultation with the private sector and civil society, focused on agriculture and livestock; tourism and cultural heritage; and entrepreneurship, business, and industry promotion.


WEATHER NEWS


It’s a cloudy week for Batangas.

September 12 is a holiday but the rains “have decided not to take the day off.” But if it is any consolation, the chance of rain occurrence during the holiday is only at 40 percent and will last for only short durations. For the rest of the week, a temperature between 25°C (77°F) and 32°C (89°F) with a real feel of between 28°C (82°F) and 40°C (104°F) is forecasted. However, despite the warm weather that the forecasted temperature brings, Batangas will still have showers and thunderstorms, which can last for two to three hours for each.

The chances of rain are 40 t to 60 percent except during the midweek with only 25 percent chance. The cloudy skies notwithstanding, applying of sun block lotion is still a must as protection from sun rays passing through the clouds.
