Brief History of Barangay Balas

The word “Balas” is a Kapampangan word which means Sand. Barangay Balas was a former sitio of Barangay Potrero. The sitio was separated by the Pasig Potrero River, due to the remoteness of the sitio to its mother Barangay. Sitio folks from Balas were deprived from enjoying the activities of the Barangay during fiesta likewise barrio folks from Potrero fail to reach Sitio Balas in the procession and parade. For this reason, in late fifties, Sitio Balas was separated from Barangay Potrero and was created as another barangay in Bacolor.

Barangay Balas as a whole is an agricultural place. The barangay enjoys the rich land which is suitable for farming for all kinds of agricultural products. Due to the catastrophe brought about by the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo, the people of Balas were forced to evacuate the barrio. They were scattered to different resettlement areas, namely, Bulaon and Pandacaqui.

Population: 219 based on Census 2010 of the National Statistics Office.

BRIEF HISTORY OF BARANGAY CABALANTIAN

Barangay Cabalantian, otherwise known as “BALANTI” by our aborigines and “SAN JOSE” by our religious folks has been a very progressive and peaceful place to live because of its rich natural resources, ideal location and peace loving people. Its first name was Pulung-Balanti. Legend has it that when the civilized Malays settled in the province, the region was thickly forested. A barangay led by Datu Ormoc cleared and settled a small part of the province. The Datu had a lovely young daughter named Balanti who fell in love with a young man named Pulung. The two lovers had their frequent meetings on the bank of a brook flowing through the place. When Datu Ormoc heard of their engagement, he immediately ordered Balanti to break their engagement and marry Datu Tahil the man of his choice. Greatly disappointed and being true to her lover, Balanti committed suicide. When Pulung heard of this, he went to their meeting place and killed himself with his own dagger. The two lovers were buried side by side on the very spot where they had their precious moments. Soon after, a tree sprung over their grave. The settler named it balanti. It grew widely and occupied both banks of the brook. Since then the settlement was called “Pulung-Balanti” in memory of the two unfortunate lovers. During the early part of the Spanish regime, Captain Francisco de Jesus, a native of the place became the head of the town. He changed the two word name of the barrio to CABALANTIAN. Three sitios, Gugu, Banlic and Palawe comprise the barrio. The Catholic Chapel, constructed during the Spanish regime started as bamboo and nipa structure. It has undergone several reconstruction and repairs until it has become one of a concrete and wood with iron roofing. Another important landmark is a two-stoned bridge constructed during the Spanish time and which is still usable. Cabalantian has two elementary schools, the Cabalantian Elementary School and the Eliseo-Belen Elementary School. Both were started almost at the same time when the Americans introduced public education in the Philippines. In 1882, during the American occupation the barrio was visited by destructive typhoons and earthquakes destroying houses and properties. During the wars of 1900 Lt. Andres Serrano, A native of Bacolor and some of his soldiers were killed in action, in a battle between Filipinos and the Americans at sitio Banlic. In the early part of January 1942 during World War II a short encountered between Japanese and the retreating Filipino-Americans forces occurred in the barrio. The Japanese built their trenches in Sitio Banlic. Fortunately, no civilian casualties resulted. Cabalantian is famous for its “puto seco”, “tamales”, for clean houses and well-kept yards. It is the birthplace of his Excellency, Msgr. ALEJANDRO Olalia, and D.D. B.ishop of Lipa. The first “teniente del barrio” was Mr. Roman Romero. Some of the original families are the Mirandas, Olalias, Davids and De Jesus. Don Bosco Academy of Pampanga with elementary and high school grades and Don Bosco Seminary were once located in the barrio. At present it was transferred to Mabalacat. In a” Clean-Up Week” contest conducted through the joint initiative of the Provincial Health Office and the Office of the Superintendent of Schools of Pampanga for the cleanest barrio school, Cabalantian Elementary School place second in 1966. It was a sad and shocking circumstance happened in October 1, 1995 that devastating lahar from Mt. Pinatubo destroyed the whole barangay and damaged billions worth of private and public properties.
