In the bosom of the archipelago lies a province where the sun shines brightly among the cheerful smiles of an unwavering people:
optimistic to face changes,
eager to embrace developments,
enthusiastic to realize advancements,
ready to brave challenges,
and confident to endure hardships.
Here emerges a land of diverse beauty and culture all creating a kaleidoscope of skills, talents, minds, and spirit- NEGROS ORIENTAL.
The vigor of the Oriental Negrenses thrusts the confidence of the province to host the 2013 Palarong Pambansa. Like a phoenix, we rise bravely from the devastation of Sendong and the 6.9 magnitude earthquake - greatly showing the resiliency and capacity to withstand the odds that come our way.
Through the years Negros Oriental has evolved to its progressive state through its own initiative, hard work, and resourcefulness. It was able to build facilities, amenities, and other infrastructure projects almost entirely on its own. What more if help from the national government comes pouring into our basins?
The answer lies in Palarong Pambansa 2013.
Since the Palarong Pambansa started in 1948 as the Bureau of Public Schools-Interscholastic Athletics Association then became the Palarong Pambansa in 1976 up to this time, it was never been held in Negros Oriental. Now that the province has declared its bid, the excitement of the Negrenses is insurmountable.
When the seed of the idea was lodged, little by little, it sprouted eager leaves of enthusiasm and determination to prepare the province for the national event. The Oriental Negrenses joined hands and exerted efforts to have quality playing venues, state-of-the-art facilities in a place that can be considered home away from home.
The little seed is now fully grown. Yes, the province is ready to bring the Palarong Pambansa in our soils. Yes, the province can!
Here in Negros Oriental we value your convenience and will definitely give you the best of a province where the sun shines dazzlingly like the warmth and hospitality of its people.
Experience the wonders of the sea, sand, smiles, and spirit amidst the rolling backdrop of the Cuernos de Negros.
Welcome to Negros Oriental, the best place under the sun.
