Batangas Hollywood sign on Taal Volcano proposed

The provincial council of Batangas has reportedly approved a resolution to erect a Hollywood-inspired signage with the word “Batangas” across Taal Volcano.

The font would be just like the iconic Hollywood signage in Los Angeles, California. The idea was conceived by Batangas governor Vilma Santos-Recto. Aside from the Batangas sign, the tourism office of the province also suggested that floating restaurants or fish pens can be set up on Taal Lake in a layout that would form the Batangueño expression “Ala Eh.” The news was met with disbelief and ridicule from Filipinos in social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
