Hollywood for "Batangas"

If  Hollywood is for US , Batangas is for Philippines.

Last October 5, a resolution proposed by Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto has been approved by the provincial government of Batangas. The resolution and now a future project of Gov. Recto and his constituents, is, to put up a 14 meter "Batangas" sign at the Taal Volcano. 

Taal Volcano is a popular tourist spot located in Batangas. An active Volcano surrounded by a lake, Taal already recorded violent eruptions and now showing some signs of volcanic activity.

Vice Governor Mark Leviste II. said “It is not an out-of-this-world concept. It’s a simple development which can easily attract attention and even visitors to the area,” The sign will also serve as a confirmation that Taal Volcano is part of Batangas and not Tagaytay, although a great photographic view of Taal Volcano can be seen in Tagaytay.

The said idea is getting some attention, it is now a trending topic on twitter. Majority of the reactions are negative, maybe a good reference for those who are determine to pursue the idea.
