LA PURISIMA CONCEPCION, homes clustered around a street the Bogohanon’s call Visayan. The barangay holds dominion over the south-western half of the Bogo Public Plaza. This barangay will most likely be the final battleground where mother nature makes her last and ultimately futile stand against urban development in Poblacion Bogo City.

“BALIDBID”, a local word that refers to trickling water. It is also the marsh/swamp no-man’s-land that make up the border between LPC and two other barangays. Already a bus road runs through it. Score 1 for development. A billboard announced the rise of some human structure. Yolanda took that billboard down. And the score currently stands at 1:1.
