Last weekend, together with some bloggers, the young and cool group of Northpine Land, Inc. (NLI) and Mr. Richard Burgos, the Director for Science and Technology Information Institute of the Department of Science and Technology, tapped us to rediscover some of Pampanga’s surviving treasure and talents that shed a bright and colorful inspiration to all of us.
