Made with love and hard work, Marlyn's Puto Special is one of the main suppliers of puto calasiao (sticky steamed rice cake) in Manaoag. Remember the early days of just chilling with your family on a picnic, a gathering or a fiesta that won't be complete without puto on the side. Experience how these are made by heading at Aling Marlyn's Puto plantation. Observe how her family help each other in cooking a thousand pieces of puto every day, that is only from the minimum orders they get on a day to day basis. Because of her exceptional hard work, and being a hands-on entre-Pinay, she had already bought their own house and lot and a tricycle and she plans to expand the place for their plantation.
Entering the vicinity of Laoac, you will notice cylindrical silos that was actually a storage of feeds for cows in 5-6 hectare land. The government built a dairy farm under the municipality's name to have enough supply of dairy products for pre-schoolers and elders. They are continuously putting an effort to develop it by planning to turn it into a multi-purpose farm. That includes a pasalubong center, training centers and a pick and pay organic farm. They are also planning to have restaurants inside the farm for the convenience of the tourist that will come here. Currently, they are breeding cows and waiting for another 50 heads from National Dairy authority.
Binalonan's home to their town's social and civic events. Established in the '90s with the help of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and people who donated during their town fiesta. Before it was just equipped for sports tournament. Through innovation and support from the government, Ramon J. Guico Sports and Civic Center was renovated and was just recently inagurated led by DILG secretary Ismael Sueno last February 13, 2017. After the renovations, not only sports tournament is being held on the gym but also presentations and plays, conferences organized by Binalonan Health Workers.
