Tabuk is the capital of kalinga now a city, where the brave people are living. so therefore, we should act as true brave to counter these problems affecting the citihood of tabuk. I disagree to those non-sense comments denouncing the legitimacy of how tabuk become city just because of the various crimes happened. we have to say good bye to the old dictum, history are just history. we must do something for the betterment of our very own city, stop criticizing but instead be a part in solving those inimical acts as such killngs, robberies etc...literaly we can't see tabuk city a peaceful place but we can feel for as long as the Kalinga people will established a good rapport among each others. lastly, we must remain vigilant to safeguard this youngest city in the phil in order to create a physically and psychologically secure environment conducive to economic development. GODSPEED!!!!

im glad that tabuk is now one of the cities in the philippines.
dont try to disagree but instead try to accept. it's just the beginning for the city to be known in the philippines and by the tourists around the world. you have there lots of beautiful spots to offer for the tourists. i saw that in kalingatambayan.multiply.com. i think it's a site built by one of the citizens living in the city. i'm amazed of what he's doing for the city to be acknowledged by others. it's nice for you to have a member of tribe like him. be part of the team building a peaceful and friendly city to live and visit. Godbless..

-im just a concerned citizen (not living in the city) reacting in the bad comments that i have read in this article. i know that place and i've been there many times. it's for the reason that i have relatives there and a grandmother who chose to stay there rather to live with us here in manila. i won't stop visiting tabuk and i will try to visit the beautiful spots the city can offer.
