Naga SMILES to the World


The “Naga SMILES to the World” logo is composed of the two baybayin Naga characters, "na" and "ga".

"Na", shaped like a mountain, provides a strong foundation for the Narra tree which grew abundantly along the Naga River while a zigzag line denotes majestic Malabsay Falls.

"Ga", shaped like a farmer's plow, is symbolic of the Nagueño's agricultural roots and hardworking personality.

The baybayin Naga characters rest on a wave-like element which represents the Naga River and the serpent, which is read in Sanskrit as "naga".

Naga SMILES to the World!
A new brand of Naga

By Alec Santos

            The City of Naga has always had a penchant for pioneering groundbreaking programs minus the astronomical cost. In Naga, “Doing more with less” as former mayor and now DILG Sec. Jesse Robredo used to say, has become an integral part of governance.

            Proving that Naga has what it takes to become a city poised for even greater things, Mayor John G. Bongat introduced his flagship program, “Naga SMILES to the World!,” during his first day on the job as the city’s chief executive.

The brilliance of the SMILES program can best be described as an effort that reinforces the city’s being the regional center of trade and industry, education, and governance innovations. Even before taking his post as the city mayor, Mayor Bongat and several city officials were already cracking heads to map out Naga’s future. Despite many sleepless nights and restive discussions, the SMILES concept was finalized. It would be an undertaking of massive importance to the city, its people, and the region.

The acronym SMILES symbolizes Naga’s goals of strengthening its position as a fast-growing progressive city in Bicol and in Southern Luzon. Each letter stands for the Bongat administration’s six defined, economically-driven promotional goals: S (See Naga), (Meet in Naga), I (Invest in Naga), L (Live in Naga), (Experience Naga), and (Study in Naga).

SEE Naga

The letter “S” stands for SEE Naga, which encourages both domestic and foreign tourists to come to Naga to enjoy its many natural and historico-cultural attractions.

Unbeknownst to many locals, Naga offers a wide variety of natural attractions in upper barangays such as Panicuason. For years, the Malabsay Falls has hogged the headlines when in fact residents in Panicuason have enjoyed other falls, streams, and natural pools like the Big Stone area. A perfect spot for rappelling, zip-lining, or just plain swimming, Big Stone, when developed, can offer local and foreign tourists alike new extreme sports and adventure challenges.

As one of the oldest cities in the archipelago, Naga has a rich and colorful history dating back to the pre-Hispanic era. Even before the arrival of the Spaniards, the riverside community was already flourishing trading hub for many Indian, Muslim, and Chinese traders. The three centuries under Spanish rule also introduced a new form of arts and culture to the city that would ultimately define its people. Just recently, the city government and the Naga Preservation Society embarked on a campaign to formally recognize and promote several historical sites across the city, proving that Naga remembers well its past as a window to the future.

MEET in Naga

            The City of Naga’s unique position in Southern Luzon as the center of trade and commerce is slowly transforming it into the country’s Convention City. The presence of new hotels and convention halls that cater to gatherings of different sizes has also convinced the city government to promote Naga as the city to meet in, hence MEET in Naga.

            Interested parties can choose from 33 different venues to suit their needs. Of these, five offer convention halls that can accommodate more than a thousand delegates and guests. The slated opening of the new Metro Naga Coliseum this coming September will also add 10,000 seats to Naga’s existing capacity, bringing the total number of delegates that the city can accommodate around 19,260 at any given time.

            The Metro Naga Coliseum’s unique location in the middle of the Central Business District 2 is also expected to be a crowd-drawer. With large shopping malls and the central bus terminal just a stone throw’s away from the massive building, tourists and visitors from across the region and even from other regions can easily experience Naga at its finest.

INVEST in Naga

            As the undisputed trading hub of the Bicol Region, the City of Naga has enjoyed substantial economic growth in the last two decades alone. Despite its position in the region and the country’s economic map, Naga is not content with resting on its laurels. The city government is aware that for any economic progress to be sustained, there has to be a constant effort to draw in investments. Thus, the INVEST in Nagaportion of the SMILES program was incorporated.

            Common business logic dictates that the private sector prefers a local government that is both cooperative and effective. Investors are naturally drawn to a government that is business-friendly. To address this need, city officials in the previous administration of then Mayor Jesse Robredo established the Naga City Investment Board (NCIB) to assist potential investors and to promote the city as a perfect market for investors, thereby spurring economic activity and generating employment.

            Under the new administration of Mayor Bongat, the NCIB has been directed to intensify efforts in finding new investors to accelerate the momentum that Naga is enjoying.

LIVE in Naga

            They say that the best place is one that you never wish to leave.

            This is exactly the idea behind LIVE in Naga. After evaluating Naga’s “liveability”, it was found that the city offers plenty of attractions for migrants, families, and professionals to come and reside in Naga. Not only is it the perfect place to work in, but it is also the best city to start a family. Quality public and private schools provide children with the best form of education they deserve. A significant number of housing subdivisions and villages offer different types of homes to families with different needs. Medical centers and practitioners abound in the city, able to provide complete, state-of-the-art health services.

            LIVE in Naga aims to market the city as the perfect community to live in because of modern amenities, the low cost of living as well as peace of mind and security. Despite its growing economy, the cost of living and the cost of raising a family is relatively lower in Naga than in other sprawling urban centers. This translates to more people calling the City of Naga their home. Naga’s peaceful setting also attracts many families looking for a safe and secure community to call their own.

EXPERIENCE Naga

            For almost two decades, the City of Naga was synonymous to innovations in governance principles. And these trailblazing programs and policies were not only on paper. The citizens of Naga themselves are aware of these innovations and experience their impact on their lives on a daily basis. Local government units across the country are now trying to replicate the city’s successes by way of study visits or “Lakbay Aral” trips to EXPERIENCE Naga.

            By strengthening already existing programs and by introducing new ones to further improve the delivery of government services, the Bongat administration hopes to sustain efforts in promoting Naga as the center for effective local governance. This has led to more local government units and agencies heading to the city to study its best practices. Last August 25, the City Government added a new award for being the most outstanding local government unit in the region to its more than 150 national and international awards.

STUDY in Naga

            Naga has been the center of education since the Spanish colonial rule. It is home to one of the oldest Catholic seminaries, the Holy Rosary Minor Seminary, as well as the oldest normal school for girls in Asia, the Universidad de Sta. Isabel. In recent decades, however, there has been an influx of students studying various fields of academic interests like science, the arts, and computer technology. Capitalizing on this strength, the City Government has placed emphasis on drawing in more students, both local and foreign to STUDY in Naga.

            Mayor Bongat envisions a Naga that can be called a University Town because of the sheer number of students studying in the city’s 4 universities (including Central Bicol State University of Agriculture in nearby Pili town), 12 colleges, and more than 20 technical-vocational schools. Students can also choose from a variety of courses and degrees ranging from agriculture to banking, and to digital animation.

            Different people look at the City of Naga in different ways. Tourists SEE Naga as the perfect destination. Companies and organizations MEET in Naga because it is fast-becoming a Convention City. A businessman decides to INVEST in Naga because of the profitable business climate. Families decide to call the city their home and LIVE in Naga because it offers them peace of mind. Government officials and employees flock to the city to EXPERIENCE Naga. And Students head to the regional center of education to STUDY in Naga.

            Taken as a whole, Naga offers only the best SMILES to residents, tourists, investors, and the world. This is the very essence of the “Naga SMILES to the world!” branding – to proudly announce to the world what the City of Naga has with warm Nagueño SMILES.

Venus Raj - 4th Runner Up Ms. Universe 2010

Despite despair from yesterday's incident, Bicol has once again made the Philippines proud through Ms. Venus Raj's 4th Runner Up Winning

Congrats Venus!
Congrats Bato, CamSur!
Congrats Bicol!
Congrats Philippines!

Prayers for My Country, My Philippines

I love my city, I love my country. For almost almost three years now I've been promoting our city at my own pace and my little efforts by blogging pictures and recent updates. This post will be my very first post that contains a national issue. No matter how we promote our city/country, glitches will always be part of every government.


Approximately two days from now is a 3-day accreditation for one of our colleges in my workplace and as expected were all busy inside the office preparing our documents and the physical vicinity. Unknowingly, while we were there throwing out papers and unnecessary stuffs in our stockroom, peoples' lives were also trashed out at Quirino Grandstand in Manila. I went home for lunch but didn't even try to turn on the television as usual. I just ate lunch, that's all that I had in mind. The rest of the afternoon was history just like any normal afternoon inside the office. Earlier this evening, I just learned from a colleague (fromTGIF) around 7:45, that there's a hostage crisis in Manila. When I reached home, my father was tuned in to a local news network, so I asked for updates about the hostage crisis. I got shocked when my father changed from one channel to another with the Breaking News captioned on every international media channel where it says "Manila Hostage Crisis". I got totally disheartened by what I saw. 


For almost 13 hours of fame, globally to be exact, we were at the limelight. The crisis is the word of the mouth and the trending topic in almost all of the social networks online. We are living in a third world country, it's an accepted reality alright, but what has happened today just made it worse. This is a challenge to P-Noy and Sec. Robredo. We all want to be in CNN, BBC, Aljazeera etc etc.. but not in that way right? We cannot blame the media, it's just their plain work, nothing more nothing less. With this reality, my dear fellow Filipinos this is a wake up call for us all to learn how co-exist with one another. Care for others' business, live within your reach but mind your own business. Fame out of what?? I'd rather not say the word.  We don't know the full details yet about the incident but for sure people will be pointing fingers at someone by tomorrow and the next few days to come. *Sigh* Remember that if you point your finger to someone, the remaining four is pointing back to you. 


The crisis today will have a domino effect to all the other sectors in our country. And for that I pray for the following:


  • I pray for those who were killed and the survivors.
  • I pray for the law enforcers and our government.
  • I pray for all of us Filipinos, especially the OFW'so that they may stay strong and be prepared for any labeling that may happen.
  • I pray for the media to not to over sensationalize what happened today, speak out truth but I pray for kindness.
  • I pray for other countries to have an open mind. The Philippines is not a perfect country but we do not like to be labeled on the passport "Not valid for travel in the Philippines" 
This is a time for all of us Filipinos to pray for our country, no matter where you're from, no matter what your religion is, we need prayers to heal the scars that the incident had caused today. We need other countries in order to grow. We live in only one planet. Our government is young. The Philippines is not perfect, we live in a third world country but we love our country with our hearts in a first-world kind of way.. no matter what.. we love our country.
