Sangay, Camarines Sur April 26, 2011  -  Starting May 1, 2011, Roll on/Roll off (Ro-Ro) vessels shall ply between Nato, Sangay and Guijalo, Caramoan along the coast of Lagonoy Gulf. This was revealed by Sangay Mayor Evelyn Fuentebella during an interview on Monday night.

Mayor Fuentebella is the wife of Congressman Noli Fuentebella of the 4th District of the province.

Asked for opinion about the proposal to create a new province as contained in a bill to be sponsored by her husband, she said: “there is no retreat, no surrender” on the pushing of the bill. The new province shall be called Nueva Camarines, according to Mayor Fuentebella. Some proponents prefer to call the new province Camarines Oriental.

The Fuentebella family promises to promote tours to the different islands in Caramoan once a new province is created. The islands off Caramoan peninsula are now world-renowned tourist destinations.

In the same interview, Mayor Fuentebella also promoted the 2011 Magayon Festival, a summer festival in Sangay that opened last Easter Sunday. One of its highlights is the Bikini Open, a pageantry of beauties in bikinis.

The townfolks of Sangay are now on a clean-up drive along the beach shores from barangays Nato to Sto. Nino in preparation for the festivities.

Many tourists have already arrived. Balikbayans from Manila and abroad have come home for the Holy week and the festival.

Mayor Fuentebella added that boats going to Catanduanes may soon also embark from Nato port, an alternative start point to Tabaco City port. This will shorten the travel time and cut costs--- long time dreams of the people of Camarines Sur and Camarines Norte.
