A popular supermarket chain in Batangas opens in Barangay Namunga, Rosario, Batangas last December 15, 2023. It is the 10th Citimart branch and 8th in the province of Batangas. Its supermarket at the basement is fully operational while shops at the ground floor and the entire 2nd floor are to follow. Makeshift free taste booths at the ground floor were installed during the grand opening. We failed to cover these in our video including the ribbon cutting and some events at the activity area.
A KFC store opens in Barangay Namunga, Rosario, Batangas last December 28, 2023. It is the 375th KFC store in the Philippines and the 13th in the Province of Batangas. The first 100 customers of the branch received a free tote bag.

Compilation of videos courtesy of daddy wel tv. We chose these videos filmed in Barangay Bulihan, Rosario, Batangas for this post. Visit daddy wel's Youtube channel for more handaan/celebration videos and whatnot. The series covers things we see in a traditional Batangas wedding or baysanan from lipatan, panunulungan, sumanan, wedding reception, pasabit, and sabugan. Slaughtering of animals, also part of the preparation, is not included in the videos as it will violate YouTube guidelines.
Also worth noting in a Batangas wedding is pulungan, the Batangueño term for pamamanhikan. Other terms/practices preceeding the wedding proper are paghahanda, martesan, paglalawo, pagdadahon, pagniniyog, and pahapunan.
Another tradition right after the wedding is the dapit.
