Pozorrubio's Best: Beauty, Brawn and Blades

Pozorrubio has a lot to be proud of nowadays. Pozorrubio's best are world class! They have brought pride and accolades not just for the town and Pangasinan but the entire Philippines. The 3 P's (Pozorrubio, Pangasinan and Philippines) have 3 B's: Beauty, Brawn and Blades.

Beauty: Barbara "Barbie" Salvador, just won as Miss Cosmopolitan International 2010/11 (3rd runner up) in the Miss Tourism International 2010. 55 candidates represented their respective countries and competed in the pageant. 

Brawn:  Ana "Hurricane" Julaton, the World Boxing Organization Super Bantamweight Champion who is based in San Francisco, California has Filipino roots in Pozorrubio, Pangasinan.

Blades: Blade Culture International (BCI) in Brgy. Palacpalac, Pozorrubio, Pangasinan made the swords and blades used in blockbuster films like Lord of the Rings, Braveheart and Batman Begins.

These are welcome development as to veer away from the negative stereotype of the town  associated with tangay-tangay.
