The Antique Provincial Tourism Office, headed by Mr. Jose Ramlo Villaluna, in cooperation with the National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA), will renovate the Malandog Marker in Hamtic as part of the provincial developmental projects for the upcoming Binirayan Festival in December.

The project will be funded by NCCA through foundations. According to Mr. Villaluna, the tentative start of the construction will be on October and will end on December, its inauguration to be included as part of the Binirayan Festival.
The Bornean and Ati statues will be made of steel or concrete. There will also be an office space, a display area for souvenirs, and a toilet facility.
The design of the new marker was conceptualized by Architecture Harold Tating, which the NCCA approved.
“Daw nami gani kun i-renovate da… Ready kami sa bulig (It’s good that they will do a renovation… We are ready to help),” Avelino Marcaliñas, the barangay captain of Barangay Malandog, said.
The Provincial Tourism Office will be in charge of this project.
