Thats true, Mr. Ayag. I personally would like to retire in Bohol some day because of the 'total' care one gets  so long as you have the capital to hire workers to care after you. In particular, my grandfather is already 81 years old, though he is a strong man in spirit and in body, he is a stroke victim. His entire left side of the body was affected by the stroke he had back in 1996, thank god it was in the right side of the brain that was affected not the left side, the problems affected only include (minimal):     
   * Paralysis on the left side of the body   
    * Vision problems   
    * Quick, inquisitive behavioral style   
    * Memory loss
whereas a stroke that affects the left side, which my Lolo did not have, thank God, is     
   * Paralysis on the right side of the body   
    * Speech/language problems   
    * Slow, cautious behavioral style   
    * Considerable Memory loss

But Lolo has been able to live with his stroke, actually strengthened his right side of the body, he does pull ups in his wheel chair, can dress himself, shower himself etc with just the use of his right side of the body. Aside from his strong spirit, it is the help of the hired hands that we hired to care for our beloved Lolo. They're trained in giving him medication, preparing his food, etc, though the only thing they have to worry about is the food aspect because Lolo, like me, has a large appetite, LOL. Im just thankful for the workers that care for my grandfather because they keep an eye on him 24/7. I personally want to retire in Bohol because of family, and i don't want to be stuck in a nursing home here in the states where one is easily abused or 'left alone'. That is a nightmare to many Americans, including myself.

Yes Bran Lorenz, tinood gyod na.  Ako ganing Mama who just turned 76 last Jan. 22 nananghid na nga mouli gyod kuno siya sa Pinas ( she is based now in Union City with my sis and nephews ).  Maayo gyod kuno nga naa sa atoa kaysa laing nasod.

Pohon magkita ta sa July this year with our families... Just let me know if you need some assistance...

Mr. Ayag, i hope and pray that your mother is in good health. In the words of my Lolo Casiano Salvo, "Bata pa man na" (he was regarding his birthday celebration here in our house back in New Jersey in 2003-2004), celebrating his 77th birthday, mga jokester jokester jud siya despite his age, hahaha. Pero you know, though he liked it here in the 'states, he would always talk about our Lola who passed away IN 1998. You could tell, without him saying it to us directly, that he was severely homesick. Ning balik siya sa Bohol in 2005 kai na mingaw man gud siya sa Pinas. He said before he left that ning anhi ra kono siya sa Amerika kai gusto man siya mo tan-aw sa iyang anaks (his daughters: my mom and my aunt are here), iyang mga apo (myself, my sister, my brother don, brother andre, and cousin Leslie). To fulfill the dream that my dear Lola Nating wanted, which was for her and my lolo to come to the 'US to see their family. That is why he felt mingaw-mingaw when he was here, because na wa' naman si Lola gud.

Ako, gusto ko mo balik sa bohol to see my Lolo. My main reason for going to Bohol this summer is to see my Lolo again, everything else is secondary. I can feel the time having its effect on my Lolo, and I don't know how much long he has to be with us, but we were mostly concerned in keeping him comfortable for the most part. And Bohol is home for him, specially Valencia :) I just want to see my Lolo Ciano one more time with my own eyes, and hear his voice with my own ears and not through a telephone or a card. And most of all, to hug him and have him hug me. This is afterall the man that used to carry me when I was 2 y/o on his shoulder, used to feed me with his hands, and used to take me everday to Badjang and teach me how to swim. My Lolo...i miss you..... :'( :'( :'( :'(

Mr. Ayag, I wish to see you this summer pohon this July. Perhaps you probably know my dad and or some relatives of mine. Please extend my regards to your family, Mr. Ayag.

God Bless you.

Jun, I am not too far aways from Union City - maybe just about 3 hours drive.  ms. da binsi and I were even planning to go to Union City Jollibee but we changed plan when we learned that there's a Jollibee in San Francisco.

Grazie,
Nice to hear nga duol ra mo dinha ni Ms da Binsi sa akong Mama ug sister sa Union City.  Kon moadto unya mo didto dapita, sultihi unya ko aron makavisit mo sa balay nila...it would be pleasure for them to meet both of you.

Bran Lorenz,
Sus baskog pa gyod akong Mama bisan 76 na kay anad man sa trabaho, dili mahimotang kon walay buhaton.  Would you imagine, she was travelling alone from the USA to the Philippines (back and forth) 2 yrs ago at the age of 74? Dili man gani mosakay sa wheel chair when embarking from the plane to the airport.

Buyag baya tawon akong Mama. Sulti niya mas dali man kuno siya magkasakit sa US kay wala may buhaton pero kon dia siya sa Bohol daghan trabahoon (gardening, cleaning, cooking, everything... daghan trabaho pa sa helper...LOL)

Mr. Jun Ayag,

Mao jud, sir. Mao jud. Kanang active tawo--mo survive jud na sila to a long age. Na lingaw pood ko reading your story of your mama going back to the Philippines by herself. She is a strong willed, intelligent woman. That really is true, the elderly need something to motivate them in their life, either through work or chores. Please extend our regards to your mama, more health to your Mama!

In the end, this conversation only illustrates the effect Bohol has on a person. The need to visit it or the need to retire there.

Jun, ms da binsi is based in Michigan but she came to the Bay Area two weeks ago and we had our EB (Sleepless in Sanfracisco thread).  Before she came, we were planning to eat jud sa Jollibee and we thought the nearest was Union City so we were planning to go there but when i checked on their website, naa naman diay sa heart of San Francisco. 

I will let you know jud if ever mag adto mi usab with my family didto na dapit so I can meet your Mama and your sister - sila na lang kay mas impossible man kita mag kita kay layo'ng dapit man ka. But someday sa Bohol magka abot ta didto.  It would be my pleasure though to meet your Mama and your sister.  Ganahan ko mag meet mga parents like someday I am going to meet Macky's parents and all the parents of our TB friends.

If Bohol is serious with Tourism initiatives, WE ( Bol-anons ) must embed that character or trait and most that CULTURE of friendliness, clean environment (including sanitation), crime free and a list of positive values instrumental in enticing the so called expats to come and stay like their own ...

Gone across with an article in the Visayas Business Review that Cebu is the premier tourist attraction and destination of the country, with 1.25 Million tourists last year.  With the energetic leadership of the Tourism Secretary, Hon. Ace Durano who hails from Cebu, he deserved for the praise...and we have to be grateful to have Bohol a chunk of the success...with our proximity to Cebu, we have to capitalize on that...  the vision of Bohol to be a haven for Expats is not a far cry....

Bohol and/or Boholanos have a competitive edge over than... kay ang "Bol-anon buotan man gayod... magmahal kanimo [bisan kinsa ug kanus-a] sa kahangtoran... in short... sincere nga amigo... tinood ba TubagBohol?

Yes Ginger... when I had visited some parts of Europe in the past, I've met some Filipinos and the common commentaries... maduol o masaligan gyod ang mga Bisaya labaw na ang mga Bol-anon... dili man tinood ang ija-ija aho-aho... the testimonials of many Filipinos were sufficient to support such claim...and I am proud to be a Bisaya and Boholano at large... even those expats I've made who made a visit in Tagalog area and in the Visayan region for recruitment, mas maayo gyod kuno ang mga Bisaya and when they made a side trip of Bohol, ang ilang ikasulti... IT IS REALLY PEACEFUL AND WARM LOVING PEOPLE...
