Tubag Bohol was created out of a secret frustration
« on: May 04, 2008, 05:48:39 PM »
This is a post Tubag Bohol birthday reflection.

From 2000-2002 I was editing and writing for a travel magazine in Davao City. Your Guide was the name of the magazine. It was published by Midtown Printing Company, Inc., the sponsor of my Silliman scholarship (1996-2000).

During those times I used to send emails to resorts, hotels, business establishments in Bohol. I introduced the magazine and offered to them free write-ups. But walay mo-"tubag" to my emails and letters. (I can truly empathize with Balong's feeling when he tried to get in touch with Panglao Island Resort.)

When I came to Thailand in 2006, I felt for the first time a profound pain of being uprooted from our homeland. I had been living in different cities and provinces outside Bohol, but living in a foreign land is entirely a different experience. There is always this longing for news or any info about home. To cure the longing for home, I would browse Philippine websites and Bohol-related websites. I wrote several emails to website owners asking them if they have this and that information. But walay mo-"tubag" to my emails. (Jeroen Hellingman of bohol.ph is an exemption. I really like this man from Netherlands, the webmaster of bohol.ph. I was so encouraged when he placed Tubag Bohol in bohol.ph without question. He is the only webmaster who accommodated my request to place Tubag Bohol link in another website.)

I am not a computer science graduate (I completed a degree in Mass Communication from Silliman.) I didn't have a computer/laptop and neither did I have an Internet connection in Anda or in Tagbilaran. I was thinking that there must be a way in the Internet where people can share information and get in touch with each other at a deeper level of friendship and intimacy. But I am not a computer science graduate. So I took up BS-BS (Bachelor in Basa-Basa). :)

In 2007 I had a little saving and I used it to buy the domain mikeligalig.com and rent a server. I just used this domain to house my resume/biodata and contact information.

The secret frustration nga walay mo-tubag to my emails to Philippine websites gave me an idea to use "tubag" and attach the word to "bohol," thus "tubagbohol." I was only experimenting how things would work if I posted information in tubagbohol site and invited others to read my own collection of research. I had this passion of sending emails to friends whenever I stumbled an excellent research material. I no longer send emails because I can now post any information in Tubag Bohol.

The frustration only deepened because whenever I posted something in Tubag Bohol, walay mo-tubag. I had to endure long nights of solitary confinement in Tubag Bohol posting any info that I deemed important to Boholanos and Filipinos. I sent invitation emails to my contacts in Bohol but my emails got lost. Maybe. The stats was: Most Online Today 1; Most Online Ever 1. But one day the number became 2. Her displayed name was "jeweloftheorient." Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome "Mari." She was the jeweloftheorient nga nasaag diri. She registered in TB but she never came back until 5 or 6 months later. :)

I felt so alone online. I could only imagine of my mother, my father, and my sister having an Internet connection in Bohol so we could all communicate without incurring a shocking cost. To call to the Philippines from Thailand is horribly expensive.

For months I felt so alone online. I almost gave up. I had posted hundreds of topics but TB's only reader, jeweloftheorient, was nowhere to be found.

Bob Parsons, founder of GoDaddy Inc., said, and I quote:

"Never give up. Almost nothing works the first time it's attempted. Just because what you're doing does not seem to be working, doesn't mean it won't work. It just means that it might not work the way you're doing it. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and you wouldn't have an opportunity."

At first I thought GEC was a girl. So I had to treat GEC like a precious lady whenever this TB mysterious icon appeared online during unholy hours last year.

And I love you, GEC.  8)

One thing I admire about GEC is that, he always expresss his love for Mike.

Can I also say, I love you, GEC? :D

The only time I heard my father saying "I love you" to me was when he was living on his last hours on earth.

From now on I will be saying a lot of "I love you's" to my friends. :)

Dear Mike,

We owe you a lot! Thank you very much.  You are the answer of all our  inquiries, getting  homesick and through your endless efforts we grow-up into a big family.

Since two months I am waiting for a TUBAG from my bank too.  That former PCIBank change their name into BANCO DE ORO without sending to us (bank account holders) any information in this regards.  I can't access into my account using my old PAN and PIN account.  I did register again as ordered and sent to them my new filed registration for online banking  to their given address but until now no TUBAG pod.  Through their given email address bdo call center....it did take times they give me an answer that after I had found it of myself how to do another registration.  Until now.....am still waiting of their TUBAG for confirmation so that I can successfully login for any transaction.

Hi Ate Annie,

I have the same problem. Every time I write to the customer service of Metrobank it would take forever to get a "tubag" from Metrobank.

Out of the many things that I learned from my tenured stay in Tubag Bohol, one thing that struck me is the humility and genuine nature of Boholanos.

Admittingly, I recognize my impudence in the past, I had little knowledge of Bohol, its history, its people. Aside from the fact that I had familial ties. This site, with all of its intellectual minds have provided vivid discourse on the topics revolving Bohol, the Visayas, the Philippines, Internationalism and the like. There is not one day that I am ever dissatisfied with the commentries of the membership. Overall, the entirety of the membership, of the collective minds that make up Tubag Bohol, is brilliant.

What I like the most about this web site, and the members within it, is the presence of accountability, responsibility, ability, legitimacy and humility. All in one.

The decorum of this site is professional, to say the least. Quite professional. It distinguishes itself from many other websites. That is what I like, and am sure many others share the same view. It is why we keep on coming back. To debate, to teach, and to learn.

You have a heartwarming story that parallels my own search for info about Bohol at the time my wife and I have seriously considered sending our kids to school in Tagbilaran and partially setting base there.

Yes, I went through the same frustration of browsing through local papers (that seemed to take forever to update their news and even settled for nearby Cebu's SunStar that is at least updated daily), and tried the tourist forums that were always brimming with "ohs and ahs" about the place but lacked substantial content relevant to what I wanted to know.

Fortunately, I stumbled on this handiwork of yours at about the time the traffic was starting to pick up... I remember I would update my wife about the daily exchange and information I got from this site. One day, she said that perhaps I was already getting more information than I needed and was already enjoying the company of virtual people... Oh, did I bristle at that comment and replied that the most "real" people I've met are here. Now she is happy that even from afar, I feel very much at home in Bohol.

Now I can say that this forum really helped me a lot in firming up my decision on the kids' schooling. My wife and two daughters are there already and are immensely enjoying their stay. I am scheduled to fly with my son on the 9th but I will have to be back immediately. I really do hope to meet some of our Tagbilaran-based members even for a quick EB somewhere at ICM. But perhaps I'll be available only on Sunday or Monday afternoon. Anyone available on either either of these days? I will certainly take a longer trip in July.

Therapeutic. This site has been very therapeutic for me, do you guys feel the same way as well?

Just to express feelings, to release anxiety. To be heard. So simple, but its healing power is undeniable.

...and i found Tubag Bohol out of a secret frustration too. When Mikey Gatal, who runs the sister (i should say sister forum)mikeygatal.com,  deleted all our post in his site! then sigi nanang ko ug kuri-kuri sa site ni Mikey hangtud na pindotan nako ning tubag Bohol.

Thanks Mikey, this doesnt mean i will be forgeting everything we shared... ;)
