The victims as of this time are the passengers. They have to walk a long distance out of the port before they can see and hail a tricycle. It's very inconvenient especially when it rains or when the sun is too bright and hot to walk. Why does PPA has to punish the riding public. The riding public pays 12 pesos already at the entrance when they ride the boat. If they make the tricycle pay 12, they would just tell the passenger to shell out 12. In short, the passenger has to pay double entrance fee - 12 pesos at the port entrance and another 12 pesos before boarding the boat. That's too much. What are these people smoking.

Travel and Tours / Re: Ceres Bus Operation in Bohol Gets Loud Praises
« on: November 24, 2012, 07:17:29 AM »
I would say sorry for our old bus operators. They did not improve. In fact, Ceres applied for franchise a decade ago. They objected for the same reason. Ceres did not get the franchise because of their objection. Our old bus operators had all the chance to improve the quality of their service since that time. But they continue to operate junk units which were smoke belching, leave the terminal at their own time or when the bus is filled with passengers and overcharge passengers when they find it convenient and when the riding public have no other choice.

What the public want are safe units, units that depart and arrive on time, who pays good taxes (issue receipts to passengers) and responsive to the public demands for better service.

Let our old operators serve us the way we want, or the way Ceres is doing now, and the riding public will patronize with them.


Philippine Business News / Royal Palm Panglao
« on: April 28, 2012, 04:50:14 PM »
For the first time, Boholanos can now have a taste of living in an exclusive subdivision complete with basic amenities like swimming pool, gated guardhouse, big roads, club house, parks, security, perimeter fence and many others typical of high end subdivisions comparable to those in Cebu and Manila.

Last Thursday, Royal Palms Panglao, a subdivision developed by Primaryhomes Inc. in Cebu, opened it's gate to welcome guests and the general public to view their six model houses, so that the public can see, feel and experience what it is to  be in the high end community. Indeed, a lot of curious crowds and interested clients came and usher to the extraordinary event which was full of fanfare, nice foods, big names as invited guests and enjoy the entertainment brought about by celebrities and artists from Cebu. The event was started with a mass held by Fr. Victor Bompat, followed the blessing of the new model houses.

Awed by the beauty of the houses, amenities and the environment, six clients decided to buy units on the spot and made deposit payments for the house models and lot they chose. This only disproves the claim that Bol-anons are not easy to convince by marketers to buy assets like a house and lot. Our folks have realistically come of age as far as placing their savings on assets, than on liabilities.

Royal Palms Panglao is the first in Bohol and in Dauis as an exclusive and resort-type subdivision. So far, its quality and what it can offer cannot be found in Bohol yet, and not until a year or two from now. Primaryhomes pioneered this kind of project and soon other developers may follow to cater to the changing taste and needs of Bol-anons as far convenient and high end housing project is concerned.

A big percentage of the units had already been sold during the pre-selling period and during the model house launching. There are still a lot of house and lots available which are in strategic locations, like corner lots. To avail and take advantage of this opportunity, it is wise to make a decision now.

By the way, six days from today, prices will increase by 3% and down payment terms will change from 24 months to 18 months. There is still enough time to beat this deadline for those who may be interested.

To visit and view the houses at Royal Palms Panglao, you can call vir at 0921 764 4414 or 412 2748 so he can arrange a trip ticket to the site. Only visitors with trip tickets will have full access to the housing model units.

Bay, I have four meanings to this word, as follows:

1) glean for valuable information
2) find out
3) scavenge for leftovers
4) make a fishing expedition

you are right with your interpretation as it is one of the meanings I have for the word. I just assume it is also about fishing expedition as it has relevance in meaning. thanks

Bay, My publisher has exclusive right to distribute the book most specifically to the National Bookstore. I will announce in this forum when the book is finally released. NB has nationwide branches hence it would not be difficult to get a copy. Thanks for the interest.

Finally, my Binisaya (Cebuano/Bol-anon) - English dictionary is going to the printing press for publication. It is composed of more than 25,000 words, idioms, colloquials and phrases native to Cebu, Bohol and other Binisaya speaking provinces. It may come out soon in two months. This is my greatest contribution to the perpetuation, growth, modernization and preservation of our language. What is more interesting is it is probably the first dictionary where the Bol-anon version of Binisaya is recognize. All words with "J" and all words used only by Bol-anons are included.
Would welcome any feedback as soon as the book hits the National Bookstore shelves.
Thanks to Tubagbohol. Some of the words included were gleaned from our or your conversations.

balik sa gigikanan, from rags to riches back to rags
gidungog, became talk of the town
gikabani-og, became talk of the town
himoon ang gipamulong, walk the talk, substantiate one’s words
pagbakwi sa gipanulti, eat one’s own words
gitinubig, drink liquor as if drinking water
habug manulti, has high opinion of oneself
hadla sa kapalaran, playful twist of fate
hagdaw, make fishing expedition
bagag hasang, has long stamina in deep water swimming
hatag og saa, cause someone to commit a sin
hatag higayon o lugway, give someone a break
himolbolan, scrutinize very well

This is not only a lesson but a warning. There are many big corporations who continue to violate labor laws by paying them below minimum wage set by the labor law and make their employees sign two payrolls. Even in the arrastre sector, majority of the laborers are paid as low as 100 a day. This set up should now be stopped. Protecting the businesses for the decades did not bring any help. It only worsens the situation. In fact, this is one reason why our kababayans have to leave the country and their family.

Aw, kini si Cesar Montano okay ra og atong himoong gobernador kay limpyo pa man ang record. Dato na daan. Mora og way planong mangorap. Si Vilma okay ra man ang record. Way rason di pod maayo ang performance ni Cesar.

Excuse me no, pero dili ba diay healthy ning musolti ta sa tinood og sa unsay atong nakita sa ilang mga binuhatan. Ang dili makabungat sa tinuod o nagbungat sa sukwahi sa tinuod midyo maoy dili healthy ang panghunahuna. Naa ba goy tarong nga pulitiko karon. Wah koy gimanok. My comments is for everybody. Can anyone tell us of any congressman, mayor, governor, mga vice mayor or consihalis nga wah mo-asinso bisag gamay ra ang sweldo. Gikan sa first ngadto sa third district, kinsa may congressman nga walay balay sa bohol og sa manila. kinsa may wah kabiyahe sa laing nasod nga sayonsayon lang nga morag nagbiyahi lang og bohol-manila. kinsa may way daghang mahalon nga sakyanan. naay usa ka kongressman nga karon lang ko mahibalo nga daghan man diay og balay patigayon, mga balay og sakyanan nga karon lang ma ongkat og karon lang makasohan kay duna nay nangisog. Angay ang uban unta kasohan na imbis protektahan sa mga blind followers. Panahon na usbon atong katilingban. bawion na ang atong katungod nga dugay nang gibaligya sa mga politiko. kining mga kaayohan kunohay puros man ni mga utang diin ang tawo ra gihapon ang mobayad. pulos ni mga proyekto nga diin maoy nakadato nila. we should not be thankful to them for these. in fact, they should account to us money missing such in the Talibon irrigation project diin 100m ang nawala. taas na ang istoryo. i am not impressed by any one of them. gihimo nila ning mga proyiktoha kay mokita sila dili kay para kaayohan sa mga tawo. seguro naay usa nga midyo maayo ayo nilang tanan. si Mayor Lim lang sa Tagbilaran.

Out of 10 family political dynasties naa lang seguroy usa nga maayo. And it may be accidental only. We have already the worst crime committed by political dynasty as exemplified by the Ampatuans. In Bohol, there is no family political dynasty which can be rated as worth emulating or appreciating. They all end up in corruption, perpetuation of corruption, wallowing in corruption, and generation of more corruption among their supporters and followers.

Pareho man ni sila tanan puro mga kurap. Walay less or more corrupt. Puro corrupt as in corrupt gyod. Mas ngil-ad gyud ng upaw kay protector sa mga dautang tawo. daghan ng mga kriminal nalibre kay gipangkuot ang ilang mga kaso sa appelate court. mas grabe gyod tong diha pay taga-Bohol sa court of appeals. maayo unta ug mga inosente ang gipang libre. kana lang anomaliya sa NIA, angay naman unta ma priso ang mga involved pero gipang lawgan man ang mga nag imbestiga og mga huwes sa itaas. Kaning mga nahimo nila sa bohol, mas dako og kahimoan sa ilang personal nga kalamboan. gani karon nang-gawas na ang mga tinagoan ni Cajes kay nanug-an naman ang iyang mga silingan. angay unta kanang ubang ipang kiha na pod kay mao ra man silang klaseha, mga boneless, way klaron baroganan, way mga prinsipyo.

Kanang uban diha klaro kaayong trapo. Sa kadugay na political arena, na upaw na mao nga sigihan na lang og trapo ang pagka upaw.

To be frank, I don't like these trapos. What I detest most is their double-standards which is very much lopsided in favor of the rich. One such trapo has this tendency to help all the poor that go to him and also the rich who need his help. How many cases in court especially in the Sandigan Bayan and Court of Appeals that had been compromised to favor somebody through secret and corrupt arrangements. I know of one treasurer who had malversed money entrusted to him and was found guilty but his case was dismissed on appeal through the help of one old trapo. I can hardly believe this act of help the corrupt and thief to the prejudice of the municipality where this guy stole money.

Whatever happens to the more than 100m funds lost in a big irrigation project in Talibon. By maneuvering with courts or investigators, the case just disappeared by asking for new funds to finish the project.

Let's give others a chance, those who have better outlook for the people than for their own interest.

Deliberate man ning pag-usab sa ending portion sa national anthem. they cannot claim ignorance for doing it. it was done in all past Pacquiao fight. The NHI called their attention and still the law continues to be violated. If nobody really wants to respect the law, it can be repealed in congress or senate, and anybody can do anything to change our national anthem to suit to any occasion. Mahilig lang gyod magpasikat. One time, the lady singer sang out of tune because her voice capacity was too low for the pitch she wanted to reach. it was embarrassing for the pinoy crowd.

How true is the story that Noynoy is mentally challenged? Other reasons why I doubt Noynoy is his lack of leadership experience. The fact that he remains single is he must be afraid to propose to a woman. Most of his girl friends were introduced or matched to him. Hence, this is a red flag in his having no courage to make bold decisions. The presidency is too big a challenge for him. Even in the senate, he could not preside a committee meeting. He has not been a leader of any organization. In short, he is zero as far as leadership is concerned. And leadership is very important. Otherwise, unscrupulous subalterns might take advantage of his weakness and we may wake up our country being managed by non-duly elected decision makers. Si Gibo na lang o di ba si Gordon

This is what our kababayans should learn. Many have complete and functioning body organs yet they are helpless, hopeless, jobless and weak. Many rely on support from others while others prefer to beg. It's a shame that while God gave us all the blessings and gifts yet many of us have remained poor and dependent.
