SEAIR BRINGS ANOTHER OPTION FOR CEBU-TAGBILARAN ROUTE

South East Asian Airlines (SEAIR) introduces another option for people who would like to come to Tagbilaran from Cebu City.

In time for the Sandugo Festival, SEAIR will connect Tagbilaran and Cebu with their schedule of trips.

Cebu-Tagbilaran:
Monday and Friday: 7:00 am to 7:45 am
Thursday and Sunday: 8:00 am to 8:25 am

Tagbilaran-Cebu:
Monday and Friday: 7:45 am to 8:10 am
Thursday and Friday: 8:45 am to 9:10 al

Hopefully, by November 2007, SEAIR will have flights from Boracay direct to Tagbilaran.

According to Johnny Galia Enerio, General Sales Agent in Tagbilaran, it is the “westward route” which will connect Bohol with Caticlan, Aklan, Busuanga and Palawan in an hour, without passing Cebu or Manila.

It will make Tagbilaran the gateway of the best dive spots in the Philippines!

A. Rationale

      The Sandugo Festival is an annual activity done by Boholanos to commemorate the blood compact between Datu Sikatuna and Miguel Lopez de Legazpi where both agreed to maintain friendly relations. It is said that this agreement was the first international treaty of friendship.

      Through the years the Sandugo Festival has been celebrated via a plethora of activities that showcases the past, present and even aspirations (future) of Boholanos. This is shown through song and dance, crafts and food shows, cultural presentations, agricultural fairs, and the entrepreneurial endeavors of its people. Always at the heart of these annual celebrations are the Boholanos, unified in purpose to survive hardship and poverty through the judicious and creative use of its natural endowments.

      The celebration is usually a whirl of activities contributed by various government and private sector groups and integrated through a Sandugo calendar that lists the events. While this has been effective in part in that it unleashes local creativity and imagination, for some it results in duplication and cost inefficiency. It also limits the attraction and choices that the various, disparate fairs being held offer to the market.

      It is in this context that this concept paper is submitted to prospective partners for consideration. In the spirit of the original Sandugo which was a compact of friendship and collaboration, the proponents advocated for and got overwhelming support for the integration of the DTI product showcase, the Agricultural Fair of the Provincial Agriculture Office (PAO), as well as provision for a Cultural and Heritage Showcase and to a limited extent the presentation of the tourism promotion efforts of local government units who would like to showcase their cultural and tourism endowments so that they can also share in the bounty that tourism has brought to the province.

      Sandugo 2007 will be an integrated activity which is now dubbed “The First Boholano Creative Industries Festival”. This year’s theme, “Pakigsandurot sa Kina-iyang Bol-anon” couldn’t be more appropriate. Sandugo 2007 will be a showcase of the Boholano Culture and Lifestyle and how the creative sector contributes to economic growth. It will also be a celebration of how friendship, collaboration and partnership can go a long way towards enabling communities to have its share of economic growth and achieve the over arching goal of poverty alleviation.

B. Objectives

To decentralize distribution of economic activities in the province and establish other growth centers outside of the established areas;
To integrate the promotion and marketing of agricultural and creative industries for sustainable livelihood and tourism;
To make the Sandugo as a venue to showcase Boholano products and services and establish the Bohol brand beyond its borders.
To move towards establishing the the Bohol Product and Lifestyle Fair as one of the region’s premier craft and lifestyle shows.

C. Activity Components

      The integration of two major local fairs and its component special activities will result in the upscaling of its overall attractiveness not only for locals but also for institutional buyers. The added attraction of the Cultural presentations will ensure that the kaleidoscope of events will not distract locals and guests from the proper perspective of the festival i.e. the spirit of Sandugo. The activity will be an “agora” of culture, crafts, food, agriculture, lifestyle, ideas, creativity and ingenuity.

C.1 Sandugo Product and Lifestyle Fair

      Over the last twenty years, DTI has been at the forefront in the development of our creative economy cluster. A quick look at the products being exhibited in trade fairs whether local, national or international will immediately reveal the extent to which we have developed our local crafts and ethnic food from practically nothing to that of a thriving export oriented industry. DTI has been able to successfully harness the creativity and skills of our traditional craftsmen to come up with world class products.

      The conduct of local fairs provides the venue where craftsmen and producers could showcase their products, gauge their products vis a vis competition, directly interact with buyers, not to mention being exposed to new ideas and processes. Through the years it has contributed towards the growth and maturity of our producers.

      The annual DTI Sandugo Product and Lifestyle Fair will be on its 19th year and has garnered a faithful following of major buyers from Manila and Cebu. Through this fair Boholano producers generate the orders that enable entire communities to not only sustain their craft and livelihoods but also allow the outspring of more entrepreneurs in the creative industry sector.

      The fair showcases the best of Boholano craftsmanship and ingenuity with indigenous materials such as raffia and bamboo. This year more than 30 local producers will be exhibiting new products after undergoing a 2-month product development process.

      Moreover, still in keeping with the spirit of Sandugo, the gesture of friendship and collaboration will also be extended beyond the borders of the province to that of its neighboring provinces within the region. Participation by producers coming from other provinces will enable local craft communities and producers to interact and be exposed to ideas and novel processes. Exposure to competition will also better prepare them for an increasingly competitive and globalized marketing system. DTI for its part would like to position the Sandugo Product and Lifestyle Fair to be a premier craft show in the region that is able to attract major institutional buyers.

This will dramatize how community productivity and creativity in the arts, crafts, agricultural production, and local tourism will b a strategy of these communities towards attaining sustainable development, thereby reducing poverty in their areas.

      Each circuit performance will feature a city-based cultural group acting as narrative performers (to highlight Tagbilaran City as SANDUGO host city) and will integrate special performances from key cultural groups from the sub-region (to highlight provincial talents).

      The theme is FROM POVERTY TO ECONOMIC FREEDOM THROUGH THE CREATIVE    INDUSTRIES AS STRATEGY FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

            GENERAL SYNTHESIS: Paths for the Bohol Creative Industry

C. 5 Mag Negosyo Talk Show

      The activity aims to highlight the importance of entrepreneurship towards achieving economic growth and poverty alleviation. It will also be a venue to highlight success stories that will serve as an inspiration to prospective and budding entrepreneurs.

      A panel of resource persons will be invited. The activity hopes to look at business opportunities for the province, encourage entrepreneurship in the tourism and agriculture sectors.


      Suggested topics for discussion include adopting a culture of entrepreneurship, getting started in business ventures, business trends and opportunities, and inspiring stories of successful SMEs.

C.6 Boholano Cook Fest

      The Cook Fest aims to elevate the level of appreciation, preparation and presentation of the Bol-anon Food/Cuisine. The Collaborating Organizers of the activity are the following: Bohol Chamber of Commerce & Industry (BCCI), Department of Trade and Industry – Bohol (DTI), and the Bohol Association of Hotels, Resorts and Restaurants (BAHRR).

      There will be two venues for the cook fest. The Island City Mall will hold a cook fest on the Gourmet Category. This will be an exhibition by creative chefs (foreign and local) in the province. The aim is to come up with recipes with an international touch using indigenous ingredients and inspired by local recipes e.g. “inun-unan”. The cook fest at the BQ Mall will be a competition with two categories namely: student and professional.

      The idea is to generate recipes for a main course, salad, dessert and maybe a Boholano Breakfast which can be carried in the menus of local restaurants and hotels.

C.7Agricultural Entrepreneurship Fair (Fresh and Processed Agricultural Products)

      The organization of an annual provincial agricultural fair is a major marketing promotional activity that highlights the display of fresh, organic, agricultural and processed products. It is an excellent venue for our farmer beneficiaries and local producers to test the marketability of their products and farm produce. The fair will feature crops and other farm products from the different farming communities in the province, which will be integrated with that of the identified tourism circuits.

      Programmed activities include the Tekno Serbisyo for crops, livestock and fishery, Banana Congress, Forum, and Market Matching / Order Taking. Some of these activities will be conducted in a separate venue.

      Some of our assisted agri-producers for both fresh and processed will also be joining in the Go Negosyo lectures and Product Development and Product Packaging Lectures including the one-on-one consultancy services.

HSS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION PRESENTS "KARAANG BALAY"


As its 80th anniversary treat to the alumni, students, teachers and school administration, the Holy Spirit School Alumni Association (HSSAA) presented the "Karaang Balay" last February 15, 6:00 in the evening at the HSS Auditorium.

A one-act drama which portrays the crises being confronted by families engaged in the struggle between the preservation of their ancestral homes as against and survival and pressures of development, the play is produced by the Baclayon Ancestral Home Owners Association (BAHANDI), written by Alfred R. Valenzona and directed by Lutgardo Labad and is the province's official entry to TANGHAL, the First National University Theatre Festival held in Iloilo City from February 7 to 10, 2007, spearheaded by the Committee on Dramatic Arts of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA).

The staging of "Karaang Balay" was made possible through the support of Rosario P. Dejaresco, Filomena E. Lim, Eufemia C. Cabagnot, Atty. Myrna T. Pagsuberon, Wilfilda G. Collins, Anne Mariquit D. Oppus, Cong.Edgar M. Chatto, Gov. Erico B. Aumentado, Vice-Gov. Julius Ceasar F. Herrera, Atty. Tomas Abapo, Jr., and Richard Uy.

HSS: “Celebrating Life and Mission at 80”
by Fiel Angeli Espejo Araoarao - Gabin



Eighty fruitful years is, indeed, a big reason to celebrate.

In thanksgiving of her many years of dedicated service to the Boholanos, the Holy Spirit School (HSS) marked her 80th anniversary last October 16 with simple rites.

At 7:30 a.m., a holy mass started the day, followed by the floral offering at the statue of St. Joseph the Worker. Atty. Rosalima Cuyno Abapo, HSS Alumni Association (HSSAA) president, gave the plaque of appreciation to the SSpS Community which was received by Sister Mary Joy B. Quizan, SSpS, school director. The opening of the heritage room near the chapel was also done.

Jane Censoria Del Rosario Cajes, Council of Servant-Leaders (COSL) president, Atty. Abapo, and Sister Joy led the tree planting activity at the school’s campsite in Tinago, Dauis, together with Sister Mary Judith Abrea, alumni coordinator, SSpS Sisters Miriam Dolores Terce, Diomar Lopez, Mary Esther Aracap, Gina Flores Cerrafon and Doyet Luarca. Other alumni who attended were women’s right advocate Atty. Myrna T. Pagsuberon, Elsie T. Lim, Jade T. Nuera, Rosalina R. Sarabosing and Nazareno T. Ello.

Going back to history, it was during the feast of Nuestra Señora del Pilar, on October 16, 1926, when Sister Laeticia, Sr. Blasia and Sr. Josaphata came to Bohol in answer to Fr. Gelacio Ramirez’s request for the Missionary Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit School (SSpS) to serve in his parish in Tagbilaran.

The school was first named St. Joseph’s Academy (after Saint Joseph the Worker, patron of Tagbilaran) which later evolved into St. Joseph’s Junior College, St. Joseph’s College, then to College of the Holy Spirit and finally Holy Spirit School (HSS) of Tagbilaran in 1974 when the college department was phased out. Accredited by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU), the school is keeping true to her mission of offering genuine quality Christian education, responding to the needs of the community and guided by the motto “Truth in Love” in the Trinitarian way.  HSS is preparing for the PAASCU visits on November 16 to 17 for the grade school and November 20 to 21 for the high school.

A major celebration of the 80 years of HSS has been set in time for the HSS Days in February 2007. (Fiel Angeli E. Araoarao - Gabin)

OUR BOHOL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF '87 20TH ANNIV REUNION ON JULY 27 AND 28, 2007.PLS PASS INFO
Message:
Message: Back to that Didache
reflection I read
yesterday, I was really touched when I
came across the lines “May we learn to
have a heart like (Mother) Mary’s,
treasuring memories that build up,
rather than tear, down our
relationships.” Speaking of memories,
our Bohol National High School Class of
1987 will have its 20th anniversary
celebration on July 27 and 28,
2007.Registration starts at 7:30 at
DCPNHS COPTAI Gym. A thanksgiving mass
to be officiated by Rev. Fr. Efren
Dolauta, our spiritual adviser, will
formally open the gathering. Since
there have been new structures
constructed since we left the campus in
April 1987, a familiarization tour of
the school will be done after the mass.
Class ’87 concerns will be dealt with
during the general assembly. Then, the
117 teachers, administrative and non-
academic personnel will join us in the
luncheon fellowship. At 1:00 to 4:00
pm, we will have the career talk for
the senior HS students, with our
classmates (who have been successful in
their respective fields of endeavor) to
compose the speakers’ bureau. After the
talk, the BNHS Class ’87 will turn over
its donation (monobloc chairs) to Ma’am
Concepcion Bagotchay, DCPNHS Principal
III. This will give the senior students
an idea of not really “giving back” to
the school, but more on the concept
of “sharing their blessings” with their
Alma Mater in the future. In the
evening, we will be at Villa Alzhun
Tourist Inn and Restaurant for another
round of kumustahan and reminiscing of
those wonderful years we spent at BNHS.
The second (last) day will be a beach
party with the families. It may be
noted that last May 15, the Boholano
Belgian Association and BNHS Class
of ’87 gave bundles of joy to 33
financially-challenged families of
Gawad Kalinga – Saint Vincent Village
in Cabawan. For further details, you

TRAILBLAZING EXCELLENCE…


HOLY NAME UNIVERSITY: 60 Years of Witnessing the WORD
by Fiel Angeli Espejo Araoarao - Gabin


As a college freshman in 1987, this writer was a staff of “The WORD,” the student publication of the school… I also recall that my first “official” emceeing stint was at the Divine Word College of Tagbilaran Gymnasium during the Miss College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) beauty pageant in September 1989. In 1990, I was part of the “Golden Harvest” yearbook staff…

What exactly did I learn as a graduate of DWC-T that until now I am so proud of? As assistant local executive of the CAS Department (1989), it has instilled in me the sense of leadership, of working with different people. As a student of Humanities under Atty. Roselima Cuyno-Abapo (who is now president of the Holy Spirit School Alumni Association), I have learned how to appreciate what is true, good and beautiful.

It was 1946, the end of the Second World War and Tagbilaran was about to recover from the ravages of war. There was a two-story building, erected in 1939, which was used as garrison during the Japanese occupation. Its future was yet to be determined. Msgr. Gelacio T. Ramirez, the philanthropic former vicar general of the secular clergy in Bohol, the owner (in 1926, he donated a piece of lot to the Holy Spirit Sisters so they could open the first Catholic girls’ school – Saint Joseph Academy – now known as Holy Spirit School which celebrated its 80th anniversary in October 2006), had half of the lower portion rented, while the other half was occupied by relatives. After the war, the first floor was converted to some sort of a department store. Then came the time when the aging Msgr. Ramirez donated the property to the newly-created Diocese of Tagbilaran through its first bishop, Msgr. Julio R. Rosales – that paved the way to its noble destiny.

“…Msgr. Rosales surveyed the social and religious scene of the period…He then set on a mission to look for a religious congregation to manage the institution he had in mind…He approached two groups, but his offer was declined. He then broached the idea to the Society of the Divine Word (SVD) who at that time had already established the Tubigon Catholic High School (now Holy Cross Academy). This time, the response was positive.” (May Amparo Blanco, from “Jubilation, HNC-DWCT Golden Jubilee Album). The moment Msgr. Rosales got the approval of the SVD Priests, negotiations started. Acting as first director of the new college was Fr. Alphonse Lesage, then director of Tubigon Catholic High School.

Why the name “Holy Name?” Msgr. Rosales gave the school its name. It was probably because of his strong personal devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus. Years passed, he was elevated to the position of Archbishop, later Cardinal, of Cebu (christened “Villa del Santissimo Nombre de Jesus” or settlement of the Most Holy Name of Jesus by the Spaniards). In simple rites, Holy Name College was formally inaugurated on July 14, 1947 at the Plaza Rizal Kiosk.

From Holy Name College, it became Divine Word College in 1964 when Fr. Charles Scanlon (HNC director starting June 1963), went on study leave. In November 19, 2001, the learning institution has finally achieved its long-cherished, much-deserved university status. Through its portals passed the many graduates molded into the image of Jesus Christ, the WORD-made-flesh, who have proven themselves in various fields of endeavor, helping create self-reliant communities and keeping on with their contribution to society.

Among its fruits is the establishment of a solid Holy Name University Alumni Association (HNUAA) led by conscientious citizens who have continuously lived by the ideals of the school. A crucial step initiated by the its present leadership composed of Reynald T. Gatal (president); Gilberto R. Lumayag (vice-president for internal affairs), Jose Antonio S. Veloso (vice-president for external affairs), Idmila C. Borja (secretary), Lito G. Sarmiento (treasurer), Constancio H. Bumaat, Jr. (auditor), Cruz C. Salgados (press relations officer), Primitive  S. Veloso, Samuel S. Belderol, Gilberto Jonas S. Inting, Leonides L. Borja, Rodolfo B. Madanguit, and Jose C. Pamaong (members of the board) is the approval of the SEC registration No. CN200629624 by the Securities and Exchange Commission – Cebu Extension Office on November 15, 2006. The alumni board regularly meets at the HNU Alumni Office manned by Eurea F. Gutierrez, alumni coordinator.

Through the years, Holy Name University has vowed to produce professionals who have equipped themselves with skills, making them ready to assume their responsibilities as worthwhile members of society, upholding the admirable values taught by the institution, and dedicating their lives for the more noble ends of their respective professions.

In celebration of its 60 years of bountiful harvest, the school will have its grand alumni homecoming on February 17, 2007 starting at 7:30 in the morning at the HNU-Main Gymnasium. To drumbeat the occasion, a province-wide caravan is scheduled on February 10, Saturday, starting at 5:00 in the morning from the Tagbilaran City Tourist Port. (FAEAG)

WAYS TO GET KIDS TO DO THEIR HOMEWORKS
By Fiel Angeli E. Araoarao - Gabin

Saturday, 20 January 2007. 3:30 in the afternoon… Let’s set a few things straight: First, I am definitely NOT the perfect mother. Second, I am not a graduate of psychology. Third, I have no intention of offering advices or interpretations to feelings as a “shrink” does. In my previous articles, I have written mostly about activities or personalities not only because I am “starstruck” and feel that I am forever a fan, but for the reason that I am easily inspired by people who have achieved so much (in terms of self-actualization) in their lives. This time, however, I am delving on something which is not really new to me, but though I am not an expert on this “department,” I feel that I have to share this with fellow mothers out there.

On December 20, 2005, my husband Jerome, Cielo and I were at National Book Store. Then I saw this book entitled “99 Ways to Get Your Kids to do Their Homework (And Not Hate It) by Mary Leonhardt. We bought it. I thought it was interesting for mothers (and fathers, too!) especially that parents are always wrestling with concerns on how to get their children to love homework assignments, and school works.

From the book which touched on tips for preschoolers, elementary school, junior high, high school and about gifted children, I just picked out some guidelines which to me are applicable at this time and age:

You may have to help your children get organized when they first have homework assignments. Some parents have set the rule to let their children do it immediately as soon as they get home from school; others would allow them to do homework after dinner, or it would depend on the degree of difficulty of the assignment or the perfect timing that children feel they want or should do it, as long as they are bent on getting it all done before bedtime.

As long as they are happily working, leave them alone. Giving children “freedom” or “space” to a certain extent is very important. We need to let them feel that they are responsible to do things. In doing homeworks, there are times we have to give our children the opportunity to focus on a problem and discover a solution for it. When they tend to dwell too long on one item, it could be difficult -then it’s the time for parents to come to the rescue.

If your children ask for help, try to make it seem as though they’re teaching you, rather than the other way around. Ask what the teacher had discussed about it. Let them feel that you are listening to what they are saying. Instead of pointing out directly how to solve the problem, it is advised to gently lead your children to proceed or do the next steps. A little help is fine, but it turns out to be a daily or nightly routine, then it’s either the children has stopped trying of the homework is too difficult to do.

Do provide children with any books or materials they need for homework. All books and other reference materials must be within reach. It is easier to study and understand what we are reading if all the reference materials are gathered in one place.

Keep casual track of how your children are doing. Parents don’t need to oversee everything that children do. Being “casual” means having a general view of what the children are doing or studying, but it doesn’t mean calling the school all the time to check on things. We must trust our children enough to believe that they are capable of doing things with little or no supervision at all. 

Avoid giving your children the idea that there is only one right way to do things. Letting the children explore. Doing things themselves would cultivate in them a sense of self-reliance and self-confidence, in cases when nobody else is there to assist them to prepare them for more serious academic work, when parents are no longer there to go over the assignments.

Never let any of their assignments interfere with their independent reading. There should be enough time for doing assignments and developing the love and habit of reading. Elementary school is the best time to establish a solid foundation for grammar, mathematics and other disciplines. 

Encourage independent writing as well. It was learned that one big reason why students do poorly in English and in other subjects is the inability to write well. Psychomotor skills are developed through writing as well as thinking skills. Children should be trained to express their feelings through writing.

See if you can keep your children going to the library. A trip to the library once in a while is helpful. They should be taught that the library is the storehouse of knowledge, the place where they do research assignments and learn the value of persistence. Locating books via the card catalogue system will be a good learning exercise.

Discourage reliance on television, videos or computers for entertainment. Recent studies show that children who have too much n television perform rather poorly in academics. Television is addictive and restricts or hampers creativity, loses their love for reading and make them feel isolated and different. Computers can do wonders, but I support the author’s notion that children should be outside playing with neighbors and friends to develop interpersonal skills, reading or listening to stories  than being glued to the computer.

Keep firmly in mind that grades don’t count in elementary school; skill level counts. As parents, we would want our children to achieve more than we did, but it is more important that they learn doing things their own way. Spoonfeeding them or helping them in every homework will not prepare them to accept responsibility. We can tell them that homeworks are not really our main concern, we are concerned more on their being responsible to do things assigned to them.

The bottomline is, as parents, we must find the balance between supporting their children and instilling a sense of responsibility and accomplishment that will guide them through their studies and life in the real world. (FAEAG)

Aside from its many victories through the years, the BNHS BLDT Group, the first place winner in the provincial Hadla nga Bol-anon folk dance competition (Dec.12, 1986), also got the championship trophy in the Regional Sayawit Folk Dance Festival (Jan.16, 1987) in Cebu City for its Kuratsa Boholana-Kuradang presentation.

When Mama Wincie availed of the Early Retirement Program and left for New York City, USA on June 24, 1989, Mr. Real has dutifully led the group to new opportunities. The values Mama Wincie learned from Lolo Aloy and Lola Pining and her experiences in life are all reflected in the lines of the Bukang Liwayway Dance Troupe theme song she composed in Sept.1988, completed in Aug. 2004 on the occasion of BLDT’s 25th anniversary and which she memorized by heart: ‘Bukang liwayway, s’yang nagbibigay buhay, pagod at pawis tinatamasa, hindi pinapansin, kutyain ma’t hamakin, layunin lamang ay natupad; paghihirap dulot sa puso, alay lamang sa Diyos at tao.’ Recalling the moments since 1979, and looking forward to the 30th anniversary of the group in 2009 is indeed a significant milestone. With this humble endeavor, it is hoped that former members of Bukang Liwayway Dance Troupe will be bound in reminiscence of those wonderful years with the group.

1)   Dyndyn, the conscientious career woman,
              almost 14 years now with the Cathay Pacific Airways fleet,
              among the best in the world

2) Blast from the past. Dyndyn at center, wearing Cathay’s third
     uniform (from 1954-1962), with other crew. (Uniforms are just
    some of the designs worn Cathay Pacific’s 60 years of service) 
                                                                                                                                       
3)  Dyndyn with a supervisor and a pilot.

4) As “hands-on” mom to 16-month-old son Neil Francis, the youngest

5) Happiness is being with her family in
Hong Kong: with husband Arthur Dave,
Nicole, Natalie and Neil.
   
The following lines were taken from Edward Lear’s “The Owl and the Pussycat:” “The owl and the pussycat went to the sea, in a beautiful pea-green boat. They took some honey and plenty of money, wrapped up in a five-pound note…And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, they danced by the light of the moon, the moon, the moon. They danced by the light of the moon.” Those lines have been etched in my memory since our elementary years at Holy Spirit School. The poem was a favorite piece of Dyndyn, my oh-so-pretty and smart classmate back then.

When I e-mailed her last week to ask for information about herself, she did reply after a Taipei flight and told me she was so busy from arranging her eldest daughter's 12th birthday party which was followed by a 'sleep-over.' The celebration lasted for three (3) days. She was also in the thick of things for the barbecue cum Halloween party attended by more than 50 people, plus more than 30 kids, in the CX (Cathay Pacific) community where they live in Laguna City, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Geraldee “Dyndyn” Vallejo Campbell – Balbona, born on July 27, 1970 in Sta. Mesa, Manila, is the eldest of three (3) children and the only daughter of John Mumar Campbell from Bool, Tagbilaran City, assistant cashier of PNB-Tagbilaran before he retired in 1992 to immigrate to the United States with his family, and Azucena Lupiba Vallejo from Calape, an elementary teacher, who, before retiring from the service, was principal of Dao and Bool Elementary Schools and now works at the Department of Motor Vehicles in San Jose, California. Mrs. Campbell was also Mama Wincie’s co-performer, among the original cast of the very first staging of the Blood Compact “Sandugo” re-enactment here in Bohol in the late ‘70s or early ‘80s, with no less than Gen. Carlos P. Romulo, the first Asian to serve as president of the United Nations General Assembly (1949) and the only Filipino journalist to win the Pulitzer Prize, as guest of honor.

Dyndyn was a consistent honor student (and best speaker) in elementary, graduated salutatorian in high school (Holy Spirit School) and finished her bachelor’s degree in medical technology at Velez College in Cebu City. She took the 1991 licensure examination, passed, but never really practiced her profession as a medical technologist nor proceeded to medical school, as others would have opted. The walk-in interview in February 1993 ushered her way to exciting travel opportunities as flight attendant after she joined Cathay Pacific Airways, Ltd., a Hong Kong-based airline. Enjoying almost 14 years in the fleet, she’s currently a flight purser, in-charge of a cabin. (Cathay Pacific Airways is celebrating its 60th anniversary. Passengers love the different uniforms the crew wear at one flight since everyone look colorful and quite interesting, giving them a blast from the past.) 

In between flights or during her spare time (which isn’t much), she likes to read everything from fiction/ thriller to autobiographies, to the 'Lonely Planet'. Traveling and visiting places tops her list of favorite “things,” which, of course, she admits, was why she joined CX in the first place. Other than the Philippines, the Balbonas have picked their favorite family destinations: Bali and Phuket in Thailand for its wonderful beaches, relaxing atmosphere and great food; Singapore (it’s green, clean and the food's great, too!) and San Francisco and San Jose in California where her parents and brothers live, because the kids love the theme parks there. She hopes to bring her family to Europe, especially to London, Paris and Rome when the kids are bigger and more mature to absorb its culture.

Her personal favorite CX (Could also be package inclusive of airfare, hotel + transfer) ports are Singapore, Bangkok and Japan.  “I love to eat, as you have probably guessed by now, and I like trying different cuisines. Thai and Japanese food are among my all-time favorites. As for Paris (France), “the place just sweeps you away! You might think it's cliché, but it definitely is one of the most romantic places in the world!” According to her, she likes London (England) because of the theatres and still cries every time she watches  “Ms. Saigon.” (Sappy, huh?) Sydney (Australia) holds a special place in her heart since it was her first 'long haul flight.' San Francisco is never dull as it has such diverse culture, aside from the fact that her family lives nearby, which she considers an added bonus! (Once in a while, she spends time with her parents and younger brothers Jude, 34, married, formerly with the United States Air Force and now working at Valleymaid County Hospital in San Jose, California and Robert Glenn, 32, still single, a practicing lawyer, specializing in immigration, divorce, family laws and wills in Stockton, California.)

Dyndyn married her longtime college boyfriend, Arthur Dave “Ardee” Balbona from Cebu City, who is now the front office manager of Langham Hotel, a five-star hotel in Hong Kong and they’ve just celebrated our relationship's 19th anniversary. (****, has it really been that long ?!?)  The union was blessed with three lovely kids namely: Nicole Marie (12 y.o.), Natalie Elizabeth (4 y.o.) and Neil Francis (16 mos. old). She is delighted that her kids do well in school. Nicole is a constant 'academic proficiency awardee' and was 'Best in French' last school year at the Christian Canadian-French International School. Though still in lower kindergarten, Natalie had an “academic achievement award” of which she's very proud of (she says she's like her Ate Nikki whom she idolizes).

The once Miss Teen Tagbilaran 1988 and Miss Cebu Tourism '92 runner-up says she’s pretty much a “hands-on mom” who enjoys baking, swimming, biking or just playing with the kids. Dyndyn tries to be involved with their growth as much as she can. “Time flies so fast, I wouldn't want to regret anything! My husband even teases me saying, if there was an award for the most active and dedicated Mom, then, it would go to me since I'm a constant 'volunteer Mom' in school…I'd have to say my children give me constant joy (and that's an understatement!). They, literally, give me strength, an energy boost, even after a 14-hour flight from San Francisco! I guess all mothers out there would understand what I'm trying to say.”
'Live each day as if it were your last' has always been her guiding line. “I try to do my best in everything, from my line of work to being a 'mom.' I try not to worry too much... as it can cause needless burden and stress which no one needs, ‘though this part is and always will be a constant struggle for me.   I guess it's human nature to think too much!” she quips. As a perennial head-turner, I am sure that Dyndyn is one of the ladies to watch in the 25th anniversary reunion of our HSS Elementary Class of 1983 in July 2008. – Fiel Angeli E.
