Hi, Sir!

Yah, I remember you from Yahoo...the former youth leader of Panglao, right?

Indeed, I am very happy that Mama Wincie has taken on her interest / cultural inclination even if I know how busy she is with work there...

Papa Rep is here in Tagbilaran City. My husband Jerome and I convinced Mama Wincie to bring him home from New York (after episodes in the hospital and nursing homes) during that time Lola Pining (his mother-in-law, Mama's mother) died in January 2006 so he could see her for the last time. After all, they/ we have live together for so many years, more than the time Papa Rep stayed with his parents. I have lived with my maternal grandmother for almost 36 years. The 34 years of that she spent in total darkness due to glaucoma. When my US immigration notice came in 2003, she told me that I cannot leave the country kung buhi pa siya. Now that she's gone and my sick father is here, feeling nako geriatric ward na kaha jud mi. Inspite of that, I am just so blessed and thankful to have a very loving, caring and considerate husband, Honey Jerome from Siquijor, who is so supportive where it concerns care for Lola Pining and Papa Rep. Now I feel that I must have done something good in this lifetime (or in my past life probably) to deserve such a good husband. There's no price tag on that.

Papa Rep is sick, cannot really move his legs and feels he cannot walk due to diabetes, arthritis, etc. He had stroke (twice already) but was lucky to have survived without being paralyzed or without being dependent on insulin (mahal bya jud kaayo ang mga tambal karon). Sorry, I cannot give you the exact medical description. I consider myself a stranger in that department. I must say, though, that compared to the time he was in the States when he took 8 kinds of medicines everyday, he is better off here in the Philippines, although at times he likes to recall and talk about the time he was mayor and how he encountered unscrupulous and corrupt officials in government (samukan na jud kaayo mi maminaw kay balik-balik, but I believe there's truth to his accounts)who, in my younger days, I looked up to as models. Pathetic! When I was ten years old, I was up on stage campaiging for my father when he aspired for the mayoralty position in Panglao long before or a year before Kris Aquino did her much-publicized act to campaign for Ninoy Aquino (1970 man ko, si KA 1971). What i mean is, it's so frustrating to think that those government officials I've looked up to before have skeletons in the closet - they have enriched themselves using the people's money... Our family even made a major sacrifice nga wa mi nag-balay even if we have acquired the building materials by installment or "hulog-hulogan" when he was still working in the bank owned by the Laurels in Cebu. Tungod sa kadugay, naabtan na nuon na mayor si Papa and he had to give up that major position in the bank para lang mag-"mayor" after he was persuaded by LoloTio. g***!!! I still can remember we were the "poorest "First Family" in Bohol during that time. In Papa's 6-year term, I can only count with the fingers of my left hand the time we appeared in official functions kay mauwaw mi kay "pobre" ra mi... Worst, because dili na moabot namo ang sweldo ni Papa kay nahurot na kay daghan mangayo - a big factor for a domestic squabble. Pila ra god pod intawn and sweldo ni Papa as mayor? Wa intawn mi laing gisaligan except si Mama. Papa was not the kind of mayor nga daghang negosyo man god - kakha-tuka ra bya jud pod mi. To save her sanity, Mama Wincie, aside from keeping the family together in Tagbilaran (while Papa was in Panglao) put her energy into her PE teaching profession at Bohol National High School and artistic passion as founder of the Bukang Liwayway Dance Troupe. We hated politics! We still do... The only "sakyanan" that we had then was a "second-hand" Willis jeep which my parents bought with the P48,000 that Mama won in the Sweepstakes. In all those 6 years with Papa entwined in Panglao politics, I can just count the times naka-gamit mi sa jeep because tua sa Panglao kay gikargahan og masakiton nga gihatod sa hospital or other concerns sa "servicio publico." Sa September 8, 2004 pa intawon mibarog ang bag-ong bay nga gipatukod ni Mama, which is a work in progress up to now. Mao nang nagpakabuktot intawn si Mama og trabaho sa America because of the house that our family greatly deserves - HONEST MONEY RA JUD TAWN NA - dili kinorupt ..At least, ang among pamilya wa'y angay ikauwaw sa mga tawo sa Panglao. If there were times that na-introduce ko as daughter of former Panglao mayor, it was during one of those times na judge na ko og contests upon invitation of Ma'am Nila and Sir Ondo Montero and Mayor Dumaluan. Allow me also to clarify that contrary to reports from some quarters in Panglao, "I am not a balimbing kay kinakontrahan jud na nako. Just because I was a judge during a different administration and an emcee in the inauguration of another administration doesn't mean balimbing ko. I just want to help in my own simple way - through culture and arts and NOBODY can ever take that away from me... Bisag hatagan pa ko'g kwarta para paliton along principio, dili nako ibaligya akong dignidad. Pobre ka mi but duha mi hugot nga principio sa mong pamilya - thanks to Papa Rep and Mama Wincie for that.

...In June 2004 when I was invited to be the lady of ceremonies of the separate oath-taking ceremonies of the group of a splintered group in the Sangguniang Bayan, this "HALANGDON" approached me and told me "DAY, INGNA IMONG PAPA NGA PA-ANDAMON OG KWARTA PARA MOLANSAD KA'G COUNCILOR (SA PANGLAO)." I answered him, "I don't have to be a politician to help people." He said "Lahi ra man jud, Day, (kung politiko ka)." In my mind, I was raring to tell him "Honestly, Sir, I don't need to run or to be in politics to be popular, if that's what motivate people to enter politics - the so-called popularity, fame, what have you... Aside from that, wa ko'y kwarta nga ipamudmud para ipamalit og boto sa mga tawo nga haguka og baruganan nga  nagbaligya sa ilang kaugmaon" Pero, I didn't want to be impolite to that "HONORABLE" public official that's why I chose not to blurt everything out. PERO GRABE JUD KAAYO TO'NG INSULTO SA AKONG PAGKATAWO ANG IYANG GIPAMULONG.

Sorry, I've gone out of context, Sir. I must admit I am so emotional about politics - such a "dirty" game. Kung naa pa'y word nga molabaw sa "dirty," mao na na...I am just reminder because of the recent turn-out of the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections here in the local scene. The public is supposed to have the liverty to choose their leaders, but the real scenario is, DILI NA PINILIAY BUT PINALITAY NGA GARAPAL. NO wonder the Philippines is going down the drain. 

Anyway, ani lang ko kutob kay taas na kaayo akong litaniya...Nakapahungaw ko after a long time, bisag dili tanan... at least, di na ko magkondenar...


Thanks for remembering my father.

I have always been sentimental about the place. I've lived there since 1970 and I can't imagine leaving the place, although we have already moved into a new and bigger house (at the back of the old house) which has a good view of Tagbilaran Bay. yah, I remember Ms. Fe Garcia from Talibon, the godmother of my brother Ondoy Reparato Anthony, who's now a nurse in Pearland, Texas.

Hi!


I purposely expanded my Yahoo, Friendster, Bolanon.com, Ringo and siquijor.ilovemyprovince.org networks as support campaign for my Panglaonon friend, Anna Maris Arcay Igpit, Miss Bohol Sandugo 2005 and Binibining Pilipinas – World 2006, who represented the Philippines in the Miss World pageant in Warsaw, Poland in September 2006, that’s why I tried as much as I can to reach out to many people through the internet. It was my simple manifestation of support for Maris who I know represented the best of Bohol and the Philippines during that time.

The process of “scavenging,” or to put it lightly, being “resourceful” in gathering e-mail addresses started with going over my collection of business cards of the people I met before I entered the government service and of those people I don’t even know. I require complete names when I save my contacts in Yahoo. As in the case of married women, aside from their middle names, I also asked for their mothers’ maiden names after my Bohol National High School schoolmate Zipporah A. Fortich – Orion, now a nurse in Texas, informed me that she was able to trace her relatives through my mailing list.

Sir Jun, if my memory serves me right, I think I got your name from the Tigum Bol-anon sa Tibuok Kalibutan (TBTK) souvenir program last year. After then-Councilor-now-City Vice-Mayor Jose Antonio Salera Veloso asked me to organize the TBTK Festival Welcome Program, he gave me a copy of the TBTK souvenir program and I copied all the e-mail addresses I came across with which I saved in Yahoo. Then, after the Maris Igpit support campaign followed the Tagbilaran City Fiesta, Sandugo / TBTK and voters’ education info materials for the May 14, 2007 general elections. I think it was from there that Mike saw my contacts whom he eventually invited to Tubag Bohol. (Speaking of Mike Ligalig, Jerome, Cielo and I extend our condolences to the Ligalig Family.)

As I’ve stated beforehand, one doesn’t have to be a politician to help people or make ripples in their respective fields of endeavor (besides, AN HONEST CANDIDATE WILL NOT WIN WITHOUT MONEY as again proven in Monday’s barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections – PATHETIC! Maayo gani kay wa pa ma-"corrupted" ang federated parents-teachers association and alumni officers elections - at least, ang mga pobre nga pareha nako nga wa'y ikapamudmud nga kwarta para ikapalit og buto duna pa'y higayon nga makahatag og "tinuoray o tiunay nga serbisyo") - my challenge is information dissemination in the simple way that I can. 

Sir Jun, Bran, Elsie (St. Agnes), and Angie Gulle, thanks for the inspiring messages. I am truly honored.

KNOCK-OUT TIGDAS NATIONAL MEASLES VACCINATION OCT.15-NOV.15, 9-48 MONTH OLD CHILDREN. In 1998, the Philippines adopted a ten-year plan to eliminate measles with initial catch-up mass immunization targeting all children aged 9 months to 14 years, “follow-up” campaign targeting usually childredn9 to 59 month of age every 4-5 years,  keep-up strategy and improved surveillance including laboratory confirmation of suspect measles cases. Failure of the routine program to reach every child have resulted in accumulation of an estimated 2.5 million susceptible children since 2004.This year, the Department of Health (DOH) is targeting 9 million children who are between 9 months to 48 months old, whose dates of birth fall on October 15, 2003 to January 15, 2007 in all barangays to be given free measles vaccination regardless of immunization status. A child older than this age group and who never received measles vaccination shall also be given. Here in the City, the “Knock-out Tigdas” door-to-door measles elimination campaign started last October 15 at the Tagbilaran City Hall Atrium. Speaking on behalf of City Mayor Dan Neri Lim, Vice-Mayor Jose Antonio S. Veloso expressed all-out support for the campaign. DOH Regional Director Susana K. Madarieta, with DOH-Bohol’s Dr. Portia Datahan - Reyes graced the program and did the “ceremonial patak” to the identified recipients from the different barangays. Other services offered are the giving of Vitamin A supplementation and deworming. The activity aimed at reducing the number or pool of children at risk of getting measles or being susceptible to measles and to achieve at least 95 % measles immunization coverage was coordinated by Dr. Antonio M. Porticos, Dr. Aleth Tago, Nenette Relamida and the City Health Office personnel. (Fiel Angeli E. Araoarao – Gabin, City Information Officer / Photo by Bern Alturas, City Health Office)

Hello, Mr. Ayag!

Leo P. Udtohan did tell me that you were here in Bohol, at about the same time my husband and I were facilitating the Bohol tour of his relatives from Siquijor and coninciding also the mall tour of the Mutya sa Cogon 2007 candidates at ICM that we were coordinating...

I see that you are one of the respected leaders here at Tubag Bohol. I would have been honored to meet you in person during that occasion...

I learned about this TB through Mike... This time, I am quite "stingy" with my posts here, but I do disseminate whatever info I have through Friendster (1581 contacts), Yahoo (1700+ contacts), and other groups in the internet as well, whenever I can.

I must say that Mike and all others concerned, you included, have done a great deal of work to sustain this group. KUDOS! I hope that this will continue to be a channel through which we can share our ideas for the betterment of the province that we all love...

Hi, St. Agnes! Bitaw, Els, nice to see you again! You are so charming in your photos, especially in Friendster...

I do miss our AUDIO - Bohol days, working for the association and all that ... For some reasons (BEYOND my control - of the "powers" that be), I have hibernated since August 2005 after the RADIO regional convention in Bohol which was also the end of my 3-year term as president ... I am still doing information dissemination activities, though...

Ayo-ayo pod...

FROM MY FRIENDSTER PROFILE - PARA CONSISTENT


About Me:

I am basically an artistically-inclined person, very appreciative of the simple, but beautiful things in life. I like a bit of fashion (:-), even in my own simple ways (after meeting many people, I have learned that "taste" or "glamor" is not in the price - it's in the poise and bearing, also according to Madonna).

For so many years, I have been involved in endeavors or undertakings for the preservation and promotion of culture and the arts and tourism (probably because of my love for humanities and my ultimate dream of going to Europe, which, up to now, remains an elusive dream). I am equally supportive of / I love organizing writing, speaking, spelling, dancing contests and beauty pageants for young people and I am bent on pursuing this as my personal mission for self-actualization.  I remember before I was a contestant in all those events (winning some, losing some - part of the learning process), but now I have been given the privilege to be a judge... I believe that God has a purpose for everything that happens in our lives.

My 10-year-old daughter AJ Wincielou Johanna "Cielo" (a Grade 5 pupil of Holy Spirit School) shares with my interests in communication arts, social studies, humanities and geography, though she takes after her Papa Jerome for the "love" of mathematics and science.

Most of all, I am very proud of my loving husband Jerome John and my darling daughter Cielo, my most-cherished blessings from God, and for Papa Rep (Derclo Reparato Bongoyan Araoarao, Tagbilaran City and Danao, Panglao, Bohol - former Philippine Banking Corporation employee and mayor of Panglao, Bohol in 1980-1986 who taught us to be honest always in all our dealings with people), Mama Wincie (Wincesa Balatero Espejo Araoarao, Manhattan, New York and Tagbilaran City, Bohol - the very dedicated Physical Education teacher of Bohol National High School and founder of the Bukang Liwayway Dance Troupe whose artistic passion, generosity, and dedication to duty greatly influenced us), my brother Reparato Anthony "Ondoy" (nurse, The Methodist Hospital in Texas, USA)- with Gracelyn Shiela (Gallego - Tubal) and Baby Reese Lauren in Pearland, Texas - and sisters Ann Claire "Bibby" (serving in the United States Army) - with Jabron (M. Young), Jalen Matthew, Jayla Marie and Jordan Michael in Petersburg, Virginia - and Coeli Marie "Chelli" (website designer and artist) -with Seth Vincent and Alex (Ruiz) in Tampa, Florida. I also cherish fond memories of Lola Pining (Josefina Mercader  Balatero) - class valedictorian of St. Joseph College (now Holy Spirit School) in 1938, Lolo Aloy (Hilario Araro Espejo) - former barangay captain of Cogon, Tagbilaran in the late '50s and my younger sister Hannah Gay...

Being brought up in a poor family, Papa Rep, Mama Wincie, my brother Ondoy and my sisters Bibby and Chelli and I believe that money is important, but IT'S NOT EVERYTHING IN LIFE. You cannot buy talent and it's one of the many things that we are so thankful to God for.

Money can't buy happiness. There are other "things," the so-called "intangibles" that matter like spiritual enrichment, love and harmony in the family, respect, the blessings of good health, and true friends.

Also, I believe that one doesn't have to speak Filipino, the national language, to be "patriotic" or "nationalistic," or that "ang mga 'pobre' dili angay nga magpadaug-daug sa mga adunahan"... We all have equal opportunities in life if we just work hard...Anyway, we have different paths to tread...

I hope that people, especially the financially-privileged, will look around, realize and put into practice generosity by sharing their blessings with the less-fortunate...I tell you, there are a lot of things you can do to help the needy...

Since my elementary years, I 've always aspired to travel abroad, see the most spectacular places on earth in my lifetime, but till now, I am still stuck here in Bohol...nevertheless, I am doing my best to make use and share with others what I have...

When I am gone, I wish my loved ones and friends would remember me as the Miss Tagbilaran 1987 who became City Information Officer of Tagbilaran City...

Lastly, I believe that one doesn't have to enter politics / be a politician to be able to help other people. If you want to help, do it whenever you can, whenever you have the chance...



Who I Want to Meet:

I would like to re-connect with my family, relatives - ARAOARAO, ESPEJO, BONGOYAN, and BALATERO clans, friends, former classmates in the elementary (HSS), high school (BNHS) and college, even masteral days (DWC-T); unpretentious and sincere people; TAGBILARANONS, PANGLAOANONS, BOHOLANOS and FILIPINOS who have gone to establish themselves in other provinces in the Philippines and even in foreign soils whose lives serve as inspiration to others. Also, I want to network with individuals and associations or entities sharing with my passion for culture and the arts; young people who have exhibited remarkable talents and boundless potentials who are willing to share interesting insights and could become good role models in our contemporary society because I firmly believe that our young generation needs good role models. I also want to meet my husband's relatives from SIQUIJOR, SIQUIJOR (the GABINS and the JUMAWANS) and those who are now settled in other provinces; and beauty queens as well.

CONGRATULATIONS! MSGR. CRISPIN BARRETE VARQUEZ OF SEVILLA,BOHOL,NEW BISHOP OF BORONGAN,SAMAR

Honey Jerome, Cielo and I join in the celebration of thanksgiving of the entire Boholano people on the occasion of the Episcopal Ordination of Msgr. Crispin Barrete Varquez of Sevilla, Bohol last October 18 at the Cathedral Parish of Saint Joseph the Worker in Tagbilaran City, Bohol.

Thanks to General Manager Liezl Lim – Gregorio and Production Manager Oscar Ted Durban Avanzado for making possible the coverage and airing of ceremony last night in the local channel of the Bohol Community Cable Television Systems, Inc. (BCCTV).

Presiding the ordination was Msgr. Leo Medroso of the Diocese of Tagbilaran. It was attended by 16 bishops from all over the country, members of the clergy of the Dioceses of Tagbilaran and Talibon, Bohol, the religious/ devotees and laity who have been working and cooperating with Msgr. Bai during his previous assignments as parish priest prior to the Episcopal Ordination especially at the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish (K of C) Church (succeeded by Rev. Fr. Gerardo ‘Jingboy’ Saco) at Poblacion 2 and at the Cathedral Parish of Saint Joseph the Worker (succeeded by Rev. Fr. Jeffrey Malanog).

His first assignment as bishop will be in Borongan, Samar.

Msgr. Bai is well-loved by the people. I remember him well as the down-to-earth, humble and soft-spoken parish priest of the Cathedral while I was coordinating the visit of the Holy Spirit School – Thailand Youth delegates from Kanlayaneesithammarat School of Nakhonsithammarat, Southern Thailand with Geraldine Gulle Daray – Pugoy at the Cathedral. 

Msgr. Bai has shown many good examples to his flock, especially during the Flores de Mayo and Santacruzan when Honey Jerome, Cielo and I would see him offer flowers for the Blessed Virgin Mary, something that not many priests do. 

Years ago, at the Mayor’s Office, I saw that he would personally follow up requirements of building permits for the improvement and beautification projects of the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish and the Cathedral of Saint Joseph the Worker while other parish priests entrust the task to their assistants.

Msgr. Bai, you will be greatly missed! We will never forget your good examples of humility and obedience!
