Welcome, rogamz! Dinhi gyud nimo mabatyagan ang living democracy ug freedom of speech. Hinuon naa man pud ta'y mga referees nga andam magpabugnaw ug magbukal-bukal na ang kukabildo.

It is always heartwarming to hear of somebody not from Bohol, and a foreigner at that, who feels so connected to our beautiful island that he considers it for retirement ... I myself am homeward-bound, even if I am still in my career prime. I'll be working in nearby Cebu, but I'll be home in Bohol weekends. Bohol is such a small neighborhood, so I look forward to seeing you around

Join the fun. Don't be bothered by the switching of language from English to Visayan,and vice versa. You can always request for a translation.

Valencia - Bohol / Re: Welcome To Valencia!

Dili Pads. Taga-Candijay akong Papa, pero nagpuyo mi sa Jagna taman 6, unya nilangyaw na mi sa Mindanao. Maagian lang nako ang Valencia. Naa akong pamilya sa Tagbilaran. Basta Bohol hinuon, bisag asa, feels like home!

I just read the manifesto made by former mayors Butalid, Rocha and Torralba calling for the disbandment of the Mayor Dan Lim's task force. Given some members' complicity in serious crimes such as intimidation, drug-dealing, and what-have-you, it is high time their activities are brought to higher authorities and the person giving them protective blanket also called into account.

With the election campaign in full swing, are our regional law-enforcers too preoccupied? I hate to see Bohol thrown back to medieval politics.

Thanks for this much-needed advice. I've widened the area for my house-hunting to Mandaue near CDU where I will be working. I've received a few other recommendations, so I guess I'll have a number of places to check out when I arrive in Cebu next month.

From most livable city in the Philippines, murag mahulog na gyud nga most dreaded city ang Tagbilaran if swertes operators and drug pushers remain under the protective umbrella of the powers-that-be. By chance ra ba nga parehong Blanco ang nasakpan aning illegal activities? Unsa naman ang nahitabo sa unang Blanco nga nadakpan sa swertes? I am sure the mayor, who earlier came to the aid of Manolo Blanco, would cry foul over a supposed politically motivated frameup.

Looking at this on a cold, wet, dreary day, I feel it's such a bright, warm welcome. I'm so looking forward to being back home!

Wow, my retirement dream is to till a farm and a vegetable garden. Unsa kahang mga temperate zone veggies and mutubo sa ato? Dagko ba ang radish diha Raqs? Kay dire sa Japan murag abaga kadako, tam-is-tam-is bisag kilawon, isawsaw lang sa mayonnaise, uban sa redwine, lami kaayo. Pero we have not succeeded in growing it in our Bohol backyard.

Hi JellyBean,

Thanks for the update. So there's still one on the loose? I hope the last one will also be brought back to the fold of the law.

Bitaw Bay Hubs, di ko gusto maabta'g tungkod dire's tugnaw nga dapit. Hinuon 45 pa man ko, pero pila ra'y panahon. Maayo nang makapanukad pud ta's ato samtang baskog pa.

Pareho diay tang hadlokan ug horror house--kanang dulom nga naa'y kalit mosiga. He he

Duha na gyud ka dekada Bay. Murag halos dungan lang mi Jun Ayag nigawas. Pirmi man hinuon ko sa ato. Until about six years ago, naa ko'y gamay nga business sa Makati, I was here almost every month. Wala lang gyud ko ka experience puyo sa Pilipinas for one straight month during the time I lived in Japan.

As I have mentioned before, I am basically self-employed in Japan with a home-based translation/documentation work. My boss at the Japanese joint project with one of the medical schools in Cebu was one of my regular clients. That's why I was able to negotiate flex-time work for the first three months--just four to five hours a day--to give myself time to settle and set up. September pa ko mag-full time gyud. I also have an offer to teach in the evening in one of the private universities. I'm giving this a serious thought, since teaching is something I really love to do.

Sige Bay, pa-tour guide ko nimo sa Cebu, bisag dire lang sa forum. Murag kulbaan ko sa imong favorite hangouts, pwede kaha ko diha?

Hi Bambi,

It's nice to see how you've survived everything and still keep that positive outlook in life. I know we'll all come to the crossroads. Hinundumon lang pirmi nato nga if He brings us to it, He will also bring us through it. Bitaw, sunod nimo bakasyon, kanang bakasyon gyud. Naingnan ta na ba ka na bottom up na nako tong imong red wine last February when I went home, lami kaayo! Thanks!

Sa Cebu ko Pads, at least duol na gyud sa home sweet home! Lihog lang ko ampo for a soft transition, labi na sa bag-ong living environment kay wa na ko naanad sa big city. As far as work, OK lang man kay Japanese company and the work itself is what I really like to do.

Bitaw, Belle, in-ani diay ning mamalhinay ka, daghan kaayo'g impakihon. Luckily, Paolo is around to help me do the heavier stuff. The stressful part is perhaps not only moving the things, but also the memories. That Japan is still freezing like winter in late April, which is really a freak weather, helps us look forward to sunshine.

How To Tips / Re: Gusto ka malingaw? Learn another language!
« on: April 24, 2010, 04:59:01 PM »
Making a living from languages, I can only agree with everything that is said here. The advantage with developing a specialty in major foreign languages is that you can be your own boss, you get paid handsomely relative to your working hours, you can bring your work anywhere--and your client or employer can make a special accommodation for you if he really needs your services.

But to make this a viable source of livelihood, you must concentrate on a major foreign language--one that is widely used in trade, commerce, profession or academe. You must also cultivate a broad client base--individual and corporate--to have a stable income. I make sure I have one or two corporate clients that take care of my overhead and family needs.

I speak, read and write Japanese, English, Spanish, Cebuano, Tagalog (including Binol-anon) and Ilonggo. I get most of my work from Japanese-English, English-Japanese, Japanese-Cebuano and Japanese-Tagalog. With more than 100,000 Filipinas married to Japanese, translation for legal and court procedures is a specialized profession by itself.

Gusto mo mutuon ug Japanese? See you in Cebu in June.

Why should I learn a language?[/size]

Learning a foreign language takes time and dedication. The reasons below may help to convince you to take the plunge, if such persuasion is needed. Some reasons are practical, some aspirational, some intellectual and others sentimental, but whatever your reasons, having a clear idea of why you're learning a language can help to motivate you in your studies.

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.
If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
(Nelson Mandela)

Nag-impake na. Homeward bound na gyud ang hunahuna ug kasing-kasing. Daghan gyud diay manggawas nga butang nga desisyonan kung imong dad-on o ilabay inig balhin nimo'g puy-anan ug trabaho! Murag mutuo na ko nga top 3 stressors sa tao mao ning mga panghitabo sa kinabuhi:

1. death in the family
2. divorce
3. relocation

The difference with relocation, as contrasted with the other two, is that you can actually look forward to a change in career and living environment.
