Tigum Bolanon Video Series
As a collaborator of the Tigum Bol-anon theme song I'm proud to present here a video series of said music. What an honor and privilege it is to be asked to write something about which I hope portrays the pride and dream of every uprooted-Boholano... and that is, the pure excitement and rare opportunity to visit our home province together with our fellow expatriates... experiencing and renewing acquaintances with long-lost friends and relatives... meeting new ones along the way and enjoying every "little bit" that Bohol has to offer - from food to history, from small family gatherings to little barrio fiestas, from re-aquainting the old neighborhood to anything that the eyes can behold for the time being spent at home: Bohol that is! (Fro 3/3/10)
A collection of video about the worldwide gathering of Boholanos, otherwise known as TBTK, Tigum Bol-anon Tibuok Kalibutan.
As the third official gathering of our fellow Boholanos con paisanos from all over the world is nearing its designated time come July 14-26, 2009, I would like to take this opportuned moment to extend to ALL OF YOU the invitation to attend this once-in-a-lifetime event and see-for-yourself how good it is to be home once more to see our beloved BOHOL, your loved ones & friends, and the many developments that may have transpired during the time when we were away, but more so the thought that we are "coming home" in great numbers to create this festive mood & atmosphere and thus relive this uniquely Bol-anon penchants for "fiestas," "tapok-tapok," "kaon-kaon," "inum-inom" and "chika-chika" as well as join our brothers & sisters back home in their yearly remembrances and reenactment of Bohol's rich cultural history of being a most-friendly-province-in-all-of-Pinoylandia that dates back to the mid-1500s. Come July 26, 2009, Bohol will be celebrating this yearly festivity we call SANDUGO, highlighted by the drumbeats and colourful revelry of a dancing street-parade, the re-enactment of the Blood Compact, the highly touted Boholana beauty pageants that have come a long way since its inception, and so much more. Lest you missed the many wonders Bohol is known for - now tagged as the Numero Uno tourists destination in all of the Philippines - I bid all of you to take this prospect and wonderful opportunity to ... "pauli sa Bohol, pinangga tang Bohol!" (Fro)
