Thanks to Bystander for his enlightenment.  Please bear with me.  I have no hurt feelings against this website. As I said earlier, this website is the best thing that ever happened to the Samarenos and Leytenos.  So I am happy for it. I am a Samareno (from Calbayog, by the way), and I want to participate in the activities of my kababayans. I have been residing here in Manila for more than 50 years.  If I hurt anybody, I'm sorry for it

Joke lang –

Ilokano: Sa amin sa Ilocos, sa dami ng tabako, nagroroloyo na lang kami ng malaking rolyo ng tabako at ibinibitin namin sa kalsada, Lahat ng may gusto doon na lang humihithit.

Bikolano: Sa amin sa Bicol, lahat ng tao mahilig sa sili.  Kaya pagbumabagyo, iyon ang una sinasagip.

Waray: Sa amin sa Samar at Leyte pag Palm Sunday, hindi na pumunta ang mga tao sa simbahan para magpa bless ng palaspas.

Sabay tanong ng dalawa: Bakit?

Waray: Kasi, ang mga pare na ang pumupunta sa mga niyogan at bini bless ang mga puno nito. Kaya doon na lang pumipitas ng palapas ang mga tao dahil bless na ito.

The Philippine Lame Duck Democracy.

We, Anti-Graft fighters, in the Philippines both in the private and public sectors are like the stupid general that goes to war who does not know his enemy and marches on to the battle field without his foot soldiers.  Naturally, we could not win our fight against government corruption. Please read more on this in the following web site:
http://anticorruption.homestead.com/LameDuckDemocracy.html

I am not a pro PGMA but ousting her will still not solve graft in the Philippine government that will continue to worsen because she is not the basic cause of corruption.  She is just doing what every person could do while occupying the powers at Malacanang.

Good day, fellow Samarenos.  I hope everybody is alright.  In case you feel sleepy, here's another joke –

Samareno: Kami mga taga Samar hindi na kami pumupunta sa Baguio

Tagalog : Bakit?

Samareno: Kasi ang bagyo na ang pumupunta sa amin.

To my fellow SSS pensioners in Samar: It's about time we lobbied for the increase in our pensions. With the meager amount that we receive every month, we can hardly cope with the continuous increase in the prices of prime commodities. If the President seems to be oblivious to our cause, being busy defending herself against her detractors, we appeal to our Congressmen in Samar to initiate the move in Congress.

Perhaps, the officials concerned don't realize that SSS pensioners, who are mostly elderlies or senior citizens, were the ones who built the SSS foundations with their monthly contributions. If it were not for them, the SSS would not have been what it is today.  Samar Congressmen: Kamo la an pwede mag duso sini.  Matuman kunta.

Man Cesar,

Salamat han imo pagduyog han pagka-urosa han mga Villahanon. An imo mga pag-hangyo nga kunta mawaray na adton pag-raugdaog han ig kasi tawo nga usahay naabot hin pag para han kinabuhi, diri la ha Villareal, ha Samar, kundi pati na ha bug-os nga Pilipinas.

An kadam-an nga asenso han mga pami-pamilya natikang han usa nga miembro nga aadto nag-antos han kamingaw, han pag pa-bata, han pag mal-tratoha han ira agaron, - ha harayo nga kalalawdan.

Damo liwat an nag-aagham hin pag-bulig ha mga "provincial hospital" basi man en-tawon inin mga kablasanon matagan hin eksakto nga pag-bulong og mapara an ngaran nga "Mona Lisa Hospital ha Samar", lugaring sugad han iyo guin padara nga usa ka "container" nga gamit para ha hospital waray man ini ig-abot ngadto han guin-papadangatan. Tingali bangin lugod ini didto abot han ukay-ukay.

Sanglit tama an imo panagamuyo nga ibahon na an aton paniplat ha aton bongto, ha aton probinsiya ngan ha aton nasud, kay kon diri ta ini susugaron, ngada la hit kahasta, magbibinalik-balik la inin sakit han aton sosiodad. Kon baga dide ha Europa, sugad-sugad la ini hin pag-balyo hin guardia nga pareho an panuyu-an.

Mas ma-upay kon mismo an aton mga politiko an una nga mag-papakita hin inungod nga pag-serbisyo ha mga tawo, an pag-protihar han aton mga kadagatan, sugad man han aton mga kagubatan nga naghahatag hin kabuhi ngan nagproprotihar han kinabuhi.

Patience, Federico, patience. Your earlier post is right there for everyone to see.  The owners of this website have other things to do and can't simply cater to one person.  You can post all you want pero maghintay ka naman!

Fifty years ago this month, Samar High School granted Diplomas unceremoniously but memorably to members of Class '56. Little is known about their individual achievement and glory after graduation, but their indelible marks in pursuit for knowledge and love of learning have raised the standard of excellence on their Alma Mater and have been a bench mark to the next generations of students. It's not easy to quantify these legacies of Class '56 in concrete terms, but higher forms of knowledge are almost always expressed in abstract forms from classical times to modern eras.

The Class of '56 entered a turbulent world of ideological struggle whose idealism was prematurily ended, and realism was hesitantly embraced. The promise of a successful life was as elusive as their dreams. The choices were few and obstacles were plentiful. However, members who persevered did not allow their idealism to diminish nor their realism to overwhelm, others went with the flow, if you will.

Today, members of Class '56 are free as they were 50 years ago, free to live, free to chose, and free to dream. Not a bad record after they passed the tests of 23 years of failed social experiment and 2 episodes of misguided regime changes of Edsa 1 and 2. Like the Greek goddess Prometheos, Class '56 will always live the promise of Samar High.

I had a message two days ago urging my kababayans to make careful evaluationz before making decisions about the ongoing signature campaign for the cha cha. Such message never came out in this website for whatever reason.  If such kind of message does not sit well with the people running the website, then I'm sorry for it, but don't you think they should have given me the courtesy of being advised they do not like the tenor of the message?  After all, i was just expressing my personal opinion, sans politics.

Hello,

I sing with a choir in New York City, and we are performing some Filipino folksongs, but have no translations!  Could anyone translate the song below into English?  It would be most appreciated.

LIMUKON UG PUNAY

May duha nga tamsi,
Limukon ug punay
Nga naghihilumlom
Hin gugma nga tunay
Waray aringaring
Bis nag-aandulaw
Kay nagkakasabot
Ha siplat, ha kulaw

Kay an mga tamsi
Waray pinulongan,
Waray gud yayaknon,
Waray paaliday
Kondi may higugma
Nga inuonongan
Kon nagsisigtangdo
Nagsisipagtuman

Kay sugad hit puthaw'
Ngan batobarani
Karuyag maghangkop
Ngan magkahirani
Basi makaglara
Hin
usa nga sanag
Nga pakakamatyan

We're also doing one called "Hinilawod" - does anyone know what language this is? I pa munu ku romay sugud nga iba lik sugi lanon datu gid sa gin sugidan rga disa gin munuan para rumgan taray tag pasnati tanay tagi

Thanks much,

At this writing, there is an ongoing signature campaign in favor of the proposed cha cha.  I am not discouraging anybody to sign or not to sign. All I want to say is that before making any decision about it, one must weigh carefully the advantages and disadvantages of the proposal. Whether you are for or against it, let us not be influenced by politicians with vested interests.  As for me, I'd rather be influenced by my own conscience and, most of all, by enlightenment from Almighty God. So be it to everybody.

Dear Ruben ngan Igkasi mga Villahanon, Paryentee, Umangkon, Patod o Diri:

Seguro maaram kamo nga firme ko guin dadasig iton aton pagka Villahanon ha bug-os nga kalibutan. Among all the towns in the 7,107 islands and with 87 million population, I am very, very proud of us.

Usa na ini nga kalsada ha Guinkasang-an ngadto ha bungto. For the first time in the history of the Philippines, nahitabo ini. Of course, we know that there are still 7 kms to be repaired and cemented. But things are moving. Kon diri la tungod hini nga mga lurong nga TRAPO, mga pareho hin bunot nga guin uuli hin na uro, bangin damo na gad unta an nabulig hini nga aton talagsahon nga Tiklos.

Hi onong hini nga politika, kay tungod nga mas harani seguro an akon blood relations with Bata Pepe, ngan lagas lagas na hiya intawon, compared to Boy Latorre, I gave him P10,000 when I was there in April 2004. Pero kay kadam-an ha aton diri man naruruyag na ha iya, for one reason or another, di okay la.

And there is Babam, I gave him P2,000. Pasaylo-an nala Mana Quintana. Diri ini karuyag sidngon nga diri kita pinalangga ug guin tatahod.

Mayor na hi Boy Latorre. Nagkamayada kita pagkarusa hin panhunahuna. Dida ha bungto, ha Manila, kami didi ha iba nga parte han Kalibutan, mga Lumalangyaw. Kaopay panhunahuna-on. And then when this crazy military people wanted to kill all those people because they disagree with them and with Gloria, I was writing articles and emails about the safety of Boy Latorre and others nga nakada kuno hito nga "Death List" nira.

Kita-a naton kon puede kita hin bag-o nga paniplat hiton aton bungto, hiton aton nasud, hiton aton pagka Pilipino.

Some of us are trying our best. Nagkakabarobalikad. Iton iba seguro aadto ha aton kabukiran, diri na natuod hini sistema, guin hahalad an ira kinabuhi para han Pilipinas. Makabibido, an mga kanugon nga kinabuhi nga ira guin hahalad para han Pilipinas.

Hi Ruben, diri na la ito hiya taga Sigad or Tayudnon. Respetado ito hiya ha Norway ngan European Union.

Iton iba nga mga Villahanon ha Langyaw, nagtatalinguha kita nga mahi-undong, diri na la iton Villa, pati bugos nga Pilipinas.

May-ada nagsurat ha akon ha akon denhi pangamuyo hi-onong hin mga estudyante dida ha UEP Campus ha Pinabacdao ngan hi-onong hiton mga fundo hiton barangay ngan mga cemento kuno hi-onong hini nga Tiklos Road.

Boy, o hino man, kon mayada kamo explanation hi-onong hini nga mga fundo han mga barrio, batona gad niyo.

Mahi-onong naman hini nga pangamuyo pagtambulig hadton karuyag mag-eskuela ha UEP campus ha Pinabacdao, tatalingu-haon naton an aton mahihimo.

Kadamo gad hini nga aton kabilinggan. Kay diri naman la kita liwat hini Villahanon didto ha Tayud o Lam-awan nga may kaparyentehan ha Inasudlan, ha Canmocat o ha Tingara. O ordinaryo nga natawo ha Solangan han damo pa an isda ngan rico pa an Maqueda Bay.

Pati na iton bug-os nga Pilipinas guin aapi naton han aton pagpalangga han aton nasud.

Sanglit bulig ha Guinsaugon, bulig han mga biktima han mudslides in Luzon in November 2004, tambulig han mga Lumads, pobre nga Kristiyano ngan Muslims ha Mindanao, bulig ha San Jose de Buan, an kalagasan ha mga Home for the Aged Ha Catbalogan nga nagpapalimos, mga kablas nga kabataan ha Hacienda Luisita, bulig han usa nga Inay nga guin priso pati iya 2-year old nga babaye nga anak ha Kapalong, Davao, mga paryentes nga nanginginahanglan hin tambulig, limos hadton mga namamatay hi-onong hini nga Runggiya ngan Kagi-osan, bulig ha Kapatiran Foundation ha Bansalan, Mindanao. Damo la.

Guin papakita naton an aton kasing-kasing ngan aton paghigugma nga diri halot, kay diri man kita kawatan ha gobyerno ha Samar o ha Pilipinas.

Sanglit, ini nga pangamuyo hadton mga Villahanon nga karuyag ipadayon an ira pag-aram ha UEP-Pinabacdao, pastilan, hulat hulat anay.

Ngan akon unta hingyap, kon iton aton mga panahon, aton mga brilliant ideas, ibuhos naton para han kaupayan han bongto, diri la dida hiton pagkabirubingkil, pag-yubit han aton igkasi Villahanon.

An aada ha Villa ngan Manila, project kita:

1. Limpyohan naton hin sighot an aton tungod.  The Potentials did this in 1996, a first in the entire island of Samar when they cleaned our seashore fronting the town.

2. Pagtiklos kita pagtanom hin bakhaw ha aton kahanangan.

Hira Ruben ha Norway ngan Lotlot ha America ngan Dongdong ha Saudi, maamot hin panubatuba ngan kinilaw. Katapos han aton Tiklos to clean our seashores and to reforest our kahanangan, then let us sing "Iroy nga Tuna", and dance the Curacha to the tune of Joseph Uy's makaruruyag nga kanta.

P.S.  Joseph Uy should be given an award as Outstanding Samar High School Alumnus.  Joseph, puede kon ako na la iton mafirma han imo award and other alumni of Samar High nga sangkay naton?

I'd like to commend Ray Gaspay for this site.  This message board is the best thing that ever happened to the Samarenos and the Leytenos. Kudos to Ray and may your tribe increase.  Keep up the good work and God bless you.

For a change, why not introduce the exchange of humor in the website to make it more lively. For example, after completing his serious message, the writer may contribute a joke or humorous story or anecdote.  The warays are known for their strong sense of humor, and this proposal might attract other kahimungto. I have no intention of turning this website into a fun center. As I said, he must complete first his serious message, after which he may end his message with .."and here's my joke:..."

Kindly inform the SAMAR NEWS that the Filipino Community of Arizona sent $11,537.00 through the PNRC the other day.

I know that the money which was sent through PNB Money Remittance Center is yet to be received by PNRC. I was told that it would take some couple of days before the donation could be received by PNRC.

Our specific instruction to the PNRC is simple: the money is for the victims of the Guinsaugon Landslide.

Can we send an information to the SAMAR NEWS?

Salamat.

Dear Pinoy heroes,

Peace! Peace! Peace!

FYI:

I
Rise in splendor,
Philippines my Philippines my native land!
Your light has come, the glory of the Lord shines upon you!

See, darkness covers the earth, and thick clouds cover the peoples.
But upon you the Lord shines, and over you appears His glory

The children of your oppressors shall come, bowing low before you;
All those who despised you shall fall prostrate at your feet.

No longer violence be heard of in your land or plunder and ruin within your boundaries.

"Your people shall all be just, they shall always posses the land.
They, the bud of my planting my handiwork to show my glory!"

I, the Lord, will shiftily accomplish these things when their time comes.

II
An idle mind is a terrible thing to waste. It is dangerous if used for self-glory.

But worse if used for evil-purposes. Use it for the glory of God!
Blessed be God ferever, blessed be His holy and glorious name!

III

Labot nga naabot na hin usa (1) ka oras o sumobra pa, an makuri nga biyahe dida hini nga malapok ngan higlarum nga kalsada, dako liwat an epekto hini ha ekonomiya han bungto. Kulang na an mga negosyante nga nasulod. Dugang ini nga pakuri han molopyo tungod han umento han mga papliton. An mga parag-motor (habal-habal) bangin liwat magpa-umento pa han ira pasahe. Hoy, mga driver(s), ayaw gad man kamo pagsingabot! Baya!

Damo an napaki-ana kon san-o daw la ini aayda nga "Fiesta Road"? (Fiesta Road kay nahinunumduman la ini pag-ayda kon hapit na it fiesta...damo it bisita kay may BH (bring home) pa... Hin-o ba it sadang mag-ayad hini? Kay nasering man la an hitaas nga opisyal han bungto nga diri ini ira trabaho kay Provincial Road man ini... Kon amo man kay ano nga diri man nagi-os an probinsya? (O bangin waray pa pormal ngan urgent nga request an mga gintu-inan ngadto han provincial government).

Ano man, karuyag ba sidngon nga pababay-an na la ba ini ngada hin kahimo nga "lunayan" hin kakarabwan ngan "kangga" nala an sasakyan han mga biyahedor.

Mayor, pwede ba pagmando kan engineer pagpahakot hini para mahitak-op hini nga lubak-lubak ngan malagay hin duro nga kalsada, tutal tikang man ini han mga kalsada han Villa. (Diri private property).

Mga Villahanon, ipadayon gad niyo an gintikangan nga Bayanihan Spirit (diri pirit). Mabuhay kamo ngatanan. Pero, ayaw gad man ubusa an 20% nga dev fund ngan 10% SK fund han mga barangay.
