     Thanks for this wonderful website. I am so happy to see this website. The familiar pictures of the town and capitol made me homesick. Although, Texas has been my home, Catbalogan, inspite of the dirty streets(some) and poverty, will always be dear to my heart.
     I hope for the continued success of this website and thank you again for creating I enjoyed the news and all.

Hello again,
        Hey Joel Isanan, your name sounds very familiar. Back in the early nineties, I was just a kid. My father never failed to send me to Gandara for the youth camp. I had a blast every time, and all year long I would look forward to that camp. I don't know if you are the same Joel, but if you are related to Josephine Ramos, you could very well be. Oh! well, I like your passion for the Waray-Waray as a community. Calbayog is my home city, and I have heard great things going in there! There are three hospitals that I heard of, there is the provincial hospital, The Sanitarium hospital and the new one right where the airport area. I am surprise that all these years nothing much has changed in Catbalogan and Gandara. I haven't been home for 5 years so I rely on the net, and my family to keep me posted. What's keeping the investors to establish businesses in Samar? Anybody has an answer? Happy resurrection to every-one!!!! Hello papa Ordie, mama Annie & to all my sisters!!! Keep loving Jesus, He is awesome!!!!

        Hi everyone, I invite you all to the "Join the Discussion Forum" in this website.  You will be able to air what you feel and know about what's going on in Samar, why is Samar, in Catbalogan particulary as the capital town, not showing progress, why the streets are dirty and so fort and so on...Are there really graft and corruption happening there? ....who are responsible?  These questions are mind-boggling.  By giving your views or personal opinions, we can at least "awaken" the "sleep pretenders" and the culprits to be cautious of whatever, God knows what, they are doing to SAMAR.

        Reflections of Samar
        I am almost  twenty years old but I traveled to the Philippines for the first time last  December. With my parents working full-time and my older brother, Mark, and my younger sister, Rachel, and I in school for most of the year, no time seemed like the right time. Until December of 2003, that is. We survived the sixteen hour plane ride and attended my dadís UP Medical Schoolís Class Silver Jubilee Celebration in Manila. I cannot adequately describe the gamut of thoughts, ideas and emotions that ran through my body upon seeing my familyís country for the first time.
        My time spent in the Philippines was a complete eye-opening experience, especially once we ventured into the provinces. While Manila at least resembles our large cities in the States, I had seen nothing like the provinces. I have always desired to see my parentsí birthplaces and how they spent their childhoods - the guava tree my mom climbed in her youth and the blue-green ocean where my dad first learned to swim. My wishes became a reality when we traveled to Nueva Vizcaya and later Catbalogan, Samar during our two and half week jaunt.
        The drive to Catbalogan from the airport was a journey in itself. I stared out of the window in awe as I witnessed the quaint villages and verdant countryside pass. Always smiling, people looked happy despite the seeming poverty. While in Catbalogan, I met relatives I only knew from the vivid stories my dad told us. I played games with my younger cousins, Arkie, Arel and little Paw-Paw and enjoyed native delicacies in the home of Samarís Vice Governor, Mano Erning. I rode a tricycle (for the first time!) with my dad and sister to the bakeshop where we ordered delicious Filipino desserts, like hopia de pili and mazapan. As we walked back to the Maqueda Bay Hotel, we paid our respects to Our Lady of Ubanon Church.
        With the rest of my family, we drove through the streets of Catbalogan. Acting as our tour guide, my dad excitedly pointed some of the sites significant to his youth: St. Bartolomew Church where he served as an altar boy, St. Maryís College of Catbalogan (formerly Sacred Heart College) where he attended grammar school, Samar Capitol Building and its Obelisk, Samar Provincial Hospital, where he briefly worked prior to coming to the States, Samar High School where he was a member of the Class of 1969, and the pier he and his childhood friends used as a jump-off to swim on Sunday afternoons much to the chagrin of my lola.
        We saw the historic sites and buildings in Samar and Leyte, but the most rewarding part of our excursion to Samar was the excitement written across my dadís face. I can only imagine what he was thinking as he made his long way down memory lane. He literally glowed from the second he hugged his younger brother at the airport in Tacloban to the high school friends he met up with after not seeing them after twenty-four years. Upon seeing my father, his high school classmate Charry proceeded to jump up and down with a childish glee. When he and his childhood friend Alice met up, neither could keep themselves from laughing and reminiscing of the good olí days of their youth. Despite her familyís busy schedule, they spent an entire day with us at Buri Beach where we swam after eating the most scrumptious crabs, shrimp and sinugba.
        All of the people - relatives and old and new friends -  that I met with my family extended such a gracious hand of hospitality towards us, and for that I wish to deeply thank them for continually including my family in their plans. On behalf of the Hong family, I wish to express my deepest  gratitude. I loved my time there and learned so much, that Iím already planning a trip back . . .soon!

        Hello to one and all and a big hello to the folks in Samar Catbalogan.
        I am an Australian man married to my Filipina wife of 23 years {from Luzon}. I came across this site a couple of weeks ago from a {link of a local business in Catbalogan} and find it very interesting. A big thank you to Ray Gaspay for opening up to the world wide web, SAMAR.
        My wife and i would love to visit Samar and the attractions it has to offer whilst on vacation in the Philippines. Samar news has done a good job in presentation of Samar through its web site.
        What we would like to find out more about is accommodation in Catbalogan and any car hire companies and or tours to the various places of interest for tourist? Do you have any interesting dive sites or coral reefs to visit?
        Thanking you Garth!

        Based on the e-mails I read and from this website (thanks to Mr.Ray Gaspay!), it seems to me that there are a lot of waray-warays who are residing in different places around the globe, who have different outstanding educational background, excellent achievements, and admirable jobs in a lot of fields.  That clearly shows we are not really that "waray upay" trademark as labeled by some.  I am re-assured that being a waray is something that I can be proud of. I am more proud because of these people.  However, it is interesting to note that we now see from the outside world what is in the inside of Samar.  Our question lies in this:  How far has Samar gone, in terms of growth and development, through all these years?  Compared to other neighboring provinces, not to mention Leyte, we are not as developed in many aspects, like health services (as mentioned by Johnny Calinao), agriculture, economics, infrastructures (see how our roads are from Leyte to Samar!)and etc.  Leyte residents are proud to "sell" the province because there's a lot of things to offer in that part of our region. 
     I am therefore encouraging the waray-warays around the globe to come together and become a voice to effect changes in our beloved province of Samar.  I admit we are not legislators, chief executives or anybody in that nature, but my belief convicts me that we can do something to "stir the glass" so that we can influence the powers-that-be who have been chosen as "drivers", in a political sense, to steer the wheel in the right direction.  Our achievements in different fields will have a great impact on our province if we can work together to impart something we know to help better the lives of our fellow Samarnons.  In a politician's "If not now...when, if not us...whoelse.." dogma, reflects one's commitment to put our knowledge and vision, based on our achievements in life, into action, because no matter how we have achieved to manage our personal lives and become somebody in a certain field, things become futile if we will not share it for the betterment of the lives of our fellow Waraynons.  How?  this question now lies on us how we do it.  Remember, as Waraynons, we each have the obligation to look after Samar, now that we have the capability to do it, by sharing something what we know.  Frankly, I don't know how exactly we have to do it, but I'm sure most of you folks who have great achievements, can share great ideas how it should be done!

These two Samarnons are very unique and fine individuals. Each one of them has a very unique and unmatched talent & intelligence that I only hope each and everyone Samarnon be inspired of and follow their footsteps. I don't know much about these two great Samarnons before not until I started surfing the internet thru this great Website of Mr. Ray Gaspay. My family and I are looking forward to visit Catbalogan by next year's summer break. Mr. Ray Gaspay, once again damo nala nga salamat. See you next year.

        My brother, Johnny, raised an issue that need vigilant attention from our fellow Samarnons who still have respect to life. We cannot deny the fact that the gov't has appropriated the needed funds to keep the GANDARA HOSPITAL running the way it should run. Given the fact that the funds may not be sufficient, it is made worse by MISAPPROPRIATION. The SELFISHNESS of the powerful FEW had adversely affected the lives of MANY powerless poor. Where in the world can you find a hospital that is shared by 4 municipalities? Wake up fellow Samarnons.

       Is there a way that our concerns and questions will be addressed by the authorities involved in Samar. Ray, I will be very glad if an answer to my questions will be addressed by any person whom the question directly concerns. I am a native of Gandara, Samar and when I went home couples of years ago, I noticed that Gandara Emergency Hospital is being shared by 4 municipalities. San Jorge, Matuguinao, Pagsanjan and Gandara. I also noticed that the building is deteriorating, lack of equipments, medication prices are very expensive and there is no system or protocol in case of emergency, no blood bank whatsoever. I strongly believe that through your website the healthcare system in Samar will be reformed. Based on my survey, the following questions arises;
        1. How many hospitals are there in Samar?
        2. How much budget do these hospitals get in every year?
       3. Is it true that budget are not released unless certain percentage of money are taken as padalunot to the disbursing Officer? Please investigate.
        4. How will you reform the entire healthcare system in Samar?
        5. Who is the person in charge to answer my questions?
        I will be very glad if someone from the Governor's office come out and address my questions. Let's make our hospitals a facility for everybody not just for the underprivileged. To the public officials in Samar, It's gonna come back to you if no effort will be taken immediately. Time is running out, what if somebody had a heart attack? ABER.

        To every-one who have heard of the name Jesus Christ,( that probably includes every-one) go see Mel Gibson's movie "THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST". It is a must see movie especially before the presidential election. We need to start voting with conviction, not just a popular name. A popular name is good if there is a personal integrity attached to it. Please  vote wisely!
