OK, i know i was so bad for making you wait for over a year before this post. God, i was such a monster! How could i neglect my readers? Anyways, your long wait is officially over. Here I am now - 'major major back' - to give you exciting updates about our favorite 'bacacay'.
We just had our fiesta celebration (Aug. 29 - 30) and believe me - it was as fabulous as the previous fiestas i could remember. The fiesta was made even colorful by the nightly festive events that gave bacacayanos fun-filled entertainment.Competitors in Bacacay's version of Pilipinas Got Talent and Show Time made the viewers at the global gym laugh and shout as reactions to the performance they saw on the stage. I was also lucky to have not missed 'bayle bacacay, a ballroom competition.
Although a paid show, the first ever Karagumoy hunk and babe, a bikini open contest, was well-patronized by our local inhabitants and visitors from nearby municipalities even Legazpi City. Well, who wouldn't want to see sexy and sizzling hot bodies, anyways? Honest, among the shows, this one's my favorite. :D
Remaining the most anticipated fiesta event was the annual parade that took place along the streets of poblacion the day before the fiesta. Despite the sun's sweltering heat, students and teachers from elementary and secondary Bacacay public schools and Zamora Memorial College and the local officials joined the long parade with smiles of excitement and joy. The eye-catching and energetic drum corps from each school exhibited their best choreography as they hit the street and finally competed at the town plaza, the parade's terminal spot.
Oppss... I know you want to see the pictures. I know, right? Sad news is I wasn't able to take pictures of these events except during the street presentation held Friday, Aug 28. So, don't you frown. I'll post them hopefully after this entry.
That would be enough for now guys... Got a lot of work to do... : D

Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home
May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know
And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that
Another sunny place
I’m lucky, I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, I’ve got to go home
Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home
And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
'Cause this was not your dream
But you always believed in me
Another winter day has come
And gone away
In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

an aldaw kinaun nin dampog, madiklom ang kalangitan
boses nin higante dagit sa kapalibutan
dalugdog ang apod, kinakatakutan
ta ika pusu-anun, nagluwas nin harong
hinuba an kalson, maugmang nag dalagan
sa tahaw nin tinampo ika nagkurahaw
nag apod nin uran, suminayaw
dai nag haloy, simong hagad inonra
luha nin langit tuminagdo, ruminuso
isug nin kikilat, dai tig mangno
sa labing kaugmahan, ika napa lukso
ako nainggit nin gayo, ika inibahan
gisi an kalson, sa uran inabot nin udto
ta ako nakabuhi daug pa ang priso
sa may biriran nadasmag, aray sawod ko
uyan na si amang aldaw, pauli na ako
maski rungas an tuhod, sa dalan ulok
uran nin enero, hahanap hanapon ko

Dai ko ngani gusto an ideya na tig tawan ako ki helang samantalang kursonada daa palan ako. Kaginhawahan kaya an sakong tigtau sa tawong kursonada ko. Baliktad man palan mag isip an mga tawong lipod. Gari gubot an hutok.
Tabi man, ako mapaaram na!

Naging uso man kaito so paputok, sumpit, tagpanaw buda trumpo. Rumdom ko pa so gira kan libod buda tubog sa paputok.Sabihon ta nang toy gun ini kan kasaradayan ngonian. Ang pagkakaiba lng kan duwa - ang bala kan toy gun plastik na bulitas, ang paputok papel na dumog. Pero kun kulog ang pag hururunan, mas ma-aray ka sa paputok. Asi probare.

It’s funny how Bacacayanos address their fellows by their bansag. A mother asking her son to buy 'asin' (salt) for example would say, “Nonoy, bakal daw ki asin duman ka Mantika. Mantika (cooking oil) is the common bansag for Bellen clan. Also, a father asking his son to barrow their neighbor’s 'asadol' (hoe) would say, “Nonoy, sublia daw muna ka odo so asadol. Odo (stool) is another Bacacaynon bansag, although i dont exactly know from which clan it actually originated. Other famous bansag(s) in Bacacay include pusiw (a bird), aswang (monster), kuyog, lapit (penis), biriran (star fruit), bagol (coconut shell), tarok (farm), kobra (snake), ubod and a lot more.
Today, Bacacayanos have however come to realize that such aliases are embarrassing and even offensive. I remember my cousin, who belongs to lago clan complainingly asked “nata man daw panu ta nagtugot so mga ninuno tang bansagan ki lago!!!” (why did our ancestors let others call them lago) True, he really felt humiliated being called 'lago'.
How about you? What is your bansag?
