I was surfing
the Internet and unsa man nang buanga nakita man nako ang website
Tanjay. Akong gui-basa ang inyong newsletter, ug, haskang
nako. Bisaya man gud ko,
dugay na diri, ug gui-hidlaw na ko sa mga
pasi-aw nga binisaya. Bilyako man
diay sab mong mga taga-Tanjay! Mao
sab na'y akong
ganahan! Ah, basta nahurot gud nako'g basa ang tanang issues nga
na-a sa Internet. Makahimo-ut gyud!
ko: ha-in man ning Tanjay? Di ba na-a man na sa Rizal province?
Pasaylo-a, apan pwerte gud nakong bogo-a sa
website is maintained by Iking Cariño. I will refer you to
na siya nimo sa imong problema sa
History kay engineer
man ni siya. (Unya kuan diay, Conchita, ' day, ug ni-a ra
magpuyo diri dapit sa California, mamyesta unya ta karong
Hulyo diri sa L.A. Tambong unya
kay moanhi ra
ba kono si Iking.)
Notes from back home
Brad, I just
read my first issue of the Ang Tanjayanon Newsletter (Issue #12) and I
was impressed beyond words. It makes one proud of the Tanjayanons
out there who as a group
unselfishly share their time and resources
to come up
with a very enlightening and entertaining newsletter.
Thru the Ang
Tanjayanon, I would like to greet our townsmen whom I have missed for
many years: my compadre Berto Tabaloc; Rufo Agir;
and Cresing Real, Polding Culi, Rufino Girasol,
Gaso, my cousins: Paulita and Eyen Salva; Temiong
and Ita Cusio, my former neighbors: the Manapols; the Señerises;
Cornelio, and many others.
you very much for the Ang Tanjayanon. Rest assured, Brad, that I
will keep this precious copy close to my heart.

An Open Letter To Tanjayanons
(Note: Edited for brevity)
it is said, are "uniquely funny", but that is not funny anymore!
Listen to this, Brad:
1. Several issues ago, Ms
Irene Kenneth (from
Plymouth, Australia) wrote to belittle Tanjay as a small town with
worthwhile to see, with dilapidated buildings, with people who go
in flip-flops and which stupidly celebrates Christmas the whole
Who came out to defend Tanjay? A Tanjayanon? No, sir.
Thanks to Mr. Harold Anderson (obviously an American) who
Tanjay and refuted Kenneth point by point. Where were the
genuine Tanjayanons who love Tanjay?
2. Everytime Mr (or is it Miss) Al
out with his /her usual stinking diatribe against Tanjay, who in
turn comes out to spend time to really defend Tanjay? A
No, Sir! It's usually non-Tanjayanons like lawyers Mars
Maxino and Danny Martinez who on separate occasions wrote
letters to rebut this great and mighty self-righteous Al Moranas.
Where were the so-called genuine Tanjayanons who love Tanjay?
3. In issue #12, Ms Doreen
of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals wrote to
against the horsefights in Tanjay calling it a "callous cruelty to
. . . which brings shame to the whole Philippine nation . . .and should
be outlawed in any humane, civilised society.." The
based in Hong Kong wants to abolish the horsefight in Tanjay. Has any
come out to take issue and defend this time-honored respected
for which Tanjay has been known for?
Tanjay is a
great town. The least one can do is to defend and maintain the
name and the beautiful traditions of this beloved
Let us have the other intelligent and gifted Tanjayanons come out and
with us their God-given talents. But where are they?

all concerned Tanjayanons thru the Officers of the Tanjay Association
The endorsement was officially shown with the SPCA letter on page 2 of

enough, no Tanjayanon has come up to defend this famous noble
