The 2001 Tanjay USA Fiesta celebration
will be held at the new Tanjay Villa, this was announced by Ms Marlene
Zerna-Robertson, President of Tanjay Association, USA and head
of the Planning Committee. The Villa, located at Bradbury Estates,
is a sprawling 6-acre residential resort under development, complete with
a sparkling swimming pool, tennis court, picnic gardens, a pool house with
a state of the art kitchen, and a spacious hall that can, oh well, "entertain"
6 mahjong tables.
This 3-day affair of fun, nostalgia
and bonding, will start on Friday, July 20, 2001 and will end on Sunday,
the 22nd. The formal dinner and ball will be on Saturday the 21st
and will be held at the Pasadena Hilton.
"Tolo na pud diay ni ka adlaw'ng
bahug-bahug," commented Douglas Lopez, a member of the Board of
Directors of the Association.
"We are inviting all our friends
to join the Tanjayanons in this celebration," said Robertson. "We open
our hearts and our homes to all of you."
The main building of the Tanjay Villa
and other facilities have been specially reserved for the out-of- staters
who are expected to come. "All in all, we are ready to house about
fifteen families. Just tell us, and we'll be more than happy to accommodate
you," declared Marlene by way of inviting Tanjayanons from all over.
Out-of-town Tanjayanons and guests
are encouraged to stay at the Tanjay Villa instead of checking in at the
nearby hotels. For details, call Marlene at any of the following numbers:
(626) 945-6431, (310) 488-1363, (323) 224-2330.

as of the others - all in the typical Tanjayanon fun:the city of gentle
people, etc. What about Tanjay, back home, now that it is a city?
It used to be "Tanjay, lungsod sa
mga maanyag", as popularized by Andrews Calumpang in many of his
musical composition extolling the beauty and virtues of the Tanjayanon
woman. But as a city, what shall Tanjayanons call their hometown
a city of?
We sent emails to Tanjayanons in the
internet. We asked for suggestions in this intriguing matter.
Of course, it was not something official, it was all fun.. Well, we got
a good response, literally, from all over the world. It was taken
up as a fun thing, and everybody had a good time. Some of them submitting
as much as 5 proposed slogans for the new city. As expected some
suggestions were worth considering, apan kanang uban, ay sus, ay na lang
ko! (Daghan pa gyud diay'ng duhal-duhal sa cyberspace).
So hereunder are some selected
ones. We want to share with you the intelligence of some and the

There are still more than a dozen of

In the end, though, we
feel partial to the one that simply declared:
