The History Of Dalaguete Cebu


HOW DID the towns in the Philippines get their names?
Because the Spaniards are saying one thing and the natives another. The former could never get their nga's and ing's right, and many of the latter keep interchanging their e's and i's. Or local historians and story-tellers have run out of original ideas and are copying each other.

So, when a roving band of Spaniards, came upon a village at the mount of the Obong Spring and they saw a woman washing clothes in the flowing waters, they asked her what the name of the village was. Dalakit, the woman said, referring to the huge balete standing nearby. The tree is known in the locality as dalakit, or dakit. And this was how Dalaguete got its name.

Under the Spaniards, the natives built the baluartes or watchtowers at Obong that protected the town from the marauding Moros. Built in the late 1700s and early 1800s, there were three watchtowers referred to as Bantay Moros that formed part of a series of defensive fortifications erected by Fray Julian Bermejo, the Augustinian priest who was also called "Padre Kapitan". The baluartes were strategically placed along the southern flank of the island, from Carcar to the north Santander to the south.

One baluarte, rehabilitated in the 1970s and given a pavilion-like addition, is now a town landmark, referred to as the kiosko. Another landmark is Dakung Bato in Barangay Coro. This stone promontory served as the entrance to Dalaguete in the old days.

The town's beginnings started as an extension of the Carcar Parish in 1690. It became an independent parish in 1711, but it was not until 1802 that a more permanent building was started. Just like the church in Oslob, the church dedicated to San Guillermo de Aquitania is earthquake-baroque architecture characterize by flying buttresses on both side with a facade divided into three levels by cornice stone moldings. The pediment, adorned with finials, has a central niche and a small circular window that served as a lookout.

These days, visitors go to Dalaguete for 2 things, to bathe in the clear waters of Obong Spring, or to go up the highlands of Mantalongon, a barangay located a few hours drive away. Considered the vegetable basket of Cebu. Mantalongon's fairly cool climate is ideal for growing lettuce, tomatoes, cabbages, carrots as well as herbs and other nursery plants. Mantalongon is also a well-hidden secret as a favorite weekend destination for most city folks nowadays who find the lure of misty mornings and cold weather a refuge from the heat of the city.

Dalaguetnon Devotees Of San Guillermo De Aquitania In Metro Manila, Inc


A Brief HistoryBy: Dolores Bajarias-Bilar (+)Decades ago, several Dalaguetnons immigrated to manila in search of a better life and a bright future,bringing not only their belonging but also their love for the land of their birth and deep devotion to San Guillermo, the Patron Saint of Dalaguete,Cebu.Hard work and preseverance led to the realization of their cherished dreams of economic and educational endeavors.But their enjoyment of such prosperity did not last long enough because of the entanglement of the Philippines in World War II.On December 10, 1941 ,Japan invaded the Philippines.On January 29, 1942,the invaders entered Manila.The people ran away.Many evacuated to the provinces.Some went home to their places of origin.The rest decided to stay regardless of consequences.From 1942 to 1945, the Filipinos suffered from the oppressive acts and atrocious abuses.The worst, however, happened in Manila, during the first three weeks of February 1945, when the city was liberated. The Dalaguetnon and foreigners suffered from sickness, hunger, thirst, loneliness and uncertainty of their future.At the height of their crisis they pleaded to the Almighty for His mercy and to San Guillermo for intercession. Their prayers were heard.Sometime in August 1945, when they learned that the war finally over,they met, formed the KAPUNUNGANG DALAGUETNON, elected the late Candido Alvarado president or pangulo and planned to hold a fiesta in order to thank God and San Guillermo for their survival.One day in February 1946, the first fiesta after World War II was celebrated in Pinaglabanan, San Juan, Rizal. This became a tradition. Since then, the truly devoted Dalaguetnons have never failed to honor San Guillermo in a special way, All the fiestas from 1946 up to fiesta on February 26, 1989 were sponsored by the KAPUNUNGANG DALAGUETNON.During the 1989 fiesta sponsored by the Ambrad clan, an election was held for 1990 president/hermano. it was the birth of San Guillermo DE DALAGUETE, CEBU ASSOCIATION, INC which was organized and registered in November 7, 1989. The first fiesta under it was held on February 25, 1990.It continued to sponsor Fiestas, in spite of the existence of another group devoted to San Guillermo.The majority wanted to provide the image with a chapel, as an appropriate abode. Fund raising activities were conducted during fiestas to accumulate funds for the purpose.Just before the 2006 fiesta an alleged chairman of the Board of SAGUIDACEA told her friend , also a member, that she would "lie low, stay frozen," meaning that she would not participate in the annual celebration, so the fiesta was held on February 26, 2006 according to schedule even without her and three others, The affair was well attended, very lively. The Caritan Clan served plenty of food. We did not expect trouble.A few months after the fiesta, a meeting was called, an election was conducted replacing those who were elected on March 7, 2004, due to their failure to elect a new set of officers on the General Assembly, day of the fiesta. The affected and the members did not complain. They just kept quiet.I the remembered what the late Placido B. Bilar, a survivor who had participated in celebration of the first fiesta after the war, and one of the founders of SAGUIDACEA. He said, " My religiosity and deep devotion to San Guillermo is my legacy to my family. I want them to keep this legacy sacred. I kept these words ringing in my ears.When I smelled an odor of break up I recalled my promise I had made on July 09, 2006, that beginning 2007. I would offer a Eucharistic Celebration every fourth Sunday of every year at the gymnasium of the Department of Agrarian Reform If available , but if not, then in any Catholic Church, But no food. I promised to fulfill such promise even if only my family and I would attend.Then a very good opportunity came on January 14,2007 when sex individuals expressed their full support to me. We agreed at once to hold a fiesta on February 25, 2007. More than 600 attended the affair as reflected in the registry book[...]

Dalaguete with San Guillermo


The antiquity of Dalaguete can be gleaned from its parish church. Built in 1771, the year (the year the town and parish were founded), it was a masterpiece of Fr. Juan Chacel. J.T. Newman describes the church:

(image) Dalaguete with San Guillermo as its patron is pseudo-baroque. The altar is shaped like a shell and it is one church with false galleries constructed at the upper sites of the altar. It is said that there used to be a small statue of San Guillermo with diamonds for eyes. But this has been stolen or lost
The town of Dalaguete used to be only a barrio of Carcar. But it progressed rapidly. As a 16th century town, it had a large wharf and the strongest fort outside of Manila. There were bastions of stones protecting it. It had good roads that facilitated communications and the town already had possessed a telegraph system.

Something To Take Time Think About


If you think Beaten,You are; If you think you dare not, you don't if you think you'd like to win but can't It's almost a 'cinch' you won't; If you think you'll lose, you've lost. For out in the world you'll find Sucess begins with a fallows will. It's all in the state of wind.



There's something you may give friend and stranger,too;
It seems that when you give i
t,its given back to you.
The gift is worth a million,but doens't cost a dime;
It's lasting in effect,but doesn't take much time.
The simple little gesture can make a day worth while;
It's just as good as Sunshine; Its what we call a smile

Happy New Year




Moviefone's Best Movies of 2008


10. Tropic ThunderThis hilarious comedy will go down in history as the movie that made people forget Tom Cruise's couch-jumping antics. Well, at least momentarily. With a string of flawless Hollywood cameos and A-list stars like Robert Downey Jr. and Jack Black (not to mention triple threat Ben Stiller who co-wrote, directed and starred), it pulled in more than $187 million worldwide and could land Downey Jr. a rare Oscar nomination for a comedic performance.9. MilkWhat was already an affecting story -- that of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man to be elected to U.S. public office, who was shot to death by a fellow supervisor -- takes on greater power, and near-heartbreaking poignancy, in the face of recent political initiatives against gay marriage. But what ultimately carries the movie is Milk himself, whose outsized charisma and passion get their due in Sean Penn's fiery, feisty performance.8. Man on WireThe best-reviewed film of all time, according to RottenTomatoes, James Marsh's documentary replays the amazing story of Frenchman Philippe Petit, who made it his life's mission to tightrope walk between World Trade Center towers, and succeeded in 1974. Without a mention of 9/11, this breathtaking account is an affirmation of both the remarkable splendor of the WTC and the power of human determination.7. Wall-EThe gorgeous, wordless first half has the comic grandeur of a Chaplin film; the second half is a biting satire of commercialism that's far more effective than Michael Moore ever was. And yet at its root this is simply a romance, achingly tender and true, about a lonely little robot and his search for love. Breathtaking in its beauty, scope, intelligence and charm, 'WALL-E' isn't just a Pixar masterpiece -- it's a masterpiece, period.6. Frost/NixonA Hollywood rendering of British journalist David Frost's (Michael Sheen) breakthrough interviews with impeached prez Richard Nixon (Frank Langella) has no right being so entertaining. But director Ron Howard knows how to work his wand, employing genre conventions (Frost gets his crack team) without actually getting too conventional, and stages the one-on-one showdowns like an intense 12-round boxing match. It helps, too, that Langella is brilliant.5. The Curious Case of Benjamin ButtonThe award-winning streak has already begun for 'Benjamin Button,' but it's not due to the high wattage of star power alone. This sweeping epic follows a life lived with love, romance, dying and death. But yes, we can't deny it: from the small bespectacled octogenarian and the graying adult, to the sexy James Dean-esque 20-something, Brad Pitt is extremely watchable -- no matter which way he ages.4. The WrestlerMickey Rourke, award nominee (and those awards aren't Razzies)? Call it the year of the comeback. There's not a single misstep in Darren Aronofsky's drama about an over-the-hill pro wrestler who just can't get it right. Randy "the Ram" Robinson shows flashes of warmth and empathy, but then just as quickly sabotages his own efforts to turn things around. Marisa Tomei, as a stripper and his sort-of girlfriend, and Evan Rachel Wood as the daughter who's been burned one too many times, round out the incredible performances.3. The Dark KnightGood and evil, peace and chaos, Batman and the Joker are two sides of the same coin -- with their fates just a wrist-flick away -- in director Christopher Nolan's grim, glorious sequel to 'Batman Begins.' While the action comes fast and plentifully, it's Christian Bale's tortured turn as the demon-knight and Heath Ledger's unsettling, unforgettable performance as his clown-faced nemesis that will haunt you long after the credits roll. This is the 'Godfather 2' of superhero flicks -- no joke. 2. Slumdog MillionareOn paper it sounds gimmicky. A poor and uneducated Mumbai teen accused of cheating on 'Who Wants[...]

Top 20 Saddest Songs of All-time by Yahoo Music


The Top 20 Saddest Songs of All-timeby: Yahoo Music20 The Everly Brothers: "So Sad (To Watch Good Love Go Bad)," from It's Everly Time (Warner Brothers, 1960) A descending scale begins a classic of sad restraint: "We used to have good times together but now I feel them slip away/It makes me cry to see love die: so sad to watch good love go bad..." Sparse backing and note-perfect harmony compliment one of Don’s greatest lyrics. The inspiration for many a tender hearted ne’r-do-well, from John Lennon to Brian Wilson and beyond.19 The Band: "It Makes No Difference," from Northern Lights - Southern Cross (Capitol, 1975) The most artless--and most piningly desolate--love song Robbie Robertson ever wrote, sung with hopeless tenderness by Rick Danko, The Band's most artless singer. "I love you so much, and it's all I can do/Just to keep myself from telling you/That I never felt so alone before..."18 Randy Crawford: "One Day I'll Fly Away," single (Warner Brothers, 1980) "When will love be through with me?" MOR slush to some ears, this Crusaders/Will Jennings-constructe d jazz-funk-lite ballad remains irresistibly sad to many others--especially when Crawford trails off on "away" and the swelling chord drops down beneath her. Tremulous and dreamily lovely.17 Soft Cell: "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye," single (Some Bizzare, 1982) The genius of this synthpop classic is the way it starts out as a bitchfest--Marc Almond coming on like Dusty Springfield' s petulant little sister--and then suddenly flips into a deep, engulfing sadness. Even as Almond demands that his lover take her hands off him and claims that "You never knew me/I never knew you", Dave Ball's oceanic keyboard chords say the opposite--that Marc is all tetchy bravado and that this parting is bursting his heart.16 Billie Holiday : "Don't Worry 'Bout Me," from Lady In Autumn (Verve, 1959) Billie is being so damn reasonable: "Why not call it a day the sensible way, and still be friends," she sings. And do we believe her? We do not. Her apparent acceptance that "our little show is over" cuts no ice when delivered with such cracked desperation. Truly heart-rending late Lady Day.15 Love: "Alone Again Or," from Forever Changes (Elektra, 1967) Love’s most famous recording: written, ironically, not by leader Arthur Lee but by po' little rich boy Bryan Maclean. "I heard a funny thing, somebody said to me/‘You know that I could be in love with almost everyone/I think people are the greatest fun’. And I will be alone again tonight, my dear..." The bastard son of the Byrds meets Ennio Morricone--all West Coast harmonies, 12-string guitars and Tijuana brass--this ode to loneliness seemed to come out of nowhere in late ‘67.14 The Pretenders: "I Go To Sleep," from Pretenders II (WEA, 1981) What a concept: a song about missing an ex-partner sung by your future ex-partner. Written by Ray Davies and sung by Chrissie Hynde, this gives a peek into the--one assumes--charred lansdscape of the Davies/Hynde relationship. A perfect marriage of arrangement (including a beautiful French horn riff), lovelorn vocals and passionate lyrics: "I was wrong, I will cry, I will love you ‘til the day I die/You alone, you alone and no-one else/You were meant for me..."13 Dusty Springfield : "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself," single (Phonogram, 1964) Springfield here performs a rare feat: outperforming Dionne Warwick's own version of a Bacharach and David classic. Moving from forlorn whimper to gutsy roar, she lives the song to the full. "Going to the movies only makes me sad; parties make me feel as bad/When I'm not with you, I just don't know what to do." Decimating.12 Little Feat: "Long Distance Love," from The Last Record Album (Warner Brothers, 1975) "Does she know [...]

Dance With My Father: By Luther Vandross


Back when I was a child
Before Life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And dance with my mother and me and then

Spin me around till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure
I was loved

If I could get another chance
Another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
How I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again

Ooh, ooh

When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me, yeah, yeah
Then finally make me do just what my mama said

Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he
Would be gone from me

If I could steal one final glance
One final step, one final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
'Cause I'd love, love, love to dance with my father

Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how momma would cry for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me

I know I'm prayin' for much too much
But could You send back the only man she loved
I know You don't do it usually
But dear Lord, she's dyin' to dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep
And this is all I ever dream

Most Inspirational Movies of All Time


The 25 Most Inspirational Movies of All Time by Moviefone#25 Forest GumpTom Hanks won his second Oscar for this affecting portrayal of an unassuming man with a low IQ who wins a Congressional Medal of Honor for heroism in Vietnam , becomes a multimillionaire, meets presidents and rock stars, and unwittingly influences popular culture. 'Gump,' at its core, is a fable that posits life as a wondrous gift, precious and brimming with hidden value.#24 Stand and Deliver (1988)An East L.A. math teacher, Jaime Escalante (Edward James Olmos), battles to instill an appreciation of learning and academic excellence in inner city students who view high school as little more than a daily six-hour holding pen. Against all odds, Escalante succeeds in transforming his kids into calculus whizzes who ace their senior year exams. Think 'Rocky' for the pocket protector crowd.#23 In The Heat of the Night (1967)An East L.A. math teacher, Jaime Escalante (Edward James Olmos), battles to instill an appreciation of learning and academic excellence in inner city students who view high school as little more than a daily six-hour holding pen. Against all odds, Escalante succeeds in transforming his kids into calculus whizzes who ace their senior year exams. Think 'Rocky' for the pocket protector crowd.#22 Rudy (1993)Sean Astin (years before he hit the big time as a hobbit) is the titular football tackling dummy who gains entrance to the college of his dreams, Notre Dame, in this true story that'll have you rootin' and weepin' at the finale. A doughy Jon Favreau (years before he became Vince Vaughn's tackling dummy) plays Rudy's buddy who helps him ace the entrance boards that finally get him into school. The movie thrillingly underscores the old saw "Winners never quit, and quitters never win."Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)In an era of flip-flopping politicians who seem to act for political expediency, it's only in the annals of history (and movies) that we find leadership that really measures up. And no one's done it better on the big screen than Jimmy Stewart as junior Senator Jefferson Smith; a trusting soul who travels to D.C. only to see his idealistic hopes crushed by the graft of special interest money men. Smith's one-man filibuster ranks among director Frank Capra's greatest movie moments.Chariots of Fire (1981)This true story of two British track stars, a determined Jew (Ben Cross) and a devout Christian (Ian Charleson), who compete for king and country in the 1924 Olympics won the 1982 Best Picture and Best Screenplay Oscars (against a field that included 'On Golden Pond'). Naysayers believe the flick -- and Vangelis' dulling score -- belongs in the "What Were We Thinking?" category populated by Academy duds like 'Gandhi' and 'The English Patient.' But for fans, 'Chariots' is a film with, well, legs.Diary of Anne Frank (1959)The diary that teenager Anne Frank kept while hiding with her family and other Jews in a secret room in Amsterdam during WWII, chronicling Anne's hopes, dreams and budding sexuality, made a powerful transition to the screen in 1959. 'Diary' underscores the implacable optimism of the human spirit best embodied in the voiceover we hear as the secret annex is discovered by the Gestapo. "I still believe, in spite of everything, that all people are basically good at heart," Anne says.The Shawshank Redemption (1994)In 1947, after taking the fall for two murders he didn't commit, Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is sent for life to Shawshank State Prison. What follows is nearly two decades of life lessons that speak to how a decent man cannot only endure unjust conviction, but really matter in others' lives. Although the f[...]

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.
You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

Happy Together


I remember that romantic day,
down the aisle you bo
th were walking,
you've been together so long now
I'm surprised that you're still talking!

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008)


Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is the 2008 sequel to the 2005 film, Madagascar. It was produced by DreamWorks Animation and was released last November 7, 2008. The film was distributed by Paramount Pictures.The movie starts in the past as Zuba (the alpha Lion of the Africa wildlife reserve), teaching his son Alakay (Alex) to fight. Then Makunga (the other Lion that is trying to snatch the title of Zuba) came and chanllenges Zuba. As the two Lions fight Alex was drawn out of the fence of the reserve and was catched by the Hunters. Zuba found out and tried to rescue Alex. But unfortunately, the crate where Alex was trapped fall on the cliff into a river which carries it to the sea. His crate eventually drifts to New York City where he is put on display in the Central Park Zoo. The movie cuts to the present, picking up where Madagascar left off. Alex, (lLiom) Marty,(Zebra) Melman (Giraff), and Gloria (Hipo) are boarding an airplane that will be catapulted with a gigantic slingshot. King Julian and Maurice go with them. Midway through the trip, the penguins discover they are out of fuel, but manage a gentle crash landing in an African wildlife reserve. They all meet their species, while the penguins stay at the crash site and repair the plane....Alex reunites with his dad Zuba, and mom Florrie. Zuba's rival Makunga questions Alex and told that Alex should passed the right-of-passage trial for a for membership in the pride. But Makungas intention is to use Alex so he can steal the throne for himself. Makunga tricked Alex into choosing an exceedingly large and muscular lion as an opponent and he mistakenly thought that the test is a dance-off and was easily been defeated. Zuba, despite his disappointment, refuses to banish Alex from the pride and throw the throne. Makunga assumes the throne and ihimself banished Zuba and Alex along with Florrie. While Marty joins a herd of zebras, and discovers that each of the zebras is exactly like him, which makes him question how unique he is. Gloria meets Moto Moto as a potential mate. Melman becomes the giraffe herd's new witch doctor and helps animals with diseases and wounds. His new friends convince him he has "Witch Doctor's Disease" and has only two more days to live. As Alex and Melman talk over their problems with a zebra they think is Marty. Marty arrives and was offended to Alex that he cannot tell him from one of his "clones". Melman, was so sad and he burried himselp in hole with his head only on the top. He meets Julian and talk him that he should make the best of his last hours by facing and telling Gloria what he feels since he has nothing to loose. Melman found Gloria and Moto Moto on a secluded pool as Gloria tries to warm up to Moto Moto, facing Moto Moto and telling him to take care of Gloria for all the great qualities he himself sees in her, which moves Gloria.As another conflicts arrives as the water waterhole dries up, all the animals panic. The animals asking Makunga what to do since he is now the King, and he replies that this should be settle in a fight. The other animals refuses since others are small and dont stand a chance versus the Lions. Alex came and volunteered to fix things up. As Alex and Marty trails the river, they found out that the New York vacationers build a Dam to support themselves off the reserve after getting lost in the jungle, led by Nana the Old Lady. Alex was caught by the humans, but Zuba rushes in in the nick of time. Alex intimidates the humans by performing as he had done in the zoo, and the human[...]

Tinker Bell (2008) Snapshots



Tinker Bell (2008)


(image) Tinker Bell (2008) is a computer animated film based on the Disney Fairies franchise being produced by DisneyToon Studios. It revolves around Tinker Bell, a fairy character in Peter Pan. But this time the story is about Tinker Bell alone. I think it was released in the US on the last week of October and I don't know if it will be released here in the Philippines. However I can assure you this is one animated movie to watch.

The movie starts when Tinker Bell was born, selected her natural talent as a Thinker. A thinker is one of the group of fairies that creates and fix things. Unlike other fairies a thinker fairy does not have the ability to manipulate nature but they have a high level of way of thinking and creativity. She was born at a time when all fairies prepare for the end of winter and the coming of spring. Since Tinker Bell was a newly born fairy she is not aware that thinker fairies do not go to the main land. This is when the conflict starts as Tinker Bell becomes so curios of the main land as the other fairies are talking about it. She starts to think ask here other fairy friends to teach there abilities to her but instead of learning them she had caused a disaster and all the preparation for spring was lost. But as Tinker Bell accepts his true potential she think of ways on how to make months of preparation and hard work can be done in a short period of time. By using this thinking ability she had come with plan and created tools on how to make it easier and faster. And finally Tinker Bell Saved the day.


Lesson Learned:
The main lesson I have learned from this movie is simple, we should not underestimate ourselves and we should accept what we are capable of and that every each one of us has its own special ability and each one of us is created special. By accepting it and enhance our potential, with the help of others that surrounds us specially our friends and family we can do better things.
