    Rotary Club of Tagbilaran, An Electrifying Man On His Roller-Coaster Orbit, November 26, 2014

    Rotary Club of Tagbilaran Editorial November 26, 2014 An Electrifying Man On His Roller-Coaster Orbit It was during the sensually tantalizing years of my teen-life (and further on until the thunder-and-lightning loss of my innocence) that my amorous world was scintillatingly titillated by the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, and Jayne Mansfield, and the realm I thrived on was a never-ending landscape oozing with breathless beauty, which I consider the best in my life. Today, when anybody breaths the […]

    Rotary Club of Tagbilaran, A Man for All Reasons, November 19, 2014

    Rotary Club of Tagbilaran Editorial November 19, 2014 A Man for All Reasons A glimpse of the history of the United Kingdom is not complete without knowing “A Man for All Seasons,” depicted in Robert Bolt’ play in 1954, about Sir Thomas More, a Chancellor of England in the 16 century, who refused to endorse King Henry VIII’s wish to divorce his wife Catherine of Aragon (who can’t bear him his son) so he could marry Anne Bolyne, a sister […]

    Rotary Club of Tagbilaran, At the End of the Rainbow, November 12, 2014

    Rotary Club of Tagbilaran, At the End of the Rainbow, November 12, 2014

    Rotary Club of Tagbilaran Editorial November 12, 2014 At the End of the Rainbow In Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice,” a love-struck pair (Lorenzo and Jessica) elopes, unmindful of the repercussions of their impulsive act. Stealing and running off with her father Shylock’s gold ducats, she intends to convert to her sweetheart’s religious affiliation, albeit the acidic contempt her family would spew unto her. Traversing with unladylike contortions through a miniscule of a window, she surreptitiously tells her handsome lover waiting […]

    Rotary Club of Tagbilaran, The Greatest Boholano?, November 5, 2014

    Rotary Club of Tagbilaran, The Greatest Boholano?, November 5, 2014

    Rotary Club of Tagbilaran Editorial November 5, 2014 The Greatest Boholano? November 4 is Garcia Day, a Holiday in the Province of Bohol, honoring Atty. Carlos Polestico Garcia of the Municipality of Talibon. Sporadically, I hear him being tagged as “The Greatest Boholano” (by some politicians, eager to impress with their stentorian oratory on stage) who ever lived. Whether there is truth to this assertion is relative – depending upon the perspective he is being viewed. That he was the […]

    Pakigbisog Aron Mabuhi

    Pakigbisog Aron Mabuhi

    Pulsong Bol-anon Ni Loy M. Palapos Nobyembre 24, 2013 Pakigbisog Aron Mabuhi Ang nabalitang mga krimen ug kalapasan sa tawhanong katungod nga mikuyanap sa naigo sa bagyong Yolanda, ilabi na sa Leyte, usa lang ka pagmatuod nga mogawas ang pagkabangis sa tawo aron lang siya mabuhi. Hinikalimtan ang mga lagda nga gihan-ay aron malinawon siyang manikaysikay uban sa iyang isigkaingon, molunang siya sa mga dautang lakang kon ang iyang kinabuhi na ang nakataya. Bisan ang iyang pagka-Kristohanon iyang isalikway aron […]

    Oro, Plata, Mata

    Pulsong Bol-anon Ni Loy M. Palapos Nobyembre 10, 2013 Oro, Plata, Mata Usa sa karaang tinuhoang pagano, nga bisan gisukwahi na sa mga kaparian sa daghang miaging mga katuigan, apan gisagop gihapon bisan sa mga Kristohanon hangtod karon, mao ang pag-agpas sa kabulahanan pinaagi sa ang-ang sa gihimo nga balay pinasibo sa tolo nagsunod-sunod nga pulong: oro (bulawan), plata (pilak), ug mata (kamatayon). Ang unang duha (oro ug plata) gituhoan nga magdala ug maayong swerte sa tagbalaly; ug ang ika-tolo […]

    Bunga sa Paningkamot o Badlis sa Palad?

    Bunga sa Paningkamot o Badlis sa Palad?

    Pulsong Bol-anon Ni Loy M. Palapos November 3, 2013 Bunga sa Paningkamot o Badlis sa Palad? “Sano, motuo ka ba sa badlis sa palad? Nga sa imong pagkahimugso nasulat na sa kabitoonan ang imong kaugmaon? Nga bisan unsa pa ang imong buhaton di na kini mausab? Sa laing bahin, nagtuo ka ba nga ang kaugmaon sa usa ka tawo anaa sa iyang kaugalingong mga kamot? Nga depende sa iyang pakigbisog ang mahitabo sa iyang kinabuhi? That being happy is a […]

    Everything is Fair in War and Politics

    PULSONG BOL-ANON Ni Loy M. Palapos Nobyembre 18, 2012 Everything is Fair in War and Politics The age-old dictum “Everything is fair in love and war,” is universally accepted. Just like in war, the lover can always use any means he can muster to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. In war, the combatants use any ploy to be the victor. How to outsmart the enemy is the main thing. To the victor belong the spoils, which […]
