Tagna-Tagna 2013

Courtesy: Facebook
According to Chinese astrologers, the year of the Water Snake 2013 (which will start on Feb. 10) is fairly exciting, promising and smooth. The cosmic element of the year is water which is characterized with mobility, dynamism and changeability. The year of the Snake will correspond to such colors as black, blue (light-blue), and green. So, on the first day of the year, I wore blue with shades of black in order to charm the snake.
But as tradition dictates, Bared is dishing out its predictions for 2013. As a reminder (I may sound a broken record), tagna-tagna ra ni He! He! He!

Again, I must take a bow, ehem, because last year’s Tagna-Tagna was 95% true! Believe it or not but through the years, Bared has had a better batting average (read: more credible) than any or all of the mananagna who're using mutya (crystal ball) or cards to predict the future He! He! He!  How I did it? Radio (radio de baktas included), newspapers and the social media (Facebook!) can help you predict what’s in store for our favorite who’s who in Bohol in the next 12 months.

Ready? Drum roll…please.

• Sorry, but no wedding bells for:  Anna Maris Igpit and Glenn Soco (the latter will become busy for the election in Cebu), Bien Unido Mayor Rey NiƱo Boniel and his sexy girlfriend (or church wedding?), Dominic “Dobap” Aparicio (what for?) and his girlfriend (is there any?) nor Atty. Brian Gaviola and his girlfriend (if she can pick one) will plan to settle down this year. But Doc Renz Acedo and his wifey are seriously planning to march down the aisle and Eden Descallar of Globe Telecom and her beau will (finally!) walk the aisle this year!  We can’t wait for another year.

• The Alfeo Jabinez -Amy Fiel Booc romance will even grow stronger. But marriage is farthest from their minds.

• The "war" between Mayor Dan Neri Lim and Gov. Edgar Chatto will continue to “sour” into highest level during election time. The feuds will continue as politicians will have mudslinging and character assassination.

• More controversies will rock this year’s Miss Tagbilaran and Miss Bohol Sandugo. What’s new?

• Newly-wed Loida Lagonoy and her beau will be a complete family. Weeks from now, Loida will start having morning sickness. The stork might visit Junibe Froilan and Doc April Lumuthang-Froilan. Heaven might smile at them.

• The stork might pay Mary Anne Aparece-Verga and her hubby Doc Jon Mark Verga, a long-delayed visit (the couple’s daughter Ashiira is already two years old). Same for Vida Tirol-De Juan and Butch De Juan (Bea is no longer an infant).

• It’s another brighter year for Mikey Gatal as he will continue to attend sosyalan events. And he will find a partner that’s his and his alone.

• It will be a good year for Karen Gallman and Fer Mary Baliquig if they will join (again) in the Bb. Pilipinas.

• With the bright trail paved by the likes of Ted Ramasola, some of our Boholano indie makers will win awards in filmfests.

• The “missing” Mary Ebone Cimafranca will resurface with a big “surprise.”

• This year is a busy, busy year for Bohol’s Queen of Tourism Dame Rose Soy. She will not relinquish her crown as Santacruzan Queen.

• Bohol will be the set location of a movie. No elaboration.

• Idy Cagas will seriously think of finding a seductive boyfriend. No elaboration.

• Something “big” is in store for Bohol’s fashion icon EJ Relampagos. No elaboration.

• Albur’s asin tibuok (rock salt) will be revived by few citizens. Not only the cows and goats will use it, it will be available soon. Incidentally, asin tibuok will be featured on Jan. 13, 2013 on Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho on GMA 7.

• Rich Asuncion’s star will shine even brighter and bigger. It’s good karma for her because she doesn’t forget her humble beginnings. Ask the people of Causeway and you will know.

• Boholano boxing icon Nonito Donaire will become the fighter of the decade. Boholano athletes like Jedara Docena Bautista and Jesus Pacaldo will also shine.

• Blind hymnist Onecimo “Onie” Oclarit will release a great album. Same for Loboc Children’s Choir and Loboc Youth Ambassadors Band.

• Vanity Kintanar Salinana will spread good vibes here and abroad. Hurrah to the Queen!

• Young entrepreneur Dalareich Polot will become a household name. The “tableya princess” will have a new business venture.

• Bromantical buddies whose stars will continue to shine are Marc Joseph Batoy, Clement Paulinel Lofranco Ingking and Chris Zambernard Milan.


• Only forty percent of the politicians running under a prominent party in this May’s elections will win. Voters are now (hopefully!) more intelligent and more discerning.

• Many politicians will feel the pain after they will discover that “traydoray ra ang show” from their political mates. Ouch!

• The winner for governor is….Drum roll please! The complete name has letters C, O and R. Look, I didn’t say if a “he” or a “she”.  Ooops! The crystal ball becomes blurred! He! He! He!

• Tagbilaran City has a new mayor. He will definitely be a Tagbilaranon. Clue? His complete name has letters A and N!  Ooops! The crystal ball becomes blurred! He! He! He!

• A vocalist of a (famous) band in Bohol will make an earth shaking revelation about his life.

• Prominent Boholanos will become victims of scams and identity theft on social networking and microblogging site Twitter.

• Two best friends (from prominent families) will wage an ugly word war against each other on — Facebook.

• A band will fade away to give way to a new band.

• Expect “bromance” relationships as the growing population of maya and paminta are most welcomed this year. On the other hand, a student-model will make a shocking revelation that he is “born this way.”

• A winner of a pageant will make shocking revelations. No elaboration.

• Toward the middle of the year, a daughter of a wealthy businessman and a son of a prominent businessman will tie the knot this year, the wedding of the year! Clue? DU and WY.

• A personality will send feelers for a return to a prominent politician who is running this year which this personality left a few years ago but the prominent politician will simply turn a deaf ear.

• After all the awayan, two politicians will kiss and make up. That’s what friends are for.

• A prominent separated couple will bury the hatchet and kiss and make up.

• The wholesome images of prominent personalities (in politics and business) will be tarnished by issues against them.

• Two shows each in two stations will fold up middle of the year – or even earlier.

• A young politician will get involved in a politically-motivated controversy.

• A newspaper might change hands (ownership, I mean) or two newspapers will merge.

• Two prominent couples will break up, one due to the husband’s infidelity and the other one due to, ehem, “third party.”

• The popularity of these hosts–comediennes will wane or will completely slip out of the scene as young and new host from nowhere will steal the limelight.

• A radio commentator will finally be lured to jump ober da bakod from dy to DY.

• A prominent couple will break up but will reconcile after a while.

• The station war will be as intense as ever. The stations will openly back some candidates and so will the other stations.

• Foreign artists will have concerts here. Yehey!

• Scandals will rock the political scene. Some will try to get media mileage out of it.

• A Boholano will shine in a reality TV search.
• Some Boholanos in the field of beauty pageant, public service, music and fashion will bring pride to Bohol.

• A distinguished messenger of the Word, a lawyer, a cultural icon, a beauty pageant watcher and a mediaman will ride a pale horse! Their rainbows will no longer be seen...forever.
