Tagna-Tagna 2015
It’s tagna-tagna season once again! How time flies, noh!?  

A lot of  VRS readers who are diehard believers in the horoscope have been asking what’s in store for them in the 2015, also known as the Year of the Wooden Sheep ( Year of the Goat or Year of the Ram), which will officially begin on Chinese New Year in February 2015.
According to astrologers and feng shui experts, the Year of the Sheep follows the tumultuous Year of the Horse and heralds a more calm atmosphere.  If last year was the Horse’s year to gallop and take off, this year will be the year for contemplating and appreciating what has already been accomplished, to think about bringing goodness to others and to look for a brighter side.
Green is the lucky color of 2015. “Have a touch of color green to enhance money and luck,” says my friend- astrologer-geomancer Edward.
2015 will be a year of prosperity, luck and opportunity for many.
And as tradition is hard to break, VRS is dishing out his annual tagna-tagna (batting average is 98% every year). 
Drum roll please...
• Former beauty queen Anna Maris Igpit and her Aussie football player Thomas Taylor are seriously planning to march down the aisle in May.
• Youth leader and composer Clyde Ebojo and Marjorie Robles are planning to seal their love this year. Also, Elvie Bongosia of Philippine Information Agency (PIA) and her beau will settle down this summer.
• Sorry, folks, but some of labidabs hinting at marching down the aisle may not survive the year. Right, Rebecca Lusterio and Thomas Mejiso and Alfeo Jabinez and Amy Fiel Booc?  But  David Maulas and Jenissa Laguda Peteros  and Marianne Domivee Chatto and Haibon Lim Mapute might try (subject to further “testing”).
• Tableya Princess Dalareich Polot will remain loveless. But, she will make gold this year! Read: Ginto
• Miss Bohol 2014 will finally (finally!!!) find a boyfriend who is romantic, confident, artistic, foreign, free spirit (aka the bad boy), intelligent/witty and considerate!
• Panglao beauties will make it big this year: Candy Cumayas will try to join another national beauty pageant, Catherine Tabaniag and Mary Rose Butalid will bring home the bacon for Panglao.
• Something “big” is in store for beauty queen Immaculada Cleofe Leopardas who will have a busy year modelling for a popular website. 
• Beauty queens Geraldine Topsnik, Idy Cagas and Felisse Marie Carvajal will have colorful lovelife!  
• The stork might pay Architect Junibe Froilan, Jr and Dr. April Lumuthang-Froilan (of Touch of April) a visit this year.
• Department of Agriculture administrative officer Atty. Joan Jagonos will start having morning sickness middle of the year and it will make her husband Benjie Oliva very happy. A possibility: Eden Descallar of Globe will also make her husband Mikel Ceballos very happy by breaking to him the good news that she’s “expecting”…

• It will be a healthy baby girl for Diane Uy-Yap and Atty. Wrenly Yap in February!
• Abdul Wallace and Chandrina Elluiska Schreurs-Wallace should expect the stork’s visit.
• Former beauty queen Loida Lagonoy-Viloria and her husband George Viloria will make an important announcement—a stork’s visit this year.
•Hannah Precillas’ star will shine even brighter and bigger. Ang bet natin!  
• Something big for Kimpoy Mainit and Humfrey Nicasio, Marc Joseph Batoy, Danilo Torcende, Adryan Mila, Carlos Alfonso Cuerquiz and Ar-Ar dela Serna will happen this year.
• Pope Francis might visit Bohol this January 2015. Even after the schedule for the papal visit was already finalized, most Boholanos continued to pray that Pontiff will change his mind and drop by Bohol before or after visiting Leyte.
• A topnotch lawyer and (a veteran) politician will have a tearful reconciliation. All’s well that ends well.
•  Another big scandal will shake the political scene, more intense that some may vacate the seats.
• A movie which will be made in Bohol will win accolades in international film festivals.
• An inspiring young model’s wholesome image will be tarnished by issues against him.  Hijo, be careful!
• A prominent community organizer (CO) will be named to a government position but the appointment will be shadowed by a controversy involving the CO’s personal life.
 An inspiring young model cum young socialite might find herself experiencing morning sickness...that is, if she doesn’t take the necessary precautions.Sayang ka day kay something great things are in store for her in 2015.
• Another block time radio program will fade out. No elaboration.
• More prominent Boholanos will get entangled in senseless controversies due to their addiction to social networking.
 The wedding of a couple who announced their engagement in 2015 will either not be pushed through or will be postponed indefinitely.
• A new talent from Bohol will make name this year. The talent is one of the few Boholanos who will give honor to Bohol.
• A messenger of the word, a prominent politician, a great lawyer, an artist, an educator, will be in Summerland. (Knock on the wood!)
• Bohol will make a world headline. No elaboration.
•Beauche owner and former Carmen Mayor CheChe Toribio delos Reyes will make a final decision (to run or not to run in 2016) middle of this year.
• Before the year ends, veteran politicians in the white sandy part of Bohol will announce their intention to join next year’s election, one of them a doctor will run against his best friend.
•Unlike in previous elections, very, very few (old and veteran) politicians will dare run in 2016…blame it on the scrapped “pork”? However, towards the end of the year, more (young and inexperienced) politician will declare their intention of running in the 2016 elections. Some will do mudslinging in the last quarter of the year. But, sad to say, only a few of them will win.
The Year of the Sheep is just four days old. There is still 11 months this 2015 to watch for more surprises!
Note: As I said, these are all tagna-tagna (bunga lang sa panghunahuna) and I could be wrong, you know.
Seniang aftermath
Just like Kevin Costner’s Waterworld, some towns of Bohol suffered the same fate due to tropical storm Seniang on Dec. 30, 2014.
Major areas affected were Loboc, Bilar, Cortes, Maribojoc, Loon, Inabanga, Antequera, Batuan and Balilihan. Loboc became a virtual “waterworld” though, surprisingly, it did not lose a single one of its more than 3,500 families.
Seniang left several houses destroyed and four dead.
Salute to the members of Bantay Bayan-Bohol and Guardians headed by Jun “Alerto” Gutierrez and members of the Bohol Paddlers Association headed by Dominic Borja Aparicio for being on hand to help during the flood in Loboc town. The Rotary Club of Tagbilaran headed by Tagbilaran Councilor Nerio "Butchie" Zamora III and members of JCI-Chocolate Hills headed by its president Mayelle Hubac with Dr. Janice Aurora Tirol, Ph.D. were there to distribute relief goods in flood areas in Loboc. Special mention to Miss Bohol 2014 Queenie Melody Fullante whose presence gave assurance to people that everything would be fine.
2014 was a year of man-made and natural disasters but despite everything, Boholanos ended the year with the spirit of Thanksgiving.   It exemplifies the resilience of Boholanos to face great challenges and go on living with magnanimous faith.

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.
