Get Intimate with the Queen City Of the South

Tuburan Bound


On our way to Asturias to visit someone, we dropped by the quiet municipality of Tuburan. Tuburan is known for its peace-loving locals and laid-back lifestyle. To get to Tuburan, you have four options. First, you can take the Toledo route. Second, you can go up the Transcentral Highway and turn right when you reach Balamban. Third, you can drive up north and turn left for Tabuelan when you reach Logo. Or fourth, you can drive all the way to San Remigio and turn left towards Tuburan.

For this trip, we took the fourth route.

————-

The lovely municipality of Sogod.

The hills of Sogod can easily equal the chocolate hills of Bohol.

The fields of Bogo City are very similar to the sugarcane plantations of Negros.

The town of Tuburan.

The town church of Tuburan.

The angels that guard the door.

The church ceilings were undergoing repairs.

Church facade showing very interesting designs.

Every town has its own Joe.

My motorbike needed some fixing! Oops. But don’t worry. ‘Vulcanizing shops’ can be found in almost every corner in Cebu. =)

Also, wherever you are in the Philippines, there’s always the trusty Sari-sari store for some quick bites. =)

Checking out the old port of Tuburan.

After our quick stop, we continued driving until we reached Asturias.

Visit Tuburan and Asturias now!

    when we were living in cebu i used to spend my summer vacation in san juan tuburan cebu your pics bring back happy memories……..thanks

  4. ianne February 22, 2007 at 2:24 pm

    Omigod! I did spent a couple of summers in Tuburan. We climbed the mountains for 3 long hours, but rested once in awhile. Our house helpers
    live in the deep mountains and yes, we did our toilet business in the bushes!=) I remember a cousin drank water from the stream and she
    swallowed a baby mosquito with it. It was hilarious! I miss making
    cassava bud-bud, picking fruits & being serenaded by bunch of drunken
    young men there! bahakhak!! Thanx a million to you, Leyland.

    kadaghan mga tuburanon…way bay mga kaila sad sa santa lucia asturias? medyo duol naman ni di ba? kung agi luyo sa may daang lungsod mas dali di ba?

  33. montecillo April 20, 2008 at 7:45 am

    The Montecillos are from Sogod – eventaully spreading out Catmon, Borbon, Carcar, Tuburan, Mabolo, Medellin, Daan Bantayan, Bogo and Mandaue. I grew up in Catmon but loved visiting Tuburan.

    I love the imagery that it is still pretty laid back.

    Thanks!

  34. tikboy April 20, 2008 at 8:25 am

    To the Montecillo:

    I may have a distant Motecillo relative/s. My late Mom’s heritage was from Sogod, Cebu. Her father was Motecalvo and her mom was Montebon. When i was little, i often overheard my old folks (mom, her sis/bro and some relatives) chatting among themselves abt a relative of them married to Montecillo. . .etc. They talked more often of that priest (Montecillo). I’ve been to Sogd only twice and that was ages back. . Don’t know how Sogod’s progress now in general.

  44. tikboy July 27, 2008 at 7:35 am

    hello Aida,

    My grandma on my mother’s side was a Montebon and married to Motecalvo, though she hails from Sogod… she had passed away long time ago…your father cld be perhaps related to them, who knows . .i’ve been to Sogod twice in my life and that was ages back. . .that time Sogod was still very rustic. . .
    I had 2 small properties in Mandaue, Tabuk and Ibabao-had them rented out for now. .talk to you soon!!

  45. Aidida Gallardo Montebon July 28, 2008 at 7:04 pm

    Hello Tikboy,

    Glad to hear from you, I am now residing in Opao, Mandaue City since my relatives are in the province. I do usually check this blog for finding someone whom I’ve known in that humble province I had came by.

    Nice knowing you again :)

  46. Aidida Gallardo Montebon July 29, 2008 at 8:49 am

    I just found out that the picture regarding the sleepy fishing village above was a picture of my son when we are about to go back to Mandaue. That is my youngest son “Onin” he is 8yrs old. He has a twin brother “Ondo” which is in the bus during that time.

  47. tikboy July 29, 2008 at 8:51 am

    thanks, Aidz. to start with, can u tell me your dad’s name and his age, maybe i cld ask my other siblings back home. i do not have anymore living aunts & uncles in my mom’s side-maybe some cousins or other distant relatives cld perhaps hlep me connect the missing dots, if any.

  48. Aidida Gallardo Montebon July 29, 2008 at 11:10 am

    My father’s name is Felomino Montebon born in 1922 which has a sibling(Teodoro Montebon) already living in Seattle Washington. How old are you coz it seems that I’m more older than you. My father died already, he was a photographer then at National’s Studio near in San Carlos University a long time ago.

  49. tikboy July 31, 2008 at 8:34 am

    Aidz, i am in my early 50’s. we had a distant relative named Inting Montebon who used to work with ‘Singer’ (sewing machines). The last time i met him was in Davao & that was it, no more comm. There was this also a teacher at USC girls high who mentioned to my wife that we might be related as she or her parents hail from Tuburan/Sogod. There are also some Montebons in Leyte. My mom was born Y1929. I’ll pass on this your name and that of your dad to my siblings in Cebu, hope they cld start making connection.

    where r u based btw- i am here in canada.

  50. Aidida Gallardo Montebon July 31, 2008 at 2:16 pm

    I’m so happy that I have a lot of relatives in different sides of the world. Perhaps we are in the same age span because I’m at 50 already. I thought you were in Mandaue coz I think we are just neighbors and would like to see you in person :). By the way what’s your profession there? I’m here in Cebu particularly in V.B. Cabahug Private Rd. Opao Mandaue City. My relatives are in Seattle Washington, you may want to get in touch with them too at:
    Mr. Theodore Montebon
    4515 Martin Luther King Jr. Way S.
    Seattle, WA 98108-2182

  51. tikboy August 1, 2008 at 8:07 am

    my sister works @ mandaue, maybe she could give u a call or you can call her-phone # is 344-0433 (office)-is it you who is Montebon or your husband?. which school did you graduate and what year? i have sent a copy of these our exchanges of communication to my sis. do you have email add so we could talk more privately. this is a public site and Ley may not be happy about this, it seems we monopolized his blog to discuss personal stuff.

  52. tikboy August 1, 2008 at 8:11 am

    Aidz, her name is Susan. . .

  53. Aidida Gallardo Montebon August 1, 2008 at 5:47 pm

    I have a plan already to send you an email because of it, my apologies to Ley however you can drop me an email at osiristm@gmail.com(this was my son’s email that he gave me) and I’m a pure Montebon, I have 3 siblings(2 bro’s and 1 sis). We have a landline 238-7932 but PLDT is still working on 1 of the damaged post in our area to make it work. I graduated in Tuburan National School way back 1973. I studied in college at Cebu Central Colleges now University of Cebu but I didn’t finish my Accounting course because I was married. There’s a lot of Susan I knew, 1 from Potat and the other 1 is from Poblacion Tuburan. Well see ya then, I will wait for your email and connect the dots of our clan.

    this is the most beautiful travel blog i have encountered. I am planning to go home and spend 2 weeks in Cebu and am inspired to take the time to go to these small towns and villages and really immersed myself to the real filipino life and enjoy the beautiful nature God gave us to enjoy. I have traveled all over the world and have realized there is still so much i have to see, explore and enjoy in my own country. You have inspired me.

      Mr. X,
      Dakung Tuburanon pud ko, I really missed my hometown and I’m so excited to go home and show my kids how lovely it is. Pero when my brother got shot/died few years ago ( today is his death anniversary). I think it is not safe anymore to visit.
      Tnood grabee na gyud kaau ang iligal sa ato.
      Mag-ampo lang ko nga ang mga naglingkud sa atoa nga makatabang unta ug hatag ug hustisya sa kadtong mga natungdan.
      Leylander ,Thanks for the upload ,very nice pics.I hope u will not stop uploading more.
      God Bless to all…

      • Mr. X June 23, 2009 at 12:39 am

        Tuburan will never be the same again…..even those who are running the government are just thinking for themselves. No wonder they want to be like the Duranos, my gosh what a shame.

        But things which really bothered me the most are those highly-addicting substance that is very rampant in Tuburan already. So many small-time pushers supported by big-time pushers plus the police forces….what a great shame, pera lang ang katapat.

        • marie s. tabotabo September 28, 2009 at 10:38 pm

          I totally agree! KOn makadaug pa gani mga Suezo, samot na jud Tuburan for the next how many years!!! that’s why the Tuburanons should really make a WISE DECISION this coming election..

  92. Dr Arcadio P Sincero June 1, 2009 at 11:37 pm

    jhea,

    You said that your husband is from Antipolo. I was wondering what his name is. I am also from Antipolo, the son of Santiago Encarguiz Sincero and Gaudiosa Pacquiao Sincero.

    • taga carmelo July 27, 2009 at 4:30 am

      Hello! Are you the son of Santiago Sincero? I don’t know if you are talking of the same Tiago in Antipolo a relative of my late Lola Fausta Sincero who lived in Carmelo.

      • Dr Arcadio P Sincero July 27, 2009 at 9:35 am

        Yes, I am. Your Lola Fausta was my Aunt. I stayed in Manding Fausta’s house for a short time while I was going to high school in Tuburan. We just walk to Tuburan. Then I stayed in Nang Esping’s house. Do you know if Nang Esping is still there in Carmelo. Her last name is Nainge.

        • taga carmelo July 29, 2009 at 12:29 am

          Yes I know Nang Esping but I’m not currently living in Carmelo, so I don’t have any news about her for the moment. Oh so you’ve stayed my Lola’s house, some of our relatives have stayed there too as I remember the daughters of Noy Jose. I was with my lola the last time I visited Antipolo, that was many many years ago. I can still remember how long we had to walk to reach Antipolo bringing with us “kamoteng kahoy” back home.
          Every now and then I’m comunicating with some of Tiya Senda’s daughters who are currently living in Australia.

          • Dr Arcadio P Sincero July 29, 2009 at 12:50 am

            So Taga Carmelo, where do live now. I forgot the names of Nang Senda’s children now. I know Nang Coba has already passed away because I have just been in Antipolo. I just returned July 2 or 3 this month from there. Taga Carmelo, you have not told me whose son or daughter are you. Are you the daughter or son of Nang Maria?

          • taga carmelo July 29, 2009 at 1:22 am

            Yes I am one of the daughters of Maria. I’ve been living near Venice for 20 years now because I got married to an italian national. We are 5 children of Maria, 3 of them remained in the Cebu while my other sister migrated to Auckland with her own family.
            My husband loves to visit Tuburan and Molobolo as well. We will be there in a few days.
            So how was your trip to Antipolo? It’s always a good feeling once you come back to our own land. Warm regards!

          • Dr. Arcadio P. Sincero July 29, 2009 at 9:29 pm

            So, Taga Carmelo, since you are the daughter of Nang Maria, you are my niece. Nang Maria is my first degree cousin. Nang Maria and the rest of the Sincero’s call me Deodet. So, I am your Tiyo Deodet.

            Taga Carmelo, you have not given me your name yet. I believe Nang Maria was married to an Esmero. I forgot his name.

          • Dr. Arcadio P. Sincero July 29, 2009 at 9:39 pm

            Taga Carmelo, since you are going back home I have to tell you something. If your home is air-conditioned there in Italy, then you will have a hard time when you return home adjusting to the temperature. The homes in Carmelo or Antipolo are not air-conditioned. The place is so hot for us accustomed to air-conditioned homes that there is no place to go but sweat all the time. The electric fan helps a little but not much. I think the best time to go home to the Philippines is during Fall or Winter. This, I realized because I was just there this month.

    • taga Carmelo July 30, 2009 at 1:08 pm

      Maayong buntag Tiyo Deodet, how are you? Amazing I found a relative here. My name is Helen Esmero. I’ve surfed your personal blog/site, wow! lots of achievements, not even an inch of what I’ve studied.
      A fellow from Carmelo who have lived so many years in Maryland resides now with his wife in Carmelo for good, his name is Tom Laurel.
      I know when you talk about humid temperature in the Philippines, a good excuse to go to Molobolo LOL. I go there almost everyday for an hour swimming during high tide. Fortunately we have an airconditioned house in Carmelo.

    To Leylander: I finally made it to Tuburan. I was the one who emailed you about how to get there. I just visited the church of St. Anthony de Padua, and gave a small donation there. I’m glad that I was able to fulfill my promise since I passed the physician’s licensure exams last August. Hopefully I’ll be able to explore the place sometime in the future. We just bought liempo in balamban en route to Cebu City.

  101. Marie Segarra-Tabotabo September 27, 2009 at 2:25 pm

    hello, people!

    I’m a first-term councilor of tuburan. my mother is the late Vilma Macoy Segarra and my dad is Ben Noel Segarra of Asturias. I’m glad to find Tuburanons here and I must tell you that the situation in our hometown is getting worse the administration of Boyet and Rosemarie Suezo. True, drug addiction is very rampant –especially that they could not control the pushers and dealers. Many believe this is because they are also into this business. Progress is very slow… water all over is insufficient and murky, the crime rate is very high (with a lot of women battered and killed by addict husbands and young girls being raped). Look around and you see stagnation and unemployment with many “tambays” and out-of-school youth. I have been trying to work for reforms but it is so frustrating under this administration as they will do not trust any good-intentioned official, insecure that their dominance will be eroded. it’s such a silly attitude coming from supposedly “educated” people. just ask around and you will hear people complaining and unhappy about their administration. please help in bringing about change in Tuburan — express your protest and indignation…. VOTE Wisely and tell your relatives at home not to be bought and/or intimidated. Only conscientious Tuburanons can bring about true change and reforms here! lET US HELP MAKE TUBURAN A BETTER AND PROGRESSIVE PLACE FOR OUR CHILDREN AND OUR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN!

    • Dr. Arcadio P. Sincero September 27, 2009 at 9:01 pm

      Hello, Marie,

      Councilor, I was wondering if you are related to Mr. Glicerio McCoy. He was my teacher in Colonia. My father, Santiago Sincero, lives in Antipolo.

      Actually, I have a very important question to you, as a Councilor. I just visited the tomb of my mother in the cemetery that is near the road that runs straight from the church. In the cemetery I saw a posted sign announcing that they will be removing the bones from the tombs whose relatives have not paid some money. I asked an employee in the Municipal Building who told me that the town needs to have some money. I was wondering why the Municipal Council is allowing this practice to be done. This is desecration of the dead. Thanks for your response. Councilor.

  102. Marie Segarra-Tabotabo September 27, 2009 at 2:36 pm

    To Jokerjan:

    What’s nice about a place where people cannot express their criticisms about the administration without being scolded and threatened by the Mayor and Vice-Mayor? What’s nice about a place where people are afraid to go out in fear of being attacked by “tulisans”. just this month, some small businessmen have been held up; this year, two wives killed by addict husbands, a 12-year old girl raped by a barangay treasurer known to be a close to the vice-mayor. what’s nice about a place filled with tambays and unemployed and people hacking each other in the streets! hunger among the poor is no surprise! you must be out of your mind to say that all is well in Tuburan. Either that, or you’re stoned, man!

  103. Marie Segarra-Tabotabo September 28, 2009 at 5:03 pm

    hi, Dr. Sincero!!

    Yup, Mr. Glicerio Macoy is my grandfather! glad to know one of his successful students!!!

    as for your concern, that’s precisely my point! our council is rendered helpless because it’s the mayor’s and vice-mayor’s prerogative. i’ve tried to make reforms but look what i got– i got kicked out of their party. it’s really very difficult expecially that only two of us in the municipal council speak up. still, i’m doing everything i can here as opposition but you must understand that those in power ARE in power. that’s why we’re organizing Tuburanons to wake up and make a stand. i’m with the women and children’s committee and have my hands full with so many violations on women and children’s rights.

    but i’ll raise your concern at the council. but right now, it’s the mayor and vice-mayor who make the call here. and they don’t listen much.. they say to solve the problem, one has to cut the problem from its roots– meaning, change of leadership… lol

    but let’s pray and hope that the tuburanons will opt for changes come election.. can we count on your support in this matter?

    thank you for hooking up and God bless you and family!!!

    and when you come back to Tuburan, be sure to drop by our house (Lolo Macoy’s house) and talk about the old man… lol

    marie

  104. Dr. Arcadio P. Sincero September 28, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    Marie,

    I support you for upholding what is right. I have long known that the politics of our country have become so ugly. I hope that more people would come to support your cause of women and children’s right.

    Yes, I know from my brother, Roel Sincero, from Antipolo that the Mayor and Vice-Mayor of Tuburan are not that good. And I’m also wondering how a husband and wife could be the Mayor and Vice-Mayor of a Municipality, respectively. I told my brother that whoever is elected should be supported. But he answered that it is not possible with this husband and wife. Roel Sincero is a Barangay Councilor of Antipolo.

    Marie, I thank you for raising my concern to the Council. What the Coucil is doing is desecration of the dead. All members of the Council could die someday too and they, as well, would not want their graves to be desecrated. In America, tombs of people who died long, long time ago could still be found with their names engraved on the tombs.

    Yes, Marie, when I’ll return home to Tuburan, I’ll come and see you. And, good luck in your effort. Mr. McCoy was one of my best teachers.

    Arcadio

  105. marie s. tabotabo September 28, 2009 at 10:23 pm

    HEllo, Arcadio (man, do you have a nickname i could use?)!

    thanks for the quick reply and the support. at least you’re one person on the side of righteousness, justice and democracy. well Antipolo is a known opposition barangay wherein the Suezo’s do not give any support. that’s another thing wrong with the Suezo administration — they’re a vindictive bunch who push their critics to the wall. funny. huh? instead of trying to win the hearts of people, they use pressure and intimidation. well, that’s old pinoy politics (talk about medieval ways!) — and that’s what me and my group are trying to put an end to.

    anyway, i’m also a professor at the University of San Carlos – Talamban campus. i teach Fine Arts subject. and if you will notice, my aunts (Perkins and Eleanor) are schoolteachers. furthermore, Lolo Macoy was also in politics and an oppositionist during the Marcos Regime. so i guess i’m one chip from the block.. hehehe!

    I look forward to seeing you when you come over, my new friend! Best regards to your family!!

      Marie,

      Arcadio is OK. I was called Arcadio by my classmates when I studied in the Cebu North Provincial High School there in Tuburan. However, if you go to Antipolo and tell some people there that you know Arcadio, they might not recognize this name right away. I’m called Deodet in Antipolo. On the same line, if you tell my classmates in Tuburan that you know Deodet, they, for sure, will not recognize this name. So, you can call me either Arcadio or Deodet, my friend.

      Arcadio/Deodet

      • Marie Segarra-Tabotabo October 2, 2009 at 12:21 pm

        Hello Deodet!

        thanks for your quick reply and my apologies for my delayed response..

        this is because the lady is busy here. ;-)

        anyway, i just came across a Tuburanon after attending first Friday mass here in Redemptorist church and we were just talking about the sad state of Tuburan because of the Suezos. Many are really furious already and would like to help. True, our unity and concern can go a long way in getting changes. The Bible says: “if God is on our side, who can be against us?” i also believe in the Tuburanon and the power of concerted effort –so let’s get organized and convince more Tuburanons to finally MAKE THAT CHANGE (in Michael jackson’s words, lol). we are organizing a movement called Tuburan for Progress Movement (TPM) to drum up support for the cause of change in Tuburan. Good change! it’s a multi-sectoral movement, so anyone who wants to help can join in. We are also drumming support to help our less fortunate Tuburanons. But more importantly, it is our goal to tell our fellow tuburanons to vote wisely and protect our votes come election…. how about it?

        marie

        • Dr Arcadio P Sincero October 3, 2009 at 7:19 pm

          Marie,

          Your idea of forming TPM for the purpose of cleaning up elections is good. Count me in.

          Deodet

          • Marie Segarra-Tabotabo October 3, 2009 at 9:12 pm

            hello, deodet!

            great! i’ll keep in touch then. we’re preparing a website so watch for it… meanwhile, have a great weekend, my friend! thank goodness wala madayon ang bagyong Peping. see?– prayers do work!

            and prayers will be our best weapon in the coming elections— apart from people power…. ;-)

            regards to the family!!

    Are you not afraid something might happen to you? Politicians are very dangerous people, they will do everything just to keep those people who are against them by turning them into silence. I admire your bravery and courage. I myself hated these people, my family and I have been anti-suezo and/or anti-gerona. Mga hakug ug pwesto, wala makontento sa ilang possessions. Gusto nilang diktahan ug i kontrol ang mga tawo. Kahibalo kaayo na sila nga wala silay amor sa among pamilya ug dili giyod sila katilaw sa among mga “PRECIOUS VOTES”. Manghinaut ko nga ang mga tawo, no matter what and no matter how convincing and intimidating these cold-hearted people are, they will stand to what they believe. Ayaw na intawon mo pagpabayad sa mga pulitiko uy, pila ra man nang kwartaha kung buot hunahunaon. This should not change your stand. You should know nga dako kaayo ug bayad ang ilang gipanghatag sa mga tawo para ipalit sa boto. Look how Tuburan has become karong mga panahuna. I am no longer proud to share the beauty of our town because of the presence of these worse scenarios that is brought about by the cruelty of such politicians. Mga pulis nagpabayad sa mga pushers, mao bitaw na kung naay madakpan gawas ra sab dayon kay nabayran man ang pulis. Bisag grabe na giyod ug ebedensiya, balewala ra giyod kay ngano……….KWARTA NA POD….HEHHEHE……..bullshit….

    • G.L November 10, 2009 at 12:07 pm

  108. Marie Segarra-Tabotabo September 29, 2009 at 8:34 pm

    Dear Mr. X,

    I would like to think that God is on our side and that He will not forsake those who call upon Him for help. If we will not press for our rights because we are afraid, all the more that these dirty politicians will abuse their power.

    There is a popular saying among UP people that: KUNG DI TAYO KIKILOS, SINONG KIKILOS? KUNG DI NGAYON, KAILAN PA?

    I WISH YOU WELL!

    ka nindot sa mga pictures sa akong lungsod, TUBURAN, I really miss you.
    Jo here presently residing in singapore.

  117. jomax December 6, 2009 at 2:41 am

    Why spoil this nice thread with politics, people are tired to hear or read awful news, and by the way what is new in our country??? How about the massacre in Mindanao, tragic, and according to news it was a political rivalry of 2 families that cost more than 60 lives. I’m glad TUBURAN is not in Mindanao.
    My father is from Tuburan whom I, unfortunately not met since birth, my mother who just past away (2 months ago) was unwed, and I’m an only child. I was born in Cebu and raised in Singapore, single handedly by my mom who was an Airline employee through out her life.
    There were many stories my mom told me about Tuburan since I was a child though in my recollection she visited only 4 times, I am now 38, and plan to bring my family of 3 to my father’s hometown this Christmas coz I have a business trip in Mactan, Cebu. And besides I have checked through friends, and credible sources that Cebu is one of the safest destination in the Philippines, and I really thank the person who’s responsible for this pictures and hope he can post more. My family is already very excited of this trip.

    way labot politika dre oi, kapuy na ana.

  119. atty December 6, 2009 at 4:56 am

    To: Marie Segarra-Tabotabo,

    I’m a worker in Capitol, I know you, I am very dissapointed in you telling stories to people on this site about how bad the town is when it is not true and worst your allegations to the town officials are serious. Can you support this? Are you going to stand by your allegations that the Suezo’s are drug pushers? I understand that you succeded your husband as Councilor in Tuburan after he run out of term(3 consecutive terms).
    And before you condem this people who do you think will run your town best. Tell us your preference, who they are, what they do, and most of all what can you do to make your town better.
    I have questions for you;

    Is it not true that your enjoying financial assistance of politicians who are running against the present administration?

    Is it not true that your Barangay Captain-husband recieved financial aid from the same with a staggering amount of Php 1.8 million from the province’s tax payers money in a short duration of less than a year? Which is 3 times more than the Barangay’s annual Internal Revenue Allotment(IRA).

    A piece of advice Professor Tabotabo, refrain from using this site of your Political Ambition and personal interest/s, by poisoning the mind of the people of your concocted stories. Maybe your jealosy to this people has driven you to commit “MORTAL SINS”,like the Ninth Commandment, and let me refresh your memory then, just incase- “YOU SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST YOUR NEIGHBOR”.
    CHARACTER ASSASINATION is but, a political term but same sense.

  120. ako December 6, 2009 at 10:23 pm

    Uhmmm…people please don’t argue here about politics. This is not the right place to voice out whatever wrongdoing politicians of own town are currently into.
    I love Tuburan and I miss it very much and I wish to hear positive comments of it’s beauty wonderful natural scenery rather than political aspects…can’t wait for the next homecoming najud!
    Dong leylander naunsa man ni sila oi ila na man hinoon ni gigamit imong blog sa political debate….badlonga kaha ni sila oi!

  121. Mr.Y December 6, 2009 at 11:12 pm

    @ Ako, I fully agree, my alumni in high school would like to hold our reunion there this year, and have already the venue, I heard Fermis Beach is good and will be booking it soon. Have cousins in Tuburan who assured me the place is safe and peaceful and we have no intention on cancelling it.
    I was told by Arch’t.Espina that this place has one of the best sunset in the north.
    @Ley, sir this is your call, I hope these politico fight in their own court, not here. NICE PICTURES OF THE TOWN, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

      Lagi, napikal na ko nga naabot na man politics ang istorya, maayo unta maka decide si Ley ug delete sa mga off topics.

  123. leylander December 7, 2009 at 10:24 am

    like i said before, palihug dili lang ta maghisgot sa mga butang nga walay kalabutan sa actual post. pwede ta magdiscuss lang tingali kung unsay naa sa mga pics ug anything nga closely related ana nila. kung gusto mo mag discuss ug issues about tuburan gyud, pwede ari lang tingali ta mag discuss – http://mycebuphotoblog.wordpress.com/istambayan/tuburan/

    salamat.

  124. Mr.Y December 7, 2009 at 10:39 am

    I have a good suspicion that Mr.X and Marie Tabotabo is one and the same, observe the similarities of their statements, and Mr.X sounds feminine.?????(“j)

    I really hate politicians, they just show up when election is near, the gall of using this site, it really makes me wanna puke.
    @ Leylander, your the man, this is your blog, shoo away those politicians.

  125. Mr.Y December 7, 2009 at 10:45 am

    Can anybody here suggest which way to take from Cebu City to Tuburan, Transcentral highway, north via Lugo, or south via Naga. Please, I really need your suggestions guys. Thank you very much.
    @ Leylander you were there which route did you took sir?
    Yor response will be very helpful, we are finalizing our trip. (“j)

  126. inday myrna December 7, 2009 at 6:27 pm

    Last January were having a drive from Carmen to Borbon, Tabogon, Bogo, San Remegio, Tuburan then Lugo and back. We really enjoy our day. Between San Remegio and Tuburan, geee to much bridges.

    We should go home via Transcentral H-way but our driver is not familiar with the winding road there, w/c he consider dangerous. Unlucky us. Irien and I opt for a V-hire ride but still did’nt make it. Maybe next time.

    Thank you Ley for the beautiful places you features in your blog. It makes me visit them.
