Bared... Tagna-Tagna 2009

Tagbilaran, Sunday, 18 January 2009

I greet our readers, tigmo-tigmo agukoy aron kita mag-asoy! Or I say, tagna-tagna agukoy aron kita mag-enjoy!

A lot of readers (who are diehard believers in the horoscope no doubt) have been asking what's in store for them in the Year of the Earth Ox (actually the Chinese will celebrate it on January 26, 2009, or the year 4707 in the Chinese calendar).

Is the year 2009, the year of the Ox, oks na oks for all?

The Ox symbolizes diligence, reliability, sincerity, strength and sound judgment. But, don't expect these lumbering souls to have a sparkling sense of humor or be style's not part of their precious package!

Astrologers say, on the whole, this will be a happier year than most: free from explosive events and wars and with far less catastrophes than, say, the years of the Tiger or the Dragon. Nonetheless, it will be spicy. It promises a lot of bickering, bargaining and petty arguments that will do little harm. A congenial time that will find most of us socializing and enjoying ourselves.

Oxens are also known in North America as water buffalos. They are the "cousin" animal of the carabao and cow. In Bohol, we love to eat carabeef during fiestas (in the town of Loboc, oh my God, I love kabaw chicaron and dinuguan, and, in Ubujan, Tagbilaran City and Sikatuna, they offer kabaw soup which is good for the stomach!). In Catigbian town, they have carabao for fashion and beauty pageant in the celebration of the Katigbawan festival.

My annual tagna-tagna, as usual and as expected, 90 percent of them came true. And to think that I don't need Madam Auring or Sylvia Browne (there's James Randi) to read the future for Bohol's who's who and newsmakers! Thanks to the power of radio, newspaper and the never-ending chika from the circle of friends.

Without much ado, here is Tagna-Tagna 2009.

Drum roll, please....

First, the wake-upper items:

  • SK National President Jane Censorias Cajes and her politician boyfriend will bare headed for splitsville because of a pretty third party. She has lots of projects (and another international conference to attend to)!
  • Titon Torralba (popularly known as Inday Rufing) will become an even bigger (more shows) "star" but his (?) love life will remain, sigh, zero.
  • The "war" between Mayor Dan Neri Lim and others will get worse, and, before it gets worse some of the mayor's friends will "abandon" him as the election is almost nearer!
  • DyRD will axe programs (one of them topbilled by a popular commentator) and a station will be "discipline" by an organization. The popularity of radio programs will continue; paid programs will wane and will have less and less followers because they have nothing new to offer. However, Inyong Alagad will become remain popular.
  • Ms Tagbilaran 2002 Twinkle Besas and Carl Ryan Du Lim (the apo of the Dui Ek Sam empire) will tie the knot anytime this year.

  • Despite rumors to the contrary, Teddy Ramasola and his girlfriend (the real love of his life since they were in high school) romance will even grow stronger (Oops!

  • Baba Yap will reveal the identity of his girlfriend (if he has any) to the public. He will (probably) not going to settle down this year, if, and that is a big if, as he wants to enjoy single blessedness. The apple of his eyes can't wait no more!

  • Joy Maglajos will admit that she's going steady with her boyfriend and has a plan to settle down after she will relinquish the crown.
  • Glenn Mark Blasquez will finally - finally! - meet the "woman of his dreams" whom he won't marry.
  • TBTK will be livelier this year but too far for the people to say. Moreover, controversies will continue.
  • Maximiel will be in the limelight, you now, in a real-to-life story. (Oops! The crystal ball suddenly becomes blurred. Hehehe!)

  • The second highest official in the province will discover that he's taking care of "snakes" inside his office.

  • A business couple, married not very long ago, will break up amidst an ugly controversy wherein they'll swap unsavory charges against each other, thus exposing their true colors. Ouch!
