Kumusta kayong lahat diyan sa Corcuera!  Tubong-Cavite ako at hindi pa nakarating ng Simara, pero may mga kamag-anak pa diyan.  The only one I remember (still living in the island) whom I met when I was in my early teens is Bernardo Faner, a first cousin.  Our fathers are brothers.  Balita ko ay naging konsehal siya diyan.

Regards to all of my relatives!

Hello po.  Hinahanap po namin si Cora Fajilan, galing sa Barrio Gobon - nakilala po namin siya sa Manila at nakitira sa amin ng matagal pero hindi na namin alam kung na saan na siya pagkatapos naming lumipat sa America noong 1995.  Alam lang po namin na galing siya sa Simara at panganay sa 11 mga kapatid na Fajilan.  Kung kilala ninyo po sila paki-bigay lang po ang email ni Angelo Achacoso sa caa249@nyu.edu o pakisagot lang po and aming post.  Maraming salamat po!

Guest: Simaranhon RSC Professor needs help ASAP!!

Sir Edgar Forca, a faculty member of RSC Main Campus was found to have a ruptured vein in his brain. He is scheduled to be operated asap. From Delos Santos Hospital, he was transferred to Quirino. The family is asking for prayers of healing and providence. They need to pool 500K for the operation.

 

I am calling all those who have been his students to please extend a helping hand. Sir Edgar Forca is from Simara. He has just finished a master's degree in Marine Biology from Silliman University. He is a very good teacher (he was my teacher in Ecology, 11 years ago). RSC still needs his expertise.

 

For those who wish to help, kindly send them through his brother: DARNEL FABIALA FORCA, 765 Tramo Road, Medina Compound, Manuyo 1, Las Pinas City. Cell No. 0929-8843631

Lyndon Fadri: Participation in Asi Concert

Btw, is the Simaranhon Club active or is there any Simaranhon org active here in Manila or abroad?

I would like to ask sana the org to be a co-sponsor the concert, that is - "BHSAA, Biniray 2009, Kusog Sibalenhon and Simaranhon Club present  ASI? The Concert". We won't ask for anything - but we'll appreciate it if you can sell some tickets, or help us get some sponsors, or help us get Simaranhon talents to participate. Of course, you won't be sharing in the financial loss/income, if any, of the concert.

Lyndon: banton

Dear Mr. Fruelda,

 

In Banton, our group has been advocating the anniversary observance to be based on 1622 when Banton became a pueblo under the Spanish Rule and not on the founding of Jones as a municipality under the American Regime. Simara also became a pueblo under the Spanish Regime, 1855 in particular. There may be so much sense basing your anniversaries from 1855 (that is - Simara was 150 years old in 2005 and will be 160 years old in 2015).

 

Manila celebrates its founding anniversary based on its founding during the Spanish Regime.

 

Imaw yang,

Lyndon

Gilbert Fajiculay: Staten Island, NewYork

The Battle of Tanruaw Hill in Simara from March 12-16, 1945, put the name of our very own island in US military history books. This month is the 63rd anniversary of this battle.

 

Our very own Simaranhon soldier, Armando Fallar Falceso, was a participant (and still a living witness) in that historic encounter. He scouted, along with the US reconnaisance team, the positions and strength of the enemy on the slopes of Tanruaw Hill. And he was with a company strength of US soldiers, forward-based in Mindoro, which landed in Ilijan Beach, went around Labnig and Gobon to Mabini, and then assaulted the enemy on the Tanruaw hillsides.

 

In this anniversary, let us again give thanks to the US and Filipino soldiers who gave their ultimate sacrifice so that we all can live in freedom and enjoy our way of life.

 

To learn more about this battle and Armando Falceso's role during WW2, please read the articles under the Feature Story tab.

Ambring And Mila: Simara/NY

Remembering Simara and Simaranhons’ history -- priceless!

 

The Municipality of Corcuera, popularly called Simara, became a separate municipality from the Municipality of Jones, now Municipality of Banton, in 1931. This historic event was made possible to a great extent with the valuable effort of then Governor of Romblon Manuel T. Albero.

 

In 1918, when the Municipality of Jones came to exist..., the island of Simara became part of its jurisdiction. Atanacio Fallar Faminiano, a Simaranhon, was appointed Presidente Municipal, holding such post until 1919. Interesting! To his credit, he was elected to the same post (1923-1925), after the term of the first elected Municipal President in the person of Rufo Faigao, a “great son of Banton.”

 

In 1931, when the island of Simara became a separate municipality, Atanacio Fallar Faminiano became the Municipal President until 1935. Politically interesting!

 

Our query relating to the “Diamond Jubilee...” brings us information that Mayor Eddie Mazo, Chairman of the Corcuera Town Fiesta 2008, initiated the plan to commemorate also the Diamond Jubilee -- there being none in 2006 -- of our Municipality!

 

Simaranhons! Historically moving forward...

Great!

YOUR STAND MATTERS MOST!

 

we are aware of our country's present
situation.jun lozada's disclosure about
the controversial ZTE deal is
the hottest issue among tabloids, among
the mouths of filipinos.

 

the truth at the back of the truth is
at stake. the government's stand is
divided. most people are confused.
administration and opposition have
their own stand. what about the
church's stand? some question it...

 

how credible were jun lozada's
testimonies is one of the questions
that sometimes bother me... how sincere
was he?

 

nevertheless, i am a filipino who must
not remain numb and speechless
especially now that the common good of
the people is at stake...

 

i'm for the truth and i want the truth
to prevail...truth that would set us
free and would unite our government,
our people, our church, our
aspirations, our hope, our stand...

 

the fight and quest for the truth is
our goal... sana lang lumabas na ang
katotohanan nang kaguluhan, bangayan,
rally, takutan, turuan ng kamay, away,
kampihan, hugasan ng kamay, taguan,
suhulan at patayan at matapos na...

 

hindi **** at puti and pagpipilian
dito... it's a true to life gamble for
freedom and veracity.

 

parurusahan and magkakasala at ang
walang takot na isinisigaw ang
katotohan para sa katarungan at
kapayapaan ay tutularan!

 

mabuhay ang nagsasabi ng katotohanan!
kakampi mo ako... sino ka nga ba?yan
ang malaking katanungan!

 

ikaw ba yan na nagbabasa nito?

Dear Mayor Eddie,

 

I hope you remember me. We met during the "meeting de avance" in Simara and also in the house of former Congressman Lolong Firmalo after the election.

 

Please coordinate with my brother Jun Famatigan of Couples for Christ for whatever help we can do for the Simaranhons.

 

I pray that you will be given good health and wisdom to lead the Simaranhon.

 

Let us forget first politics and work with the present administration so that there will be more projects in Simara that will benefit the residents.

 

In 2010, I will support the opposition party.

 

Sincerely,

Manang Delia

Mayor Eddie Mazo: .

Greetings!

 

The Corcuera Town Fiesta has always been a much awaited annual event in our beloved hometown of Simara. Held in honor of our Patron Saint St. Joseph the Worker, it has become a grand reunion of sort for the proud Simaranhons many of whom momentarily pause from their work to return to the place of birth and join the islanders in the weeklong celebration.

 

This year’s fiesta coincided with the municipality’s Diamond Jubilee celebration.

 

This year’s theme “Seventy Seven Years of Hard and Fruitful Work; Corcuera Moves Forward” reflects the municipality’s strong determination to prosper amidst adversities thru hard work. Love for work is the value that our Patron Saint, St. Joseph the Worker inspires.

 

As in previous town fiestas, the success of the celebration depends largely on the support of Simaranhons especially those who have made good in their chosen career and business.

 

To ensure a joyous and successful celebration of our town fiesta and Diamond Jubilee this April 2008, we would like to appeal for your financial support. Your help could be any or all of the following:

  1. Contribution – As benefactor, your name will be included in the list of benefactors which shall be published in the souvenir program.
  2. Prizes and Awards – As donor, your name will also be included in the list of donors to be published in the souvenir program.
  3. Sponsorship / Advertisement in the 2008 Town Fiesta and Diamond Jubilee Souvenir Program.
    • Whole page - P 3,000.00
    • One-half page - 1,500.00
    • One-fourth page - 750.00

 

 May I also take this opportunity to invite you to come and see again our beloved hometown this April 2008 Town Fiesta & Diamond Jubilee celebration.

 

Thank you and may God Bless and guide you in your pursuit of further success.

 

Your Kasimanwa,

HON. EDDIE F. MAZO

Municipal Mayor / Chairman 2008 Town Fiesta & Diamond J

Ambring/Mila: Simara

The rationale of the “ Pagrumrom sa Paghinale” is interesting!

 

We believe Lyndon and his companions have had forwarded official communication to Mayor Eddie Mazo of Simara in this regard.

 

We are not certain if Atanacio Faminiano, the first Mayor of our island-municipality is still familiar to majority of Simaranhons, particularly the younger generations; we are not sure, likewise, if Atanacio Faminiano, the first appointed Mayor of Jones, now Municipality of Banton, is still known to most of Bantoanons, including the younger generations.

 

We have read a write-up pertaining to the names of the streets of Banton; we, as Simaranhons, will be grateful if, not only in relation to “Pagrumrom sa Paghinale” but, of course, in the name of history, Atanacio Faminiano Street will be visible not only in Simara but also in Banton.

 

In Simara, we are advocating local history as significant component of Simaranhon society. Hopefully, our local officials and fellow Simaranhons would include in their agenda historical matters of great importance!

 

We are grateful to Nota Fampo Magno for her efforts; may her research reach the dawn of Simara history, not only from the period of Spanish colonization.

Lyndon F. Fadri: Banton

Sa Mga Hinaleng Simaranhon,

 

I believe you have heard about the “Pagrumrom sa Paghinale” celebration (for the Maghali Group) to be hosted by Banton. I am personally inviting you visit http://maghali.yagting.com to see the details.

 

I am also appealing for your support for this endeavor. Kindly choose a person who will represent Simara in the executive committee of the celebration (or should I say – any volunteer?). There is not much to do. It will be more of coordination.

 

Two important things for now:

  1. Please form/send a basketball team to represent Simara in the First Maghali Basketball Tournament. Prizes are modest but we plan to help subsidize transport / lodging. How much it would be is still being discussed – it is thus important that we hear your side. We’ll have a formal announcement soon.

     

    Actually, if finance would be a major problem, you may raise fund through advertisement to the souvenir program / maghali website. The rates are as follows:

    • 1/8 Page & 1 Web Page P 750.00 / $ 20.00
    • 1/4 Page & 1 Web Page P 1,000.00 / $ 25.00
    • 1/2 Page & 1 Web Page P 1,500.00 / $ 40.00
    • 1 Page & 1 Web Page P 2,500.00 / $ 65.00

     

    I’ll be sending/giving the pro-forma solicitation letter to your chosen representative or the volunteer.

  2. Please choose/send a “princess” to the coronation night. We will leave it up to you how you will select.

 

Finally, let me invite everyone to Banton for this Maghali event and may this be a start of closer kinship and more progressive Maghali Group.

 

Contact me though my cell phone (0918 9182176) or email (rayabrayab@yahoo.com).

 

Lyndon

 

(Btw, just read some posts regarding history. The Asi Studies Center for Culture and the Arts based in Banton is doing a research on the history of Maghali. Doing the research are Nota Fampo Magno and Abner Faminiano. Not is your kasimanwa. Abner grew up in Banton but I bet you are very familiar with his surname. I am hopeful t

Thank you very much for the initiative and effort by endorsing my grandfathers' memory.

 

I was able to mention all this things to my relatives and other friends known to me and they are very happy to have it realize in the near future.

 

Uncle Naydo,(your classmate)rest in peace last Sept 18, 1998 due to High blood pressure.

 

My father is very happy too knowing the motives and purpose of the endorsment. He has bunch of story and accounts that will identify simara back to when Simara is still a Brgy of banton,under Municipaltiy of Romblon ,of Province of Capiz, to world war II up to present.He is one of the Living Testimony of Simara Before and now.

 

Again, Thank you very much and Belated happy new year.

Greetings!

 

Auntie Nilda Famorcan-Telfezian, proponent of "RANAS" and coordinator in the West Coast and nearby areas, and my brother Billy Fajiculay, coordinator in the East Coast and nearby locations, are expressing their thanks to fellow Simaranhon/friends for the positive outcome of this common effort -- rice-gift...

 

As of December 10, 2007, the total amount of One thousand five hundred dollars ($1,500.00) has been collected/received for this purpose.

 

Those who are interested to share a gift of whatever amount may contact the coordinators. Your participation is always "on season," timely and meaningful.

 

Simaranhons anywhere, elsewhere -- outside of North America -- are also invited to maki-"RANAS" in your own way for same purpose. You may contact Simara directly; our contact persons there in this regard are SB Members Leo Famorcan and Orlando Fajarillo. Obviously, both and many others will be glad and ready to assist anyone along this gesture, and beyond.

 

For details about "RANAS," kindly visit forum/bulletin board/blessings on this site.

 

Thank you!

Again, Merry Christmas!

Randy, thank you for addressing me “Uncle” in good faith.

 

Your uncle, Reynaldo Frogosa, is a classmate of ours --with my wife -- at Corcuera Academy, now Corcuera National High School.

 

Moreover, thank you for your posting herein on historical accounts concerning Simara. Since you are far from Simara this time, I shall deeply appreciate it if you could request your family in Alegria to put together a historical piece from the available documents.I agree with Gil Fajiculay’s suggestion to you...

 

Simara history from the ancient past up to recent yesterday is, undoubtedly, a treasure! Simaranhons must genuinely excavate data, bring to the open for others to see, evaluate, and put together an output -- beyond reasonable doubt as to accuracy, adequacy, clarity, and credibility, among other parameters. The entire history of Simara Island: People, Events and Beyond! is a treasure waiting to be excavated one spot, or more, at a time until we, Simaranhons, can truly be proud of our “complete find” -- who we, Simaranhons, really are?

 

Every day is history in the making. In honor of your grandfather Pablo Frogosa, as pioneer in maritime travel in Simara via Carmeling, we are advocating for quite a while, among other historical matters, the renaming of the Port of Corcuera to Pablo Frogosa Port. The primary reason is historical concerning Simara, Simaranhon leaders and pioneers.

 

Whatever you could share in matters pertaining to this and our networking for the greater good of our alma mater and of Simara for that matter is, in effect, valuable in our being members of the entire Simaranhon family.

 

Again, thank you and Merry Christmas to you and to everyone!

Randy Frogosa grandson of PABLO FROGOSA: Alegria Corcueara Romblon -now in Doha Qatar

Uncle Ambring? (i should call)

 

I just read you notes after a wrote the first summary of my lolo accounts, I have a write-up of my lolo's account kept in my father house (Antonio "TONY" Frogosa )at Alegria, like an old authobiography of his experience, and his legacy being the First Mayor of Simara (i guess if my account is right)during the Pre-war from his original position as "BISE-DE-ALKALDE of the old Simara.

 

as far as i my lolo's story is concern....he knew the story of Simara.. way back since 1880"s.

 

And this was proven correct with some of his story proven true with an account excavations from many areas of Simara, that early people of Simara has a very good History and traditions.

 

Example: the relics and skeletal remains that was excavated in coconut plantation of "Tang During Fruelda(deceased)way back i was in grade 2, i still remember a jars, braceletes of colored stones and anklets of silver and gold plated necklaces exacavated known as "ANTIK"local dialects.

 

This excavation was done by Noe Fojas now a husband of Norma Faminiano Fojas, a midwife of Alegria.

 

Alegria is former "Baranggay Bagaruyong" in the tip most East of Simara.During my lolo's fathers' time, being the prominent man in Simara those time, they change the name into Alegria in memory of the priar named Alegria who stay in Bagaruyong(Alegria) after they where forced to shelter(pakubli)from bad wheather in thier way to Romblon from Banton.That is the account of my lolo's story as i can recall.

 

I would like to share more narrations if i can still remember more, i happy to recall,share and put into accounts my father's, grandfathers story much more the story and history of simara.

 

Only those i remembered. ;-)

Randy: Alegria Corcuera Romblon -Simara

About dun ke ate winnie na tanong sa Simara's history..meron akong kung maiishare, from the story of my lolo (pablo frogosa)ang may ari ng kaunaunahang "batel"(ship like galleon) named "CARMELING" and the only ship travels in Romblon and nearby provinces like Mindoro up to Batangas using power of "WIND" layag.

 

I can still remember his story how come Simara island became Corcuera island.Spanish priar who visit Simara those time waved his hand just before he step out form the boat and said,from now on, this island will be called after my name "CORCUERA"however,just immediately after he spoke, his PRIAR RING(LIKE BISHOP ENSIGNA -RING)lose at his finger and lost into the water.Priar Corcuera was very upset.Untill now that ring was never been found.

 

Another thing is ,my lolo is a friend of "tang matin" a famous local faith healer.before they started voyage from Simara to Romblon , they offer white Chiken and latin prayer to unkown holder of the seashore(something like,super being at the seashore) to guide them a safe voyage and a good wind to thier destination.They strongly believe it works, because if they failed to offer and pray,thier voyage where ithier no Winds to make it good travel or very strong winds that almost to capzise the "batel".

 

And i was amazed when This Tang matin, make a ritual to revive the huge ship" NATIONAL STEEL ONE" that shipped out almost near the coconut plantation in ilijan.With all the effort exerted by "hilador" tugboat to remove the ship was unsuccesfull.even they uses 3 tugboat at the same time,the shipped never moved even an inch, however, this "tang matin" believed that the shipped is anchored by unseen creature(engkanto)and offered an ritual by dropping blood of white pig to the area.Just using 1 tugboat, the ship was just as small thing easily pulled out from where it was positioned.

 

These maybe a story that most of the Simaranhonheared, but the accounts said it happends.

 

there are many thing but..

We feel glad about what the Fadris are doing for Romblon, and for the Asi-speaking people in particular, of which we, as Simaranhons, belong!

 

Recently, we read about the idea of “Pagrumrom sa Paghinale” conceived by Lyndon F. Fadri of Banton. According to him, “History points that Simaranhons, Sibalenhons and other Asi-speaking groups originated from Banton.”

 

History is objective. Its actual occurrence is the real fact; falsity is subjective. This historical endeavor “Pagrumrom sa Paghinale” is a rare positive measure to put history of the Asi-speaking people of Romblon in its objective sense -- factual pages.

 

At present, there are conflicting data about the history of Simara in relation to Banton. “The Bantoanon community is the oldest one in the province.” ...“Banton became a pueblo or municipality in 1622.” What about the Simaranhon community? What about those who are claiming that in Simara, a pueblo was established in 1574 by Spanish conquestadors?

 

History, factual history, is appealing...! We are appealing to Simaranhon local officials to lead Simaranhons in this historical endeavor, “Pagrumrom sa Paghinale” to put in place Simara history, objectively, for this generation and those yet to come. The benefits are beyond measure!

 

There can be no substitute for what is true!

We will be forever grateful to know who we were, several generations ago!

Even prior to the Spanish period...!

 

Every day is history in the making!

Double Blessings: A Visit and A Genuine Concern!

 

The Simaranhon Famorcan sisters -- Auntie Celia, coming from Romblon on her initial tour of the US, and Auntie Nilda who is based in California, took a visit, this October 2007, to New York and, also, New Jersey. For Auntie Nilda, this was her second visit to New York after her first during the 1980s.

 

Although the schedule of both was hectic, aggravated at times by the October rain, they found precious time to visit relatives. In the Bronx, they came to visit Manang Daling Fajilago, Rey and Nida Faminiano & family. Early in the evening, both of them accompanied by Rey proceeded to Spring Valley, Rockland County at the residence of my brother Billy, where Mamay Neva also lives. It was here where Ambring and I met with them after work that Monday. Mers, Manong Billy’s wife, and Arlene, another relative, were also there pitching in stories and partaking in souvenir photo shots over merienda.

 

Since the trio arrived ahead of us for more or less half-an-hour, “kamustahan” and related stories had been going on when we came. Ambring, on his part, had no occasion meeting the Famorcan sisters before; to his surprise, after hugs and greetings, Auntie Nilda exchanged pleasant words with him pertaining to his posting on the Simara website regarding “Manunggay,” “imaw gani, pagkalasa ...nakakabuyong it Simara.” Aside from the good feeling, Ambring also interpreted this instance as a positive indication of Simaranhons visiting the site even if, at this time, he cannot find their names thereat.

 

I agree. Who knows after several visits of the site, our fellow Simaranhons would be inspired to share experience, ideas, goods, services, and the like for the greater good of Simara.

Mila: Simara/NY

Speaking of goods, Auntie Nilda, at one point in our conversation, brought up a suggestion -- a genuine concern -- her desire to send sacks of rice to those who need the most in Simara; she imparted to us her concern which she felt at home about, as she has been helping her kin in Simara. In her suggestion, she wanted to extend some help through rice distribution to our fellow Simaranhons -- the needy -- particularly during Christmas season and whenever feasible.

 

The group felt good about Auntie Nilda’s suggestion, which, of course, did not only concern us in the group that evening but also all Simaranhons in North America as she envisioned to invite them. In effect, we coined the name “Rice Assistance from North America Simaranhons” acronym “RANAS.”

 

In Simara, “RANAS” is a root word for “nakaranas, nagraranas, makakaranas, karanasan” which means experience. It is safe to say that in Simara, there are families who experienced, and still are experiencing dire need of basic necessities; this idea of Auntie Nilda is an avenue to share blessings with them in a small way, which, in effect, will deliver to the beneficiaries something good; and, to those who are willing to participate in, another experience of good feelings! Auntie Nilda is planning to make this happen this coming Christmas 2007. Auntie Celia will handle the purchasing at the National Food Authority warehouse to facilitate the process. In Simara, selection of beneficiaries on a need basis and distribution of the rice will be managed by SB members Leo Famorcan and Orly Fajarillo.

 

Those who are interested to participate in this endeavor from the West Coast and nearby areas, Nilda Famorcan-Telfezian is there, very glad, to coordinate with you; in the East Coast and nearby locations, Billy Fajiculay is the counterpart. If you encounter difficulty contacting Billy Fajiculay, just let me know; I am glad too to assist you.

 

Maki “RANAS” kita! Simaranhons elsewhere...!

isang beses pa lang akong nakauwi doon pero nakakaintindi ako ng kaunting simaranhon dahil ginagamit ng mga magulang ko ang wika. balak kong umuwi next year pag luwag ng iskedyul.

 

kaugnay nito, hihingi sana ako ng tulong para makakuha ng iba pang impormasyon tungkol sa ating isla. nag-email kami ni kuya gil (fajiculay) noong nakaraan at nakatulong ang mga binigay niyang impormasyon. sa ngayon, hihingi sana ako ng tulong sa inyo para magrefer o magbahagi ng kaalaman ukol sa ating bayan, partikular po yung mga gawaing pangkultura.

 

meron bang mga alamat, kwentong bayan tungkol sa simara (sa mga barangay at iba pang lugar dito)?

 

anu-ano pong mga ritwal ang ginagawa ng mga simaranhon kapag may mga gawain (pangingisda, pagsasaka, pangongopra, pagbubuli) pagdiriwang (naikwento sa akin yung fluvial parade pag pista)-ie, kasal,undas, pasko, bagong taon, binyag, paglilibing lamay (naikwento sa akin ng tita at mga magulang ko yung tungkol sa laro ng mga binata at dalaga pag may lamay-gamit ang panyo?

 

anu-ano pong mga pamahiin o kasabihan, kwentong kababalaghan at kahiwagaan ang nakagisnan ninyo sa ating isla?

 

baka po meron din kayong mairerefer na mga kapwa simaranhon na mahilig magkwento ukol sa nakaraan o kaya iyong mga involved sa cultural activities/ festivities na pwede akong matulungan.

 

layunin ko sa ginagawa kong pag-aaral na mailugar ang simara sa pag-aaral ng Pilipinas.

 

Lubos po akong nagpapasalamat sa tulong ninyo.

The year 2007 is obviously a busy one for politicians and their respective supporters. The elections of May 14 and October 29 are not that far apart; in Simara, glad to know, the results are in place absent of disturbing, dragging impediments.

 

Congratulations addressed to the winners are manifestations of common gesture and good feelings, at times impulsive; congratulations directed at the elected officials based on performance coming from the constituents, regardless of political affiliation, demonstrate genuine public service.

 

At this early, we feel safe to say that there are those who are thinking already about election 2010. In such case, we have friendly advice that, hopefully, may reduce, if not eliminate, funds on "vote buying" practice:

1. to visit Simara more often than usual, if you are living outside of Simara at this time;

2. to start or continue extending assistance -- goods, services -- to Simara regardless of previous election-related experiences;

3. to support and lead in supporting programs, projects of your alma mater -- elementary, high school -- which, of course, will redound to helping Simara;

4. to start preparing your platform of government, and gradually making it known to Simara on a realistic, tone down approach;

5. to learn, if you are new in this arena, from experience of others; and,

6. to...

 

On the part of those who are in elected positions this time, performance is the real parameter that will redefine campaign rhetorics.

Ambring/Mila: Simara/NY

Whenever we revisit the Simara website and see the photos of the Port of Corcuera, we are reminded of our suggestions on Simara historical issues.

 

In our view, to rename the port to PABLO FROGOSA PORT will bring great historical meaning to Simara and Simaranhons ever. Undoubtedly, Tang Amboy and his Carmeling left behind numerous stories, written not on papers but simply told and retold by Simaranhon businessmen/women, students at that time in Romblon High School, and other travelers. Some stories evoke humor; other narratives reflect real ordeal at sea. In summary, these stories are sea travel pioneering episodes which we consider historical in relation to Simara.

 

In essence, the name PABLO FROGOSA PORT will continue to tell this historical page now and generations to come.

 

In the process, we suggest that the name of the port be written by itself; the source of funding, if inclusion is inevitably necessary, should be written in separate location -- on one of the walls -- for purposes of clarity and propriety.

 

This is simply a sincere suggestion, a historical one!

As far as SIMARA's historical issues are concerned, we have done our share and, are still doing. Our efforts include, but not limited to Tanro-aw Hill for there are more...as in the case of 'cotta,' naming of streets, plaza, government buildings, pier, etc., to honor our leaders, pioneers, and to perpetuate their legacy/contributions to Simaranhon society, and beyond.

 

We have forwarded communication to SIMARA -- letters, e-mails, write-ups (A Bridge We Need!, Monument In The Making, Speaking of Heroes (Simaranhons), 'SAULI KITA,'and more, with related suggestions (MUNGKAHI) and draft resolutions, even during the incumbency of Dodong Fojas as Municipal Mayor. Our contact person then was SB Rose Fabriquel; however, due to 'partisan politics' nothing historic happened (!?!).

 

This time, we repeated our efforts addressed to Municipal Mayor Eddie Mazo, Vice-Mayor Dodong Fojas, Sangguniang Bayan members, history teachers, and other Simaranhons including descendants of our leaders and pioneers. Our contact persons this time are SB members Orly Fajarillo and Ronald Falogme; we also mentioned the same to Engr. Darlene Falceso, among others.

 

Fellow Simaranhons, let us help in whatever genuine capacity to come up with an authentic SIMARA history, not only for us today but also for the generations after us!

 

Everyday is history in the making!

Ambring/Mila: Simara/NY

We remember Jay Fajarillo's photo re the Port of Corcuera JAPAN. At first glance, we thought it was Port of Corcuera in JAPAN. It is, in fact, Port of Corcuera in SIMARA. Why the word JAPAN is so big? Passengers on board a passing ship could probably read it, or even if one is in Calatrava, figuratively speaking.

 

Was this sign/billing a prerequisite for the project? If not, why that big? Why advertise the name JAPAN in such gigantic letters? In our view, any project for SIMARA from the Japanese government should be construed as part of a gesture to compensate the emotional, physical, mental, spiritual anguish and the like suffered by Simaranhons during the Japanese occupation of our island in the 1940s.

 

What about a World War II Memorial in Tanro-aw Hill, Barangay San Vicente, with letterings appropriate for the dead, the living and authentic history?

 

October 24, 1944 is a historic day; March 1945 is a historic month; everyday is history in the making; hope, our local officials and constituents could materialize a historical marker in Tanro-aw Hill for the sake of history.

 

We were not around yet 62, 63 years ago;

history helps us to be alive in that era,

and appreciate its significance...!

Kamusta sa mga Simaranhons. Malapit na ang anniversary ng "Battle of Sibuyan Sea". Itong historic na labanan noong Oct. 24, 1944 between Japanese naval units at mga US airplanes, ay nagsimula diyan sa ating karagatan sa pagitan ng Sibali at Simara, at 10:26 ng umaga. Maraming mga older relatives natin ang naka-witness nitong bombahan noon.

 

Diyan sa Simara mismo, sa Tanruaw, ang labanan ng mga sundalong Hapones at Amerikano ay nangyari noong March 12-20, 1945. Dapat mag-kampanya at mag-lobby tayo sa ating local/provincial govt na magkaroon ng War Memorial diyan sa tuktok ng Tanruaw para magkaroon ng isang tourist attraction sa Simara. Puwedeng humingi ng funds and aid ang ating local govt sa American and Japanese embassies para ipagawa itong War Memorial monument. Kung matutuloy ito, at sana nga ay ma-realize itong tourist attraction, ay magpapa-design tayo nitong monument sa mga aspiring Simaranhon artists. Kung naalala ninyo, kapag nasa tuktok kayo ng Tanruaw hill, kitang-kita ang palibot na karagatan mula sa Palawan sea at Tablas strait from the south, hanggang Sibuyan Sea sa bandang North and NorthEast, paikot sa bandang Sibuyan at Romblon, towards San Bernardino strait in Samar. Ito ang dinaan ng mga Japanese navy ships nang inatake sila ng American planes at napalubog ang isa sa pinakamalaking battleships, Musashi, north/northeast of Brgy. Alegria.

 

Please call your relatives sa Simara na suportahan itong campaign to erect a War monument on top of Tanruaw Hill. Thank you.

"Through Our Lens and Senses"- this just- featured narrative is a refreshing photo-journalistic article of the new Simara. And reading it from thousands of miles away (Staten Island in New York City to be exact), brings to me the feeling of being in Simara also. My thoughts begin to re-live the past; at the same time, I reap the benefit of being entertained by the latest news and pictures of relatives and old friends from home. My Simara stays forever with me! Additional pictures and stories like this one, keep me home away from home.

 

I hope many more Simaranhons can share their own stories and pictures thru this portal. This website is for you and your friends!

Just want to congratulate a Simaranhon, Dr. Minnie Festin-Novato, an awardee of the 2007 Twenty Outstanding Filipinos Abroad. Dr. Minnie now lives in Boston. I remember Minnie and her brothers Nestor and the late Arthur Festin. During my childhood years, they used to come to Simara to spend the summer vacation with their relatives. (Please read the article she posted in this website.) Minnie is the grand-daughter of Mrs. Feliza Yap-Perez (remember Nang Pising?) I believe the Perez family still have their big house standing close to the municipal building.

 

We are proud and honored to have Dr. Minnie Festin get this award.

The Frueldas: Simara/NY

Congratulations to Dr. Herminia Perez Festin-Navato, one of the 2007 Twenty Outstanding Filipinos Abroad (TOFA) awardees. Visit www.filamimage.com for more info on this regard.

 

We first read about Minnie, when she posted on this website her “Memories of Simara.” We have read also about her gestures of support for Simara like when calamities occurred, on church renovation, and more.

 

While her memories of Simara date back more than half-a-century ago as of this posting, the meaning remains current for there are always good things to look back to in Simara -- people, land, sea, and beyond -- indelible part of life! Plus the fact that Simara has improved a lot since then.

 

To have a sort of comparison, we invite you to read a narrative recently posted on this website titled “Through Our Lens and Senses!,” with some news and photos about Simara put together just few months ago.

 

Evidently, the later is not complete picture of what Simara is today also, for which reason we invite/request those Simaranhons who are going to Simara this coming town fiesta to take pictures about activities, and more of Simara, and gather more news; then, kindly share the same with so many by posting on this website c/o Joey Fajilago.

 

Hope, Minnie’s stated hopes, “ I hope I could go back to Simara someday,” “ I hope I could...”, come true.

 

Again, congratulations!

 

Happy Fiesta To All!

Historical Awareness!

 

In our culture, I know that there are only twelve months in a year. I do not know of any 13th month or more, although I know of what the government and other agencies call 13th month pay. I do not know who coined this term, but I do know that regardless of what month they are referring to, the pay is what counts -- happi-ness!

 

Every month is important. To some, some months are significant; to others, other months are historic!

 

For Simara and Simaranhons, I consider the month of March as historic in view of the event in March of 1945, World War II, that liberated Simara and our people from the Japanese -- Battle of Simara!

 

At this time of year, the Reflections in the article “A Coin In The Sand” by Gilbert Fajiculay posted on this website deserves more than few minutes of...if we are aware of this historic event.

 

On the same token, if we are cognizant of its significance for Simara and for Simaranhons, the article “Monument In The Making” on this website too is a continuing encouragement to our government -- government of the Simaranhons, by the Simaranhons, and for the Simaranhons--to honor those who gave their lives for our sake!

 

In my opinion, the month of March is appropriate for the historic recognition as Simara Liberation Month! What do you think?

Hello to Jereme Falcatan. I watched your clips in YouTube, they're nice. If you really want to showcase Simara in video, I encourage you to do it. Kunan mo ang natural beauty nitong ating isla, the people, our culture. Most of all, you might also want to re-trace a famous naval battle, "The Battle of Sibuyan Sea", that started with aerial engagements along Tablas Straits (between Mindoro/Sibale and Simara seas) all the way to north/northeast of Simara and towards Banton then to Sibuyan Sea. Another area that could be featured is the Battle at Tanruaw Hill. These two battles are all recorded in US military history. Your clips on these would video-connect our very own island to the world.

The Frueldas: Simara/NY

We visit Congressman Firmalo's website sometimes, feeling good to read anything new concerning Simara. In his recent State of the District Report, the portion pertaining to the Outstanding Romblomanons catches our attention as a normal reaction... one of the awardees is familiar to us -- Atty. Bernie G. Fondevilla (San Andres), Executive Director, National Agriculture and Fishery Council (NAFC), Department of Agriculture. We are glad and proud to see his name because we consider him Simaranhon too.

 

Simara is an agricultural municipality. As an island, it has also resources on fishery. Just few minutes earlier, we look at the underwater shots in Alegria, Ilijan, and Mangansag, now posted on the Simara website. These pictures are a 'must see' for Simaranhons -- 'young and old' -- not only because they are beautiful, but more so -- for what they represent are precious, wonderful gifts of Nature to us! WE must be grateful as to conserve, develop/improve, protect, and use these resources rationally for the benefits of Simaranhons today and forever.

 

Bernie, congratulations for everything that your Office can deliver for the well-being of Filipino farmers and fishermen. Some of our kasimanwas are farmers and fishermen too.

 

Joyous Christmas and Peaceful New Year to all kasimanwas!

Simaranhons: Battle of Sibuyan Sea - October 24, 1944

We congratulate the people of Alcantara, Romblon on the historical event commemorating the historic Battle of Sibuyan Sea, mentioned in an e-mail as the first occasion, 62 years after the event took place!

 

As Simaranhons, we are proud that it finally happened. Part of this naval battle took place in the vicinity of the islands of Sibale, Banton, and Simara, based on old-time stories and some write-ups. We wish to read details from a history book. In view of the proximity to where the action was, it should have been equally or even more meaningful had any of these three islands initiated a commemoration on this regard many years earlier.

 

We are not historians, but we are interested in history. For us, one great battle is the fierce fighting that took place in Tanro-aw Hill, Barangay San Vicente in Simara Island during World War II. This is so because it resulted to the liberation of Simara Island from the Japanese in March 1945. After that, the Simaranhons who evacuated to Banton, to Tablas, and to other places for safety were able to come home.

 

More than a year ago, a write-up was posted on the Simara website titled “Monument In The Making”, the primary purpose of which is to advocate for a World War II memorial on this battleground as a fitting remembrance to those who dedicated their lives in said battle and for other purposes. On the same website, an article titled “A Coin In The Sand” included details about the battle in Tanro-aw Hill. Every life is important, whether the battle is big or small, great or greatest. To Simara Island and to Simaranhons, this battle in Tanro-aw Hill is historic and deserves a historical landmark.

 

The commemoration effort on the Battle of Sibuyan Sea in Alcantara is a blessing -- a historical awareness!

 

May the government agencies, the Romblon Cultural Heritage Association, Inc. (ROCHAI), and other entities concerned in matters of this nature extend assistance to Simara Island towards the successful realization of the Tanro-aw Hill historical landmark. Hopefully, the United States of America and Japan can help!

 

In relation to the Battle of Sibuyan Sea, the islands of Sibale and Banton are also fitting venues of such commemoration and historical memorial.

 

Thank you and God bless!

Exciting News!

 

One of the e-mails we receive lately confirms previous information that wireless internet access is now feasible in Simara. This being the case, it is logical to think and safe to say that this technology is also feasible in our alma mater. Are you excited, fellow alumni?! With our excitement is, of course, the question -- how to make it happen?

 

Obviously, financial requirement is a twin of technical feasibility. With genuine cooperation and solid unity from all alumni, these financial requirement and technical feasibility can be achieved with certainty. Internet access is definitely a significant chapter in our alma mater’s history; having one in the library will reflect, perhaps, one vital component of the kind of library Danilo M. ‘Jed’ Fabiala, Jr. has been dreaming of. With proper use, the beneficial fruits are there to avail of, with significance that will outlive all of us; therefore, it is, in essence, a communal legacy.

 

Positive response through positive action by our alumni is one way to reach this goal relating to internet access. Our campaign for alumni directory is also a vehicle designed to facilitate reaching this goal and many more.

 

By the time our alma mater celebrates her 50th anniversary (1960 - 2010), our alumni directory should have been in place with every graduate’s genuine effort; therefore, communication from Simara to anyone, anywhere and vice versa will be just at the finger tips with the help of a “mouse”.

 

Are you excited?

 

If you have not done yet, kindly fill-up the alumni directory form, and send it to our alma mater C/o Principal Melchor “Ontoy” M. Famorcan.

 

Regards to our fellow alumni of Corcuera Academy, now Corcuera National High School!

SINO: PAG-ASA Anniversary!

 

On August 24, 2004, SINO: PAG-ASA, which stands for Simara Island Networking Optimism: Presence Around the Globe Associating Simaranhons Anywhere, is conceived. The coverage of this concept is global, the target audience is as defined in “Who is a Simaranhon?” at the beginning of the article itself. No Simaranhon is left behind; we also invite our friends, gladly.

 

Two years and one award (OASIS for ACE) later, SINO: PAG-ASA moves on full of hope and optimism that as we go forward, our ‘kasimanwa’ will come to the realization of its noble objectives -- thus sharing genuinely ... to achieve beneficial fruits numerously. It is not all about money. It is, likewise, feeling good about giving back to our island-municipality, remembering our common ancestry, keeping our ties fresh and strengthening solidarity, sharing in perpetuating Simaranhon legacy, and attaching to this concept (SINO: PAG-ASA) anything positive at every opportunity.

 

Simaranhons are in many places -- far or near, but Simara Island is, since time immemorial, there -- approximately in between Tablas and Banton Islands, in Romblon Province -- floating like jewel as seen from a distance, especially when the early morning sun shines brightly as background. While it is small in size and cannot be seen in some world maps, I can tell you with my “pair of eyeglasses” off -- it does exist.

 

God bless the beautiful and historic Simara Island! Romblon, Philippines.

Pinabasa namin kay Manang Daling itong story ni Nota Fampo Magno: ang nasabi niya ay “talagang ganyan sa atin sa Simara; naala-ala ko si Auntie Nora -- bagong dating sa Simara galing Maynila; nag-kita kami sa harap ng simbahan bago magsimula ang “mass”, kinumbida ko siya na paglabas ng simba ay sa amin mag-aalmusal.

 

Pagkatapos ng “mass”, sabi sa akin ay kinukumbida rin daw siya ni Auntie Rosing-- sabi ko, sa kanila ka na lang mananghalian; at, sa Pidape, kina Uncle Deving naman siya tumutuloy.

 

Mayroon ngang kung maari lang ay hindi na umalis ng Simara; yung iba naman ay nakapag-aasawa na sa Simara; gusto nila ang lugar at ang kaugalian ng mga tao.”

Thank you very much Nota for sharing your notable Simara experience with this site’s visitors! This is another tangible addition to numerous experiences of similar nature. The written ones are few, but those that remain unwritten are countless.

Re: Nota's Simara story

 

Very nice article Nota!!! I agree with your observations in Simara. Really, you have to personally experience this- as you did- that the Simaranhon's Sanrokan spirit lives in that beautiful paradise island. I hope that many more Simaranhons by blood-relations or affinity and their friends could visit the island and experience the charm and beauty- both of its nature and people.

 

And for those who have visited Simara lately or earlier in their travels, can you also share your stories and pictures with us. I think there are many 2nd, 3rd, or n_th generation Simaranhons who could give us personal comments/observations of their stay in Simara. I encourage them to please share those stories with us.

Kent of Cavite:

 

Your suggestion is great! We are not sure if to repair the "cotta tower" is still feasible considering the structural status of the remnants. On the positive note, what is possible is to rebuild a semblance. Yours is an idea that you can put into reality by sending letters to our Sangguniang Bayan and the Municipal Mayor. They are in the best position to initiate the realization of your suggestion. We are using the word "our" here believing that you are a Simaranhon in view of your knowledge about the "cotta." We will highly appreciate it if you and other Simaranhons can include family name when posting anything on this website so we could relate well and feel Simaranhon ancestry.

 

By the way, this is another opportunity for us to invite you and every Simaranhon you know to read the articles on the Forum section of this website. This idea is the essence of the article "SAULI KITA." We are sure you are one among so many Simaranhons who will feel good to see this idea comes true. Tourism is not the only motivation; this is historical landmark of Simara! Tanro-aw Hill is another!

While waiting for the article from Simara concerning the ten recipients of the OASIS for ACE, I feel good to mention here that this award saw its initial implementation last April during the graduation exercises of our two national high schools: the Corcuera Academy, now Corcuera National High School and the Mabini National High School. The top five graduates from each of the two high schools received cash award made possible through the cooperation and support of the early registrants to the SINO: PAG-ASA. This event marks just a scratch, so to speak, in the history of our two high schools; with genuine cooperation and support from more Simaranhons, the same will be re-mark-able.

 

SINO: PAG-ASA is in this website waiting for you gladly. Kindly read the whole article first before making your decision to register your name and commitment!

 

Thank You.

SIMARA @ 75!

 

February 3, 1931 is a date to remember in the history of our beloved hometown popularly called Simara -- officially named Municipality of Corcuera -- a beautiful island in the Province of Romblon, Philippines.

 

Seventy-five years ago, our ancestors witnessed a milestone in their political stage -- the inauguration of our island as a municipality. Naturally, some were spectators and others were real-life-actors. An event this significant, as a matter of fact and course, happened through genuine efforts in the name of public service by leaders, we, Simaranhons, owe so much from and ought to be proud of in this regard. Leaders like Manuel T. Albero, Atanacio F. Faminiano, Andres Fojas, and others. The duration of seventy-five years brings several groups of leaders shaping and reshaping our Municipal Governance. The first group was led by Atanacio F. Faminiano as Municipal President and Andres Fojas as Vice President. We are proud of this initial group not just because we are related to the President but also because of our strong belief that while our Municipal Government is new, the President is not new to this level of government being in such position twice in the Municipality of Banton. In Simara, some projects of his administration are still serving Simaranhons even today.

 

However, while achievements of our leaders vary, they all have one thing in common -- they are the leaders of our Municipal Government. Along this line, we are dictated by human nature to believe that the families of these leaders from the time of Atanacio F. Faminiano up to the present are honored by the opportunity to serve Simara, and, of course, ready to give back to Simara as a tangible manifestation of such honor.

 

In our opinion, the coming town fiesta is a fitting occasion to demonstrate our sense of appreciation to our leaders' contribution to the well-being of Simara. As to how -- the current Municipal leaders plus the genuine cooperation of the families, descendants of our leaders from 1931 onward have the special opportunity to show something worthy of remembering by Simaranhons on this historic(al) celebration.

 

For the rest of us, Simaranhons, let us be proud to extend our share, no matter how small it may seem provided you feel good doing it.

 

To our leaders, we are grateful -- Congratulations! To our kasimanwas, regards.

For us, this is good news!For you, we hope, it is, likewise!

 

Being Simaranhons and graduates of the aforesaid school, we strongly believe that our efforts in SINO: PAG-ASA, particularly those pertaining to education, will find an optimistic partner in him.

 

In this light, we are reiterating our call to all alumni of our Alma Mater to share something for the well-being of our school as in the improvement of the library and beyond.

 

This coming graduation exercises, SINO: PAG-ASA will start the OASIS for ACE in a small way with optimism that our 'kasimanwas' will share in this endeavor as we go forward.

 

With genuine cooperation, we can reach our goal--a goal each of us can take pride in being a part of.

 

Mr. Melchor M. Famorcan--Congratulations!

Magnifying Simara; Bringing Honor To Kasimanwa!

 

We received e-mails lately, indicating that the search for Outstanding Public Officials 2005 conducted by the Civil Service Commission magnified our small island of Simara and brought honor to our kasimanwa.

 

Why? Accordingly, the event punctuated last September 28 with the presentation of the Lingkod Bayan Award by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to those found outstanding, included a Simaranhon as recipient--Barangay Captain Jimmy Faderagao of San Roque.

 

On the positive note that all public officials in Simara are standing "big and tall", so to speak, in the performance of their respective duties as such, the awardee is the "giant" of them all, on this particular occasion. According to those who knew him, "he is a man with a big heart and a great mind, working in concert for the well-being of his constituents." His public service is undoubtedly meaningful, not only for its length and accompanying accomplishments, but also for the historic(al) events that took place during these years that changed, and continue to change the landscape of Philippine politics: martial law to EDSA, con-con to cha-cha, and more.

 

We are inspired to mention too that in 2002, Linda Fadriquelan, Principal of Mabini National High School, is a recipient of the Dangal ng Bayan Award.

 

With pride, we suggest to any Simaranhon who knows both of them well, to put together feature articles with photo to highlight their accomplishments, and forward the same to Joey Fajilago for posting on the Simara website. This is not only a way of congratulating them, but also as an avenue to serve as mirror for other public officials, among other positive objectives.

 

Feel happy and proud as Simaranhons to receive news information of this nature.

 

God bless Simara!

Moreover, since www.simara.com is linked to it, we can utilize this technological tool to benefit from access--on our part, to present our concerns: programs, projects and related agenda for the well-being of Simara; on his part, to re-present in the House of Representatives our concerns.

Happy birthday, www.simara.com!

 

Three years ago, the webmaster of this site announced the birth of this website dedicated to Simara Island, Romblon, Philippines. He encouraged all Simaranhons and friends to help him in the development of this site for our common well-being.

 

Inspiring to note: Words of encouragement, phrases of praise, sentences of sincere expression of pride, paragraphs of genuine feeling of belongingness, and brilliant suggestions followed coming from our kasimanwa and friends. The excitement, overwhelming; the sense of pride, overflowing.

 

While we cannot re-view our original commments/messages, we believe your excitement about the fact that we have this website about Simara is still with you; and, your feeling of pride being a Simaranhon knowing that the webmaster of this site is a Simaranhon, not necessarily a relative, still manifests in you.

 

Marching on. We encourage you all to continue marching on and keep excited about and remain proud of this website. We are just at the first few steps, so to speak. The journey is in and with us.

 

Your shares--conceptual, financial, institutional, morale, and the like--are essential factors for the success of our endeavors for the well-being of Simara and our kasimanwa with this website as a significant channel. This website means expenses too; let us utilize the same as an instrument for our common beneficial output.

 

May you have continuing fruitful years, www.simara.com!

 

God bless, Simara!

Hi everyone and all. So we have a new look of the guestbook now! I encourage Simaranhons from everywhere to just browse by and see what's new in this your website from time to time. Most of all, say hi to all your friends and relatives thru this site.

 

Asi ra, magbulig baga kita et estoryahan, maski ni-o yang. Maramong posted articles sa Forum nak nagtatao et mga ideyas para mapaunlad nato ka ato islang Simara. Please post your comments and new ideas too. I also encourage every Simaranhon (of all relations) to join SINO-PAGASA. Maski maisot yang nak hila pero maramo ra kita, ay gumagaan ka pas-anon. Ag maramo ra guihapon ka masasadyahan sa pag-abot nato sa destinasyon or expected goal.
