My Trip to Bohol Island

By: Sindy

(Excerpt from CELISTIAL June - July 2009 issue)

My favorite trip is coming.Saturday morning, my friends and I assembled in the Celi’s lobby at 8:30 A.M. We waited for the bus that will take us to the pier. Everyone was expecting this trip.After two hours on the boat voyage, we arrived in Bohol Island smoothly. Even though it was raining, we still felt happy and excited.

What is Your Most Unforgettable Experience?

If you’re from CELI, go for about five minutes by car, you can find Mactan Shrine. Mactan Shrine is the place where Lapu-lapu, who was the chief of Cebu Island before, fought with Spanish military unit. A leader of that unit was Magellan who was killed by Lapu-lapu. After that, Philippines built the shrine to praise in honor of him. Last Friday my friends and I decided to go Mactan Shrine. Before we went there, we heard about it from many people. They always appreciate the beauty of the place and its heroic history.

Bisoypinoy, true and through

This is a balayan that I will readily feel at home.

my blogs

Wala uroy koy maingon... imbitahan na lang ta mo nga mubisita sa akong mga they are:

Makalipay ug makalingaw

Wala man unta koy plano nga moapil na sab og lain pang network! Pwerteng daghana na intawon ang akong giapilan! Makalipong na gayud unta, halos dili na man gani nako mabisita ang ubang social networks!

Pero kini, dili ko gyud palabyon. Nakatawa uroy ko sa KUTAYDAPIT! Nakalad-ok gayud ako og laway, dayong talidhay! Aray...! Okey!

Sa tinuod lang, dugay na ko nagdamgo, naghandom ug nagplano-plano nga maghimo og blog nga binisaya! Apan lisud mangitag panahon. Busa kay naa na man kini, nganong dili na lang moapil! Sulayan ta lang gud pero lisud mosaad nga regular ang pagsulat dire.

I would like to learn the language

Dear All

I come from Singapore & have the privilege to travel to philippines for vacation. I would love to learn some visayan language after visiting some of the philipppine islands. How do i go about learning the basic? Is there any reference or something for me to start off with. I hope to be able to understand & answer some simple questions during a conversation or self introduction. eg. hello, thank you.

After the previous visit, would love to come back for more vacations here as philippines has alot more to offer & would like to get to know the culture, people & language etc.

Diskarchix (Diskarte sa Chicks)


Sa panahon sa katigulangan
Ang pag diskarte kinahanglang respetuhan
Ma bati ka man o ma gwapo
Uyab halangdon alang kanimo
Ang pagpamisita kinahanglan respetuan
Labi na sa ginikanan sa gipamisitaan
Na’pay sinul-otan haskang pormala
Sapatos ug hinapay gasinaw lang iyara
Naay uban harana ang tirada
Nga diin babaye pwerteng lipaya
Na’pay pagkanta nga kinasingkasing
Nga kon diin kasingkasing sa babaye mosagting
Diskarchix, sa unang panahon
Diskarchix, hasta sad karon
Diskarchix, sa umaabot
Diskarchix, bahalag uyamot
Nasay uban magpatorpetorpe


Mapasalamaton ako nga aduna pa diay mga tawo nga sama sa tigdumala niining maong kutaydapit (website) nga nagpadayon sa mga kalihokan alang sa pagpalambo sa pinulonga'ng binisaya. Managsama kita bai kay damgo ko usab nga mapadayon ang paglambo sa atong kultura nga inanay ng gikutkot sa panahon tungod ra usab sa atong pagpabaya ug pagtugot nga kini mahulipan sa langyaw.

Help wanted digitizing Wolff's Cebuano dictionary

For many years, I've been running a small Philippine dictionary on my website Although this is used quite often, it is fairly limited, and of a rather low quality.

Recently, I've added a large dictionary for Hiligaynon on the site, available This is nothing less than the complete text of Kaufmann's 1934 Visayan-English dictionary, which, although it shows its age, is still very useful, and includes sample sentences for most Hiligaynon words. Both a searchable interface and a downloadable PDF file are available.
