Welcome to our newly added TBTK Networks here at Blogspot. Although we have already an official site at TBTK.ORG, it is our wish to explore some added venues to keep in touch with all the Boholanos worldwide and to expand our exposure in the WWW as modern technology continues to lend itself to an even more expansive means of communication with the availability of all these options right in front of us: quite a few popular names favored by many and others prefered by particular networking groups: that we can't leave anything anymore to luck, fate or chance of being found, read or googled... but to take a more proactive role in being more visible to and reachable by all whom we wish to have network with... and that is you, my dear friend, my dear Boholano and all the significant people around you.


As the fourth official gathering of our fellow Boholanos con Paisanos from all over the world is nearing its designated time come July 14-26, 2009, I would like to take this opportuned moment to extend to ALL OF YOU the invitation to attend this once-in-a-lifetime event and see-for-yourself how good it is to be home once more to see our beloved BOHOL, your loved ones & friends, and the many developments that may have transpired during the time when we were away, but more so the thought that we are "coming home" in great numbers to create this festive mood & atmosphere and thus relive this uniquely Bol-anon penchants for "fiestas,"
"tapok-tapok," "kaon-kaon," "inum-inom" and "chika-chika" as well as join our brothers & sisters back home in their yearly remembran-
ces and reenactment of Bohol's rich cultural history of being a most-friendly-province-in-all-of-Pinoylandia that dates back to the mid-1500s. Come July 26, 2009, Bohol will celebrate this yearly festivity we call SANDUGO, highlighted by the drumbeats and colourful revelry of a dancing street-parade, the re-enactment of the Blood Compact, the highly touted Boholana beauty pageants that has come along way since its inception, and so much more. Lest you missed the many wonders Bohol is known for - now tagged as the Numero Uno tourists destination in all of the Philippines - I bid all of you to take this prospect and wonderful opportunity to... "pauli sa Bohol, pinangga tang Bohol!" (BVG)

Crowning night is finally here. A night unforgetable for quite a few. Every corner of the ballroom and every movement - all worth observing. Happy faces and smiles galore every which way you look. Flashes of cameras like the frequency of lightning on a real stormy day. Colours and intricate works of clothing designs aplenty. People meeting people. Scent not only of expensive perfumes but also of endearment from friends and long-lost acquaintances all gathered at this one moment. A certain aroma of pride and joy for making it home safe and be present on such an eventful evening. Truly a night to remember and an evening made for posterity: MRS. BOHOL INTERNATIONAL 2009 NIGHT

(August 14, 2009) - While the whole province and many of her reveling citizens were in the midst of all the fanfares of the SANDUGO celebration and TBTK's grand homecoming this past July 2009, unbeknownst to many was a core of few people com-
missioned to put together something we can all be proud of and celebrate about. For the first time, ever, in its 12-year history,
TBTK had not only come up with a new soundtrack to sing, dance and jumped for joy, but had also attracted a host of young Boholano musicians to share with us the richness of their talents as well as entertain us with a variety of their musicality Bohol has always been known for.

(TBTK 2009 Theme Song)

Words by Fr. J. Roel Lungay BMI

Music by Romeo Ceniza Mascariñas

Performed by Romeo Mascariñas & Wendel Taladua

Mastered by Roy Tutor

Panahon sa kasadya
Ania na usab
Dakong panaghudyaka
Kanato nagtawag
Kita mag tapok-tapok
Kita mag tigum-tigum.

Hala tibuok banay
Pangandam na kamo
Ma nanay man o tatay
Ma dodong man o inday
Kitang tanan mo byahe
Kitang tanan pauli.

Tigum Bol-anon tigum
Dili na gyod maluom
Tigum Bol-anon tigum
Dili na gyod mahilom
Mahal natong probinsya
Nagsige nag pangagda
Bol-anon tib’ok kalibutan
Sundon nato ang dalan
Pauli sa Bohol,
Pinangga tang Bohol.

Kalambo, kahiusa
Pagadamgohon ta
Yuta natong natawhan
Atong pangalagaran
Ayaw kamo kalimot
Tandaon ta siya.

Bol-anong panawagan
Kaninyo nga tanan
Bol-anon sa kalibutan
O dungga ki’ng tanan
Salamat, o Bol-anon
Magkita-kita tang tanan


Tigum Bol-anon tigum
Bol-anon tib’ok kalibutan
Bol-anon tib’ok kalibutan
Uban kamo sa panagtigum.


Tigum Bol-anon tigum!
Tigum Bol-anon tigum!
Tigum Bol-anon tigum!
