The Blog

This blog is about my Philippine hometown of Baclayon, Bohol.

Baclayon is located east of Tagbilaran City. Both sides of my father's family originated from this coastal town; specifically, from Santa Cruz, the first barangay of the town after you leave Tagbilaran.

I created this blog due in part to the first ever clan reunion of my father's paternal family last May 2010. I was hoping to fill in this blog with information on Baclayon for the benefit of my relatives especially the younger generation.

A lot of my relatives now live in different parts of the Philippines and abroad. Many also have not yet set foot on this town and know little about it.

I will post on a lot of things about my hometown. Its history, culture, tourism and my personal reminiscences are only some of the topics I will be writing about.

Blogposts may be original or borrowed. I have written about Baclayon in my other blog, Bohol On My Mind (http://boholonmymind.blogspot.com/). I will repost them on this blog.

I will also borrow articles and blogposts written by other people and repost it here with due recognition. I will borrow the concept of Bohol Blog (http://boholblog.blogspot.com/) in posting Baclayon rave posts especially by tourists who have visited Baclayon.

In the future, I see this blog as a community blog about Baclayon. For now, it is still an individual project.

The Author

I am an accidental immigrant, first arriving in the UK in 2002 as an OFW dependent.

I am a true Filipino, in the geographical sense having been born in Mindanao from a father and mother who are from Visayas and Luzon, respectively.

Bohol is my home province in the Philippines. Equally, too, I considered Cebu City as my 'other' home having spent a lot of years there after finishing high school.

In my Philippine life, I have been a volunteer, researcher, office clerk, pearl farm officer, medical representative and a high school teacher.
