More on the Tribal Council Request

We’d like to keep this request from the Tribal Council on top of every one’s minds so that we don’t forget to help them in their project of keeping the Bago Culture alive. Please consider donating to the project if you can.

Request from the Tribal Council
Questions came up regarding specifics of the project and we posted a clarification on Tribal Council Donations. As mentioned on the clarification, the information shared did not come officially from the Tribal Council but from a very reliable source, who was requested by the council to submit the information to be published on this blog. Our inquiry into the matter prompted three (3) members of the tribe to canvass for prices and to write yet another letter of clarification which was scanned and is posted here (please click on photo to enlarge).

Our source stated the following:

“Hello,attached here is the updated price list, of the items mentioned on the TRIBAL OFFICER’S REQUEST. Three [3] officers of the organization ,went to Baguio yesterday to verify prices of the mentioned items,and they came up with this[see letter].As i write this,the vice-chieftain is at my side and checking what is being written,he also reviewed what was posted before regarding the number of gongs and the amount pledged by uncle Henry,he (the vice-chieftain)found NO MISTAKE ON THE INFORMATION FORWARDED BEFORE! However,as you can see, the actual price is very much higher than what was told them before.”

“From my own investigations and research, the price quoted in their new letter are within the price range and the going rate for such items. It is the Tribal Council’s goal to attain this amount before the Grand Re-Union in December 2008 and they are counting on us all to help in any way we can.”

    Ala Apo Conseho ti tribalbank acct. yo kano they are asking for it…Mga Sis is it possible to post here the bank acct. awan ngata ti risk na? I don’t know about it am asking.

  7. emily

    Evs, you can change your pledge anytime to any HIGHER amount. See the actual prices…they’re higher, haha.

    They will relay that message of opening an account later. I wonder if they already have an account. To open an account now, you’d need 3,000 pesos as initial deposit, I think.

    have Just curious, what are the names of the two sagunto UK groups now? And how do we know the officers of each? I’ve heard that both groups have elected their officers. I wonder if other city or country Sagunto groups have elected their officers too? Any Macau set of officers? USA other groups, depending on your locations and convenience, why not establish new groups too?

    Now that we’ve started donating to the tribal account individually and it seems that it’s really better acknowledged individually, let’s encourage others share some amount as an individual or family. What do yo think guys?


    Sigen a, agpledge kayon tapno adda met makita tayo nga pagbanagan na dagitoy nga DREAMS.

  13. emily

    I agree. If people living in the same area or close by plan to sponsor one gong, it would be faster to raise the target. I wonder who among each group would act as leader for the time being to “collect” or “pester” (hehehe. nice word isn’t it?) the neighboring barriomates? Apart from those who wish to send money indivudually, any “batches” or like-minded people could band together right? Sige Nette and Evs, nasan na yung mga ka-batch nyo? adda dan sa dita NJ ken Korea? Sinno ngata ti umununa nga makaform ti complete gong out of several members? Bot, pakontes ka kaya uli? 😉

    On Thursday they will open an account borrowing Uncle Ganet’s personal money. They’ll return himhis money as soon as they’ve received funds. So by Thurday, you could send your support funds for the project via bank transfer, (or any other means cheaper and convenient for you); anyone who’d use this service, just ask the admin here or Babot for the tribe’s account number from Thursday. Domo!

    Ayna Ems, kasla nga lugi ti feeling ko after using the available remittance service here in LA. Kalkalpas ko nag wire diay Pinas using Land Bank of Philippines’ Easy Padala, bank to bank transfer ket $30fee AND no awan ti dollar account and has to be converted to peso, the LBP exchange is WAY lower than the P47 to $1; more like P45.30 to $1. Next time ibosun ko laengen tay check ko ta isuda diay ti bahala (ikan dak laengen ti recibo no maala da), maka save ak pay ti service charge fee and only use 90cents for postage. So if anyone in the L.A. area has any idea on an easier way to remit money to Pinas, please let me know here.

    Hey now, I’m making this crazy singing energy of mine become a benefit concert bwahahaha. Visit my Ksolo webpage :

    and listen to any or all of the songs I recorded (under the spirit of ICED TEA) and then promise any amount to donate to the Tribal Council…straight to the treasurer. Can you imagine the blind people singing in Quiapo? Okay, imagine I’m one of them hehe, only they have VOICE and all I have is “KAES” bedroom voice hehe (warning !!!).

    Jeri, join me na…Chong, IM kta, @PM OK? Cno Cno na na-impersonate mo? Naku, teka, baka mabura na naman ako ni auntie kabaw…
