|Friendship never ends...with Jessie Boy Mapa and Emily Torreja (Melai or Red Apple) during my radio days @ Bombo DZDR (now DZNG Naga) and DZLW/DWWL stints for my "Dear Kuya Ino Radio Show"|

Flashback: I've been here a decade ago...part of my past have been imprinted here...being young and adventurous...trying to fathom the depth of Bongalon bay. My closest friend/radio fan Emily"Melai" or Red Apple (R.A.) Torreja invited me and other friend-listeners to visit her domicile.
The camaraderie was quite overwhelming. I ventured adjacent places along with them, Sibaguan, Odiongan, Patitinan and of course, Atulayan island. Much more the adjacent barangays of Joroan and Mayong of Tiwi.
That was the late 1990s of my life, being part of my radio life and listeners' active involvement on my show.
Now...I'm back, being invited as host of the 1st ever Maskuladong Magayon.

And there's more..I got to rekindle old memories of friendship and swam at the shore of Bongalon.
|Locals are careful trekking the storm-ravaged dockyard but still frolick on it everyday for baiting groupers (herring, etc,) that are abundant underneath the waters.|
