The title of the song is very artistic. It has a deep meaning which the
composer only knew what it mean.

Author Melvin Mutia Mendoza ( ago)
FYI: Allan Jayme Rabaya wrote two very beautiful films: "MARUPOK, MAPUSOK,
MAHAROT" starring Hilda Coronel, Pilar Pilapil and Chanda Romero directed
by Emmanuel H. Borlaza. You can search it here in Youtube. The other movie
is "KATAWANG ALABOK" starring Lorna Tolentino and Vic Silayan also directed
by Maning H. Borlaza.I love his stories as well as his songs. Before RICKY
LEE there was ALLAN JAYME RABAYA. I am calling the attention of the Cebu
Government to bring back this brilliant Cebuano to limelight.

Thanks a lot for the reply. I promise to find Allan sa sunod nakong
bakasyon sa Pinas. I can't imagine jamming with you again guys..reviving
good old days. Best of everything to your family.

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
of course i do remember you Melvin..i''m so happy to have been reconnected
with you here..i don't have Allan's number though..he keeps changing his
number. he had a mild stroke some years back and until now he limps, he's
not 100% well.

Author Melvin Mendoza ( ago)
Dante, I hope you can still remember me. Way back early 90's when I worked
with Madam Mayen Tan and Allan...I've been to places, meeting people..but
you and Allan have been part of me..deep rooted kaayo akong nakat-unan
ninyo.. I hope I can contact Allan. 

Author Melvin Mendoza ( ago)
I am one of those who benefited Allan Jayme Rabaya's brilliant talents. I
am very, very proud to say that he is my mentor. He is the ONLY person who
fills my heart (until now) with love and passion to music, film,
literature, arts and culture in general. Even my views about life is very
"Rabayatic"..I really, really love this man. How can i possibly contact

Author Richard Alfajora ( ago)
si alan karon maoy hulagway sa maong awit diin ang gugma sa iyang
magdadayeg mao ang iyang kadaugan. palihug suroya aron masabwag ang gugma.
dili man mi higala apan lisud na nga kon tas-on ko pa ang pagsud-ong mo
mapuslan aron hisabtan mo an mensahe ug kinabuhi 

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)

Author BLUESTAR777dotCOM ( ago)
@trigger1845 Gikan pa gyud ko sa channel ni dongmarit. Akong gilimpiyuhan
ang akong dunggan sa atuli. Gipaminaw nako ug maayo. Gi-tandi. voice
quality, ang pag-phrasing sa lyrics. Sa akong ubos nga pag-paminaw ug
paghunahuna. Mora gyud ug dili parehas. Puede seguro 1st runner-up lang.
Pero, Ok lang kon parehas. Basig maka-ingon ka nga gi-bayran ko ni
masterdan13. Honest opinion lang gyud and akoa. Cheers... ^__^

fernando cebu..he sang this song again during the Cebu Pop Music Pearl
Anniversary this year..Please go over the rest of the comments below and
you would find Stewart wife's notes there as well.

Author Rene Cabrera ( ago)
I would like to know if anyone has the original rendition of this song. If
I'm not wrong he's name was Stewart from San Fernando Cebu, Who is one of
the winners of Cebu Pop Music in the past.

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)

of the video at cctn since it was the only tv station that covered it
live..i wasn't able to watch the entire live telecast though...i was
suppose to anchor the live telecast but I begged off so bong gimeno and dr.
grace balankig took over..

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
@jipar18 tnx...asa naman diay karon si stewart? i heard he was based in the
US. pls try UV, sa office ni Sir Dodong Gullas. 3oth yr man karon sa cebu
pop so I hope they've come up with a compilation of all the winning entries
in one album..

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
for the benefit of those who simply didn't understand, for the record, i
was not the interpreter of this song when it entered cebu pop music. it was
stuart papa. stuart was acknowledged in the earlier comments on this video.
it's down there if you check it..the vid posted here is a clip from cctn
ch. 47 musical salamt sa musika. composer allan rabaya asked me to sing it
for the tv special. i hoper that would set the record straight.

akong nahinabi si kongresista eduardo gullas kinsa maoy amahan ning maong
tinuig nga kalihokan. matud niya nga dunay siyay laraw sa pagpagawas ug usa
ka album nga langkoban sa tanang mananaug sa cebu pop sukad kini natukod
baynte nuebe na ka tuig ang nakalabay. dili lang gani mga mananaug kun dili
lakip usab ang tanang mga finalists ug mga komposisyon nga wa makapasar sa
screening board.. dako kini nga tahas apan bulawanon ang katuyuan. hinaot
pa nga matuman..

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
sa unang bahi sa cebu pop, ang kanhi vicor music corporation mihimo ug tulo
ka volume series sa tanang winning entries apan nahunong human sa ikatulong
album..alkanse kuno. tingali ang cebu arts foundation inc (cafi) kinsa maoy
haligi sa cebu pop dunay files sa tanang wiinng entres ug finalists apan
daw way nagtagad sa paghmog compilation.anugon palandungon..

Author diola andres ( ago)
masterdan hinaut na untay compilation sa mga naka daug nga songs sa cebu
metropop sukad sa una apil na ang mga runner up heard nga morag runner up
ra ni nga song sige lang classic man pud hinuon nindot pud ang sama sa usa
ka damgo, langit ug yuta, ako kini higala, kabataan ni sharon magdayao
a.k.a. vina, morales ug uban pa... i'm sure daghan dyud mopalit dili lang
sa local apil na dyud ang mga ofw nga ganahan sa binisaya ug cebuano nga
mga songs, thank you kaayo.

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
way sapayan angus

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
di ko sure kung may available cd ba sa market..the composer himself doesn't
keep a copy. if you have a video uploader, you can upload this video and
transcribe the lyrics and the chords..

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
salamat kanimo angus...

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
stewart interepreted this piece during the first cebu pop music festival
but it was allan jayme rabaya who composed it..

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
I still get to see him every now and then. He had a mild stroke but he's
relatively okay. We're supposed to produce a teleserye titled Kausa Nabasa
Ang Tubig, directed by no less than Allan himself. He offered me the lead
role. The project wasn't able to take off though.

Author radiantview ( ago)
Allan Jayme Rabaya has evolved very nicely through the years. I still
remember when he composed the songs that we sang at the UP Cebu musical,
"Up the Down Staircase" in 1974 which featured a mixed cast of high school,
college, and Masters students. Allan, if you read this, I played Bea (and
what the heck! I was able to sing and dance at the same time). Thank you
for the memories! More power to you! Lorna

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
usa ni sa mga first, alangin ko mokanta ani kay murag di
mobagay sa akong tingog..pero wa ko kabalibad sa composer..

Author Madison Akehno ( ago)
i really love the song... mao gyud ni ang kantahon sa friend sa akong brod,
wa gyuy sipyat kada adto niya sa amoa.

Author Dante Luzon ( ago)
