For those who have received their copies, or have read it from somebody's copies, we would like to know your comments, whether good or bad. We need your feedback. What did you like best in the book?

Below are the initial reviews made by our readers:

Dear Fred,

I have scanned the book and i think it is a work of art by itself. I guess I was not mistaken when I said it will be "A BOOK OF A LIFETIME !"

I'm personally very pleased to be a part of this great Memorabilia. Congratulations for a job very well done!

Regards,

Ka Noel (Mayor of Paete)

It is very informative and educational especially for the younger generations.

Once again thanks a lot.

Fred, I received the Memorabilia.

Talaga namang napakaganda and very solidly looking.
The book cover was extra beautiful too.

By just browsing at the book, I saw how the town of
Paete has evolved through time. The photos especially
the family heritage and organizations reveal the
secret that I have been wanting to know.i.e., why so
many people in this town, now I said my own, are guapo
and magaganda. I have to look at these photos from the
macro-point of view to get a good picture of the
unique heritage of the town.

Cora was also very much impressed. You are the man
Fred.

Lando Malinis (Memorabilia Webmaster)

==============================


Dear Fred,

Congratulations!!!!

I can say that the publication of Paete Memorabilla is one of the best things Paetenians from all walks of life can be proud of. It is indeed a monumental undertaking that may take many many years to be duplicated. Now the future generations of Paetenians especially those living in foreign soils will have something to look back so that they can understand fully their roots and the land of their ancestors.
More power to you and all Paetenians who made the publication of Paete Memorabilla a reality.

Ted Balasi (Editor, Pangilenians Family Heritage Journal)===================


I like it very much especially 'yong mga katagang Paete section at ang mga older photos ng mga kababayan..Outstanding work. I'm happy for you..

Rico Cadayona, Orland Park, Illinois

The Memorabilia book was thoroughly enjoyed by the Chicago crowd. Mukhang napakatibay ang gawa. They now await the actual arrival of the copies for those who subscribed.

Atty. Tony Acyatan, Lucena City

Sadyang napakaganda. Congratulations!

Gracia Ona (Coordinator, Balik San Jose 2000)

Hi, Fred and Cora,
You certainly deserve whatever papuri you
are getting now. The hours, the hard work, the
sacrifices to put the book together is indeed
an accomplishment worthy of recognition.

Sonia C. Balandra, Jersey City, N.J.

=============

I would like to report to you that Lily, Fil's widow, was very pleased
to receive their copy. We delivered it Sept 15. I too would like to
salute you for all your efforts. It was a monumental task. Of course,
as in any endeavor, there will be those who will find something to find
fault with. And what have they accomplished?
Please extend our warm regards to Cora and Andrea.

Pedro Valdellon

=============

Dear Fred and Cora,

The Paete Memorabilia arrived today. It's indeed a treasure!
Everyone should be very proud to possess it. I admired it immensely.
My! what labor of love can create! Saludo ako, dalawang kamay...

I have gone from cover to cover. I'm thankful for the little
contribution I was able to make. Salamat at ginawa mong
marapat yoong mga articles sa MQN. I am so happy to see
"The Epic of Matanglawin." And our family pictures! Thank you
very much...

Everything in the Memorabilia is excellent: Content, organization,
art work and make-up. Excellent! Excellent! Saludo!

Fred and Cora,
I received the book today. Thanks for the memories. Your time and effort are well appreciated. Napakaganda from start to the end .This will serve as a lasting treasure that every generation in my family will enjoy.

My great gratitude to Kang Norma Aseoche Acala Duy for putting all her time to publish my mother's family tree(Aseoche-Cainto Clan).My children are excited to see their great grand parents pictures. One of my kids commented that her Dada Diding looks like her mother , Dada Isa, but with Dada Tiyong's eyes. This book made them see how their ancestors look like.

My sincere thanks,
Alicia of San Diego

Hi Marina,

I already called up Dita about the book. Sorry for the delay in mailing.

By the way, I still have to mail one copy to the Northern California Chapter. Could you find out to whom I should mail it? Should it be to Penny Mangubat or Nori Vivo? I also need the address. You can e-mail me at: fredmc311@yahoo.com

What must be the reason this "historical and factual" article of the Calabig Clan purposely omitted from the Memorabilia? Who decided to include or to exclude essays/ articles ? Are prose unpopular these days and less important than those family pictures ? An article as important as the names bearing Calabig like Ex-mayor Felipe Calabig and Dolores Calabig-Aca, a well know poetess and prolific writer should have not been stepped aside. The editting took more than two years, Memorabilia 2004 became Memorabilia 2007 almost. What a shame!!

The editting took more than two years, Memorabilia 2004 became Memorabilia 2007 almost. What a shame!!


EDITOR'S RESPONSE TO CALABIG CLAN:

I was disappointed with your negative comments which I believe were hastily made. I disagree on all points. I invite you to read or re-read thoroughly the Memorabilia book, particularly the following pages and then reconsider your opinions and conclusion:

Page 3 - “Foreword”
Page 58 – “Outstanding Paetenians”
Page 86 – Ang Bayang Paete – (poem) of Dolores Calabig Aca
Page 87 - Ang Alamat ng Lanzones – (Poem) of Dolores Calabig Aca
Page 90 - Aca-Calabig - Pamilyang Angel Aca, Sr. & Dolores Calabig
Page 354 – Banda Kawayan… (Siefredo Calabig, conductor)
Page 398 – Memorabilia Story (the making of the book)

In the foreword you will see why we called it “Memorabilia.” It means “things to Remember” (from the past). Just like Memoirs, they are collection of past events. Paete Memorabilia 2004 was published in conjunction with the Balik Paete 2004. The year 2004 was just the cut-off date (from 1580-2004), and therefore it could have been published in later years and still be relevant. Other people are still writing their memoirs and still have not published them somewhere.

If the book was published (completed) in 2006, there were valid reasons behind the delay. The reasons behind the delay could be seen on page 398 – The Memorabilia Story (the making of the book). Despite limited manpower and the amount of work involved, we believe that the project was completed with satisfactory results judging from the many favorable comments from our subscribers. I still have not posted them all. I believe many of our kababayan experienced the sense of “pride” not “shame” in having this book published and completed despite the long wait.

The main objective of the Memorabilia was to feature Family Heritage, and what could be the best way to do it but by collecting precious photographs of bygone years. Pictures speak a thousand words. None of the best writers or authors can describe or capture exactly what the picture reveals at that given moment. Those families submitted their old and new pictures for present and future generations to enjoy. And those pictures are enjoyed much better with the passing of time. Prose or text just adds more flavor to the picture, just like statistics or historical notes. And those families paid for those pictures to be published along with their untold stories or family trees. More often, only the family knows about the many stories about their life. And even if they were published somewhere, usually other people forget them, but not the family involved. If the family themselves did not come forward and make an effort to have them published in this Memorabilia book, none of us would ever know or remember that those events ever happened or existed.

As shown above, the Calabig clan was very well represented in this book. The poet Dolores Calabig Aca was there along with her 2 poems, and so is her family page. Siegfredo Calabig whose Banda Kawayan mesmerized Paete with its concert was featured, and his well-known father composer Miguel Calabig was also mentioned several times, even in the Banda 69 article.

On page 58 we mentioned about Outstanding Paetenians which became my primary basis for the featured articles. I have selected a few to feature with consideration also on the availability of information. It was a difficult process and I even consulted a few people to narrow down the choices because we were exceeding the maximum 400 pages. Truly, there are many deserving outstanding Paetenians to write about, but to write something on all of them would be impossible and would require considerable amount of time and researching, and would consume volumes and volumes of pages. Where and how to get information about them, especially the older ones is another story.

As to the selected articles, I carefully chose those to give a little bit of information about Paete’s main industry – CARVING – for which our town earned the title “Carving Capital of the Philippines.” I have added the article about the waterworks because I believe it was a vital contribution to the town from the generosity of the Quesada Clan.

Having said all of the above, I hope I have enlightened the issue. I still want to hear from the rest of the Calabig Clan if they really concur with the previous comments of the Calabig writer. I also encourage other subscribers (or readers) who have not yet expressed their views about the Memorabilia to post their comments, opinions, or feedback at Usap Paete under the title “Memorabilia – What our reader’s say.” After all, this our first town and family heritage book

I close this response by quoting what I wrote in the Foreword on Page 3 of the book:

…”And as always, there might be others who would be disappointed for the things we have missed. With Paete over four hundred years of existence, and the ever changing times and divergent people, missing something is certainly bound to happen.

But let this Memorabilia book be judged NOT for what we have failed to include, but RATHER for the many good things we have painstakingly and carefully included.”…

Sincerely yours,

Fred M. Cagayat

Hi Ver,

Our Holiday greetings to you, too, Minda, Kevin, and Hillary!! Belated Happy Birthday to you and Hillary, too!!! Time really flies, imagine Hillary was just a kid when we first saw her!

It was really a shock when Ate Lily told us about Kuya Fil. The sad part also was it happened on Ate Lily's birthday. And barely a month after our last Hawaiian fundraising party.

Paminsan-minsan ay sumusulpot ako kung kailangan.

Here are the comments I received from the mailing list in support to my response to the negative comments. Thank you all for your understanding and consoling remarks:
--------------------

It is really difficult to please everybody. Open Discussion is okay and healthy. Masama lang kung may mapipikon. Dagdagan mo pa ang pasensya.

Amang Julian (Afurong)

=================
Good day! Yes, I agree with Amang Julian. You can’t really please everybody… I guess. You’ve done your part very well & I know it is hard to be an editor of that “Book of a Lifetime”…be patient and carry on! Again I would like to congratulate you for a job well done… more power & God bless.

Cynthia (Bagabaldo)

=============

Parang tampo rin ako sa write-up tungkol sa akin, hindi rin kompleto. Hindi nabanggit don and “Kamaisan” natin sa Craig noong araw. Ha ha ha! Kidding aside, one of the best book I ever read. There will be many adverse comments written, spoken or otherwise but like you said … “let this Memorabilia book be judged NOT for what we failed to include, but RATHER for the many good things we painstakingly and carefully included.”…Very well said. I am proud of you.”

Cheers!
Ka Noel (Cadayona- Mayor of Paete)
========================

I like to echo what the others have already said about this issue- you can't please everybody. I've learned that lesson in my previous moderating job at Paete.org and in the feedbacks I am getting at the Parents' Wish website (www.parentswish. com). We can only strive to please the greater majority and that has been my guiding principle everytime I am faced with a moderating decision at Paete.org.It is obvious from the positive feedbacks that you are getting from the Memorabilia that you have pleased the greater majority with this precious book. You do not really need to defend yourself from negative comments such as this one which are few and isolated. We already know the facts.Once again, congratulations and thank you for all your hard works in the Memorabilia. The wait was long but it was worth waiting.

Rey (Carolino – Webmaster)
=======================

It’s your baptism by blood. But you made an excellent and effective defense. You should have been a lawyer. Congratulations! My review is on another email.

Marie (Cagahastian Castillo-Pruden)
========================

…The amount of work, time and effort that Fred Cagayat gave to this memorabilia project is enormous and deserve no less than our gratitude, respect and praise.

Angel (De Dios)

==================

For all the long hours, difficult researches, editing, re-editing and seemingly interminable and tiring work you and those who helped to produce that fine memoirs which is the Memorabilia, I am 110% convinced that you all did a fantastic job. I say this emphatically: nobody could have done all those editing work better than you did. Albeit you did an excellent work, there will always be that 10% chance that negative comments from somewhere will surface. True after all the enormous amount of work you did, it is disappointing to see negative reactions. But don’t take them personally. You can’t make everybody happy all the time. It is after all an imperfect world. Life must go on.

Rogel (Dalagan)
=================================

Looking at the big picture, despite the alleged “shortcomings and/or flaws”, Inang Cia and I think that the final product is EXCELLENT, SUPER, SUPERB, FANTASTIC, FIRST CLASS AND LOVELY. For this reason, from our perspective, you deserve nothing but accolade and gratitude and not condemnation. Unfortunately, perfection is just a goal or ideal. It is NEVER possible to achieve. We can only strive for perfection.

One other thing. From our understanding none of you received a single penny for the long hours, effort, possible out-of-pocket expenses and personal sacrifice that you have charitably given and gone through to make this Memorabilia a resounding success.

This project was no mean task and responsibility. We salute you for having the guts to accept the challenge to tackle it. Yan ang tunay na lalaki.

Amang Tom (Altamero)

==================


I do not know who sent you the email, but for me, I’m happy that you and your staff were able to produce a Memorabilia for the People of Paete and not for our clan only.

Rossini I. Calabig (son of Fred Calabig, conductor of Banda Kawayan).
==================

...i was wondering who was that member of the Calabig clan who commented negatively about your memorabilia. maybe it's just his/her personal opinion and it doesn’t necessarily represent the opinion of the whole calabig clan. for us the majority, you did a great job at talagang hindi mo mapi-please ang lahat ng tao. concentrate on the positive feedbacks and disregard the negative...nag iisa lang naman yata siya sa kanyang opinion.

I just realized that the cover of the book has two words and one number. To my delight and satisfaction, I am very happy to know that 50% of the words is Latin. Wink It is a simple word that speaks volumes about the town, its people and the people responsible for its publication. Liber scriptus proferetur in quo quasi totum continetur! Opus vere magnum et memorabile!

The Latin is a paraphrase from a line in the "Dies Irae."

"A work great and lasting to remember; a book so written wherein is brought out all that almost is worth there is ... (of Paete.)"

Yes you may order copy/copies of the Memorabilia. See my response above to Tony Cagayat (pen name Buyuko) for details on how to order and pay for the order.

Thanks.

Kang Fred,

Magandang araw po! Pagpasensyahan mo na po kung hihinigin ko ang iyong email address. Sa akin po kaseng pagmamadali na makabalik sa barko kaagad, nakalimutan ko po ilakip yung aking address. Bali po anu! Pasensya na po.. Laughing
