Our Island Featured in Cebu Pacific Mag

This Islander's hometown, the island of Capul in Northern Samar, was among the towns featured the recent issue of Smile, Cebu Pacific's in-flight magazine.

The writer said, "curious residents welcome you once you arrive on the shores of this island municipality. They speak Inabaknon, which is one of the Philippines’ remote and rare dialects.

Just an hour’s ride from the town of Allen is Capul Island, once a favorite guidepost for seafarers. During the Spanish era, galleons stopped over here en route to Manila, their final destination. Ships voyaging to Acapulco, Mexico anchored in Capul (which is short for Acapulco) before proceeding on the last leg of their journey back."

And should you wish to visit the place, it's fiesta is on July 30 to 31. Tara!

Tara! I'm a seafarer too, only if you shoulder my fare :D Ala ba Bisaya sa place nyo, Attorney? Sorry kung dumb question, pero curious lang. Have never been to northern Samar :(

Would you believe, I actually know somebody in Capul??? He worked in our office years ago and what I remember best was his pasalubong of lato which he brought all the way from your island--it was the best and freshest lato I have ever tasted. :)

Congratulations! Pardon my ignorance for I must admit that this is the first time I'm hearing of your island. Must be a very beautiful place for it to earn a spot on Cebu Pacific's in-flight magazine.

a few words were said about your island but they were enough to have my interest piqued =] that i'm a fan of lighthouses and you have a lighthouse in your island is a big plus =]

so is the "tara" a real invitation? hehe
