Astrologers, feng shui experts and die-hard believers of horoscope said that great unexpected fortune will find its way in the Year of the Red Monkey (which will officially start on Feb. 8).

2016 is a period of renewed fighting spirit, they added.

White, blue and gold are lucky colors of 2016.

And as tradition is hard to break, VRS is up with its annual “Tagna-tagna” for the 2016. Modesty aside, last year’s “tagna-tagna” was 98 percent credible! Clap! Clap! Clap!

Now, let’s take a quick look at what the notorious and the famous Boholanos have in store for them for the Year of the Monkey.

  • Finally, former beauty queen Anna Maris Igpit and her Aussie football player Thomas Taylor will march down the aisle this year.
  • The stork will pay former child actress Rebecca Lusterio/Thomas Mejiso, Karen Digal/Doxson Asoy, Chandrina Elluiska Schreurs/Abdul Wallace and Jenissa Laguda Peteros/Dave Maulas a surprise visit .

And another art exhibit for our Boholano artists, too!
  • Tableya Princess Dalareich Polot will remain loveless even she’s worth ginto!
  • dyRD’s Glee Orcullo will release a new album. It’s a sequel of “Unang Gugma” that will re-open love wounds.
  • Poet and community organizer Nestor Pestelos, Direk Maryo delos Reyes and cultural icon Lutgardo Labad will have a busy, busy good year.
  • Pinoy Aquaman Ingemar Macarine will make a world-breaking record.

And now, the blind items:

  • A former high-ranking official whose influence is highly visible will make an “important announcement” in the early months of the year.
  • The wedding of a couple who announced their engagement in 2015 will either not be pushed through or will be postponed indefinitely. The bride-to-be will cry a river of the shocking news!
  • Another big scandal will shake the political scene!
  • For the first radio program for kids and about kids will air this year.
  • Great news: Despite financial constraints, an international film festival will be held in Bohol. Perhaps, it will win accolades in international film festivals.
  • The crystal ball said that a new talent from Bohol will make name this year. He/she will give honor the province.
  • Bohol will produce more topnotchers in the field of education, nursing and engineering.
  • A young and flamboyant high-ranking official will “out” himself. You see your true colors. True colors are beautiful. Like a rainbow.
  • A young politician will find himself in a headline-hogging controversy.
  • A popular radio program will undergo a major revamp. Note: There will a new additional host.
  • A popular couple will break up but won’t say why while another couple might reconcile after letting bygones be bygones.
  • A beauty pageant will draw controversies. Take it! Take it!
  • A beauty queen will make a “controversial” announcement! Dios mio!
  • Women who are running in the May elections will have a reason to celebrate.
  • The winner for Bohol governor has letters “O” and “E,” while for the Vice-Governor, the winner has letters “O”, “I”, “L”, “E” and “N”.

Note:  I don’t claim to be 100 per cent accurate. As I said, these are all “tagna-tagna” and I could be wrong, you know. He! He! He!
