About Talbuks Cafe

Welcome to Talbuks Cafe - a virtual hang-out where fellow “taga-Talakag”, friends and visitors of Talakag can stop by anytime, from wherever you may be and catch up with some online news/information about Talakag, Bukidnon. I hope to keep this site updated on a regular basis so that you can check out what’s happening in this beautiful town and its people.

The place has changed so much since I left in the 1980s. Now I am looking forward to rediscovering it once again and writing about what it’s like to be living here nowadays. After 25 years of living abroad, I have returned for good and will be sharing my thoughts and experiences about “Life in Talakag Today” through a collection of news, events, photos and stories from a balikbayan's viewpoint.

So that’s most likely what you’ll find in here. Thank you for dropping by and till next time...

    What a great, informative site you have! Great work po =) My personal blog, www.BukidnonOnline.com, has also been gaining ground.
