Marky Cielo, Igorot

Halfway across Halsema, I learned what I have been looking for — Marky’s middle name. I was told it’s ‘Cadaweng.’ I’m not sure if it’s true but it basically confirms that Marc Anthony is an Igorot. Her mom is one. He grew up in Butuan but is now in Baguio. I think he is of Bauko descent.

I tried asking Marky himself via StarStruck TXT, but he never replied. Anyway, that facility is not that reliable for queries such as these and comments posted on the StarStruck blog were more helpful.

I’m back in Baguio with a Sagada windburn. And talking about home, someone with a family name of Cadaweng used to live one house away from us. I’m sure it’s not Marky’s family, but you get the idea of how close the connection can get once one tries to do some legwork around here.

So far, Marky’s still there and it seems he will continue to be there at least for a month more. Because of that, I wouldn’t mind the windburn. And I’m a southpaw, too, as if anybody cares. LOL

My next question would be: Where did he last enroll at? We’re not schoolmates because the last someone made it to the regionals of the other artista reality show, they made the whole school know by posting the info on the university bulletin board and leaflet.

Marky is a 17-year old Architecture student of SLU, Baguio. Most likely he is on leave of absense now so he could be in Manila to try out his luck at StarStruck.

  1. Ya, marky cielo is Mark Angelo (Ban-eg) Cadaweng Cielo from Besao, Bauko and Sabangan Descendant. He is born in Butuan City where her mom worked. He finished elementary there and went to Mt. Province where he finished his highschool. He was last enrolled at Saint Louis University before the starstruck.

  2. OK Ban-eg and Cadaweng would be Bauko so most likely Cielo is Sabangan? In tonight’s episode, Marky went to his grandmother’s place (Sinto, Bauko — near the Benguet border).

    His group must have visited the place the same time I went home over the weekend.

    Nagtataka lang ako at walang conratulatory remark ang SLU sa kanya esp. since kasama pa siya sa dance/theater group.

  3. there’s no question about marky being igorot… ok nga dahil it made him unique s ss3 di ba. marky seems very active din sa studies nya. ksama pa nga sya sa dance/theater group di ba? muka rin syang matalino ha…

    so marky, keep it up…. stay humble at ipagmalaki mo kung sino ka.. just prove to them n you have talents and you will make it to top4.

    gud luck and god bless!

  4. Da kami ay wadas na id cainta! ay VOTE ka nmin BAN-EG! tat no mangabak ka is nan reality tv show! ay ammum si alapum ay Pidlito Cadaweng? wada is na id cainta! ay minsursupurta kin sik ah. nan igorot village valley golf cainta rizal! no wada kuma nan time mo umali a di isna tat pasyaslem da kami isna! mahal na mahal ka namin! ulay sya sa mangabak kuma kaung duwa ni arci munoz! GUD LUCK!!!!!! (pasensya sa hindi makakaintindi nito mga igorot lng ang makakaintindi nito!) special thanks to EGIE! by TOROGI BOYZ of CAINTA RIZAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. so what if marky’s an igorot then? what’s the big deal? that’s the problem among us filipinos kc, it never came among us to possess the attitude of appreciating what is unique and exotic..does it mean looks are the only basis in judging and weighing things up?what if u’ve got the looks but nuthin’ to show more than that?well, MARKY HAS IT ALL BALANCED, and the most important thing above all is thAT MARKY HAS THE POSITIVE ATTITUDE NA WALA SA IBA!~~WE’LL SUPPORT YOU ALL THE MARKY!`

  6. MARKY ANDITO LANG KAMI FAMILY MO~ WE’LL SUPPORT YOU ALL THE WAY!—->>alhough we’ve smelled somebody is already trying to pull you down na and trying to vote you out (alam mo na kung sino ‘yun) that only means na you’re a BIG THREAT to them, so keep it up and always remain humble…WE know kaya mo ‘yan..

  7. The big deal about Marky being an Igorot is that I am an Igorot, too. But if you are concerned with what Bugz said, the big deal about being an Igorot is that you have to deal with a lot of misconceptions that you have to prove wrong.

    This is one way of trying to show them that they are mistaken.

  8. getting into the showbiz world isn’t always easy, i beleive majority would basically agree to that…mestizas, fil-am people, chinese filipinos had their own time to shine out in showbiz career…i stand for what is needed to be accepted and will soon be loved by the filipino people, isn’t it time among other filipino races to shine?showing the “unseen” part of our culture, and taking a glimpse on what they can show to the mass and with this, i think it’s time to bring back our no-longer-preserved real filipino culture to the public and appreciate what our igorot brothers has to show, proving that not only looks really matters, telling evryone a filipino-blooded individual has something to show more than looks could tell…

  9. let’s help MARKY stay on starstruck up to the last countdown of the finalists…MERRY X’MAS to all….

  10. …..Haler yaku Mark!!! wow, all of us never expected this ya know…. were all here beside you…. every Ban-eg is jumping in excitement as one by one, we count your every success/////…. hope you never change…-;-

  11. hi!yeah..what could have been the big deal with Marcky being an Igorot???
    ei you guys,i know i can say nohing too much for it coz i am not an igorot…but i never learn to discriminate races and even tribes which never been bad for myself and the community….i like MARCKY CIELO being proud of who he is unlike others who tried being others to extent of pretending…

    i am not an igorot but same as we lived in Pangasinan and Nueve Vizcaya where both my parents grew up and became those of the ilocanos…i really spend time for voting to marcky and i hope you do appreciate suche effort..

    being able to watch the what bugz have to say to you,well i guess he’s being too inconsiderate…is he too good?…is he doing most perfect all the time?…i heard you said that bugz is one of who you considered friends in starstruck but i guess you shouldn”t…although it is awkward,why should he said that you should be eliminated just becoz UR NOT LIKE THEM AND UR DIFFERENT,COZ UR AN IGOROT…bakit siya ba hindi bisaya…he can’t transform nga his voice tone and accent right..

    siguro masyado na akong galit but ciempre nakakainis kasi…

    I WISH YOU YOUR SUCCESS AND HOPE YOU HAVE THAT STAYING POWER…YOU ARE MY BET FOR ONE OF THE FINAL FOUR AND HOPEFULLY BE ONE OF THE ULTIMATE SURVIVORS AND HOPEFULLY WITH GOD’S GRACE…YOU BECOME THE SOLE ULTIMATE SURVIVOR.

  12. i watched their dance test with douglas, and for me, marky should’ve been the best dancer. ang galing nya, even better pa pala kapag street dancing. ‘yung tambling n’ya really made the igorots so proud, at ‘di lang mga kababayan n’ya, but his fans nationwide. sana manalo s’ya as the ultimate survivor. at first akala ko ‘di magiging ok ang starstruck this year, coz i thought no one’s gonna beat the first season. pero wala e, lakas talaga ng arrive kapag magaling magsayaw! well, we know here in san pablo laguna that marky’s going to shine not just in dancing. s’ya nga ang pinakatalented sa group e, more so when compared sa ibang guys sa contest. MARKY CIELO RULES!!!

  13. Tingin ko dyang kay Bugz Daigo, totally insecured yan kay MARKY CIELO kasi nga threat si Marky sa lahat ng lalaki, even kay Vivo! Si Bugz ang least popular sa mga male survivors!

    And boy, Bugz gave away his ignorance when he commented against marky being an Igorot! The kid just lack the sense of respect for this country’s minority group!

    As for MARKY, we’re behind you! I appreciate you’re being unique among the male survivors, you’re being an Igorot is what endears you to us. Igorot though you are, you’re also talented, lots of talents.

    Maraming nagmamhal sa iyo Marky! Not just your family, not just the whole of Igorot tribe, but those city fans your presence alone have touched and I for one is among them.

    Love you kid! Keep it up! You have our prayers and support with you! Do your best but keep your both feet on the ground.

    Go Marky!

  16. MARKY CIELO is very talented. He is a natural thespian. Although the Director incharge of their mini shows was quick to notice that Marky is a good actor, the SST Council and other assigned judges did not give him a recognition for acting. Moreover, when it was very obvious that he is the best dancer (even much better than Mark Herras), the hosts and the council seem to downplay the fact. As a singer, he also has potential.

    But her best asset is his looks. He is very handsome with that ethnic look which made him sexy, his complexion makes him attractive for international patronage and his cheerful eyes lift the spirit.

  17. Hello there… a whila ago I was searching for news about what Bugz Dygo said about Marky, and since I couldnt find it I tried this site… and its very helpful… can I know exactly what Bugz said about Marky??…. I’m really really curious cause I didn’t watch that episode… and I’m also really curios because I’m a FULL BLOODED IGOROT… (half kankanaey and half ibaloi)…

    Anyway… back to the topic… I really hope and pray that Marky will win SS3 bcoz not only will everybody be happy, but it will also changed the concepts of ALL PEOPLE of what Igorots can so and ACHIEVE… thank you…

    God Bless you all specially MARKY… Good Luck sa Career!!

  18. helo anyone … I’m just curious about the (ban-eg)your talking about… kasi may kakilala po ako sa besao … is der any connection,…??

  19. “Dream, Believe, Survive Marky!” Show to the whole world that we Igorots have also the potentials and talents to survive in Startstuck. Never ever forget where you came from and I’m very thankful that you are very proud to say that you are an Igorot…keep it up. Godbless u always!

  20. dont forget to vote vote vote!!..
    i think ss3 website is having their maintenance so idaan natin sa
    text votes…. nwei GO MArky! more power and god bless

  21. All the final nine voted for Marky to be the ultimate survivor. Marky voted for Bugz( who earlier discrminated Marky for being Igorot). Very obvious na talaga si Marky ang best!

    Please remain humble as you are Marky. Sana huwag lalaki ang ulo mo.

    I’ve seen Marky’s video. Magaling talaga siyang kumanta. Maganda ang boses at may feelings talaga. Pero kinilig ako. Napaka-macho kasi niya. Huwag sana siyang gawing sexy star dahil napakarami naman niyang talent.

  22. hoy bugz……GAGO K AH…….mas guwapo nmn marky kesa s inyong lhat!!!!!!!!!!GAGO!!!PANGIT!!!!Markie…..go for it…kung kinakailangan..suntukin mo yng bugs n yn…….GO GO GO!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Did you see what happened last night? Lahat ng co-competitors ni Marky, siya ang ibinoto for the ultimate sole survivor! Gulat na gulat si Marky. Hindi niya expect na LAHAT ng mga kasama niya, gusto siya. Si Marky hindi ibinoto ang sarili. He voted for Bugz who earlier discriminated Marky for being an Igorot. Mabait talaga si Marky, super talented pa.

    Kahit inapi-api ni Bugz noon si Marky, binoto rin ni Bugz si Marky(plastic ka ba, Bugz?) At si Marky binoto niya si Bugz. Mabait talaga si Marky!

    MARKY IS REALLY THE BEST.

    MARKY IS ALL TALENTED (drama actor, singer, dancer, puwede ring pang action star)

    MARKY IS VERY HANDSOME.

    Sana huwag lalaki ang ulo mo, MARKY.

  24. Marky’s performance is very remarkable from the start…I am hlf igorot2 but im living the life of pure igorot..

    To Marky…always remember to keep your feet on the ground no matter how high you fly…

    In behalf of all the Cordillerans, we wish you goodluck and we support you!

  25. hello marky, keep up the work huh?!! ikaw ang bet ko sa mga starstruck.. sana pagbutihin mo pa, you deserve all the awards that you have..take care always MARKY!!

  26. Hello marky! Im not really into watching TV programs but ever since d news of you, a fellow Igorot, making it up to ss3 final 14, I must say I become addicted to watching ss3. Since u came out on tv, u did us a great favor. u did change a lot of misconceptions here about us, the Igorots, which we’ve been trying hard to do since we entered the university. You made us somewhat popular, 2. Thanx to u!

    I’ve watched last nyt’s elimination round and we (with hausmates) were very happy of the result, plus factor pa that ol ur contenders voted for you to b the ss3 sole survivor. wat can we say?u really hav d qualities to be d ss3 survivor.

    we also like the humble way you respond to these praises, appreciations, awards, etc. u receive and hope u’ll forever stay dat way. Show them the true qualities of an Igorot!

    Anyway, keep it up. U have the support of Cordillerans here in UPLB. God bless!

  27. Hello all!

    After Sunday’s episode where all the Survivors voted for Marky – there is one thing that we all should never fall into – complacency. The fans (and family) of the other survivors would have seen the strength of Marky then – and might double their efforts to vote. So, we must never feel complacent and slack with our votes. Remember that votes account for 50% of the results and we don’t want to lose just because of this technicality.

    To Marky (hope this gets to him):

    The people have spoken. Not just your co-survivors, competitors – but all the blogs are showing that people do find a breath of fresh air in you – in your being down to earth, in your humility despite your great talent – and for putting your whole heart, your passion into everything that you do.

    Remember these things – that these are the very things that make us stop and take notice – and that make us support you. Don’t lose these great attributes – and strive some more to enhance them.

    Pressure’s up with all these expectations – but nothing beats the combination of sheer hard work, and passion for your craft – and putting a yourself 100% into whatever you do!

    Go, Marky!

  28. I agree with you spacenoodle.We shouldn’t be complacent . Let’s continue voting for him.
    I hope marky is reading all our messages..
    Marky, hone your craft….. :)

  29. hi marky, if you can find time, you are cordially invited to grace the CARAA and the Lang-ay Festival. these are two big events in Mountain Province.

  51. Hi Marky!
    It seems that you’re having a hard time with Joey de Leon. Take it as a challenge. He’s challenging you ultimately. Prove to them that igorots can stand on the limelight.

  52. Congratulations, Marky, for a job well done!
    I never thought that the Igorots would go fanatic over a person in the limelight. Alam mo naman na hindi dating gawain ng mga Igorots ang maging fanatic sa mga taong nasa limelight di ba? Famous actors and actresses can come here in the uplands na hindi sila pinagkakaguluhan. They can walk the streets without being disturbed by fans. They can find peace dito sa lugar natin pero wag ka Marky, you broke that attitude. Prepare yourself dahil pagbalik mo dito pagkakaguluhan ka na rin. Hindi lang autograph, hugs and kisses pero panggigilan ka na rin. Hehe I am one of those, biro mo nakipagsiksikan kami sa SM Baguio just to have a glimpse of you ha.

    Sabi nga nila, your being an igorot endears us to us. You really made it big. I BET IT MARKY, YOUR BEING A SOLE SURVIVOR WON’T BE THE SATISFACTION, IT IS YOUR BEING PRIDE OF THE IGOROTLANDIA THAT MAKES IT REALLY SATISFYING. GO MARKY, CHAMPION THE HEARTS OF MANY AND ENTICE THEM MORE WITH YOUR TALENTS!

  53. On your march, get set, GOOOOOO MARKY! Bring home the bacon to Cordillera. Here in Baguio, it sounds very political. Seems that it is high time for campaign. I see a lot of banners and posters asking to support you almost everywhere. I see it in buildings, stores, houses, bars and resturants and almost all establishments. Everybody is very engrossed talking about you, how talented and gorgeous looking you are… Everybody keeps chanting your name and you can just hear almost everybody reminding one another to vote for you, even in txt, I got used receiving and forwarding it especially to my friends in Manila…That’s how intensed the cordilleran people supports you. You have embedded pride in each one of us. Go Marky!

  54. all out support ako for Marky,for me he’s only one who Deserve to be sole survivor…Go Marky i always praying that you could win every challenges….Vote for Marky!

  60. hi bigfoot, so sad to hear what you’ve gone through because of racial discremination. there’s a lot to learn about your race — marky’s race. perhaps proper education should be built. anyway, good to hear that your officemates were able to differentiate the true you from their imaginative thinking about igorots. what’s the big deal? i really cant seem to identify what makes an igorot different from any other race. We are all filipinos, living in one country and abiding the same law under a common constitution. so why the issue of something that has been there for generations… So glad that someone came out to the open and made the difference. That’s the reason why i love Marky… aside from the looks, the smile, the appeal — he has a true heart. I wont hesitate to go to broadway, scream like a fagot and be called ‘jologs’ by my officemates. Who cares? I love the guy, i support him.. And I forever will.

  74. Hi to all!
    I am so touched reading all your comments about Marky and the whole of Igorotlandia. For the sake of people who wanders what it is to be an Igorot, I designed this comment for you. Igorots in its etymology was derived from the vernacular “i-gulod” with i that refers to place. It was recalled that decades before, the Americans were asking people from “i-gulod” as to who they are. To diferrentiate it with those of the lowlands, they answered they are “i-gulod” a vernacular term of people from the mountains which was pronounced by Americans as Igorots due to their twang English. Since then, the “i-gulod” were called Igorots.

    As to how and why the Igorots are unique referring to their Heritage, it gives credit to their being uncolonized. History points out that the Igorots were not colonized by Spaniards. They were very vigilant and was able to preserve the “gulod” making them uncolonized. Since there was no colonization, the Igorots were able to preserve their culture and go on with their practices and traditions. Years passed by, the Igorots welcomed foreign missionaries. That is how the Igorots were discovered. The missionaries documented the uniqueness of the Igorots. they developed the talents and skills of the natives. They put up schools and clinics as well as Livelihood centers such as those of Sagada weaving as well as Sabangan weaving. If you notice, the Igorots have a very good command of the English language. Even old folks who are no read no write can converse with you in English. Well it speaks, Igorotlandia was the center of missionary activities before. With the influx of foreign tourists and missionaries that visit the Cordillera every year especially Banawe and Sagada, the Heritage of the Igorots were many times published in books and magazines. Writers from all over the globe go to Banawe and sagada and document the lifestyle of the Igorots and that is how Masferre became popular. With the passage of time, the Igorots were able to be influenced by American culture. That is how the phrase ” id Besao ah katikateg ad Us, nan breakfast mi ah, eggs” came as a joke. It means to say ” In Besao, it looks like US, our breakfast is eggs.” The Igorot people were able to make live some foreign cultures and the most of which was the knowledge of the English language. It is normal for Igorots to converse in the English language. As to the architecture also, try visiting Sagada and you would be mezmerize, it looks like a country setting in US. The houses there are foreign inspired and people are friendly and they seem to be good conversationalists.

    You may have noticed, Igorots are not fond of our local entertainment . May it be in music and showbiz. They prefer country and foreign alternative music and reggae too. With movies, they prefer English movies over Tagalog. Why? The igorots since time immemorial was discriminated by non Igorots. They were mistreated and a lot of misconceptions and booboos were very evident. The Igorots didn’t have a good rapport to other Filipino tribes. They were always addressed as “ay Igorot” and it was said with contempt preempting the Igorots to make an impression and reach out that Igorots are no diferrent to the rest of Filipinos. Try to interact with the Igorots and you will know their mind setting why they are not fanatic. They seem cool towards famous local actors and actresses.

  75. I read ur comment bigfoot and virolabel and loida. i like ur attitude of facing these challenges against us, torogis. Anyways i also experienced this, eversince i came to the city for college and it made me stronger facing this “kaignorantehan” of others towards us.
    In exchange, i idolize more foreign celebrities than local ones. Foreigners appreciate highlanders than other races in the country could. They say our culture is unique and one to be proud off. (sorry ha paulit- ulit na, sorry i carried away! aren’t we? hehe)
    Basta Marky, what ever happens, always keep your feet in the ground… just turn around, i’ll be TWO STEPS BEHIND, gemays!…. good luck

  77. hi! Some people had a wrong impression when they saw marky aan igorot.Igorots are talented,educated and God fearing people.They have close family ties and a sense of respect to there elders.thats makes Marky a winning dude.Compared to all his companions.i guess Marky has the best family foundation,with love from the family and prayers from everybody.

  78. ………………….M@Rky your the best & I know that you ARE very proud to be IGOROT ………..even I am IBALOI I also have many FRIENDS BONTOK ………
    ………M@RKY do your best I,WE all kinds of TOROGI will support you..

  79. Adi takun bubukudan di GAWIS!!! Mayat ay aldaw taku amin!!! Ibutos taku si Marky Cielo!!! Torogi Rules!!!!!

  80. Hello!
    Thanks Iyx for the response. We all are carried away. For a long time, we’ve been tolerating those misconceptions and booboos towards us that’s why we seem to have this outpour of emotions to defend our great heritage.

    Let me tell you some of those discriminatory experiences one of which was those of 2 people from Bauko Mt. Province who was denied of their Insurance benefit just because they are Igorots, another is the then T.V. sitcom Lucy loves Richard where, in one of its episode lambasted the Igorots. It’s kinda insulting since it is scripted but we have to give couples Lucy and Richard an excuse because they don’t have knowledge about who we are. Atleast Lucy had the heart to make up for what she has said years before. She liked Marky and even bets him to be the sole survivor. Let’s appreciate her for that as what our ancestors had taught us, the value of restorative justice.

    Over and above these are all those booboos and misconceptions about us. A friend of mine who went to UP Diliman for college was somehow engaged in a heated class discussion. Their instructor asked them to report about their respective provinces so my friend reported about Mt. Province. When she was delivering her report, one of her classmates interrupted chuckling “ay igorot”. My friend was piqued and since that is a verbal abuse she answered saying that indeed she is an Igorot but what it is that made her different from them. Their instructor, seeing the tension, interrupted and lectured the class that the purpose of the report was for learning and not to argue with. Another also is the experience of the grandfather of my friend who was rushed to one of the hospital in Manila. The hospital staffs were hesitant to admit him saying “wala yan wala yan, walang pera ang mga yan, Igorot yan eh? when all of a sudden, a doctor came in and told the staffs that the patient is his grandfather. The staffs were hushed ashamed of what they had reacted. To humor it, they became more embarrassed when they came to know that one among the companion of the patient is a lawyer who happens to be his son and the other is an engineer in Saudi. It’s true, the Igorots are simple in their way of dressing. They are the simple t-shirt jean type people. They are somehow behind when it comes to fashion. It is understandable because of the moral orientation of the Igorots. They have a very high moral orientation. They are simply conservative, very typical Filipinos upholding the values of Maria Clara. But is it enough to level us down just because we are not that person with a fashion sense? We were not dressed up fashionable, is that enough basis to conclude that we don’t have money and that we are to be shooed away and not deserve a treatment from the hospital? Igorots are not materialistic. We may not have expensive, fashionable clothes but we have beautiful and comfortable houses to live with. We can afford expensive foods and the case of poverty to Igorots is very minimal.

    Yes, all of us had a lot of stories to tell. All those misconceptions that Igorots are barbaric, uncivilized, monkey-looking with the buntot and dark complexions, stupid, ignorant were just normal for us to hear. We have so many circumstances in life that we were mistreated due to our being an Igorot. We’ve been so silent, unmindful of what they’re telling us. I myself just shrugged it off…well, we didn’t entertain it that much, it’s not our lost anyway…its their great lost because educated people who knows well the Igorots had come to like and appreciate the Igorots.

    Truely, the Igorots are the minority. But we have won the hearts of foreign countries. Narda’s products had reached the World market. You go to US and Masferre’s books and products are sold. Our locally grown cherries and strawberries were made into wine and it is packaged for export. Our short strawberry cake landed the guiness book of world record. Our food delicacy called “pinikpikan” cooked with “kini-ing” or “etag” is enjoyed by almost everybody regardless of race. Our wood carvings or sculptures were also for export quality and we also grow vegetables that are sold to lowlanders. Try interrupting foreign tourist as to where in the Philippines they like the most. Our tourist attractions attracted lots of foreigners and I proudly say that the Igorots had contributed a lot to the booming of Philippine Tourism. Even our festivals, we have the Panagbenga and Lang-ay festival or wine festival and many more had attracted foreigners too.

    It is very saddening that some writers from Manila don’t know even their geography. Sometimes they write Mt. Province Benguet. Truely, our local media seldom features the Igorotlandia while in fact our culture and the beauty of our nature were often featured on discovery channel and other foreign outfits. There are lots of interesting stories about the Igorots that are worth featuring. Invade the uplands and you will see the artistry of the Igorots. Almost all restaurants here in Baguio are decorated with lots of paintings featuring native artists. Visit also the bars here in Baguio and you will discover how good Igorots could sing too.

    The time has come for the Igorots to redeem themselves. Thanks for Marky. He has paved the way for the liberation. Marky broke the silence of the Igorots. He had let the Igorots slip away from the bondage of discrimination that beset them since time immemorial. Torogi rocks! An Igorot boy really made a nationwide invasion. For those who mistaken Marky as plastic, you are wrong. His humility and goodness of heart is genuine. He has wisdom in his words and he has a cool aura. Well, he has these qualities of an Igorot.

    To co- Filipinos, let’s be united. Don’t stray away the Igorots as you’ve been doing in the past. Be proud that somehow, the Philippines had an Indigenous tribe to be proud of. Discover us more and believe me, you will like us and appreciate us. We are in no way different to you except our unique heritage. We intend to preserve and live with it for we are not just proud about it but because it is our lifestyle and identity.

  81. yes, virolabel, all that u’ve said is true……i had my cousin’s site showing the indigenous culture of the cordillera, and since she cannot pay her account online, one foreigner found her site and he was much willing to sponsor it… http://www.fotolog.net/ayeona now its …… That’s why we thank them much coz they are the ones really valuing our own culture and of us as a whole…
    ok, so much has been said… what we just want from them is to look us at with a new eye……”Civilization begins when we are able to look at one another without fear”… we are the same…. Go Marky!!!!!!!

  82. ei marky… im proud of you… u knw, i dont watch GMA 7 but when i learned dat an igorot is up there in the stastruck, ayon, pgdating ng oras ng stastruck, lipat agad me… jz want to say good luck and god bless… jz always stay down to earth… and2 lng kmi sumusuporta praying that ul succeed… we are proud na ikaw una ngpakila2 lahi ntn s mundo ng showbiz… kaya mo yan… yul gonna be a HIT as long as u stay humble… yan lng… i really like u… more power to u,,, nxt time ulit!!!!!!!!!!!

Ibang-iba ang dating mo – pinoy na pinoy, lalaking-lalaki ang buong katauhan mo at malakas ang seks appeal. Malakas ang paniniwala ko na mabait at humble kang bata. Bilib din ako sa iyong pamilya. Sa napiling final 4, ikaw ang buo ang pamilya – sa suporta at, malakas ang pakiramdam ko, sa pag-aaruga at pagmamahal sa iyo pati na rin ang iyong mga kalahi.

  91. congrats Marky! You made it. Itinaas mo ang bandera ng mga igorot na nilalait sa lowlands. My mother is from Bauko also. Kaya, apir tayo!!!!!!!!

  92. Hello again!
    Thanks for appreciating my article. Sometimes, you have to make the most of any oppurtunity to make a point. With proper education, we, the Igorots will be appreciated.

    Thanks Iyx, that was a very nice site. Its a blessing to have met you and hope this is a start of a good friendship hehe. Try to log on also to http://www.basecampbaguio.com. Our beloved Cordillera promises a lot of nature tripping. Try visiting the site and discover the beauty of the outdoors featuring Cordillera. hahaha hope we could do some mountaineering and camping on top of the mountain.

    My hometown also has a plateau(very ideal for a romantic scene,hope Marky gets a shoot in this place), very ideal for camping. We also have a dense forest like Barlig that promises a serene communication with nature. Wow! I could just hear those chirping birds, smell those grassy scent and cool myself with the water dripping from the trunk of the trees. Pwaaamise, much much to see. Many orchids too.

    Back to Marky, I WAS THERE,MARKY! Thanks to your father, he gave me a ticket. hehehe I just wanted to witness in bold eyes the unfolding of a history…Marky, you are indeed a history maker, “the first sole survivor in the history of starstruck” and “the first Igorot who made it to stardom.” Alam mo bang classmate sana tayo sa ating veg. class? Hindi ka na tumuloy kasi nainterrupt ng pagsali mo sa starstruck hehehe(according to tita Bel) Anyway, txt mo naman ako, just want to know you up close and personal haha. Get my number sa daddy mo ha(shhh…hiya kasi me na gets sa father mo eh). Anyway, you’re sooo good! It wasn’t a close fight anyway. When I was watching, I wasn’t thrilled after all, because I and almost everybody knew that you will be the sole survivor. Even your co-survivors, they have blank faces, no signs of pain and tension on their faces…they know somehow that you are the SOLE!!! They seem relaxed, so with the audience…you really flaunted your craft enticing everybody that your being a sole is beyond contest…everybody expected that you are the winner…you left your co-survivors behind with no pangs of pain but rather an inspiration to make out the most of their craft…you really linked and inspired everybody and with that, Marky, I salute you for making a nationwide invasion.

  93. hi marky.

    congrats, the bibak people all over the world supported you all the way. make a difference. show the world how igorots are and correct their misconceptions. be the model of the younger generation. keep up.

  107. Hello Jen!
    I’m somehow delighted to read a comment coming from one of the artists of tam awan village. You’re right, Marky is a good artist too, but I have’nt checked yet from kwaderno the works of Marky. Hehehe, I really have to check on that yet. Anyhow, its not a question because the dad of Marky was the one who illustrated the cover design of Salin Buhay 2003 so Marky might have gotten that talent too.

    Hello again Marky! I’ve been obsessed visiting this site just to connect with you. I really don’t have enough time to watch T.V. so this is where I could be abreast of you especially that most of my work is computer based. I don’t know how its gonna work but if you could visit Baguio on the 22nd of April, please do come and together let’s celebrate Earth’s day. We have lots of activities to promote environmental awareness. Network groups such as the Cordillera Green Network, People’s Initiative for Learning and Development, Academic groups, Baguio Artists’ group and individuals with same cause will be spearheading the event. I would like also to call the attentions of youths here from the Cordillera to join us also with all of our activities. We will be having film showings, photo exhibits, forum on environment, book launching, poetry reading, speech competition, concert and music jam… April would be a very busy month for us with the Lang ay festival and the Earth’s Day. Hope to see you Marky sa Lang ay ha. And for those interested to join poetry reading and speech competition, visit the Cordillera Green Network office at Lopez Building, Session road. Let’s together assume our responsibility of stewardship to mother nature.

  112. its not marky being from besao or bauko,the real issue is he re-presents us a whole IGOROT and that should apply to all of us wherever we are now and how far we achieve in life,MA E E SANG TAKO,or be as one,ay baken?

  113. i just wanna say that he is the best dancer who join in starstruck,move over MARK kc obious naman n mas mgaling c marky nkkswa n ang face ni MARK.hope u watch sis where they both dance and both show some move breakdance actually and everyone bows on marky my god nsspwan na c mark at s mga taong mga ignorante s mga igorot parang mas wla kaung alam dapat bang tawgng mga buntot ang kanlang mga costumes kng d kau mga ignorante will thatsmy own observation. sorry pro naiinis lang ak s mga taong ganun dahil gnagwang katawa tawa ang mga igorot and kung englishan lang naman talong talo tlaga kayo un lang go go go marky

  114. hello Marky and his fans out there! Thanks God you made it. Gos knows you deserve the title. One thing that put you in the limelight is your humility. So to stay there on top, remain humble, keep your feet on the ground. Don’t let pride eat you.
    Stay as you are!
    Ate mo ako from La Union! Sinuportaan ka all the way till the finals night! Keep up the good work, ading!

  115. Congrats! Marky. I’m one of your supporters from Palawan. I supported you all the way-voted you through text. Malapit na ang finals when i found out that ur Weng’s cousin-tagal na raw kayo di nagkikita. I almost leaped for joy when she invited me to watch final judgment @ marikina. I also met your dad, di ako magtataka kung bakit mabait ka. Your Dad is so nice and kind (who’s so tired at that time fetching your supporters fr.diff.places)
    I can’t describe the joy aftr the announcement that you’re the sole survivor. Lahat kami wagi rin!!! Sa batch 3 ikaw lang sinuporthan ko coz of the attitude and talent. Continue shining! Basta, in everything you do, achieve acknowledge our GOD. We’ll continue to lift you up in prayers! Stay humble! Should you want to post prayer concern/item, just email it to pretiny@lycos.com
    P.S. Hope you can visit Palawan and meet your super duper daming supporters here.

  116. You’re a marvel :) Press on!!!! Just don’t forget your Creator… Give glory and honor to Him for He alone can sustain you.. God bless you!!!! :X

  117. Gawigawis inmaliyam id Bontoc…. Medyo narigat lang obpay nan celebrity figure. You cannot just get down and have the usual chat with anyone. Anyway, eestem kayet… Keep your feet on the ground… fixing your eyes on Jesus Christ, the giver of every good and perfect gift :))

  118. Congratulations Marky and supporters!!! I coundnt just remember how many times i clicked and voted for Marky. I even asked my customers (its a net cafe) to log on to the strstruck to vote for him and we were all excited….. at last u won… and u made a history!!!!

    I am not from Mt Province but a full blooded Igorot also, specifically a, KALANGUYA… Well not only igorots of Mt. Province supported u MARKY but also the KANKANA-EYS and IBALOYS and KALANGUYAS of the Cordilleras. ximpre.. we are all very proud of u. Dito natin makikita ang sinasabing PAGKAKAISA… and I hope that this would be the start of a more “bonded” o kaya “magandang samahan” among US i mean the IGOROTS in the Cordillera

    To VIROLABEL, congratulations for a very nice “article” about IGOROTS.. I am hoping to find blogs of yours also about the other IGOROTS…

  122. Uy aginayah pay nga adda kad ta!!??????
    Ine permi man kaman tet-ewa nan mang2yari cna mo!!!!! sya matagotago tako ngam-in…. Markyyyy adim lidungan han toothbrush mo id ba-ey……

  123. oy!!!!!!!
    ano nmn ang msama s pgiging igorot?! cute nga sya eh….
    ung mga ngsbi nun,………. INGGIT lng sila noh……….

  124. halllo kakailyan what daw sbi, anybody who can defferentiate ilocano from igorot?
    hahahah nice pala sa work ko kanina an american told me that”GIRL YOUR ENGLISH IS BETTER THAN THE MOST,SINCE I LAND MY FEET HERE AT GENERAL SANTOS I HAVE TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING EVRYBODYS ENGLISH TILL I TALK TO YOU!!! DI ANG HABA NA NAMAN NG HAIR NG IGOROTA…. I JUST SAID”THANK YOU SIR ITS JUST BECAUSE IM AN IGOROT” AND HE SAID ……OHHHH IGOROTS ARE BETTER THEN, AS U CAN SEE SIR…HEHEH LUMABAS PAGKAMALDITA KO KANINA KC KAHARAP KO ANG MGA KA WORK KONG MAKIKITID ANG ULO…. WHEWWWWW

  125. check me if im wrong kakailyan!!!!! ay waday i besao isna?specially from agawa!!!! masameyeo to be specific i kumusta you sak en isken ikit ko ay KASINPAY from Kumbaya… ala siya ngarod ta sumaa ak et tay nalabi matagotago tako am in

  126. besat, inudi, pangamaen, alapo, inapo ken am-in ay wads nan kaigirotan ay naidaray IGOROT, gawi-gawis ay agew ya labi taku am-in… mabiya2g taku amin ay igorot nay inrugi nan besat takuy c marky nan mang-ingato sinan culture tako et entaku et abes itul2oy nan enna nirugian.. adday!!! nu waday lalaki, wada abes kuma nan babae,,, ahihih… just kidding.. anyway, hey torogi boy, we’re proud of you!! keep up the good work.. GOD bLESS us all..

  127. we just need an inspiration to come out of the open and declare our heritage….as for me, i’ve never been ashamed of who i am and of my roots and heritage…Everytime i go on field work to different places in the phillipines, i take it an opportunity to educate people i meet and to let them know that..hey, im an igorota and im proud of it…im not short, im not dark skinned, my hair is not kinky, im not dumb and ignorant, and most especially, i dont have tail and i dont live on trees…. res ipso loquitor!!!

    To all igorots, let us live up to the image that marky has built. Let’s prove to those “ignorant ones” that their misconception about igorots are very far from the truth. Majority of us have our own stories of being discriminated because we hesitate to deny or hide our true culture and heritage. “Kung taong-bundok man tao, atleast we can say we that we are civilized, educated, intelligent/talented, and marunong sa buhay”. I just hope that whatever pride we have on our culture will be passed on to the later generations, that they may also carry with them the “spirit” of the true igorot tribe.

    Anent to this, let us not forget the golden rule….we are always complaining about being discriminated so we already know the feeling…so let us also give respect to the “other groups” especially the minority ones…to earn respect, we must also give respect…

    To VIROLABEL, that was really a very nice and well written article…thank you for the info and the insights. We actually had the same hospital experience as what you’ve mentioned in your earlier article. But what the heck…. in the end….kinain din naman nla lahat ng sinabi nila….hehehe…

    Anyway, to MARKY, I may not be able to follow all your shows or activities but my support as well as the full support of those people whose hearts and lives you have touched will surely follow you through. Keep your feet on the ground, remain humble, keep improving your craft…and most especially…KEEP YOUR FAITH TO GOD AND THANK HIM ALWAYS FOR WHATEVER YOU HAVE RIGHT NOW…GOD BLESS US ALWAYS….

    SOLI DEO GLORIA!
