At exactly 6 pm ,May 25 we gathered at Fely's Place to attend the dinner tendered by Nelia in honor of their patron saint, Sto Domingo,whose fiesta is celebrated that day.Rolly with Lita graciously accommodated us,in their van(Fely,Belen, Julie Violeta and me)while Emma and Fred were in their owner type jeep.What greeted us is the old reliable reunion streamer, again proudly hung at Nelia's gate..."Oh it's reunion time again," somebody said.Editha was already there when we arrived.Later Rosa and Mercy arrived.
The recipes are all delicious but I liked the " nilasing na hipon" best.As expected food is overflowing and after dinner is Videoke time.Rollie and Lita scored very high in their renditions of some old favorites and love songs.Fred also showed his singing style and dedicated a song to Julie...Nelia also sang some old love songs,how I wished I have a good singing voice so I can also join the singers of our batch. Editha left early to finish packing for her flight the next day.
While most of our balikbayan batchmates have returned, all of us will always remeber their efforts to bring us closer again just like the old times in JRI. And for our President,Mike Cruz,you deserve all the laurels!
