With the last plane out, Ernie R. aboard and when I passed by Nelias house in Sto. Domingo and saw her no more did I come to accept the fact that the curtain for our Grand Reunion has really gone down.
It feels so great to look back at the memories of May 2007.What a way to spend this merry month with old friends and batch/classmates who came so close to you and felt the warmth of their love and care...things that you seem have not given attention 44 years ago.Ganito pala ang nagiging senior citizen..nagiging sentimental at emotional.Even those batch/classmates na narito sa Orion ,dati ay di napapansin at nababati (nagbabago na kasi ng mukha at di na makilala) ngayon ay nagkaroon na ng meaning at place sa ating buhay.
Thanks to this Grand Reunion and to those who initiated, planned and spent their resources and time that this affair may come true.Mabuhay kayo mga Balik bayans(Bbs)and more power..(Pareng Mike,Mok ,Ernie R.Ernie S Frank,BenRuben,Pilar,Cora,Annie and Eddie,Nelia and Editha) So glad to see these Locals(Lls)na kahit paminsan minsan na nagdaraos tayo ng mga baby reunions ay bihira o never na nasama.Wake up you are missing a lot.(Tuding, Fely F.Linda A,Crisostomo C.Tonying A,Danny Quicho,Generoso G,Orly L,Noning S,NandingSd,Doming L ...to name a few)I am looking forward to meet Alberto Olmo ,Danilo Guzman Alberto Gabriel atb....Nasaan na kayo?
The only regret I have about this Grand Happening is not keeping a diary/journal of what transpired during the Highlights or major events of this month-long reunion .How I wish I could share every bits and pieces of these events...Siguro kung mayroong complete attendance dito , ako yon at si Fely R.(Confession;There were times then that Fely and I planned to skip an event or two -because of pagod daw, puyat, init, katamaran-mga made- up excuses namin sa sarili-but coming back to our senses and reality ..we did not want to miss the fun ..the chika chika and the warmth of brother/sisterhood that was slowly enveloping the group and so.....WE WERE THERE WHEN IT ALL HAPPENED
