Thanks From Malou

     Malou expressed her gratitude to all the well-wishers on the death of his Dad, Benjamin Cruz.  She had a problem with her email address but we somehow got our messages across with the help of Fr. Erick.
     She asked me to pass on this email to everyone.  She also made this comment on our website....
     "I am really glad that our newsletter is keeping everyone abreast of developments in each other's lives."

<<<==Before & After

     Ross Misa must be "the most popular and well-known" person in the batch. Everybody look up to him...not just because he is tall, but because he is a gentle and caring dude.  Since we were in first year, when somebody ask for a leader, everyone unaninously point to Ross.  He never lost that touch. When we started this plan for the reunion we all think of Ross as the best one to lead us. 
     Ross is now works as a T.V. Commercial Producer.  The four little Rosses of Ross are John Ross, Mary Anne Ross, Evangeline Ross, Eugene Ross.
     As one of the honor students in high school, Ross has shown us the art of leadership.

Newly-Found Buddy

     Finally got a chance to exchange an email with my best buddy, Marcie Mateo-Gregorio and one of my cousin's husband is her friend...what a small world!  For those of you who has been waiting to get in touch with her, here is Marcie's email address: marcie_gregorio@yahoo.com 

Newly-Found Buddy

     I got an email from Willie (Dy? or Santos?) asking how to get to the website.  He is from E-3, a classmate of Terry & Ruben.  I sent him an emmail back and ask for his info.  I am still waiting for his response.  Meanwhile you can contact him @ willie@kfupm.edu.sa

"by the way, boyet  told me that you guys are looking for thess samson. well, the last time i heard from her was when she was about to transfer her residence in san jose, bulacan.  i believed she's still employed at the National Home Mortgage Corporation (sa pinas). so, you might want to ask someone in pinas to check her out in that office."   -jojo auggie garcia

REWARD: 1 Million Thanks


     Thanks From Malou

     "thank you very much for the condolence card. i did have some problem with my email address coz i did not use it for two months, and since it was for free, it was automatically discontinued.  this was the time tatay was confined in the phil. heart center, hence my whole world, somehow had to take a back seat, esp. my work. i am able to use the internet only when i am in u.p.or in a net cafe, so napabayaan ko.  kindly do me a nother favor by sending this email, esp. to those who expressed their sympathies. i wont mention anymore their names, they know who they are.  thank you very much to all of you.  i might have another email address but i am still working it out.

     again, thank you very much. fr. erick might be able to say the mass for tatay's 40th day death anniversary on july 3.  am really glad that our newsletter is keeping everyone abreast of developments in each other's lives."

GOD BLESS you and your family.

Hi Friends,

Darating ba kayo dito tonight for dinner? The Ponios are coming, so are the Cajiuats, Evangelistas, Galvezes and Piastes for a mini reunion ulit.  It's too bad that the weather is not cooperating, umuulan as usual Vancouver, kaya mag-sisiksikan kami dito sa loob,  it will be cozy though.  Kaya kung kaya ninyong humabol, habol na sa dinner at Chicahan. O sige mga friends we will update you na lang sa mga mangyayaring event ngayong gabi. Bye and regards to your family circle.


Here is a picture from the dinner / mini-reunion hosted by Terry & Julius Abad in Richmond, BC to welcome the Ponios.
From the left (clockwise): JJ, Beng, Gigi, Nathan, Fenchie, JT, Leah, Gideon, Abigail, LeeAnn, Ben, Charmaine Joyce, Florence, Terry, Faye & Joy. (hope I got the caption right)

Here is another re-run and we are still waiting for pictures from Liby & others.

Liby Rueda-Odiamar and Ernie visited Beng Nuguid-Evangelista and Terry Javier-Abad in Richmond. 
Here is an excerpt on Liby's email to our Vancouverites:

  "I am so sorry I did not get the chance to even call you when we got back 'cause we got so busy with my colleges friends. Thank you so much for the wonderful time, the food especially the pansit and the mango from Terry's plantation he!he!he!  Ernie, myself and  my friends are really thankful and blessed. I felt so bad 'cause we have to come home that afternoon. I should have asked my friends to stay but  hopefully next time we will be staying for a day or two so we could fellowship and reminisce the high school days. I thank the Lord for we finally see each other after high school. Lord Bless.  I could not attache the pictures, I'll send it after this."

In His Love.......................Ernie & Liby
