Here’s the video of the dance number performed by the peps during the LDHS Batch ’78’s 40th anniversary reunion last August 18. Kudos to all of them, especially to choreographer Jo Monte de Ramos, for being able to come up with this performance just a few hours before the event.

We shall be posting more photos and videos of this memorable get-together as soon as possible.

Football in LDHS

We were pleasantly surprised to see this video of a football meet inside the LDHS campus. First, football (or soccer, as it is called in the US) is no popular sport in the Philippines and, second, it is a sport usually played by men. That’s why seeing all these teams of girls playing and enjoying the sport has made watching the footage — neatly shot, by the way — a rather enjoyable experience.

We are also sharing this video to to all LDHS alumni who haven’t been to the school since their graduation.

Farewell, Ric

Don’t be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetime, is certain for those who are friends. ~Richard Bach

And yet again, we say goodbye to another classmate of ours, Ricardo V. Manuel, who has joined his creator in heaven. Ric’s death was confirmed by his son, Exequiel, who told us his father passed away last January because of a lingering illness.

The last time we saw Ric was in 1988, when we celebrated our section’s 10th anniversary in Matabungkay, Batangas. He then moved to Puerto Princesa, Palawan, with his family.

Our deepest condolences to the whole family. 😦



We would like to convey our deepest condolences to Rorie (IV-1, ’78), Ludy (IV-1, ’81) and Rizza (IV-1, ’85) for the passing of their father Dr. Bayani Quijano. We join them in praying for the eternal repose of his soul. Dr. Quijano is now reunited in heaven with wife Severina, a former English teacher at LDHS, who died eight years ago.

Wake is at the Holy Trinity Memorial Chapels and Crematorium (Fr. McGivney Suite) on Sucat Road, Parañaque. Viewing commences tomorrow, April 5, from 8 a.m. Interment will be at the Manila Memorial Park Parañaque on Sunday, April 8, after the necrological mass and service (time to be announced).

MS in NZ

It’s been a while since the last time we got in touch with classmate Merle Salvador, so as an update we are posting here some photos of her and her family. The pics were taken in Auckland, New Zealand, where the family is based now. We do hope Merle makes it to our 40th anniversary reunion this August.

Proud daddy

Larry Ramos is yet to celebrate his birthday this Tuesday (March 20), and already he’s got the best birthday gift a parent would definitely not complain about: his daughter Larizza placing No. 10  in the recent board exams for physicians. To him, our warmest greetings and congratulations on his birthday and on this latest achievement of one of his children. Kaway-kaway, proud daddy! You deserve it.
