Slumbook, ghost stories, etc.

Expect the unexpected when the peps are gathered in one room. We mean the range of topics they choose to discuss is really amazing.

Memo from the management

Please be advised that we are implementing the following set of office policies effective today.

Dress Code:

1) You are advised to come to work dressed according to your salary.

2) If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we will assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise.

3) If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a raise.

4) If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a raise.

Reunion story

We’d been receiving emails from the peps, asking us to write something about the reunion we held last July 12-13 in Calamba, Laguna. So here it is, at last. And to start off, allow us to open this story with messages sent to us by two peps:

“Thanks a lot for a great weekend of fun at the reunion. Sure am happy to have spent time with all of you. Even for a moment I have once again experienced how it is to feel young and carefree. Love you all.”

Batch ’73 launches website

We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the members of LDHS Batch ’73 on the launching of  their website:

Not too long ago, a number of them were exchanging emails with us, all of them sharing their own experience in tracking down batchmates. We’re just glad they now have their own virtual meeting place, which is a welcome addition to websites maintained by LDHS graduates. To know how the site came about, read Aoie Calaoagan-Maghirang’s article How it started.

Class ’73 is holding a grand reunion on January 31, 2009, 6:00 p.m. , at the Edsa Plaza Shangri-la in Mandaluyong. Those interested can send an email to:
