Mel for president

Mel Abas, leftmost, with Eddie and Lito during their college days

We know now why our classmate Mel Abas has yet to get in touch with us: he has been preoccupied with his political career in the United States, where he and his family immigrated a few years ago.

In fact, Mel is creating his own brand of tsunami in American politics by, lo and behold, jumping into the presidential fray. Yes, John Marte Marcella, you read it right. Our dear friend, one of our class’ best orators, is running for president of the most powerful country on earth!

Watch Channel 3’s news repor, Mel Abas for president, which delves into how a grassroots movement could possibly catapult a virtual unknown, a person no American voter has ever seen yet, to the highest office of that country.

Mel, manalo-matalo, tatanggapin ka pa rin amin. Kaya magpakita ka na!

Advance happy birthday on November 1, by the way.


Visiting Rome

If you are wondering what’s keeping Reny “Chie” dela Peña busy these days, we are posting here some photos we grabbed from her Friendster account. Wala lang, papasyal-pasyal lang siya.

Recently Chie visited Rome, Italy’s capital, which is often touted as the world’s biggest open museum. Above is Chie, posing before the famous Colosseum.

Miss Tangco

In case you haven’t seen it on the LDHS Alumni Network website, we are posting a photo of Ms. Rodelia Tangco, the IV-1 girls’ teacher in YDT-CAT. With her in the  picture, which was taken last year by Fe Mamaril-Fauni (Batch ’71), is fellow teacher Mrs. Emy Boongaling-Tuyay (Batch ’79).

It would be nice if we could invite Ms. Tangco to our future activities. It’s a shame that we forgot to ask for her during our recent visit to LDHS and personally invite her to our reunion. To think that she had been (and still is) updating our classmate Rorie Quijano about our former teachers.

If you get to read this post, ma’am, please accept our sincerest apologies. Babawi na lang po kami.
