Pagbati kay John

John Marte

Dapat ay masayang pagbati namin ang post na ito para sa aming kamag-aral na si John Marte Marcella. Pero ngayon lang namin nalaman mula sa kanya na namayapa na rin pala ang nakatatanda niyang kapatid.

Kanina lang ay tinawagan siya ni Remy Tuazon-Martin at sinabi ni John na nagpaalam ang kanyang kuya noong Hunyo 9, limang araw matapos yumao ang kaklase nating si Ronnie Gorgonio. Hindi na niya matandaan kung may nasabihan siya sa mga peps.

Kasabay ng aming pagbati kay John ng maligayang kaarawan ay ang aming pakikiramay na rin sa kanya at sa pamilya Marcella.

John, hindi mo siguro napanood yung video na alay sana namin sa iyo dito. Inalis muna namin at baka hindi bagay sa panahon ng iyong pagluluksa. Tawag ka lang sa mga peps.

Pathways to ’99


Written by Larisa Glenda Togonon

I attended my high school reunion a few days ago. It was a much hyped event, with all those Facebook announcements and all. As I counted the weeks and days leading up to it, images of Romy, Michelle and Martin Blank kept swirling in my head. Of David Cook, too, whose concert I would be ditching for my high school girlfriends (sorry, love).

Follow-up reunion

Jose Chan has posted photos of their class reunion held on June 20 at Naty Samonte-Cabrera’s place in Caloocan. The activity was a follow-up to the May 31 get-together held by our batchmates to track down and gather all members of Batch ’78.

Aside from Jose and Naty, also present were Vic Aguila and wife Annabel Beroy, Rody Dabalos, Rolan Sanchez, Rey Remirez, Edgar Inamarga, Boyet Malonzo, Cristeta Cristobal, Sonny Jarabe, Cristino Abuan, Toto Panlilio, Edith Ocampo-Cortez, and Rebecca Pati. Classmate Becka Pabustan had a “cameo appearance” by calling  from her base in the US.

Tidbit on Mel

Mel's thesis
Did you know that Mel Abas earned a master’s degree in mathematics from the Angeles University Foundation in Pampanga?

We just found this out when we stumbled upon Mel’s thesis, entitled “A proposed workbook in trigonometry for high school students”, in the online database of the National Library (click image to enlarge).

As we all know, Mel moved with his family to Sta. Rita, where he would eventually teach mathematics at Guagua National Colleges’ engineering department.

We haven’t heard from Mel since he immigrated to the US several years ago, but wait for further announcement about him next month. We have requested a friend to look for his relatives in Pampanga.
