Literary gems

In our previous post we promised we would be featuring poems published in the Valentine’s issue of The Barangay circa 1977. Featured poets are Conrad Santiago, Jorge Bagasan Jr., Zenaida Cervantes and George Hizon. Conrad and Jorge are from IV-3.

An ala-Tia Dely article written by Ana Marie Joaquin “for people with loveaches” is also published below.

Let’s enjoy these for now as we continue to rummage through our files for more literary gems.

Take it from Ate Ana

This is for the current crop of LDHS students out there who might be looking for ways to study effectively: a how-to article written 38 years ago by our wacky classmate Ana Marie Joaquin. Be forewarned, though, that parental guidance is required. We can only hope that reading this piece of advice will, as its title suggests, put a smile on your face.

Gertrudes Joaquin

Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.
-William Makepeace Thackeray

We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Ana Marie Joaquin and her whole family on the death of her mother Getrudes. Mom Getrudes passed away yesterday after a lingering illness. The wake is at the Elysium Memorial on Juan Luna, near Maypajo. The peps are planning to go there tomorrow, so please contact Remy Tuazon if you can come along.
