Birthday boy

This photo was taken in October 2008, when classmate Ariel Dimacali was leaving for Bahrain. We just realized we haven’t seen or had much contact with him since then. It’s his birthday on February 4 and we would like to wish him all the best. We’ll try to organize something for Ariel when he comes back this year.

Ric Manuel is also celebrating his birthday this month, but we have yet to locate him. Any news?

Happy trip, Ariel

Our friend Ariel Dimacali, after having been away from the group for so long, is again leaving us. Tomorrow, October 12, he is flying for Bahrain for another employment stint. Ariel (seated rightmost) and wife Vivian (second from left) are joined in the photo by the peps in a despedida held for him recently.

We wish Ariel happy trip. Take care and we’ll see you next year.

Encore with the two peps

The peps got together yesterday with “newcomers” Ariel Dimacali and June Lapira. They must have really enjoyed it that they are holding a Part 2 this Sunday, September 14, 4 p.m., at Ruby Gaviola-Guevarra’s residence in Quezon City. As always, everyone’s welcome to attend, especially those who failed to make it yesterday.

George Hizon and Remy Tuazon-Martin have filed their reports on yesterday’s meeting and we will be posting the final writeup as soon as the photos (and videos) are in.
