LDHS Batch ’78 is ending 2010 and welcoming 2011 with a yearend reunion this December 30 at Spring Deer Restaurant on Timog Avenue (corner Scout Tobias) in Quezon City. The affair will start from 11:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. The get-together is Part 2 of last year’s successful reunion held by the batch to celebrate its 31st anniversary. Mark your calendar now and don’t miss seeing newly found batchmates who have confirmed their attendance. See you there!
Two days before leaving the country, Lito Parungo was able to meet up with Chris Panlilio, Jorge Bagasan and long-lost best friend Orly Castro at the Congo Grille in SM-San Lazaro. Over bottles of beer they spent the whole afternoon reminiscing their high school days. As you all know, Orly got to be reunited with Batch ’78 just recently and he is looking forward to attending more activities in the coming months.
We just found out that some members of Batch ’78 are holding a monthly all-girl bonding activity, the latest of which was a bowling session to welcome IV-2’s Rizza Santos. Would there be a boys’ night out soon?
The pictures can be viewed here.

Batch ’78 is meeting today, May 19, at 3:00 p.m. in SM-San Lazaro. Please assemble in front of Jonas Noodle House. We shall be discussing future activities so be there if you have bright ideas to share. Vacationing batchmates are also expected to attend.
We’ve just updated our list of Batch ’78 graduates, adding those who recently let their presence felt. Above is Evangeline Capulong (IV-2) and the four most important men in her life. Vangie is now a neighbor of our classmate Yoly Mañalac in New Jersey. The picture above was taken during the family’s visit to the state of California last month.
The search for the missing members of Batch ’78 is still in full swing. This time, it is Alex Santos who has been recently “checkmated”, as our friend Chris Panlilio described how they found their classmate and got him into a drinking session.
Brunei-based Alex, who happened to be the class president of IV-2, is currently vacationing in the Philippines and it is his first time to be reunited with his former classmates.
The group met up for lunch at Rowena de Omaña’s house in Caloocan City before proceeding to attend the fiesta at Sonny Jarabe’s place.
