Proud daddy

Larry Ramos is yet to celebrate his birthday this Tuesday (March 20), and already he’s got the best birthday gift a parent would definitely not complain about: his daughter Larizza placing No. 10  in the recent board exams for physicians. To him, our warmest greetings and congratulations on his birthday and on this latest achievement of one of his children. Kaway-kaway, proud daddy! You deserve it.

Importance of teamwork


The following article was culled from the September-October 1977 issue of Ang Baranggay. Written Larry Ramos, AB’s sports editor, this editorial is part of a series of articles we are publishing here as a way of reminiscing our stint as campus journalists and showing the context we grew up in.

Tidbit: Did you know that Jun Vigo and John Marte Marcella were also part of the publication’s sports section? You may click here to view AB’s staff for schoolyear 1977-78.

I went to your wedding

Sometime ago we practically implored Larry Ramos to share some of his wedding pictures — to no avail. So we decided to mobilize our in-house researchers to dig up those snapshots. And above is what they have come up with: a photo of the very first wedding in our big “family”. (The date on the photo is not the wedding date, it’s when we shot it.)

Eddie Roberto stood as best man in this wedding and he might have been the one who took this one? Anyway, those in the pic are Mel Abas, Didi Espiritu, the late Jimmy Borja, Yoly and Larry, Keith dela Cruz (also one of the secondary sponsors), Jun Vigo and Lito Parungo.

Huling inuman

Hindi na namin matandaan kung kailan kinunan ang mga larawang ito. Kung ito ang kauna-unahang pag-uwi ni Lito Parungo sa Pilipinas matapos ang anim na taong paglalagalag sa labas ng bansa, malamang ay taong 1997 ito. Huling gabi na ni Lito sa Pinas noon at kinabukasan ay pabalik na siyang muli sa Amsterdam.
