Chie’s in town

London-based classmate Reny “Chie” dela Peña is in Manila right now to spend another well-deserved vacation. Zeny Cervantes, Remy Tuazon (with her mother and grandson in tow) and Evelyn Bongalon met up with her yesterday at SM-San Lazaro for lunch. Welcome back, Chie! Come back in August for our batch’s grand reunion.

Remy’s day

Remy Tuazon-Martin celebrated her birthday last September, and we are finally sharing the photos taken during the celebration. Among the peps who attended were Keith dela Cruz, John Marcella, George Hizon, Eva Llabres, and Gil Buan who came with wife Elsie and daughter Patnubay. More photos can be viewed here. Belated happy birthday, Remy!

Bernardino Tuazon

Another death has just struck us today. Bernardino Tuazon, Remy’s father, has joined his Creator this noon, just five days after Ana Marie Joaquin’s mother’s passing. Tatay Bernardino, shown above with Nanay Araceli during their 50th wedding anniversary last year, had been sick for a time. He and his wife recently arrived in the Philippines supposedly for a short vacation.

Tatay’s remains lie at Remy’s home in Antipolo City and the burial is set for April 27 at 9 a.m.

We  would like to express our sincerest condolences to the whole Tuazon clan for this terrible loss.

Scaling Mount Samat

Our dear Remy Tuazon-Martin is sharing these pictures of the family’s recent visit to Mount Samat in Pilar, Bataan, which, incidentally, is also the birthplace of Danny Martin.

Mount Samat is the site of the Dambana ng Kagitingan (Shrine of Valor), built in honor of the thousands of Filipino and American soldiers who perished fighting the Japanese Imperial Army in 1942.
