SoCal’s First Christmas Party

Dec. 16, 2009 - SoCal group finally had its first Christmas Party on Saturday, December 12th.

It was just a small group of us, but nonetheless full of fun despite the rainy day. It was hosted by Manny & Rose (Labarda) Aquino at their home in Buena Park. Manny & Rose went all out, as they do when they entertain. Hired a chef to prepare our meal for lunch & dinner. It was a non-stop eating!

Josie Larida- Bacud showed us 3 or 4 different line dance steps, more than enough to get a good work out. We acknowledged our 3-bday celebrants: Jayvee Omana, Josie Bacud & Joy Roque. Joy invited Father Joey to celebrate mass. After the mass, a few left with Jayvee to watch him sing with his choral group at his church. For those of us that stayed behind, we continued eating, then dancing. Even Fr. Joey danced the swing. While some were dancing, 4-of us were in another room playing wii bowling. I’m proud to say that I beat them all by scoring 279!

At about 9:30 p.m., everyone was back and we picked up eating again & non-stop joke telling, headed by Jayvee, Cesar & Gus. Instead of doing the “white elephant” gift giving, we decided to follow Manila’s version of “Right-Left” gift exchange. Must say, that was really more fun! Those present were: Me, Cory Gillera, Josie Larida- Bacud, Linda Ocampo- Espejo, Gus Estrada, Jayvee Omana, Chito Pangilinan, Manny & Rose Aquino, Cesar & Lynne Balbontin, Tony & Nancy Bautista, Ernie Morales & Joy Roque. Lastly, but most importantly – From SoCal to All our batch mates all over the world: A very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2010!!! - Bing Macavinta

2009 Batch Christmas Party

Dec. 9, 2009 - Batch'68 celebrated its annual Christmas Party last Dec. 5 (Saturday) at the residence of Baby Balatbat De Guzman at  #7 Joya St., Corinthian Gardens, EDSA, Quezon City. There were about 40 batchmates who attended the party.  It was an evening of non-stop eating, chikahan, Kodakan,  games, and raffle of lots of prizes donated by batchmates.  Of course the party will not be complete without the dancing - with several D.I.s ready to dance the night away with batchmates.   Bebet and Baby were the very creative game masters that evening, presiding over fun games like pic, pac, boom, hep hep, hooray (from Wow Wow Wee) and botica, bituka, butiki.  A lot of batchmates were mentally challenged that night to remember what they were supposed to say and do during the games.  A unique way of exchanging gifts was done that evening - we all stood in a circle holding the gift that each one brought.  Bebet read a story, and every time the word RIGHT is read, everybody passes his gift to the right, and when the word LEFT is read, gifts are passed to the left.  The gift that each person is holding at the end of the story is the gift he/she keeps.  To those who have  been asking for a copy of the text read by Bebet, we have uploaded it here - Left-Right Christmas Exchange Gift Game.

We wish to thank Baby for once more opening her house for our batch party and Bebet for her untiring efforts to unite the batch.  Of course, the party will not be successful without the presence of Batch'68, their spouses and friends.  So to everyone who took time from their busy schedule to celebrate with us, Maraming Salamat Po.

Joji Linan's Day with Tisha Reyes Nixon in Vancouver

Aug. 28, 2009 -  Tisha Reyes-Nixon warmly and excitedly welcomed Joji (Pangilinan) and Romy Linan who were in Vancouver for a week.   Both Tisha and Joji were just beside themselves with joy to see each other (oooh, after 40 years?) and engage in a never-ending chatting that lasted from morning to evening. Tisha treated the visiting couple to lunch in a Thai restaurant in downtown Vancouver, then took them to the Space Museum where they viewed the exhibits and watched a couple of shows (Galileo kept them quiet for a while :).   Dinner was at a Filipino restaurant where they shared halo-halo (no calories daw, kung hating magkapatid). Tisha was the ever so gracious and fun hostess who went out of her way to spend her July 1st holiday (Canada Day, eh?) with Joji and Romy.  Here are some pictures shared by Joji:

Bing's Visit With The Northeast Group

July 12, 2009 - "Manhattan, my favorite city, was where I spent the 4th of July holiday. I made sure I met with the Northeast group to poke about the next USA Reunion. We met on Thursday @ 8:30p. Friday was the official holiday, so it was no worry about work the next day. Rey & Mel Protacio met me at my hotel in Times Square. We went to the restaurant across it called Junior’s Restaurant, in the theater district. (They have a delicious mousse/cheesecake yum. I have to go back there for sure). We had perfect seats, so we saw all the activities on the (45th) street & were technically part of the scene. Times Square is a bustling place, full of high energy. That’s just how I like ‘hem - upbeat & positive!

Mike & Grace Mendonez arrived shortly from a long drive from Long Island. Then, Andring Maranan came, who was pretty busy that same week entertaining his college chums who were in town for a college reunion. But he chose to stay with us instead. What a friend! Then, Joey Bote came straight from work. We started talking about the next reunion, which they’ll be hosting. We thought 2012 was too far. 2011 would be ideal, but they don’t want to compete with Manila. The next best thing is next year, 2010. However, summer is expensive in NY (actually pretty much all year round). They thought October, with a holiday in it, would be better. Air fares will be a bit cheaper and it’ll be cooler. So, the date was set - October 8, 9 & 10. More details will follow as it unfolds. I said I was not going to help. But the deeper camaraderie that has developed and grown from the May reunion is hard to turn away from. They have asked for my help and I am obliging;) . " - Bing Macavinta

on the death of her husband

May 16, 2009 - Our condolence to our batchmate Dr. Rosaline Sagles Bautista, on the death of her husband, Eddie last May 5, 2009.  His remains were laid to rest last May 10, 2009.  Rosaline was in  Section C in high school, together with Josie Larida Bacud.  We received the news about the death of Rosaline's husband thru Josie, but she has no details as to the cause of death.  She however shared that for the past years Rosaline had been taking care of her husband  who was suffering from some severe back problem.    She has also been taking care of her ailing Mom.  Let us all pray for the eternal repose of the soul of Eddie Bautista.  Let us also pray for Rosaline and their children, that God will give them the strength to cope during this trying moment in their lives.

USTHS'68 Northeastern Reunion

April 4, 2009 - Another annual USTHS'68 Northeastern reunion was held last March 28, 2009, Saturday.  This transpired in Andring Maranan's elegant neo-classic home in Queens, NY. This year is a big welcome for our batch mates, Edmond Lim and his wife Sally, Eddie Villarin and Jerry Ongsiako.
There were ten (10) of us who made it. Jolly Canlas who drove for three hours from Bethlehem, Pa. (wow!!!), from New Jersey - Edmond Lim and wife Sally, Rey Protacio and Imelda, Tim Mendonez and Jossie, Fred Andes and Sol and Ed Villarin whose wife is in the Philippines taking care of her mother. From New York, of course our great host for this year Andring Maranan, Mike Mendonez and wife Grace with her amiable sister Girlie, Joey Bote and Jerry Ongsiako.
For our dinner menu we had pancit palabok kaldereta, morcon, fried chicken with stuffing , tokwa’t baboy, kilawin, and ginataang langka and various desserts such as biko, cassava, mocha cake and cream puff . Joey provided the unlimited supply of cognac XO as in the previous year.
After dinner, our host Andring played soft music from his grand piano. This was followed by discussions of the agenda/activities for the coming Las Vegas Grand Reunion and spent reminiscing the good old high school days till a little after 12 midnight. It was another very memorable get together and hopefully many more to follow.
We missed the company of those who were not able to make it this year because of prior commitments but surely we'll see them in our next gathering.
We look forward to connecting with the other USTHS'68 Chapters this coming May reunion.  -  Rey Protacio,Tim Mendonez and Andring Maranan

Tribute to Ricky Yatco

March 24, 2009 -  Batch'68 paid tribute to our beloved batchmate Ricky Yatco, by attending the 9th day novena prayer and mass held last March 23, 2009 at the Sta. Teresita Parish Church, in Mayon Quezon City.  Around 35 batchmates attended.  After the mass, a salu-salo was held at Ricky's residence, catered by Via Mare.  We would like to acknowledge the generosity of our batchmates led by Odette Wallace, John Tan and Caloy Corsiga, for shouldering most of the expense for the catering, in excess of the donations made by batchmates who were able to attend.

 A number of batchmates, who were all teary-eyed shared their heartwarming stories about Ricky.  Jun Tullao started the ball rolling by recounting how he was able to connect with Batch'68 thru Ricky's constant invitations.  Odette Wallace and Bebet Gillera reminisced the many evenings they spent at Ricky's place and how they complained of going up the flight of stairs to reach the top floor where they usually held their gatherings cum meetings.  Ricky promised that when Batch'68 members are too old to climb the stairs, he will install an elevator for them.  However, just to accommodate the needs of his batchmates, Ricky renovated his entire garage and made it the official meeting place of the batch.   The original Mayon boys - Jimmy Guieb, Manuel Manuel and Jimmy Tan shared with the group how they started as a small group of Batch'68 boys hanging out with Ricky almost every week, enjoying each other's company and at the same time having their drinking (juice lang daw according to Jimmy G.) sessions.  Eventually, to formally organize the Batch'68, they agreed to let the girls in (Odette, Bebet, Tessa, Baby, etc.), which led to the holding of the coral anniversary in 2003.  Ruby Espiritu also acknowledged that just like Benny Guidote, it was also thru the efforts of Ricky that she was found by Batch'68.  Danny R. shared how after a misunderstanding, he was blessed to be able to make peace with Ricky during his last days.  Boy Gabriel, a very close friend of Ricky since their elementary days, revealed that he was the one who introduced Ricky to Eppie.  Don Mejia also said that with Ricky's death, the batch has lost a pillar of strength and generosity.  He also thanked Eppie, who together with Ricky, opened their home for Batch'68, which was the venue for various gatherings including welcoming balikbayan batchmates.  Eppie assured the batch that Batch'68 will continue to be welcome in their home.  After the tributes to Ricky, a short photo slideshow showing Ricky with Batch'68 was shown.

It was a pleasant surprise to find Virginia "Ginny" Braganza, who is married to the elder brother of Ricky, Rey Yatco (USTHS Batch'64).  Ginny and her husband Rey were overwhelmed by the outpouring of love for Ricky by Batch'68 and thanked everyone for their support.  He recounted that whenever he and Ricky got the chance to talk, Ricky will always tell him about the many activities of our batch and how touched he was by the generosity and caring shown by our batchmates to Benny Guidote.

Before the evening ended, plans were made for a summer outing at the vacation house of Emma Ruivivar in Punta Fuego on April 18.  We will publish the details once they are finalized.

We are sharing with you the photo slideshow Tribute to Ricky and the pictures taken during the 9th day Novena Mass and Salu-salo.

9th Day Mass Offering for Ricky Yatco

March 22, 2009 - On Monday, March 23,2009 at 5.30pm and onwards, we shall have the 9th day "Padasal" for Ricky Yatco at Santa Teresita Church,  right beside the residence of Ricky at 132 Mayon St., Quezon City  There will be a 6 p.m. Mass.  After the mass, we shall honor Ricky with a "salu-salo" catered by Via Mare, in Ricky's residence.

 If you will recall, way back in 2003 after we have celebrated our 35th anniversary, Ricky was elected as Chairman of the Batch'68 Alumni Association in recognition of his efforts in bringing the batch together.  His generosity in opening his home to our batch meetings and get-togethers cannot be equaled.  He inspired everyone to give 101% for our batch.  He was also instrumental in finding our late batchmate, Benny Guidote, and exerted all efforts to give the needed assistance for Benny. 

Let us therefore take this opportunity to pay tribute to our beloved batchmate Ricky Yatco, and give him the much-deserved recognition for all his efforts for our batch.
