Dear Classmates,

Attended the homecoming of Batch 77. The festivities kicked off with a mass at 3, merienda cena at almost 5, and their show entitled "An OPM Homecoming" started at around 7 pm. but was worth the wait.

SPCM HS'78 -- our Little Sister batch -- Silver Jubilarians of 2003! Seated (l-r): Lugie Lipumano, Malene Cruz, Cecile Fernandez, Yuyay Lantin, Ms Fortes (CAT), Ssands Suarez, Noela Daleon, Zeny Patag, Belay Alejandro.

They started off with Ivy Violan rendering a completely different version of the second part of the Paulinian Hymn. Then the Jubilarians, including the Goldens, danced the swing joined in.) Then there were also several dances that were rendered by the Ruby and Golden J'S. There were a lot of highlights of the program since they had a lot of guests - Rico J Puno, Marco Sison, Jaya, Hajji Alejandro, Jon Santos and Regine Velasquez. Fantastic presentation of course by Ana Puno and her Maximedia Group. Richard Merck also co-hosted along with Malu Maglutac.

Met up with sina Malene Baron and sina Sandra Suarez of BAtch 78. Their turn next year - our little sisters. Also met some of Sarita's batchmates SPCM HS 1980. Told them that we will be the Pearl Jubilarians when they are the Silver Jubilarians. Of course, my sister Chiqui's batch were there and we totally enjoyed ourselves, especially when Hajji Alejandro (at bottom left with Joji Santos '78, from www.geocities.com/spcm_hs78 ) came out and sang. We started screaming - parang mga colegialas and I just couldn't help it - I told them we had to shout "I love you Hajji!!!" It wouldn't have been complete without it. And we did it three times pa. Jon Santos impersonated Armida Siguion Reyna and he was hilarious. Rico J inserted "....nang tayo'y Paulinians pa." in his song "They way we were." Type kong mag-host din si Richard Merck. Sayang - Pinky was invited to join the cast but she had to beg off.

25 Jan 2002, SPCM HS'77 Grand Reunion, Manila Polo Club. Standing (l-r): Sarah Jo Villaseñor, Tess Festin, Diana Zamora, Ena Tumale, Susan Laurente, Angie Abad and Lyra Lim. Seated: Malou Madamba, Ana Co, Malu Maglutac, Katre Ponce-Enrile, 3, Karen Feliciano, Maritess Santiago and 4. Photo from SPCM HS'77 website. Visit www.geocities.com/spcm_hs77 for more.

Oops! Before I forget, they honored Fr. Reuter during the mass. Say mo, they also got the Ateneo Alumni Glee Club to sing during the mass. Mas matatanda nga lang. Turns out I even knew one of them, Gil Yuzon who is married to a friend Sylvia Yuzon. Mga batch 1960's iyan. Joked him nga that it was also a reunion of Ateneans cuz they occupied one whole table during the merienda.
