Holiday Photos from UP Ibalon & Friends Part II

January 7, 2009

The Nideas and Enojados

The cold new year’s eve did not deter Atty. Allen Nidea and better-half Joji to visit Drs. Augusto & Marietta Mesia in Queens, New York. Together with elder sister Lena Nidea, the duo brought delicious native cuisine plus bosom friends Dr. Renato Enojado, his wife the former Ms. Susie Azur (who proved to be a good cook as well,) and their two children.

The clock ticked fast for the bright ball and confettis of Times Square, Manhattan to fall right on the TV screen. Sans firecrackers, the group enjoyed the season’s blessed food, a bottle of champagne, some singing, and laughter to usher in the hope and joy of the new year.

AdenU-CSIHS’73 Encuentro in California and Naga City

During the holidays, Emy, Tinn, Marilen, Gene, Sammy and Dick made the Ateneo-Colegio de Sta Isabel HS’73 (Aden-CSI HS’73) alive again. A mini-reunion during Atty. D. Perez’ visit in the West coast had them meeting at Tequila Jacks, Long Beach, California before Christmas. It was just right to set aside the nostalgia of yesteryears and savor the warm company of old friends.

In September 2008, the grand reunion held in Naga City had been a flashpoint of fond recollections for the boys and girls of ’73 who came in blue to strengthen bonds, share memories, and re-ignite old friendships. Lovely CSI dames like Mary Ann Pelagio-Sayoc, Maricar Imperial, Marive Roco, Lillian Ragragio-Bolivar, Ofie Altarejos, and Girlie Badiola belted songs which made everyone feel it was springtime all over again.
