It was 1970, but it could have been any year. Elementary days were filled with emotion and excitement: The padaususan sa tabi ng Science Building, the Basyaran, the tuksuan leading to pananaga ng Dulos, the punitan ng damit, the hubuan sa harap ng klase, the tago sa sulok if the bakuna comes, the ngatngat ng kuko if the health inspection team is here or the games of our youth we play, jolens, bimbiw, tubigan, tumbang preso, sipa, piko, trumpo pag recess.

48 years later, we still remember: puppy crushes, the tamban sa klase para magmura (buko), the pansit ni Nanay Kandray, sinanday, dukit, scramble, banana and snowball. The times we live in have changed, but actual things don’t change much, and people don’t either. I think that’s a good thing. Reality doesn’t bite as hard at the 60 year mark, despite what people may anticipate.


The best thing I found in is this reunion is that everyone is really nice, and everyone seems really happy — no matter how many different choices we all made, kahit pa ano ang narating o estado sa buhay. One family. My family. My classmate’s family. And we accepted everyone. Pantay pantay.

We’re no longer judging the big things, now we respect reality and ready to support those who need support. We’ve all made choices and we’re living with the consequences.

We may not remember faces, but almost everyone exclaims to each other, “oy di ka tumatanda, bata pa ring tignan” although he/she maybe referring not to our looks but to the manner we behave. We listened to stories, but most of all as I keep advising “nobody is above anybody here.. ” Fando added, ‘lahat tayo winner sa buhay, sapagkat narito tayo at magkasama, hindi tayo patay.”

Now, seeing each other made us yearn for more years of togetherness. To continue seeing each other, support each other and most of all love each other.

I love Class of ’70.. still looking so Classy at ’60.

Next year again classmates. Hoping to find additional kaklase next year and we are again reliving memories with our adviser, Ma’am Lita Villamor Sarmiento.

God bless us and keep us healthy and able to support others.



“Will you recognize me?
Call my name or walk on by
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down!
Don’t your forget about about me me
Don’t, don’t, don’t..” – Simple Minds



Dr Stephen Covey said: Most of us learn to base our self-worth on comparisons and competition. We think about succeeding in terms of someone else failing–that is, if I win, you lose; or if you win, I lose. ..There is only so much pie to go around, and if you get a big piece, there is less for me; it’s not fair, and I’m going to make sure you don’t get anymore.


Iyan ang mentalidad ng mga Pinoy sa ngayon. Parang bang laging naglalamangan, walang gustong magbigay. Pag me natalo, ayaw tanggapin ang pagkatalo, “pagresbak ko lagot ka.” Pag nanalo naman, belat talo kita.. At sangkatutak na ang sasabihin sa natalo. Sangkatutak na paninira, kulang na lang tadyakan at dikdikin. Ayaw bitiwan ang mental baggage na dala dala.

Ang mga taong may malawak na pangunawa, may edukasyon, may breeding at maka Diyos, matalo o manalo, they see a pie with pieces enough for everyone, at hindi sila nagiisip na malalamangan siya ng iba.

Di na natin matatakasan ang kultura ng paglalaban. Tayo ay isang specie ng namumuhay sa mundo na laging nakikipagtagisan sa kapuwa, ngunit, subalit, datapuwat, pero iba ang pakikipagtagisan na natutuon sa tunay na diwa ng tagisan kesa sa pakikipagtagisang may kasakiman or worse may kabuktutan.

Ang mga taong may paninindigan and who love what they do are competitive. Hindi nila mararating ang tagumpay kung hindi sila nakahanda sa tagisan. However, di nila ginugugol ang kanilang oras at lakas sa mga pandaraya at katusuhan. Hindi nila hinahadlangan ang kompetisyon dahil alam nilang maraming mga larangan ang kayang magexcel ang bawat isa. Kapag mahal mo ang ginagawa mo, kahit na anong husay mo ay hindi mo tatapakan o gagamitin ang ibang tao para ikaw ay makarating sa iyong inaambisyon.

At sila ay magnanimous in victory.

Hindi vindictive. Hindi nagmamayabang.

At higit sa lahat, they inspire and motivate other people.

They are focused to excel.

Not to bash. Not to cuss. Not to create intrigues.

Habang ang wika ay nag-ievolve may mga salita na kanya kanya tayo ng kahulugan. Sometimes gumagawa tayo ng sariling salita na iniaangkop natin sa sitwasyon o nais nating ipahiwatig.

Naalala ko ang kaklase ko noong College, ang tawag niya sa “PENMANSHIP” ay “PERMANSHIP”. Kinocorrect ko siya, pero sabi nya mas tama ang “PERMANSHIP” kaysa sa “PENMANSHIP”.

I asked him, bakit niya nasabi. “Ano ba iyan sa Tagalog?” ang kanyang tanong.

“PIRMA!” wika ko.

“O diba, kaya nga PERMANSHIP, kasi PIRMA nga sa tagalog… kuhang kuha na di ba?” ang pakli niya.

Ewan ko after almost more than 30 years ay ganun pa rin ang alam niya.


Another ay iyong aking barkada noong bata pa ako. Naglalaro kami sa salas ng kanilang bahay ng tawagin siya ng kanyang Tatay.

“Anak, pakilipat mo nga dito sa kusina ang “COMFORTABLE TV” para makapanuod habang nagluluto ang Nanay mo,” utos ng Tatay niya.

Hindi ako nakatiis. Sabi ko baka po “PORTABLE TV”.

Sinagot ako ng “e di ba ang TV na iyan ang magaan at KOMPORTABLENG dalhin kahit saan?” ang kanyang tanong.

“Opo!” ang sagot ko.

“E kaya nga tawag diyan ay COMFORTABLE TV, napakakomportable. Ikaw talaga, nagmamarunong ka pa sa matanda.” ang asik niya sa akin.

Sana ang barkada ko, anak at apo niya ay COMFORTABLE sa panunod ng TV ngayon.

May nakilala akong Manager na kababayan sa isang Construction Company. Noong bisitahin ko siya sa kanyang opisina, he talked about how he became a manager in his company, at kung paano niya pinaangat ang kompanya. He talked highly of himself and even boasted na isang clerk lang siya sa isang government office sa pinas.

He called his pinoy assistant and asked for coffee and I requested water only.

The pinoy assistant came with the coffee and water. Upon sipping the coffee, he angrily called back his assistant and told him: “anong katangahan naman ito, di ba sinabi ko sa iyo gusto ko matamis kape ko, bakit ang pait nito, gusto mo bang pauwiin na kita?”

His assistant meekly asked for apology and was about to get the cup para dagdagan ang asukal, pero tinabig ang kamay nito at minura-mura as in mura talaga.


Sinabihan ko siya na okay na iyon, tama na at baka magdamdam ng husto iyong tao niya. Aayusin naman na ang timpla e. Galit na galit pa rin siya na nagsabing binigyan na nga niya ng trabaho ay di pagbutihin ang pagtatrabaho.

Gusto ko siya payuhan pero sa tingin ko mahirap siyang makinig. Nakatanim na ang arrogance sa dibdib niya at iyong pagmamataas dahil nga sa tingin niya ay dati siyang mababa sa pinas, ngayong narito na siya sa saudi at mataas ang katungkulan ay dapat siyang ituring na amo. Naadopt niya ang master-slave attitude ng mga lumang Arabo.

Di ko na pinatagal ang usapan namin, after 5 minutes nagpaalam na ako. Tinapik ko ang balikat ng pinoy assistant paglabas ko.

By the way, this friend is an active leader sa church dito.

I sent the file for registration ng bago naming product sa aming coordinator. Sinabi ko na iresubmit namin sa kompanya dahil they claim na wala silang natanggap from us, with an instruction na icheck lahat ng documents dahil last year pa iyon naprepare.

Tapos nagprint ako ng isang document para sa updated signature ng meari ng aming kompanya. I left for a meeting sa isang customer and reminded him to have the document signed at ipa-stamp sa Chamber of Commerce.


Kinabukasan, tinanong ko siya kung naprint na niya, yes daw. Tapos kung nasign na, yes daw. Napa-stamp na ba? Hindi pa raw, wala raw pambayad. Sabi ko, e sa Petty Cash? E sa amo natin? Wala raw Petty Cash. Di raw siya nagtanong sa amo namin. Bakit kako di ka nagtanong? Di ko raw sinabi. (Nagstart na kumulo ang dugo ko).

Tiningnan ko ang naprint niya. Ang mga government permits ay last year pa, di niya inupdate. Tinanong ko, bakit last year pa ang mga documents? Sagot niya, e sabi mo iprint ko ang nasa file. Sabi ko, icheck mo dahil last year pa ang mga iyan. Sagot niya nakalimutan ko.

Tanong ko, likas ka ba na tamad? Hindi raw. Di raw niya talaga linya iyon dahil siya daw ay isang expert at specialist sa marketing. Sabi ko, e sinubukan ka nga namin sa sinasabi mong specialist ka, e di ka umobra. Kaya nga pasalamat ka kahit coordinator me trabaho ka, di ka namin pinauwi. Nagalit pa sa akin, sinusunod ko lang naman sinabi mo e. Sinunod mo nga, pero ang di mo sinunod iyong icheck mo, gamitan mo ng isip.

Natanong ko tuloy sarili ko. Katamaran ba ito, o katangahan.

Katangaran at Katamahan.

Tanong ko. Sagot ko.
