40 years ago, Dear Teachers

Thank you for coming over, batchmates. Here are more of Day 1.

The program for the Ruby Jubilarians accorded former teachers special honor by calling them on stage to receive tokens of appreciation. Batch President, Roger Jumuad, led the recognition ceremony.  

Batch representatives, Angie Geronimo-Tuale, Lawrence Ledesma and Eve Sison handed the tokens to each one of them. 

Maam Amelia Goroy, look at the camera, Maam.

The day didn't end after the recognition of our former teachers. There were still plenty of time for photo ops. Everybody was beaming with joy. Even the cameras shook in excitement that I had to reject many shots.

Here... see more photos of BCC High School Batch '77 alumni enjoying the fun. Laughter filled the air. It was just so nice to see each other again!

Somebody took a photo of these pretty ladies up on stage while the program was going on.  Regina Gayapa, Cheryl Verde-Runatay, Cherry Pie Lino-Sermonia and Lory Ann Padilla. 

This time with Doreen Coriana. 

Math and Algebra teacher, Miss Alising and Geometry teacher, Miss Patalagsa

Teachers missing each other.

Teachers missing their students. Students missing their teachers. 
Isn't that a classic example of M. U. (mutual understanding)!!?? 

Isn't it obvious, I couldn't decide which pose to post. Then post both. That's exactly what I did!
Hidlaw gid si Lory Ann kay Ms. Goroy ba!

Libertad Patalagsa: "Eve, tan-awon ta bi kon dumduman ya ka?"
Eve Tallafer-Sison: "Si Miss Patalagsa ay waay na kadumdum sa akon ah!
Doreen Coriana: "Maam, karon lang kamo himutaray, smile anay abi!"
Miss Alising: "Sin-o ni gani man?"

Miss Alising: "Day, sin-o ka gani ya?"
Eve Tallafer-Sison: "Baw, Maam, waay ka na gid ya kadumdum sa akon haw? Ti abi himutari ako maayo."

Miss Alising: "Hoy Eva, ikaw ni gali? Ay ahay ah... waay na ko kakilala ba."
Miss Patalagsa: "Ano abi kay nag gwapa sya!" 
Eve: "Tuod, Maam? Thank you gid ha!" (Buot nya silingon, law-ay gali ko sang una. Sige lang ah,              basi sang una waay pa sya ga-antepara.) 

Baw ah, nami lang bangirit ni Nida! 

Jocelyn Jaleco-Camemo: "Maam Alising, Maam, bugtaw anay. Lantaw anay kon sin-o ni sa tubang mo."
Elsa Buenaflor: "Baw aga pa ni nagtulog si Maam Alising man? Nagpulaw guro kagab-i ay!"

Miss Alising: "Hoy, Cherry Pie Lino, ikaw na? Ay, Day, ka-cute gid ya sa imo gihapon no?"
Jocelyn: "Ay ti kanami no kay kadumdom pa man gali si Maam kay Pie."

Miss Alising: "Ay sus, Doreen, nakibot man ta sa imo man!"
Miss Patalagsa: "Doreen, isul-isol man to diotay, ay! Takpan mo na guya ko!"

MacRey: "Selfie ta anay bi!"

Libertad: "Kagutok man ni man?"

Ms. Patalagsa: "Wait anay, di pa ko ready bala!"

Thank you, dear teachers, because what you have written on the blackboard of our lives, nothing could ever erase. Like candles, you consumed yourselves to light our way.
