A club handover

Upon the invitation of classmate Rose Acoba, I attended RC Makati Legazpi's club hand-over and induction yesterday at Mandarin Oriental Hotel. IPDG Butch and wife Maling were there. Of course Gov. Ato Magadia and wife Vicky; DS Ric dela Torre, other district officials. A number of PDGs were also there -- Govs. Tony Rufino, Sonny Coloma, Guiller Tumangan, Jun Cortez I think.

Among the classmates I saw -- Techie, Yolly, Ana, Barbie, Jo, Julie, Amore, Ces, Jay, Tyrone, and of course, Rose. Letty came late. Did I forget anyone?... I nearly did not recognize Ces, know why? He has a short hair and his beard was not thick!

Lots of Sharing Presidents there (incl. our club Pres. Owe), 3 jampacked tables. They seem to be a tight and happy group. Parang tayo din no'ng bago pa term natin, di ba.

So many other guests, like the koreans (almost 2 tables sila), their sister club from namsan, korea; sister clubs from Marilao, Bulacan and LB Makiling.

RCML Pres. Jun Puno's brother is singer Rico Puno. The latter sang a medley of some of his famous hit songs in the 70s & 80s. The voice and delivery is still there. Though his grin sense of humor is more vulgar this time, kaya enjoy ako, hahaha. For instance, he kidded Pres. Jun's clubmate, Cory Quirino, na "may suso na si cory oh", tawanan ang crowd.

On my way out of the hotel, I chatted with classmate Ces and district officers Fed Sapitan and Sue Sta. Maria. They waited for their cars. I told them I was waiting for my helicopter. Since my helicopter did not come, nag-jeep na lang ako sa buendia.

It's good to be invited in some club handovers and inductions even after our term as club Pres. Salamat uli, Rose.
