TUIG KANATONG TANAN!
Happy New Year to All!! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas, wherever
you spent it. Maka-ibog jud ang nakapa-uli sa Tanjay - pero for
those of us who were unable to go home, we "managed" to re-create
Paskong Tanjayanon - alegre gihapon! But before we give you another
tsapter-by-tsapter account of the Tanjayanon Christmas Party, here
are a few thoughts to share with each of you.
Having a Newsletter of our own is
already showing some results! Daghan kaayong na-nungha sa Christmas
Party, largely because of the Newsletter kono. May na-nulat pud,
ug may nang-hatag ug amot "bisan lang ug for the Newsletter" kono.
In this issue, we are reprinting a letter from Dr. Delfa Calumpang
Gomez-Dumaran. It's only the beginning, pero it is obvious that
if we have a medium which we can use to communicate with one another
- bisan ug pangumusta lang - dili ta mingawon kaayo, kay duna ma'y
mga balita kabahin natong tanan. So, again and again, we encourage
you to keep in touch - drop us even a postcard - let us know where
you and your family are, unsa'y mga nahitabo, whether happy or sad.
Let us share your happiness (labi na ug maka-da-ug sa Lotto!), sadness,
concerns and worries. Also, let us know if you have moved.
|Mga "teen-agers" naningkamot
gyud intawon nga makat-on sa new line dancing (L- R): Mariane
Allera-Fayssoux, Paulit Salva-Korn, Perla "Falang" Manapol,
Veronica Romero, Caloy Gil, Fern Ann Teves-Cruz, Carmelita
Romero, Paraluman Zerna-Tabuena, Nene Munoz-Velarde, Rosa
Aliermo-Arrieta. (Ang mga bana? Nanago intawon sa garaje -
gui-ampo ang ilang mga asawa.)
Talking of sharing....we
have a number of opportunities for each of us to show that we
still care for those not-too-fortunate Tanjayanons. Read the item
on the Medical , tan-awa ug unsa'y atong mahimo harong maka-tabang
ta, one way or another, and let Pare Braddock know.
Ang mga "New Faces"
we can't possibly lista all those who attended the event, kadto
na lang mga seldom-seen ang atong i-mention, okay? Leading the pack
was Baby Gispert, who was visiting. Her husband, Joaquin Teves,
is now president of Elizalde International in Manila. Ning-tungha
pud si Rosa Aliermo-Arrieta and hubby Edgar. There was Jun Laxina
with wife Precy Torres (anak ning Tio Pelagio Torres), who was bidang-bida
on the piano and the dance floor....Didto pud si Ipay Villegas ug
iyang bana, si Jackie Doromal .... The very gwapa Nene Velarde Dingcong
(anak ning Mally Muñoz) was also a hit on the dance floor.
Gina Villegas-Singh (anak ning Nene Villegas) came with her two
sons - liwat jud sa Lolo's side of the family! Si Carmelita ug si
Nik-nik Romero (mga igso-on ning George), may dalang mga bisita,
wala'y hunong ug bayle .... Glen Teves and Hector Belo enjoyed the
dancing... Si Madette Salva-Bumronpoong dugay ng nawala ni-tungha.
Joe Laguda (anak ning Nanding Laguda, former mayor of La Libertad)
and family came the farthest - all the way from San Diego (pero
kadlawon na nama-uli!) - their pasalubong of a big box of persimon
na-hurot dayon! Last but not least, si Siony Zosa Anderson (anak
ning Chief Zosa) with husband Harold and son, ning- tungha pud...

jud ang Christmas-motif table setting, thanks to the hosts. There
was plenty of lumpia, lechong kawali, pancit, bangus, binakhaw nga
na-hurot dayon (courtesy of Melo Teves), ham, kan-on nga wala'y
dukot, cakes (including a special birthday one for Matsoy Cruz,
bana ning Fern), and...... eng-eng- eng.......bud-bud (courtesy
of the Salva family) ug tsokolati! Ang problema lang kay wala'y
haliging ka-lambosan! Neber mayn - we used the refrigerator handle
- likos lagi! Badingding and Falang were theones to batil the tablea
in the baterol, pero ag boloneo mubo ra
