BALIK-TANJAY AFTERMATH . . . . .
NANGA - HAPLA MI
apologies to one and all for the long hiatus! Wala pa ‘mi ma-uli-i from
the after-epeks of our Balik-Tanjay adventure. Mora’g na-balaw jud mi tanan

Fayssoux, Lilian Girasol, Tahum Zerna, Hati Colgrove, Mark Sandiego, Jimmy
Zerna, Marlene Zerna-Robertson, and Braddock. The delegation was later
on joined in by Mayor Arturo and Braddock. The delegation was later on
joined in by Mayor Arturo Regalado, Councilmen Domingo Romero and Lawrence
Teves, Fern Ann Teves-Cruz, Liling Diago-Lao, Marian Allera-Fayssoux, and
the Orcullo’s: Pete, Linda, Michael and Cindy, who brought a lot of Tylenols.
