Old time friends, Alumni Homecoming and my hometown Sagay

I have been busy lately catching up with old time high school classmates and friends. On the day of the Melbourne shooting incident, I met up with one of my closest friends in my first year high school. She now lives in Perth and was here in Melbourne on holidays (with hubby on a business trip) for a few days. It has been over 25 years since we last saw each other. I took her to a Chinese restaurant at the Docklands for lunch and we talked and talked and talked for hours. Di matapos-tapos and balitaan at kumustahan. Later we went back to the Grand Hyatt where they were staying and continued our chit-chats at the hotel’s Club Lounge where we were joined by our hubbies. We parted ways at around twelve midnight. Gee we can talk.

Online, another classmate has touched base with me via yahoo messenger. She has been updating me of the whereabouts of our other schoolmates and the upcoming General Alumni Homecoming (held every five years) of our beloved alma mater, Sagay National High School. It’s still about ten months away but hey, I’m counting the days now. The first and last homecoming I have attended was in 1998 but I didn’t last until the night. I got drunk early. I used to be a piss-head. 🙂

I am looking forward to this one. I promised myself I won’t get drunk quickly. Bwahahaha! Not that I can drink a lot now anyway. Kulang na sa praktis. Besides, Shane would be with me so I would have to look after him as it will be his first time to visit my hometown, Sagay City.

Speaking of Sagay City, I am very proud of my birthplace. It has come a long way since becoming a city in 1996. The Sinigayan Festival, which has been merged with the celebration of the annual fiesta is one colorful event that has attracted thousand of visitors, domestic and foreign.
