Clan of 99’s Get Together & Mini Reunion Series

I was so blessed with friends and this year was awesome because I was able to create little bonds, or some sort of mini reunions to my high school friends, classmates and batch mates. I can say that I did not receive this kind of treatment before during elementary and high school days with them but I feel more important to them compared before. In our high school yearbook they quote me as “The sleeping giant and a silent Pal that used to obey to anyone” not exactly but the thought is something like that and that characteristic of mine is still true today and even more better.

Thanks to Mark Zuckerberg‘s Facebook, his number one social networking site keeps us updated and reunited to our  long-lost family or friends and helped communication as easy as a piece of cake. Due to the following reasons, as a Security Engineer my life revolves around Information Technology, Virus Threats, new gadgets, electronic machines etc. plus the Internet. I’m almost online 24/7 because of the nature of my work and for that I can keep my friends updated by creating Facebook Group Page (HRA Class of 99) my classmates call it Clan of 99 and indeed a family for us. Having said that, I became the POC (Point of Contact) on this page organizing mini reunions, get together, events etc. The biggest achievement of this group page so far is to finding our classmates in the blogosphere and on the other side of the globe.

I don’t know when and where is the first get together they had but on the picture below is the first get together that I attended with them ever. This year, the said get together were hosted by Jaja with Jen, Kitz, yours truly and their plus ones or should I say Significant Others at one of the elegant bars in Thomas Morato, QC. where a Live Band playing old and new songs, you can request if you want also. (Can’t remember the name of the bar, sorry I’m bad in remembering places lol).

Show your braces ladies. 🙂

Class Picture lol!

After a couple of months Mike Joe text me that Coca Cola Bottlers Inc. his company will held an event in Araneta, Cubao, I think it’s there Annual Sales Convention, so I didn’t let the chance passed by so I met him even though I’m tired and sick that day coming from work. We planned to go out but haven’t got a chance, Mike is too busy in their event haha. 😀

Coca Cola Employees all over the country to join convention...

The quick meet up with My Men Mike O

After quite some time, a friend showed after hiding (I’m sorry Bage-San for the word) haha, he finally broke his silence and ready to mingle again so she asked for Jen’s help to organize a get together dinner at Thousand Crane Greenbelt, Makati City. Too bad I had an earlier appointment that day so I said I will catch up. We watched PBA Games in Araneta  Coliseum at around 5pm then the dinner date set to 7pm so I missed the 2nd Game (Ginebra vs RedBull). I was way too late because I lost finding the said restaurant, well my navigation skills didn’t work this time, thanks to Bage for telling me the directions haha.

Don't you know that on the left side of this table when we go out, John Prats pig out with his friends.

After my first Shabu-Shabu experience ever, yeah you heard it right, its my first time to dine on this kind of place haha, we agreed to go for a Karaoke Sessions but Center Stage and near KTV’s are fully booked so we decided to look for a place in Metrowalk, guess what happens next, we took a long way going to Ortigas because we took the wrong road haha. At Metrowalk, no KTV available so we just selected an open bar and talked instead.

At Metrowalk

Around October of this year (2011), Denby released a T-Shirt Design and proposed to asked Clan of 99 if they want it, so, operation Tee Shirt Project started. The good news is majority of our classmates wanted it, so I asked who wants it. One who wants it is Michael Angelo Quintana from Italy and will be arriving here in the Philippines and will be staying for a week so he asked me a favor if I can rush the shirt printing for him so I did and he’s the one who got the shirt other than me. According to him he liked the design most likely the Dominican seal. We supposed to meet in Megamall but he compressed his week meeting his family so on his last day before going back to Italy I had to deliver the shirt so I did. I delivered the shirt to him personally in Makati Avenue, Makati City. I had to find the place because I don’t know the way  around in the city. We have a little chit-chat while drinking a bucket of Red Horse Beer the bid goodbye after photo opt.

What's wrong with the shirt that I am wearing? Did you see it? I'm sure you do.

Come November 1st of this year (2011), I went home after 4 years of not observing All Saints Day and I got a chance to do so. I met my classmates at night and drink some booze and reminisce.

Happy Birthday Emongski!

 Then come December 2011, we celebrated Season’s Greetings and T-Shirt Project is 70% complete due to limited communication to the group. Again, I had to deliver ordered shirts personally.
