the month of flowers seemed to be a truly beautiful and fragrant season for me as i continued communing with my very good high school batchmates/friends.
my going home to bicol last may 3 started it.
after two weeks, i had the chance to bond with them again at chili’s, alabang yesterday.
thanks to peter paul “bong” pelino’s invite for a dinner, i reunited with elvie, med, yep, razi and of course the “host”. except for elvie, i was also with these four gentlemen on september 14, 2012 (see full story at https://wanderingjouster.com/2012/09/14/tribu-oh/). we were together for the same reason – to take some time off to strengthen whatever invisible nexus we have and to have an early “despedida” for bong who’ll leave for his work in abu dhabi. given the opportunity (and budget…hehehehe), i am not that sure if bong would like this to be on regular basis every time he’s on vacation.
at any rate, buhs 86 time, short it may be, was a taste of paradise (not with an ‘F’ :-)) for me!
exaggerated? you should be with us to experience it.
i tell you, we talk about
stuffs stuff which sometimes go beyond one’s comprehension, but would allow you to let out the loudest laugh of your life.
the food on the table would not even matter. simply being near your katribu and listening to their voices would suffice.
this is my reason why i will be punishing myself if i turn down this occasional indulgence.
and mind you, another one is coming up on may 26.
you bet, i wouldn’t be missing this. absence in tribu 86 gathering leaves you no choice but to be the possible favorite topic of the attendees. hahahahahahaha!
