Surprise… High School Reunion!

Omigosh, I shouldn’t be posting these photos, but what the heck? Anyway, this batch is from the Holy Spirit Academy of Laoag. Year? The year I got married. So I didn’t graduate from HSAL. I had to transfer to another school in Manila because I got kicked out for eloping when I was in third year high. That info sort-of explains why I have adult children☺

Alma (far right in photo) visited Laoag for the first time since graduation.  The Laoag-based former classmates organized this little reunion for her. It was so much fun getting to see each other again. They all looked the same as the last time we were together. With a few added pounds and some wrinkles, but basically the same friends I’ve known and grew up with. We talked about our family life, careers, LOL, our adventures in elementary and high school and the nuns and teachers who we loved and also “hated”.

We missed our other old classmates, though. Most of them are living in other places now.

No big Romy and Michele high school reunion. The potlock party was relaxed… we had great food and a lot of karaoke singing. And endless photo ops, gosh, for their FB accounts.

Now, I’m loving reunions. I wish for a bigger one. I mean, more from this batch.
