Winlove was initiated and subsequently inducted as a member of the Beta Sigma Fraternity in 1949, his first year in U.P. I remember his contemporaries: Prospero Crescini, Amorin, Arranz.


According to Winlove, the initiation was held at the Lecture Hall of the College of Education on a Sunday morning. He was asked to stand with outstretched arms imitating the Oblation, without the leaves to cover his private property, for more than two hours. Then he was blind-folded and was asked to wade through "worms". He was that loyal to the fraternity during his heydays because he suffered "emotionally" from the initiation experience.


I joined the Sigma Beta Sorority later upon the invitation of Pat Damasco, Irene Montano, and Santanina Tillah.


Oh those were the days. Memories are our roses in the winter of our lives.

Dear Family and Friends,

A Retirement Party was not something I expected. I was pleasantly surprised and overwhelmed by this thoughtful gesture.

I would like to commend my daughters (Andiee, Jayjay, Kits and Meng), sons-in-law, and grandchildren who conspired with their Mama, to celebrate this milestone of my life and for putting together a Book of Memories -- I feel much appreciated and loved.

THANK YOU...

 

God has been good to the family. I have been fortunate to have had a successful career and to have reached retirement. My children at this stage of their lives are well accomplished and are well on their way to succeed in their chosen professions. With God's blessing and continued guidance, I need not worry of the future - the family legacy is in good hands.

Ike, Ollie and I bumped into each other in Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan, this afternoon. Ike suggested I send the picture to you. I was in RP for the launching of my health book, which was published in the USA the other year. The RP version just came out and it was launched in Marikina; Waterfront Hotel in Lahug, Cebu; and the third was in Talamban at CITE, Cebu City.


I am now in Manila, on our way back to Vegas Monday.

Best wishes,

17 Glorious Years and More to Come..

It was on the 29th of Jan 25, 1996 when I pledged my undying loyalty to become a neophyte of the only Fraternity in the University of the Philippines.

On February 25, 1996, a new batch of the U.P. Brotherhood of Scholars gave birth to Batch 96-A "Bangka".

Together with my Batchka Benjamin Satore Cortel, also a radical thinker, student leader, writer and an activist in the University, we were able to lead the entire studentry in the University to fight for its basic rights: freedom of expression and freedom to organize. The University filed a case against us (Disrespect to the Philippine Flag, Disrespect to Person in Authority, Public Alarm and Scandal) along with 6 other student leaders and 2 Brods namely: Atty. Felipe Ian Anthony Enrique "Macky" Macaldo, Jr. 93-B Kapit-Bisig, then Nationalist Corps Chairperson, and 1st Lt. Ronaldo "Beboy" Suscano 96-B Haligi, former LFS Panay spokeperson. We were steadfast in our principles and fought the case until the end. Eventually, we won the case. It was just my first though. Hahaha! The Fraternity supported us until the end.

To date, I can still picture that static photograph in my cerebrum 17 strong years ago when my Ninong Brod Carter aka "Tebo-Carts" in high school aka "Kicks" to Brods B. Constantino 95-B Kawayan (my tennis mentor and partner, my confidant and my best friend) when he embraced me as a Brod.

It was the beginning..

I miss you Batchka and I love you! Always remember that..

I am a Beta Sigman and Proud of it..

Guess who shopped at Waikele Premium Outlets today?


Brod Volt came to Hawaii for an APEC related conference and had just more than an hour for shopping. The Consul General called me and advised that Sec. Gazmin was on his way to our center to do some shopping with his wife and few friends. I introduced myself first as the GM and then told him "Secretary sir, you may not remember but we met back in 2010 at the Beta Sigma anniversary reception in UP Executive House! He then said "Aba! Brod ko pala ito!" He had only one hour to spare so after the brief welcome, introductions, light banter and picture taking, I left the honorable Secretary to shop!

 

Cheers!

Brods, here's the latest re-connection. Three generations of Betans -- Brod Marcelo Aspiras (UPLB '54), Jim Gonzalvo (UPLB '70) and Ferdz Hallare (UPD '91). In an impromptu get together, 3 Betans got together at Yukai Byuffe a Japanese Buffet and Seafood restaurant in Virginia Beach, VA. With them were Mars wife, Sis Resurrecion and Jim's wife, Teresa. Ferdz was flying solo since his wife is still in Kansas. As expected, a lot of stories trying to find common connections from other brods from the past. Turned out Mars new Jim's aunt and uncle from his previous life while working for the Philippine government in Mindoro and he is godfather to their oldest son. Talk about 6 degrees of separation! Suffice it to say, we three had fun and plan on getting together on a regular basis.

Cheers
