Celebration of Friendship
INTO THE SCENE - Han Kintanar () - February 14, 2008 - 12:00am

Probably one of the happiest events in our lives is when good old friends gather together after a long time.  We get overwhelmed with extreme emotions as we all reminisce the good and bad times we experienced together.  This was exactly what happened recently when some of my closest buddies from way back high school and college days (when Inner Circle, Bai Disco, Pards and Café Ad were familiar bywords of the party pack) breezed into town to take part in the Sinulog.  As expected, we practically partied every night just like old times except that we have significantly mellowed…from the 4-parties-in-a-row per night, this time, we cuddled together in friends’ houses to catch up with each other and finish where we left off.   

First to plane in from Dubai was our dear friend Sarah Salera who hasn’t changed a bit…still cool and sexy.  A few days after, everybody’s friend Trixie Lebumfacil arrived from California.  Of course, one of Cebu’s best designers in the 80s, Bong Gualberto of the well-patronized Marlo Braun Atelier, had to fly in too from Davao to meet up with Trixie and the whole gang.  You know, days back, when you mention Trixie, there’s got to be her dapper escorts in tow.  True enough, she came in with a handsome bunch in the persons of Dr. Toto Ong-Veloso who is now a very accomplished internist in the States with equally good-looking brother, the former-model-turned-dentist par excellance Dr. Glen Ong-Veloso and Cebu’s “kilabot ng mga kolehiyala” in the 80s, Chad Regner.  

It was indeed a celebration of true friendships. How I wished we could have dragged on the time even for a bit longer to give each other the hugs and kisses we all longed for.  Nevertheless, we all agreed to make it a yearly special.  I am certainly looking forward to the next.

It’s no-holds-barred for this once in a lifetime Valentine’s Day treat so if you haven’t decided yet on where to bring your loved ones tonight, this event is definitely what I will suggest!
