towel on shoulders at the center of this photo). I just can't remember exactly if it was
Ariel Pangilinan(on white shirt) or me(G...eorge Palaganas) who put that V-sign on top of the
head of Regino Reña(on blue shirt but actually he was wearing green shirt during the field
trip at MakBan Geothermal Plant in Laguna, it just appeared blue on the photo).

Jose "Edgar" Dela Cruz Profile at http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1772184040&ref=ts

From George Palaganas: Actually Edgar, you are not exactly the president of the batch since the batch is composed
of regular students like both of us ...
and repeaters(6 years or more in a 5 year curriculum). You are the president of
Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineering (IIEE)School Chapter Fifth Year Level(a scho...ol club/organization)
and I was the Vice-President. You have won over me by 3 votes or something on the presidential seat but as vice-president, I was miles
ahead of my opponent in an election supervised by IIEE Adviser Engr. Noel S. Pasion. Since the IIEE School Chapter
coordinates all activities pertaining to Electrical Engineering in the university including the EE Field Trips and Seminars,
you were tasked to do the photo shoots. It's nice to have a memory recall once in awhile. :-)
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=31199239&id=1427450153

From Edgar de la Cruz: i wasthe one taking the photos, if you remember.... hi george!
4 hours ago

From George Palaganas: I can't exactly recall now...LOL! it's been 19 years... a baby at that time will have his own babies today... I thought the camera was Olive...'s... do you have other photos of the field trip?
about an hour ago

From George Palaganas: The camera was Olivia Serrano's, right? and you just volunteered to take the pictures. I recall now, when you said, "Ako naman!"(Hey! Can I have my turn?)... LOL!
55 minutes ago

From Edgar de la Cruz: haha... you're funny george. But, no. I was the pres of that batch so one of my "official" functions was to take photos. Also after each visit I was with Enr. Passion filling out forms or signing papers. You can ask Dante River or Arthur Lenin. If the camera was Olive's I can't recall because there were 4 or 5 of them. Good night George.
39 minutes ago

From George Palaganas: Yah... remember that I am the Vice-President of that batch.... and if you can't recall it properly(the camera), I can not blame you for it's been a long time... do you have still contact with Elmer?

Hi Jess! Greetings of peace and joy! Aren’t you going to greet me too on my birthday? I am exactly 37 years old today! Life is so fast we can’t miss what we’re soakin’. I appreciate the two pictures you sent below. I was almost crying for I got an exact semile. Regarding Cindy’s pictures, I can’t remember any except the one on the lobby with four us, you, Dante Sumaoang, Nilo Flores and I. The four of us are on an old Cindy’s orange uniform with the three of you ,visor cap on, while I got my head gear on my hand. The backdrop was a modern art blown up picture of blue and red paint with two giant brushes and the huge picture was neatly framed on the wall.

I have plenty of pictures spread all over the net. Obsession is a perfume and it’s weird I have also rented a car in Oslo. Calgary reports me on a bad AVIS car wreck and whoever reported that, dapat ihulog sa mga bangin don. Maybe because directly from the plane, I went straight to Richmond Hospital in Richmond,British Columbia. And I took my Westjet flight from Calgary under a government program called Project Isabela . Obviously it’s from that notion where they base those rumors. LOL.

Jess, I am sending you some postcards on regular mail so where can I drop my mails now? You can write regular mails to me at 846 Aurora Boulevard, Kaunlaran 1109 Cubao, Quezon City. You must be amazed. The last time we have seen each other is at the Metrostar train station last year. As what I told you, I am just living around the corner. And it’s sad we have very little time to talk.

Alright, so keep on writing to me and I’ll be keeping in touch with you. Iggy has still to respond to my e-mails. Has he sent you already any?

It’s me,
George C. Palaganas

Hi, Jess! I am glad you have leisure times on the chesspark in your area for that’s a great thing to do. I know how you are very fond of chess and I can still recall how you and Iggy beat everyone to the hilt on that game. It’s like playing crib and you end-up as skunk, that’s what everyone feels everytime they play the game with the two of you. That area of your’s is similar to Granville Island’s in Vancouver where the show is mostly Asian revelry. If you will click the hypertext you will see that they have pictures but it wasn’t the same as the Granville Island in the British Columbia that I have been. And the boats are not also on that area but they are all clustered in the Kerrisdale area of the Hudson River.Well, there are too many discrepancies like from below, Granville Bridge looks very much different.There is another area near Main Street in Vancouver called Chinatown where similar asian events take place but when I was there it’s their version of Tin Pan Alley called ROBSON St. is what I love the most and it’s where I hang around most of the time. It’s close to cinemas, and their public library.(Click Hypertext for pictures)It’s also close to Stanley Park.

I am planning to return there as an immigrant in a few years time. I am puzzled by the numbers you gave. (See attached e-mails) Is it (0064)021-079-2039 or 03-339-6077 ?
Keep in touch!

I’ll give you a ring anyday now so expect it my friend….reverse charge ha? Ngek! I am just kidding. Anyway Iggy(Dante Rivera) send me an e-mail too. Georgie was never blurted by Dante Sumaoang before, but it’s you who oftentimes call me that then.NGEK! Sumaoang calls me Budsky! Your group(Rivera, Sumaoang, Tubay, Bumagat,etc.) is my second “cliche” in college after the “Waiting to Exhale” group of Joseph Dela Cruz, Harry Alimurong, Ramil Lambinoand I. And after your group was the veterans group of Francis Bunagan, Rafael Yumul, Regino Reña, John Aquino, etc. Yah, it’s all now but reminiscing… reminiscing… okay see you around the information highway and until the next CHICKA!

Pare Dante Rivera is trying his luck too. He’s been preparing his papers so he can come here hopefully sooner. I bet you are also in contact with him?

My wife and kids are still there in the Philippines. And it’s going terribly harder for me as each day passes by. I can get them now but I still have to provide a house for them. So that means saving, savingg, savinggg…

I’ll be preparing a litany of goodies of New Zealand so you can know what it is to be like here.

Ola! Amigo! What a surprise, Jess! Missing you so much on the net…. It must be busy period for you in Christchurch. I have sent you a ready Yahoo Messenger Account automatically connected to my manilascooltalk account. In case you need a reminder, here are the details…

Your account on Yahoo!

USERNAME: jesstubayofchristchurch
PASSWORD:********

You can now log-on to the account and change your account settings and password.

I got a voice mail message for you on it,so take your time to open the account.

Yah! I remember Eddie Macadangdang. He was my batchmate on the board exam in 1993 together with “Kimpoy”,Ariel Catacutan,Noel Patacsil, and the youngest brother of Ms.Joy Alamo-Viuya. I was supposed to take the board exam with the you,Iggy, Raffy and the rest of our ka-batch but I chickened-out on examination day. Absent was the entry on my attendance card. So I re-registered to take the exam a year later. But did you know that there is no need to pay registration dues for a re-registration. Yah! I never know that until I was on it, myself. It was 1993 pa, nung nagkita tayo sa Calamba, where you are working with a,what’s that again,is that a Korean company in Mayapa, while I teach on nearby Pansol, LETRAN Calamba. I remember Eddie and his plans to migrate in Canada at that time.He used to talk about it when he was staying in Sampaloc area during his board review while what I did was a self-review.

Regarding Iggy, no wonder no one is responding on his “abandoned” e-addie. Nasa Qatar na pala. Give my regards to him okay and send me his new “communication lines” if you have them.

Until next mail.

Happy Birthday!!! they always say: Better late than never..

i am happy that one of our friend in college has communicated to us once again. it 's really a long while since we parted on that graduation day and i think i have not seen you since then.

Well, it seems that you are enjoying your life. How many kids do you have now? What work do you do? are you still teaching computer?

I am working in Pangasinan right now, Urdaneta in particular as an employee of a water pump business. it's quite ok.

by the way you have mention of Nilo flores. He is in Malaysia right now and you might be interested in getting his contact no. there. here is the no: +60165454901.

i have attached a family picture. it's not updated though. i already have 3 sons. the last one is born last September 29, 2005 and i have not taken a picture of him in my computer.

Till next time. have a nice day....

best regards,

dante

PS. I will be in Manila on the 26th of October to fetch our Boss at the airport around 2pm. i have the time to visit your place if you are there or we can just set a place and time to see each other, if it's ok with you...

Here are some of my pictures. Not as “dead serious” as your poses are. Just some simple look at the camera.

At work. In the office.

In my room at the house where I live.

I terribly miss home. It’s good you exerted the effort to contact me. After work, I’ve got nothing to do anymore. But even if I’m at work, I still can find time to open my emails regularly.

Hi Jess! It's nice to hear from you again. I am glad to hear another "howdi" from you. Hmmm... Regarding that song.... Seals and Crofts "You've got a friend", yah! I think we have gone into fiddling that in one of our guitar jamming sessions in the boarding rooms we had back in college, January's place I believe. Send in the Clowns by Frank Sinatra is one of my favorites alright, but it was my Auntie Shirley who can send you spine tingling sensations if you hear her sing it. Her contemporaries will always exclaim, "Uy! Si Shirley!" But with my "old voice", ngek! LOL.
Actually, what I can render on the guitar is a poor version of Debbie Gibson's No More Rhymes. No more, no less. Ngek!

Ditto!

How’dy buddy!?

“Winter, spring, summer or fall..
All you’ve got to do is call..”

Still remember that song? We’ve used to play on the guitar- and you frequently play “Send in the Clowns?”.

Yea, there are lots of contrasts in the world. It’s pretty hot in one place, cool and humid in another. Just like people. Each has its own peculiar characteristics that makes him different from all the rest. And I just love this place. Not much snow though. And not much searing sun. Just a good balance in between.

I ride to work. I have my 49cc scooter. Handy and economical. I’ll still be buying my car in December. I’ll have enough money by then. For now, I’m stuck in this little wee bike.

I can get my family anytime now but my problem is the house. I don’t want to be renting with them bec that would spell trouble for me. I’ll try to produce the house first, then get them, then apply for permanent residency. I can apply residency now but I don’t want them be left behind. I hope I can produce that enough money to secure a house for them so then it would not be that difficult to live here.

Right now, they’re enjoying the good exchange rate for the money I’m sending them. It’s far better than what I’ve been getting while I was still there in the Philippines. I can make the 2months salary I am receiving there in the Philippines as a pressured supervisor (6days work) to just a week’s pay (5days work) as an electrician here. That’s what I’m trying to tell myself when homesickness gulp me up. It’s worth the sacrifice. It’s hard but it’s harder to live on just break-even. As we say it- isang kahig, isang tuka. No more, no less. I want better than that. I surely want to have my own car (which I can never produce in the Philippines even though we, couple are working together). That’s just very difficult to do. Unless- out of the blue- somebody gives us what we want. Or I can find a P10M check with my name written on it- which is ridiculously impossible! So here I am. Trying to make up for the “lost time” I did. And I’m enjoying it.

There’s more to life though other than money. It’s the satisfaction and joy behind life’s imperfections. I try to be balanced every time all the time.

The numbers are 0064-3-3396077 for my landphone and 0064-21-079-2039 for my mobile.

So till next my friend..

Hi Jess! How was your day? I know it's almost spring time in NZ and it's the time when the snow melts and the greens reappears. I know how it is to stay in a cold country Jess, for I have been into one(Canada) myself. But your season right now is the opposite of what they have there for it is fall time in the North American West. You should be glad since the problem of driving in snow will soon be over. Goodbye to snow tires and you can go on jogging and strolling again. The problem with snow is when it rains after the ice. That's the time you get a 'slush' on the road and it's too slippery to walk. Do you drive on your way to work, Jess, or you just commute? Have you been into some skiing or skating (toboganning) around? For these are just the outdoor things you can do during winter. How about shovelling snows in your carport and driveway? Are you experiencing them too. When I was in Canada , I fight off winter chills and winter depression by taking plenty of chocolates. And of course, use the home computer to reserve books in the Main library(VPL) and wait for the phone to ring saying the books are now ready for pick-up in the branch(Marpole) which is just a couple of blocks from the corner. And gobble up the books within the day while baking rotini(pasta) and pizza on the self-clean oven. Well, there goes the winter routine. And once in while go to skating rinks, where they have skates available for rent and also watch the latest Roger's Cable can offer. You see, very rarely people stay outdoors during winter. And Winter Solstice can be very uncomfortable since daytime are shorter than during regular season. So, that is, it is nighttime before four p.m. You just go out only to do the groceries and nothing else. It's the time when most of the residents in the area where I have been leave there homes and go on long holidays. They head for the "hotter" vacation spots like Florida, Cancun or Europe. But definitely I had a lot of fun on summer. Endless picnics, beach frolicking in Kitsilano and Jericho and Wreck Beach, bicycling in the whole of Van from Marpole to Downtown taking the Arbutus route and stay in Stanley Park the whole day. Trainspotting at English Bay, stroll in Robson and watch beautiful faces....it's like you died and went to heaven. British Columbia is indeed beautiful and you'll say there is nowhere in the planet I would want to stay but here.

How about your family Jess? Noemi and your kids? When are you going to 'get' them there? Does NZ have an immigrant program for their foreign workers?

Until then and God bless.

It's me,
GEORGE PALAGANAS

Well, I might have lost track of it anyway but yeah, I think we often call you Georgie then. I never expected to come to New Zealand. In fact, my first choice was Canada, second was USA (or vice versa?!), next was Australia and then UK. But how did I end up here? I honestly don’t know. Things had just happened so fast that all of a sudden my environment changed and then all I can say to myself is- “It’s good to dream- and work it out.” It’s good to wake up to a very fresh, cold air and enjoy the sun. Most houses have glass walls and sunrooms. Since the whole house floor is almost carpeted, I can just sit or lay down by the wall of my room and taste the sunshine as I ponder the day’s wonders (and what the heck am I doing here!!?!?!).

Know what- New Zealand is pare Dante’s first choice and he told me that he almost migrated before we met again after 10years?! And I’m throwing that back to him as a challenge. He first became interested here and now, he’s still there and I’m already here. Ironically funny?!

Kiwi’s are not that good in chess though. There are Chinese guys who are very good at it. It’s just one of the many recreational activities they have in here.

It’s spring time here and gettin hotter now. But it’s not as hot as in the Philippines though. We can still bathe comfortably in the sun though it’s already 12noon. And long days are here as well. There is still sunshine until 8pm. It’ll just begin to darken around 20 past 8. They’re telling me it’ll even be longer days in summer (which is by December to February) when the sun shines until 11pm.

By the way, if you really wanted to call me, I think you should make it around 8am Manila time. It will be about 1pm here. I’ll be relaxin and gettin ready for work by then.

Alright my friend, til next..

Hi, Jess! I am glad you have leisure times on the chesspark in your area for that's a great thing to do. I know how you are very fond of chess and I can still recall how you and Iggy beat everyone to the hilt on that game. It's like playing crib and you end-up as skunk, that's what everyone feels everytime they play the game with the two of you. That area of your's is similar to Granville Island's in Vancouver where the show is mostly Asian revelry. If you will click the hypertext you will see that they have pictures but it wasn't the same as the Granville Island in the British Columbia that I have been. And the boats are not also on that area but they are all clustered in the Kerrisdale area of the Hudson River.Well, there are too many discrepancies like from below, Granville Bridge looks very much different.There is another area near Main Street in Vancouver called Chinatown where similar asian events take place but when I was there it's their version of Tin Pan Alley called ROBSON St. is what I love the most and it's where I hang around most of the time. It's close to cinemas, and their public library.(Click Hypertext for pictures)It's also close to Stanley Park.

I am planning to return there as an immigrant in a few years time. I am puzzled by the numbers you gave. (See attached e-mails) Is it (0064)021-079-2039 or 03-339-6077 ?
Keep in touch!

It's a good thing you have everything in place and the life you are living now is great as you deserve it. And I know too that you miss your family here in the Philippines a lot. I'll give you a ring anyday now so expect it my friend....reverse charge ha? Ngek! I am just kidding. Anyway Iggy(Dante Rivera) send me an e-mail too. Georgie was never blurted by Dante Sumaoang before, but it's you who oftentimes call me that then.NGEK! Sumaoang calls me Budsky! Your group(Rivera, Sumaoang, Tubay, Bumagat,etc.) is my second "cliche" in college after the "Waiting to Exhale" group of Joseph Dela Cruz, Harry Alimurong, Ramil Lambinoand I. And after your group was the veterans group of Francis Bunagan, Rafael Yumul, Regino Reña, John Aquino, etc. Yah, it's all now but reminiscing... reminiscing... okay see you around the information highway and until the next CHICKA!

It's me,
GEORGE C. PALAGANAS

Hello buddy!! How are you?! This is a surprising thing from you! So you’ve changed you’re name??? Is that for real now? And your website is cool, man- just like your new name… Hmmmmnn.. So what are you doing right now?? Are you married or still single or just decided to live alone??!

Pare Dante Rivera is trying his luck too. He’s been preparing his papers so he can come here hopefully sooner. I bet you are also in contact with him?

My wife and kids are still there in the Philippines. And it’s going terribly harder for me as each day passes by. I can get them now but I still have to provide a house for them. So that means saving, savingg, savinggg…

I’ll be preparing a litany of goodies of New Zealand so you can know what it is to be like here.

Til next my friend.. Keep in touch..

Just some NZ things for your info-laden mind…

So you’ve concentrated in writing now?? And as I see it, I think you’re enjoying it more than I can imagine. So what made you decide to pursue that career? It’s really been an interesting “variation” of personality from you. You continue to surprise me as well. Even your voice, it’s very much different now. I think it is- yeah. What do you fancy as of now? I am really amazed by your “web of mysteries” in there- just like a bolt from the blue- just like your le quant..?? (does it dicotomy??? I myself is a bit puzzled..) Anyway, what a turn-around Georgie (as what Dante Sumaoang usually call you before) you are now. (At least as far I have known you- or did I really??). I emailed your webpage to pare Dante Rivera so he can contact you as well. Will that be alright?? By the way, my landphone is 03-339-6077. I am usually at home around 2am to 2pm. But I’m usually fast asleep until around 11am. My shift is on twilight- from 3:20pm to 11:20pm. Do some 2-3 hrs OT everyday for 5 days. (oh my- electrician jobs here are very easy… at least for me..). Go out every Saturday. Play chess with Kiwis and other non-pakeha at the Cathedral Square. Our chessboard is on the ground- a square is at least 1.5ft on the sides. The chess pieces are very big that you cant lift and move them with just one hand. They are quite heavy and holding them with two hands makes your life easier. To give you an idea- the pawns are slightly above knee height. The towering kings are approximately up to my navel. Or higher. And munching my souvlaki (a Greek food) while watching a game.. There are public performers at the square as well that after each performance or play they do- they ask for “donation” if you enjoyed their antiques. If you’re bored, you should still give because according to the performer, there’s no point in going home with both of you disappointed(!!).

Right- so that’s it for now, my friend.. I hope I you will visit me one time here.. Keep in touch..

JES (they pronounce my name as “JIS” and spell it with just one S. Funny, exclusively Kiwi accent)
