[Dr. NOEL “BIBS” CARILO is shown in this photo together with his gracious wife, VERONICA “VEE” CARILO, taken in one of the many out-of-the-country trips that BIBS has to take as a topnotch orthopedist/orthopedic surgeon. BIBS would almost always be jet-setting around the globe attending medical conventions, delivering lectures, etc. BIBS has been President of the K-Ville Townhomes Homeowners’ Association, Inc. (“KVTHA”) for THREE (3) TERMS, for sheer lack of willing and competent residents who would want to be involved in the nitty-gritty of managing/administering the affairs of the K-VILLE TOWNHOMES community. BIBS served too as President of the PHILIPPINE ORTHOPAEDIC ASSOCIATION, INC., an association of Filipino topnotch orthopedist/orthopedic surgeons practicing their specialty medical profession in the whole of the Philippine archipelago.]
From my honest recollection BIBS1 has been PREXY for THRICE,
And in fact, I’ve been PREXY for TWICE;
And BENG2 also for TWICE — it looks “NOT NICE”,
Thus, we need new faces to add variety for some SPICE!
But BIBS has set the record of serving LONGEST,
It is a true show of his UNSELFISHNESS;
For though a topnotch ORTHOPEDIST,
He has lent his precious time; that’s CARE —so SWEETEST.
What I distinctly can truly REMEMBER,
Was when K-VILLE turned water-less once in NOVEMBER;
The water-system abruptly just conked OUT,
And fetching water turned into a BOUT.
But what has truly touched and swept ME,
Seeing BIBS manning the queue, so busy as a BEE;
Rationing such precious water from the truck-CONVEYOR,
Filling up those pails; piled up in seeming lazy LAYER.
‘Twas the first term of BIBS as PREXY,
And he showed real and true HUMILITY;
Though patients at St. Luke’s may have been WAITING,
He manned the queue as water from the truck’s spout kept POURING!
And BIBS really is a true MEDIATOR,
He conciliates those grievances just like a TUTOR;
BIBS would spell out some kind ADVICE,
Those contending parties will then feel so NICE.
And those voters of K-VILLE, I IMPLORE;
If we really need a paternal guide to feel so SECURE;
BIBS will serve to keep as sure in our MOORINGS;
And make us safe to greet our early MORNINGS!
As an ORTHOPEDIST, BIBS is an ACE and HOTSHOT,
In fact, he’s a surgeon so precise like a CLOCK;
He’s even entertaining, as he knows a lot of STARS…
He can perhaps even write some of actresses’ MEMOIRS!
