[GINA is shown in this group photo at right, with that twinkled beam as though half of a smile and half of a smirk (that’s GINA, so mystifying, inexplicable and baffling). Babes Navarro is at left and our jolly and musically-minded UP Law classmate (Evening Section-1979) is at the middle, Romy Legaspi.]
Welcome GINA to our VIBER chat ASSEMBLAGE,
I know that you dislike BANTER, and even PERSIFLAGE…
So, I’ll promise to be so very extra CAUTIOUS;
But in your childhood, ‘twas told, that you’re so PRECOCIOUS!
You’re a scion of the CALLEJA CLAN of ALBAY,
A kinship that’s so noted as CATCHERS IN THE RYE…
By that I mean, your CLAN is so protective of its NAME,
Indeed, your kindred has brought to your CLAN so much FAME!
“Siblings Andres and Salome are the earliest known members of the Calleja clan. Salome Calleja had children with a Monsignor Bishop of the Franciscan order, Gonzalez Dietz, which explains a consistent family trait in the earlier generations, the Castillan nose.”
A search at GOOGLE shows much REVELATION…
A certain, Manuel Calleja Fernandez, did found an INSTITUTION;
‘Twas the Makati Medical Center, a noted HOSPITAL,
That kin of yours, I feel, ought to be placed on a PEDESTAL!
Our LAW Prof Ramon Calleja Fernandez, was similarly MENTIONED,
Am sure that no one in this group would pose a searching QUESTION;
For indeed our Law Prof, did own your BLOOD AFFINITY,
And your kinship with GLORIA DIAZ, am sure is an indubitable VERITY!
By marriage, your clan is related to families of NOTE…
Abella, Aspillera, Diaz, Maronilla, Tuason, and others too long to QUOTE;
Many gifted individuals, kin to your clan, touched lives and made our world RICHER…
Should have pursued my quest and made you my kids’ MOTHER!
Ooops, you made it hard for me to compose and write this BLOG;
You’ve even refused to give your birth date just to fill my LOG;
So, such scarcity of data has indeed worried ME…
Writing this FUN RHYME BLOG, though has made me to scrawl with GLEE!
But you’re a proud and passionate NEW YORKER NOW…
For that I’ll utter a BOOMING and LUSTY WOW!
Loving indeed the vibrant NEW YORK LIFE…
Your hubby BRUCE, am sure is doting too, to his lovely and dainty WIFE!
You’ve worked your way in NEW YORK’s STYLE…
At MCDERMOTT LAW Firm with much fervor and SMILE;
During our UP Law days, you always wear that twinkled BEAM,
It was indeed the allurement that brought me INSPIRATION and VIM!
First, I’d like to THANK YOU for bonding with my KIDS…
That was years ago, when they met you then at NYC PATRICK’s;
You were admired by my KIDS as so truly GRACIOUS,
My son TON even exclaimed that you’re SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS!
Thank you too for your recent DONATION…
To my THREE (3) dancing dames, it brought much JOY and INSPIRATION;
And to their team members too, you’ve instilled unto them much PIZZAZ,
And to their winning the GOLD, let’s not just say “QUIZAS”!
Let’s PRAY and PRAY and PRAY, for that GOLD MEDAL and SASH!!!
