Ang GRAND REUNION ng AlliedBankers ay PUMATOK…
It will surely be for some time the town-TALK;
Sabi nga ni Ginoong Mario KATIGBAK,
“Matuloy lang, successful na at syempre SWAK na SWAK”!
Syempre naging elegante ang naging UMPISA…
May national anthem na tunay na KAKAIBA;
Sabi nga ni BENG SOLIS na “non-political” ang video na kanyang KINUHA,
“STATESIDE” ang brand nung BAYANG MAGILIW video, nyang TALAGA!
Nang matapos naman ang anthem ay may prayer-INVOCATION…
Aba may kasama itong dance INTERPRETATION;
Sa saliw ng THE PRAYER ni DIONE at ni BOCELLI,
Nag-ballet ang cute at magaling kong anak na si ALEE!
Syempre ako ang pumapel na ala-BOCELLI…
At ang singing partner ko na si IRENE HALCON;
Siya naman ang nag ala-CELINE DIONE,
At nag-dancing nga nang so graceful itong, si ALEE!
Sentimental naman ang sumunod na YUGTO…
Silent prayer para sa mga yumao na nagdulot ng BUGSO;
May naluha at naalala ang mga departed COLLEAGUES;
Syempre napatungga ako ng konting inumin from one of the KEGS!
Umulit kami ng awit nitong anak kong LALAKI…
At ang singer model ko muli ay si BOCELLI;
ED SHEERAN naman ang syang sambit ni ANTHONY,
At aming kinanta na nga ang PERFECT SYMPHONY!
At umawit din ang grupo ng ANGELOS…
Dinala sila ni CHARO YU, at para bagang may BONUS;
Tuloy-tuloy na umawit ng mga SONGS,
And they really amazed the GUESTS who came to the affair in THRONGS!
And the reunion party was truly well-ATTENDED…
Si MTG, si FGV at friend kong si ED;
Mga past Prexies na magigiting ay nandun DIN,
Si Prexy REY MACLANG at si former Prexy DING!
Si LEONSO PE ay nandun din, at kasama ang gracious nyang MISIS…
Nabanggit ang RESTO ng anak nya, na kung saan daw ay masarap ang TINUMIS;
Hinanap nya sa akin ang mga contemporary lawyers-FRIENDS NYA,
Ng Legal and Collection Department of ALLIED BANK THENCE!
Napabilib akong totoo kay JACKIE LIM…
Last posting nya was Manager of ABC’s branch in CEBU, MAMBALING;
Magaling na sa singing, magaling pa din sa DANCING…
A real trouper indeed who upped the aura of ENTERTAINING!
The GRAND REUNION truly gave us all the best OPTION…
To meet up all again after our respective work-TERMINATION;
Some I heard, did their last meeting-SEEING…
After almost 20 years when they ceased from their ABC’s WORKING!
It’s good too to meet and see others who just did a RESIGNATION…
For all those ALLIEDBANKERS’ may have attained some kind of successful FRUITION;
Most of them have gone though through an early DEMISSION,
Majority indeed have RETIRED as they indeed pined for “APOSTOLIC” FUNCTION!
Thanks indeed to all the ORGANIZERS…
For DANTE and BENG, as the event’s seeming KAISERS;
As they virtually headed and led the ASPIRATION,
For the holding and successful realization of the REUNION!
BENG SOLIS did a lot of WORK…
Though already SENIOR, he could still do the TWERK;
Those door prizes that were DISTRIBUTED,
Mainly came from him, and even EMBROCATED!
CHRIS DOBLES made us all PHOTOGENIC…
As he donated the PHOTO BOOTH, which was TERRIFIC;
Was the FIRST to be snapped by the booth’s PHOTOGRAPHER,
It really made all attendees unto the BOOTH so EAGER BEAVER!
PETER YAP gave us all the eager MOTIVE…
To really insure that the REUNION is held via a VOTIVE;
He started the ball rolling with the first DONATION,
That initial Php 10,000.00 pledge put us all in MOTION!
LEN RAMOS could even be hailed as a GREAT COLLECTOR…
She was the one who espied on every prospective DONOR;
She really worked with ARDOR and VIGOR,
And we reached our collection goal with her hubby’s SUCCOR!
CORA, ELLA and CHARO served as the CORE GROUP’s MUSES…
Continuously giving us inspiration, creative influence and much AFFLATUS;
CORA is EMCEE PAR EXCELLENCE,
With CHARO and ELLA, we could rely on help from PRINCESSES, PRINCES and FRIENDS!
ALMA gave it all and even did a FAST…
For in her assigned task last night, she forgot to have a REPAST;
She was so busy doing quick COORDINATION,
To insure the success of the GRAND REUNION!
ALBERT was a virtual jack-of-all-TRADES…
But he was so tactfully prudent and would not want to do ABRADES;
He was full of hints, suggestions and TIPS…
He made sure that we won’t do unfortunate lapses and SKIPS!
The skein of bonding, chatting, recounting, jesting, hollering and SOCIALIZING…
In last night’s GRAND EVENT, was capped with the REUNION SINGING;
To the tune of “KAHIT MAPUTI NA ANG BUHOK KO”,
To all of you, my dear ALLIEDBANKERS, MERCI BEAUCOUP!
