welcome back and bon voyage, fr. roy eco!

fr. roy eco, now based in florida USA, recently came home for a vacation and met with his favorite former students, batch 87 siempre! :) after spending two weeks in sorsogon and before flying back to the US, he took time to meet and have dinner with manila-based batchmates -- in this case, gibbs, erwin, linuz, totep, jong and tato. we met at starbucks gateway, then proceeded to italianni's for a super-yummy dinner. tapos konting beer and lots of laughs sa klownz! all in all, a wonderful evening with a former mentor who, perhaps more than any other, was closest to us -- because siya lang nagtiyaga sa aton, haha, teaching us Pilipino and directing us in 'ang paglilitis ni mang serapio,' our greatest bonding experience. diri amo, mga bro? :) to fr. roy, maraming salamat and we'll always be here!
