It's grand

The 2008 Ateneo de Manila University Grand Alumni Homecoming last night, before the program started. From 1859 until the mid-1970s, the ADMU was an all-male school, hence the scarcity of women among the older classes in the foreground. The younger alumni were located at the farther end of the covered courts where the big, inflatable San Miguel Beer bottle is. Congratulations to the silver jubilee class of High School '83, the main host of this year's homecoming, and particularly to Dr. Sio Marquez, the head of the organizing committee. In the eight years I've worked during this grand reunion, last night was the first time I didn't go home starving and tired to the bone.

Hi Hilda, yes the Saint is me... it has been a great celebration 240 kids and 500 parents. Very fun to do.
I know a teacher of the University in Manilla, I forgot his name though but he liked his work a lot, he was a teacher on architecture...
