Pabariyo Ari Malpal

John Goss, a.k.a. John Pitt, has already sent me some of the photos he took while on vacation in Capul (I still expect more, John, he he).
I will start with the souvenir shots during their post-fiesta palayahay in my “kurubong” in Malpal. I am not sure if I know all the guests there, but of course, there’s Mr. & Mrs. Bernard & Mila Ortego, Mana Dolor Bascon, Mana Nory Alfaro and husband Dante and Toto Cabacang.

It rained the night of the town fiesta (vespera), but as full-blooded Abaknons, we never allow anything to spoil our fun. So despite the heavy downpour, the dancing continued – onstage!Here are some shots of the happenings that night. Thanks to Michelle Hilario-Jao.

Aldous' Birthday Bash

It seems that many Abaknons celebrated their natal days recently. Let me add to the roster that of Aldous Canapi -the pictures therein are posted below.

For the others, please don’t hesitate to send them to the administrator. Just seeing you all having fun is enough for many fellow Capulenos to feel just as happy.

New Look!

Thank you Jed for the beautiful header.

A Truly Lucky Birthday

Imagine celebrating your 8th birthday on the 8th day of the 8th month of 2008. That makes four 8s! What could be luckier than that?

That birthday celebrator is the daughter of Ace (Achong) Bandal. Her name is Crystel Anne Lovea Bandal. They're now based in Melbourne, Australia.

Belated Happy Birthday Crystel!

Happy Birthday, Aljun!

Aljun just turned 22 last Saturday (he he. Please see the cake for the real age).

As usual, many of us were not invited. :-) But just the same, we wish him the best.
(Thanks Mylen for the pics. You are now Bandilyo's official paparazzi!)
