One, Two, Three ... Smile!

These kids from Bungto and San Luis are surely not camera shy.

Undas 2009 Pics

Many Abaknons, for pressing reasons, fail to go home and observe All Saints and All Souls Day in Capul. And while away, it is undeniable that their hearts and minds are on their beloved departed who are resting in the camposanto which cradles them.

To satiate our thirst for glimpses of home, here are pictures taken during the commemoration of our dead. These were sent to Bandilyo by Peter Magdaraog.

Jose Felmar Cabacang In Japan

Jose Felmar "Intoy" Cabacang of CAIS Batch '86 is currently in Japan for extensive training at the Isuzu Headquarters in Kawasaki.

This is part of the skills upgrade and immersion being given to them as trainors/instructors for the Isuzu-TESDA program in Tacloban.

Game Na!


Savannah Resort Hotel

If by any chance you need a place to rest while checking out the former Clark Airbase, or when you just need to have some time for respite from Manila's hustle and bustle, try visiting the Savannah Resort in Angeles City. The place not only boasts of comfortable and affordable accommodations, but also of great food.

The place is owned and managed by the family of Mr. & Mrs. Benedict Leong (Josephine Magdaraog). It is located at Don Juico Avenue, Clark View, Angeles City, Pampanga.

Marikina Fun

For Abaknons, there is no other place to go if we want some good old fashioned Abaknon fun but in Marikina. When you go there, you get a slice of Capul even if you're miles away from it.

These pics were taken some months back and there's no denying the fact that these guys rock when they entertain visitors. Hopefully, they'll get their groove back.
