Despedida for Sally



A group from the Negros Occidental High School Class ‘62 recently gave a despedida party for their balikbayan classmate Sally Tan of Chicago, Illinois, who stayed for two months in the City of Smiles. She will be away for six months and then plans to come back to retire in the dream house that she had built.

The group decided to go to Green Lagoon in Sicaba, Cadiz City, Negros Occidental, owned by Minda de los Santos. We travelled by car for almost two hours, to the serene place blanketed in shades of green as far as the eyes could see.

Blooming flowers fenced the lovely rest-house set in the middle of the property and surrounded by a fishpond.

We proceeded to a hanging rest-house at the shore and had an enjoyable time exploring the place. For lunch time, each of us had brought something to share and for all to enjoy.

Reminiscence of our high school days followed, and before we knew it, it was time to go home.

Today, Sally Tan will honor us with lunch at Mely’s Garden.

To Sally, good luck and God bless.*

Remember: When we draw near to God, our minds are refreshed and our strength is renewed. The best reason for hope is God’s faithfulness.*
