Professionally, nothing significant happened to me last year. However, in terms of personal affairs, I say that 2016 was rewarding because I am still connected and reconnected not only with my friends, barkadas, gang, and bff but also with my relatives. Here are some photos that highlight what a great year 2016 for me was:
There were many great pictures during the Bula Clan Family Reunion of 2016 but this is the one where I was most passionate about. These three guys were my nephews and are studying to follow the footsteps of my father.
These coffee mugs represents how large my gladness was in 2016 especially in my family and clan. We were able to hold our annual reunion for two decades now and it gets better and better each year.
These friends of mine have been there; when I was up they were there and they did not leave me when I was down. Thank you very much.
While only few made it to our annual December reunion, still I am glad that I was able to stay connected with my elementary classmates. I am hopeful that all the pictures posted in our Facebook group will motivate other classmates and batchmates to attend 2017 reunion.
I say that to be able to celebrate Christmas day together is no mean feat especially if you no longer have your parents. I believed that other orphaned friends share the same sentiments.
2016 will go down as one of the most significant years in my life as finally I was able to complete a 9 day Simbang Gabi.
After 8 years, I attended a grand alumni homecoming of Davao City National High School. I would like to thank my cousins Eleonor Bula Cameron and Ana Luth Tancio Bula for sponsoring my ticket and T-shirt respectively. I had a great time meeting old friends again.
I believed that this picture says it all with regard to my achievements with my physical fitness activities.
This picture says why 2016 is one of the best years of my life. A reunion with my high school buddies. This is the Part 11 of the planned reunion in 2016.
The shirt I wore in this photo is a testament that you have to ask in order to have it.
These two kids made me realized what I was missing in my life; well one of those hahahahaha.
Filipinos are known as KBL’s; they only gather during kasal (wedidng), binyag (baptism), and lubong (funeral). It was unfortunate that Ate Nelly and I met at a funeral but of course we were both happy as the last time that we last saw each other was in 1991.
This picture showed that I do have ways with kids. Suplado daw kasi ang batang ito but he saw me as ka-aya ayang lolo. Yes, lolo ang tawag niya sa akin.
My heart was indeed filled with gladness having breakfast with these people; They were my colleagues in Zamboanga City which I spent one of the most fruitful years professionally and personally.
This is Part 1 of my 2016 high school reunion.I bet many of you are jealous of the scene in the picture. Hahahahahaha. !!!!
I found it difficult to swallow. Who wouldn’t when boys and chocolates are molded together, hahahahahaha!!!.
One of the highlights in 2016 is when this lady (Susan Logatoc Tomimbang) went back to Davao and included me in one of her sojourns. I felt the privileged of being a friend to her.
Three of the best buddies, in my Bula family.
You knew that you are part of their friendship when NO is not a word they will accept from you.
Meeting two great cousins is indeed fun. Here, I am with Rod Bula and Dennis Bula Domingo.
You know that you have indeed moved on when you can pose in a group picutre along with some people who hurt you. Hurt daw!!!!.
2016 is indeed a great year for me and this picture is one of those reasons why last year was very awesome for me.
A wedding is one great way for Pinoys to meet friends; old friends specially. Hello Paul and Joy. Louie , hello din hehehehe.
You know that you are indeed deeply rooted in their lives when a homecoming is not complete without you. Hope to see you again Lorna Virrey.
It is 17 years since we became friends. It is not easy I tell you when you want to become friends with this formidable person.
It’s our first summer outing of Davao City National High School Batch 83. One good reason why 2016, ranks up there as one of the best years of my life.
A friend of a friend who happen to be friends with this friend is not an excuse why your friendship will not last long. I say I was glad that I made friends with them.
The first debut party of my godchild ever. Thank you Dana for making me a a part of your memorable moment in your life.
Meeting some of my drinking buddies during the nineties. It was an awesome night although, three of them no longer drink but only smoke. Hahahahah
