|I am sure you will enjoy the fun of singing old Tausug
songs, and of course the native food that we don't want to forget.
Thanks to the Vabuenas, Bong and Virginia to host this affair, they have
a beautiful house and the most well organize garden in their compound with
so many different kinds of fruits and flowers, and it is so spacious that
we can set up to 30 tents or more, for those who wanted to stay with us
overnight you may do so. Just to let you know, we have very
special guest coming from the Philippines like Governor Parouk Hussin,M.D.
, Reynaldo CHEE Chang, Nelson Chiong, and Ombre Hamsirani.
If you want to meet Tausug and enjoy native food, please come and you may
contact Bong or Virginia at (323) 660-4921.
Mga kababayan Tausug,
Anybody else who are planning to come,please contact us or you can
call Bong and Virgie at (323) 660-4921 so we will know what food you will
bring in,para naman duga-ing in dahun niyu
In addition, I have a special
guest too, and he is Dr. Tommy Garcia Jr. The Tausug are
proud to have some pure Tausug medical specialist working around our community.
Join us and we will have fun meeting old friends and getting to know new ones.
This very special occasion is for people from Jolo and Generally speaking "TAUSOG" from all over Sulu Island who speaks tausog language and badjao language.

Hi! This is to warmly greet you all and wish you a wonderful and heart warming get-together in LA. Old friends at Ateneo (where I still teach part-tine) "with a Jolo past" such as Willy Arce and Ricky Abad, along with Wahoo Taylor (whom I see quite often at the office of my wife) ask me to
send you their warmest wishes There are many of us who cannot make it (if not for my back I would have made it two years ago) but we'll be there in spirit.
There will be a lot of enjoyment like meeting old friends , reminscing about the Jolo and Sulu we cherish, sharing sad news, reawakening the palate with Tausug dishes (mananam!), bichara-bichara, etc., etc. But what will count most is the spirit.
You have kept that spirit in a marvelous and unselfish way throughout
the years. However, I cannot help but single out the great work of Madge
Kho and Vange Kennedy in getting books and scholarships respectively to
Jolo and NDJC, in particular, on its 50th anniversary (this coming September
Irene: a warm hello. I am so glad you can make it to the LA Tausug big
