Remedios Pusag (David) (1961)

 Special prayers were said for the speedy recovery of Mellie's mom.

Yes, I intend to be a part of the 2012 RIAA-Canlubang Grand Reunion. I really hope I can do something to help the Organizing Committee make the said affair one of its kind - worthwhile, memorable, an event that will be remembered by all, an outreach program. . .  Still, taga-Canlubang pa ako (and proud to be) because I have all my siblings there, except Kuya Dayo (now based in Ventura CA)

I was shocked when I see the post of Mellie Faunlagui that my former board mate at Misericordia St.,Santa Cruz, Manila pass away. Donnie, thanks for letting us know about your brother Jesus Tapay pass away.May his soul rest in peace. Our deepest condolence Donnie to his family left behind and we wish have wings like an angels to see him on his last journey to our temporary place in this agonizing world as what St. Paul in his letter to the Romans 8:18-25...Destiny of Glory.I consider the sufferings of the present to be as nothing compared with the glory to be revealed in us.Yes, we know that all creation groans and is in agony even until now. Not only that, but we ourselves, although we have the Spirit as first fruits, groan inwardly while we await the redemption of our bodies. In hope  we were saved. But hope if its object is seen; how is it possible for one to hope for what he sees? And hoping for what we cannot see means awaiting it with patient endurance.

Once again our condolence to your loss Donnie and to his family.

Raolito & Estela Beltran

Mellie Contreras (Faunlagui) (1962)

Mr. Manolito Reyes,

There is no reason for correcting him. He knows Donnie who passed away and he knows he was his boardmate in Misericordia. He had the names twisted and so let it be.

I was so nice you are all still in contact with one another. Those who were not able to attend, I guess the best thing is to pray for them as they pray for all of you too where ever they are? We all believe in the power of prayer...The triumphant, Militant and the Suffering. Stay intact as a big family...Raolito Beltran

It was good that Manolito Reyes post our teacher who help us so much in our Agriculture, gardening, planting vegetables. I did know that she passed away, she was our neighbor at LEDC but did not have contact since we sell our house because of looking for a greener pastures to get out of our beloved Philippines. I ended working as Piping Engineer in Theran, Iran while my wife Estela working  as Nurse very far from my place where I live. It took 10 hours in the bus to see her during weekend in Burogen near Isfahan, Iran. During the political turmoil in Iran during the reign of Shah, I told my wife to go back home at LEDC, Canlubang, Laguna and my teacher Ms. De Leon is asking about me as my wife sending me letters. I did not go back home cause I owe much money for my airplane ticket to my mother in law to pay her back. Found a job in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia as Outside Plant Engineer and resign after a year cause the company promise to bring my family. Miracle happen asking prayer to The Carmelite nuns in Quezon City that I could go back to Saudi Arabia, while looking for a job in Ermita I met an employer and lend her money for the taxi cause he has no Philippine pesos. Told me to come back the office in Ermita where they are interviewing and hiring engineers and told me he will pay me back. The guard would not let me in but he saw me at the door and let me in. He hired me cause he has the list of people of my former Canadian boss and inform me that I am on the list. When back to Dammam, Saudi Arabia with my family, where my former boss was re-assign. Miracle really happens if you just believe in your heart. That was year 1979 when I say goodbye to our beloved teacher Ms. Fabiana De Leon...May she rest in peace accompany with angels in heaven.

After 11 years of stay in Damman, our bio data to USA arrived and ended up to be here in the land of milk and honey but when I arrived here cannot find a job for 7 months, dissappointed to be here in USA. I want to go back home in the Philippines. miracle happen again while praying and met a Filipino in the mall and was hired as Mechanical Draftsman was laid after a year. Study at night at ROP, Cerritos College and CalState University of Fullerton to learn computer, AutoCad, etc. We all arrived here in USA July 20, 1989. After a year in staying here my mom died and met the engineering boss at Mitsubishi Escalator and Elevator and gave my resume to him. Miracle happened again that while looking for a job in six month, the Filipino enginering boss called me to apply as Mechanical Elevator drafstman. My boss was laid-off after 5 years of my stay at Mitsubishi and was laid-off after a month too. While looking for a job again for 3 months of searching, my boss was hired in the State of California, DIR/DOSH as Elevator inspector. He ask me to apply and was hired to be an Elevator inspector. Miracle always happen when you ASK, SEEK, & KNOCK at the door of our Lord Jesus Christ as He promise us that He will never leave us nor abandon us. God bless you all my Rizal Institute graduates. Now I am retired enjoying the blessings of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

Yours in Christ Jesus,

Raolito R. Beltran & Family

Mellie Contreras (Faunlagui) (1962)

Mr. Reyes, as I have observed, you have too much negative criticisms on the site. I do not have the time to update the RI website on a regular basis. And for whatever reason I have, it is none of your business. I am not just sitting around and work on the site. I requested you to be an assistant administrator, you did it for few months. I do not solicit any money to fund the site, so please be patient. Thank you. 

PS. There are thousands of members and it is only you and you alone who posts nasty comments.

Edgardo Tortuga (1969)

It looks like Reyes has a lot of free time. So instead of criticzing he should offer/volunteer to help out and do the things that needs to be done on the website and stop complaining. Or he can stop logging in if he doesn't like what he sees!


11/17/16 05:10 PM #44    


Edgardo Tortuga (1969)

Reyes, you're so full of bull, hot air and saliva ware! And you know that!

I don't believe anything you said. if you don't like what you see and you can't help out then don't visit this site! It's that plain and simple!

Mellie Contreras (Faunlagui) (1962)

This is not the purpose of this website, I created this site at my expense so you will remember who your classmates are, get in touch with them. I took the time to procure records of all batches from the RI registry so you will be at least informed. As time goes by, you forget your batchmates, at least when you see their names, you are being reminded of who she/he is. This was not created to attack or voice out your negativism. Let us stop this barradge of harsh words.  I try to get you updates of people who passed away I AM not in any way connected to any funeral parlor to give you updates of who left us, I receive emails. If you are not happy, you get frustrated just let me know, one click and you are OUT.
