"Hello dear Brod Butch, thank you and All Betan Brods for your heartfelt support extended to me!

 GOD BLESS All Betans, Grant More Power to BETA SIGMA!" -- Tita Sol Arranz



This picture is from Dakoy Gorrez of Asia/RP.


Brods, thank you all for the well-wishes! It means a lot to me as it is from the arms of The Brotherhood that I draw the determination and tenacity to do what I do. Together with my sister Maya, Brod Dong Rasco’s daughter Riza, and a couple of good friends, I made the trek to Everest Base Camp in support of the LymeLight Foundation, a US NGO that addresses the treatment needs of qualified, Lyme-afflicted children. It was my intention to plant a UP Beta Sigma flag at Base Camp but delivery came late so the best I could do was a picture of me in a Malmon shirt. I will do better when I summit Everest in the 2020 or 2021 climbing season, if God and my beloved wife allow. I apologize for my late responses to BOD communications; internet on the trail has been spotty and it appears my votes may not have gone through. I will rectify this immediately as connectivity is good here in Lukla where we are recovering.

Met after 50 years

Greeting brods.
I enjoyed unbridled bonding joy that finally happened after 50 years between Charles M. and myself.
Charles and the lovely and gracious Linda, their precious and a bunch of most welcoming children and grandkids made me feel the essence of family and love.

Nestled amidst majestic pines and myriad of wild plants and flowers is their 3-story love nest where I slumbered like a baby thru the night.

Brods, the next time you visit the homeland and are in Baguio, stop by this little piece of heaven before we all ride into the sunset.

Manny Gatmaitan, Dan Galoso and Tony Martin


"After 49 years"


Last week, I learned that Manny Gatmaitan wanted to meet with me and Tony Martin. And after a few text messages here and there, we finally met at Jewel City Bowl in Glendale last night. And it was only last night that I found out they were very close to each other while still in the Philippines when they were still dating the girls who would become their spouses. Tony came to the US in 1970 and Manny in 1980. And so last night (6/22/18) -- 49 years later they meet again in person, older and wiser but still burning with the flames of brotherhood. Sabi nga ni Manny "Once a Betan, always a Betan".

It was a wonderful sight to witness. Even David Gatmaitan, Manny's son was filled with awe and admiration. David even remarked that he wishes he would still be with his friends 50 years later.

The night was filled with lots of questions interrupted only by sips of Heineken. There were lots of answers to fill in the void of 49 years. Can you really imagine that?

To cap off the night, we had dinner at a nearby Thai restaurant. It was fun, filling and fulfilling. Manny was insistent that he took care of food and drinks.

Oh by the way, Manny went for the GOLD. He handed me a check for a Gold Sponsorship. What a night !!! What a Brod !!!!

Eric and I are attending graduation ceremonies of Mel and Jennifer de Santos daughter Jessica at UPLB this a.m. Wld be nice to meet resident and graduating Brods. She took and finished VetMed.

Eric and I feel privileged to be invited by Jennifer to represent the brotherhood and be proxies for Mel D on their daughter's graduation. In the summer of 1973 Mel, Eric, Paeng and I went out of town with our respective partners to Baguio and the beaches of La Union. They became our wives. So today was a reunion of sorts.

Yesterday was special: I was able to visit Brod Jimmy Santos at his home in Marikina with Laila, my two sons, Karl and Jason, Saho [Karl’s wife] and granddaughter Misha.
Brod Jimmy has been bed-ridden since December as his prostrate cancer has spread. He cannot use his legs anymore.
We found my batch mate to be in great spirit.

Keep up you big battle against cancer, dear Brod.
