DPI Tabuan 3: The Gathering of Proud Panaynons

Last August 18, 2012, The Discover Panay Island Group by Hawili Hurom had a Tabuan Eyeball (Meet Up) at Concepcion Chalet, Jaro. This is already the third Tabuan Eyeball of the group. This is so far the biggest gathering with almost 80 members all over Panay participated in this event.

The group assembled at San Jose Church for candle lighting and offering of prayers. From San Jose the group proceed to Iloilo City Hall to view the Photo Exhibit of the Iloilo City Charter Celebration. From Iloilo City Hall the group had a photo walk in the downtown area going to Museo Iloilo where some of the members meet there (including me :-)). Others members covered the event at Iloilo River Esplanade.

From Museo Iloilo, we then proceed to Concepcion Chalet for our Lunch. We were welcomed by a beautiful place and mouth watering Ilonggo Dishes prepared by Chef Tibong Jardeleza. The Concepcion Chalet is located at Washington Street, Jaro, it is an American-influenced home built in 1924. Chef Tibong Jardeleza is our official caterer every time we had our Tabuan because of his Native Cuisine which also reflects the Ilonggo Culture.

Before the lunch we first have a short program and getting to know each other by introducing ourselves and get acquainted with the members of the group. Mr. Hawili Hurom also called up to relay his message to the group. Dr. Royce Reyes was tasked to give a message, and it was so inspiring, and he encourage the group to strengthen the unity and continue the quest for Discovering Panay Island.

After the short program and a prayer, we had our lunch, and of course, it will not be official without the “Tinanok nga Saging of the DPI”. It was a heart warming experience meeting humble Panaynons not to mention that these people are professionals and came from different walks of life, has higher position in their field, but still keeping their foot on the ground, sharing the same interest, Discovering and Promoting Panay Island. I got a chance also met Maam Maria Del Socorro Cansancio-Bender, who lives in Aschaffenburg, Germany, a very kind and humble person.

It was a lot of fun sharing tables, and winning a friend. I got a chance to meet other members and had a great time talking to them, and sharing experiences how we joined the DPI Group.

After the lunch, the group continue the photo walk at Casa Mariquit, and then headed to the Iloilo River Esplanade.

It was again another great experience joining the DPI Tabuan 3, and I know there are still a lot more to come, for the group never stops in Promoting and Discovering Panay Island. Thanks a lot Sir Hawili Hurom and all the Sponsors of this event. Til the next Tabuan Again!
