I attended Inquirer’s tribute to Sir Y last night. It was so beautiful. Food, friends, and laughter – definitely his scene.
Sorry for the crappy phone photos. I have crappy phone photos, so I’m uploading Kate’s photos instead.
Please see: Kate’s blog post.
That’s Inquirer President, Sandy Prieto, giving a tearful speech. We were in the satellite room. We were able to push ourselves into the jampacked main room only near the end of the tribute.
Amando Doronila, raging against “Twitters” and Facebook hahaha.
The program ended with a message from Inquirer’s Editor in Chief, Letty Jimenez-Magsanoc. I teared up a little when she said, “When [Gani] was told in 1994 that he was going to be appointed Inquirer’s Publisher, he wept.”
It has to be told that when we went to a Starbucks after the program, Kate and Julie heard the cashier talking to the man in line in front of them. The cashier said:
“Thank you for coming, Sir Gani.”
What are the odds. :)
