PAL Pal’s Reunion Part 2
By Anton “Onyot” de Leon
February 19, 2008

This is one of the outbreaks of the “infectious strain” of reunions by the New Jersey Ex-PALers, featured earlier at  And obviously is a much bigger crowd considering the CA population of Pinoys and the attendance of out-of-state Bebe Secusana from AZ, Belinda Lim-Yngente, Jun and Elaine Fajardo - all-the-way from Cebu, Philippines. This organization is pioneered by FQ Forting Quintana with the cooperation of Jack & Tessy Ferrer, Yoyong Serrano (host) & all of the Ex-PALers in the East Coast area. Then, with Jun, Boy Manapat (host), Eva & Loven Fernandez, & the rest of the California Ex-PALers - is the West Coast area's creation. This group is now extending to Canada and of course, back home to Cebu - where it recognizes its roots since most of them have served PAL in Cebu, Mactan, and all other stations.
