After the shows, they snacked at the food court and then went to classmate  Gloria’s Flamingo Hotel hospitality suite where they had drinks and  discussed Bundok matters.

On Tuesday, October 21, the classmates met for lunch at Las Vegas’  Chinatown.

The classmates spent the rest of the night saying their goodbyes and preparing for the trip back home the following day.

Except for host Gloria Pabalan, attendees came to Las Vegas from Chicago,  Seattle, and various parts of California. They were Celia Tomlinson and  husband Bruce Harder, Lourdes Sison and husband Don Wong, Waldo Bao and  wife Mila, Jaime San Mateo and wife Aida, Esmyrna Agustin and husband  Art Jorge, Antonio Sundiang, Salvador Mallorca, Rodolfo Fabregas, Lucy  Aprecio, Andrea Cabiles, Norma Vecta, and Norma Q.
