For Ilonggo speaking people, they can understand Social Whirl headline. It means so much fun with ZICANAG. And it happened last Sunday, July 20, at the  Zamboanga Golf and Beach when the officers and members of Circulo ZICANAG (Zamboanga Ilonggo Circle from Iloilo, Capiz, Aklan, Negros Occidental, Antique, and Guimaras) had their general membership and fellowship.  It was held in the nice and spacious beach cottage owned by a Korean. If you have beach parties or events, you might consider this place.

Circulo ZICANAG is a local association of Ilonggos who have resided, married, studied, made business, worked, have families, and children who made Zamboanga City as their second home. It aims to unite all Ilonggos into one group to help each other, maintain their cultural identity, and develop camaraderie with everybody.

Special guest was Zamboanga City newly installed Archbishop Romulo de la Cruz who is by birth an Ilonggo. He was born in Balasan, Iloilo, near the hometown of my Ilonggo husband which is Estancia. The good natured and fun loving Archbishop stayed the whole day with us. His made us proud and secured especially with his godly presence.

It was a blissful and blessful day as God answered our prayers for an enjoyable day. Earlier, there was a strong rain that made us fear that it might be cancelled or only few will come. But the sun came out before lunch that made our activity complete and happy. For fun, we had bingo games with prizes to boot.

Lunch by Cecile’s Catering was sumptuous. It served delicious and yummy food more than enough for everybody. No wonder this catering business is doing good in this industry, they know how to please their clients. It was also the birthday of Cecile Usman.  This Ilongga businesswoman is really blessed. Her good business acumen is making her Cecile’s catering and pension house grow by leap and bound as years passes by. She is a fulfilled and beautiful woman. Belated happy birthday, Cecile!

Congrats to ZICANAG president Dr. Nida Tan and her officers for the success of Sunday’s beach event! If you’re an Ilonggo and wants to join ZICANAG, contact Antonio Tan at 991-4492 or 0906-6342231 or Lowell Tantoco at 0917-7111610.
