It was one merry and jolly Christmas event last December 6 at the Crystal Ballroom of Grand Astoria Hotel. The officers and members of the Circulo ZICANAG (Zamboanga Ilonggo Circle from Iloilo, Capiz, Aklan, Negros Occidental, Antique, and Guimaras) had their 2014 Christmas Party and Fellowship.

The night was filled of Te, Abaw, Sadya Gid, Hidlaw kita, and other Ilonggo words of endearments. Who wouldn’t? This is the only and the longest running Ilonggo association in our city and when the Ilonggos meet – expect an explosion of laughter, dancing, singing, and merry making.

Special guest speaker was Department of Tourism-9 Regional Director Mary June Bugante. She has an Ilongga blood. Like other successful Ilonggos, who made Zamboanga City as their home, ZICANAG is proud of her achievements in her present government position.

Congratulations to ZICANAG president Dr. Nida Tan for another wonderful feat before the year ended for the Ilonggos-Zamboangueños!
