Feature: Not So Grand Lacson Reunion
Considering the social standing of the Lacson family name, I was quiet disappointed with the 2nd Lacson Reunion. It didn’t bear the “Grand” adjectiveit had for the 1st Lacson Grand Reunion. There was nothing to celebrate about…
ELG with the famous Rose Lacson
What should have been a clarion call to get together and tie the family bonds
led to disarray and disunity. Each branch tried to outdo the others, there was
no sense of grandeur that has made the Lacson name stand out from the rest—even
being called the Kennedys of the Philippines sounded terribly out of place. The
only thing that came to my mind was the bickering of petty complaints why this
branch was called royale and why that branch was designated as pure blood.
Hello! Must you take all that crap seriously?!!!
First of all, the venue was too small for 600 people. Secondly, the aircon
didn’t work because the huge audio system had to be placed outside so the
sliding glass doors could not close. Third, by the time the midday games and get
to know you portion came, everyone went home because they were dying of heat
stroke. Fourth, after the variety show which wasn’t that bad because of the
dance numbers, there was a time to socialize and get to know each other.
Unfortunately, that’s when the band started at mega decibels. Lastly and most
importantly for any true blooded Lacson, the paella was on one side and the
inasal was on the other side and nothing was marked, so when you were halfway
thru your inasal, you realize that you could have had paella!
Yusay-Lacson Clan, most number of attendees
For one to hiss and spit venom because they were not called royale only
proves that some branches must have some heavy chips on their shoulders. Either
that or they are not really worthy to bear the dignity that the Lacson name has
for many generations. Some should even revel in the notoriety of the Lacson
name. After all, if not for the many indiscretions of some patriarchs, the
glamour of the Lacson name would not be what it is today.
Instead, it was KKB (kanya kanyang bayad) all the way. From the pay as you
enter to eat and drink, to the long hours of waiting and not getting to know
each other till dinner time to the lame variety show, it was a flop! Next time,
don’t even bother to let me listen to some lame duck politician who won’t even
get the Lacson votes because the Lacsons are voting somewhere else—so, no need
to make pogi points here, buddy. Spare me the intrigues because they’ll get you
nowhere… and just let me know I have gorgeous in laws to look at, instead of the
pedigreed mutants it has managed to produce through all these past generations!
And I will not be party to some Lacson wannabe being chairman to any next Lacson
Reunion. Better yet, let’s not have any more Lacson Reunions.
