Councilor Mark John Vargas of Ilog town in Negros Occidental hosted a Hawaiian-themed party to welcome his sister, Nenette and her husband, Noris Mateum, to visit their beloved mom, Remedios Vargas, for their vacation in the Philippines.

After retiring from work as accountants in Houston, Texas, in the USA, the couple migrated to Portugal to spend the rest of their lives, while touring European countries.

On December 10, Nenette’s friends and classmates from La Consolacion College and La Salle College, together with their relatives, gathered at the former Congressman Raymundo Vargas ancestral home in Bacolod City.

It was also the day to remember the 12th death anniversary of their dad, former Ilog Mayor Romeo Vargas, along with the birthday celebration of Quint, the grandson of Nenette and Noris.

Quint is the son of the couple’s daughter, Stephanie, with husband William Foster.

The gathering was capped with the performances of the gay divas of Bacolod and the city’s pride, sensational singer Carl Malone Montecido.*
