The Bea and Mitch wedding......
Those of you that weren't there missed quite a bash. I didn't realize that
you could fit that many people in a church. Nevertheless, Mitch and Bea were gracious
hosts. Bea was a gorgeous bride and Mitch looked pretty good for someone who just signed
away his life. Welcome to the club Mitch! Now we can sit in one corner during one of those
Lacson reunions and swap marriage stories and lick our wounds.
Back to the wedding, no less than the president was there. Boy, I
would have loved to do a couple of tequila shots with Erap and discuss his options
vis-a-vis the Chinese naval force in Palawan. Unfortunately, he didn't make it to the
The highlight of the evening, at least from our table's
perspective was when cousin Maricris tapped one of the sponsors on the shoulder as he was
walking by and said "Waiter...waiter.. where's my coke?"
We need pictures! I would like to post some old family photos here as I think it would
make the site a lot better. I've asked Titas Elena and Odette to help me round up
old photos of Abuelito and Abuelita - preferably a wedding picture. Also, if anyone has
any old/rare photographs that should be preserved, I recommend you have then scanned
before time takes its toll on them.
I'm glad this web page is helping to put us in touch with far-off relatives. Rica
recently posted a message on our message board.......so did Mark who now has a new family
in Los Angeles.......... I also received email from Vittorio Lacson from San Francisco. He
is married to Patricia Mulkins of Michigan. He also has two teenage boys Julian and Sean.
Vittorio is the half brother of Archie Lacson. His parents were Simeon Rene Lacson and
Casilda Gumban. It would be great to see what the Lacson family tree will look like when
and if it is ever completed. It was great hearing from you guys!
The Lacson Family Tree
Tita Elena has been working the Lacson family tree. If you haven't submitted
information, she needs your name, spouse name, and the name of your kids. Email the
information to Rely. Watch for it on this site
I don't know about you guys, but I always thought the Sunday lunch fare at
Urdaneta (now Greenhills) was pretty good. Remember Duray's lamb, lengua, prawns, steak,
and killer sans-rival? Not exactly health food, but it was great!
I still remember the smell of Duray's cooking wafting from
the kitchen as we entered the house for Christmas lunch. That, and the smell of Lifebuoy
soap in the bathroom beside the dining room that Abuelito made sure everyone washed their
hands in prior to sitting down.
Anyway, I was hoping someone would record these recipes down
for posterity. Maybe we can convince Duray to conduct a cooking class for our cooks or
whomever is interested to learn.
I believe Tita Menchu knew some, if not all of those
recipes; although I don't think she had them written down. Ahh, those meals in Canoga Park
bring back great memories too.
If anyone happens to have these recipes written down
somewhere please email them to this site.
The L Files
We are looking for family stories, anecdotes, etc. that may one day be part of
Lacson lore. I imagine the clan elders have troves of this stuff. Who can forget
Tito Manny's story about the family coat-of-arms that might "prove" we were of
Irish descent?!? Or the ancestor who sired 20+ kids (Trojans, anyone)? It would be
interesting, I think, to compile all these stories and share them with everyone.
