From the EDI­TOR

YES! (Philippines) - - From The Editor -

Fam­ily is again where we’re at in De­cem­ber, quite ex­pect­edly. This is the ul­ti­mate month, af­ter all, for huge gath­er­ings for sep­a­rated sib­lings, ar­riv­ing Ti­tas and Ti­tos, friends who’ve be­come fam­ily, and the best of the lot: the apos! It is fit­ting, there­fore, that in this is­sue we re­unite with the very tal­ented Ju­lia Clarete, who shared with us pic­tures of her wed­ding to

Gareth McGe­own, in what was a big but laid­back fam­ily af­fair in Gal­way, Ire­land. Back here, Pat Dy sent us photos of Iza Calzado, sur­rounded by her tight show­biz fam­ily, say­ing “yes” to Ben Win­tle, in Ta­gay­tay, in a gar­den which holds the last best mem­o­ries of Iza’s fa­ther, chore­og­ra­pher and di­rec­tor Lito. Over in Cebu, Kaye Abad and PJ

Castillo held a baby shower for their wouldbe first­born, in the first steps to build­ing their young fam­ily. So very much like Ding­dong Dantes and Marian Rivera, who now have Baby Zia and look for­ward to adding four more—yes, only-child Marian wants five in all—to their brood. This hol­i­day sea­son, we ex­pect all these fam­i­lies to find the time to hug and kiss and, with gen­uine af­fec­tion, say the nicest things to each other. Happy hol­i­days and good cheer, ev­ery­one!

YES! EDI­TOR IN CHIEF JO-ANN MAGLIPON (IN BLUE) WITH THE GIRLS IN HER LIFE: DAUGH­TER PA­TRI­CIA ANA, FIRST APO LU­CIA LIANNE, AND SEC­OND APO ISABELLA JOSEFA.
