Conversations about: Damian Domingo

They were arrayed in individual frames on one wall of the dining room colored “bleu royale”…

“How cccuuuttteee!!!”  I squealed ala Three Little Pigs.

“You wouldn’t find them cute if you know how much they cost.”  a good friend censured.

“I know perfectly well how much they cost, thank you.”  I froze, assuming the comic Baroness von Liedenbaum persona in the film “Anastasia” starring Ingrid Bergman.

“How cute!!!”  I squealed again.

    Mia O. Herbosa is also a Rizal. Her great great grandmother Lucia Rizal-Herbosa was the sister of National Hero Jose P. Rizal.

    Had no idea of Mia’s Manila market-status on the ground. Glad to hear she is a success.

    Yes, small world re our various degrees of separation. I always wondered what happened to Manny and his other brother. See, that Francisco Herbosa branch lived in Greenhills; so DLS-Greenhills was the obvious choice. Their dad was our family dentist. The Mariano (Poch’s father) branch, on the other hand, lived with my Garcia grandparents in Ermita. I believe Poch finished high school in Ateneo (I think when they still had a high school at Padre Faura).

    BTW, I didn’t hear good things about Poch’s health recently. (Have not been in direct contact with them for many years now.)

    Let me know when you get the book in your hands and actually take a gander at it. I’m very curious as to your reactions to it. And re the Malabon item, I just got lazy to go back to June (was it)?

    Mia Herbosa is no longer an up-and-coming artist at all. She is TOTALLY MADE as social Manila’s queue for her works only get longer by the day.

    What a small world: Pocholo Herbosa was a classmate of Manoling Dizon, married to my first cousin Regina “Ina” Palanca Gonzalez. Meanwhile, my Gonzalez second cousin, Rosemarie “Bambina” Gonzalez de Leon, is married to Manny Herbosa.

    Here’s something about that up-and-coming, NYC-Manila-based artist Mia Herbosa who is a great (3x)-granddaughter of Damian Domingo and Don Alfonso Ongpin; granddaughter of above-mentioned Lourdes Velayo Ongpin (see Enrique’s post #1). Mia’s father (Pocholo Herbosa) is a first cousin. (Then of course, she and socialite Nina Herrera-Huang are first cousins.)

    Hey Mia, I’m actually boosting your stock here… 😉

    The some of the few paintings of Damian Domingo belongs to his descendants La Sagrada Familia owned by Lourdes Velayo Ongpin, Nuestra Senora Del Rosario and Catedra de San Pedro en Roma both owned by the late Finance Secretary Jaime Velayo Ongpin
