This is a tribute site to our teacher and friend, Bob Silver C. Tabimina.

Bobby teaches from Mondays thru Fridays, 6pm to 7+pm, and Saturdays, 9am to 12am, at the Gold Loop Towers (condominium) at Gold Loop (street) in Pasig near Pearl Drive (near CRC college). If you were in Shaw Blvd, coming from the Rotonda beside Capitolio Village and City Hall going towards EDSA, turn right at Red Ribbon Bakeshop, and you'll be in Gold Loop (street). Gold Loop Towers is just a few buildings to your left.

Visitors are welcome to watch; just mention your name and your intent to the condominium guard. Class rates and private rates can be discussed with Bobby.
