Romy Macapagal is also one of the early students of GM Tatang Ilustrisiomo.  Since Guro Macapagal is an educated man,  Tatang would sometimes defer to Guro Macapagal stories and adventures about his life,  and also explanations of the blade.  Guro Macapagal is regarded by many within the Kalis Ilustrisimo circle as their 'scribe and historian'.  Guro Macapagal is particularly fond of explaining Kalis Ilustrisimo methodolgy purely from a blade angle.
