Donations of school buildings

In line with the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chamber of Commerce school building projects; last week my husband Lucas together with his brother Lucio, two Manila federation's representatives, local board members James Yap, Johnson Go, Bernardino Cue and others went to the interiors of Cotabato, Maguindanao to donate 19 units of two-classroom school buildings. They went to Buaya Buaya, Tamontaka, Kakar, Dalikan, Upi and other barriors to officially turn over the school buildings.


LCT hardware, our family own business donated one unit, other local business establishments followed suit with Mr. Enrique Cheng (base in Manila) donating 9 units.


Lucas was happy to be involved with the civic events. He enjoyed the trip to the hinterlands: the bumpy roads, the scenic views, the fellowships and others. I shall soon post some of the pictures taken.

Christmas is fast approaching and I am getting busy with practicing the kids for their school Christmas Program. Practice started last week. The children are oh so enthusiastic but how am I going to teach them......to listen to rhythm, to move with coordination, to remember their formation.....etcetera...etcetra......They are but only 4 to 6 years old. Hahaha!

November 10, 2006

This morning I went to school as usual and conducted my lessons as planned. At 9:30 AM recess time, I treated the pupils, faculty and staff to snacks of spaghetti, fried chicken and coca cola. I brought home the same packed value meals to the househelps, driver and security guard.


This evening, I celebrated my birthday simply and quietly at home with Lucas. We ate pancit canton brought from Mardoney's. My sister Jeannette, her son Anthony and grandson Abraham came to greet me. We had dinner together. I am glad to be celebrating my birthday simply without fanfare. During the dinner, my next door nephew Dominic, his wife Carol and their child Chelsea came over to greet me too.


Earlier my children, two best friends and siblings texted me greetings of happy birthday.Honestly I am happy they all remember. 


As I write this blog tonight, I thank God for this circle of people. They are God's gifts to me.

Fifty five

Today I turn 55 years old. I am glad to have reached this age. I thank God for the gift of life and the many blessings He has bestowed upon me. Earlier this year, I was foolishly afraid of not being able to reach this natal day because of some physical and emotional health concerns. My mother died at the age of 52 and I prayed to live longer. I am happy to be 55. To be physically present for my family: my husband, my children and grandson. Even if I can not be of great help, yet I can always pray fervently for my loves ones. God listens to me and I trust in His great mercy and compassion.Thank You Lord

Eve of Christening

I was out most of the nights here in Manila. There was the birthday of Helen on October 31, a visit to Baclaran Church on Wednesday night, a movie "The Guardian" on November 2 with my sibs, and another movie " The Banquet" with Ollie, Emil, Martha and Marion last night. But today after a whole day shopping, I stay put while the kids play board game at home. They are really noisy and I can't write well with all the distractiions. Tomorrow is the baptismal of Dylan. We'll have a small party at night. This is so far a very busy and active week in Manila.
