Photo above: June 1988, my mom with my 'big sister-cousin' Ate Edith. This photo was taken in Manila about the time we were residing in Makati while I was going to university.

These are just a few of my most cherished photos of my mom. There are times I miss her a lot. Every Mother's Day, I think about the sacrifices she has done for me. She was all I had then, and I was her only child. I am thankful for her love and guidance especially during my formative years...

Presenting "A Day In Life" my series of texts from my journals that I kept between the ages of 14 and 17. I'll be adding new entries every now and then to share all my thoughts, ideas,events, experiences, memories, ideas I had during the eighties. It is for my continued amusement that I read and reread my old journals, even when there isn't much content, I still gain occasional insight how I'm still in the process of changing to maturity. Most of the names have been changed to protect the people I recently found on Facebook. A few are just partial entries, my bleeping and blinding exclamations have been removed and some entries have been modified to give way to my now correct spelling and grammar. Yet the mix of excitement, melodrama and pleasant memories from the eighties are still much felt :)I hope, as you read my old journal with me, you enjoy the same sentiments.
