I was searching for the University of East where I studied back in the Philippines. Finally, they are now on line however the history is still yet to be updated. I have so much fond memories studying.
This University is really top-rated. No such thing as being humble based on its logo.
That is tall order and I cannot reach that for I am only five foot and two inches tall. As a freshman, I prefer to have good times and date the men in the Engineering Department. I was a flower amongst the thorns.
There is one person, though, who jumps so high that she became a topnotcher. She must be about four feet and eight inches tall. They say dynamite comes in small packages. And that she is. With that small head, she is all brains.
Was my Mother very proud of her dreams to educate her children?
She was more than shock to find out about this. Her perseverance and dedication to raise her children with good education no matter how poor we were was a great sacrifice for her. Mother, we are proud and love you for providing us the life you didn’t have. Thank you, Mother.
I know I will be in deep doo-doo for flaunting this. Here’s to hoping that she hasn’t been reading my blogs.
Thelma was the top-notch. We are siblings and she is the second Octoberian who celebrates her birthday.
Sleep, I need sleep. I crawled into bed after a long night of celebrating Sister #2’s birthday. It was December 14. Crawled into bed and knocked out cold and went into dream world. I could hear a phone ringing. Is … Continue reading →
How time flies! Jim and I have been married now for 32 years. We are blessed with six wonderful children.Looking back, it baffles me how we got together against all the odds. He’s Protestant. I’m Catholic. He’s quiet, reserved and shy, and I am loud, cheerful and always laughing. He came to Canada from New Zealand in 1970, and I arrived from the Philippines in 1976. In 1978, our paths crossed in a disco club. I was there with my friends and sister. Jim was “window shopping” with his friends.He tells people that he “picked” me, but I tell them that I was the one that seduced him with my dancing. I like teasing him and bossing him, and he doesn’t mind being told what to do. I suppose our differences are what attracted us to each other! We got married four years after meeting. His siblings came for the wedding and were surprised when they met me. I wasn’t the submissive “Oriental” girl they had in mind! I laughed so hard. And I’m still laughing. – Evelyn Logan

Evelyn is a year older than me. The fact of the matter I met Jim first at the disco place. There were four of us girls who just want to have fun, I was the youngest. Four men came in our circle. The girls choose who they want to be that evening, and I was left with the left-over; ended up with Jim since nobody chose him. Later that evening, Evelyn came telling me she likes Jim. Translate that in a sibling way, I want what you have. I said sure. So, I told Jim, “Hey, my sister likes you.” Jim was insulted as if I was brushing him off. Anyway, to make a long story short; they got married. I was the bridesmaid, Godmother to their first-born and then some. Her second son posted this on CBC News. And here I am, sharing the best love story for today.
