You've gone a long way Eddie! You probably have the most intellectually challenging job among us all, and indeed challenging because you have the potential of influencing the development directions of these countries. I'm confident that you're doing your best to help eradicate global poverty.
I remember you as the science whiz kid, who's a conductor of electricity, lighting up the fluorescent bulb you were holding in your hand, to our bewilderment. Ms. Bermillo must have had a difficult time trying to act smarter than you!
I'm sorry to hear that your mother has passed away. She knew me very well. She always greeted me whenever I passed by your shop along J. Lukban Street. That was more than 40 years ago.
You look very well, very "prosperous" in your picture with Angel Racoma. Hope to see you in person. Yesterday, we just had a mini-reunion with Rudy Surla as the center of the get-together, not having seen him for the past 40 years. The group included Susan, Alot, Nemia/ Baby, Bert Padrigon, Roderic Serra, and Rudy's wife. Rudy treated us to lunch. Maybe, next time, you can be the sponsor, huh?
Hi Toti and DPS 67
Many thanks for the fotos...I was in the US last year and had a chance to chat with Joe Sales, Myrna and Marybeth. Wonderful feelings I tell you...talagang iba pag maraming taon na ang nakaraan. I have been blessed, very blessed indeed. I have already visited more than 75 countries and still travelling. I am still working as consultant to countries (governments) and donor agencies (World Bank, ADB, AID, United Nations, etc.) on matters pertaining to economy, development, employment, etc. despite the fact that am an engineer by profession...ang layo talaga. Heto nga. Most of my work are outside the country and I really avoid doing business here except when I was with the Department of Trade and Industry (during Vicente Paterno and GMA's time). I still could not commit (despite my urgent wanting) to see you all in April, I am committed to two difficult clients: Governments of Palestine and Montenegro. In my previous visits to Daet, I have met many people; Imelda and Yolanda attended my Mother's funeral. Ramona helped me with parent's bank accounts. Have met also Anggi Racoma (hope you still remember him) and he gave me the tel number of Edgar Tamayo, a pilot and Glianila\'s younger Brother. I have once visited Arce here in Manila before when she had cancer. Rudy Surla looked very fine and prosperous...he, he, he. I will also send you fotos when I can. Perhaps we can now load some of these fotos to the site, ha???? Hugsssss to all.
