Our eldest sister, Nieves Erlinda Ruiz-Mateo, celebrated her 78th birthday last May 29, 2011 with colleagues from the Leyte Normal School and from the University of the Philippines Tacloban (where she once taught), family, kin members and friends.

It was also our 3-month old grandson, Kenji’s first chance to meet her Lola – the eldest of a brood of seven Ruizes (with me being the youngest).

As expected, I had to snap some shots. Here’s what I came up with… comics!

I turned another year older last Saturday, October 2, and this time Ludette and I decided to go visit our daughter studying there, my sisters and their families in Cebu and spend the day with them.

It has been some time since I last visited the Queen City, so off we went. A very much needed respite it turned out to be – great time with family,  and a chance to meet old friends, too.
