My Mom

This photo of my mom was taken at her optical clinic in Dipolog City when she and my dad were still dating. They dated when they were both in their late 20's and got married at 30 years of age.

My mom grew up with no mother because her mom died giving birth to her and her twin brother. Her two aunts, both spinsters(from whom I got my first and middle names from) acted as her mother. My mom is the kind of person that can find a friend anywhere. She strikes up a conversation with anyone. If she's in a queue, you'll find her talking to the people beside her.

She is very friendly and unforgetable that at every Alumni Homecoming at CEU, her professors always look for her among the attendees. How can they forget her? From the countless stories she told us about her college life, it is obvious that she was the teacher's pet. Not because she 'greases up' but because she's the class clown and very popular amongst her classmates and friends.

I got my love of cooking and baking from her. She is a very good cook although it's hard to believe that when she married my dad she didn't know how to. Yes, I was surprised when I learned about it, it was my dad who taught her how to cook. She even managed to burn the eggs. :) She didn't learn to cook because her aunts and maids did everything in the house. That's why when I was in my teens, she made sure our maids taught me the basics of cooking. She was a working mom but she was always there everytime she needs to be in school for us.

I could go on and on about her, but bottomline is I am so lucky to have her as my mom. To mommy and all of you moms out there, Happy Mother's Day!
