The Month to
Celebrate Life

       May is the month when everything blooms.  The long winter is over and everything turns green again.  The flower devotion, the santacruzan and the fiestas makes May festive in the Philippines.   May is the beginning of outdoor fun in Canada and Northern States... strolling or rollerblading or biking in the parks.... might even be warm enough to go camping, boating and fishing.  Whatever we do, let's celebrate life with our families and friends.  Don't forget to spend some time to enjoy and be thankful for God's creations.

You've Got Mail !!!
Nelson's Wish # 2

      Nell's wish for a Grand Reunion is slowly coming least we can see it happening within the next 3 years.  Our King of Wishful Thinking has a second wish that we are trying to work get everyone on-line by the end of the year.
     To get an email account is not a problem.  There are lots of free email account such as MSN Hotmail, Yahoo, ICQMail and it is quite easy to sign-up for one.  In North America, few free internet access is available through AltaVista, Freenet, 3Web and others.   If these are available in the Philippines, that will solve part of the problem.
   Cyber Cafes is another way to get online.  We heard it's only P50 per hour to access the net.  Enjoy a cup of coffee while getting updated or sending email to our classmates.  Another way is to set up strategic location where an ISP account holder can share his access once in a while with others. 
     If you have any creative ideas on how to tackle this one, we will welcome them with great enthusiam.  We have eight more months to work on this one but with God's help, it will happen.

Family of the Month

The Ceña Family
     This family is a solid gold when it comes to loving and caring.   Their desire to bring up theirs kids closer to their grandparents prompt them to decide to go back to the Philippines when they had the shot for Australia.  Nell & Beng want to raise their  3 kids: Kevin,  Kim & Kingsley in our homeland to strengthen their Filipino values.  No regrets in their decision because they now have more time with the kids than when they were in Australia.
We need your Pictures
     We need you or your family pictures.  As of now, we have two places where we can scan your pictures... Riz in LA or Val in Toronto.  We can only work from what we have.  Please send us your picture if you want them updated on The AfterMath.  We welcome old photos from the campus, too.  If you have access to a scanner and email (especially in the Philippines) please let us know if you are willing to help collect jpegs for us.
