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.
Got Mail !!!
Nelson's Wish # 2
for a Grand Reunion is slowly coming true...at 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 on...to 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

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.
