  8. Auntie Nene,
    I remember the first time when you came back from Canada – such a star- when you brought those pasalubong and i got my t-shirt with a logo of Vancouver and the Turkey meat, it tasted like a chicken and yet it was a big piece of leg (massingoh) but one thing that really captured me was the strong smell of freshness of those items coming inside from those balikbayan boxes and I thought – wow i like this thing and i want to experience this life……. and that’s the start of my dream – the Canadian Dream….. dreams do come true.
    Thank you for inspiring me.
    Goobye for now and we love you Auntie Nene….

    My beloved Aunt, I missed you so much. Back when you were still in San Diego, Manila I regularly go there from Sikatuna with Lola Titay when I was little and always find you so busy sewing but still always asked me what I want to eat. Even without Lola Titay I would sneak and leave Sikatuna just to go to your place to spend the day. Rest in peace Auntie! Gone but never forgotten. I love you Auntie.
