I was a dreamy eyed teen ager always hoping that my friends, children of Mayor Toning Acharon, would go to the resort so that I can borrow their very precious Walkman. That was my only way then to get connected to Air Supply songs. It's understandable because we were still living then in a world free from all the luxuries brought about by technology. Moreso, I was still coping up then with a life I thought I won't be able to overcome. We were orphaned and just starting to move on by starting a new life with our dear grandmother. Basic needs always prevailed over whatever simple material luxuries. Being able to listen to Air Supply would mean having the luxury of living in a dreamworld even for just an hour or two. I have been treasuring those memories because it motivated me to strive harder in order to become a better person, a best wife to my husband and a mom that rocks for my children.

I am now a woman happily married for seventeen years to a guy who is a good provider. We are blessed with half a dozen all-girls children who are all bubbly and promising. We both have quite stable jobs. We are gearing towards a life full of good things specially for our children. We dream of seeing them all grown up, God fearing and successful in all endeavours they choose to undertake!
