Dinner With Kuya Bodjie and Marvin
The lovely Arlene Delloso-Uypitching decided to throw a last-minute small dinner party last Friday night for Marvin Flores, a Physics graduate from Silliman University (a former student of mine) who is our first summa cum laude
in 24 years. Kuya Bodjie
(Pascua, of all our Batibot memories!) also happened to be in town for an acting workshop, and so we all had a grand time listening to Marvin tell his inspiring story of success and striving despite so much hard circumstances. Patrick Chua -- Dumaguete's finest dentist and pâtissier
(aren't those two jobs such perfect combination?) -- cooked the great paella dinner...
With Dessa Quesada-Palm, Moses Joshua Atega, yours truly,
Kuya Bodjie Pascua, and Annabelle Lee-Adriano.
Kuya Bodjie, Annabelle Lee-Adriano, and the kids. Listening to Marvin Flores tell his story over red wine. Don Ramas-Uypitching, Jacqueline Veloso-Antonio (who was just recently promoted!),
and Patrick Chua.
I will write about Marvin and all my other former students who have made such a great impact on my life one of these days. (Maybe tomorrow.) Their story needs to be told. Even old teachers like me -- and all the rest of the world -- can learn a thing or two from them.
