Visiting my Uncle Sonny De Guzman
Jaen, Nueva Ecija, Philippines
February 2000

my uncle and aunt we (nieces and nephews) affectionately call "Daddy" and "Manang"; with their newly adopted baby girl and Qzedell

I am almost certain that they will have much better luck with their new daughter that their older son Jepu.

Jepu takes them to Cabanatuan City (10 miles away from Jaen). with Manang and another aunt "Inang"; they are at Jollibee's, the Philippine answer to McDonald's
