It’s a Small World After All

You know that song we sang at United Nations Day when we were kids?  “There is just one moon and one golden sun, And a smile means friendship to everyone. Though the mountains divide and the oceans are wide, It’s a small world after all.”

Well, last week I was hired by my ninang (godmother) to bring around her daughter who was home for a visit in Bukidnon.  Cathy (the daughter of my ninang) was my schoolmate at Del Monte School way back 80s and this was the first time we saw each other after – what – 25 years!

So we brought Cathy, her husband (Emerson) and 2-year-old daughter, her older sister (Babet) and a neighbor (Edna) to the Zip Zone Dahilayan Adventure Park.  As we were paying the entrance fee into Forest Park, this lady in violet came up to me with extended arms.  I looked up and – lo! – it was Cecile, another old schoolmate from Del Monte School!  She was in town with most of her siblings along with their elderly dad.  The last time Cecile and I had seen each other was about 12 years ago.  She now lives in California with her family.

That day was a Wednesday and you really don’t expect to see anyone you know at a leisure park way up in the mountains on a weekday.  But we did and I’m so glad!  =)
