Double celebrations – twice happiness PDF Print E-mail

It was a simple and happy birthday celebrations at the abode of the Chio Family last July.  It was the birthdays of Ashlee Louise Chio who turned 2 years old and Adaf Vincent Chio who turned 10 years old.

Close relatives and friends came and greeted the birthday celebrants. They are the lovable children of Kaye Chio and the grandchildren of my good friends, Dr. Eduard Chio and Dr. Judith Chio. They prepared a sumptuous dinner to satisfy the guests. And for folks in my age, it is one occasion I don’t like to miss because I get to know the new generations of my “old” and chummy friends.  Our children are now married and have their own family to take care of.

Ed is the chief medical director of Tawi-Tawi Provincial Hospital while Judith is a successful private dentist of this city. Judith became one of my closest friends way back in the ‘80’s and we were part of the charter members of Rotary Central Club in 1989. It was the first all women Rotary Club of this city that recruited media man (now District 1 Congressman) Erbie Fabian as an honorary member. Way back then, barkada outings was simply going to Caragasan beach and partying at each other homes.
