    Hi Lanelle,

    I hope you still remember me. I used to be your neighbor in Area 17 many many years ago. We used to play in your swimming pool made by Tito Billy. I was formerly Candy Lagmay, and our family lived in Area 17 and then 14. My father, Fred, passed away last Dec 2005, but my mom, Leti is still in U.P. Purok Heneral Aguinaldo on campus. She is 82.
    I saw a feature of your Crescent Moon Cafe on t.v. yesterday in a show called Balitang America hosted by Gel Santos Relos. I was thrilled to see your ceramic studio and the restaurant that served healthy innovative dishes that are made with the large leaves. I live in Foster City, CA and have been here since 1983. I will be a grandmother in September after raising 4 now adult children. I hope to see you when we travel home.
