Ling Ling in Manila

My classmate since kinder school days at Silliman, Jennifer Ling Ling Jornales-Cinco came home from Virginia for a month long vacation.

She came with her family, her husband Jun Jun Cinco a nurse, and son RJ.

Ling Ling treated us for dinner at the Golf club of Camp Aguinaldo where she was staying.
Her sister Jo Anne is based in Camp Aguinaldo with her husband who is an officer in the Armed Forces.

Present at the dinner were Bobord and wife Marsha, Alex Abregana and me and my wife Ruby and son Joshua.

Every balikbayan always says if only the compensation here was sufficient, they would prefer to stay in the Philippines.

Ling Ling said that if you have a good paying job here, better stay because it is not that easy abroad.

Ling ling is an old classmate. I think we were classmates in kindergarter at Silliman.

We were classmate in the elemntary school days, high school and even in college also at Silliman, at the College of Business Administration.

She has a teenage son RJ who is in the second year high school equivalent.

She hails from Canlaon City, north of Negros Oriental, where the famous Canlaon Volcano sits.

However, I think her family skipped Canlaon City because their mother is based here in Manila.

Her husband meanwhile comes from Leyte province.
