Hooking up with Greg

I take pleasure in relaying that my very good friend and law school classmate, Greg Macaltao, is doing very well as a businessman in Vancouver. I hooked up with Greg in our recent Vancouver visit just to know how he is doing. I re-connected with him at Facebook and told him I would be in town. We met at a Starbucks outlet inside a grocery store near the place we parked. We had a nice time talking about the past, the present, and the future. Past: Greg was a good friend in law school, a seat mate in fact in Section B. Very good student, and studied at the fourth floor where the Ateneo MBA was housed, from early morning till class time. After law school and a few years of Manila law practice he moved to the U.S. to study masters in business in the U.S., and made a career shift from law to business. Present: He is Vancouver-based now, living near downtown and establishing a start-up export-import business with some partners. He buys goods/products from the Philippines, and ships it to Vancouver for distribution. What the product was, he didn't disclose at that time for superstitious reasons. Future: He hopes to make the first major shipment in a couple of months, and is wishing everything goes well. I'm sure it will. Way to go, Greg...
