At last, the balikbayan box from NYC, USA via Johnny Ocean, came today with chock full of books, bags, candies and clothes for our adopted community in Alabang, Muntinlupa, Philippines, we fondly call HAPI-Riles. It is a nice feeling to make someone happy and HAPI.

to the HAPI-Riles Poject implementer, Jamie del Rosario Martinez.
