If you’ve been reading my blog, you’d notice I’ve been writing eulogies for friends and former students. I remember my boyfriend telling me one time that he doesn’t know how to feel about eulogies–people should be saying nice things to one another when they’re alive, not when they’re dead. I wanted to argue, but
I think I was busy eating blueberry cheesecake that time, he has a point.
So today, let’s celebrate a birthday for a change. The birthday girl: Ilitz.
She’s the cousin of my sister’s roommate in college. To make it simple, I used to stay in their flat in Edgefield Plains before my sister and I moved out (to the next building).
Engr. Ilitz is one of the 106,600 professional Filipinos in Singapore. She works hard, plays harder.
Three things I like about her:
1. her appetite for travel
2. her sweetness to the love of her life, Red (aka Sachi, actually that’s their term of endearment) and to everybody else
3. her cupcakes and muffins and all baked goodness deelight! yumyumyum.
I only know of a few people who are sincerely kind, and Tita Ilitz is one of them
(I’m writing this so I can have a plate of her cupcakes when I return to Singapore).
