Our niece DenDen is one of the “Teen-Age Fililpina Beauties” featured in this post. Den recently competed in the “Search for Mr and Miss YES-O-MODEL 2016. ” YES-O is an acronym for The Youth for Environment in Schools’ Organization. The competition was held at our niece’s high school in Guimaras.
Our 14-year-old nephew, Sharwin, was attacked at Santa Teresa H.S. on Guimaras Island the second last week of the school year. Our nephew, who along with his 16-year-old sister Shaina, lives with us while their mother works as a domestic helper in Kuwait, was playing a ball game on the school grounds while he waited for his sister to finish her last class of the day.
Niece Shaina and nephew Sharwen are now enrolled in public school in mango land, Guimaras, my asawa's home province. We plan to follow them next month. Because the kids had a new grading period start in Iloilo, my asawa and I felt it would be a good time to bring them back to their old stomping grounds and stay at "The Compound" until we arrived.
