Thanks Liza for creating this meme; Liza by the way is the author of This Is My Life, The Youngster's Park and Mommy Liza's Lutong Bahay. It talks all about couple (husbands and wives) and their lives and none else. Join us by clicking the badge. I wrote my entry a day later and so here it is:
I was named Cecilia by my parents on the day I was born in Tarlac City, next to the city (Nueva Ecija) where my family lives. Raised by my grandparents ( mother side) in Isabela till I was ready to go to school. I attended school in Nueva Ecija and a working student in Manila. I am a pure blood Filipina, who speaks Visaya, Tagalog and a little bit of English. My parents are Ilocanos but never speak their dialect, no wonder why my sibs and I never learn to speak Ilocano. I have 4 siblings, 3 brothers and a sister who died before I was born. Prior to coming to United States, I served as a missionary for LDS church for 18 months in Mindanao where I met new friends, learned new dialect (Visaya) as well as shared the gospel to the people there. Then, went to Malaysia where I met my hubby; after a year of courtship, migrated to U.S. and got married in 2001. With regards to my personality, I am a simple person, serious and sensitive at times, loving wife, mother, daughter and sibling, and a good friend to many.
My husband on the other hand is named after one of the prophets in the Bible named, Matthew who was born and raised in New Mexico. Second child in the family where his parents and siblings call him Matt but prefers to be called Matthew. He has a brother and a sister, and two nephews with a Welsh blood and an ancestors migrated in the U.S. in 1800's. Before he moved in Texas, he was working at the USPS as a mail carrier for three years. Then he decided to change career, applied a job at Texas Instruments (T.I.), was hired and is now working in the manufacturing for 8 years now. He earned associate degree as well as Bachelor Degree in Anthropology, but never used it. My husband is a very patient, simple, loving person, a devoted family man who adores our son so much. Well, he can be a critique sometimes, but an understanding person.
