Happy birthday, Papa

Today is the 78th birthday anniversary of my father.

You can read more about him in the family section of this website.

Or just take a peek at two profiles, and one of the pieces he wrote.

Monina Allarey Mercado’s profile published in The Graphic.

Nick Joaquin’s profile published in the Free Press.

My father’s essay on Filipino racism.

    He wasn’t being hyperbolic. What happened was instead of doing something genuine about the inequalities, we tried a dictatorship under Marcos which made things worse.

    i cant believe it. i’ts 1966 and your father was already talking about gross inequalities? gross! it looks like nothing good ever happened to us indeed after 40 freaking years. i hope he was just being hyperbolic.

    usually, if a person is dead, their birthday becomes their birth anniversary ๐Ÿ™‚
