Happy Birthday JUNNIE!

This entry is dedicated to Junnie who is celebrating his birthday today!

I've only known Junnie for the past 7 months (since he migrated to Canada) and am quite speechless right now... so let's just take a look at the timeline before he was born --

1969 Jan 15, The Russian Soyuz 5 went into orbit. The crew then maneuvered to dock with Soyuz 4 and Yevgeny Khrunov became the first astronaut to transfer between linked capsules.

1969 Jan 23, NASA unveiled a moon-landing craft.

1969 Jan 26, California was declared a disaster area after two days of flooding and mud slides.

1969 Feb 5, US population reached 200 million.

1969 Feb 8, A meteor shower hit Mexico creating a luminance in the night sky as bright as day. A meteorite weighing over 1 ton fell in Chihuahua, Mexico.

1969 Feb 9, World's largest airplane, Boeing 747, made its 1st commercial flight.

1969 Feb 23, Pres. Nixon approved the bombing of Cambodia.

1969 Mar 1, After 88 weeks "Sergeant Pepper" dropped off the charts.

1969 Mar 2, 1st test flight of the supersonic Concorde.

1969 Mar 3, Apollo 9 blasted off from Cape Kennedy on a mission to test the lunar module. It made 151 Earth orbits over 10 days.

1969 Mar 12, Paul McCartney married Linda Eastman in London and ... on the other side of the globe, JUNNIE was born!


Thanks for teaching me the world of blogging!

My only contribution to this "maraton blog greeting" is a video of Junnie's attempt at tobogganing in the not-so-white Mount Chinguacousy Park.

I remember the first time I met Junnie and Mitzi, it was midnight when they got to our apartment. And we chatted like old friends till about 2AM. (Take note that this is the first time I've met both of them, and about 18 years since my husband last saw them).

We got friends whose been asking us about the do's and dont's in migrating, and they are the only ones who took our advice to the heart! I have never met a more organized and well prepared new immigrants like Junnie and Mitzi!

In this life, the finding and keeping of friends is one of the hardest things to do. With your family, it was easy. You just took in a couple who didnt have anything on their first night and 4 big boxes that cramped your stock room.

That moment of opening your house is one moment I knew we have lifetime friends here and that this place can never be a lonely one for us!

Thanks jo! wheeeee....ang taas ng boses ko sa video....
