It was a well-planned sixty-plus-five birthday celebration for Nora Alba Tinsay who celebrated her natal day with a dinner at their residence on June 7. The erratic weather did not bother the well-wishers who came to greet the celebrator. All cousins of the Solatorio clan were seated together.
Dinner started at 7:30 p.m. Everybody agreed that the delectable and mouth-watering food was something to rave about. The menu included her favorite “Pot Roast”. In order to savor all the preparations, we had to sample each dish as well as the pastries and local fruits.
On hand to welcome and entertain us was hubby Rudy T.
Surprise of the evening was his renovated garden, with blooms shrubs, potted plants and vines, and medicinal plants, especially for cholesterol.
The rain stopped and we had to say adieu to the celebrator and family. To Nora T., good health and God bless you and family.
Remember: Imitate those who imitate Christ. God speaks to those who are willing to listen.*
