I celebrated my third birthday with President Cory Aquino

a Cory doll, that is. :)

It was March 1987, a year after the Edsa Revolution and right before my mom left for the States. Everyone loved the new President, including my family (my parents joined the revolution, i think, oh the youth of the eighties). My lolo bought me a Cory doll and put her on my cake. The food has long been digested of course, but we kept the doll, and I found her again, as my personal tribute to Pres. Cory. Ako lang yata ang may ganitong manika. Yata. Hehehe.

awi, niknok, and cory
