Winnie Posadas Santiago
In 1980, my mom decided to buy a house in Antipolo and move their. For a kid at 13 years old this was the worst decision ever made. Imagine moving to the "bundoks" was what I said that time. All my friends were in Manila and when I started school in Antipolo I thought I was going to die. Then...I met Winnie who goes to school in Manila but lives in the same subdivision where my Mom bought the house. Only then did I know that everything was going to be fine. Winnie and I have been friends for 33 years which males her the second oldest friend I have. As with Maruja, we also went our separate ways when I went to the US but, the distance did not change how much she means to me.
