    Elisa I know my grandmother enjoys cooking dinuguan and singing unfamiliar songs from the 50’s. I know that she wears red lipstick- always slightly smudged- and smells like rose water. I know the basics. However, I didn’t realize just how much I didn’t know. Imagining someone so old, wise, and experienced at your age is a bit unsettling. My lola has been an important figure to me my whole life, and it’s hard to register the fact that she’s lived so many different experiences even before me. These experiences that I’ve learned include her childhood, struggles, and stages of growth which shaped her into the strong, level-headed woman she is today. Elisa DiGiuilio, then Elisa Javelosa, was born into a wealthy family in 1941 in Jaro, Illoilo. Her childhood was very different to mine. Her father owned farms, where her favorite pastime…

After every sentence, it was…but I use it to communicate with friends and family. I think she made a very good point here, Generation X, is a…

What I would say is that this gentlewoman who loved me from the bottom of the Earth until the crashing stars was the godmother of my biological father. I have a…

Summers with my grandmother was a hassle. She is a grandmother of six grandchildren, a Christian who is very…
