Ninong ni Sabine

Dear Sabine, you were baptized on our wedding Anniversary (January 18) back in 2004. one of your Ninongs is Dr. Basel El-Sawalhi. He is our classmate back in medical school. I usually spend my free time at the library because unlike your Mom, I had to actually STUDY hard to pass the exams (She on the other hand pass those exams easily sometimes even without studying.) and whenever I need somebody to explain complex biochemical principles, I usually ask Basel. He can easily explain those principles to Dodo's like me. It's a gift. He was kind enough to agree to be your God Father despite of the fact that he is a Moslem.

He is also a Palestinian. After graduation he went back to his country to serve his people in Gaza Strip, Palestine.

We haven't seen him for a long time.

Pareng Basel, Our Prayers are with You, Your Family and all the People of the Book living in Palestine and Israel.

Hasalamu alaikum...

winner ang ninong ni sabine. kakaiba. hehe.

i hope you get in touch with your friends soon. i've been trying to reach my israeli friends, but they've all moved.

Yes. Basel is more Christ-like than some catholics and moslems I know.

I hope all our friends are safe from terrorist bombs launched from paleolithic type of rocket launchers ...and from those fired from US made F-16's
