Happy Wednesday to you all. We are all gathered again at Couple's Corner. For this week, we will be introducing our father and father in law. Since I do not have a photo of my father in law, let me just introduce my cool papz!
Papa and his junior on Chrismas 09

This is my father, hubby's father in law. His name is Ramier Florin Lopez Sr., 53 years old Filipino with a  Macao blood running in his veins. He used to practice Muslim religion but for his love to my mother he was converted into a catholic and married my mother in a catholic church.  Although he doesn't go to catholic church very often, at least he visits during Christmas and New Year. Lol. My papa is popular with his nickname, Tagalog. It is what people are calling him in town because he used to speak Tagalog or Filipino language back then. I guess he used Tagalog language when he courted my mother to impress her. My father  used to be a good provider for being a carpenter during the day, fisherman at night and cockfight doctor every Sunday. Nowadays, he is just helping my mother with her little store in town. 
My papa is a very cool father although he has this very bad drinking habit that always cause fight between him and my mother. Well, he is my father and I love him dearly no matter what. He has this funny side of him that make us, his children laugh. He is my/our protector from mom's beating before. I can't forget that one particular day in my childhood when mom scolded me and was about to beat me with the bamboo sticks in her hand when dad blocked it so he got all the beating. But don't get me wrong, dad beaten me too but not as hard as mom's. My mama is the tiger and my papa is just the cat. He doesn't care if people call him under de saya or under mom's skirt. He loves her, eh? Anyway, I got all my father's features: the face, the ears and the height.
