Words that Should be in the Dictionary

Eight years ago I was very active in Yahoo! Chatrooms. And then accidentally invited to the Architectures and Engineers Chatroom, whereas chatters are very warm and friendly. That's why I enjoyed chatting and attended the room when no one is around. Months passed by and the topics about Engineering and Architecture could not be maintained in the room so ate "Miyaw" created an egroup where any information can be shared and posted. It was then named Architects, Engineers Atbp since other professionals also wanted to join the group. Soon the room was filled with regular chatters from day to day and kept on increasing every week. Actually the egroup does not just extend their help to chat mates by sharing ideas .  AEA also conducted bi-annual grand eyeballs and outreach programs, to help not only its members, but, in its small simple way, less fortunate citizens of the metropolis. Though I didn't had the chance to join on their activities during those days because I got busy on my studies and part time work, I treasured the group and still has a part in me. Articles

I mentioned this because my current post are came from one of my Ate's in the group. When I conducted a research at Philippines' National Library, I got an eyeball with Ate Shery Ann Recta a.k.a. Princess_Donita because her work place is near the library. Before I go home, she gave me a remembrance, A compilation of Quotations, Articles, Short Stories and even a Novel in a CD. I put a caption on the CD that's why I didn't forget the date when she gave it to me, it was September 10, 2003, and still okay. I just want to share it to all of you. And for sure a lot more will be posted soon...
