Two were lost last weekend: Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao’s bout with Floyd Mayweather, and Evangeline Escobillo’s life. “Tita Vangie,” as I have called her after we have moved on from our source and reporter roles to being friends, was always full of life that it is hard to imagine she is no longer alive. I consider her one of my most memorable mentors, the kind who have contributed to the shaping of my career as a business journalist.
I had to drive on the other side of the road. Drivers in Australia stay on the left lane and drive from the right side of the car. For me, that’s the wrong side of the road and the wrong side of the car.
