Lolo Ninoy at 17

Before the Aquino Museum was opened. A lot of "digging" had to be done. Aquino memorabilia had to be collected. Pictures, clothes, news clippings, etc...

This was the picture that shocked my Lola and parents. This was the pic of my Lolo that looked like me!!!



My Lola said that both of us had small "dumbo-like" ears. She called them dumbo-like since they were "flying". So with my ears, wearing a baseball cap would only emphasize them more.

Lolo Ninoy went to the Korean War as a correspondent at age 17. Wow... Who can actually say that? Did I do anything significant or extraordinary at age 17? Not as extraordinary like my Lolo!

This pic can be seen at the Aquino Museum in Tarlac. My friends who've been there agree that I do look like my Lolo based solely on this picture...

No surprises here. He's your lolo anyway. That's just the rules of genetics. Be very surprised if you look like someone who isn't your relative. LOL.

what a resemblance! actually, even at your lolo's later years, i still can see a glimpse of you in him. when his old videos were played again last week, there were angles of him that's so you. =)

you really had the genes of AQUINO. Shocking, but he's your Lolo and I am proud that you don't only got his features, but also you carry out your Lolo and Lola's manners.

Yep Jiggy...you are your lolo's apo! You're lucky to have inherited his good looks (not to mention your mother's). ;-)

But your uncle Bam (looks) and your lolo Paul (voice) REALLY reminded me of your lolo NINOY! =0

annecy said...

i think most of you Aquino boys looked a bit like Lolo Ninoy (can i also call him that? hehehe)... well, no matter how you look, the good thing is you inherit your Lolo Ninoy and Lola Cory's good traits and values.
