Just an Ordinary Dream

It was a late night in December 2002 when a very good friend, Wilson Justo, and I, while waiting for a bus ride home, made a resolution that five years from then, by December 1, 2007, we should be driving our own car.

Fast forward to the present, it seems like Wilson has fulfilled that dream way before that deadline:

For me, I didn’t really intend to break that dream. It just so happened that I needed to re-channel my priorities.

To Wilson, congratulations!
