[The CLEVER, CREATIVE, LIVELY and COMMUNICATIVE, but SENTIMENTAL EDWIN P. DAIWEY, my fraternity brother and friend; is shown in the photo above. Brod EDWIN is happily married to the gracious and beauteous OFELIA LEYRAN ROSES, a former airline stewardess who is a native of Alfonso, Cavite. The marital consortium of Brod EDWIN and his wife OFELIA have brought forth into this world, their only son, KARL CHRISTIAN R. DAIWEY who works as Manager for Mobilization at ACCENTURE with work assignment in Chengdu, China. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROD EDWIN!!!!]
With flowing salt-and-pepper locks and bristle which EDWIN now sport,
EDWIN almost resembles the Chinese DESHUN WANG1, of sort;
He has become a physical fitness buff,
Still sage and bright; he could write HAIKUs2 off the cuff!
[The photo above shows the octogenarian DESHUN WANG, the hottest Grandpa in Beijing, China nowadays. The resemblance with BIRTHDAY BOY, BROD EDWIN DAIWEY, seems not much odd. Well, Brod EDWIN perhaps must turn much more hirsute to ascend to the title of becoming PH’s DESHUN WANG with such a sinewy and sexy physique.]
Being an ARIAN — he is LOVING, ROMANTIC and SINCERE,
Am sure Brod Romy Matias3 won’t let go off his ROMANTIC moniker;
That would leave LOVING & SINCERE as Edwin’s signature TRAITS —
Brod Romy could hold on to his TITLE and keep it in his CRATES!
EDWIN is a topnotch and excellent WRITER,
Snagged lots of awards, feathers unto his MITER;
He was NEDA’s ACE on Communications DEVELOPMENT4,
Wrote a lot of publications5 for our nation’s UPLIFTMENT!
EDWIN is a BAGUIO Boy and he truly loves NATURE,
Wont to savoring breeze and gallivants at lands of PASTURE;
Loves to snap those quaint SELFIES,
As though carving nice woodcraft with sharp-edged EPEES!
As a TRUE ARIAN too, EDWIN is never SUBMISSIVE,
He would not just accept a situation; he’s quite INVESTIGATIVE—
But when a consensus is born after much INVESTIGATION,
EDWIN will raise his hands up without HESITATION!
It’s an ARIES nature, to make sacrifices for his offspring,
It’s part of his character, and of his inner wellspring;
But more than that — he loves, adores his WIFE…
Perhaps would love her forever, even in the AFTERLIFE!
As those born in the YEAR of the SNAKE6,
They’re much DETERMINED– for FAILURE they HATE;
They’re CLEVER, CREATIVE and truly LIVELY,
They’re COMMUNICATIVE but SENTIMENTAL…well, that’s LOVELY!!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROD EDWIN!!!!
[Legend: 1 – Mr. DESHUN WANG is an octogenarian Chinese from Beijing, who really was so determined at avoiding mental and physical stagnation. For which reason; he explored new skills and ideas while devoting ample time to daily exercise. At 80, he walked the runway for the first time, and his physique caused a national sensation. He takes obvious joy in subverting China’s image of what it means to be old. He was born in the northeastern city of Shenyang in 1936, one of nine children of a cook and a stay-at-home mother. At 14, a year after the Communist Party came to power in 1949, he began working as a streetcar conductor.
2 – HAIKU is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.
3 – Brod ROMY R. MATIAS is acknowledged as the MOST ROMANTIC brod during our college days in UP Diliman as members of the PI OMICRON FRATERNITY. Well, I am sure Brod ROMY would not want that TITLE as the MOST ROMANTIC brod wrested from him. And Brod EDWIN P. DAIWEY would surely allow Brod ROMY to continue holding on to that TITLE.
4 – Brod EDWIN P. DAIWEY retired as one of the top officers of the COMMUNICATIONS DEVELOPMENT Department of NEDA in 2013. NEDA is acronym for the National Economic Development Authority. The NEDA is the Philippines’ independent economic development and planning agency.
