Having worked in an ad agency starting in the late 1980s to the early 1990s, I remember when the competitive edge in ad copy was to be able to convince clients of what was better-tasting in food, what was more effective as dirt remover and better-scented in bath or laundry soaps, or which brand of shampoo was a more effective dandruff remover and hair softener. Cost or affordability was also a main selling point.

I don’t know exactly how it happened, but by some strange alchemy, time and distance were spanned, and I was once again a child of seven living with my parents, siblings, aunts and uncles and grandfather under one roof (Chinese-style) in our huge house in Binondo. And seated beside my mother at breakfast, watching my Tia Mercedes, across from us, dunking her churros into a small cup of thick chocolate and hearing her voice addressing my mother: “Que dices, Ching?” (Mamang’s name was Consolacion, but her nickname was Ching) “Vamos a llevar estas criades esta tarde al Jardin Botanico?”
