The Roces Family Around the World

Meeting with Marcos Victor Roces

Yesterday I spent the day with Marquitos Roces. We caught up before lunch then had a nice leisurely lunch of lumpia (Lola Enchay's recipe with camote), gyoza, and red rice. It was very nice to catch up with the family as the last time I was with them I did not get to spend much time with them.

Yesterday we went over some old pictures of Lolo Rafael and then read his handwritten notebooks of his own discoveries of the family tree. I'm very excited to scan these books and get them posted into the family archives. There are also lots of photos of both Lolo Rafael and Lola Enchay (endearingly referred to by Tito as "Papa" and "Mama") The stories that I'm seeing unfold are making me quite jealous that I did not get to know Lola Enchay better nor did I get to ever meet Lolo Rafael.

After leafing through these pictures we went up to see his computer system. I was quite impressed with the Mac G5 and the large Cinema display. Having spend some time working that machine, I think it's time to stop being so cheap about my technology and move back to the apple roots that brought me into the technology world.

I will get together with him again today and possibly see another elder. I'm quite excited about all that is going on that I really cannot sleep between the excitement and the jetlag.


  • How jealous am I? Not only are you back at the motherland, eating all kinds of good food, fruits and delicacies, but you are surrounded by family. Family that has opened their hearts, homes and memories to you. Enjoy, enjoy and enjoy! Send our love to those who remember us and keep documenting and taking pictures. Wish we could be there! Much love, Joie
