About the Book

Seeing or meeting all the 14 presidents of my original country is considered by some people as "very lucky". Here it could be found out how "luck" worked on my side in the span of 54 years from age 7 in 1938 to 1992. The author considers it, however, as plain endeavor of seeing the first Phillipine president of 1898, Emilio Aguinaldo, up to the incumbent President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. From boyhood to manhood, the author is proud of having seen or met the past, future, and present rulers of his original country.
