Formula For Long Life: Joaquin Ligumbres

FORMULA FOR LONG LIFE. Joaquin Ligumbres is a hometown legend. He wrote poems in Binisaya, English and Spanish. He gave some copies to me for safekeeping and future publication because none of his family was into the literary arts. Sadly, I lost all of them when the earthquake struck in 2013.

Known to be a walking dictionary, he reportedly sired seven sons all named after him, as in Joaquin Uno, Joaquin Dos, Joaquin Tres, etc. At 76, he returned to school at the University of Bohol in the hope of getting a Bachelor of Arts degree. He never got to finish it.

A jack of all trades, he was already very old when he worked as our cemetery gardener, at which time I asked him how he was able to maintain his healthy physique. (Imagine ... in his 80s he could still do 20 push-ups using only three fingers on each hand !!!) His answer to my query was ... one glass of milk everyday. He lived to be almost a hundred. By the way, he and his best friend, my father, share the same date of birth. Tatay passed on at 81.

So, here I am with my nightly dose of a glass (aw, coffee-mug) of milk, reminiscing the goodness of the man my townmates would call Ngidz.

He must be smiling at me now from beyond the Milky Way. Cheers, Ngidz!

John 3:16-18 ESV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
