Friday 18 February saw the christening of Ayana Angele Fleming Espinosa, at the church in Santa Maria II. Ayana is the youngest daughter of Irene Espinosa and Drew Fleming; and sister to Andeyne and Iman. Drew is well known around Balibago for his maps of Fields Avenue, (from MacArthur Highway to Friendship Highway), Hensonville and Diamond, which help us avoid being in places we shouldn’t be. Drew also designs and maintains web sites.
