Good Manners, Pinoy Style

by  Zeny "Lola Z" Ramos-Rosana

Lola Z’s book is very timely in this day and age to help, not only our youth but also people of all ages, build strong human relationships to keep our country’s vision alive. This book discusses the correct course of action and behavior in dealing with society. 

Lola Z, as she is fondly called by her grandchildren, resides in Dallas, Texas. She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Santo Tomas and worked at Philamlife Insurance Company in Manila for 15 years. When she migrated to the United States, she worked at the home office of Caltex Petroleum Corporation in Dallas, Texas. She loves to write and has published a few articles in English. When she visited the Philippines after 30 years in America, she was inspired to write about good manners, the Filipino way, which was serialized weekly for one year in Liwayway Magazine.
