Steven & Derlyn miss the tight and friendly bonds with neighbours they experienced in the Philippines. Some days it’s just too hot to do much of anything there, and the solution where in the neighbourhood they were staying was an outdoor “shack” where neighbours would hang out to eat a snack, have a beer, play mahjong, watch basketball, or some other group activity.
Steven is a programmer and enjoys playing ukulele with their son, Caleb. He’s originally from Langley, BC, but spent a couple of years alternating between living here and in the Philippines. He’s worked in software development since age 17, and has worked on InteGrade (and InteGrade Pro), Principalm, Rubrix and BeLooped.
Derlyn is originally from the Philippines. She works at the Cascades Casino in Langley.
Caleb is in French immersion and enjoys video games. He also plays ukulele, flute and saxophone… so Steven and Derlyn are looking forward to a sound-proof room in the commons!
