LIGHTS ... CAMERA ... ACTION ... CUT!!! STOP BLINKING!!! THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR VISION!! The MOVIE STAR you see featured on the far left of the poster directly below and smack dab at the CENTER of the one on the right is, indeed, our very own Dr. GENEVIEVE ABA TAKUSI MAKIA!!!! (Class of 1990)
STORMING "THE STORM"!!! PLEASE CLICK ON PICTURE TO THE LEFT TO VIEW PICTURES OF THE MOVIE PREMIERE! Genevieve on the set of "THE STORM", a ZONETAK STUDIO Production. Poster of the Upcoming Movie "BETHANY" She plays a minor but very vital role in "THE STORM" which premieres on Saturday March 29th 2014, (See Poster above left), but she is the Lead Actress in "BETHANY", which premieres in the Fall, with shooting starting in April. Some might be surprised at this "revelation", but I am certainly NOT one of them, because it has ALWAYS been apparent to me that there was an ACTRESS lurking behind the PHARMACIST persona that Aba Takusi Makia has carried around for years now. When I found out she WON THE DRAMA/THEATER PRIZE at her 1990 SBC Graduation, my reaction was "NO WANDA", not "HOW MANAGE??"!! (LOL!) Wish her the very best as she navigates between all 4 of the major roles she now occupies: Wife, Mother, Pharmacist & Actress!!
Dr. Genevieve Takusi MAKIA turned 40, her marriage turned 10, her wedding gown still fits 2 adorable CARATS after, & her CAT's even more in love with her now than he was a decade ago! To celebrate, Dr. & Dr. Mrs. MAKIA decided to "host" ExSSA-HOUSTON's April Meeting at The STRAITS Asian Bistro & Lounge, treating the entire Chapter to an exquisite evening of Wining & Dining!

CLICK ON IMAGE ABOVE TO VIEW PHOTO ALBUM! FLASHBACK TO GOLDEN JUBILEE 2012 … MR. ROGER HAND REMINISCES! (Shared with his permission)
The year started for us with a trip back to Cameroon to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Saker Baptist College, where we taught from 66 to 68, and where we met and married. We wondered if there would be anyone there who knew us, and worried that it would be a big anticlimax and spoil our treasured memories. We arrived at Douala airport to be met by a loud cry of “Mr Haaaand” as not one but 9 ladies, all in matching dresses, met us. All our anxieties evaporated in an instant. Carol was presented with a lovely bunch of tropical flowers and one lady threw her arms around Roger; “You taught me Maths, parallelograms!”, she said. We were looked after overnight, and then driven the 30 miles to Saker the next day.
