Here In Manila. After Two Years.*

I have planned on creating a really detailed post on what I did in Manila. But after all that has happened, I don’t think I have that much power to do so. Anyway, here’s what I did when I was there:

  • Went to visit the Pasig office of a previous employer. Saw some friends there.
  • The day I arrived, I met up with Cess (a former housemate) because I will be staying with her. Had some coffee and went to the ‘new’ house (they changed houses the last time I was there). Then went to Pork Barrel. The videoke room we used there was the same one that Cess, Allan (another former housemate), and I were in two years ago celebrating my birthday.
  • After Pork Barrel, I learned how to cook pesto and they were drinking again at the rooftop of the ‘new’ house. Was up until around 6am. I did not drink any alcohol. Was busy drinking water and softdrinks the whole time.
  • Went to UP for some reminiscing. Chos! I was really surprised that there were already gates at every entrance and Cess said that the guards even ask for your ID if you want to go inside. Got myself a UP jacket. Hehe.
  • Met up with some high school classmates in Cubao. Then went to Denny’s house for some inuman.
  • Ate at KFC! Yeehaw! :)
  • Got myself a new alumni ID. I would have to ask the UPAA though about the payment because I paid for a lifetime membership fee and I got was an ID that lasted for a year. Will call them up soon (after the Ondoy thingie has passed much).
  • Experienced going through Manila flood in a taxi. Okay, this is the first time that I had experienced such a flood there. And I was inside a taxi going to the airport and water was already inside the taxi. Good thing I was able to reach the airport safely. I wondered what happened to manong driver.
  • Missed Sky’s birthday. Boohoo!
  • Flight got cancelled and I had to stay in the airport until my next flight. My flight was cancelled at around 2pm and my next flight was at 6am. So there.

A New Book Each Month

reading books is love
Reading is love.

Reading has been something that I have been doing for years. And I have this much love for books. Right now, if you would come and visit my room, you would notice that books are seemingly everywhere! They are taking up too much space, in my opinion. Even my bookshelves are filled with them there is nowhere else to store them. Continue reading
