Back to Regular Programming

We were constantly checking Twitter and Facebook last night for weather updates, flood alerts or school announcements. We didn't want to unnecessarily subject the eldest son to inconvenience (aka traffic, flooded streets, suspended classes, etc) similar to what happened last time when he flew back to Manila. Another day to wait it out wouldn't hurt, I suppose. Alas, there was no suspension of classes for DLSU even after the seemingly nonstop rains in Manila over the weekend. Floodwater along Taft has already subsided so by 3am, Matt was up and ready to take the 5am flight to Manila and go back to the place he is sharing with 3 other friends from Cebu. Though no more extended break for him this time, the silver lining is, there are no classes to make up for (well... so far...) and the Christmas break stays as scheduled - a better deal if you ask me. our 3 stooges with the eldest son back at uni, this mascot makes 3

Birthdays and a Christening

A good friend and a niece celebrated their birthdays last Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, a cousin's youngest daughter was baptized. So this was a weekend made for foodies like us, hopping from one eating place to the next. Friday was dinner at Little Saigon, Big Bangkok near the Barangay Hall of Guadalupe. It was our first time, but we've heard early on that food was good. True enough, we tasted the goodness ourselves. I would have wanted to take food shots but refrained from doing so as we were just guests. Sayang, I should have, inconspicuously, no? Next time. spicy mieng kam, photo from their website That same Friday evening, I was also invited to Grand Con for Islacom's (a former employer) reunion. Food would have been sumptuous Chinese. More than the food, it would have been great to see former colleagues from the mid-90s, but I had to beg off due to the conflict in schedules. Anyway... Last Saturday was dinner catered by Creative Cuisine at Gymbor
