Reunions: 15 Years since "Kiddie School" Part 1




It was the sudden passing of Paul, one of our elementary school batchmates that convinced us to push through with a grand reunion.  He was 28.

Paul is the first boy from the right on the front row.

Someone had posted one of our class pictures on Facebook, tagged everyone and began a riot reminiscing spree. Soon a reunion party was being organized virtually. Paul was one of those who really wanted to have a reunion party.  He was even egging me to help him organize it.  A few weeks after that, we heard news of his passing...

Home, Happiness, and Häagen-Dazs




A House is not a Home



"I am a city boy who works in the province", goes the first line of my blogger profile.  That means on top of the stressful days and nights in the office writing reports and beating deadlines, or working under the scorching heat of the sun especially during plant maintenance shutdowns, I go home to an empty room, have to cook for myself and eat while having a one way conversation with the television. Blah. Bleh. Blah.

Because of this, my weekends have become all the more focused not only on recharging and relaxation, but more importantly, spending quality time with my loved ones. The 2-hour rush home is always a build up of increasing excitement... and the best way arrive Home is with some awesome "pasalubong", of course!

Awesome Pasalubong! Häagen-Dazs Caramel Biscuit & Cream
