It’s 10:40PM and I am seated at the top bunk of a dorm room with my travel buddies waiting for the time when I will officially turn 25.
Yikes. I am about to turn a year older and to be honest, I am just thankful with all the blessings. I want to write a very serious blog post now, but I just can’t especially with the fact that I am surrounded by my fun-loving friends.
Anyway, I am here right now in Davao City – a place I consider special. I am a participant for the Davao Food Appreciation Tour (now on my 3rd consecutive year!) and I just arrived early morning today. While we were at the Agong House by Kublai Millan in Kapatagan this afternoon, I took some pictures and sat down while looking at the scenery. I remember my trips on the previous months – Ilocos Norte, Bangkok, Siem Reap, Chiang Mai, Bohol, Siquijor and South Korea. I met some wonderful people along my journey and learned a lot from it. There are some instances that reminds me of things ‘lacking’ in my life or shows some of the responsibilities I need to face in the future particularly in the family and career aspect.
Two years ago, I met a Camille Prats look-alike at the afterparty of Wordcamp PH 2008. A common friend introduced me to her and i originally thought she’s one of the representatives of Nuffnang Philippines, which was about to launch in the country. I later on found out that she is friends with a number of Malaysian bloggers that’s why she knows some details about Nuffnang.
To be honest, I was a bit intimidated when I first saw her. She’s young, pretty, works in an international bank, she can drive cars (and men like crazy LOL), she’s updated with the latest gadgets, she’s sporty and she can sing and dance. Who wouldn’t be intimidated with this charmer, eh?!
Today is September 1, 2009. This simply means that today is the start of the BER months! Our calendars will surely be filled with lots of activities for the upcoming Halloween and the Holidays. For me, the 1st of September is truly special because my loving mama turns 47 today!
I had the chance to call my mom earlier. She is now based in England together with my brother Carlo. My mom answered the phone gleefully as she originally thought that I’ll miss greeting her on her special day. I haven’t talked to her for a long time (five days to be exact teehee) and she panicked already.
