Whew, I’ve been waiting to make this post. Last September 1-8 I was in Manila (just like last year) to attend an IT congress called Y4iT. Rubi (Candy) met me at SM North Edsa and from there she accompanied us to the boarding house she negotiated with for our lodging. At around 11:00, the two of us had to go out to fetch one of my companions. We waited at McDonald’s in PHILCOA where she forcefully made me buy her something.
On day 3 Joey brought me to Makati where we met Kenneth and walked the expensive hallways of Glorieta and Greenbelt. Joey really pushed me to look at the things which I will never be able to buy. In other words, mga butang nga dili daw nako mapalit! Gamay ra jud ang ga-shopping didto kay pang-sosyal, lahi ra jud ang blending.
For more pictures, check out Joey’s Multiply. On my last two days I had dinner with Alex (x2) and Joey, Rubi, and Kamille. They literally emptied my pocket on the last one where Suay mercilessly took even my 50 cents away!
While aboard the ship going back to Iloilo, Joey texted me that he’ll be appearing in GMA’s 24 Oras news. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to propagate the news to the others due to limited load and fluctuating signal. I saw the news. It was about him and his groupmates winning a contest back in Indonesia. It was a poster-making event where they were to inform ordinary people some deep facts about Science. The price? A whooping ~15,000 pesos.
I haven’t posted a formal site update since the new layout so for the sake of information, site was relaunched last August 7. I have already fixed all the pages but if you still find quirks please report immediately. The gallery section is still under construction. I’ve decided to completely separate it from here (but will still be accessible from here).
