This month has been so cuh-razy busy, I didn’t even notice the days slipping by until whoa—it’s only three days ’til Christmas! Boring schoolwork aside, let me show you what’s been up lately.
I went to Intramuros…
with my friends to get something for our Labor Relations class. While there, we stopped by the National Commission on Culture and the Arts, where an exhibit was being held. The exhibit, featuring works by Aba Lluch Dalena, Nana Buxani, and Susan B. Corpuz, has a theme of love transcending age and gender.
Over the weekend, we paid a visit to our relatives’ graves, something we haven’t done in a while. Walking among the headstones hand-in-hand with my four-year-old cousin, I remembered a funny story about the cemetery.
When I was little, to explain my father’s absence, my mom told me that my dad was dead. He wasn’t—they were just separated. But Mom thought this was too complicated an explanation for a toddler, so she went with “Your dad’s dead.”
Last weekend, Mama, Lola, and I took the three-hour trip to Tagaytay to beat the unbearable Manila heat.
Or not. If you think that Tagaytay is a place to escape the scorching heat we’ve been having recently, you’re only half-right. It’s not as cool as I’d have liked, but at least even in direct sunlight you won’t break into a sweat.
We stayed at 5R. It was relatively inexpensive at PHP1800 for a night.
(This photo-heavy post about my recent summer activities is brought to you by my ever-diminishing attention span.)
March 24: BES Ball
We attended this formal year-end event organized by UST’s Behavioral Science Society. It’s fun to be girly and kikay every once in a while, especially since my definition of “dressed up” is “wearing something other than shorts, a shirt, and sneakers”.
March 28: Dylan’s high school graduation
My younger cousin Dylan just graduated from high school and we celebrated with a dinner at Cafe Lidia, my favorite restaurant in Marikina.
