Hello everyone! I’m back.
To those who have asked (you know who you are) why I’m so “quiet” (i.e. not blogging, my preceding two posts were scheduled ones, not plurking and twittering), what am I doing, and other questions directed to trying to figure out where and how I am, I really appreciate it.
Just like the hint that I left, I did a whirlwind trip to Philippines. I was supposed to be there for full eight days (travel time excluded), but it was extended by 24 hours by a fortuitous event. Probably you know which one.
My vacation was too short but each minute was well-spent. Did you know that no one knew that I was coming home? Although I was itching to break the news to my family, relatives and friends*, I wanted to keep it as a secret to know how effective I am in executing surprises (Lol). So, you can just imagine my dear ones’ reactions when they saw me standing at the gate.
On the last day of my vacation, typhoon Ondoy came. Its effects surprised me/us a lot. It did beat my trying to surprise people for coming home unannounced. I experienced the worst flood going to the airport, had the hardest time rebooking my flight, etc. I thought that day was not going to end.
Anyway, I’m back, alive and kicking… still sleepy though. I reached Abu Dhabi airport at 6:00 AM and reported for work which I had to absent myself yesterday.
Stories to follow. Once I get recharged.
I hope everyone’s well.
*I generally didn’t meet up with any friends to be fair with each one. Until this minute, they didn’t know I’ve been to the Philippines. Except for a friend whose daughter is my godchild, I missed her christening last time.

Yes. I but I didn’t have the chance to ride the MRT/LRT.
Glad you’re back at home safe and sound. I’ve been watching the updates to Ondoy. Thankfully my friends and family are safe, but there’s so much destruction 😦

Hello everyone. It was a last minute decision to go home as I can’t take a vacation this December. I took advantage of the EID/holidays to go for a whirlwind trip. I intentionally didn’t meet up with friends, including bloggers, due to limited time. Cause if I will do with one, baka may magtampo. Next time, we will see each other. =)
