We first met when I started to work at SMPHI. She was ever bubbly and full of life. We instantly click. She’s just few years older than me but I fondly called her Tita Lai. We shared secrets and I thank her for covering me up with our boss during those days. She has been promoted several times during my stay with the company but that didn’t change her of how she treats us. I got her as Joshua’s ninang although they haven’t seen each other for quite some time now. I thank God for allowing me to be friend with such a wonderful person inside and out. And on her special day, I prayed that she would finally find the right man for her and that she would forever be happy.
Oh no! Someone is in trouble? Manila Bulletin that is. Their issue yesterday (August 6, 2009) showed a picture with caption WITH UTMOST CARE that had the biggest mistake of writing coffin of President Arroyo instead of President Aquino.
How will Malacañang react? Hmm…
I was wondering though, didn’t MB proof read before publishing the news? Also, as far as I remember in HS, our teacher told us that MB is usually pro administration when it comes to news. Now, will they still be like this?
As always, abangan ang susunod na kabanata…
Yesterday, the country has finally bid their last farewell to the queen we never had, the democracy icon, President Corazon Aquino. PGMA made the day a non-working holiday beforehand. And since the duty calls, I drag myself to work at 7am.
Thanks to ANC’s live streaming, we were able to watch the requiem mass in Manila Cathedral all the way to the funeral march to Manila Memorial Park. Past 3pm, nearing my shift’s end, the march was still not in Nichols Interchange. I live in Sucat so there’s no way I can go home but to wait until everything was done. Past 4pm, the march has just passed Nichols. I texted my husband that I won’t be able to come home yet. He volunteered to fetch me as the north bound lane is traffic free. Half past 5, he was already in SM Makati.
He had his merienda/dinner first and since I still feel full because of water overload (I’m on a diet, you know), I just watched him eat. Afterwards, we went window shopping both in SM and Glorietta. I was supposed to buy a flip-flops but the designs available in All Flip Flops are not too cute for me. The husband however was able to buy a Sandugo slipper.
Past 7pm, I received a text from a colleague that the march has not arrived yet in Sucat. So the husband insisted to watch a movie instead. I was not keen of seeing a movie lately but since I haven’t watched the latest Harry Potter(I know, I am so, so, so late about this), I obliged. The husband bought me Wendy’s salad for my dinner. What can I say about the story? Too bitin. Of course, I was like comparing the whole story again and the book itself. I heard, Book 7 will have 2 parts for the movie. I just hope it’ll give justice to the book – without cutting important scenes.
Anyways, to cut the long story short, we were home at 11pm. The little boy is already asleep and I was so dead tired that I immediately hit the sack right after I my nightly ritual.
It was one tiring day for me? Where were you yesterday?
After more than a year of battling colon cancer, our President Corazon Aquino passed away today. It was his only son, Senator Noynoy Aquino who announced her passing.
The official statement states: “Our mother peacefully passed away at 3:18 a.m. August 1, 2009 of cardio respiratory arrest. She would have wanted us to thank each and every one of you for all the prayers and your continued love and support. It was her wish for all of us to pray for one another and our country. Hinihiling po ng aming pamilya ang konting panahon para makasama namin ang aming mahal na ina."
