it's already December... two months after my 'special' month...
yep... october's my month... and yet, my October 2006 slot for 'Speak Up' is E-M-P-T-Y... same goes for my November 2006 slot... grrr...
the past 2 months weren't so eventful... but a few bits and pieces happened... worth mentioning... including good bud rinah's life as it got spiced up a bit... m always part of my friends' lives! bwahahaha!

so anyway, here's a walk-through of my October ~ December 2006:

1. birthday dinner with the fam at 7 Corners, Crowne Plaza (Galleria, Manila)...

  • food was ok... but not as varied as i had hoped
  • the room was too dark -- works in the morning for breakfast but not for dinner...
  • loved the butter corn loaf! mmm...

celebrated being FILIPINO in the International Community... mucho fun! mucho food! yum!

3. Clark has failed me once again...
...this time it's Air Asia...
~ re-booked...

i think that i'm a jinx... to this airport.

3. Rinah's Life-Changing Moment
spent a whole week with Rinah... phonecalls, text messages, a sleepover and even a Sta. Elena getaway...

too long of a story to elaborate... but Rinah, we're here for you... and you're such a strong person that you'll definitely get through this dillemma. this experience is something that you've learned from... learned a lot about other people, about relationships, and of course, yourself...
matatapos din yan! malapit na! with this 'new' thing going on in your career, everything will be looking up sooner THAN later! Congratulations on your new job! Unilever seems like a good fit for you :) can't wait till January

4. Good friend Archie left for Madrid, Spain once again for work... but of course, it won't be all work for this guy! Travelling from one Europe spot to the next, we're all left as inggit fwends... had a chance to spend some time with him before he left... hmm... he actually should be back home now! coz he's supposed to be here for Christmas... are you home naaa? hehehe!

5. New Office Furniture!

6. Finally had the chance to dindin with good bud Vivien... juz a simple dinner at the Block :: Aristocrat and some UCC for dessert! yum!

it was a good chance to catch up and chismis about each others' lives... she's really one friend i trust and value... she's proven to be a treasure...
