This is the week of the long weekend in the Philippines. How I wish we were on a long weekend, too. It was a quiet uneventful week. I needed that.
It was a sad week for the Philippines. The Interior and Local Government Secretary was in a plane crash and was found dead together with the two pilots. Only his aide survived the crash. I was surprisingly affected and emotional. I do not even know them at all. I guess I feel the pain of losing your love one. My heart and prayers go out to their families.
And so here is how my week went --
|Day 15 - Ready|
Penne is ready for its sauce. Cooked Penne Rosa with Shrimp that night.
|Day 16 - Food |
I seriously cannot cook pork chops the right way. I burn the outside too fast while the inside of the meat remains raw.
|Day 17 - Faces|
The faces at the mooncakes from Starbucks. I recently blogged about these mooncakes.
|Day 18 - Inside|
My toddler strikes again. Here was a failed attempt to put Woody inside the speaker. Thankfully, he was unsuccessful this time. Jed and I would have to "appear" furious again when it really was so funny.
|Day 19 - Hole|
This is our peep hole. Because of the strict security implemented by our building, we hardly have to use this.
|Day 20 - Today|
August 20 is the day I'd receive an unexpected package. Gotta love the feeling of being surprised.
|Day 21 - Cool|
I have this magnificent view of the Bangkok skyline from our place. Now, how cool is that!?!
The upcoming week is going to be busy. I have three sets of visitors. This is what happens when it's a long weekend in the Philippines. Would be good to reconnect to people back home.
