My last two weeks in the Philippines were hectic! Only one friend came from Cebu instead of the planned three, but we filled up the days since she arrived with activities which included visiting The Ruins (finally!), swimming in Pacific Shores (hehe don’t be confused, it’s just the name of the subdivision resort in our home city), and an outing in Mambukal Falls.


At The Ruins with Mai and Michelle from Cebu…

When we got to Manila, we also met some more family friends whom we haven’t seen for a decade or maybe less. Our time was very limited, and theirs too, so we really didn’t get to talk much about their lives. Fortunately I still have some souvenirs left which I was able to give them. No more chocolates though!Not that they really care, coz I know they would appreciate even personalized gifts. What matters is the thought anyway. I was just happy to see them even for such a short time.
