Road trip to Tagaytay

After Baby Ysa’s christening, some of us decided to go on a road trip to Tagaytay. We used Innover (Anne’s new Innova car) and Anne was the driver. Pey was teasing her how it felt so good to be simply a passenger (Pey, with Reboy, was usually our best friend-driver before). We had dinner at View Point, I shouldered a chunk of the bill as a treat to them due to my promotion. After that, we went to Starbucks for coffee. It was tiring but it was well worth it because we were able to have some fun and share laughter.

Baby Ysa’s Christening

Baby Ysa, Weng and Fides’ baby girl was baptized last Jan. 21, 2007 at the Hearts of Jesus and Mary (the very same church where they got married). The reception was at Shangri-La Finest Cuisine. It was another time where officemates and ex-officemates were able to bond. Anne and I were late for the ceremony because I woke up very late. Blame it on the issue at work last Friday which forced me to stay until 5 am of Saturday. :p

ICOF babies

Jo finally gave birth to healthy baby Samantha Jeanne last Jan 14, 2007 at 11:21AM. We visited them at the hospital but we were not able to see Baby Sam because it’s not yet the visiting hours. I only got to see her when we visited them in their home a week after. Well she’s another addition to the IS babies. Prior to that, Fides also gave birth to Baby Sofia Ysabel last Dec. 9, 2006. Liezl (Joey’s wife) is also due next month. Oh well, welcome to the world babies!

Holiday Break

Finally the long wait is over. I am on my way home now and my 12 days break has officially started. Yep, I took a leave for the remaining working days next week and the first two days of next year. I broke my personal rule of not being absent on the first working day of the New Year. I guess this is the first time but I’m not guilty coz I know I deserve this break. Anyway, enough of that.Below is list of what’s in store for this break. I hope I can accomplish most, if not all.

  • Shop for Christmas gifts for nieces and nephew.
  • Have medical and dental check up. My back is bothering me for a week now. I thought it was because of my hectic schedule during the past two weeks but the two days SL did not quite help. I still feel it until now. Also, my wisdom tooth is not growing smoothly. I think some gums have to be removed.
  • Read books. I have so many backlogs already.
  • Scout for banks to transfer Baguio ATM. BDO has increased its maintaining balance to 5k. I think that’s too much.
  • Prepare 2007 budget and master plan
  • Bond with family
  • Meet with friends
  • Take pictures
  • Write some more
  • Apply for SSS ID
  • Go to NBI for clearance
  • Watch TV
  • Sleep
  • Visit bell church
  • Document text messages
  • Look for school works for e-compilation

It’s a long list but I’ll try to accomplish most of it.

By the way, I guess it’s already official. I am promoted to SSE. I am only waiting for the promotion papers. I’ll write more of this soon.
We are now in EDSA and it’s pretty much the opposite of what I have expected. No traffic yippee! Maybe because it’s already almost 3 AM. But I think there are also lesser people now going home to their provinces as compared to previous years. Anyway, I am just glad to be going home. My beloved Baguio here I come. 🙂
