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
Francis, our former officemate, and who is now based in Singapore, is here for a visit. He arrived last January 13 and will be staying for two weeks. We already had dinner last January 17. We will be having dinner again today as a farewell for him. He lost some weight because he doesn’t enjoy the food in Singapore. Wawa. He is ok at work though. He said it’s much easier daw as to what we are doing in Sykes.
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.
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!
Today, Eden and I will be attending a training on Requirements Analysis given by Processworks. It will be a two-day training, from Jan. 25-26, 2007. Our trainor is Peter (he was also our trainer on Usability Testing last year). I hope to learn some new things that I can apply at work.
