A Good Day

Last Saturday, Jerry flew to Manila to attend the Gulf Distributorsâ?? Meeting at the Holiday Inn Clark, Pampanga. While he wowed his counterparts from all over with his no-nonsense presentation (aw, he didnâ??t have to but he thanked me for teaching him a few tricks on powerpoint), I was back home enjoying my time with the kids. Thankfully, Matt and Kyle have recovered from last Fridayâ??s bout with vomiting, nausea, diarrhea and mild fever. I felt it was okay for us sans Jerry to join my in-laws for my sis-in-lawâ??s birthday dinner at Mayi (City Sports Club).

Since we were informed in advance of the formal restoâ??s dress code, we were all decent in polo shirts, long pants and shoes. Even young Jake conformedâ?¦

Matt & Kyle looked good while Jake looked, er, funny...

Earlier today, after bringing the kids to school, attending the 7am mass and saying my rosary and novena, I drove to the airport for Jerryâ??s arrival. Since the last time I went, there were already a few changes to the airport premises particularly the arrival area. Enough reason for me to miss the new entry point, to overshoot and to drive for a few hundred meters more.

On my way back, I saw from my side mirror a familiar blue Altis speeding behind and towards my rear. My suspicion was correct. It turned out to be Edâ??s (pls refer to Oct 21 entry in the archives) and he was like a mad driver trying to overtake me from the right lane. Heck, no wonder he gets into car mishaps every few weeksâ?¦ Crazyâ?¦

Let me not deviate and go back to the changes in the airport. I was pleasantly surprised that they now allow waiting cars to park inside the arrival area - a very good improvement indeed. Well, there goes the revenue of pay parking areas (in the airport's periphery) that charge exorbitant fees for 10-15 minutes of parking time.

So there I was enjoying the free parking as I waited for Jerry to come out. I stayed inside the car, opened my door, looked up to the clear blue sky and turned up the summer (reggae) music I was listening toâ?¦ Ah forget about that crazy driver earlier, Jerry's back and I just knew it was going to be another good day.
