I feel quite compelled to explain my absence, especially when I just started posting more regularly than before. Mostly, I’ve been quite busy commuting from Manila, Philippines to New Jersey, USA.
With a trip that was 10 years in the making, August 21, 2014 marks as Le Beau’s first time picking me up at the airport purposely. I’m quite thankful for my mom and my boss for helping me afford the long time off in time for Le Beau’s birthday. I’m ecstatic how things have fallen in place.
It is quite annoying that Delta forgot to load my luggage along with others in the DTW-JFK leg. But who am I to complain? The string of good and blessed fortune just keeps coming; I can only be humbled by it.
I didn’t really announce to most people that I am going on this trip. In the process, I missed at least two grad school parties, a get-together with my management trainee batchmates, and a handful of end of season sales in the Philippines, when I usually shop for holiday gifts.
Not to brag or anything, but it’s pretty much worth it.
Whilst I continue to battle jet lag and the ceaseless energy my nephews and nieces have, I will do my best to update the blog and not bombard it with the cheese that is ever present throughout my stay.
A good friend said I am in cloud nine. In my opinion, clouds are an understatement.
