In summary: simultaneous reading sessions on National Children's Book Day on Tuesday, the end of so many eras, and an awesome Saturday sports day under cut.
First off -- just a quick note here to say we pulled off 14 read-along sessions simultaneously on Tuesday to celebrate National Children's Book Day. The 14 are among the 41 sessions held in SM malls nationwide that day, plus 3 more in China. I mention this here because preps for this thing dominated my planner for the past month. Hah. Now that we have that over and done with -- YEY.
Speaking of things over and done with -- and so we close a ten-year tradition with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (a.k.a. HP7.2), which I finally watched on Wednesday -- and what more fitting way to do this than with the girls with whom I have watched the previous movies since 2001. (SINCE 2001 GUYS. I FEEL OLD.)
|LOL -- watched on Wednesday with Cy, Ice and Drea. Inset: Almi, who wasn't able to join us for that night, but who's also been a part of this experience SINCE 2001 YO. Sabi niya i-photoshop ko raw siya eh. DONE! (Thanks love for taking this photo!)|
Still on the subject of eras ending - marked Eliza's departure from the section with a simple despedida. Thank you dear, see you around soon. :)

Anyway, the Azkals lost to Kuwait, 3-0, but man the Philippine NT's effort was nothing short of MASSIVE. Bravo guys! Let's show 'em on the 28th!
In all -- a good week. Right now we're looking at the President's State of the Nation Address, and some requisite workplace rearrangements. Exciting times up ahead indeed.
