New Year in the Philippines
The view of the Metro Manila skyline from Monterey Hills in San Mateo, Rizal.
And this is what I miss most about the Philippines, lots and lots of fireworks!
This was our first and last time dining in here. It burned down a few months ago as well as other establishments in the downtown area. I’m not sure if they’re up and running again. But if they are, you better try their Veggie Quesadillas! Loved it!

“So, what happens when he stops coming home for dinner, and everything is already set up. Then what?”
”What else is there? I could get used to this,” A secondary pause, and a sigh. “I suppose. But he still will make it home, won’t he? He will. He has to.” Her answer ending in a near whisper as she looks down playing with the button of her slightly undone top. Genuine conversations required eye contact, she knew this for a fact. But this time, she couldn’t bare herself to look at him. Her eyes, they always gave her away, and this was something she would rather keep to herself.
”Does it sadden you?”
”But of course it makes me sad,” A chuckle and a half-smile, still no eye-contact. “But when he eventually does come home, that sadness crumbles into little pieces, tiny, tiny pieces, and they float away until they disappear.” She continued, “That’s what it’s like with him.” She looks up at him, her eyes glimmering with tears and he doesn’t even flinch.
”You love him?”
”And this scares you?”
He doesn’t respond, as if waiting for her to continue.
”There is nothing scarier than love itself.”
”Because it’s fleeting, no matter what.”
”But sometimes it comes back.”
”And sometimes it’s half past midnight, and well, nothing.”
