The holidays spent away from home. A first. To think I should be used to it by now – all these sudden traveling plans that ‘comes with the job’. But the short notice I received that I’ll be spending Christmas elsewhere, Down Under, without my folks and friends (and lechon)?…
But like with all the other firsts, I refuse to be defeated. They say Christmas and New Year’s is very different here in Oz. No fireworks, no noise allowed past midnight, strictly no drunk driving, that sort of thing. Most of all, its already summer here, in a 40C-max-12C-min bipolar kind of way. Tricky, but my suitcase, the weatherman, and I have found a way to all get along somehow.
Manila, I’m gonna miss out on all your crazy.
PS. Can you guess where this photo was taken?
