Tito Jun's Retirement and 65th Birthday

I guess at 65, it's safe to look back and view your life as a slideshow and take stock of your accomplishments. Quite an anxious spectre specially when you have other people do that for you. Such is not the case with Tito Jun... a person so well loved and respected by his friends and family. His family put up a surprise party for him with close friends and dear family members as guests. Heart-warming testimonials complete with projected slide shows and video clips underscored the accomplishment of a man whose greatest asset (for me) is the love, devotion and dedication his family continues to bestow on him. If wealth is measured along those lines, he wouldn't have to work for a living. I feel privileged to have made the list.

Makes me ponder...how would my kids and friends regard me when I'm 65? Will I be as fortunate as Tito Jun? The task ahead is daunting.

Philippine Celebration

Next stop was Harbourfront to partake in the celebration of the Philippines. Having just arrived from the Philippines, I felt involved with the whole scene. It was a fun experience with my daughter posing with Miss Philippines 2002, singers in Barong Tagalog and Terno serenading the people with classic kundiman songs and audiovisual presentation of the Philippines' rich natural resources - the coral reefs, the beaches, the warmth and hospitality of the people, etc.

Tambay at Danny's

My coming back won't be complete without getting together with my kumpareng Danny for a few rounds of brewed goodies. A culinary enthusiast himself, I was treated to Korean calbi, Bicol Express with Salmon and Mung beans. The better part is with Danny, you get down-to-earth comfort with someone who lays it like it is. When you just wanna hang without the worry of putting up an effect, a few drinks with Danny fills the bill.
