I've never been very good at playing alalay. I guess that is the reason why I always feel this queasy butterflies churning in my tummy whenever I get to be assigned as one. It gives me this feeling that any minute I will be put on the spot and I'd find myself with nothing short of an answer. Sigh, sigh. Guess I'll have to include that on my list of things to get used to.

After running some errands, I figured I needed some me time. So I didn't waste any time heading to JD Bakeshop. It's this local resto that I frequented during my college days. Those times when I barely had enough but was content and happy.
I ordered one of my faves - Chicken ala King. The serving wasn't so appealing but when I took the first bite, it brought back memories of the good ole days. You need that sometimes, so you won't forget the simple joys in life. Happy days!

I went out of the office for my doctor's appointment. She was supposed to be in by 12:30. Apparently, she started her consultation at around 2 and with 4 more patients before me, I wonder if I could make it back to the office by 4.
Some days, the odds are just not in your favor.

Watched a concert with friends last night.
We scored tickets to The Reo Brothers of Tacloban show sponsored by the Rotary Club of Iloilo South. I didn't know who they were or what the concert theme was so I pretty much had no expectations of how it's going to be.
Only when the show was about to start that I learned that it was about these 4 brothers who originated from Tacloban. They left home in the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda and tried their luck in Mega Manila. They sought the help of this talent managet who gave them his card in on of their gigs back home. With some make-over, packaging and branding, they transformed themselves into a band playing 60s and 70s music.
After long, they were already getting gigs in Manila and even abroad. And they've earned the privilege of being the first ever Pinoy band to play at the Legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool, the home of the Beatles.
As I listened to them, I felt like I was transported back to the 70s. The music was just electrifying. It had this great vibe into it that makes you want to groove and just sing along. People, old and young were dancing to the tune of The Beatles, the Beach Boys, Bee Gees, Elvis and all those other artists whose songs have been immortalized by lazy Sunday Rewind of songs of the past.
It was a great night of indulgence. And as I laid myself to sleep, I try to relive the moment and savor the experience. What a great way to end your day!

The Boz complained that his tooth was wiggling and it was making it difficult for him to chew on his food. Since he didn't want to go to the dentist, we dealt with it with a thread. Yep! Tied it with a thread and with the element of surprise, voila! The tooth has been set free. Problem solved!
