Ah, this humble blog survived its first year!

It is unfortunate, though, that I was not able to prepare a heavyweight blogpost for this very special day which happens to be my 31st birthday, too (my “last year in the calendar”, LOL!!!). It has been a very busy day because we timed it on the Christening of our two youngest children — Jesús Felipe (Jefe) and Juan Pablo Benedicto (Juanito). Aside from other friends, my brothers-in-arms Arnaldo Arnáiz and José Miguel García were the godfathers (Arnaldo for Jefe, and tocayo for Juanito). The solemn rite was held at Saint Peter the Apostle Church, just near our place.

With Jefe and Juanito's respective godparents. Taken this morning at the Saint Peter the Apostle Church in San Pedro, La Laguna. Behind us is the historic wooden Cross of Tunasán.

Reception followed at Uncle Inong Restaurant in nearby Ciudad de Muntinlupà. More friends arrived. At the restaurant, Arnaldo, JMG, and I got to discuss our favorite topic: Philippine History and related events over bottles of liquor and great food. We also discussed plans of launching our own website to promote our not-so-popular advocacy.

Anyway, I’m somewhere in Alabang right now, having a couple of bottles with old friends. I’ll catch up soon. 🙂

I’m mighty proud that FILIPINO eSCRIBBLES got this far. Happy 1st year anniversary! Thank you Lord God! And thank you to all the faithful readers! May the good Lord Almighty bless us all and give us more enlightenment!

Start spreading more mirth and love! =)

    Been reading your recent articles about Laguna which I thought to be highly urbanized area. Things on the high end and modern do not appeal much to us but sharing these towns and highlighting its rural charm inspires us to go there and discover ourselve the remaining heritage. Thank you for sharing.


    • ¡Muchas gracias, Glenn! I am very honored and humbled that the country’s top and most admired travel blogger greeted me (and this blog of mine). God bless you, my friend. =)
