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.
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! =)
