Before 2009 Ended, Friends (Re)United and Wincy is the New Mong

2:31 am, 1st of January 2010. Happy new year and thanks for being a part of my 2009!

Generally, 2009 has been good to me. My career and personal life is doing well and so far I haven’t encountered any big problems yet. Hopefully this will be a refreshing start in my career.


Days before 2009 year ended, I was fortunate to have spent it with my different sets of friends. First is the wedding of my blogger friends, Jay De Jesus and Aileen Apollo-De Jesus last 26th December. This is the official merging of Google Philippines and ๐Ÿ˜€ (not in the business sense, ok? hehe). Congratulations to the both of you and may you have beautiful children! Although your bridal car did not arrive on your wedding day, what’s important is that you were able to say your “I do’s”. Sue them afterwards so that they’ll have a dose of their bitter medicine. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Secondly, I was with my High School friends from St. Scho Manila last 29th December. It was a special dinner because some of them were living overseas for a long time and just came home for the holidays. I think this is the biggest attendance in a dinner since we graduated. We had dinner at Fish Out of Water in Greenbelt 5. Our night was filled with never ending laughter. Didn’t really need to flashback as what other friends do. We talked about our present lives and some about the future.

After our dinner, we decided to drop by Saguijo. I realized that this was my last gig for 2009. It’s been weeks since I was in Saguijo. Haven’t been there since the owners of Breadbox (the posh carinderia opposite Saguijo) were murdered. It felt so different and I was used to see a bright light glowing from Breadbox whenever I stand outside the gate of Saguijo. Hope that the culprit(s) will be captured. We have seen lots of deaths in the news as the end of the year approached. Oh please, 2010, please be kind to us.

“Mikey is the New Mong”

“Anghel” by Stonefree

Back to Saguijo, the gig started early (which I wasn’t used to) so we just saw Stonefree and Us-2-Evil-0. Gig ended at around 1:30 am. I enjoyed Us-2-Evil-0’s set. They just made a new twist of “Mikey is the New Mong” by making it “Wincy is the New Mong”. Can’t help but laugh at them while Quark and Mich were mocking Wincy. He’s still cool about it even though he forgot to plug his guitar into the amp during the last song. ๐Ÿ˜€
