I’m thankful for this year, despite the storms, the world’s tragedies, the bone-weariness caused by city living.
Let me share some photos I forgot to post here.
On Nov. 22, we attended the Philippine Speculative Fiction Vol. 9 Launch Party and the National Book Awards.
The PSF launch was held at Shangri-La CBTL, hosted by Dean Francis Alfar. Here’s J pretending to be someone else.
Flashback! An hour before that we bumped into fellow writers, beauties Elyss and Tin, and sat down for lunch at Duck & Buvette.
I really loved their food.
So right after the launch we had to run to the Marble Hall of the National Museum for the National Book Awards.
With Ricky de Ungria, Poetry Award Winner for his book, M’Mwry Wire.
My book on display.
While I was in Batanes, J won a Netrunner Tourney!
And here I am with people from work, enjoying our Christmas dinner.
