gratitude for 2014

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.
