We had breakfast then went on our different lakaran. Tal and I went to Camp John Hay. we visited The Manor and went window shopping at Mile Hi. We had lunch at my favorite resto, Cafe By The Ruins and what a dream come true for me! I love the place! Very cozy and the food is GREAT! After lunch we went to SM. Then we had dinner @ Gecko with Bruce and Eya. The Spicy BBQ Chicken is to die for! Ang SARAP! We had a long, slow walk in Session Road. Talento loved Session Road so much. we also visited UP baguio and the very dark Sunshine Park. We went there in the evening kasi.hehehe. Then Bruce and Eya decided to go home while Tal and I continued with our stroll. He wanted to go to Volante but I wanted to go to Rumours, the best bar for me. Small world talaga! Tal met Vincent, a fellow UPLBian helping out in Rumours. I had the strongest margarita in that bar and it was my first time to drink Cervesa Negra. It was okay! Better than San Mig Lite..hehehe! I enjoyed the night with Talento @ Rumours. We talked, laughed and shared lots and lots of past secrets. I was in heaven that night. Thanks Talento. Thanks Baguio!

I get inspired whenever young women speak their minds. For me, it is a sign of courage and hope when they share one of their secrets to you.
In the book Picture The Girl, one of the teenagers shared how she was assaulted by someone she dated and that it took her a long time to deal with it.
One even opened up that she is a dyke(lesbian) and that it is a little difficult for her to announce it to her family. It even took her years to step out in her closet.
Reading their stories helped me open my mind in understanding my students more. I must accept the fact that their generation is different from mine and that as time passes, people, places, attitudes, feelings and ideas also change.

Although I am happily married, I still miss my family in Mapayapa. I miss my dad who passed away 7 years ago. I miss his Ilocano way of cooking pinakbet and caldereta. I miss my mom and her stories about us when we were still babies. I miss my two ates. I miss teasing them, kissing them and being simply malambing to them. I guess the best remedy for this little problem of mine is to keep myself super busy everyday and just try to visit them weekly. There, problem solved! Now I’m gonna give myself a pat on the shoulder.
