Wow! We may get a lot of hits with this title..... Men in Black, Men in Uniform, and now.... Men in Manila!!!
For the information of everyone, Men is singular, proper noun referring to our dear friend Myrna! Yes, Men has been here in the Philippines since November 17 for a well deserved vacation after the loss of a loved one. She's going back to the US tomorrow.
We had lunch with her last Saturday at Gerry's Grill in Greenhills. The venue was very convenient for Men who's condo is just walking distance away. But traffic was horrible that day. Alot, Marynat, and Men were already in the place when I arrived at around 12 noon. Bert and Marie arrived almost 2 pm. We thought they'd give up and turn away from the EDSA traffic. Kaso, sabi ni Men, "Okay lang kung ma-trafic, wala kaming tiyagang maghintay...... Hanggang 6 pm. lang kami dito". O di, lagot. Kawawa iyong beauty ni Marie na pinapag-drive na naman ni Bert (expired daw kasi ang driver's license niya. Galing ng palusot!)
Men stayed longer in Daet than in Manila. The Daet group was able to organize a get-together with her (Men will post the pictures of the gathering when she goes back to the US). She was also in Daet during the non-stop three-day rains that resulted to the unprecedented floods in the province.
She's been to Thailand, too, before coming to Manila. That was before the closure of the two airports during the recent political turmoil in that country. She's leaving tomorrow to be reunited with her children and they'll spend the holidays in Hawaii. After this, we're sure Men would have already fully recovered and would be raring to move on. Wish you all the best Men.
By the way, the lunch turned out to be Ate Marynat's treat for her birthday, which is on Dec. 25. Thanks Ate Marynat! The plan to hold a post-Christmas party is still on. Date and venue will be finalized when Rudy and Ineng arrive on Dec. 20 (or about that date). It's still pot-luck. Marynat will bring Menudo ('80s na 80s).
And now for the pictures...... Ma-reklamo ku-ta ako sa picture na ku-a ni Marie. Garo mag-ama an luwas! Sa picture lang iyan, sa tunay bako man!
