I hope all priests are worthy of our respect and trust. Imagine kung merong maniakis na pari tapos nag-mano pa ako sa kanya, hinawakan ko pa kamay nya, nay ko, ang sarap hampasin ng palaspas ang pagmumukha. I may sound disrespectful but It makes my blood boil whenever I hear of priests who molest boys and / or girls.

March 25, Sunday morning, father and daughter flew to Bangkok for the launching of Ford’s pick-up truck and to get a glimpse of the Bangkok Motor Show. They asked me to join them but I declined because Holy Week is more important to me. Although they were back on Holy Tuesday, I had many things to do in preparation for my yearly panata in Binangonan.

Apparently the business class seats from Manila to Bangkok were overbooked. PAL offered my daughter to seat in the economy section in exchange for a round trip business class tickets to Bangkok or equivalent destination. She agreed. On her flight back to Manila on March 27 she used her original business class ticket. She now holds a round trip ticket to any Asian country (HK, Singapore, Bangkok, Malaysia, Macau, Indonesia) on business class.

The white towels were delivered to Ford Cainta by the printer.
There were some printing rejects. Can’t be avoided due to the time limitation and the volume.

Tuesday afternoon,

Twenty pieces of green t-shirts were delivered to Ford Cainta. I will give this to the guys who would help push St. John the Evangelist’s carossa. 10 for Myerkoles Santo and ten for Byernes Santo.

I cooked pasta for my daughter. She and Edmund were arriving from Bangkok and I wanted to have some ready meal in case she comes home hungry.

I cook with no recipe. Puro imbento lang. Uwido.

We haven’t bought a new oven so I just microwaved it to melt the mozzarella cheese on top and to cook the sliced bell peppers.

It’s been a year at least that the second floor guest room hasn’t been used. It has no more television because I donated it to a church.

I hurriedly went to Anson’s infront of Podium to buy a tv. My sister likes to watch teleserye so I wanted to make sure the room is ready for her viewing pleasure.

I don’t like to buy in installment kasi look at the price difference. Sayang ang pera.

They gave me additional discount.

Our whole house needs major renovation including this guest room. The maids just taped the wall papers with masking tape to keep them from dangling.
