Dubai Chronicles: The Mystery and End of Bacolod
This is not a doomsday post but as we know, all some good things last while newer things and friendships blossom in their stead. All things work for good to those who love God and are called according to Purpose. If we miss out on the simple things in life, it would be a waste to leave without experiencing the Joy of a friend and a reunion.
The Making it through Lacson Street
Susan:”As we sat our butts in the airport nibbling on our Piaya, I just wonder how in the world I bought all these pasalubongs: a truck full! One for friends in Pangasinan, some for Family and Relatives, I even bought for my friends in Dubai.
Ian: “And I have to carry some of the Luggage. Women are excellent shoppers.”
Myrna:“Not really. We just buy many small stuff but men spend a lot on a single gadget. Anyway, it was great to have you around here, Ian. Taking us around and being funny gave us a great time.”
Susan: “If any of you people haven’t visit to Bacolod, it’s one place you will not forget. Sa mga friends, jan, sarap ng pagkain dito, muntik na ko nagdala ng marinated chicken, ihawin ko pag uwi. This is one Vacation I will not forget.”
