it's a date!

i am soooo looking forward to joining inimitable carlos celdran on his north bank tour (walking tour of escolta and quiapo, and the north side of pasig river) on september 2, saturday! this will be my first guided tour in manila since i considered it my home almost 4 years ago.

this will be a welcome respite to my typically mundane, boring, and unexciting life particularly during the weekend (except for the 4pm-7pm slot - that's a happenin' slot). otherwise...boohoo, really. pitiful. i tell you, send me those drinks.

but, what makes this tour even more special is that i will be meeting gracious "host" señor eric, who is, of course, one of the best bloggers we have around here. to say that i am excited is an understatement. i am actually nervous! i hope he doesn't bite. on the other hand, i'm sure he wouldn't be able to bite...what with the butterscotch munching all throughout the tour, di ba señor! *nudge, nudge, wink, wink*

now please, puhleeeease...don't rain on my parade.

One of the best? Whoa! hahaha!

Vina, I ought to hire you, if I could afford it, as my

Publicity Director ... hehehe!

Anyway, really looking forward to this tour, and as I told

you, my nephew who hasn't experienced a Manila guided tour

before is coming along with us.

Sidney Snoeck I will be meeting for the first time as well

this Saturday for Ivan's Big Wok Binondo tour. He and I will

discuss a project (see his comment on my site):


And if you're really bored with life, maybe you can join and

help us on this photo project of Malate :)

Ok, I'll call Carlos and reserve the 3 spots for us for

September 2 :)

And don't forget to bring the "Bacolod-you-know-what!" hehehe!

That sounds cool, Vina. And I agree that the Senor is one of the best bloggers around. Pati tuloy ako excited sa meeting nyo and also with Sidney. Maybe you could sneak a shot of those 2 photo-shy bloggers. :)
