Even towering centuries-old acacias did not escape the wrath of typhoon Glenda. Townsfolk took advantage of these fallen trees that lined up the old wall of the church. Sad when I saw the old trees. 21 August 2014 (at St. John the Baptist Parish Church Camalig Albay)

They are so happy to play near the goat - and have their photo taken! Two things: I used to play here when I was a kid, but I never wanted a photo with a goat! Hahaha! 21 August 2014 (at St. John the Baptist Parish)

This is Mama Feling’s house, the ancestral home of my dad. Now the abode of my aunt, Nene, this house still has a lot of childhood memories, including artifacts that remind me of my roots. This road, Grageda Street, is named after my ancestors. Yes, I share many of their eccentricities. :D Camalig, Albay. 21 August 2014 (at Municipal Hall Camalig Albay)

I spent some time reading Kazuo Ishiguro’s “Nocturnes” - a book I borrowed from Fr. Jett Villarin SJ. It has five short stories woven around musicians or music-lovers. The stories are subtly lovely, worth reading especially with a cup of tea before you hit the sack.  This time I’m with my siblings at a quiet café. 19 August 2014 (at La Mia Tazza)
