[December 2007]

During the Christmas season, the entire city of Manila gets illuminated and all the shopping malls get packed with people. It's one of the rare occations in this tropical country where you can actually feel the "season."

For us expats, it is also the season for good-byes. Many of our friends, with whom I traveled together, partied together, and talked about so many things in our lives together, have gone home - promising that we'd meet again sometime, somewhere. Sad reality, but I hope next year will be as nice and as fun with some new people in town. Another year in the Philippines is gone, and I'm heading back to Tokyo for holidays.
