Down Under: Chaia’s Send-Off Gathering, Shakey’s Rada Makati Branch, 26 March 2008

Just can’t resist joining Chai’s despedida. I came in late. I missed though some of the Happy Feet regulars who had to leave early. I missed Banggigay’s “maga” session too! Whatever that means, I’m sure there’ll be another “maga” story time. For more photos click on the link: http:http://www.flickr.com/photos/banggigay/sets/72157604278007138/

Performances

August 2007 opened another opportunity to explore other possibilities. Never realized that I would someday be in another chorale group. A month before I joined my new employer, I sang a song entitled, “Someone Like You,” from Jekyll and Hyde accompanied by Ateneo Chamber Singers during the wedding of Ruth (now a Happy Feet member).Continue reading “Performances”

Go Marino, Go! A FAME Fun Run, September 23, 2007

Aargh! This is the second time around that I didn’t do well in my run. Instead of improving it, it’s getting worse instead. The culprit? Not getting enough sleep the night before–too excited to know what’s going to happen and anxious at the same time whether I can finish the race or not. I endContinue reading “Go Marino, Go!

Fil-Mus Run for Peace, September 9

A 10-K fun run for peace along Roxas Blvd., Ermita, Manila, to welcome the holy month of Ramadan, when Islam believers abstain from food, drink, smoking, and sex from dawn to dusk. Even before the race started, I already told Judah, a fellow runner, that I was not feeling well and even showed him myContinue reading “Fil-Mus Run for Peace, September 9”

Trail Run, September 2

Went out of the house at past 5 AM. It was a bit cloudy. Waited for Ben to pick me up near RCBC along Ayala Avenue. Ben asked me to wait for another extra minutes. To kill time, I went to a nearby Starbucks and bought myself a glass of milk and a slice ofContinue reading “Trail Run, September 2”

The UP Great "PICNIC" Run, August 26

Woke up at 3:30 AM today excited how the race will end and looking forward to the first ever picnic of Happy Feet. Excitement is in the air. Look at the deluge of e-mails pouring in day by day at our impromptu_runners e-group… it speaks volumes. Everyone is willing to bring whatever they think canContinue reading “The UP Great "PICNIC" Run, August 26”

Barbizon Mommy Milkshake Marathon, 4 August

Woke up feeling so tired today for not sleeping early the night before and wondering whether to join the milkshake run or not. I had to drag myself down to text Ben for a ride to the Fort. I had to do it quickly because I was only given 30 minutes to prepare and beContinue reading “Barbizon Mommy Milkshake Marathon, 4 August”

Victory Lap, July 15

A 5k fun run dubbed as 911: Marathon for Life sponsored by e-PLDT Ortigas Branch, part of their Give-a-Life-Program. While waiting for the race to start, one experienced runner said to me, “You will win this race.” Of course, I was apprehensive. My focus zeroed in only on finishing the race. That’s it! A supposedContinue reading “Victory Lap, July 15”
