road trip

11 of us from our department went on leave and on a road trip last Friday afternoon to Maleen's house (dislocated knee-cap girl, remember) in Balayan, Batangas. Traffic on South Superhighway slowed us down but we were able to make the 120 or so kilometers to Balayan in about four hours, including stopovers.

It was really nice to see Maleen after a week; also was nice to be out in the sun in the "country". I'm looking forward to Joel's birthday celebration in Sta. Rosa, Laguna (about 80km from Makati) coming up soon. These day trips seem to be good for the soul somewhat--away from the hustle and bustle of life among the skyscrapers...

Shots from around. Poor me, I only get out of the city on really rare occasions.

Nice old house on the corner of Maleen's street.

Group pic! The IT peeps. Maleen is in the blue housedress with a cane.

Now if only traffic wasn't that bad...
