Through the Rabbit Hole Into Wonderland at the Foot of Pundaquit
I decided to spend a week in Manila right after arriving from the United States, not just to fulfill some last obligations for the U.S. Embassy but also to visit some friends, and to prepare myself for the eventual arrival home in Dumaguete City. The essayists Rica Bolipata-Santos decided to take me, along with writers Francesca Kwe-Lacaba and Kris Lanot Lacaba, for a weekend in Casa San Miguel in Zambales, at the foot of Mt. Pundaquit.

Spending a lazy weekend with friends and writing can be a beautiful thing. One truly needs this once in a while.
