I am back home now.

Finally, I am home now. I was away from my online world in a week because I have to accompany my nephew in Manila for his Pre-departure Orientation Seminar (PDOS). He left Philippines on Friday afternoon going to Canada. Our one week stay in Manila was not really good because of the bad weather. Even though the weather was not really good, we were able to visit some parks like Rizal Park also known as Luneta Park, and I also brought him in Manila Zoo.
