48 hours down, 48 hours to go...

The plane left at 9:35PM on the dot. We arrived 25 minutes early. Definitely a first for me...

48 of the best hours this month, so far. 48 to go and I am getting sadder by the moment. Whenever I'm here, I never want to go back to Manila. When I'm in Manila, all I think about is the next time I come here (and eat som tam coz I'm takaw like dut...) - crazy I know but I love it here. I love this city more than I love the city I have lived in for the later half of my life.

I want to call this home but I can't.

It was not meant to be.

Just like you and me.

And so, as I need to say farewell to this beautiful city I wish were my own, I need to say goodbye to you too. You, whom I wish were my own too.

Time will heal all wounds.

Pray tell... why do I write such incoherent posts lately?

Hi Stargazer, I am in the USA in North Carolina and I can identify with your problem. I live in the flatlands but am in love with the mountains which are 5 hours away. I get sad every time I have to leave the mountains when I visit. I was in your beautiful country back in 1968 when we landed at Clark Air Force Base. It looked a lot like North Carolina to me at that time. I understand it was destroyed by a volcano eruption later. I have a blog titled "The Simple Life" at and invite you stop in anytime. Have a wonderful weekend
