Weekend Reading

Happy Chinese New Year!

It was one of those busy weeks where Thursday felt like Friday only to find out that you still had one more workday to get through. Although, I can't complain because I only had a four day week. On Thursday, yesterday, I celebrated Isabela Day (the day for the province) by attending the Bumbanti Festival in Ilagan with Sir Patrick, Sandra, and Sir Junior. It was great fun and I can't wait to share all about it next week on the blog!

Also, it's the year of the Horse! I'm a horse, which I thought meant for a lucky year but after reading my horoscope, we shall see. In addition, schools and banks were closed today for the holiday. We tried to convince the Diocese and Foundation to close their offices as well but the Bishop's response was, "are you Chinese?" Touché.
