Got lost inside UST’s sprawling, romantic campus and somehow missed the actual christening ceremony of my second godson. Managed to join Luke and Faye’s family and friends for the celebratory lunch. Then dropped by CSB to say hi to the debaters… and take outfit shots of this decidedly sedate and breezy getup (pun intended). I have this thing with being girly at special occasions, which R likes. Up to certain point, I think I succeeded with loading up on hopeful happy pills and just enjoying the sort of things which a normal person should be doing.
There’s a perfect Filipino word that summarizes what it feels like to be watching the news this week: “nakakapanlumo.” Disheartening, terrifying, and unbelievable. Firm faith in resilience is all we can hold on to for now. Sincere prayers will also help.
