I have been goin’ to and fro’ Manila and back here in Iloilo recently. It’s nice to try the new restos in Manila or restos & shops I missed or the stores where I get to replenish my staple cosmetics. But by far, the best part of my Manila trips are getting to meet up with my old friends and my sister.
I met up with my longtime classmate/friend in College & in Med School and Pediatric resident physician, Dr. Mercy Sipole. Due to lack of time, Mercy met up with me and my sis in the airport food court. Chat time galore and a lot of catching up….. Yes, it was a nonstop chat fest. And then another classmate/friend in College & in Med School and Occupational physician, Dr. Lou Salibio catch up with us in the airport food court, few minutes before my boarding time, hehe.
During my trip, I also met up with my friend and Med School classmate Dr. June Ann Rosales-de Vera, now a Rehabilitation resident physician in Philippine General Hospital. She toured me around the hospital and introducing her specialization to me. I enjoyed it so much and I got quite intrigued of Rehab Medicine.
But of course, the “best-est” part of all is spending time with my sister dear: bonding to the max, never-ending chikas, food binges and contagious laughter til the wee hours of the night.
